Here are some rather, ummmmm… unusual people caught by a camera. Now, keep in mind, when people dress in highly “creative” outfits, it is because they want to the attention and/or to have fun. So… give ‘em some attention. Then there are others who are most definitely a one-of-a-kind individual. WTF…..
Sad news today, so please join me in remembering yet another great icon of the entertainment community. The Pillsbury Dough Boy died yesterday of a yeast infection and traumatic complications from repeatedly being poked in his belly during his lifetime. The veteran Pillsbury spokesman was 71. Dough Boy is survived by his wife, Play Dough; three children, John Dough, Jane Dough, and Dill Dough; plus they also had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart. Services were held yesterday at 350 for about 20 minutes.
His wisdom never stopped when he was alive, and it will never stop now that he has passed. You are missed. RIP George Carlin. May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008
When an athlete is caught up in the moment, the last thing they think about is the look on their face. Lucky for them, cameras are always on the sidelines ready to take a photo to capture that moment for the athlete.
Here are some of the better moments forever caught and frozen in time.
To all the youngsters out there, born in the 80′s and after….
Anyone who was born in the 50′s, 60′s and 70′s… We are the last generation who played in the street. We are the 1st who played video games, the last to record songs off the radio on a cassette tape. We walked over a mile with no worries of being taken. We learned how to program the VCR before anyone else. We played from Atari to Nintendo. We are the generation of Tom and Jerry, Looney Toons, and Captain Kangaroo. We traveled in cars without seat belts or air bags; lived without cell phones. We did not have flat screen TVs or surround sound – in fact, we had to get up and walk over to the TV to change the station. iPods, the internet, computers, Facebook and Twitter were inconceivable. But nevertheless – WE HAD A GREAT TIME!!
Barbie… does Ken know this side of you?

Is your blog a bit boring? No one commenting? Here is a cartoon which will help liven up your comment fields should you follow these very simple instructions. I know I have seen it work on many other sites – especially YouTube.
This first video is an adorable French Bulldog pup, all dressed in his (or hers?) Christmas sweater. “Frenchie” here surprises his people by saying, “I love you.” LOL… apparently the original has become viral as this was featured on the national news this morning. This one is an upload by “Petsami” and I cannot find the original. BTW… I HATE Petsami’s logo… the cat face with the crossed bones beneath it. Looks like a “death” or “poison” label to me. Anyway, just had to point that out – it’s been bugging me since I subbed their channel.
Woo-hoo!! Friday 5 PM has passed. It is officially the weekend for many of us. Regardless of whether or not you are off for the weekend, or going to work tonight, tomorrow, whenever, we ALL need to smile and laugh on a daily basis. So here is my contribution for today.
Posted by a friend on mine on Facebook, here we have a photo of the 1908 Gold Medalist in Levitation. Levitation was one of the most sought after gold medals for many decades. However, it began fading out shortly after 1940 – the opening of the first McDonalds, which was the Dick and Mac McDonald Bar-B-Q restaurant in San Bernardino CA.
The athletes of the sport of Levitation fought to keep it alive, but sadly the ability to levitate quickly became extinct after 1948. This has been correlated to the point in time when McDonald’s Bar-B-Q changed to McDonalds Famous Hamburgers and reduced their menu to nine items, including the 15-cent hamburger. The fat intake from these sandwiches, as well as from the rapidly growing variety of fast food restaurants all over the world, was simply too much on the human body.
YouTube is taking down these videos as quickly as they’re going up, but I found a site that has loaded it on their own server, so hopefully you will still be able to watch Mr. Bean’s appearance as a keyboard player at the 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremony.
Watch as he plays “the note” on the keyboard for the theme song from Chariots of Fire. Then he dreamily joins the group of men from the scene in the movie where they are running down the beach. Watch for Mr. Bean’s surprise finish!
Time to post these animated gif’s. They’ve been in my folder collecting and there’s enough now – and it’s time to clean out my blogging folder. Hope you enjoy! There are some cuties.
Okay, I know there are some VERY creative people out there. I must have laughed for a straight ten minutes when I saw this photo – the happy, HAPPY look on the seal’s face. Alas… captioning is NOT my forte. So let’s hear it! Give me one, give me a dozen – don’t be shy. There are no wrong answers. Then I will create and post them all like I did for the “Dog and Cat… Caught in the Act!” image.
Sorry, but I just cannot help myself. Now, everyone all groan at the same time….
July 22nd (international numeric date is 22/7/year) is Pi Approximation Day and celebrates the discovery of the calculation of the Math Symbol Pi – which is approximately calculated at 22/7 (22 divided by 7).
Peter Kevin Connell from Today in Heritage History warns:
“Please be courteous driving today and try to avoid all the International Mathematician Parades. Most mathematician marchers generally have problems negotiating traffic while dressed in Rhombus and Trapezoid costumes.”
Time to let the problems, the job, the kids, whatever may be bringing you stress… it is time to let those things go away for a while. Humor is an excellent medicine for most situations… and for no situation in particular.
Enjoy the Sunday Funnies dated today, July 22nd, 2012.
My brain is still hurting after watching this animated video featuring a new products from Amazon called “Amazon Yesterday Shipping.” Do you recall when you saw The Terminator for the first time? If you were like me and many of my friends, we found ourselves lost in the frequent discussion of time travel and how going back in time will greatly alter the future, then returning to the future to see what changes have occurred. Yeah, my brain is hurting, too.
These are some very strange products sold around the world. Not sure why some of them exist – but they do, and they’re for sale. Check ‘em out….
I am willing to bet that this camel had no idea he (she?) is an Illusionist. For the first thirty seconds of this video, you could swear this camel has no head. One hump, yes, but no head.
Then the secret is revealed….
Magic camel has no head
Another Friday the 13th has arrived, the third and last one this year. Did you know that exactly 13 weeks ago was a Friday, April 13? And that exactly 13 weeks before that was a Friday, January 13? The fact is that any leap year starting with a Sunday will have a Friday the 13th in January, April and July.
Three Friday the 13ths also happen in any non-leap year that starts on a Thursday. In that case, the Friday the 13ths come in February, March and November.
The year 2009 was the last time we had three non-leap-year Friday the 13ths. The next time will be the year 2015. Notice each of those years is three years before and after 2012.
Still my favorite photo…
Here are some photos which due to the angle and “perfect” timing of snapping the camera, the image just doesn’t look like what it should be. Illusional and hilarious. My favorite is still the one that went viral a few months back of a party scene featuring two women where the arm from the woman in front gives the illusion that her friend immediately behind her is naked. The thumbnail to the right. The full size if in the post further down.
Just when I thought I could no longer be surprised by the oddball contests these days, along comes The Humpy Awards!
Dogs enter into the ring, are offered a leg, and do what nature tells them to do – no, not hike their leg, but hump away.
Dogs are voted on such items as mount, speed, style, stamina, and dismount.
This came across Facebook. Too cute not to share with everyone.
Do NOT attempt capture because you’ll totally screw with the space/time continuum, bro.
Some more cheesy humor about the CERN’s recent discovery of the Higgs boson, aka “The God Particle.”
