I was listening to NPR this morning on my way to UCSC. There was a segment on the Jose Padilla trial that is pending. At the end of that segment one hears the Padilla attorney saying, “People might not recognize the name Padilla, but if you say “dirty bomber” it rings a gong.”

Um … so when did we start ringing gongs? I’ve heard of bells before. But gongs?

Sorry. It just made me laugh. Maybe he’s thinking of The Gong Show. But they would strike the gong, not ring it … right?
