Style Invitational

The Garden of Eden (yesterday's post) was one of my go-to columns to read in Saturdays' Washington Post.  However, on Sundays I liked to check out their Style Invitational column.  

S.I. was a word play contest that asked readers to submit humorous entries for a particular topic.  If you are unfamiliar with how it went, the following will provide a good overview:

The Beatles Lennon and McCartney were always wordsmiths with their lyrics that were clever and funny.  Hello Goodbye is a good example.  Stay to the video's end when the "Heyla, helloha" refrain brings on the dancing girls in hula skirts.  Get it? (Aloha means both Hello and Goodbye.)
