Globe and Mail Project: #12, Business Grads Unharmed in Grape Avalanche

(click on image to view larger version)

Unsuspecting business school grads were caught

in an avalanche of giant grapes yesterday, while

touring a winery adjacent to a major nuclear facility.

While no one was injured in the incident, experts

agreed that many of the stains would never come out.

My Globe and Mail delivery resumed today, so here is my collage from today's newspaper. As for my musings on Monday, about whether or not there were still young newspaper carriers, this was in the Globe today:

It is curious that in a collage where you applaud the collected wisdom of the metriculating lads, and from a business school to boot(!), you see fit to also add a comment about the redundancy of another working stiff, albeit a youngster, but have you thought about the meaning of the juxtaposition of the two "bits" of things on this blog entry as a whole: collage and article? They are related, and not-related. I cannot fathom the larger meaning but I grok it exists. Thank you for this intellectual challenge. I won't need to do my sudoku today.

Once again, Caesar, I am indebted to you for your keen observations. Also, having never read Heinlein's STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND, i was not aquainted with the term "grok":Grok means to understand so thoroughly that the observer becomes a part of the observed—to merge, blend, intermarry, lose identity in group experience. It means almost everything that we mean by religion, philosophy, and science—and it means as little to us (because of our Earthly assumptions) as color means to a blind man.
Thank you, Caesar.
