A girl across the class upon being chastized for using her stir stick after she had placed it on the desk: 'You're such a germaphobe, just like Howie Mandela!'
Did she mean Howard Hughes, he of the Kleenex boxes and jars of urine?
Did she mean Howie Mandel, of Bobby's World fame? Did he have a predilection for Lysol, and I'm just not current on my washed-up-actors-turned-game-show-hosts' phobias?
Did Nelson Mandela have a brother that none of us knew about?
Is she just D-U-M, and I should go back to sailing my Facebook Pirate?
