Everyone says he is crazy. The scarier thing is that he is stupid. You do not know anyone as stupid. You just don’t. [Fran Lebowitz]

    I believe you are thinking about the equal time rule because the Fairness Doctrine has been defunct for many years. Unfortunately, the equal time rule is much weaker than the Fairness Doctrine to reign in deceptive media “news”.

    I’ve only ever eaten the generic escargot snail, but love those. In fact, I keep a pair of live ones as “display animals” in a terrarium. No, I can’t imagine eating those two.

    I need to look into these Mainers. Aquatic/Marine or land-dwelling?

    The Jeopardy question is :

    What is the capital of Melgium?

    Because the artist drew it and lettered it that way.

    (That little moment is almost a trademark of this strip. Sometimes, the “speaker” is a butterfly… or it can be pretty much anything.)

    Right now they are pretty much the least expensive bivalve mollusk you can buy, whether canned or frozen at the grocery, live on ice at the fish market, or at a restaurant, simmered in a sauce with some mix or other of butter, garlic, white wine, tomato sauce, etc.!

    There’s a few large species of barnacle that are much desired gourmet delicacies… especially Gooseneck Barnacles. Loved in Spain, France, and Portugal. Some are farmed, others collected as wild. Canned ones are even found in grocery stores.

    I’ve heard they are harvested for export in California, in part due to over-collecting in Europe.

    Once, padding around in the dark, in socks, I stepped on something. Didn’t know what, but it hurt like the devil. (Or maybe the shock made me think it felt worse than it actually did.)

    Found a chair, flipped on the light, and tried to pull my sock off… but I couldn’t pull it away from the bottom of my foot, which (along with my hand) was dripping blood. I finally maneuvered the sock around so that I could see the damage.

    There had been a flip-to-load stapler on the floor, open, business end pointed up. I had stapled my sock to my foot.

    Equal parts funny and excruciating.

    I loved The Truman Show, pretty much everything about it. But the moment that left me gobsmacked was when Truman realized that the people around him were constantly doing “product placement” commercials where they’d face one of the hidden cameras to rhapsodize about the advertised item:

    >>>>>Meryl : [holding up a jar of cocoa, slipping into advertising mode] Why don’t you let me fix you some of this Mococoa drink? All natural cocoa beans from the upper slopes of Mount Nicaragua. No artificial sweeteners.<<<<<

    >>>>>Truman : [looking around] What the hell are you talking about? Who are you talking to ?<<<<<

    >>>>>Meryl : I’ve tasted other cocoas. This is the best.<<<<<

    The fictitious town he lived in was called Seahaven… almost as cozy as Snug Harbor, don’t you think? Except the weather in Seahaven was better, fully controlled by Christoff, you know.

    And there’s Christoff in panel 2.

    Needless to say, and as always, I’m loving today’s strip.

    To read Wallace is to encounter the familiar, the assuring, the pleasant… like slipping into a perfectly warmed bath.

    But also to expect the unexpected, the wonderful, the beautiful, the surreal, the hilarious.
