Friday fun with Ogden Nash

Someone at Reuters is having too much fun:

China threatens drama
if Obama
meets the Dalai Lama

Followed by

Obama
meets the Dalai Lama
despite China drama

I am reminded of the immortal words of Ogden Nash:

The one-L lama, he’s a priest
The two-L llama, he’s a beast
And I would bet a silk pajama
There isn’t any three-L lllama

To which my Bostonian friend Marty responds “that big fire was a right three-alahmah”.

  1. A friends of mine with small children, in response to tantrums and other fits of pique, will give them a withering stare and ask with all the sarcasm she can muster (which is quite a bit, actually) “Are we being attacked by the drama llamas again?”
