AN AMUSING & INTERESTING POST (TO ME, ANYWAY)

A cartoon for the people:












How's the weather where you are?



"I read somewhere that 77 per cent of all the mentally ill live
in poverty. Actually, I'm more intrigued by the 23 per cent who
are apparently doing quite well for themselves."
- Emo Philips




These paintings on hands are the work of Guido Daniele.  They fascinate me:


What artists do if given wire & household objects & too much time on their hands!:

You say tomato, I say tomahto.  You say potato, I say zombies

Fruit with life experience

Zombies are nuts about brains--cannibals

Modest pear

Literary interpretations

Poor little chick

When spoons go bad

Going for a walk

Burning the candle at both ends

Aaarghh!

Insect wars

Sea monster

No comment

Maybe this will help next time you're pulled over for a ticket:

A police officer pulls a guy over for speeding and has the
following exchange:

Officer: May I see your driver's license?

Driver: I don't have one. I had it suspended when I got my 5th
DWI.

Officer: May I see the owner's card for this vehicle?

Driver: It's not my car. I stole it.

Officer: The car is stolen?

Driver: That's right. But come to think of it, I think I saw the
owner's card in the glove box when I was putting my gun in there.

Officer: There's a gun in the glove box?

Driver: Yes sir. That's where I put it after I shot and killed
the woman who owns this car and stuffed her in the trunk.

Officer: There's a BODY in the TRUNK?!?!?

Driver: Yes, sir.

Hearing this, the officer immediately called his supervisor. The
car was quickly surrounded by police, and the supervisor
approached the driver to handle the tense situation:

SGT: Sir, can I see your license?

Driver: Sure. Here it is.

It was valid.

SGT: Who's car is this?

Driver: It's mine, officer. Here's the owner' card.

SGT: Could you slowly open your glove box so I can see if there's
a gun in it?

Driver: Yes, sir, but there's no gun in it.

Sure enough, there was nothing in the glove box.

SGT: Would you mind opening your trunk? I was told you said
there's a body in it.

Driver: No problem.

Trunk is opened; no body.

SGT: I don't understand it. The officer who stopped you said you
told him you didn't have a license, stole the car, had a gun in
the glove box, and that there was a dead body in the trunk.

Driver: Really? I'll bet that lying son-of-bitch told you I was
speeding, too.

I sometimes worry that I will miss putting something in my post, sort of like him.  I think I can quit worrying:

  4. The pop art is really interesting. The hand paintings exquisite. I wouldn't wash my hands but then I'd have to stay indoors too...germaphobic. We eat chickens and eggs every day but the little egg one got to me.

  6. Dear Fishducky, I've seen that hand-art before but it never fails to amaze me, especially the giraffe and the bird taking flight. Thanks for sharing. Peace.

  7. I love the story about the guy who's speeding. By the way, I feel I have to mention that I have never gotten a ticket, but I did get a warning once.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. Really--you only got a warning after you mentioned the body in the trunk?

    2. The body was Dr. X's. Everyone understood why I stuffed him in the trunk.

  12. Amusing and interesting to me too! Thanks.

    I'm always amazed at the time and effort spent by creatives on projects which have no potential for bringing home a paycheck (said while I wait for the paint to dry on a picture I'll probably never sell).
