A bit of silliness (with correction)

This weekend, Mexicans are celebrating Cinco de Mayo. It commemorates the victory of the Mexican army in battle against the French. Germans have something similar; it's called every weekend.

This is quite old, but I rediscovered it and it's one of my favorites. I submitted a Top 10 list for Late Night with david Letterman, which was rejected as "not topical and too intellectual."

Top 10 Words That Sound Like Girls' Names
10.) Chlorine
9.) Bayonet
8.) Patina
7.) Mandolin
6.) Rubeola
5.) Surly
4.) Debris
3.) Vendetta
2.) Abdicate
1.) Copra

Mr. Quick,

We believe there is no merit to your claim of theft of intellectual property. While your cable access show and "Dollhouse" do both feature a female character whose personality can be programmed, there is no other similarity between "Dollhouse" and your show "Skankbot."

I just discovered that Wynn Davis has never beaten me in a race! We're both doing Ice Age, so that should change next week.

Correction: Wynn beat me (and everyone) at the Superior 50K and the In Yan Teopa and he was ahead of me - by a lot, even though he had a bad day - at Afton. I guess old age has selectively removed some of my memory.

You might want to check the race results from the Superior 50K last year.

I believe he beat you there, but I might be mistaken.

Just rechecked: Wynn isn't in the results from the Superior 50K.

And I dropped from Voyageur last year, he dropped the year before.

If there is one I missed, it might be In Yan Teopa of a few years ago, but I think I'm right.

Man, I'd watch Skankbot! It sounds like the FUTURE of skankiness.

What station is it on?
