I must say that 'I am one who delights in all manifestations of the terpsichorean muse.'

Ah. Thanks. Some day I really will have to watch that. JFTR, though, I've been to the W-dale factory. Yummy!

When I was in HS, some of the really smart guys - literary types - would walk around all day doing little skits with each other and talking about MP. I tried watching it - it just seemed to be the right thing for smart and cultured people to do. But I just couldn't get into it. It just wasn't interesting or funny. This was true well past high school. Then, by accident, I heard the cheese shop skit somewhere. I laughed for days. There are some lines that really make it for me. That's one of them. Another is "Well, it's certainly uncontaminated by cheese."
