Sunday Funnies

I hope everyone had a good Halloween and I hope you enjoyed our boo-fest over at Humor Bloggers Dot Com.

Hysteria broke out this week, at least in Canada, as the swine flu...oops, sorry... H1N1 flu vaccine began to roll out. The media whipped the nation into a frenzy with daily reports of clinics where people waited over 4 hours; shortages of the vaccine; and contradictory instructions of what constituted "at risk" and just who should be vaccinated first. It was funny when they changed the name of swine flu to H1N1 because people were referring to it as hinie flu. Now it may as well be called whiny flu!

thinkinfyou: You've got to laugh. If you believed the hysteria the media's whipped up you'd be a basket case.

Say hello to the fear blitz of 2009.

All this flu spew from the media is giving me nightmares. Last night I dreamed that the WHO was under my bed. (And no, not the 60's rock band. That would've been okay.)
nonamedufus said…
Leeuna: They couldn't have been under your bed. Everyone knows WHO's on first!

Oh well, in this country the vaccine will eventually make it's rounds. I took it in '76 and their was concern about some neurological side effects. I had no problems, and now I'm hearing that I may still retain some of the antibodies from it. Cool. I'm part pig!

Oh, one more thing. Yeah, I came out okay with the candy sales. I bought $27 worth for slightly over 16 bucks. Yea me!
nonamedufus said…
Don: I always had my suspicions.
nonamedufus said…
Don: And did you give it out or eat it yourself. I ask because of what you said in the previous comment.

Amy: Glad you enjoyed them.

MA Fat Woman: You'll have to line up to do it!
nonamedufus said…
Sorcerer: You can always tell how big a story is by the editorial cartoons about it. This one's off the richter scale.

I'm a little scared of it myself.

Chystal: Oh, It's a scary issue to be sure. Both the disease and the cock-up of a government response resulting in shortages and long line-ups.

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…

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"
