The Osmond reformation

We can't be certain there was an ancient scripture warning us about the events that would flow from the reuniting of the Osmonds, but we can't help noticing since they got back together on stage, it's gotten awful windy outside.

"It's just a reminder that we're all one big happy family," Merrill Osmond said.

"We make a great shepherd's pie," added Jimmy, "with a pretty garnish named Marie".

Surely adding a woman as a garnish to a pie is more Sweeny Todd than Little Jimmy? And if we were Marie, we'd object to the suggestion that our contribution to the group was little more than an eye-pleasing dusting.

Mind you, it's still very self-aware of Jimmy to compare himself and his brothers to a shepherd pie - a dish made to try and give some flavour to leftovers, padded out with a lot of starchy potatoes.
