Sunday Funnies


Nicky said…
LOVE the newspaper headline "Poll: Everybody disapproves of everything"!!
nonamedufus said…
Yeah me too. And they certainly disapprove of you winning the Tribal Blogs Makeover Contest!
Love the lol, by the way. So I missed the news of the U.S. Postal Service going completely under? I knew they were looking to close some offices...but everything?
Nipsy said…
Hahaha.. the snail mail killer is my fav... Just found out last night they're closing a major post office up in the city, luckily they're leaving our tiny one alone
Jaffer said…
She won ? Then obviously it was rigged !
nonamedufus said…
Poor verb tense choice. Should probably have read "...certainly would disapprove if you win". This isn't over yet!
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, LOL. It's an internet thing.
nonamedufus said…
It's the same thing here respecting the demise of the postal service at the hands of the internet. We had a postal strike recently. I don't think many people noticed.
nonamedufus said…
I think it's the way we're headed. People are relying more and more on the internet. Who writes a letter nowadays?
quirkyloon said…
The LOL one is my fave today. But there are lots of funnies.

However, the most ridiculous one is the SpongeBob. UNBELIEVABLE that anyone would disparage watching just the the best CARTOON ever. hee hee

But I have no opinion on the matter.

nonamedufus said…
Quirks, you know the thing about that SpongeBob cartoon is...look a squirrel!
No, I knew that...I meant LOL that she won and you didn't. I was sort of being facetious. :)

There is affordable manufacturing in Canada? Who knew? Lemme guess, it's a football equipment manufacturer.

nonamedufus said…
Sure there is. And we want to sell stuff to the States who just instituted a Buy American policy. A football equipment manufacturer would be win-win.
00dozo said…
I remember the States instituting a "Buy American" policy many, many (oh, so too many) years ago. If I recall, not soon afterwards, 'farm-a-cology' took over and most jobs went to countries that had cheap labour (Mexico comes to mind) merely because of the cheaper labour but the U.S. tax laws as well. The politics in this were/are so convoluted - if not questionable - but, like the song says, "Who's Sorry Now?"

(My apologizes for the foregoing rant but it's Sunday and Jayne ( is not around right now.)

Considering that the U.S. seems to be placing more importance on football than its economy, having a (Canadian) manufacturer of such sports equipment would definitely be a win-win. Hell, it might even earn Canada a seat in Congress.

Okay, my bad.

nonamedufus said…
Obama seems to have forgotten a little something called a Free Trade Agreement.

You should have guest-blogged for Jayne in her absence.
00dozo said…
The FTA? *stomach turns* It basically screwed Canada on the soft lumber issue. Again. But let's not go there.

As for "guest-blogging" for Jayne, I'll take that as a compliment (thank you). Unfortunately, I'd have to look up shit. I generally have to to that to understand some of these political cartoons.


Speaking of which, I have no idea what the Dallas Cowboys thing is all about, but it's on 60 Minutes tonight.

Football. Again.

Go figure.

It's actually the Indianapolis Colts who lost their highly paid QB to injury indefinitely this season.

(It was meant as a compliment.)

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.
