The Crux of the biscuit is the apostrophe: The song "Stinkfoot" (Frank Zappa, RIP) juxtaposes man and dog, aesthetic from sensual, ethical versus animal. Just as the apostrophe-shaped crease in an English, Southern, or, for that matter, a dog biscuit points to an imagined separation between upper and lower, so does the apostrophe in "can't, don't, shouldn't, couldn't, wouldn't, isn't", etc. poin...t to an assumed"not". The "not", the bar, the limits and boundaries which we humans create, then impose on the animals and our animal nature. Perhaps this is human nature, the dark disgust for existence per se, for the heady smelly mixture of life and decay which man's best friend finds so entrancing. In short, the stink isn't in your toes, nor in your nose, but in your mind. Joe Carroll - DeMatha High School English Literature teacher. - updated 2014-03-07 15:40:54 UTC

Taste of Lincoln Park this weekend. I think I might bring the camera down and shoot a few friend's bands on Saturday. Comment

My kids and I have a game in the car on the way to school where we play spelling bee. They like to create names for themselves and character parameters, changing their voices etc. Before the spelling challenge starts they both get to pretend to walk on stage for a brief interview and describe themselves. That is my favorite part of the game. They come up with hilarious stuff. It's so funny to me that lately they have been so into playing this game as opposed to listening to the radio or other activities. My daughters were both so excited to learn that they would be able to participate in their school spelling bee. Hopefully they will still have as much fun in their real spelling bee tonight! Comment
