Boot Up

Got some items to sell? Give ’em the boot. That’s what the British do. And it’s far less violent than you might imagine: boot sales are the Brit term for the events we’d call flea markets. If you’re thinking it’s a reference to shoes, you’d be wrong: boot is the word used in England to…

Tequila!

With it’s nuanced and carefully chosen lyrics, it’s a pretty unforgettable song. Okay, we lie. Not about the unforgettable part (because it certainly is), but about the lyrics. In fact there’s only one: Tequila! And it’s repeated three times. “Tequila” started out as, basically, a recorded jam session and appeared in early 1958 as the…

Let’s talk dirty.

Okay, not that dirty. As exciting as they might be to some folks, washing machines just aren’t that titillating. But they do account for around one-quarter of the average household’s water consumption. And – more ominously – washing machines are responsible for an estimated 97% of all sock thievery. So time-consuming and labor intensive was the…

Can we be frank?

Well … maybe not. It’s a rather dangerous proposition, really; Americans consume nearly 7 billion hot dogs every summer between Memorial Day and Labor Day. That’s a whole lot of Frankfurters, wieners and footlongs! Our minds have gone to the dogs today for a particular reason: July 23 is National Hot Dog Day. And in…

Okay, okay. We’ll give you 2011. And we’ll even throw in 2010 if you really need it. 2012? Got it, and it’s yours for the asking. Before you get the wrong idea, however, we’d probably clarify. We can’t give you back the days, weeks & months of years past, but we can give you a…

Cool it!

We thought we’d finally discovered The Big Heavy: we received an ad for a 2 ton air conditioning unit. It’s common knowledge that most window units are hardly featherweight, but still! We wondered how large, exactly, was this behemoth of a cooling system? Visions of stories-tall machinery danced in our heads. And then we researched…

Radio Activity

We’re radio active! No fear, though: there’s no need to get out that spiffy lead apron used for X-rays in the dentist’s office. Our radio activity is of a rather benign sort. Harmless. Safe. And rather fun, if we do say so ourselves. Catch us on the air every Saturday morning on NEPA’s ESPN radio…

Like Magic!

Oh ho ho, it’s Magic, you know. Never believe it’s not so! *ahem* We hope you’ll forgive us that little blast from the past (and that you’ll also forgive us for getting that Pilot song stuck in your head as well as ours), but we’ve seldom come across a pet with such an apt name! Magic…
