Sunday Funnies

The old year closed on a questionable note which brought air travel into chaos.  A Nigerian-born terrorist with a bomb in his underwear failed to blow up a Dutch departing North West Airlines plane bound for Detroit.  The incident raised questions about how the man ever passed through security and some called for stricter measures to scan passengers.  Editorial cartoonists heeded the call.

Underwear bombers: making it difficult to enjoy the virgins that await. BATFU: Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Underwear. How quaint...
I heard these two remarks on the radio last week. Perfect!

Don: Ha, ha, yeah kinda hard to enjoy those virgins when you've blown your naughty bits to smithereens.

Things do seem to be getting a bit out of hand... I think I'll just take the train.

CatLady: I think you're on the right track.

Well, if nothing else, this is one way for me to get to the front of the line - by taking off my clothes, everyone would run and go the other way.

Me-Me: I don't know why but I can't get rid of this thought. You know how they ask if you packed your bag yourself? Well now they might be asking if you dressed yourself this morning. I'd be insulted.

That first pic was really disgusting. First the white man's butt had a pimple or something on his left butt cheek, but then it actually got worse when I realized that was black man boob, I was staring at.


Oh and for the record it would have have equally disgusting if it had been white man boob too.

I'm an equal opportunity man boob hater!

Quirks: I think the guy sat on a cookie. And I think the other guy's just got a nice tan.

You're hornery? Just from those pictures?

I loved the cartoons! I'm glad my frequent days of air travel are behind me now. Nowadays, I'll actually drive to a McD's, instead of booking a flight!

Skip: I know the last thing I'd wanna have to do is have someone check to see if I have a Big Mac in my pants.

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.
