Homo oecologicus


They’re dead serious (I think), but that didn’t stop me from laughing at every sentence. You couldn’t satirise gobbledegook this well.

Even by academic humanities standards, it’s a painful abuse of the English language.

More Alt-Tourism Australia, Spider Version


In keeping with my theme of  “Spider of the Day” and our recent post spruiking Australian “Adventure” Tourism, reader and fellow Sandgroper The Wizard of Woz has fowarded several posters for consideration by the Australian Alt-Tourism Commission.

In consideration of the sensibilities of some of our more spider-adverse readers, graphics are below the fold. (click for full size) Read the rest of this entry »

Lyle Republished


This has been going through my head all freakin’ day for absolutely no reason, so I’ll share that joy with you all. It’s one of Lyle’s greatest, a rather competitive title considering the genius of the man, but expressed in just the right sing-song voice gets completely stuck in your head.

I give you “A Squirrel Poem For Children”, originally published at the Lair of Blair:

A Squirrel Poem for Children

My squirrel plays the bagpipes;
He keeps them in my car.
He plays those nasty bagpipes
Wherever squirrels are.
Colt forty-five, meet bagpipes
And blast them all to hell.
Though squirrel plays the bagpipes
He does not play them well.

If anyone knows how to get it out of my head, I’d really appreciate it. I think I may have to gnaw my arm off to distract.

Is This A Sick Joke?!


Has anyone seen this enjoyable movie?

Now hands up who thinks it’s full of shit?

Heh. That’s what I thought!

Stuff Worth Lookin’ At


Via Paco (and The_Real_JeffS (ACCEPT NO IMITATIONS!)) we have some military photos.

The Tree Hugging Sister clearly understands my KFC addiction.

A rather unsurprising look at the changing qualities of marijuana.

Mythusmage has it about right on the Bigfoot hoax. I like the idea of Bigfoot being real, so these types of hoaxes also annoy me.

Michelle Malkin has the scoop on how desperate the Obama camp is getting.

Maggie’s Farm has some really cool photos of Golden Gate Park.

An intriguing look at some US law.

The man with the bike sets an evil challenge. I was afraid to guess.

This Is Just Great

Quote Of The Day


“I’m not sure we need to worry too much about the Golden Gate Bridge [in the event of an earthquake], because I’m not sure all of Western California will still be around.”

I heard this on an ad for a documentary looking at what’s being done to the Golden Gate Bridge for the inevitable earthquake.
