I Think I Love Craig Ferguson

At this point, mainly because he had Peter Sagal on his show, and during this appearance, Mr. Sagal said this:

"If you have small children, as you know, they tend to destroy everything. Basically, children are agents of entropy. And they continue acting and moving and breaking things until every object in your house is reduced to its maximum number of component parts, and then they are distributed evenly around the home. And that is maximum entropy. It's the second law of thermodynamics as applied to the household."

This nine minute clip gave me:

-personal reference to plight of surviving toddlerhood;
-references to English Literature and being an English major;
-reminder of one of my favorite authors, Jasper Fforde, who also uses entropy in his fiction;
-current events;
-naughty subtext; and,
-Peter Sagal.


Plus, we get to go see a taping of "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me" in June, right here in merry old Minnesota!
