"doesn't know if he was named for a knife or a race track"

Sorry, Alex: Bowie, Maryland, is not pronounced /ˈboʊ.i/ (BOH-ee) - like the singer, but rather /ˈbu:i:/ (BOO-ee), like the guy who died at the Alamo.

(The title? Somebody said that about baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn once, but I'm not finding the quote...)

Oooo, oooo: the mammalian nursery rhyme character suffering from allopecia is Fuzzy Wuzzy!!!

All I could think of was Humpty-Dumpty. Does an anthropomorphic egg count as a quasi-mammalian?

Is it still allopecia if you're not meant to have hair in the first place?

Children's rhymes and such: either you know it at once, or you never heard it before in your life!
