I think I'd do myself in if I had to be Lindsay Lohan's cellmate.

CL: Boy, if those fingernails could talk, eh?

Heh heh - the soccer ones are great!

You know it's a slow news day when Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy are pre-empted by an overpaid professional ball player's arrival in Miami. An entire hour?? Really? And, no, I didn't watch it.

00dozo: I watched the ESPN/TSN special hour coverage of his announcement. What a waste of time. I wonder how much he made off of it? Never since, the Gretzky trade from Edmonton to LA have I watched such a silly spectacle.

ESPN won is right! Of course James didn't fare too badly either...

I always look forward to Sunday Funnies.

Another excellent and snort worthy collection Sir Nomie!

So Lady Liberty wears a bikini under her robes, eh? Who knew she was so progressive? I thought for sure she would wear one of those old fashioned puffy bathing suits. (I'm sure there's as name for them, but I'm too lazy to google it).

Don: ESPN got the viewers, I'm sure. They sucked me in. But I wonder what they gave Lebron for that exclusive hour?

Quirks: I'm glad you enjoy my journey across the editorial pages of America in search of the best/funniest/most thought-provoking cartoons each week.

"She wore an itsy bitsy teenie weenie polka dot bikini"!

I read somewhere that James' presence on the team is expected to generate more tourism. WTF? If I'm going to Miami, it's not going to be for b-ball, even if I could get tickets.

Ha - I completely missed the "Future of America" toon. Yep, there is still hope that Canada will overrun the U.S., one way or another.

00dozo: They better hope it generates tourism. They've got to find the $s for his salary somewhere.

Oh, and the future of the US? Victory through bird poop!
I think that's it's true. It's not the heat. It's the humidity. ;)

And I agree with the comic about the Canada Goose Poop. I think there's about only one good thing Canada has brought us: Red Green. OK, wait, two good things: Red Green and nonamedufus. That ought to assuage your ego for a while. :)

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.
