Quote of the Day (Dave Barry, on Why Early Pioneers Were Manly)

“I’ll tell you who was manly: the early American pioneers. Those guys didn’t even know they had cores. They set out into the wilderness with nothing but a musket and a sack of hardtack and hominy, and they had to survive out there for months, even years, completely on their own, sleeping on the ground in bear-infested forests. That’s why they brought the hardtack: to throw at the bears. They had no idea why they brought hominy. Like you, they had no idea what ‘hominy’ meant. It sounds like some kind of disease.” —Dave Barry, You Can Date Boys When You’re Forty: Dave Barry on Parenting and Other Topics He Knows Very Little About (2014)
