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 - 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.
