One-Eyed _________ Snake

I think I'm at the point in my life where I'd like to refer to my pants (and other's pants) as trousers. It just feels right.

Worlds Tiniest Violin

I was walking home today, and I walked by a violin maker's shop. You'd think there would be a more glamorous name, other than "violin maker" for what seems like a glamorous profession. I suppose you could use "luthier," but that's not really specific to violins. Oh well.

Stupid Swiffer People

There's a commercial for Swiffer (I think) that's set in a courtroom. There is a witness on the stand and the Swiffer is, I have no idea why, the defendant. The lawyer examining the witness turns and asks very dramatically, "Can you point to the Defendant?!?" I think what they meant was, "Can you point to the perpetrator?" or "Can you point to the culprit" or something like that. It doesn't make any sense to ask a witness if they can point to the defendant. All that proves is that they understand what the word "defendant" means. Someone should talk to the commercial writers for Swiffer .
