OH MIGHTY CECIL ADAMS! Celestial Font Of Wisdom, and part-time yo-yo demonstrator! Hail to thee.
I have a question which surely cannot be solved by the [del]schmucks[/del] faithful followers of Yours that hang out on the SDMB.
You know, the tiny little ones, used to spear cherries & olives in mixed drinks.
Where the heck do they come from?
When were they first made?
Was there a time that olives had to be slain in battle, before a Martini could be mixed?
And, what about Naomi?
