A word of explanation: There is no explanation. In our misspent youth, we swear to you we had this entire list memorized and would quote from it nonstop to amuse ourselves and only ourselves. (We had few friends as children.) This came to us, and it's Friday, and it's hot outside, and all we have to entertain ourselves with is this and college athletes' strange predilection for the Lion King. We have forty ideas below. We're sure you can add to the list. Our terms are real, but yours don't have to be. Also, before somebody asks, taxonomy is not the same thing as taxidermy. Thank you.
