--- 1 ---Just as I was grumbling that the spelling words in my daughter's second grade class are easier than last year's words, the teacher threw us a curve. One of last week's bonus spelling words was narwhal. Of course, everyone (except for me) knows that a narwhal is is a medium-sized toothed whale that lives year-round in the Arctic. Is this a word that comes up regularly in conversations among second graders?

Vatican is raising the importance of sports by fielding its own cricket team. I wonder if the team will get a little help from above. It reminds me of when Bill Swerski's Superfans (on SNL) did football predictions in the 90s and wondered who would win if the Chicago Bears played against God. As I recall, they said God would win but the score would be close!

Customer: What is this, pork or veal?
Moe: Whadya’ order?
Moe: Then it’s veal!
