Sunday funnies

Soup of the day.

Every cat should have one.

Where can you find fluorescent pink slugs? Where else?

Here's a bit from Fred Allen's radio program, featuring Senator Claghorn (the inspiration for Foghorn Leghorn).

Update: 18 obsolete words that should be salvaged (via Spiny Norman, in the comments).

Notice that the location of the giant pink slugs is also home to "cannibal, carnivorous land snails".

A contribution:

18 obsolete English words that shouldn't be. (via Iowahawk - who I can see "lunting")

A couple of favorites:

Wonder-wench: A sweetheart

Groak: To silently watch someone while they are eating, hoping to be invited to join them

Spermologer: A picker-up of trivia, of current news, a gossip monger, what we would today call a columnist

Tyromancy: Divining by the coagulation of cheese

Resistentialism: The seemingly spiteful behavior shown by inanimate objects

With squirrel: Pregnant — Vance Randolph’s “Down in the Holler: A Gallery of Ozark Folk Speech”

Bonus points if you read that last one in Senator Claghorn's voice.
