Sunday Funnies


All very funny! Hard to pick a favorite! I do plan to tune in to see some commercials.

What a week for E-toons.

Ha! Love the Super Bowl one. We only watch it for the commercials, too. Well, I do enjoy the big game just so long it isn't a blowout. And I gots me some wings and veggie dip!

EG: We don't get the commercials north of the border. We'll just have to watch the same old Canadian commercials we always see.

00dozo: We're dong chili. It's kind of a tradition. Go Steelers

dufus: What's "dong chili" - a Freudian segue from the caption contest? Heh, heh.

The Steelers?? Naw, I'm rooting for the Packers even though I don't know any of the stats on either team. They were my dad's favourite team.

Oh, and I hated when they always pre-empted the good commercials with Canadian ones. But, hey, you'll be able to get them online afterwards.

I'll admit it: I only watch the Superbowl for the commercials. I don't even care about the halftime show.

However, I am rooting for the Packers. They were Red Foremans's team and that's good enough for me.

00dozo: Hey, haven't you ever heard of dong chili? Something tells me I'm do(i)ng it wrong.

Kelly: But Red Foreman was fictitious. Maybe by the end of the game the Packer's will be too.

So many good ones Sir Nome!

But I gotta say the last one?

Totally me!

hee hee

Thanks for starting my day off on the right foot.

Quirks: Funny how the Super Bowl has become so much more than a football game, isn't it.

UR: You're reading while you're walking? Good on ya. I've been trying to get through Stephen King's "Under the Dome". I'm about 450 pages in. Well less than half-way. Great book, but time-consuming.

Yeah, there were some great commercials last night...

But my favorite funny this week is Mubarak as Punxsutawney Phil.

Boom Boom. That guy just can't take a hint, can he?

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 …

 Lust and Wonder - Aug…

I Do

It was noon. The sun shone brightly in the sky. Birds chirped merrily in the trees. The sounds of traffic drifted up from the street. George picked up his keys and headed for the apartment door. This was a special day. Perhaps the most special day of his life to date. Today was the day he would ask Georgina to marry him. Georgina was his girlfriend. French. From France.

He'd covered all the bases. He'd bought the ring, a bouquet of flowers and a set of knee pads. If she said "no" at least they'd have a good laugh over the knee pads. If she said yes they'd remember him down on his knees this day forever.

He grabbed everything, locked the apartment door and descended the stairs. The restaurant was nearby so he decided to walk. As he waited on the corner for the light to change he thought of spending the rest of his life with Georgina. Not that he was being presumptuous but he had a good sense she felt the same way too. He was sure it was kismet. And besides wi…
