As Congressmen on both sides of the aisle continue to debate over the best way to completely abandon the gun control question without looking like careerist cowards, the issue of guns in America continues to be at the forefront of people’s minds, on all sides of the issue. But for today let’s turn our attention, […]

I was going to do a “Fiscal Cliff” caption contest this week – and maybe I have in a roundabout metaphorical way – but all the photos of politicians with solemn “concerny” faces and stern “blamy” faces was giving me a headache, so I went a different way.  Take a moment and hit us with […]

Last week’s caption contest had a lot of great entries. If you haven’t, you really should take a moment to read the entries here.  Narrowing it down to 5 meant finally just flipping a coin, basically.  But flip a coin I did, to reach these finalists.  (Also, there were some great ones that I finally […]

Well, this week’s vote on the caption contest was a real nail-biter!  Okay, you probably weren’t obsessively checking.  And if you were, you may not have been, in fact, biting your nails in anticipation.  Which is good, because – really – that’s a terrible habit.  So’s knuckle-popping.  And I say that as a compulsive knuckle-popper.

The Voters Have Spoken. Now It’s Time To Vote. Again.

Well, having you vote for the finalists in last week’s caption contest seems to have gone well overall.  Certainly made selecting finalists easier for me.  There is, of course, one little thing… People.

First thing’s first: voting on the caption contest!  I was worried that I’d put up a sub-par photo for you, in terms of being caption-worthy.  I was also worried too many people would know the back-story.  But even if I did, the entries were awesome, thus establishing one of my goals: to be able to […]

I’ve decided that I may be what’s wrong with America.  It’s selecting finalists for these ‘Weekly Questions of the Week’ that have done it.  “Oh, I’ll have these little questions of the week, and pick a couple finalists, and it’ll be fun and a way to feature bloggers!” I thought naively.  Little did I know […]

May The Curveball Be With You. Always.

Sometimes, when people are feeling grim, or have just uncovered some historical horror like The Brazen Bull, they’ll make a comment like “There is no horror we can think up that we haven’t inflicted on one another.”  And then you look at each other and nod, cynically.
