Pardon me, ma'am, could you lift up your arms so I can read the first and last numerals?

Didn't do accents. Just read it like an American reporter reading a Brit story. Staging this would be fun. Wonder if our bank would let us film it there? :D

Speaking of mixing styles (lame segue)...

We have one month to go on our Classic DC Covers wall calendar. This month's was the great Flash-Superman race cover (Superman #199, 1967) with art by Murphy Anderson and Carmine Infantino. The mix of their distinct styles reminds me of covers here.

15 Impossible Superhero Crossovers (That Actually Happened) - meh team-ups compared to what we're used to here, but more proof Ross taps a vein (daily!) everyone enjoys.

That was really great. I read it aloud, slowly and seriously, to Milady Webworker. She LOL'd heartily. "I did not see that one coming!"

'Nother amazing collection, bob! Most new to me, but a few I've seen before: I think College/Weed is among the most ancient meme classics - might've even seen it on CompuServe before there was a Web. Maybe not. :) Still funny, and you've given it good company.

"They only see the headline in any story and accept whatever they are told without question." That's no exaggeration, folks!

Milady Webworker reads deeply and broadly. She knows the knews! :)

Her childhood friend is now an actress whose name you might recognize.

While Milady managed to escape the atheistic thought-ghetto of Leftist Chicagoism in which she was raised, practically all of her old friends and family remain not just left but hard core left. As you can imagine, Milady rarely talks politics with them, which of course can be a real strain because with most of them (as you know) everything is politics.

Years ago, Milady was on the horn with her famous friend, and of course friend veered into politics. For the sake of friendship, Milady actually shaded the truth, demurring as if she didn't know much about things.

Famous friend scolded, "All you need to do is read the headlines! This has become a running gag with us ever since.

Never mind the "continued on page 20" where they buried the actual (and headline-contradicting) news in the 47th paragraph. Just read the headline!

And I don't think she meant Breitbart!! :D

"I did a post yesterday that mysteriously disappeared. I got it back, then this morning it was gone again."

I don't want to get all technical, but we computer experts call that the "Bob at NSA messing with us again" syndrome.


Gasoline in a grocery bag: when you think Stupid has surely bottomed out, you always find you're nowhere near the bottom. Wonder if one of them was smoking while doing this?

I just hit "Like" but it doesn't seem an adequate expression! More like "aghast!" Okay, I "like" Pete's summation. :)

Gal "Woowoo Woman" Godot says she won't do WW2 if some accused guy is on the project.

Some editor at Marvel (or was it DC?) was fired for claims of naughtiness.

Seems t'me I saw three or four other cases in this morning's news feeds. The fires just keep spreading.

That said, if you look closely at Moore's left hand in that picture above, you can clearly see that he's texting while horseback riding. Unfit to serve!!

I hope the polls now are as accurate as they were a year ago for Trump!

"...pursued them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18 and he was in his early 30s, episodes they say they found flattering at the time, but troubling as they got older...."

Yeah, there's a Potent Quote!

Next up: thousands of now-mature women claim that they were hit on, molested, forced to do drugs, and to do odd things with naughty bits, by rock-and-roll stars of the 1960s, 70s... 80s... (primarily lead guitarists), but now these grandmothers have repentant groupie sadzness. And lawyers.

One fellow at college flipped out on acid. He didn't want to take it but got talked into it; he did not have good "trip guides"; and in the end his folks had to come collect him, he stayed so messed up. So, you see, it can happen.

The innumerable acid-takers who did not end up in that condition must've been saints. Who knew? Maybe the bar for sainthood was lower in the early 1970s?

The drawing looks like something John Lennon did in his sleep. Or on acid.

Our low-watt college radio station broadcast on 88.1, bottom of the FM band. Audio for broadcast TV channel 6 is just below that. Old pharts may remember we used to have fine-tuning dials on the TV. If your TV was a bit out of tune, you might pick up our station as the TV ch6 audio.

So my station manager warned me. And, sure enough, one night, I got a call from a local resident complaining about getting our station over the TV and complaining about what I was playing. (I think I was running a theme of rock drug songs and related; this was 1971, not that outrageous.)

I explained about adjusting the tuning on her TV, and she said, she didn't care about the fact we were bleeding over into her Gunsmoke viewing. She just wanted to object to the content!

Okay, that wasn't too related to singing coffee pots, but when the heck else will I ever get a hook to tell my ancient tale? :)

Chrissy, I know your comment was a week ago, but I'm'a gunna reply anyway, because, a hook to hang a webwork on is hard for me to resist, even a week-old one. (1:00 from Apr 2012)

Donald Trump gets around in a 757 with 24 karet gold plated seat belts.

His plane has a f------ dining room.

Your car won't start and has expired tags.

Tom Steyer impeach-Trump ad: Why yank it? Presumably, Fox's well-informed, conservative, fairnbalanced audience isn't going to turn on Trump because some fatcat took out an ad? I say, run a disclaimer around it, but take his money - as much as you can.

Is that wrong? :? ;)

Ha ha! I used [square brackets] instead of angled for italics.

That’s how you can tell an Ace of Spades commenter.
