The Foot. It is in my mouth.

A while back I freaked out because of a person using the phrase, "A funny thing happened on the way to the 2008 elections." On tonight's Rachel Maddow she had a large graphic up on the screen that read, "A funny thing happened on the way to the quorum."

So... since I don't think Maddow was intending anything subversive by the use of that phrase I'm left with the conclusion that I was overreacting about instance that I linked to. Anyone have any thoughts?

    It's a reference to the play A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.

  2. Thanks for pointing that out, it clarifies a lot.
