juxtas

I always enjoy felicitous juxtapositions, known in the trade as juxtas (like a story about cars being washed away by flooding next to an advert for high-pressure hoses). And there's something about this entry in the Word help list that amuses: Resignation Due to Merger (Minimalist Theme). It could be a Brian Eno track...

My friend Bill Steele had for a long time a story about the folk club he played at where there'd been floods the previous week. And how without thinking he sang one of his songs with a line in it, "There's water, water everywhere, and none that's fit to drink."

Oops. Audience burst into howls...
