Was just reminded of something the Snork Maiden’s friend Xavier said a few weeks ago in a drugstore. The kids were inspecting the candy rack, and the SM held up a Snickers bar with “NOUGATOCITY” printed on the wrapper: “What’s this word?” “Oh,” said Xavier with great authority, “that’s Spanish.”   (I didn’t feel I owed it to the Snickers people to explain that it was an ad campaign, not a bilingual label, so I just left it alone.)
