Because God Knows *I* Never Mispronounced Anything

John, upon hearing that the Pleiades are this weekend: "Haley's Comet was a hamburger of doom."

    I just ate one of those, but it's not the burger that'll get ya -- it's the vodka.

    And I think it's funny I wrote about mispronouncing things, and called them the Pleiades. I of course meant the Persieds.

    "hamburger of doom" sounds like the cause of a bout of food poisoning - sushi of evil, sausage roll from hell, etc.

    That last comment was, in reality, the only remaining line from Kafka's "lost play" the masterpiece which he finished on his deathbed then promptly through into the fire. A scrap of paper survived, on which was written, "Frog: Harbinger! Harbinger!" The very last line of the play.

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it -- finish the play. If you do, I'll write the hollywood adaptation.

  10. My friend's 3-year old went through a Titanic phase during which she would tell anyone who listened that the Titanic was destroyed when it ran into a huge cheeseburger.

    Those damned meat patties!!
