    Pronouncing a word the wrong way is a sure sign that you learned it by reading it.

    Guilty more often than I would like to be.

    There was once a marketing person tasked with coming up with a super catchy catchphrase for a new hit breakfast cereal's character, who was a talking cartoon tiger. They showed up to the meeting with "They're great."
    Too funny, one of the most memorable catchphrase of all time.

    Why is it that pianos are the only musical instrument that ever get the distinction "upright"?
    Why is there no "Upright Bass", or "Upright Harp"? or even an "Upright Drum"?

    there’s an upright bass, the double bass is called that

    don't ask me how I know this, but the total number of squares of toilet tissue on a roll is divisible by 4.

    but can you spare a square?

    Sorry but there are no more squares to spare

    “Busy as a bee” is a metaphor for being unflaggingly industrious, but the job of every bee is literally to “Stop and smell the roses,” - a metaphor for taking a break from work.

    In a 500 day period, someone could have met someone, got married, gave birth to a child, got divorced, and still would have been using the same box of Q tips.

    I love how your mind works.

    Most of my posts in this thread are posts I like from other people from other sites. I don't like to take credit for something I don't think of.

    I like to post some of my favorites for others to enjoy. That and I also love random thoughts.

    there’s an upright bass, the double bass is called that

    Is it referred to as an "upright bass"? If so, I humbly stand corrected.

    Yes, double bass is also known as upright bass.

    The double bass is the largest and lowest-pitched bowed string instrument in the modern symphony orchestra. 2. The origin of the name of the double bass stems from the fact that its initial function was to double the bass line of large ensembles

    For example:

    Primus - Mr. Krinkle

    Superman has his suit underneath his Clark Kent reporters outfit. But no one ever thinks about where he keeps his cape or boots.
