A Mind That Suits What doesn't kill me, makes me laugh... usually.

Monday, February 20, 2006 :::
It happened that a certain pudgy, balding English teacher assisted in the festivities surrounding the wedding of a young Indian lady, as in Subcontintental Indian. And it happened that the Americanized younger generation still has a fondness for mango juice, only with vodka added. He asked if there was a name for that combination. The young people, one and all, professed ignorance on that point, whereupon he named it the "Delhi Sunrise." The name was greeted with great enthusiasm by one and all, and so it has passed in to general use.

It is free for use by anybody, but no corporation may trademark it. As with the Screwdriver, the Cape Codder, and the Seabreeze, it is now a generic name, free to anybody.

Now,if that is not a life's accomplishment, what is?

Vodka and mango.

Vodka plus mango.

The Delhi Sunrise.

You heard it here first.
