The Genetically-Modified Nose Panel Is Wearing Luon Yoga Pants That Belong To Whom?

 

On today's Nose, we'll move briskly through the following topics: 
 
An experiment in Dubai which caused, as I understand it, a chicken to give birth to a duck;
the $60 million recall of Lululemon yoga pants; the announcement that Jimmy Fallon will take over the Tonight show and move it back to New York; an article in Slate magazine arguing that email etiquette should be adjusted to accommodate the removal of all salutations and sign-offs; and an article in the Atlantic reporting that the accusative pronoun "whom" is on the way out, also a casualty of digital communication.
 
As always, our panel welcomes phone calls on all these topics, but one to whom these topics are important should call in before we switch subjects. 
 
Warmest regards, 
Colin McEnroe

EMAIL FROM BOB:

How about: "Eat fecal material and die!" when you are not happy about your reply or response to something?

EMAIL FROM MEGAN:

re: "for whom"
"It's a doggy dog world." (According to my students.)

EMAIL FROM TIMMY:

When I was working in corporate world, people would always use corporate speak in emails and it drove me batty! So I started ending all of my emails with "please advise".

Sent from a pay phone.
