Slip of the day

Terry Conner, former Tahoma Audubon Society president, brought down the house at the group’s annual breakfast this morning with a slip of the tongue.

Extolling the virtues of birds, Conner noted that arctic terns “circumcise the globe.”

After the laughter settled, the group presented awards to:

State Rep. Pat Lantz, D-Gig Harbor, for work on geoduck legisation.

Tacoma City Councilman Tom Stenger for work on the Green Tacoma Partnership.

The Woodbrook Hunt Club for protecting Fort Lewis prairies by opposing the Cross Base Highway.

Sara Siemens-Luthy for promoting nature education in schools.
