A hit ABC sitcom of the 70s about a detective with Alzheimer’s who is trying to track down . . . Himself?
Disgraced police chief turned detective Sidney Tatum was at the end of his rope. His ex-wife had just won custody. His bank was foreclosing on his home. And he had been diagnosed with some crazy cancer. Then he received a call from “Mr. X,” claiming that he had delivered the evidence that got Tatum fired and, worse still, “Mr. X” had slept with Tatum’s wife. The manhunt of all manhunts was about to begin.
But how does a man track down himself?
commetism (n): the belief one is on an island though one is clearly surrounded by land.
Coined in 2004 by venerated journalist Ross Foss of the Main Street Journal, comnetism came directly out of the hubris associated with the Bush Presidency.
At a Tampa, FL convention, when asked about Florida in the upcoming Presidential election after the immense controversy of 2000, Bush replied “This Island, this island will be my island.”
chenso (v): to slowly become attracted to cheese.
usage: Tom chensoed his prized Swiss after the odor began to linger at his nostrils.
history: Cheese-making dates back to the Middle East. However, it was not until the ancient Greeks and Romans that the chensites, or cheese-lovers, first appeared. Historically, society has been less accepting to chensites than other fetish groups.
Greek mythology cites Aristaeus, minor God and son of Apollo and the huntress Cyrene, as the first chensite.
Because the first cheeses were more properly curds, which tended to produce more sour varieties (resulting in obvious love-making difficulties) chensoing would not come into practice until the 1st century, A.D. when Roman historian Piny the Elder recorded the successful creation of the hard cheese now more commonly known as “Swiss Cheese.” With the discovery of Propionibacter shermani, the bacteria which gives Swiss Cheese its distinctive holes, the chensite community began to flourish.
