1phish2phish wants me to talk about

1 algonquin round table
That being in the middle of the Algonquin Hotel Restaurant where George Kaufmann, Alexander Woolcott, Dorothy Parker, Harpo Marx and others would meet for lunch through much of the 20s.

This is the little rock of sanity in the sea of shit that is Ames Iowa. One of the few places that is not a sports bar, and that doesn't have drunken frat boys and sorority girls throwing up in the bushes outside. It also has the open mike that I go to pretty much every sunday (when I am in town).
3 emperor joshua norton
The one and only Emperor of the United States Of America. He got an entire city to share in his delightful madness. A policeman was once reprimanded by a judge because he arrested The Emp as a vagrant.

7 the queer old dean
One of the wonderful jumbles of the Reverend Spooner. He was speaking of Victoria.
