Something on a Stick Day

March 28, 2009

Something’s on a stick;
But what exactly is it?
Is it edible?


It’s Something on a Stick Day.  I’m reminded of a couple of comic routines.  One is of a talking jalapeño pepper on a stick performed by Jeff Dunham that I think I saw once on David Letterman; the other is a somewhat off color song called “We Got a Stick For That” sung by David Kilgore that I used to hear on Dr. Demento.
