My humor blog: what was it doing the past week? This stuf:
- From The June 2016 Scraps File: Unused Text For You, last week's big text roundup. Enjoy!
- Statistics Friday: June 2016 As It Was For Humor Blogging, looking over readership numbers.
- Statistics Saturday: The Twelve Most Patriotic English Words to be seasonal.
- The Dustin Hoffman Question based on my hobby of trying to remember stuff, which produces wrong guesses about stuff.
- Beach Fun Time! and some news from New Jersey.
- Something For Fans Of Bad Stuff in the form of something awful that's snuck into vintage-1930 Popeye comics.
- While On The Road I find some comedy and that'll have to do.
- A Name To Be Reckoned With, this week's major piece and inspired by the ever-fruitful subject of sports venue naming rights.
Some more AnthrOhio Saturday. While bunny_hugger was hard at work at AnthrOhio Live I puttered around and peeked in on, among other things, the FrankenFursuit event. You might not want to see some of this stuff.
The bin I used to collect votes (and, later, dispense candy). Here, with the slightly revised text that makes clearer what the question ``Trash Panda: Yes Or No'' might mean.
The FrankenFursuit Competition! Here, people grabbed scraps of things and built scrappy figures.
So, you know, for building a bat costume out of scraps in under two hours this lands safely in Five Nights At Freddy's territory.
The end of FrankenFursuiting! And, really, given the constraints, this is not the most nightmarish Sid and Marty Krofft program ever made.
And then someone goes and spoils the whole FrankenFursuit spirit by putting in way more time and budget and everything. I hadn't meant to photograph them, but I touched my camera while two were nearby and they started posing, and then a third joined and at that point it was easier to photograph them than not. I wouldn't want to be rude.

PS: Theorem Thursday: The Jordan Curve Theorem, a bit of mathematics that's obvious and easy, except if you do it right, in which case it's too hard. Isn't that always the way?
