In honour of Passover, and Dash’s gig roasting potatoes, the daily salad is being (temporarily) replaced with daily potatoes. Ah potatoes, full of starchy goodness! Actually potatoes are extra wonderful on Passover, when Potato Vodka is Dash’s number 3 source of drunken merriment behind only Manischewitz and Slivovitz (but only in its 70% alcohol variety).
As Senior Notwithabang…’s already posted today, and I’m being called to help prepare Matzo Balls, I’ll leave you with only two tidbits (and, sigh, no theory). The first: how baseball announcers make poetry. In today’s Phillies-Braves, the announcer bespoke this little ditty: “Langerhans/ he too/ 0 for 2.” Poetry in action…
And lastly, your friend and mine William Safire, who, believe it or not, is not the inspiration for our WOTD columns, had this choice piece in his column yesterday on the collocation “sweet spot”:
“It is used as an alternative to “soft spot” in “I have a sweet spot in my heart for him/her/it”; it is also mistakenly used in lieu of G-spot, supposedly an erogenous zone.”
Supposedly an erogenous zone? Why does William Safire doubt the existence of the G-Spot? A leading question, I know. But more importantly, why has he turned his column into an anti-Women’s orgasm bully pulpit? And people say we’re misogynistic.
