Sunday Funnies


We interrupt our regularly scheduled program with this breaking news bulletin.

Hey, look at this. Skeeter over at Dead Dog has started up a caption contest and guess who won last week. Yeah, that's right, moi. The dufus has still got it. So here's the pic and my beguiling caption:

Red, did you park your truck in that tree? Son of a birch!

We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

I'm going to miss Jack Layton. I liked him, even though I didn't think he'd make a good prime minister. Mind you, I would have preferred him to His Royal Harperness. I saw Jack on Tout Le Monde En Parle, and he came across as a really good guy and demonstrated intelligence, humour and class.

Michelle Bachmann scares me. That woman is just a bible thump away from batshit crazy.

I was surprised the NDP garnered enough vote to form the Official Opposition but nothing could prepare me for the huge outpouring of emotion right across the country over his death. I certainly don't think HRH would have achieved nearly the same level of condolence.

That's who got the plague of frogs! Sit back and relax, Quirks. Pull up a toad stool, why don't you.

I wonder if Irene had anything to do with that?

Thanks for the plug! And congrats! Btw, mine runs from tue to mon.

Since my comments are invisible, I can breathe a sigh of relief as I admit that I have absolutely no clue who Jack Layton is.

Also, I ran a red light today, and sometimes I like smelling my own farts.

Hello Janna, thanks for sharing. And now we will recite the prayer of serenity! Sorry, had a AA meeting flashbach!!

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.
