Fluffy Clouds Will Save The Western World

My latest column is out. It's a bit fruity, to be honest, but contains a line that made me giggle for five minutes when I thought of it. See if you can guess which one it is.

the bits about travelers were nice but just the name "starpotle casino" made me laugh

Aw, c'mon...I was amused by several lines, especially the "Frenchy children's literature" and the "wave to my casino as it floats past." And also by the fact that the link went to a TV station that's practically local for me! I'm a mere 40+ miles away from getting that channel, living as I do in the same town as the most famous corporate Gallo.

Eric -- That was the line that amused me most. It's not surprising that you liked it since it was inspired by a conversation you and I had last summer. When we were in Boundary Waters you looked out across the lake and said: "This place is OK, I guess, but it really needs a few condos over there."

Wow, I thought something VERY similar when I was in the Boundary Waters (as a teenager).

I kept expecting to see houses on the edges of the lakes...

Congrats on being the most famous Welsh-Speaking Chris Cope on the internet, by the way.

I, too, liked the starpotle line.
