Debby Witt's Comments
"One warm spring night in 2011, a young man named Travis Hughes stood on the back deck of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity house at Marshall University, in West Virginia, and was struck by what seemed to him—under the influence of powerful inebriants, not least among them the clear ether of youth itself—to be an excellent idea: he would shove a bottle rocket up his ass and blast it into the sweet night air."
And the rest of the paragraph:
"And perhaps it was an excellent idea. What was not an excellent idea, however, was to misjudge the relative tightness of a 20-year-old sphincter and the propulsive reliability of a 20-cent bottle rocket. What followed ignition was not the bright report of a successful blastoff, but the muffled thud of fire in the hole."

John, the first car I ever drove was a 1948 Packard, in 1964. My parents owned 2 cars at the time - that and a 1952 Nash Rambler. Both companies are gone now, of course, although you could argue that Nash survived since it merged with Hudson to form AMC, which was later acquired by Chrysler.

That was back in the days before government bailouts, of course, so it was survival of the corporate fittest.

John - not urinal-related, but if you've ever listened to Messiah (or any similar choral music from the Baroque era, you'll be aware of how phrases are repeated (sung) over and over. I can't think of Messiah without thinking about how the phrase "We like sheep have gone astray" is reduced to "we like sheep" and repeated for several minutes.
