Riffing the Light Fantastic

I'd like to do something a little different. I'd like to take requests. Use the comments, and give me a couple of words (perhaps drawn randomly from /usr/share/dict/words or the equivalent) or a phrase. I'll try to come up with something for as many of the suggestions as possible. I won't promise anything deep or well-researched, but there's likely to be a fair amount of sarcasm. Posts will appear as I get around to them, which will depend on the quality of the suggestions and how entertaining I find the whole exercise.

And no, this is not a cheap ploy to figure out how many actual readers I have. I'm pretty sure that number is somewhere between two and five.

I just wanted to mention that the delay in posting this request has been for lack of time. I have some vague ideas, but haven't yet had the opportunity to set them down and flesh them out. As tomorrow will be spent at least in part house-hunting, to quote a famous seer, "Outlook not so good."
