Money Quote

It’s a good day for the worm.”

–Jodi Johnson-Maynard, a soil scientist at the University of Idaho, on the discovery of two living specimens of the fabled giant Palouse earthworm; thought to be extinct, it has a penchant for spitting and smells like lilies.

I’m sorry.  It wasn’t the quote itself, but the explanation beneath it that drew my attention.  Few things on God’s “green” earth have “a penchant for spitting and smells like lilies” other than the worm in question and that girl from West Virginia you met at the amusement park the summer after seventh grade.
