Sunday Funnies










Comments

I'll miss the Colbert Report. Guess I'll just have to start taping the Late Show instead.
I had heard of how bad CNN had gotten with its nonstop Malaysian airflight coverage, but didn't get to experience it until this past Monday when my mother and sister took us to a restaurant...and then again on Friday when I went to another restaurant and it was on the TV. It seems like it's always "Breaking News" too, but probably even moreso for the families having to have the constant reminder.

Oh, that one of Marois with the bag on her head is just TOO FUNNY! Love the Mad Man one and the Colbert one too.

Be interesting to see if he drops his persona for his new show and just what his real character is like.

There's something really wrong with the news media when they term "still haven't found the plane" breaking news.

That Marois one this week had to be my favourite.

Ah Dufus, how I have missed thee. And yes, it's all about the coverage.

This just in: tyne black box batteries are dead.
Great funnies Dufus. And I feel guilty for admitting that I'm so tired of the Flight 370 coverage. I feel for those who have had their hearts broken, but seriously, all the coverage is doing those poor family and loved ones NO FAVOR.


Great Colbert funny! I hope he does well.

Imagine just what's been spent on the search that never seems to end.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

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 …
