That’s deep

by allthoughtswork

The next time you’re standing near a tall building, look up and imagine the whole thing is underwater and you’ve got to swim all the way up to the top for your next breath. It’ll be good practice for global warming. Actually, those of us in England and the Pacific Northwest get to practice this every winter.

Spider paws

(sung to tune of Spider-Man song)

Spider paws, spider paws,

So much cuter than spider jaws.

Flouting all of those fizziks laws.

The Salmon Cannon

John, seriously, “cat food for people”? You’ve obviously never had salmon mousse on butter crackers with a nice Chardonnay.

The eclipse insanity begins

by allthoughtswork

The South Carolina Lizard Man cometh. Crap, it’s starting.

I’m near ground zero in Oregon but I’m not too worried: all the hillbillies will be cowering inside, rocking back and forth with a copy of the New Testament in their laps. The rest will be blowing each other up with fireworks between sips of Budweiser. Nature’s plan.
