My subtitle promises pies, so here's a pie-related posting.
A few days ago I was taking one of those on-line political polls purporting to tell me my political leanings -- as if I didn't already know -- and came to this question:
Lard shouldn't be a commodity to be bought and sold.
( ) Strongly disagree
( ) Disagree
( ) Agree
( ) Strongly Agree
My first reaction was "Damned health Nazis! How am I supposed to make pie crust without lard? If you want my lard, you'll have to pry it out of my cold, dead, greasy hands!" Then I realized it actually said "land". I still put "Strongly disagree", of course, but not quite so passionately.
I wonder how many of my readers misread my quotation to make it say what it actually said.Posted by Dr. Weevil at June 25, 2002 12:36 AM
