Today is the 10th anniversary of None Pizza With Left Beef, originally posted on October 19, 2007. How fortunate we are to witness this important moment in history.

In French there is an expression that means “to jump from one subject to another”: « sauter du coq à l’âne »

Literally, it means “to jump from the rooster to the donkey.” Or, more directly, “from the cock to the ass.” Yes, this amuses my inner twelve-year-old.

(Bonus fact: Originally, the expression meant “from the rooster to the duck,” using the now-archaic word for duck, « asne ».)
