Pants on the Ground - that's the catchiest little ditty I've heard in quite some time. Bless his heart. I sure hope someone pays him his royalties.

I'm with MeMe. I hope that guy gets his for that ditty.

It's all over the place!

Funny cartoons. I had to click on the second one to read the writing, my eyes are getting worse!

Yes, welcome to the real ugly world President Obama.

But ya know? ALL presidents go through this. All of 'em.

CL: Yep, It was kinda short.

Me-Me: Yeah, you said it. Everybody else seems to be benefitting from that stupid song except the poor guy that got booted off A.I.!

Quirks: But it's funny how quickly both the voters and the media turn. This guy was gonna be the greatest thing since sliced bread and now he's treated like stale day-old bread.
First, hey, I get this humor! Americans!!!! ;)

Second, the greatest thing since sliced bread is Joey Logano (see my most recent post: yes, shameless plug). :)

UR: Ha ha...finally something you can understand! ;)

NASCAR? Let's get football over and done with first.

The dems claimed that the losses in N.J. and Virginia to the republicans were *not* reflective of Obama's handling of the economy. Wonder if the loss of Teddy Kennedy's old post to a Republican will loosen their tongues to the point they will at least admit it hurts? Ouch!

Don: To an outsider such as myself that was a big surprise. But, hey, the people have spoken!

I cannot get that damn song out of my head. Love the cartoons. Gotta laugh or you'd cry, right?

Jayne: Pants on the ground, pants on the ground, Mr. Obama got his pants on the ground

Would some would say Obama competed in American idle?

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.
