Tasty Italian food? Perhaps an invigorating swim in the Dirty Water o’ the River Charles? Being called a “Dillbucket” whilst crossing the street? O, the infinite possibilities that Townie Town provides the idle masses!

One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn’t belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song?

Did you guess which thing was not like the others?
Did you guess which thing just doesn’t belong?
If you guessed this one is not like the others,
Then you’re absolutely…right!

Swamp Yankees

Ruth Schell’s 1963 article, “Swamp Yankee” in American Speech goes into detail about the characteristics and usage associated with the term. She claims that it is used predominantly in Rhode Island, eastern Connecticut and occasionally southeastern Massachusetts, to describe: “a rural dweller-one of stubborn, old-fashioned, frugal, English-speaking Yankee stock, of good standing in the rural community, but usually possessing minimal formal education and little desire to augment it. Swamp Yankees themselves react to the term with slight disapproval or indifference…The term is unfavorably received when used by a city dweller with the intention of ridiculing a country resident; however when one country resident refers to another as a swamp Yankee, no offense is taken, and it is treated as good-natured jest.

I chilled with the Swamp Yankees on the South Shore this weekend and I use the term as a “city dweller with the intention of ridiculing a country resident.”

On Sunday nights, those of us who live at Manhome usually create a feast for ourselves, during which we contemplate the exciting life we’re living, the exciting life we’ve lived, the future, the past, Pablo, our goals, our failures, our hopes, our dreams, and guacamole.

Chuch, ya’ll.

Someone Finally Did It: Made a Mouse into a Mouse

My favorite line: “It’s easier to fit a small object into a large mouse than a large object into a small mouse, so err on the side of caution. You can always fill extra space with cotton balls.”

OK vote for one, people.  The winner shall be enthroned in my forthcoming office space of the gods.

And then peace doves will fly through Anbar province.

“If the occupation leaves, all acts of violence in Iraq will end due to less suicide bombers, and the interference of neighboring countries will be unjustified,” said Qassim Uthman, a 51-year-old teacher.
