Flipping through the AM stations, Paul Kaufman heard this gem. It is a nice mashup of “tip of the iceberg” (small portion of something much larger and complex that cannot yet be seen or understood) and “icing on the cake” (an extra enhancement). In this age of a heating planet, we could stand to have some more icing on our icebergs. Thanks to Paul Kaufman for hearing this one and sharing it!
