Monday Miscellany--Cult TV Edition

Check it out, in what was ostensibly a straight-news story, the Times throws in an inside joke from Monty Python:
"Debates have raged between those who love all God’s creatures and those who say the only good crow is a crow that has ceased to be." ("For This Menace, Only One Thing to Do: Ready, Aim, Fireworks!")
And if you don't get the reference, then this blog is really not a good fit for you.

In an old episode of "The Simpsons," Krusty the Klown's fast food chain, Krustyburger, introduces a new sandwich, the Ribwich.
The Ribwich instantly gains a fanatical following, with legions of enthusiasts traveling across the country, following the sandwich from state to state.  Finally, the caravan winds up in San Francisco, where Krusty addresses the crowd, thanks them for their support ("What a long, strange product rollout this has been!"), and then announces that Krustyburger will no longer sell the Ribwich, because the animal it was made out of has become extinct.

"The cow?!?" someone asks.

"Uh, think. . .smaller," Krusty replies.

"The pig?!?"

"Think. . .more legs."

All of which is by way of explaining why I will never--NEVER--eat a McRib.
