The Whale erupts on assorted topics
"Pass the Butter, Marie"
"When I'm forced to endure a song on the radio while waiting for the hog futures report, I grumble, 'Get on with it!' The beat of my contracting intestines is all the rhythm I need.
"Some people get chills and weep when they listen to a piece of music. It would probably kill them to realize they're merely the mindless vessel of a crib-related physiological response rooted in the lullaby. And to those who gain smug intellectual satisfaction dissecting the structure and arrangement of a money-making tune, and then writing about it!, I say, try dissecting a chocolate-pumpkin cheesecake instead."
