If you are like me, a confirmed cruciverbalist, you know the word “olio”. Because what crossword constructor has not been saved by that word, at least once? What solver has not written “olio” into four squares on a grid?
Many of you know the spanish word for pot — “olla”. Olio comes to us from that word for “pot”, the pot that you throw everything into.
The last few days have contributed an olio of images odd and interesting to thetompostpile files.

My friend Bob noticed that the packages are exactly the same, except for the color applied to the apples.
On the label are the words “six pack”.
Does that mean six apples, or six slices?
How many slices in an apple?
Good job, Motts!
Hey, Apple Slices!
There’s something next to you that’s even more insane than you are.
