Sunday Funnies

There was plenty for editorial cartoonists to make fun of last week... Who am I kidding? There was really only one story anybody was interested in last week. It was everywhere...


Me-Me King said…
Is it just me or are there others that really don't give a shit who kissed Tiger's balls for luck and made his putter stand up?
Don said…
It's not over yet either. I've heard some say that his wife would never divorce him? Are they nuts?! She would come out of any settlement with an absolute fortune! Plus, she'd get rid of the great infidel.

Me-Me: It's not just you. Sadly there are more not like you.
nonamedufus said…
Don: She may come away with more if she stays. Weird, eh? He'll pay her in order to protect his endorsements. Ain't love grand?
Quirkyloon said…
And don't you love it when the "media" asks the question? "Should the media leave Tiger Woods alone? Isn't this his private business?"

nonamedufus said…
Quirks: Geez, Entertainment Tonight would be out of business if they left him alone.
Christiejolu said…
LOL! Love the cartoons. Yeah I turned the channel when they started talking about it. Who the hell cares as Me-Me put it who kissed his balls...that was funny girl!
nonamedufus said…
Christiejolu: I don't understand how people can be so interested in every salacious detail. I'm tired of it and could care less. What's that? 5 mistresses? You're kidding!?
Mr. Knucklehead said…
At least we now know for sure that his putting is better than his driving.
nonamedufus said…
DK: Yeah, and he seems to like to play a lot of holes.

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 …

 Lust and Wonder - Aug…

I Do

It was noon. The sun shone brightly in the sky. Birds chirped merrily in the trees. The sounds of traffic drifted up from the street. George picked up his keys and headed for the apartment door. This was a special day. Perhaps the most special day of his life to date. Today was the day he would ask Georgina to marry him. Georgina was his girlfriend. French. From France.

He'd covered all the bases. He'd bought the ring, a bouquet of flowers and a set of knee pads. If she said "no" at least they'd have a good laugh over the knee pads. If she said yes they'd remember him down on his knees this day forever.

He grabbed everything, locked the apartment door and descended the stairs. The restaurant was nearby so he decided to walk. As he waited on the corner for the light to change he thought of spending the rest of his life with Georgina. Not that he was being presumptuous but he had a good sense she felt the same way too. He was sure it was kismet. And besides wi…
