I admire his work with special education students, but he might want to rethink his major - not much money to be made in art.

I thought Kasey might have seen the LOTR movies - one of the "younger" hobbits (Pippin, I think), mentions that hobbits like to eat six meals a day, one of which is "elevenses" which occurs after "second breakfast" and before "lunch". I think Kasey was guilty of nerves and didn't focus on the right part of the question.

This guy was a little bit on the shy, awkward side. I was thrilled when I saw he was selected as a contestant and had hope for others who might appear to have the same characteristic. It made it sad for me when he llamaed.

llamad? llamaed? ! I made up a word.

I wonder if Andean ungulates who have difficulty nursing their young are urged to take Llamaze classes.

The APs are more tolerant of shy nerds when they're college students. And art is a close cousin to What Else.

No, I'm pretty sure we've used turned llama into a verb before.

I thought Lamaze (or Llamaze) classes were for expectant parents, to help them through labor and delivery.

You are absolutely correct. In my zeal to create a bad pun, I temporarily confused Lamaze with La Leche -- or Lla Lleche.

Obviously, 11:00 on the east coast is 4:00 pm in England, so he translated the expression into British time before he gave his answer.
