Recent conversation with Brenda:

Brenda: Does the sunset look strange to you? It looks like the sun is in front of the poles we're passing. What would cause that?

me: Uhhh...refraction? Light bending around objects, maybe.

Brenda: No, it's not that. It's probably more like I'm seeing an after-image on my retinas. I don't know.

me: You don't know but you're sure I'm wrong.

Brenda: Yeah.

me: So you don't have a single clue as to what is causing this phenomenon but you can be certain of one thing - I'm wrong.

Brenda: Now you've got it.

Driftwood

Washed up on the shores of my PC. In the spirit of Monty Python & The Holy Grail intro, "Those responsible for sacking the people who have just been sacked have been sacked," comes this notice. Beautiful pictures of a fairly clever notion, holding the sun. Go »

The Real Colon Blow Cereal

Holy metaphors, Batman! This recent All-Bran commercial from Kellogg's touts its ability to aid one in shitting enough bricks to build a barbecue. Go »
