As it's Thursday night or Friday morning it's time to go over my humor blog entries from the past week. These are they.
- What You’ll Be Sick Of This Month, last week's major piece, on the coming things to be talked about way too much over the coming month.
- Rob Schneider’s The Animal Or Something, in which I learn the plot of forgotten 2001 Rob Schneider movie The Animal, which seems to have an awful lot of stuff happening considering it's a Rob Schneider movie called The Animal.
- Statistics Saturday: Seven Words Whose First Syllables Are Like Those Of The Days Of The Week and you'll never guess what came up for Tuesday. Thursday's also kind of a stretch.
- Caption This: Peeking In On … Are They Up To The 25th Century Yet? A picture with words.
- Oh, Yeah, Did The World End Yet? (Not as of publication.)
- Twelve Things Only Rarely Mistaken For Pinball Machines Or One Another in case you needed a list of some.
- Another Mystery From The Back Side Of The Peanuts Page-A-Day Calendar, as I'm once again out of comic step with the world around me.
- A Partial Review of the Plants and Animals of Australia set off by a particularly alarming Mark Trail.
And now to putter around Cedar Point Halloweekends just a tiny bit more. We're almost done.
bunny_hugger sitting upon the ValRaven throne. We'd also sat on this at Roller Coaster Appreciation Night, but that night was dark and rainy and the chair was terribly wet. We trust this throne is going to be part of the new roller coaster's theming. It's still a nice prop to have in advertising the coaster. Also: cool logo.
Wooden gryphon, and the carver we expect carved it. This is in Frontier Town, at the wood-carver's shop.
This is not an antique carousel animal. We learned that from talking with the head carver the year before. It's a modern Philippine replica. The Snoopy doll is contemporary too.
Some of the wood carvings at the shop, done for I don't know what purpose. Also mysterious: the thing in back labelled ``Baldwin Wallace University''. Is somebody swiping stuff from small Cleveland-area schools?
Oh yeah, they have a petting zoo in Cedar Point. And they had animals and everything out that day. See how happy the bunnies were at being on display in the October chill.
Oh yeah, I had that guinea pig when I was in high school.
