Cody’s Wit and Wisdom

  • Driving by a Tesla charging station, I wondered aloud what the collective noun for Tesla would be. I suggested a clutch, which really makes no sense seeing as they have none. But Cody, in brilliant form, suggested a spark. A spark of Teslas.
  • I needed some onion for a recipe and asked Cody if we had any. “Yes, we have about an Ogre’s toenail of onion,” he casually informed me. An apt description for the amount of onion we had left. To be more specific, an Oger’s big toenail worth of onion. Enough for what I needed anyway.
Yup, that looks about right.

    Not a very precise unit of measurement, but what it lacks in precision it makes up for in mental imagery.

      I agree. And if I were to take the time to imagine the smell of an Ogre’s toenail, an onion would be near the top of my list.
