Leaving campus today, I walked by a car with a Colorado license plate that read “GOTADNC.” I thought to myself: someone is advertising that she had an abortion (D & C)? That’s pretty bold! Or maybe the car belongs to a gynecologist, even though that doesn’t really make sense? (As in: “I just gotta do me some D & Cs!) Or maybe it belongs to a local Dem pol who’s on her way to the Democratic National Convention? (Get it? GO TA DNC? You betcha!)
So I e-mailed a colleague about this, and she pointed out that it probably means “gotta dance.” This seems a lot less interesting, but a lot more plausible, than anything I could come up with. (Can you guess that I’m pretty crappy at crosswords and other puzzles?)
And it all made me laugh, because remember the “ASSMAN” episode on Seinfeld from the last century? And I need some laughs, so do your worst in the comments.
