You're from Acme, Michigan? Did Wile E. Coyote live nearby?

"You're from Acme, Michigan? Did Wile E. Coyote live nearby?"
Silly person, he didn't LIVE there, he just supported the local manufacturer.
As for that poor lady at Cyanide Falls, I bet her husband Ben wasn't there at all. I heard she was traveling with her lover Hugo First.
There's also a Climax, Colorado.

Oops, I meant Cyanide POINT.
DXB, was your "come again" directed at me? Haven't you heard of that book, Tragedy on the Cliff, by Eileen Dover? The illustrator was Hugo First.
Or maybe that wasn't the point of confusion? Or maybe you weren't talking to me?
Or maybe I should go back to cataloging books, which is what they pay me for, instead of, um, goofing off?

Well, no...embarrassed pause...actually I was making a pun around the last line of your immediately preceding post. Sorry about that.

Aw shucks. Now *I'm embarassed. It's early in the day. Here, anyway. The only correct response to the question "Come again?" is "Sure, my place or yours?"
When my acquaintance revealed she had graduated from Climax High School (which is how I heard of the place) there was the predictable round of wink-wink nudge-nudge commentary.

Yeah...sigh...we're a predictable lot, us human beans.
#100682 - 05/02/03 05:18 AM Climax: Michigan vs Colorado
Climax, Michigan-972 feet
Climax, Colorado-11,302 feet
http://www.pe.net/~rksnow/micountyclimax.htmIn reply to:
Climax is supposed to be the highest point of elevation in the state of Michigan!
I think there are some Yoopers that might not agree with that, but then again, the Lower Penninsula's history of ignoring the existence of the Upper Penninsula unless it's for hunting, fishing and camping is quite well known and the Yoopers could care less about the trolls, anyway.
#100683 - 05/02/03 05:30 AM About Kalamazoo
I had always heard that Kalamazoo meant "boiling waters" so I was a little surprised when I found this:
The name Kalamazoo comes from the Indian word "Kikalamazoo" which means the mirage of reflecting river.
I was also quite surprised to learn that apparantly there is more than one Kalamazoo
Kalamazoo, West Virginia
