Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Maybe one day, I’ll no longer find humor in semi-drunken banter.

Not today, though:

Fellow Traveller: No light beer. I’m built like a shit brickhouse.
Me: I think you mean “brick shithouse” there, man.
FT: What’s the difference?
Me: (thoughtful pause) Um. Touché.

I have to give props to former Wall Street Journal foreign correspondent Pamela Druckerman for the title of her first book: “Lust in Translation”.

Regardless of the quality of her book’s content — an anecdotal overview of global attitudes toward infidelity — the play on the common phrase “lost in translation” brings a smile to my face. Don’t worry — it’s not a lewd one.

As always, I’m a pure sucker for pun-menship.
