For the Sake of the Fish

Delta SmeltI love NPR. They always have reports about weird little issues that you would never hear about anywhere else.

I was listening to the radio today and they had a long, straight-faced report about the plight of the delta smelt. They probably didn't care all that much about the issue itself (although it was interesting). Mostly, it seemed they just wanted to see how many times they could say "delta smelt" in a single report and still be taken seriously (I think it must have been about 30).

In the end, though, I was disappointed that they finished up with out any "you smelta, you delta" jokes.

Merry Christmas!

I hope this is what you asked Santa for.
