Hey Ann...

Spoken with Joe yet? I'm thinking after dropping Chimera on us, we at least deserve to ask a few follow-up questions. ;)

By the way, can anyway tell me who wrote the ep? I'd like to know specifically who to blame *eg*

Eenie, meenie, minie, moron.

A federal jury in Kansas City is hearing a lawsuit by two African-American sisters which claims that a flight attendant's use of the rhyme "eenie, meenie, minie, moe" was racist and caused them physical and emotional distress, reports the Kansas City Star.

Louise Sawyer and Grace Fuller said they were traumatized when a stewardess on a Southwest Airlines flight said over the intercom, "Eenie, meenie, minie, moe; pick a seat, we gotta go," in an effort to get passengers to take their seats.

Some say the original child's rhyme ended with "catch a nigger by his toe," and the sisters say hearing it on the plane caused one of them to have a seizure later in the day. The flight attendant says she has only ever heard the version that ends "catch a tiger by the toe." [Emphasis added.]

Freakity freaks freaks!
