1. How come in sports we say “DE-fense” and “DE-fensive,” but in every other context we say “de-FENSE” and “de-FENSE-ive”? What is the answer? This has been bothering me for weeks now.
2. Here is a question my friend posed to me the other month: How come sometimes on an old-timey Looney Tunes, all of a sudden a character will show up with a GIANT fur coat and a TINY ukelele? That has to signify something to somebody (Grandma Winnie? Can you read blogs in heaven?), but it means nothing to me. WHAT does big-fur-coat-with-tiny-ukelele MEAN!?
Case in point (minute 4:35):
3. “Dessert”? Really? Oats & Beef?
I thought you Sloggers might know the answers to these questions. Because I know you luuuuv knowing stuff. Thanks in advance!
