The information that fascinates me the most is not that these ships are so far inland, but how deep in the ground they are.

HAHAHAHAHAHA

WOUNDED DEER, Massachusetts – Emily Dickinson College sophomore Fawn Liebowitz died suddenly last week in a kiln explosion on campus. Liebowitz, 20, a sociology major from Fort Wayne, Indiana, was tragically killed while firing a pot in the new kiln in Sylvia Plath Hall. “Messy” was how Wounded Deer Fire Chief Michael Redman described the scene of the accident. “It was hard to tell the pot shards from the body parts,” said the pyrodefense professional. “She just blew like a frog sucking on a cherry bomb,” Redman added. The cleanup of Plath Hall has been further complicated by a thin coat of glaze that has affixed many of the body parts to the light fixtures and hand railings. In the wake of this tragedy, there has been talk among Emily Dickinson students of renaming Plath Hall to Fawn Hall. Until she was blown to bits, friends would say that Fawn’s best feature was her smile. Her roommate, Shelly Dubinsky (sophomore, primitive cultures), described Fawn as “a special friend who liked to share her thoughts and experiences, and who had a curiosity about life and relationships.” Her long-time boyfriend (they were “engaged to be engaged”), Eric “Otter” Stratton of nearby Faber College, was in shock when he first learned of Fawn’s passing. “I just talked to her last week. She was going to make a pot for me,” Stratton said while attempting to hold back tears. Services have already been held. In lieu of flowers or donations, the family requests that friends express their grief by posting comments on line at: www.myspace.com/crazycueball.

“He’s cactus” (dead)

<Australians pride themselves on slang, from the Outback whimsy of Waltzing Matilda to the rustic charm of “Crocodile Dundee.” At the University of Queensland, international pharmacy students learn colloquialisms such as “feeling crook” (unwell) and “he’s cactus” (dead).>

Australian Rules Football, a confounding sport Down Under, gets a ‘Footytionary’ of its jargon, converted to Chinese; clangers, posters, bananas, speccies.

Tell us how you really feel. Let it all out.

"Which leaves Donald Trump as the only alternative, not merely because he is less awful than Hillary Clinton – leprosy is less awful than Hillary Clinton – but because the election of a tacky jerk like Donald Trump is the only thing that could ever motivate the elite to rediscover checks and balances upon executive power."

Ha, my wife is half Polish so I was familiar eight the expression. But I agree, as much as I refuse to participate, it's still our circus. Sadly, there's not a thing we can do about it as long as the bulk of voters continue to support the Republican she Democrat parties.

<Cleveland Bagel’s bagel is like its location: closer to New York than Montreal. It is boiled in water and malt syrup, which gives it a crunchy skin, and then it is baked in a convection oven. The result is a doughy chew that leaves your jaw sore until lunch.>

Sounds like a bad pretzel; good pretzels are boiled in water and caustic soda, bad ones in water and syrup.

Okay, now I feel much better.

You had me up to the "American wine list" part.

Sugar, Spice, Wall of Death Indians

<When I was three, my dad showed me the movie Heart Like a Wheel, about the female drag racer Shirley Muldowney. Then, he took me to a drag race in Nebraska and introduced me to her. From that time on, I’ve always wanted to be a racer. I raced four wheelers, and at 14, I started drag racing a 1969 Camaro my dad rebuilt. But eventually, I fell in love with antique motorcycles—Excelsior boardtrackers, Wall of Death Indians and Harley-Davidson Panheads and Knuckleheads.>
