``There's good news for the jellyfish shortage.''
- ``I didn't know we had a jellyfish shortage. Where were we keeping them, in the guest bathroom?''
``We weren't keeping them anywhere.''
- ``Thus explaining the shortage.''
``It's not our shortage I was talking about. We've got as many jellyfish as we need.''
- ``That's not much of a shortage, then.''( Sorry to be late and roughly edited; I'd had to make an emergency visit to Cedar Point. Collapse )
``So maybe they built this at a volunteer university.''
Trivia: The five United States cities which were candidates for the 1952 Olympic Games were Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit, Minneapolis, and Philadelphia. The only European entrants were Amsterdam and Helsinki. Source: Encyclopedia of the Modern Olympic Movement, Editors John E Findling, Kimberly D Pelle. (I don't know whether the prospect of a Detroit Games or a Minneapolis Games strikes me as more fascinating. Detroit was also up for the 1944 Olympics, but lost out to London.)
