From a big fan and long-time listener… Sarah Aubry… of parts unknown…

I’m a graphic designer who has been using Greek text, aka Lorem Ipsum, for many years. I was amazed to hear your judge accept “gibberish” for the answer to the question about the meaning of Lorem Ipsum. From http://www.lipsum.com: “Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old…Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance.”

Fishy Correspondence

Brandon Weaver of Johnson, VT who listens on Vermont Public Radio

I was listening to a rebroadcast of a recent show and there was a question that related to sports figures with “fishy” nicknames (Catfish Hunter, etc…). It was stated that the Guppy was a fish that didn’t have a sports figure associated with it. How could you not remember legendary bowler Guppy Troup? I’m not a bowling fan, but I do remember seeing this man on ESPN some years back. I remember that he was wearing gaudy pants; plaid, and the legs differed in color.
