Monday, Monday!!!

Hey y'all!  Hugs, kisses, yada yada yada...

Did you ever have a too long week that was followed by a too short weekend?  Yeah, I'll bet you have.  But, it don't matter, does it?  It's Monday, so hi-ho, and all that junk...

I'll swear, The Mrs. just wore me out yesterday while I was supervising her working in the yard.  You know, I used to be "in shape."  Now I'm just "a shape."  This winter has really taken the edge off my fitness, but I reckon it'll come around now that the weather is getting nice, and you don't risk frostbite by being outside for more than 3 seconds.  Dangit!  This winter was too cold, and too long.  Dangit! So I'm not gonna gripe.  Much.

I have a less than zero pool of inspiration, so I'm just gonna show y'all some stuff.  Did you see the picture that the New York stinkin' Times ran yesterday?

Yep...You can go look at the article if you want to, but it quotes Obozo a bunch, so I wouldn't bother, if I were you.  Don't bother to thank me.

I swear, I think The Gooble gets wronger and wronger with each passing day.  We had a searcher show up here at Andy's Place that lets me know for sure that I am likely to have a long career as The Wrongness of The Gooble Czar™ .  Or, I might pass on the mantle to somebody else...because frankly the job can be quite tiresome.

Anyway, the searcher was looking for "pics of kids falling in love."  

And that is what The Gooble told 'em to look at.

Jeepers, I'd be some ticked off if I was them...

BTW, here's the picture in full-size.

I was gonna save it for a "Humpday Hottie" edition, but it needed to be used to once again point out the wrongness of The Gooble.

And heh!  Nyuk!  Walt sent me these things written by little kids about the ocean...  Oh man, did I laugh!  He said that there were 3 real gems in there.  But, I couldn't pick just 3, so here they are:

Children Writing About the Ocean...

1) - This is a picture of an octopus. It has eight testicles. (Kelly, age 6)

2) - Oysters' balls are called pearls. (Jerry, age 6)

3) - If you are surrounded by ocean, you are an island. If you don't have ocean all round you, you are incontinent. (age 7)

4) - Sharks are ugly and mean, and have big teeth, just like Emily Richardson. She's not my friend
any more. (Kylie, age 6)

5) - A dolphin breaths through an asshole on the top of its head. (Billy, age 8)

6) - My uncle goes out in his boat with 2 other men and a woman and pots and comes back with crabs. (Millie, age 6)

7) - When ships had sails, they used to use the trade winds to cross the ocean. Sometimes when the wind didn't blow the sailors would whistle to make the wind come. My brother said they would have been better off eating beans. (William, age 7)

8) - Mermaids live in the ocean. I like mermaids. They are beautiful and I like their shiny tails, but how on earth do mermaids get pregnant? Like, really? (Helen, age 6)

9) - I'm not going to write about the ocean. My baby brother is always crying, my Dad keeps yelling at my Mom, and my big sister has just got pregnant, so I can't think what to write. (Amy, age 6)

10) - Some fish are dangerous. Jellyfish can sting. Electric eels can give you a shock. They have to live in caves under the sea where I think they have to plug themselves in to chargers. (Christopher, age 7)

11) - When you go swimming in the ocean, it is very cold, and it makes my willy small. (Kevin, age 6)

12) - Divers have to be safe when they go under the water. Divers can't go down alone, so they have to go down on each other. (Becky, age 8)

13) - On vacation my Mom went water skiing. She fell off when she was going very fast. She says she won't do it again because water fired right up her big fat ass. (Julie, age 7)

14) - The ocean is made up of water and fish. Why the fish don't drown I don't know. (Bobby, age 6)

15) - My dad was a sailor on the ocean. He knows all about the ocean. What he doesn't know is why he quit being a sailor and married my mom. (James, age 7) 

Now, those are funny. Let's see what else I've got for y'all. Hmmmm....I got a bunch of good junk, but I don't want to keep y'all from what you're doing. Besides that, I gotta get on to work myself.

Look, y'all have a blessed day, okay? I love all y'all. I mean it.


  1. #4 is priceless. #15 has a lot in common with my Dad (except he's glad to have me ;-D )

    The only 'vaccine' I can think of for web burn-out is to buy some skates. I busted my knee this past Friday but man was it fun!

  2. My weekend was fine up until Sunday morning, 0200 hrs. It was ALL downhill from there.

    I like those "Kids say the darndest things" lists. But I always wonder if some of 'em aren't made up. Ya know... too funny to actually be true.

    Cynicism is an ugly thing.

    wv: arraggl, which describes my mood perfectly.


Don't cuss nobody out, okay?
