Cheese Snob Wendy

Is it just my imagination, or have the Old Codger's ears gotten less pointy since 1943? Did they grow out, or did he have them snipped, like they do to certain breeds of dogs?


there's no way this guy's real! people like this don't exist anymore!

Wendy: You're astute for noticing. Codger's "earpeaks" were blunted by sonic abrasion caused by prolonged exposure to worn styluses burrowing through shellac.

Caroline: I passed along your understandable skepticism to the Codge. He admits it's hard to believe how ancient he really is. In fact, the AARP considers him beyond his sell-by date. His social security number's only three digits. Most of his friends are nimble youngsters in the 85 to 105 age group. But Codge insists he can cut a rug better than all those hepcats — even with a bum gam!


I can't even begin to tell you how much brighter my life is since they started podcasting Courtney's back pages. Just knowing that three hours of my working life (in an office with no web access and too close to the ESB even to begin trying to pick up the air signal) will be spent in the OC's company makes work seem a more attractive fate. (I should probably tell him all this myself, but I know he doesn't hold with email and I can't remember his phone number. Was it 7? 4? Dang!)

I have noticed something in particular while in these Ipod-fed reveries. Courtney frequently starts sentences with the phrase "You've probably never even heard of . . ." The thing is, the name that follows this phrase is almost always someone that, in fact, I have heard of. I am almost infuriatingly smug about this.

My life has become so much brighter since discovered the Old Codger. Why, the man is a breath of fresh air! Long Live the Codger!!
