St. Aloysius's Day - patron saint of paper clips
POTARCH, n.The eldest male in a soap opera family.
ABRUPT, adj.Sudden, without ceremony, like the arrival of a cannon- shot and the departure of the soldier whose interests are most affected by it. Dr. Samuel Johnson beautifully said of another author's ideas that they were "concatenated without abruption."
ON THE NEST, adj.To be treating one's bird to a big juicy worm.
Astonishingly Uninteresting Fact
Poem Of The Day
The big red bus comes
Over the hill;
It tramples the artichokes
Late for work.
The clock strikes nine,
And the man with the marrow
Is passing the time.
"Tring, Tring, Tring," shouts the ironmonger,
Merging his iron with the sun.
Another train goes racing by;
The oranges passenge alone.
And hark at the lark;
Its song is so serene.
The woman in the window box
Has the friendliest coral that you've ever seen.
And now the bus has passed us by,
So drink thy cider
And finish thy pie.
