When I heard the word "earworm" my first thought was, "She has a Yeerk?"

I was thinking of those squirmy things from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, actually. Cheesy

I've never heard the term "earworm" before this thread.  It's having a song stuck in your head, I'm gathering.  Canadian word/phrase?
I don't think it's that much more common a usage in Canada, but the number of (US) people in this thread indicating unfamiliarity with it made me wonder.  It seems it's an Anglicization of a German expression (other sources confirm the etymology, so I'm not just relying on Wiki here).

I know my (USian) BF is familiar with it; it's come up in convo and I didn't have to explain it - but it may be more region-specific in the US than it is up here (Canadian linguistic regionality is generally more subtle and less distinct).

Nope, the lottery is generally a tax on people who are bad at math, or so my father says.

My dad calls it "the idiot tax".  Usually while he's buying his weekly lottery ticket.  Wink

I buy a lottery ticket now and then, for S&Gs.  You can't have a proper lottery fantasy without one.

'If I Had a Million Dollars' is a Barenaked Ladies song from a few years ago.

Fifteen years, actually (practically an "oldie" now).  We played it at our wedding.  Wink

You do not want to know of the mental image that came from combining mac and cheese with the name of the band mentioned earlier in this thread.

I suppose I shouldn't add the Dijon ketchup to the mix...

LOL  I think it's time to quote the actual bit in question.  There's this in the actual song:
If I had a million dollars
We wouldn't have to walk to the store
If I had a million dollars
We'd take a limousine 'cause it costs more
If I had a million dollars
We wouldn't have to eat Kraft dinner

The Kraft dinner being the mac and cheese, I think.  Then there's a bit of chatter following it:
But we would eat Kraft dinner?
Of course we would, we'd just eat more
And buy really expensive ketchups with it
That's right, all the fanciest
Ket-- Dijon ketchup
Mmmm (mmmm)

Ah, that clears things up.  Thanks Smiley

Although the thought of ketchup and mac and cheese sounds a little gross.

But...but... That's what makes it edible to begin with!  It's one of the three foods ketchup was made for.  (the other two being hot dogs and grilled cheese sandwiches.  The only reason to use ketchup on anything else is to disguise the taste)

Yep.  They actually search people at the concerts to keep them from bringing macaroni into the concerts and throwing it on the stage during that part of the song.  I went to a big outdoor concert once and they had barrels outside the gates to collect the boxes.

Hot dogs, I understand, but the other two...<insert wincing emoticon here>

I'm not either.  My mother gave me ketchup in the bundle of groceries she bought over when I moved into my apartment.  Next Monday, it will be a year that the bottle has been sitting in the fridge unopened.
