But if you EAT dandelion greens, will you PISS green?

Karen said...

Pis-en-lit actually DOES mean wet the bed. And it really and truly is the french name for the Crayola colour called Dandelion. Being a kid in bilingual Canada, our crayons had both languages, and that one ALWAYS cracked me up. The deal is, I guess, that dandelion is a tremendous diuretic, and eating too much could, in fact, pis in your lit. teehee!

I love those memes. Hey, so what *does* your handwriting look like?

Teresa Suek said...

Try buffalo mozarrela with fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, salt/pepper and a swig of raspberry vinegar!

Re #44: DANG, Dorothy, that SHOULD have been my answer too! Everybody I know thinks I'm weird because I have all this arcane info stuffed into my head. When they praise me, I always say, "Yeah, if I could just figure out how to make money off the crap in my head, I'd be rich." When I was mulling what my special talent is, I asked my husband, and HE's the one who said writing. But he's also the one who asks me every day (just a few hours ago, in fact), "How do you KNOW such-and-such?" What do you think? A Trivia Face-Off?
