Finger Lickin’ Good

May 10, 2011

George Murphy,a song-and-dance man from musicals such as Broadway Melody was also known for his sweet tooth. A short time after joining the Senate, he started keeping X in his Y.  Since more Senators now passed his Y on a daily basis, he started offering X to his colleagues. Senators that were invited to partake started calling it the “XY”. Then, in 1968, he moved and ended up at the spot where the XY is now known to be.Those entrusted with the XY include John McCain, Slade Gorton, Bob Bennett, and Rick Santorum. The XY is located next to the eastern door to the senate chamber. It is on the Republican side, and is located in the last row . Traditionally, the XY is always used by a Republican senator.

No real funda here. Just interesting trivia. So, XY?
