A GIANT STEP FORWARD FOR METEOROLOGY

Pig Spleens

Key Quote:
"It looks like a normal year with no major storms," said the 84-year-old Smokov, peering at two of the brown, glistening, foot-long organs on his kitchen counter like a Gypsy gazing into a crystal ball. "That's what the spleens tell me."

(Thanks to sjhaller and DavCat and Jeff Meyerson, who notes that "Pig Spleens" would be a good name for a rock band)

Pig Spleen is actually a better name for a president.

First Lady Spleen.....hehehehe

It also makes a nutritous breakfast.

how many pigs do you have to go through before you find the forecast you're hoping for?

I had to quit reading at "brown, glistening, foot-long organs"...

"That's what the spleens tell me."

I think that's a key quote all by itself.

So that's the secret of the Farmer's Almanac.

One question though: Since when does a "normal" year contain "no major storms"?

I think Al Gore needs to consult with this guy...

The Spleen?

Key quote for me: "Forecasters are calling for a normal winter for North Dakota. That matches Smokov's gut feeling." *snork*

This new learning amazes me, Sir Bedevere. Explain again how sheep's bladders may be employed to prevent earthquakes.
