03/07/2007: One Last Clam

Ooh. I saw another example of a rehabilitated clam last night! Recall that a "clam" is an old familiar joke. I posted recently about the process of using clams as the basis for newer, fresher jokes. Well, they did one on The Daily Show last night.

Correspondent Rob Riggle: "What part of 'no doubt' didn't you understand? Was it the silent 'b'? Because that's kind of tricky, actually."

The "what part of" clam is one of the clammiest clams in the sea, so I give 'em lots of credit for trying to do something new with it. I'm not sure it really works -- jokes about orthography are really tough sells under the best conditions -- but I love that they gave it a try.

Lunch: Universal Studios cafeteria salad bar.
