Many good ones! However, I am totally clueless regarding the Longhorn cartoon. What did those Texans do now? hee hee

I really laughed at the entitlement guy jumping out of his recliner! I want in on that! hee hee

Poor Bama. Poor Michelle! Is that Romney or Perry in the car? Probably Perry. I'm just sad Pawlenty dropped out. Not because I believe in or support his platform, but think of all the fun puns with that name!

Pawlenty of this. Pawlenty of that!

So sad for us. hee hee

I like the Obama "we could do worse" one and the "look up" one. The latter's from a local cartoonist for the Ottawa Citizen newspaper. His stuff is just spot on. I'll be running pawlenty more of his stuff.

I'm with Quirks. Scratchin' my head on that Longhorn one, too. I guess you gotta be a football fan.

Hey, I know how to spell Gaddafi: "TLMF" (That Libyan Mother F*cker".) Well, it would certainly narrow it down.

Can't wait to see who the GOP picks as its Presidential Candidate. Oh, wait ... yes, I can.

The Texans are planning on launching their own TV network to broadcast all their games...a lucrative undertaking...and drop out of their conference. Rumour is none of the conferences will want them which begs the question just who will they play? Tibetan Monks?

I haven't followed the GOP race very closely but from where I sit the editorial cartoonists are certainly enjoying it.

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.
