Sunday Funnies

It was an interesting week, last week, in the funny papers. Political cartoonists were still taking a jab at Obama, his peace prize, and bombing the moon. The Canadian dollar gained ground on it's American counterpart last week achieving almost equal value. And while Canada may not got the Phoenix Coyotes, there was a rumour last week the NHL may well resurrect the Quebec Nordiques. Vive la difference! Oh, and Rush Limbaugh (great football name) was turned down in his efforts to own the St. Louis Rams. Just as well. No one saw him as a minority owner!

Some weeks they just make it too easy!

Cat Lady: Ha ha, no I haven't seen any yet! Balloon boy in particular is perfect fodder.

Hey, thanks for the shout-out! Oh, those "loonies" weren't about moi?

Harumph.

Fine. Be that way.

Hee hee hee.

My fave cartoon, the new helmut inspired by Rush.

That had me rolling!

Hysterical. I love the Rush cartoons, especially the helmet and goal post. Keep 'em comin'!

Quirks: Maybe not about you, but it's all in the family with your northern cousins.

Me-Me: Oh the Limbaugh cartoons were priceless.

Limbaugh probably donates more money annually to charities giving to disadvantaged people (of course) than any ten NFL players or owners combined. They don't know the meaning a "a racist". Whine, whine, whine.

My question is, whose idea was it to get Limbaugh involved with football in the first place? Having him do commentary as part of an NFL show was ridiculous, and this is what happens. He's a buffoon, and as such, let him stay with his own show, so his listeners all stay in one place.
nonamedufus said…
Don: Wow, that's a side to the guy I wasn't aware of.
nonamedufus said…
DK: I know. The outcry over this was amazing. And largely due to some of his comments about black players when he was a commentator.

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…
