little tetrazzini wings

My favorite paragraph (so far) from today's Times:

"Mr. [Daniel] Radcliffe still lives in the house he grew up in, with his parents and two dogs, Blinka and Nugget. (Nugget is not, oddly enough, named after the lead horse in 'Equus.' Rather the Radcliffes have a tradition of giving dogs names that can follow the word 'chicken'; a previous dog was named Tikka.)"

[from a profile of actor Daniel Radcliffe, about to open in "Equus" on Broadway]

Blinka remains unexplained, you'll notice.

But googling "chicken blinka" does get some interesting results even if they're rather of the non sequitur school.
