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.

The first one about Twitter IS good! I see why your wife had a laugh. I like the last one of Les P. and Jeez too. Who knows? Maybe Jesus is indeed a superstar?!

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.

Times Are So Tough...
