The New Yorker Has Trouble with Homophones

There were just so many comments we liked this week, it was difficult to come up with a handful.  Some of our favorites this week include reminiscing about your youth, dry wit, mocking the New Yorker, and a play on words.

WilltheDill ranted:

Those damned illiterates at the New Yorker.
I’ve always wanted to say that!

Flossy offered a poem on Koch's passing:

I once saw him
on the street

but we didn’t
really meet

I was still a kid
and didn’t make too much of it

But my parents said
there goes a man that’s great

Ryan took the sarcastic route, in response to a line that read, "and today, the city feels a bit more chilly," he said:

That’s because it’s cold outside.

When we asked Hagel or Hegel, AsFarAsImConcernedNelliesStillFantastic offered a third option:

Can I have some cream cheese? -Bagel
