True Confession

I have seen approximately 3,500 Kay Jewelers commercials, and mockingly sung along with their tagline 3,498 of those times, but it never occurred to me until tonight that the tagline "every kiss begins with Kay" comes from the fact that the word "kiss" actually begins with the letter K. My SAT verbal was what again?

If it makes you feel better, I just noticed that about a month ago... We brilliant idiots need to stick together.

One of my favorite moments in college was when I shamefacedly admitted to my smartest friend that I had just figured out that the phrase "for all intensive purposes" didn't exist and that it was actually "for all intents and purposes". She looked at me for a second and said "seriously????" and when I said yes, she said "oh thank God, I just figured that out about three weeks ago, I thought I was a moron".

"Family Guy creator and voice actor Seth MacFarlane said the November 11th episode (Lois Kills Stewie) was the last episode produced under his watch and there are no more new episodes ready. Fox says they will complete the last three episodes written, voiced and animated without MacFarlane's final approval to air during the remainder of November, which he termed 'a colossal dick move' in an interview with Variety."

Pardon the crude language, but this is just further proof that Seth MacFarlane is awesome.

Be of good cheer. It's the smart people who notice these things about their mis-hearings.

my word verification is oyfox. I have no idea what that signifies, but I always love it when the letters are pronounceable and look like words.

Oy, fox. I like it.

We have a mattress company called Sleepys in MA (and perhaps elsewhere) that's similar. Their tagline is "Trust Sleepys for the REST of your life."

That one I got. But if it makes you feel better, growing up I always thought the doxology said "praise him all creatures, hear me Lo" (as in Lo being short for Lord) instead of "praise him all creatures here below".

One of the kids I taught in summer preschool a couple years ago thought the song "hallelu, hallelu, hallelu, hallelujah" ended with "crazy the Lord" not "praise ye the Lord".

And more recently, I was watching the Superbowl at college and turned to my roommate to ask her how many points the team was going to get since they were going for the 2-point conversion instead of the field goal.

I think it's healthy for every intelligent human being to have a blond moment every now and then.

Would that be like my assuming that the Trans-Siberian Orchestra was actually from Russia?
