Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nothin’ to Snack With

April 5, 2011

And now, friends, another submission to McSweeney’s Lists section, which will invariably be rejected, since I have clearly aged out of the days when I could effortlessly create submissions they liked. Thankfully, the internet is so entropic, and with such low barriers to entry democratic that I can free my list from the cruel and arbitrary dictates of McSweeney’s and bring it to you directly:

Wu-Tang Donut Flavors
Ghostface Cruller
Boston C.R.E.A.M.
RZAberry Jelly-Filled
Return to the 36 Sprinkles
Ol’ Dirty Frosted

(Also, celebrating, even facetiously, the freedom that the internet grants me to broadcast my words when mediators of public speech deem said words unworthy (or insufficiently amusing, anyway) reminds me of a joke Congressman Anthony Weiner recently told at the Congressional Correspondents’ Dinner (or whatever it’s called): He started by saying that the event was being broadcast on CPSAN 3, so it would be seen by “literally, tens of Americans.” Then he said, “The people at the CNN table are saying, ‘Tens?! What’s their secret?!!'”)

Unrelatedly, since all blog posts go better with a photograph, here is a picture I took Sunday while waiting to pick Anna up at the airport. If you park in the lot of the bowling alley across from the airport, you’re two minutes from the arrival terminal and the planes comes in really low right overhead. It’s fun if you have to wait for an unknown amount of time with a four-year-old and a six-year-old, or even if you are just a grownup who needs to get in touch with his sense of childlike wonder. This photo does little to capture the roaring might of planes landing, but it’s just blurry enough to imply the romance of travel, and that sky is just perfectly blue in exactly the way it was in real life, a way that says, “here comes Spring.”

  1. And, if I zoom to 360% and go to full screen (all possible on my Opera browser), the photo takes up the entirety of my screen and looks IMPRESSIVE!
