Outbursts of one form or another have become an easy mode to acquire fifteen minutes of fame.

Looking for something to contribute to today's Word of the Day, the only thing I found that definitively applies is Outburst Queer Arts Festival of Belfast that has been celebrating in your face queer art since 2007.

Once upon a time, I was half asleep listening to an American History lecture, and the prof was talking about Upton Sinclair's The Jungle. The book was about pre-union practices of industry and immigrant workers, in meat canning and packing. As I was half-asleep, I misunderstood what he was saying and thought the immigrants were becoming potted meat product.

In disgust and in an outburst of idiocy, I said, "Oh my God. So that's what's in Deviled Ham."

Does this predate Soylent Green?
