Not to be a word nerd, even...

But in writing that post I looked up Snagglepuss' phrase, having no idea where it could have come from... and it's "Heavens to Mergatroyd", coined by Mr. Cowardly Lion himself, Bert Lahr. And it apparently has its roots in Gilbert and Sullivan. It can't get a much more gay origin than musical theater, can it?

Here's a link to the pink cat's bizarre utterance:

Regardless the merga-whatsit, this Graph Jam is going to ruin my life with its hilarity. I was already out of spare time...

Yeah, I hear ya... Now you're in negative spare time. But at least you're laughing while your life is being ruined. That counts for something, right? Right?
