05/12/2005: My nomination for Catchphrase of the Year....
In a post about Cardinals pitcher Jeff Suppan, Dan wrote "when Suppan's off, his occasional penchant for walking people and his lack of impressive stuff combine to make him the most boring pitcher since somebody put pants on the Kool-Aid Man".
My not-quite-new-year's resolution is to work the phrase "... since somebody put pants on the Kool-Aid Man" into every temporal reference I can make it fit.
And if you follow the link, you'll see that indeed, some demented genius did put pants (ok, more like Bermuda shorts or something in that vein) on the Kool-Aid Man. Actually, he seems to have gotten a whole wardrobe; on the homepage there, for instance, he's taken to wearing a natty tropical themed shirt (open, the better to expose his manly [?] chest), too. Makes you wonder; was the religious right kvetching about K-A M's earlier nudity, and threatening to banish Kool-Aid from their homes (just like the Finns supposedly banned Donald Duck because he never wore pants (if you're too lazy or too captivated by my writing to follow the link, the quick story: that's a legend; the Finns never banned Donald Duck))?
