aw, jeez

August 8, 2018
"Aw, jeez, I think I knocked some broad up, back in the '80s!"
--Mary Worth's character Wilbur, as envisioned by The Comics Curmudgeon. For some reason this line is the automatic filler when either Melissa or I start a sentence "aw jeez". I think the charm is the way the phrase "knocked up" is idiosyncratically split, or maybe just the charm of the '80s.

Origin of some sports metaphors. Neat stuff!
