Kalevala humor never goes out of date. (My friend Ben WINOLJ sent me this link. Heehee. Ben, for those of you keeping score with the home game, is the person who sent me a link to a news article about two Gila monsters eating their owner's corpse, with only the note, "Thought of you. Ben." He later claimed that he meant to make a joke about them wanting to grok him in fullness and knew that I would get the said joke rather than asking what "grok" meant, but apparently he was in a hurry, so what I got was that when he thinks of lizards feasting on human flesh, he considers me the go-to person in his address book. I have derived not inconsiderable amusement from this thought.)
