Get a nipper mug for your Facebook friend Zora.
An over exuberant fan of Nation Public Radio, its broadcasts, podcasts, and webpages. Known to schedule Saturday outing around the morning line up of Car Talk and Wait Wait Don't Tell Me? This person finds humor in jingles about ketchup and powdered milk and waits all week to hear what is going on in Lake Wopegon, Minnesota. They have been seen in sitting in the car twenty minutes after arrival to catch the last bit of This American Life. This person is not necessarily a member of their local affiliate, but feels guilty for not contributing more, despite being annoyed with the pledge drive.
