Seems like a little much to throw out another oil spill joke on the site, when we've already done it twice before. But since today's BEQ Fan of the Moment calls Biloxi, Mississippi, home and I reckon they're due for environmental destruction in, oh, about a month, I figured he's equipped to make these sorts of wry observations. Take it away Peter Abide:
Spent extended pre-holiday weekend helping chaperone 25 graduating seniors on an unofficial trip to Montego Bay (their first "legal" drinks). "Montego" is derived from the Spanish word for "lard", which now seems appropriate after the all-inclusive food and alcohol package at our hotel. This pic was taken from my balcony on Top Kill Friday. Unfortunately, the only successful top kill that day was the puzzle and the tip of that Cohiba.
Let's pull out the checklist: puzzle, booze, cigars (none for me, thank you, but I approve), working on a netbook when you should be out enjoying the weather. That's a fourpeat in my book. Nice job! How can I sign up for one of those trips? Sidebar: Astute readers will note that Peter has shown his fandom of the site before as he had contributed this stellar theme back in February. Anyway, for his bravado, he'll receive a copy of the "Diagramless" book. Keep those fan pics/stories pouring in.
Headsup: slight rerun of a Paste Magazine puzzle here (removed a few of the indie rock clues), but seeing as the overlap of the two is negligible, it'll be new for virtually everybody. Share the puzzle. New one on Monday.
