An Easter Egg In My Stocking!

It’s only Monday, but it’s going to be really hard to beat this entry for worst mixed metaphor of the week*:

“It’s an Easter egg hunt, looking for eggs out there. And when you come up with something like this, it’s Christmas.”

This is from an interview with the guy who thinks he’s found a document with the original recipe for Coca Cola (readable or watchable at just about any news outlet in the known universe).

This quote demonstrates a special kind of accidental genius, in the way one holiday suddenly becomes another. It could only have been better if the eggs were found in a stocking, or under a tree.

Check back later in the week for a more serious post!

[*Just to be clear: there is no actual weekly “worst mixed metaphor contest.” But at times like this I think it might be a good idea to hold one!]

    I am curious to find out what blog platform you have been using? I’m experiencing some minor security issues with my latest website and I’d like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any suggestions?

    • As you’ve probably figured out, this is a WordPress blog. I know they’ve had security issues of their own, but they’ve seemed very minor (and none have ever affected me…they always seem like server side glitches).
      I can’t speak for other platforms…I’m not really familiar with them. I know a few folks who think highly of both blogger and livejournal, but I have no personal experience with either (and the majority of people I know who’ve built blogs have migrated to WordPress).
      Here’s a quick article that might be helpful:
