In 1893, the average beer consumption [in Cincinnati] was 40 gallons for every man, woman and child – 2-1/2 times the national average. [From Cincinnati’s Rise and Fall as a Brewery Town.]

Little Kings Cream Ale” is sold in 8-packs of little green 7-ounce bottles across the nation. It was the result of a request by Ted Gregory (aka “The Ribs King“) to the Schoenling Brewery Co. when the beer taps went down and his customers didn’t want to pay for 12-ounce beers to go with their shots of whiskey. TRUE

Fun Facts to Know And Tell Department:

[Via the US Postal Service Website]: The following live, day–old animals are acceptable for mailing  when properly packaged: chickens, ducks, emus, geese, guinea birds, partridges, pheasants (only during April through August), quail, and turkeys. Day–old poultry can be delivered to the addressee within 72 hours of the time of hatching, except for Sundays and Holidays. Also included in the list are Baby Alligators, Baby Caimans, Chameleons, Frogs, Lizards, Newts, Reptiles and Amphibians, Salamanders, Tadpoles and Toads, and Giant Bone-Crushing Weasels. (Okay, I added the last one.)
[h/t Mrs. N. Mr. N. opined that the chicken chicks are being used as drug mules.]

Mail Order Dog.

Giant Bone-Crushing Weasels are estimated to have been about the size of a Jaguar.

Life at the Boeing Field Apartments reminds me of these classics:

Gary: Landlord of the Flies.

Shut Up, Little Man!

Steve Goodman sings backward.

Goodman was also the author of The Best Train Song Ever and it saved Arlo Guthrie’s career.

[About the Title: My high-school geometry teacher could speak backwards, phonetically, and that’s how he pronounced “Golden Hudepohl Beer.”]

National Jukebox: Historical Recordings from the Library of Congress is very cool.

This is my new favorite song again because it fits my attitude.

Holland–Dozier–Holland. You’ve heard their stuff (including this).

Martha Reeves was born in Alabama, but pulled off a convincing British accent in this interview.

“We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.  If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear. In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act.” -George Orwell

The .Gif Friday Post No. 491 – Structural Pringles, Hot Pants & Bully Smackdown

Friday, 30 June 2017

[Found here, here and here.]

I showed the last one to Sensei Bunkessa. She said jump kicks are risky, that your adversary could react and block, which means you’re likely on the ground. Not sure if the vid is legit, or staged for a demonstration video, so any help to verify the source would be appreciated. We’ll give you some awesome credit and splatter it all over the internest.

This is the 491st .Gif Friday Post. That means that there’s over 14K .gif animations in The Archive and even I am amazed.

Saturday Matinee – Crater Face, Postmodern Jukebox, Gunhild Carling & The Best Moth Joke You’ve Ever Heard

Saturday, 26 November 2016

Crater Face” is an animated short about two lonely moon pimples and a deranged astronaut (by Skyler Page).

Awesome RickRoll by Postmodern Jukebox on the RMS Queen Mary in 2016, featuring Gunhild Carling on vocals, trumpet, recorder, trombone & bagpipes. Really.

BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE!

I knew a guy who could play two saxes at the same time (with rubber bands holding down a couple of keys) and I can believe that someone might be able play two trumpets simultaneously, but three? Had there not been a video I’d have never believed it.

The song is “El Manisero  (aka “The Peanut Vendor) and it dates to 1930s Cuba. Stan Kenton’s version is my favorite because of all the discordant stuff that he worked into it.

Classic Norm MacDonald delivery.

Have a great holiday weekend, folks. Enjoy the leftovers while you can, and don’t EVEN try to retell that moth joke because you’ll fail miserably.
