In 1876 a shower of three-inch chunks of meat rained down from a dear sky over Olympian Springs, Kentucky. The Louisville Commercial reported that "two gentlemen, who tasted the meat, express the opinion that it was either mutton or venison.
So, is that a typo or a clever pun?
(and who actually tastes meat that falls from the sky?)
Yes, that is a typo. It took me a minute to find the pun because, like my scanner, I read "dear" as "clear" (So I guess, technically, it's actually a "scanno"
My thoughts exactly--who would taste steak from a stranger's plate at restaurant, much less unidentified meat that fell out of the sky!?
