Friday Funnies and more freakishness

16 May

It’s funny ’cause it’s true.  And also sad.



I came across this in the paper the other day:

How exactly is this an honor? 

Every time I scrape off the bottom of my shoe, flush that tissue-encased crumpled body or chuck that gut-encrusted newspaper in the trash, I’ll think of you, Neil.  I love you, man!  sniff.

Susan, maybe you could weigh in on this.

And I think this one was in the paper on the same day:

Notice how employee Kristen Nestor talks about the skull as if it’s an actual person. 

There’s one in every new age store.  At least one.

Finally, you’ve all probably seen this by now, but it practically demands to be mentioned with the previous two:

I’m sorry, but if you belong to a religious order based on fictional extraterrestrial monk-ish knight characters who record themselves in light saber battles in their spare time, wouldn’t you think a Darth Vader attack inevitable?  Wouldn’t you almost see it coming?

But then, of course, the dark side clouds everything.  Impossible to see the future is.

    That Wii Fit video is awesome.

    I too am having difficulty with the connection between Neil Young’s social activism and spiders. I mean, I might like to have something named after me, even if it’s a spider, but if you’re going to talk about someone being “worthy” of an honor, such as having a spider named after him, for a particular reason that is something other than the reason that he is famous in the first place–shouldn’t there be some kind of logic to it? Does this spider have a role in certain causes that Neil holds dear? Is Neil involved in spider activism of some kind? Does Neil like spiders? Why not just say, “I named this spider after Neil Young because I really liked that Mirror Ball album”? Isn’t one reason just as good as the other?

    Love your take on the Jedi story. That’s hilarious.

    Thank you for the hearty laughs this morning. Although that spider picture is scary. Scary!

    I keep wondering if there are more spiders under my bed since I killed that one. Life is hard for an arachnophobe.

    madhousewife—Exactly! I was having trouble with the connection. So random. Plus spiders are just blech and probably one of the most universally despised creatures.

    Susan—There are no spiders under your bed. There are no spiders under your bed. There are no spiders under your bed.
