VPILFs, Veronica and Vocabulary

It has often been said (OK, never) that politics and bubblegum make strange bedfellows, but junk news junkies who are fans of the musical genre hit the trifecta this week. First, there were those Brady Bunch and Jonas Brothers name droppings in relation to the National Democratic Convention, and today John McCain announced Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his VP running mate. BG&OD listeners might remember Sarah from her work as a sexy steno in show fave Adam Ant's "Goody Two Shoes" video from the early '80s. Enjoy, and be sure to join us in the chat room 7 p.m. tonite PST -- for a back-to-school show with an emphasis on Schoolhouse Rock! 

Editor's note: I'm joking--that lady is not really Sarah. But to enjoy a clip from Sarah's days as a beauty pageant contestant, be sure to go here.


the question on everyone's mind

And Google bears me out on this.... But what the hell is a flurge / flirge / flerge / however it's spelled? And how is Hillary Clinton one?


 I guessed it was First Lady I'd Rather [ something]. Only thing I can find on Google however is First Lady I'd Rather Get Elected, and I doubt Hill would be offended by that! Becky

Flurge, flirge, flerge . . . try FLIRJ

For this one, I checked Urban Dictionary as soon as I saw the SNL bit. Turns out I didn't spell it right, though, because as of today, the acronym FLIRJ is right there on the beloved Dictionary's home page, http://www.urbandictionary.com/. And the "RJ" is, indeed, a sexual reference. See this link to the full list of definitions for the term: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=FLIRJ (I'm posting from work, so I'm exercising some delicacy here.)
