Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, have you seen that amazing new book about former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy, the one taken from hours of taped interviews with her just months after her husband was assassinated?
Excuse me? Are we talking about the same book?
Sure. I’m not even finished with it, and already I’m struck by her vivid chowder memories of Jack Kennedy:
“He’d come home, and then it would be fish chowder….”
“I remember we had fish chowder. You could still sit outside.”
“I mean, you had what he loves – his fish chowder – and he was still picking Cornelius Ryan’s brains about ‘The Longest Day.’”
Blog Guy, it seemed to me that Britain’s Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, really had to do some silly stuff on their long trip to Canada.
I mean, cowboy hats, a stagecoach, canoes, stuff like that.
Don’t worry about William and Catherine. At least they managed to avoid visiting fishmongers, which is the worst royal duty there is.
I say, my good man, are you the local fishmonger?
Well, I must say, there is a vile odor here!
You smelt something bad? Say, did you come to carp, or are you here just for the halibut? Get it? Halibut? I got a million of ‘em!
