I’m feeling Cliff Claven-ish today…so…
It’s a little known fact that the whip was the first man-made device capable of breaking the sound barrier. True. Its tip travels faster than the speed of sound. That cracking sound you hear is also a sonic boom.
I thought about getting a whip – I believe that famous Ohioan Annie Oakley was a mean whip-snapper. What a cool thing to play with out on the back deck – would certainly get the neighbors attention. Oh I know there are other uses…let’s not go there kids.
What else can we do with a whip….Oh remember that wonderfully-talented (dripping sarcasm) musical group Devo with their flowerpot hats singing Whip It back around 1980 or so? That was talent. Then there’s EmmaLou, Golden Destroyer’s favorite….Whipped Cream in a Can. And Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones used a bull whip. mmm mmm
Some might say Devoted Spouse is whipped…but in a good way — coz he worked too hard yesterday.
I dunno…think that’s about all I can whip up today….sigh.
With my luck I’d crack the whip and the tip would come back and put out an eye. I know me…sigh…
