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.

"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?

Baino said…
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 - 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.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. 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 …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
