Getting Shit Mixed Up...

For some reason, I'm always thinking Timbuktu is in Asia. It's not. It's in Mali in Africa. I think I get it mixed up with Kathmandu, which IS in Asia. They both end with an "oo" sound and have three syllables.

This happens almost daily.

I know what you mean. I thought Kalamazoo was in Asia for the longest time. Maybe it should be.

Just remember, Chris: Hope and Crosby went to Timbuktu; Bob Segar was going to Kathmandu…

By the way, getkristilove totally stole my joke!

On my first quick read, I thought you wrote "it's a Mall in Africa."

Fortunately your shit was not that mixed up.

This is Phil. I can only post as anonymous.

Tibmuktu is African?!? I thought it was fictional...

This reminds me of the joke about Who Flung Poo, but I digress.

Come to think of it, *I* thought Timmy-buck-two was in Asia as well-- somewhere south of Russia, perhaps, in the West.

Learn something new every days, don'tcha??

(MEANWHILE, bucko, you can try to distract us as much as you like, but SOME of us know your secret! muah ha ha ha ha!!)

This happens almost daily? Why are you thinking about Timbuktu daily?

Why, I haven't thought about it in approximately, oh, I don't know, three years? ...

You do know that it's Istanbul, not Constantinople?

Chris said...

Kristi- It definitely should be.

Frank- Thanks for the helpful memory aid.

Geoff- Wasn't it DiIulio who thought that Florence was a store like Arcadia?

B.O.- That is one evil sounding laugh, dude.

Zed- I'm thinking on all sorts of different planes.

Lulu- Yeah. Hell, even old New York was once New Amsterdam...
