Odd Language #135: The Beginning of the End?

http://www.breakingcatnews.com/comic/bcn-new-year-countdown has a comment from me, “Georgia, you do not actually say when the stopping starts.”

The issue: As I wrote it, I twigged on “stopping” and “starts” being opposites adjacent. Cue the jokes about clicking on “Start” in Windows to shut down the system.

(“Breaking Cat News” is a great comic strip. Three cats report on news occurring in or close to the house. Great art, great capturing of cat behaviour, and great jokes.)
