Working at a university during the summer = spending hours on wikipedia
What's almost as good as "colorless green ideas sleep furiously?"
1. "The urchin sat on the roof and cried, as if rabbits were running along the tin-pipe towards the eternity, holding lycoperdons in their mouths."
2. "The exquisite corpse will drink the new wine"
3. "Quadruplicity drinks procrastination"
Or my favorite - in discussing the phrase "colorless green ideas sleep furiously" the wikipedia article explains that it is "the least controversially nonsensical." You read that right, "the least controversially nonsensical."
You know what? That makes me want to wander through a house of mirrors holding my lover's hand, enchanted by the universe.
