Weird Thoughts

The Local Puppy Trainer had this short piece: Fire destroys $500,000 RV. My initial reaction was – where were the servants?

Over at Digby’s there’s an ad on the left sidebar for Bag News Notes that features a picture of Netanyahu and his graphic at the UN. The first thing I thought was that it was Jimmy Durante playing an Acme salesman making a call on Wile E. Coyote. If you think you have to be ancient to know who Jimmy Durante was, you have no idea how long it has been since anybody used a metal ball bomb.
