If you have to ask...

Another example of the "names are destiny" phenomenon.

Does anyone have a hankering to see a short comedy about polyamory? (NSFW at all.) Here's "Polly Wally."

Well, that was...off-topic.

Yeah, I know, the poly thread was a few weeks ago (and crikey, it's now got spam comments appended to it—albeit mostly hapless spam comments without fruitful links).

Sorry 'bout that.

I think the Amigone funeral homes back home were the first example of wordplay in my life when I was say 6 and, on learning about death, realized that name was a bit odd when we'd drive by them.

I always wondered if they specialized in fake funerals or in resurrections or, say, zombification, to make the "amigone" name make more sense.

Does Amigone rhyme with Antigone? As in Antigone Rising?

Antigone as in "Greek Tragedy" was what Orange was getting at, maybe.

Is this some sort of bletiquette gaffe or something, making references to the blog's past? Like if I mentioned time-cubes or promiscuous smurfs I would risk I would become a social pariah for a day?

Orange, I will never have a blog. But if I ever have one, I will welcome you there, and any allusion to past events.

I have no idea what that polyamory episode was really about.

On a cross country trip we saw more than a few examples of mortuary wordplay. The two I remember most:

Somen and Bonin funeral home, platteville, wis.
('some' of course is Greek for body)

Cease funeral home park rapids, minn

correction: I googled and it is Bonin Soman Funeral home.

I think there are enough of these for a book.

even more funereal wordplay! re: "thanks to 'Thane' for the link"

'thanatos' is Greek for 'death'
