The world is a busy place and you may have missed a thing or two while you were looking the other way. Here are a few items of note that may have escaped your notice:
At the urging of Burnt Orange Nation and Every Day Should Be Saturday, Doug Gillett ran his Bloggerpalooza photos through the celebrity-similarity-o-meter and discovered that I look like some actor I've never heard of and Doug looks like Elle Macpherson. Frankly, I don't see it.
I'll never look at "Sirens" the same way again.
My recent mention of U Dub Dish inspired a Dawg Sports reader to rise to the defense of Georgia's use of the term "Dawg" and note the uniquely regional use of that spelling.
I have to agree. "Dawg" is the Southern pronunciation of "dog." It is commonly known that "dog" spelled backwards is "god"; it is worthy of note, however, that, when you take the Southern pronunciation of "dog" and spell it backwards, you get the northern pronunciation of "god."
Think about it: D-A-W-G is how we say "dog" in the South, as in "How 'bout them 'Dawgs!" . . . but G-W-A-D is how they say "god" in New York City, as evidenced by Chandler Bing's annoying ex-girlfriend from "Friends."
"Oh . . . mwy . . . gwad!"
Finally, Il Duce is a preening, pompous, self-aggrandizing micro-manager, but at least Michael Adams is a first-class fundraiser, right? Actually, Paul Westerdawg has called our attention to the fact that this popular perception simply isn't true.
The current president of the University of Georgia is a public relations disaster and, despite his reputation, he isn't good with money. Why are we keeping Il Duce around again?
