Humor blog update day! So here's some pictures from Parc Festyland while I lure you into reading something.
Festyland park statuary, in the dinosaur-themed area. The dinosaur seems upset at the considerable plant growth on its legs.
Festyland park statuary, amongst the pirate-themed areas. An earless cat? Or something? The exact nature of this statue was a topic of debate.
Festyland park statuary, in the go-kart track. As we said, fish-o-plane.
And what's going on in my humor blog? Recently? Well ...
- My Favorite Fonzie, this week's major piece. I discover a bit of kitsch from the mid-70s at the record show.
- Another Day On The Starship Voyager, captioning a scene of Captain Janeway not looking comfortable.
- Finley Peter Dunne explains High Finance, a Mister Dooley piece that's indispensable for understanding business.
- A Short But Pleasant Ride in translating a tweet.
- What’s Going On In Apartment 3-G, a public service in explaining the story strip. The answer is: nothing in going on. Indeed, more nothing is going on than anyone has ever seen before, and it's hard to believe.
- Statistics Saturday: My Readership, July 1st through 10th, In Alphabetical Order, and of course there's a tie.
- On The Loose with Thelma Todd and ZaSu Pitts at Coney Island! The jokes may not be the strongest, but I really like ZaSu Pitts and hey, Coney Island.
- Tourism Ends At Home, last week's major piece. Me getting a bit mopey or thoughtful about why we only do interesting stuff when we're away from home.
Trivia: In 1961 A&P stock sold about $70.50 per share. In 1964, after a general 20 percent rise in United States stock prices, it sold for $34.50. Source: The Great A&P And The Struggle For Small Business In America, Marc Levinson.
Currently Reading: Opus: The Complete Library, Berkeley Breathed. I'd got this through the Humble Bundle package a few months back and only just now got around to reading it. The pages are scrambled, all out of order. I can't figure that I got a corrupted download since the pages are all fine, but it's hard to imagine how their source file could've been so screwed up either.
