About that New Yorker cover


Not to state the painfully obvious, but if they'd just gone with "Blue Cheese," they would have avoided all this controversy.

Alison? I thought you liked controversy. Isn't that why you fought with your sister over the name of your plants? :D

Quote of the COntroversy of the most controversial post:

"You want to know what really is controversial ? Hearing people use the word controversy all the time. Jeez look for a new word people. That's why they call you the NEWS cause I want to hear something new. !!!!!"

Obviously the New Yorker doesn't read your blog, Alison, otherwise they would have jumped all over your idea.

But don't you think they knew it was going to be controversial? How could they not? No, they knew exactly what they were doing. Everyone was talking about it yesterday and it was on all the news shows. You can't buy the kind of publicity they're getting.

This is too good not to pass on: tinyurl.com/6bjlz7

Don't you hate when that happens? But maybe it's just the Bulgarian version of turndown service.

I blame myself. A mouse/Nueman hybrid is much more high minded.
