Sunday Funnies/Holy Crap, Baby

RIM co-founder Jim Balsille continues to go after the Phoenix NHL franchise like a pit bull gnawing on the postman's leg. A couple of editorial cartoonists rewarded him for his efforts in their cartoons last week.

Guitar inventor and multi-track innovator Les Paul passed away late last week at the age of 94. Several editorial cartoonists took time to mark the occasion.

But my favourite cartoon appeard too late to be included in last week's collection. The subject was the story about Twitter getting hacked and the subsequent DOS and it had my wife in stitches because art, it seems, imitates life...

Hey, ettarose is giving me crap! Yep, I've now won her Craption turd thingy a second time! Cool. And, your not gonna believe this. I know I couldn't. I've also won the Humor Bloggers Dot Com Guess The Baby Blogger Contest, also run by ettarose last week. Man she's one busy lady. Boy my right sidebar's getting a bit crowded over there! Thanks for these awesome awards, etta. Go to ettarose's excellent site to see both these stories.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
