What Follows Limnology in the Dictionary? Limo!

You know when I lay awake at nights counting sheep or the hairs on my nose I think of all kinds of things. Like at what point does partly cloudy become partly sunny? Or why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?

Last night I got to thinking and pulled out the dictionary, opened it to a random page, closed my eyes and stabbed with my finger, landing upon the word "limnology". What? I can't write about that! Besides the theme for this week's Theme Thursday is "limo".

Limo it is.

You know, those fancy cars? Limousines? I know I'll never afford to buy one, let alone rent one for a special occasion. They're meant for celebrities pulling up at awards shows. You know when they're not driving their hybrid Hummers.

But there are some less traditional limos out there and you just know I'm gonna highlight them for you...

I might be able to afford a French cow...



Or maybe a German fruit drink...


I perhaps could afford this limo from a red-neck neighbourhood...

Or this limo from an Afghan neighbourhood...

I'm really hot to trot for this Amish limo...

Think I'm pullin' yer leg (yuk, yuk)? Well, just to prove there's no photoshoppin' going on here's another pic...with the Amish passengers and Amish chauffeur included.

Cool, huh?

Of course the most famous limo chauffeur of all was Robert De Niro in the movie Taxi Driver. Here's a little Sesame Street homage...











And finally, here's some limo humour (like this post wasn't?). Did you hear the one about...
The limousine was taking the beautiful raven-haired model to the airport. Halfway there, the front tire went flat. The model said, "Driver, I don't have time to wait for road service. Can you change it yourself? " The driver said, "Sure. " He got out of the car and proceeded to change the tire, but couldn't get the wheel cover off. The model saw him struggling and asked, "Do you want a screwdriver? " He said "Sure! But, first I have to change this tire. "
Be sure and visit Theme Thursday for more limos.

MikeWJ: You might be a redneck if you think the last words to
The Star Spangled Banner are
"Gentlemen, start your engines."

I'm sorry. Every time I come here I get sidetracked looking at the caption "kick ass" award from Chica. Now what were you talking about?
willow said…
FUN-eeee! Thanks for the TT giggles.
Wings said…
Cool pics & a cool post! :)

Willow: Thank you and you're welcome.

Wings: I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Haha . .much fun. A couple of TT's have your pics but nobody's posted a joke yet! I was similarly surfing and kept kicking up a comedy act called Limo . .buggered if I knew where they were from, I couldn't understand a word they said!
Kris said…
Bert really IS evil!
nonamedufus said…
Baino: Yeah I had the pics and the De Niro take-off but I needed one more thing. That joke seemed to cap things off.

Kris & Megan: Wasn't that great. He needs to wash his mouth out with soap!
mark said…
I'm just looking for limousine hire but i reckon the horse would definitely have room for me and my bride to be! and maybe the bridesmaids too!
Dot-Com said…
Ha ha, the limo horse is excellent!
nonamedufus said…
mark: Sure, but don't ask me where you can rent one!

dot-com: Yeah it would make for a handsome cab (get it? handsome cab, hansom cab=limo, ok, ok, ok)

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
