  1. There's something that thinks it's clever bouncing around between my ears, trying to escape.
    It's just about everything I can do to hold it back.
    I saw that sometime before 0800 and it's been like an earworm for the eyes ever since.

  3. Two things - I never miss the opportunity to remind the faithful about this guy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ira_Einhorn

    Also, sometime back in the '70s, there was a headline on the back page of the SF Chronicle that went "Scientists Discover Rings Around Uranus," which produced the expected hilarity. Unless I'm mistaken, that's what started newscasters pronouncing it "Your-a-nus."

    1. That Einhorn guy was a piece o' work. And yeah, I laugh every time I hear someone say "YOUR-a-nus."

    2. You know, I'm not exactly certain that 'urine-us' is such a significant improvement on 'yer-anus' after all. . .

Just be polite... that's all I ask.
