Sunday Funnies


I concur with all of them, except for No. 4. My wife and I actually like Glee.

No, really.

UR: Turns out so does Osama, I guess. Good choice!

Thank the gods it's over!

"Crabby Road" - hahaha.

All funny, as usual.
Wait...the only reference I can find online was from a spoof site:

You and your fellow bloggers (rolling eyes ;) keep mixing up reality and fantasy that sometimes it's hard to tell what's true and what's not.

So true or not true? Give me sources. :)

I'm actually glad somebody cleared up the Glee question hovering in my mind.

I especially liked: I vented. And Crabby Road.

Most excellent!
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: Yeah, I liked that one too!
nonamedufus said…
UR: But that's the fun of satire. Some of it's true and some of it's...well, embellished.

I liked this cartoon because the cartoonist put together two thinks I don't like: Osama Bin Laden and Glee!
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: This week the interwebs were full of cartoons about the mid-term election results. I think the cartoonists are happy they're over too, like 00dozo.
Oh, I know...sorry to be sensitive about how I like show tunes. ;)

UR: Don't tell anyone but I really got off on Mamma Mia!

"Send in the Double Downs..."

That reminds me, Vegan Week ends in about five more hours.
I wonder how late KFC is open...

nonamedufus said…
Janna: Maybe they'll deliver!

Crabby Road was the best! Love it!

I love the Obama/Jon Stewart one, but they were all great. Guess the cartoonists had lots of inspiration this week. Thanks for the funny round-up.
nonamedufus said…
Linda: Yeah I guess there were Dems who had to beat-le it out of DC.
nonamedufus said…
Jayne: Oh I think voting day presented them with a field day. I guess not even a last minute appearance on The Daily Show saved Obama's Democrats.
Boom Boom Larew said…
Too bad Jon Stewart wasn't a candidate... I'd vote for him!
nonamedufus said…
Boom Boom: Amazing how he and Colbert attracted so many people to their Washington rally. People are obviously looking for something else.

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.
