Happy Father's Day to all you fathers out there.  And you mothers? Hey, you already had a day, it's our turn...

Funny stuff! You've earned the revocation of the red card I gave you.

Happy Father's Day!

In my opinion, the effective sleep agents as pictured are as right as rain. Rock on!

What? You mean there's no free beer for Father's Day? My dad's going to be sorely disappointed.

Terrific funnies Nomie!

Vuvuzela's torture still reigns effective and hilarious!


Sorry, that could get me banned from here, couldn't it?

hee hee

Happy Father's Day to you dear Sir!
RA said…
OK, how about free beer for the ladies then? Either that of the brooms start slippin....
It's raining on your site! (@Don: Ha! "Right as rain.")

Cool. I like the new design. And at some point I'm going to have to tune into a soccer game just to see what all the Vulavuzulzala horn thing is all about.

00dozo: GOALLL!!!

Don: Yeah, I've really been getting the distinct impression this week that the majority of Americans couldn't give a hoot about the World Cup. And I'm not talking about vuvuzelas!
nonamedufus said…
Boom-Boom: Welcome back my friend. This must be a bittersweet Father's Day for your Dad. I'll hoist one for him today.
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: Banned? Never! I like rock banneds as much as the next guy. (ha, ha...sometimes I'm too much.)
nonamedufus said…
RA: Right on! Although to paraphrase what they say - or sing - in heaven there's no free beer, that's why we drink it here!
nonamedufus said…
Frank: The new design's just a free blogger design. But I like it a lot more than the old one.

And on the horn thing, I've never before had the sensation of watching a televised sporting event from within a hornet's nest. It's a real buzz! (And it gave me something to write about!)

Great funnies today. I love the one with the slipping broom. Oh, and everybody is complaining about the horns. They should be banned.
nonamedufus said…
Leeuna: You think that broom slipped, do you? Those horns are the most annoying things I've ever heard. And they're incessant.

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 …
