Turkey Baster

My apologies to the folks who didn’t get the earlier reference. As the long-running joke goes around here, whenever there’s good economic news, Paul Krugman kicks his cat (Hence the Krugman Cat Index) . Today’s news was so good, I was implying, that his cat would simply liquify from the impact of the kick and he would have to pick him up using a turkey baster.

I know people say most jokes aren’t funny if you have to explain them, but this may be an exception.
