Truck Wrecks

You've probably heard of "Cake Wrecks", but when I saw this the other day, I thought that maybe I should start a "Truck Wrecks" blog. The poor Indian looks like one of the California Raisins on Prozac, not to mention the one-legged blind albino buffalo. No need for a "No Tailgating" bumper sticker on this one...

Seen Around Town

We were walking around downtown this evening and I saw this sign which I thought was kinda dumb, since everybody knows that bicycles can't read (and I apologize to any bicycles that may read this...).

Nerd Alert! Nerd Alert!

It only took 10 years, but I finally finished collecting state quarters! I'd been down to needing only Wyoming for a while, and today as I was cleaning out my desk drawer, what did I find hidden under a few guitar picks, pennies and paper clips?

(It was the elusive Wyoming quarter, try to follow along!)

Are You Special Funny?

I know a lot of special people, and I know a lot of funny people, but apparently, people that are "Special Funny" are in a class by themselves and deserve their own section in the greeting card aisle. So if you've been ignoring that Special Funny person in your life simply because you could never quite find the right words to say to them, your troubles are over!

The Yellow Kid

I started reading The Ten-¢ent Plague; The Great Comic-Book Scare and How It Changed America by David Hajdu (of course, if I adhere to my recent modus operandi, I will read about half and then have to return it to the Library) and am finding it fascinating learning how the comic book came to be. Most people agree that the Yellow Kid is the first commercially successful newspaper comic strip, first appearing in the New York World on February 17, 1895.

They don't write 'em like that anymore...

Cute Couple

Just thought I'd share this picture of a cute couple we saw in Chicago the other day. They weren't particularly talkative, but they seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Artistic Statement of the Day

I call it "Tree"...

I read somewhere once that doodling was a sign of genius or something... But what if your doodles look like this? Just askin'...

Moon on Wire

Get it? It's funny because it kind of sounds like "Man on Wire", that really cool documentary about the French guy that walked a tightrope between the Twin Towers (sniff)...
