The Sunday Funnies and Factoids: The New Year’s Edition

Welcome to the New Year’s edition of the Sunday funnies and factoids.  Yep, it’s true, another year has almost passed and a fresh one is just around the corner.  It seems hard to believe at times but it really shouldn’t surprise anyone.  A lot has happened this year both good and not so good.  Good,  Barack  Obama took office for the second time.  Bad, Ted Cruz took office for the first time.  Good,  Justin Bieber recently announced his retirement.  Bad, Justin Bieber even more recently announced his retirement announcement was a prank.  Oh well, it can’t always be good news.  Just remember, with the pendulum of life, for every down there is two ups.  Happy New Years everyone.  Stay healthy, happy, and safe in 2014 and well beyond. 1) The Catholic Church denounced any New Year’s celebrations as paganism. Ironically, as Christianity rolled through the world, the Catholic community devised other types of...

Amazon Warriors Attack Drone Deliveries

From the Desk of NickiLeaks While Amazon corporate headquarters has labeled its new, drone delivery service a smashing success, back in Amazon’s drone maintenance department, people tell another tale.  “You wouldn’t believe what these nuts – I mean our valued customers – are doing to our drones, said one hourly worker.                                                                                                               “We sent one out with a book on reptiles and when the drone came back, there was a small alligator attached.  “We had a hell of a time getting it loose and Junior’s finger ain’t never going to be the same!” Junior agreed, adding in “You should have seen the one that them gay folks ordered will all that stuff from the crafts department.   “Took a while to get back here, but that drone sure is pretty  . . .  if you like pink! “And with them sequins and sparkles, you can see the durn thing ‘rite near to...

The Sunday Funnies & Factoids: Xmas 2013 Edition

Welcome to my first xmas edition of SF&Fs.  This will be my second last edition of the year.  Seems hard to believe that a new year is almost upon us and we will soon be entering the uncharted territory of 2014……the year of mid-term elections and the fall from grace of Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Kim and Kanye, and Beyoncé (the best stocking stuffer EVER). 1) Each year there are approximately 20,000 “rent-a-Santas” across  the United States. “Rent-a-Santas” usually undergo seasonal training  on how to maintain a jolly attitude under pressure from the public.  They  also receive practical advice, such as not accepting money from parents while  children are looking and avoiding garlic, onions, or beans for lunch.   2) Santa Claus is based on a real person, St. Nikolas of Myra (also known as Nikolaos the Wonderworker, Bishop Saint Nicholas of Smyrna, and Nikolaos of Bari), who lived during the fourth century. Born in...

Welcome to Hump…… errrr, Hempday

             Hemp    Keith has kindly given me this opportunity to write this paper on the uses of Hemp. I do not want to plagiarise so instead of reading my blather; I will post dozens of links that I have on its uses so you can read them at your leisure. Some links will be YouTube’s and I will caution on one; please keep your volume down, the camera person stood too close the mixing machine, so it is very loud, this is on the very last link! I will mark it for you, so you will be prepared. These links will not be alphabetized, or in numeric order. When I put the links in my favorites; I was hoping that they would be in some type of order, but alas! I will also mention that many of the posted links will refer to Hemp as a “drug”, and as...

Secrecy and the War on Christmas

Secrecy and the War on Christmas   “And this story just in, elf held in the War on Christmas for contacts with NickiLeaks.”   Edward Snowchild, an elf with an up-to-now impeccable record as a kids request analyst, was caught on film by The North Pole Secrecy Agency (NPSA) passing secret documents to a polar bear believed to be in the employ of several agnostic, liberal news agencies. Spokesreindeer Donder was quoted as saying that this was an unprecedented and damaging attack in the War on Christmas that posed a serious threat to giftmakers and packagers alike. “We hope children everywhere will understand that our precious Christmas freedoms do not come easily, but through the dedicated work of a cadre of elves, often working in secret. “Materials here are kept strictly confidential because if they leaked to consumers or competitors like Wal-Mart or Toys R Us, our basic freedom...

The Song of Autism

This is a poem that was submitted to me by William’s mother, our dear friend here at all-len-all, thinkingwomanmillstone.  It is a wonderful piece that deserves to be read by each and every one of us.  Thank you for allowing me to publish this poem,  thinkingwomanmillstone, and thank you, William, for penning it.     The Song of Autism ! When I was a little bitty boy, way up off the floor. I could hardly speak at all. I was sent to a school, the incorrect tool. I do very clearly recall, that I didn’t like it at all. One year later, in March of ninety-four, my mom found the school for me. It was a school for children with disabilities. The school was a lot smaller then. Oh, hasn’t it changed? I recall then, meeting new friends there didn’t seem strange. Here’s how! ! My autism came alive. I...

The Wall : The Last Great Album of the 1970s

Released in the UK in November 1979, and internationally in March of the following year, Pink Floyd’s The Wall might be, arguably, not only the greatest album of the 1970s, but the best concept album in the history of music.  The band finished touring the album in June 1981, in Dortmund, Germany, with eight sold out shows.  The short lived tour was so popular the band decided to record five shows at Earl’s Court in London that were immortalized on the album, Is There Anybody Out There? The Wall Live 1980 – 81. One must wonder if the band, or Roger Waters in particular, had any idea what a masterpiece they had just unleashed upon the world?  The 81 minute double album was constructed with a conceptual backbone that has not even remotely been paralleled.  A sketchy semi-autobiographical piece penned almost exclusively by bass player, band co-founder, and chief...
