Mother’s Day Hot Links

Arthur C. Clarke‘s predictions in 1974 (45 years ago). Wow.

What happens in the dishwasher stays in the dishwasher.

Fun Facts To Know And Tell 1:
President Reagan once gave a speech about manure.

Fun Facts To Know And Tell 2:
It all has to do with electrons. Mammals need iron for energy. Octopi need copper for the same reason and their is blood greenish-blue rather than red.

Fun Facts To Know And Tell 3:
WWII fighter pilot Jack C. Taylor (1922-2016) retired from the military in 1945 and started a successful car leasing business in 1948. He named it after one of the aircraft carriers he flew missions from – the USS Enterprise.

Octopus Hentai Fail. Girl got her cheek beak bit (and no, she wasn’t trying to eat it). [Update: Sources say she WAS trying to eat it.]

I didn’t like Never-Trumper Ben Shapiro before, and now I like him even less. What a snot.


Great Green Globs” as sung by Penn Gillette in 1994. It’s slightly different from what I remember:

Great big globs of greasy grimy gopher guts,
Dirty little birdy feet, mutilated monkey meat,
French fried eyeballs dipped in kerosene:
That’s what I had for lunch.

“All mixed up with all-purpose porpoise pus?” Nice addition. The differences are probably regional.

In 1937, The Mass-Observation project began in the UK. Some consider it the grandfather of blogging.

In 2017, a theatrical department theorized that Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump because she’s a woman, so they reversed the genders and re-enacted the presidential debates verbatim, including body language and gestures. Afterwards they polled the audience. Male Hillary still lost. Full story here, complete video here.

Imagine If This Were Your Kid Hot Links

Sunday, 24 March 2019

In January of this year, The Washington Post, CNN and others selected and excoriated an innocent 16 year old kid for doing absolutely nothing other than to tolerate loud, racist harassment by leftist adults who appeared at an orchestrated event designed to advance their own political agenda.
Now he’s got a hammer.

Hot Shot Ain’t Cool.

Breaking news / bombshell / tipping point / the walls are closing in / the beginning of the end. They’re called Talking Heads for a reason.

This attractive young woman took a DNA test and found that she has mostly European ancestry, and she’s upset about it. Perhaps it’s a hoax advert?


Recent E-Mail convo went kinda like this:

“Give me a precise number.”
“I can’t do that for liability reasons.”
“All I want is a general range.”
Here you go.”
“Ha ha. No, I mean a ballpark figure.”
Here you go.”
“I meant average.”

Here you go.”
“Bite me.”


Bunkessa signed up her uncle for “Dip Of The Month Club” as a Christmas present.
I guess that means that on the first of every month some new goober is going to show up at his door. “Hiya! Here I am! Where’s your refrigerator? Can I use your phone? I need to borrow your car for a few days. Can we watch ‘The Brady Bunch?’ Oops! I hope that don’t stain your carpet.” etc.

On the other hand, maybe it has to do with Skoal…


BTW – According to this informal poll, “The Little Drummer Boy” is tied with “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer” for the No.1 Christmas song you could live without.

Saturday Matinee – Boop, Bongos, Bass & Bob, Gatemouth Brown and RIP Roy Clark

Saturday, 17 November 2018

In 1932, Franklin Roosevelt ran against incumbent President Herbert Hoover for the presidency, hence the caricatures, and there are hints about the repeal of Prohibition in this cartoon. Hoover first shows up at 0:45. “Mr. Nobody” (1:12) probably refers to the other six candidates, including 3rd runner-up Socialist Party candidate Norman Thomas. Roosevelt’s nose and chin appear at 2:12.

The depiction of Congress at 2:28 is relevant today (as is Betty Boop twerking, promising everything for free). [Video found via here.]

Yep. That’s Penn Gillette (of Penn & Teller) on bass ca 1991. I first saw it in a movie theater as part of “Animation Celebration” or something, but I couldn’t find a link.

Clarence Gatemouth Brown (1924-2005) didn’t use a pick, and his calluses were tougher than woodpecker lips. Here’s his take on Bill Doggett‘s classic 1956 hit “Honky Tonk.” Brown was a speed blues artist as well. (If you doubt me, check out “Pressure Cooker.“)

RIP Roy Clark (1922-2018) What a great musical talent.

See you back here tomorrow for more extraneous arbitrary extrapolations.
