Overheard in a store in New Paltz, New York (yes, that New Paltz). A man with a chin beard, purple sweater and an Australian or lower-class English accent, ordering shellfish: “Spain is taking its troops home. We’re serving paella.” Two hundred Crusaders died–is he serving lamb couscous?

NB: He was driving an old Volvo station wagon, one of the ugliest vehicles on the road. Matched his chin beard.
