The fast food signs of Memphis are a never-ending fountain of memorable prose. We're especially fond of the new Arby's campaign, although "Sliders: Marvels of Meatcraft" sounds less like a sandwich promotion and more like a porn movie. Or a History Channel special event.
On a related note, have you seen the incredibly fair deal being offered by the Union Avenue Krystal? Buy one, get one Spicy Chik Biscuit.
That's just about as equitable a transaction as one could hope for. It's a better guarantee than you get from most drive-through windows, and so much nicer than "buy one, get bent."
"On Dec. 21, 1970, Elvis Presley visited Richard Nixon in the Oval Office. On Feb. 21, 1972, President Nixon visited China. On April 16, 1972, two giant pandas — Ling-Ling and Hsing-Hsing — arrived at the National Zoo in Washington." — Washington Post columnist John Kelly on "incongruity," "cause and effect," and why "we must name the National Zoo's new panda cub after the King of Rock and Roll."

But we must not forget that one brought us unforgettable music. The other opened the door to China. Together, they brought us giant pandas."
