Lisa Major, Louisville KY

At worldcon an Australian fan passed out samples of a candy called Tim Tam. It brought to mind a horse of that name, who won the 1958 Derby and Preakness. At the top of the Belmont stretch he looked like a Triple Crown winner. Halfway down the stretch a fragile leg snapped. He finished the race on three legs and a heart, which wasn't enough to hold off the fast Cavan. Fortunately, the vets saved him, and he lived several years after his disastrous last race.

Lisa handed me the above comment at Denvention's Fan-Eds' panel – composed on the spot. That was a first, so it is our first.
