Dick Summer Connection

Sacred excrement. I knew this was going to happen eventually. But it knocked me right out of my big, manly, comfortable black leather poppa chair in my living room just now anyway. This just in for today’s podcast…seriously: “A Vancouver Buildings Council has blocked the lease of a restaurant property to the fish-and-chips chain “Moby Dick” on the grounds that “Dick” is an offensive word. The restaurant chain says the name has “Literary significance” and does not refer to male genitalia.” Dick is not an offensive word.” No. Dick is my name. I am occasionally not offensive. Dick was also my dad’s name, it is my name, and the name of a couple of other reasonably un-offensive guys I know.
