I haven't seen this mundane expression used since 1956, why has it arisen to prominence suddenly, and what should be the punishment for using it?

The punishment should be two weeks at Camp Copperhead, where you will be "re-educated" and made aware of the dangers of "flying blue" and its links to Fascist leanings.

I have them on retainer. Whenever a salesperson calls me, I transfer the call to them forthwith and they tie them up for 45 minutes with long-winded dissertations on their ailments and on the impossibility of finding a good can of chicken soup anymore. They are indispensable.

Maybe it's because most of these passing thoughts are more like something that was passed.

Oh, lord.. I think being stuck in Lodi would be punishment enough. But what if it happened again after that?

As far as I know, for all intents and purposes, in my humble opinion and to the best of my knowledge if I recall correctly, only time will tell; as it remains to be seen whether a passing thought will stand the test of time.

I am reluctant to jeopardize my tenure by taking a position on matters of such controversial nature as that of cliches. After all, according to Dr. Hiram W. Bildungsroman, cliches constitute 99.99% of human thought (of which among males under 50, 99.99% of that is about cliches regarding sex). Thus, rather than being party to causing discontent among my eminent colleagues, I will decisively vacillate, come down hard on being soft, directly confront the matter through sedulous evasion, and unambiguously make my position safely muddy.

For practical purposes I'm a single parent with a 3 year old. He drinks whole milk, I drink skim.

So last night I was approaching my bedtime. I chugged the jug instead of pouring it in a glass. Although I left the fridge door open for 5-10 seconds, it occurred to me in a passing thought that I probably saved energy by not dirtying a glass and having to wash it.

Howard Hughes had aviation engineers design a bra for Jane Russell for the film THE OUTLAW (1943). Restraining unruly, riotous, civil disobedient breasts is heavy duty work.

Isn't there another story about Hughes and the lovely Jane's audition, or is that a myth?

@ Copper...I wouldn't call two months in a Zero punishment. Sure, it's got a weak damage model, but so had the real Zero. But it is one of the best dogfighters in the game.
