Pica the magpie

By the way, the word "pica" comes from the Latin word for magpie, a bird known for eating just about anything. And also for being attracted to glittery items for its nest.

I just thought that was a little more irony for the mental shleptichnach-ists out there.

You know.

The less erudite among us might have thought, "the what effect?? that's taste aversion". And that phenom when the same thing keeps coming up once you're aware of it?? For me it was a tintype that first illustrated this - but I would deem that a "plate of shrimp", as in Repo Man - lowbrow brilliant all the way http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4QKiYar9pI
