MOSCOW -- Heard the latest knee-slapper making the rounds of Russian elementary schools?Question: What happened to Snickers when it came to Russia?Answer: It lost weight.To get the joke, you have to know the advertising slogan that has saturated the Russian airwaves: that Snickers is covered with "a fat, fat layer of chocolate."Quips about fat, fat layers of chocolate have started to turn up in would-be witty headlines and even in speeches in Parliament."Snickers is becoming a kind of a symbol," said Dmitri Ivliyev, consumer affairs reporter for the daily Izvestia.

While ambling through the Maryland State Fair on opening day Friday morning, Belinda Bonds thought she'd stop for a few Oreo cookies, but not just any Oreo cookies. These were dipped in batter and deep-fried, then — because that would hardly do, otherwise — coated in powdered sugar. "It's fair food," said Bonds, of Columbia. "Where else would you get this kind of disgustingness?" Indeed, the 129th Maryland State Fair, running through Sept. 6 at the Timonium Fair Grounds, offers a wide range of food options: funnel cakes, kettle corn, cotton candy, corn dogs, eggrolls, crab cakes, barbecue, even fresh produce at the farmers' market.

The last time Mount St. Joseph boys basketball coach Pat Clatchey had his whole team assembled, during practice Feb. 4, he made sure to set down some common-sense rules in anticipation of missing time because of the snow. He told his players to avoid pickup games, don't do anything crazy in the snow and stay away from Snickers bars. Snickers bars? "Yeah. I told them not to eat any Snickers - don't be satisfied because we still have unfinished business and they have to stay focused and they have to stay hungry," he said.

Candy is dandy -- until after Halloween. As you stare down the pile of fun-size candy bars rising in a mound from the kitchen table, you, a frugal cook, begin to wonder how to tackle the kids' trick-or-treat largesse. Our advice: Bake it. Nearly every commercial candy imaginable -- from Almond Joy to York Peppermint Patties -- has been cleverly reincarnated as a cake, cookie, cheesecake or brownie. Using candy as a baking ingredient isn't a new idea, of course. Where would kindergarten-room mothers be without the standard-issue M&M cookies?

I went to the grocery store to buy candy for Halloween, but nobody seemed to think I knew what I was doing. Not my family, not the cashier in the grocery store, not the pollsters.First, let's deal with the pollsters. As my fellow Kansan Bob Dole has been saying lately, a pox upon the pollsters! Bob and I have our reasons. Bob is not pleased that the pollsters are reporting many Americans feel he can't be trusted to run the country. I am not pleased that the pollsters are saying that dads can't be trusted to buy the Halloween candy.

If there was ever an ad campaign that perfectly exemplified the current state of TV advertising and the weird symbiosis of offender and offended, it's the Geico cavemen commercials. Have you seen them? The pitch is unconventional but the storyline very familiar: The car insurance company makes the claim that its Web site is so easy to use "a caveman could do it." Cut to a couple of hirsute Neanderthals who are incensed by the ad campaign. The gentlemanly cave-dwellers (part of the joke is that, aside from appearance, they are urbane types who go to fine restaurants and attend therapy regularly)

For years, Leonardo stood under a bush in Mary Kay Pogar's front yard, red cap at a jaunty angle, thick book tucked under an arm. Then, on a summer day in 2005, the gnome disappeared. After a stop at Pogar's lab at a Towson hospital, he jetted around on Air Force One, went ice fishing in Antarctica and trotted along the Great Wall of China -- at least, if all the photos posted in the lab lounge were to be believed. For Pogar, a pathologist's assistant at Greater Baltimore Medical Center, the images were a tip-off that a co-worker filched her gnome.

Close the book on "The City That Reads." Welcome to "The Greatest City in America." A year after being elected, Mayor Martin O'Malley has changed Baltimore's official slogan. The new tag replaces the phrase established 13 years ago by O'Malley's Rhodes Scholar predecessor, Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke, to replace William Donald Schaefer's "Baltimore Is Best." O'Malley has been quietly testing his new mantra, placing it on the city Web site and hanging a sign outside his office. But the mayor made the phrase - which he used to close his campaign speeches and inauguration address - official when workers stenciled it on a bus stop bench at St. Paul and Saratoga streets this week.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- A few weeks before coming here, Winston Cup rookie driver Jeff Fuller stood beside his vibrant blue-and-white race car. It was the car that was attracting the attention, not the driver. Not then, anyway. The car, the No. 27 Pontiac, had its sponsor's name sprawled across its hood. V-I-A-G-R-A. The jokes inevitably came. "Jeff, if you should happen to win a race, do you get out of your car in Victory Lane and say, `I owe it all to Viagra?' " Fuller didn't even crack a smile.

Bernie Houghton is the one racetrack denizen who gets all his information straight from the horse's mouth.He doesn't mind taking lip from the thoroughbreds who compete at the Maryland tracks; it's all in a day's work.As the identifier (or lip man, in track parlance), Houghton has a vital, yet thankless, task at Laurel Park and Pimlico -- making certain that the right horses are running in the right races. He is the last line of defense against cheating."Nobody really likes doing this," said the Towson resident and one-time steeplechase jockey, who led the nation's jump riders in victories in 1985.
