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!

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

Harumph.

Fine. Be that way.

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.

Don: Wow, that's a side to the guy I wasn't aware of.

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 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…

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.
