Each day at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa fledglings were busy learning about life.  Mom had told her to be sure and scrub behind her ears.  But lil’ Antigone  just couldn’t seem to reach.  In a whisper the Face of Everyman suggested that she duck her head under water three times while facing East.  For A and her Mom it was a win-win.


Young Portmanteau cleared his throat and began his recital at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Montetorkie school summer talent contest.  In a croaky, breathy voice he intoned:  “Well, it’s been a quiet week in Lake Woebegon where all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average.”  He was magnetic.  Many parents wept.  He was awarded the prestigious Montetorkie Doppleganger Trophy.
