Pigs Fly?

Disruptive Pig Kicked Off Of US Airways Plane

No, not a figurative pig like millionaire mockumentary producer Michael Moore because he doesn't fly ordinary airlines like the rest of us...

This was a literal pig, who was ordered off a U.S. Airways plane at Bradley International Airport in Connecticut on Wednesday after crewmembers determined the emotional support animal had become disruptive.

Didn't anyone ever tell this person that pigs don't fly.

These pics certainly put some things into perspective.

Smoothie Anyone?

A juice stand worker in Lima places a skinned frog into a blender along with carrots, the Peruvian maca root and honey. The frogs are from the Telmatobius culeus species, locally known as the Titicaca water frog. It is listed as critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

No wonder they're endangered... the Peruvians are drinking them into extinction.

I think I'd rather eat a s**t sandwich than drink a frog smoothie.

OK, maybe not that, but you get my drift.

Brrr... Not So Much.

Today we will reach a high of 74 degrees with lots of sunshine.

Please don't hate us Floridians because our state has wonderful weather right now, but if you do...

Cat & Turtle Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday...

... our cat, Shoshin, takes a stroll with the newest member of our family, Diego, the yellow bellied slider turtle (Trachemys scripta scripta).

Diego is a well socialized turtle who's not afraid to eat out of your hand. Just count your fingers afterwards ;-)

Anyway, it's all good.

Happy Friday, everybody!

The Opacity Of Obola

“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” says Jonathan Gruber, the MIT economist who helped write Obamacare. “And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.”

Old news to me, but it's nice to have a sound byte that the MSM can broadcast for months in an endless loop on their 24 hour news cycle...

OK, sarcasm off.

I can dream, can't I?

Holy Quiz, Sister


Three nuns die and go to heaven, but all must answer one question to get in.

The first nun is asked, "Who was the first man on Earth?" She says, "Adam." Lights flash and the pearly gates open.

The second nun is asked, "Who was the first woman on Earth?" She says, "Eve." Lights flash and the gates open.

The third nun is asked, "What was the first thing Eve said to Adam?" Puzzled, the nun is says, "Hmmm, that's a hard one." Lights flash and the pearly gates open.

Loretta What?

Obama Urging Senate To Confirm Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch Quickly

I wasn't wearing my glasses so when I first read the headline for Obola's pick for AG, I saw the name Loretta Lynn.

Did I mention the font was really small, too.

Anyway, considering the real nominee, I think the iconic country superstar probably might do a better job and definitely a better job that the last holder of the position.

Killer Selfies

Killer selfies are really happening all too often. This is just the latest incident:

Polish Medical Student Dead After Taking Selfie In Spain

People need to contain their selfie fervor in unfamiliar or dangerous surroundings.

Wednesday, November 05, 2014


There's a spring in my step this morning after news of the dramatic shift in power:

Empire State Building Lights Up Red In Celebration Of Republicans Winning Senate Majority

Now the GOP will have its work cut out for it just keeping Obola from using executive orders.

The Spider Zone

It is a bone chilling sight to see one of these Florida Huntsman (and Huntswoman) spiders crawling on your wall.

They're lightning fast and very aggressive.

I don't care that they're not venomous and they eat bugs. They're not welcome in my house or my garage.

Now I've got the heebie-jeebies.

Voice Mail Descent?

[click comic to enlarge]

Please Do Not Leave A Message: Why Millennials Don't Like Voice Mail

I'm no millennial (18-34) and I loathe using voice mail. I rarely leave a message and I never check mine.

I'm seeing signs of others feeling the same way.

What say you?
