Whiskey Tango Foxtrot: “Oh” No, She Di’n’t!

You know, possums, sometimes strings of words form sentences, and sometimes those sentences are so beyond the pale in meaning, so utterly absurd, that it seems they must be ransom notes composed by Dadaist monkeys using back issues of Life & Style and the Pennysaver. To wit, take this example from People Magazine’s “Caught in the Act” section:

Sandra Oh, smiling big over the nude scene in Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical at Central Park’s Delacorte Theater. She sat next to Top Chef’s Spike Mendelsohn, who watched the hippies while eating an ice cream sandwich.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot indeed.
