I got this joke as a fortune and I'm not sure whether I don't get
the joke or whether I get it but it's not a good joke. Here is the
Q: What does a WASP Mom make for dinner?
A: A crisp salad, a hearty soup, a lovely entree, followed by
a delicious dessert.
Send me your interpretations of the joke. It's a joke interpretation
circus! Festival. Contest. Colloquium.

I was adressing that last sentence to my mother. My mother did not
write those articles with Steven Jay Gould.

In the lounge today, we were generalizing Mr. T. From "I pity the
foo!" we get "There exists an x such that I pity the x!"
That's basically the joke. There were a couple other jokes but they
all reduce to that one.
Speaking of jokes, I've recieved three interpretations of the WASP joke.
Mike's is probably the right interpretation, although it means that
putting the joke into written form can only confuse. We're still
manning the phones to take your joke interpretations.

Gdancer got updated. It's a lot smoother now. I can now recommend it.
Get it. It still depends on the song, though.
I think the reason there are so many MP3 players is that there
is a contest among programmers to come up with the worst conceivable
graphical user interface, and MP3 players are the field of battle.

Dan says that the same thing that goes for MP3 players goes for
window manager themes. So it looks like the graphic
designers are in on this contest as well.

I made a graphic for Mike on Mike's suggestion that Be CEO Jean-Louis
Gassť wear a T-shirt bearing the "forward-looking statements" disclaimer Gassť must
place after every utterance (lest he run afoul of the SEC). Mike
turned the suggestion into a
story and used my graphic, despite the fact that the lines
of text on the graphic don't line up, because I'm a lazy bum. The
T-shirt comes from copyleft's picture of a Segfault T-shirt.

I am grooving on Kris' latest single, No Alternative. It's a
great song, even though it inevitably recalls the compilation disk
of the same name (circa 1993) which had a decent Pavement song (I
think it was Pavement) and the hard-rockin' Verse Chorus Verse
and everything else on it sucked.
