Gentle Reader Alisa asks:
"Dog, why do you call the spice grinder a "weasel"? I love it, but I can't figure out the connection. Thanks."
That is a direct result of my slight-off-of-centre sense of humour.
In the cartoon series "Futurama", there was a minor character named Elzar -- a four-armed chef from Neptune who was followed about by several "spice weasels".
When Elzar wished to spice up a dish, he would grab one of these weasels, hold it over the dish and squeeze, causing the "spice weasel" to sneeze a cloud of spice onto the meal.
I found this to be intensely funny, and when I discovered the McCormick-Schilling disposable grinders, well, the connection was obvious; in my home the grinders have been "spice weasels" ever since.
Hope that helps,
