From The Simpsons

Ah yes, it's a post about The Simpsons. Last night I was watching the episode where Homer gets talked into climbing Springfield's tallest mountain, the Murderhorn. Anyway, he's near the top, a storm comes up, and he's forced into a cave where he discovers the frozen-solid body of a previous climber. Homer picks up the climber's journal. On the cover, we read, 'Journal of C. W. McAllister.'

Ah, isn't that great?!

Oh wait...you're wondering why it's so great...

Well, the initials of the long-frozen climber are 'CWM.' The word cwm is a mountaineering term that describes a steep-walled semicircular basin in a mountain; may contain a lake.
