I write to you from the St Louis airport, enroute to Iowa City. Looking at the map on the plane, I see that I’ve come a little too far east, but I guess that’s how hubs work. And when you’re traveling on miles and points, that’s how you roll.
I invite my blogreading public to name the following phenomenon:
1. Read a news story.
2. Come up with knee-jerk, “a-ha,” joke about news story.
Larry Craig: “I am not gay.”
3. Google to see if anyone else has come up with it.
4. Find that someone else has already come up with the same lame joke.
5. Give up.
***Or ignore the fact that everyone else has done it and do it better***
