Leather Tuscadero

I have this thing about funny words. Sometimes a random word or phrase pops into my head and I repeat it throughout the day, kind of like Elf saying "Francisco...." I always thought Leather Tuscadero from Grease had a great ring to it. I was kind of talking about this with my son the other day because he has to chose a song for his English class to analyze. I won't tell you what he thought would be a funny one, but it's by ACDC. Not appropriate. I was thinking more of songs that have a meaning to them, so I came up with The Flight of Icarus, by Iron Maiden. He thought that was funny. He kept saying "Flight of Icarus...." like Will Ferrell. Other things I find interesting or fun to say are: liaison, module,Tom Bombadil, quixotic, Uruk Hai, sagacious, Hedwig, rubric, oh there are hundreds more I'm sure of that I can't think of right now. Maybe I'll add them in the comments as I think of them and I'll actually have a lot of comments on a post and I'll feel all special! What words do you like to say?
Speaking of special....I have been nominated for a couple of awards recently. I don't mean to take my ball and go home, but I've decided not to participate in awards. But, consider you, my reader, nominated. If you would like to participate, bop on over and get the button from one of these two lovely ladies!

I debated not doing the award thing myself. It felt kind of chain-letter-ish. Didn't want to offend anyone and wasn't smart enough to get out of it gracefully like you did. d'oh

I like to say NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski's name. His brother is racing this year to, so that will be two Keselowskis.
