The Hossa Curse

I'm making this post because I think we should get prepared ahead of time for the brain-slow grade-schoolers that will soon be posting on our board about the Hossa curse.

My own inclination is to have an agreed-upon response for all of us, something odd, something mostly impenetrable for anyone not aware of the joke ... just a brief standard reply that we can all use to end the discussion without having to get into it.

I have three suggestions I came up with just now to give you an idea of what I mean, but I know many of you will have more, and better ones. If the four-headed monster that is this blog thinks it's a good idea, please take it and run with it.

Suggestions:

1. Great story. Compelling, and rich. (Reference to Anchorman when Brian Fantana is on the Panda Watch; this is how Ron Burgundy sums up the story.)

2. The new phone book's here! (Reference to The Jerk, where Steve Martin's character gets excited over nothing at all.)

3. Precious bodily fluids. (Reference to General Jack Ripper in Dr. Strangelove ... he's just a colossal lunatic with no tangible grasp on reality ... an appropriate response to someone trying to make me acknowledge a curse.)

 

Alright. So there you have it. Do people read these things regularly? Let this disappear into the dusty corners of Internet, I guess ...
