Wednesday Snippets

Good morning Mr. and Mrs. Blogsphere and all the ships at sea, let's go to press!

Yes it's time, ONCE AGAIN, to enjoy some great and important news stories... all the news that's print to fit!

Space! The Final Frontier!

Drunken Zamboni Man

No charges for impaired Zamboni driver. Now, this is interesting to me for many reasons...

Does this mean you can get blasted and drive one of these things without fear of repercussions???

Does this mean most of the more famous drivers at the big rinks may have been under the influence???

Are there famous Zamboni drivers... and is there a hall of fame for the best???

Will MADD be starting a campaign to combat this??? (If you drink, don't clean the ice!)

How many people, outside hockey fans and skaters, even know what the hell a Zamboni is???

Realistically, I'm a STRONG anti-drunk driving advocate... and the thought that the goob driving a four-tonne vehicle cleaning the ice my kid is skating on is knackered scares the turd out of me.

Space! The Final Frontier!


Tinkerbell invades the Vatican.

Yeah, I know they're calling it an "Angel"... but it looks more like "Tink" to me.

Space! The Final Frontier!


The less said about this, the better.

...although I appreciated the semi-pun in the HEADline...

Man, I am so lowering myself with that joke...

Space! The Final Frontier!


A Scottish farmer has dyed his sheep red in an effort to cheer up drivers sitting in traffic jams... which, in turn, gives the rubber-neckers more weirdness to look at... which in turn causes more fender-benders... which delays traffic more.

What they don't tell you is the farmer has a "pay toilet" and "refreshment stand" near the road... and this is a clever bit of marketing.

Space! The Final Frontier!

Gallows Humour

There are two types of people in this world... those who found the movies Harold and Maude and Heathers a hilarious and those who didn't.... and the two types, as a rule, shouldn't marry... and this story is the proof.

Space! The Final Frontier!

10-4 Good Buddy!

If there's anyone who will appreciate and follow legislation on smoking, the Teamsters would be high on my list!

Space! The Final Frontier!


What? NOW you're telling us it's a place to avoid!?! DAMNIT!!! What are we going to do with our pre-paid vacation tickets!!?!??!

That Joey Ratz! He's always messing up our plans with his whacky edicts!

Space! The Final Frontier!


Not understanding things and not reading the news item thoroughly... AND making the mistake that this headline refers to some of the movies of the 1950's and 60's that contained the words "Wild" and "Women"... Mr. Fabulous stocks up on new tents and camping gear and is heading to the great outdoors...

...I hope he brought big shoes.

Space! The Final Frontier!

That's it for today... I'm gonna work on my Wordless Wednesday now...


The standard last note on the old blog... PLEASE SUPPORT THE DREAM!

This blog is here to help promote a dream that an entire family shares... that dream is to rescue an old London Double-Decker bus.


Please, if you have a few minutes, take some time to find out more about this bus and the kooky dream by clicking here.

This bus is VERY special to myself and the whole family, and any help any person can lend us would be most gratefully accepted.

If you or someone you know might be interested, there's our tiny banner site, HelpCoverTheBus.Com and a PayPal donation button (see the upper-right hand side of the blog) and, of course, a Cafe Press shop for T-Shirts and shtuff!
(...and who doesn't need some shtuff!)

Please help us make this dream a reality and save a piece of history!

We thank you for your support!

Please Note: We are also hoping for help from a public relations/marketing standpoint... If you might be able to assist OR know someone who might be willing to, please click here and read this entry...
