"So," I ask Scaryduckling, tearing her away from a Facebook conversation on her iPod Touch in a manner that has her rolling her eyes in exasperation, "what do you reckon David Bowie's favourite sweets are?"
She doesn't know.
"I don't know."
She pities the fool that came up with that gag.
The fool, however, is perplexed, knowing that it is just one of several possible answers,
"How about Life on Mars Bars?" I venture.
- KitKat People
- Ziggy Starburst
- Cadbury's "Heroes"
She looks at me. She considers her response. She speaks. And the conversation ends.
"Perhaps he just doesn't like ch-ch-changes in his diet?"
I think that's what these young people call "Pwn3d".
