#59: Lie (NOT Lay) Down Sally

DDD #59

On this episode:
Remember the Tan Mom? We do. Anyway, guess who uses more semicolons: literary types or us normals. If you’re about to get a dog, think long and hard about the name so your pup isn’t a basic bitch (literally). Listener Anna emailed because every day she says, “Lie on the table.” Is she a doctor, a masseuse, a butcher or a murder? We don’t know, but we explain the lie vs. lay situation. Lastly, if you’re in the bushes, you probably fell in drunkenly. If you’re among them, you’re at the Bush family ranch.
