Sunday Funnies


So, so many good ones, but hands-down, for me as a Steelers fan, I have no choice but to go with the Hines Ward cartoon. That's my favorite this week - with a little tear in my eye.

It was a good week for political cartoons. Many sports ones, too. My favourite has to be the bus with the misappropriately placed wheels, which actually happened, next to the plane with similarly placed wheels indicating the Air Canada unions had management by the balls.

Who is the woman with the tyres in the next to the panel about Air Canada ?

Alberta's Wildrose Party leader Danielle Smith. Here's a pic of the original and of the bus after they changed it... The original bus design was a bit of a bust.
I saw that photo of the bus with the misappropriately placed wheels earlier on your Facebook page. That was pretty funny...and this one is too, once you explain the Canadian context :).

Oh we Canadians can be pretty funny. And we can even laugh at ourselves.

And to think the Cardinals went a'courtin for Mr. Manning but alas he rejected us! heh heh.

And tire-wheel boobs Babe and tire-wheel balls Dude was the funniest for me! heh heh

Oh, Manning had to stay with a horse team and there's only so many. And he's not very religious so the Cardinals never would have worked.

I hate politics almost as much as I hate sports...
But I loved the Etch-A-Sketch one.

I know people who come pretty close to being that dense. :)

I mean, anyone knows that to download apps, you need to use the microwave instead. If you're downloading mp3's, it needs to be a microwave where the plate turns around in circles like a record player.

If you use the microwave you'll never have baby apps.

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…
