Unpack Your Adjectives

James and I have long been amused by restaurants with creative adjectives in their names (like El Pollo Loco and El Pollo Feliz). So I was delighted when, on my way to a United Way meeting this morning, I saw a new one: Mr. Loco Catfish.

In addition to the "crazy" moniker, I also enjoy the courtesy title. . .while the catfish is typically considered a bottom-feeder, this is clearly a crazy fish that demands respect.
