"Pachydermatologist" - this is the kind of thing that I will wake up chuckling about weeks from now.

The elephant just needs some wrinkle remover - better get the Jumbo size.

Tuesday Prude: …Will you lose all respect for me if I confess I hadn’t heard of a chiasmus?…

I must admit, it was new to me, too. Yet obvious by context.

Today, I can watch this and smile at the talent involved. At the time, I might've appreciated some of the gals (knowing, humble boy that I was, that Annette was too old and out of my league), but on the whole I was impatiently waiting for the next installment of the Hardy Boys, or "Meeska Mooska Mousketeer, Mouse Cartoon Time now is here!"

Those adult men still creep me out, though.

We have apparently failed to transmit the finest of our culture to the next generation. Sufferin' succotash!

Many grins & chuckles here. Great new ones, some classics.

Should be noted that the "Unions our my cup of tea" protesters are teachers! Of coarse.

Speed bumps when children are playing is hilarious. That's what you get when you have slow children, of quarts.

Apparently I "liked" my own comment. Funny system: Liking something a second time = not Liked.

But then, why shouldn't we all like our own comments? If we didn't like 'em, we shouldn't post 'em! Yeah, makes sense. (Thumbs up self.)

Mia Farrow… Miaaa Farroooow…

Didn't she get shot up real good along with that fellah from the Dobie Gillis show, in that wretched movie… oh, now, wait - that was Faye Dunaway.

Oh, yeah. now I remember. Briefly Mrs. Frank Sinatra.

We all should care about what she tweets because… ummm…

This cartoon has a real old-timey political flavor - crowded with images, lots of labels on everything, Can modern kids decipher such a complicated illustrated editorial statement? :?

Building permits up, 161 pounds of fentanyl, 90% of illegals arrested had priors. I hear that song from Sesame Street: ♫ One of these things is not like the others.♬

That cartoon is a great depiction of the crazy investigations.

I've seen many objections to the whole Mueller investigation, how it should be ended, Trump should have fired him, that kind of thing. Yet look! All Trump has done is mostly ignore it, and the longer it's gone on, the more it's blown up in the faces of Trump's opposition like a trick cigar.

You've truly outdone yourself this time, with the family album, BoB.

It's taken me days to get to a reply on this, but I've thought of it every day since you posted it.

What you went through is unjust, I deem. I know I got a few undeserved whoopin's, but I understood what they thought I had done, even if I hadn't. Like all justice, Parental Justice is best when swift and sure, but the sure part requires knowing where the boundaries are.

I'm glad our Bluebird emerged from your trials.

My family had a, um, live-in nursemaid or something for a while, after my little sister was born, and as a fine upstanding Christian woman she would never say a bad word.

She did, however, frequently employ the variant "Oh, shoot a blue bean!"

GRAB THE SOAP! :mrgreen:

Enjoyed looking through these with Milady and having her laugh heartily.

Thanks for the Hearty laughs, Pete.

Skimming the Stupid Milk

It's amusing to me to listen to traditional libertarians (like Julie Borowski) or old-fashioned liberals (like Sargon). I like them. Their best principles are practically indistinguishable from limited-government Constitutional conservatism. Quite different from the open-borders legalize-everything extremists who took over the Libertarian Party and certainly nothing like the tyrannical collectivist regressives going as Liberals. I can understand why traditional liberals and libertarians wouldn't think of calling themselves conservatives, though, if the models of conservatism are RINOs and DIABLOs.

Sliced Stupid Bananas

As usual, the irony of projection here, as MacLean showed no solidarity nor empathy with autistics. Let me see if I can re-work this to better accuracy?

“Many of the architects of so-called Progressivism seem to be what Ann Barnhardt calls "Diabolical Narcissists"—you know, people who don’t feel solidarity or empathy with others.”

I was gonna say

Earwigs: Looks like that gal is about to have the same wardrobe malfunction as the Olympic skater.

But Doug M half-way beat me to it.

It's like the Obama portraits: Every single thing I thought of to do altering those paintings, someone else, sometimes two or three someones else, had beat me to it.

It's a jungle out there in memeland.

I had a half-dozen ideas for variations on the portraits. Before 48 hours had passed, every one of them had been done by somebody. But it's how the World Wide Mind works.

At least two folks did variations on substituting a toilet for the chair.

Two I've seen turning the background into cannabis.

Couple of variations on the vines taking over / Obama fades into background.

At least two placing him in the ivy at Wrigley Field.

And two I saw that echoed that great Empty Chair meme. (One must be cautious when crossing the memes!)

The meme-weavers are just so darn fast & plentiful nowadays!

And one of Michelle that… actually, funny as it was, best not to talk about it. ;)

Meanwhile, Dr. Susan Berry at Breitbart notes that Planned Parenthood will still be receiving over half a billion dollars in taxpayer funds, thanks to congressional Republicans.

Half a billion - that oughta buy a whole lotta mammograms.
