Contradiction in Terms
You say to-may-toe; I say toh-mah-tah. Deal with it.

Today is MOTH-ER DAY, which has nothing to do with mommies, but instead celebrates people who collect moths. Y'know, like that guy in Silence of the Lambs...

Quoth my good friend to her current paramour...
"I'm not going to be your clinging girlfriend. I've been there, I've done that. I'm through."

You go, sugar!

in the news today
Well-known cartoon mom Marge Simpson is getting a top-to-toe makeover for her upcoming stint as a cover girl for men's magazine Maxim. She is set to literally let her hair down as she poses provocatively on all fours wearing a wet, low-cut dress. It's "a radical departure..." says editor-in-chief Keith Blanchard. "She's the sexiest mama in all of toon town, especially that voice-- arrghh!" The team behind The Simpsons TV show helped create the sketches for the special issue.

What is a grilse?

answer to yesterday's question
'Biro' is the British term for a pen that uses a small ball as the point of transfer of ink to paper. In other words, it's a ballpoint pen. The weird part is, there's actually a club in Germany that is dedicated to biro collecting-- they meet twice a year, are planning a trade fair, and one of their members actually boasts more than 60,000 pens in his collection.

Biro-biro lang: Ariel, Jonette, and Vin. And yeah, that was a pretty cringe-worthy quip, but Ariel said it first, so he gets the blame... and the Smartypants.

Nikki Alfar is really not as sexy as El's illustration would have you believe... but she doesn't mind if you think of her that way.
