Not only is October National Sarcasm Month, it is also National Popcorn Month. The best month ever! Iowa's own Schaller is the Popcorn Capital of the World, home to Jolly Time. We Americans eat about 52 quarts of popped popcorn per year. I am more than holding up my end on this, so somebody out there is seriously slacking. Sarcasm! OK, this to me is sarcasm: someone hands you a ratty-chewed up book and you say, "Oh, thank you. I've always wanted a book that looks truly used to add to my collection of pristine first-editions". It's saying something that sounds nice but is not meant to be. "Spock, if only I had that green blood of yours these pesky emotions like love and happiness wouldn't be such a bother." McCoy didn't say that, but it totally sounds like him. Last day to eat popcorn and say the opposite of what you mean. October, you are just too short.
