He's My Friend, And Some Crackers And Cups

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2008 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

You may be able to sing along:

Denver! The last dinosaur;
He's my friend, and a whole lot more!

Leonard always wonders what "more" entails. Participant in zany schemes? Does that fall under the friendship umbrella? Denver may also be a vehicle, or a teacher of paleontology. That's "more." What are your suspicions or conjectures? And do any of them overlap with the "More" in "Beverages & More"?

I forgot all about Denver! I loved that show.

Leonard's point, however, reminds me of the citation about "Etc." in Strunk and White which ends with:

"An item important enough to call for etc. is probably important enough to be named."<br/>

The phrase "my friend, and a whole lot more" has exactly one connotation for me.
