Today's Foxtrot is funny.
I was reminded last night that 24 is one of Eoin Colfer's favorite shows. Colfer likes his action dramas. Afterall he did describe his Artemis Fowl books as "Die Hard with faries." In case you missed it there is an inside joke about 24 in Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception:
Holly walked rapidly into the cockpit and strapped herself into the pilot's chair, "Seven and a half hours to save the world. Isn't there some law that says we get at least twenty-four?"
Artemis strapped himself into the copilot's chair. "I don't think Opal bothers with laws," he said.
