Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for December 09, 2004
"A good nickname works on many levels. Take Mrs. Godfrey's latest nickname, "Venus De Silo."" "Venus was the goddess of love and beauty. Mrs. Godfry is nrither loving nor beautiful. So you've got the whole irony thing going on. Venus is also a planet, an obvious reference to Mrs. Godfrey's enormous size." "Venus De Silo. A silo contains feed for liovestock, a nod to Mrs. Godfrey's bovine quality." "As I said: Many levels." "It's impressive, in a disturbing kind of way."
