This is JonScribe's little treasure, and his comments. Being an election night and all, I thought ya'll could use a laugh:<p>In a food page story, no less, about National Talk Like (and eat like) at Pirate Day, is this little gem:<p>The cork or stopper in a barrel is the bung, and the hole it goes in is the bung hole. So when sitting down to eat with friends and the food is arriving at the table, call out, “Let’s see what crawled out of the bung hole.”
