Sunday Funnies


Oooh. A good batch this week, Mr. Noname :). Being from the great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and knowing firsthand how much of a wanker Santorum is, I like that one the best this week.

In this country our government introduced legislation aimed at providing unfettered internet monitoring activity to the police. It's a huge privacy concern. You may have seen me post a couple of articles about it on Facebook last week.The media and the political cartoonists have been having a field day. Those cartoons are my favourites this week.

HA! I double chuckled at the humor at your own expense... here is a doofus! hee hee. However, that's where the resemblance ended. hee hee

AND... regarding internet monitoring.

I'm more than okay with it! Why? Maybe I'll get more followers! HA!


I think.

Ha, ha, more followers. I'll be sure and put in a bad word for you.

Yes, at the risk of tarnishing my reputation - comparing our PM to me - I ran the doofus cartoon. Actually, for me "dufus" is a nom de blog. In his case he really is a bloody doofus.

Wow, seems like old times... How nice to leave a comment here again although I have no idea what that comment may be. I'll play it safe for now, and simply say, "Have a nice day." God, I hate that comment!

Wow, a blast from the past. I hope you won't be a stranger, Don. Good to see you around. But, God, you've mellowed.

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.
