If You're Sick Of Straight Lines Try Angles

When someone says triangle, what's the first thing that comes to mind?  Is it this?


Or this...

Or how about this, maybe...



Or did you think of a love triangle?



I bet you wouldn't have thought of this...

Or this...


Now, I would have thought of this...


And here in Canada I might have thought of the logo for the Canadian Television Network...


And of course I would have thought of the unsung, lowly orchestra instrument...


And, of course, my favourite triangle solo...





Pop on over to Theme Thursday and see what other bloggers thought about "triangle".

With the strange layout of Rochester's roadways, I find myself going around in triangles instead of circles when lost.

Boom-Boom: Be careful of those sharpe left turns.

Heh heh - Ed Grimley! Loved his hair. Second City was a riot. Does CTV still use that logo?

00dozo: Martin Short invented the Grimley character while at Second City, but the video is from Saturday Night Live. CTV still has the same logo.

Triangles are interesting shapes. In my town there's a Triangle Grocery, Triangle Photos, Triangle Iron and Triangle Boots.
To this day I cannot see how these places came up with that name. There is nothing triangular about any of them, but like me, they like the lowly little triangle I suppose.

Don: Did you know I lost my parrot last week? Yeah. I've been thinking about my polygon ever since.

Triangles are just circles with stop points.

Triangles are for the slow moving set, whereas circles are for the fast movers.

I am definitely a triangle.

Quirks: Are you trying to run circles around my triangle?

Hey, Dufus, you did a great job with the triangle theme. Especially with the title. Try Angles. Hahaha.

I didn't have time to do the theme Thursday this week. I've been on the phone with the IRS. :0

Leeuna: I'm glad you appreciated the title. IRS? Isn't that next week's theme?

Wicked TT! The video almost killed me... :D

Interesting photos. Some I would not have thought of. Nicely done!
Ziva said…
Great, now I want chocolate. And oddly enough, a triangle to play. Funny stuff.
Deb said…
Ed Grimley is classic! That hair! Those pants! Plus, he's so musically talented!

I think of those stupid triangles we used in 6th grade math class.
That Pat Sajak seems like a nice guy, I must say.

Personally, my favorite Ed Grimley sketch is the one where Howard Cosell plays his uncle. Hilarious.

RA: Oh Martin Short's Ed Grimley is always good for a laugh.
nonamedufus said…
AngelMay: Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for visiting. Don't be a stranger

Ziva: Toblerone has got to be the best chocolate bar ever. And it fit today's theme. Beauty!
nonamedufus said…
Deb: You played triangles in math class? I loved the "find x, here it is".
nonamedufus said…
Chris: I think Grimley was Short's funniest character. Can't recall the Cosell spot. I'll have to go looking for it.
Baino said…
Haha fun post, love the triangle train makes sense to make triangular tunnels actually. And the vid . . sily fun. Love Martin Short.

Baino: I'm glad you enjoyed "try angles".

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!"
