Best Of: "Tit-For-Tat"

Class, your assignment today, is to open the premiere issue of Astonishing Adventures Magazine. Go to page twenty-one and read the fine pulp fiction story "Tit-For-Tat."

The first person to tell me what "colcannon" is without looking it up online, gets two gold stars.

Heh-heh-heh, no, it's not a Quinn-Martin production.

A cannon that shoots coal? Maybe, John Travolta?

Flan,

Is that a "Broken Arrow" reference? Actually "colcannon" would be this.

Paulie Decibels,

My comprehension of Cockney is nil, though I do love the expression "I've got to go see a man about a dog."

Paulie Decibels,

Uh, yeah. Between that and the 70's Brit quiz, I don't think I scored 100 pts. total.
