    Ah, b.o.b., been following you for quite some time, have never commented, but today I’ve got to say in the spirit of the season, “You make my heart sing! Oh, and laugh.” Thank you.

    BTW, I’m still trying to get the gnu and tiler story. I’m Canadian… does that make a difference? ; – B.

    • There’s no reason why anyone outside the U.S. would get that play on words, unless he/she had studied U.S. history rather extensively. “Tippecanoe and Tyler Too” is a campaign song from the 1840 U.S. presidential election. “Tippecanoe” was William Henry Harrison (you can look up “Battle of Tippecanoe” if you’re curious about how he got that nickname), and Tyler was his running mate, John Tyler. In 1840, Alexander Coffman Ross wrote a campaign song praising Harrison and Tyler and denigrating the incumbent president, Martin Van Buren. The song is all but forgotten today, but the title became a famous campaign slogan that all schoolchildren in the United States used to learn about back in the old days. (Yes, I’m definitely showing my age here.) Thanks for asking. 🙂

  4. I love the turf war one–what timing!
    it’s the time of year for it. What’s funny is one day I had a fed ex truck show up in my driveway, and not 10 minutes later the UPS truck. Man, if only the UPS guy was there a few minutes earlier. I always like to imagine they give each other hairy eyeballs and a wide berth when they pass each other into a business or residence.

    Get DHL and the USPS drivers in there and it might be a small scale version of the Anchorman rumble scene.
