Pudding, Themeless and Magic

Winston Churchill once called a waiter to his table during dessert and said, "Pray sir, take away this pudding. It has no theme."

Lately political pundits and bloggers are saying that the McCain campaign has no central narrative, and that it's a themeless pudding.

It’s such a great phrase that could apply to so much (of my) writing.
Now keeping with the theme of pudding (but not themeless pudding), here’s a link to a short video about Norman Lindsay, author and illustrator of The Magic Pudding.

(There is a shell of a website called this pudding has no theme. What's that about?)
