Oh, the humility, the not even Santa's safer from bell jingling??

Nice round of Sunday Funnies :)
As always, a perfect way to start a Sunday morning...

...except you have to quit having those downers of a "funny." This week's: McCain. That's just downright sad :(.

A great lineup! I almost spewed coffee with the Santa frisk.

And the banana peel - Leslie is surely grinning at that one!

That's a great group of comics. Thanks for the laugh.

You never fail to give us good laughs on Sundays Mr. Nome!

I particularly spewed my DDP at Wikipeeks.

But dang, won't that REALLY happen.

I forsee a huge rise in travel by trains in the near future. And if you have to go oversees? Ships and possible pirates don't seem so bad anymore.

00dozo: The 'jingle my bells" one was a hoot.

HJ Smith: See you next Sunday. Same time, same blog.

Quirks: I think the terrorists have won.

G: Pretty easy to know if he's been naughty or nice.
Loved the Leslie Nielsen one . . . and I think he'd have appreciated it. He was a comic genius.

Chris: ...and Canadian! His brother was in federal politics. I met them both in the early 80s at a Press Gallery Party. It was late in the evening and Leslie was waking around sounding a little fart machine in his hand and he and his brother were both in stitches over how people reacted.

Lovin' the banana on the road! Perfect!

Boom Boom: The guy started out as a serious actor but never experienced more success than as a comedic actor. I loved Airplane and the Naked Gun series.

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.
