My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nine...?

Pluto’s not a planet?!?! So all that gibberish about nine planets is out?!?! This is just the tip of the iceberg, you know… Next, they’re going to tell you that Rhode Island isn’t really a state, Europe’s not a continent (no kidding, it’s physically a part of Asia), and that there are only 30 flavors of ice cream at Baskin Robbins. I tell you, this is a slippery slope…

Mystery of the Week

We were walking through John Wayne airport after arriving from Iowa the other day, and we noticed a sign over a trash bin for aerosol cans, deodorant, hairspray and… Tag. You mean to tell me that Tag is in an entirely separate category? You know what it is – it’s that body spray for men with the commercials depicting young men being accosted by attractive women after using it. Is it really so different that it deserves its own listing on a banned substances list? Please explain in 100 words or less.
