In which Chorus Identifies Irony

("It's like goldy and silvery, only made of iron." Two points to anybody who can identify where the quotation comes from, and who isn't a member of my family.)

WH and I were talking yesterday about how two or three days of dirt liftin' will do great things for toning one's muscles, but also about how much easier the task would have been had we had a Bobcat (the machine, not the kitteh) to help. Isn't funny how people will pay for gym memberships in order to get fit, but will pay extra money in order to limit the physical demands of work itself?

Humans are funny.

On a 100% unrelated note, as a lover of old game shows, I would just like to say that Regis Philbin can't hold a candle to Allen Ludden, and the new format of Password on CBS is a poor substitute for the original, which included the creepy voice-over whispering the password to the audience: "The password is ... turtle."
