It is difficult to identify the proximate and ultimate causes of the failed Turpid Moraine Moraine Project, as this complex and sinister web of factors can pretty much be blamed on the people getting this report, but the effort is worthwhile as it keeps the report-writer from having to unload the boxes of returned things or suffer physical retribution from the Moraine Moraine clients.
The rest of the tragic report is over on the humor blog, as you expected. Also run there since last week's guide How To Write Out Numbers have been:
- Notes From The Dream World: Al Roker Subway Nudity Something Or Other, another message from the dream world, this one featuring Al Roker, the New York City subway as it does not exist, and the unclad.
- What Unseen Voices Laugh At In The Commercial Break, or, that moment when you feel most isolated from the world that studio audiences inhabit.
- Math Comics With A Side Of Mathematics Comics, just pointing over to the mathematics blog because stuff was happening there.
- Quarks of Nature, a rare-for-me reblogging of someone else's funny-to-me science-news-spoof.
- Statistics Saturday: Most Popular Unwritten Articles, a review of the things I haven't written that people particularly liked.
- Felix the Cat: Felix the Ghost-Breaker, which features Felix foiling a ghost in a way that makes me think of a pop culture reference.
Trivia: Benjamin Franklin's 1754 plan for colonial union proposed the North American colonies be lead by a governor general who would be a military man appointed and paid by the king. The Grand Council would have one or two representatives from each colony, roughly matching how much each colony made in tax payments to the general treasury.
