Words in strange places.

Don't you love words in strange places?



(This is eyeshadow.)

(Don't you love 3-letter words that end in x?)

Nix on words of three letters ending in x. Except for lex.

Looks like you’ve ventured into Lower Manhattan.

Your picture of the circle which evokes for you some Freudian reaction, reminds me of something: take some pix (a three letter non-word ending in "x") of manhole covers (um personhole.) Really. History. Some have, etched in, the names of the "WPA", or “PWA” (I get them confused) two of FDR's alphabet soup agencies, which I think were part of the NRA & off you go into Con Law…. Lex.

Why do I think this is Longo eyeshadow?...is the translation really to mean having sex peacefully in daylight?

That'll show all those people who think Ann's a closet righty. She loves tax!

(I believe this is the first time I've seen her trademark "Don't you just love...." attached to something other than some popular entertainer I hate.)

I can think of a 3-letter word that ends in X:

"DinnerwithMortimer."

Sex takes the Pax out of Lux.

Why should I not expect to see words on eyeshadow containers? Am I just missing the point again?

Ann Althouse said...

Madison Man: It's not on the container. It's built into the substance of the eyeshadow. Plus, it's not the brand name. It's extraneous expression.
