Sunday Funnies - Canada Day/Independence Day Edition

My American friends and I are sharing a patriotic long weekend. Yeah, here in Canada, Friday July 1st was Canada Day. In the States, Monday July 4th is Independence Day. In Canada we celebrated our holiday with a visit from the future King, William and his wife Kate. In the States they have their own royal family, Kate plus 8. Ha, ha, got you there. I hope both my Canadian and American friends are enjoying their long weekend and celebrating safely. Cheers.


As a nominal Catholic, I like that last one...of course, the Depends one really made me LOL and I don't mean "Lady of Lourdes" either, because well, that would be weird if I become Lady of Lourdes. Or if I became a lady at all...which I don't want to be, just for the record, but it's weird to think about, especially being from Lourdes.

LOL = Lady of Lourdes? Bahahahahahaha!

Hey, that cartoonist is just vying for a precious spot on a pack of cigarettes coming soon near you! heh heh

Great choice Nomers. As always. You are one of the few reasons I love Sunday morns!

Those are all really good ones. I especially like the hokey pokey.

The Blagojevich one just makes me happy. As a native Chicagoan, I have been rooting for him to get a new "state" room courtesy of the tax payers.

Blagojevich is just one of those guys that give politicians a bad name, don't you think?

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
