Unexpectedly, Joe-Pourri is back for another gallop down the runway. Let’s see what’s happening today:
• Internet historians are playing Sherlock to discover the day that the phrase “going viral” went viral. In related developments, Joe-Pourri appears to be number 23,345,765 in the “waiting to go viral” queue. Thinking of switching to the “catching a virus” line, which is much shorter.
• Are you aware that June is Brain Awareness month? Unfortunately, since I found out, I’ve been obsessively aware of my brain. I became aware that it itched a little, and I can’t reach it to scratch. Also, I don’t think my brain fits quite right in my skull. The right side seems to bump into my head bone, and the left side is too loose. Well, I’m sure next month, when it isn’t Brain Awareness month, I’ll forget all about it.
• Word from Capitol Hill is that Congress is considering opening a chic new breakfast bistro in the Capitol Rotunda, serving hot, fresh waffles. A final vote is expected by the end of the decade.
• Yesterday was the longest day of the year. Thank heaven that’s over. Of course, “longest day” means the most daylight hours. Vampires really hate that day, as it leave so little time for skulking and such.
Join us next time, when Joe-Pourri takes another ramble through the woods of the latest global happenings.
