Sunday Funnies

Hahaha! Those about sum the week in news up for sure. BTW, our seafood, especially shrimp right now, is as good as always so far. In fact, many fish species being caught are very large due to the earlier ban on fishing. Sweeeet!

Hilarious and dead on as usual.
Awesome! That Airline Jet Blue one is the best thing I have seen all week!

Don: Hey, Don, that's great news. Put me down for some shrimp, eh? Funny how some good actually comes from such a friggin' disaster.
nonamedufus said…
Kelly: Well, I look for the funniest out there. Some editorial cartoonists are just hilarious.
nonamedufus said…
Brahm: Hey, how's my Studio30+ buddy? Some cartoonists had a lot of fun over that Jet Blue incident. They guy actually wanted his job back. I never heard the end of the story.

Those are great!

But I'm still glad I'm allergic to seafood. That way I can hide my cowardice. Just wouldn't be worth the risk, ya know?

What's the best gulf food you happen to see?

Quirks: Allergic to seafood? Poor you. Oh, well Starkist wasn't looking for tuna with good taste, but that tasted good. Sorry, Quirky!

Great minds think alike again. I used the Tea Partier/"We the People..." one on my Sunday piece about the Mosque controversary.

Jayne: That was a good one wasn't it. Do you think this mosque thing is all a tempest in a Tea pot? (heh, heh)

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!"

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 …
