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.
Knucklehead said…
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 - 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.
