    There's a story on the Newsweek site which says a U.S. Senate candidate is hoping to eek out a victory.

    By turning big box of mice loose at every polling place, I suppose.

    The word is "eke," which is pretty lame even when spelled correctly.

    It's one of those words that people use to try to sound clever. Like schneid.

    If I were a Newsweek editor, I'd put the kybosh on words like that.

    Jerry: (answering machine) leave a message and I¹ll call you back, thanks.

    JOE DIVOLA: Jerry, Joe Divola. *Pbt* *Pbt* *Pbt* I have a hair on my
    tongue, I can't get it off, you know how much I hate that? Course you do,
    you put it there. I know what you said about me Seinfeld. I know you
    badmouthed me to the execs at NBC, put the kibosh on my deal. Now I¹m gonna
    put the kibosh on you. You know I¹ve kiboshed before, and I will kibosh
    again.

    I would think a mouse could eek out a victory.
     
  8. I have no idea why, but this made me laugh very hard.

    If you're a dude at the urinal, you often have to do some eeking when you finish leaking.

    No major publication has more errors than Newsweek.
