Normally I post some funny graphics,but today I thought I’d post some things I’ve gleaned from Facebook and around the web.

Why? I just feel like it. I hope you enjoy it.

This is a shot of the Milky Way from Boulder Junction,Wis. I’ve fished this area north of the Chippewa Flowage. You would be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful landscape. If you get up there,ask a local where the nearest Paul Bunyan Restaurant is. You won’t regret it.

    EPA Told Employees To Stop Pooping In The Hallway

    Hows this for a segue from the sublime to the ridiculous?
    Things apparently got so bad, the agency “consulted” with workplace violence expert John Nicoletti, who — not surprisingly — said poop in the hallways was an office health and safety risk. Nicoletti said such actions were dangerous and those responsible would “probably escalate” their feces plans.

      Unbelievable. Time for the hidden cameras and public humiliation, followed by termination from that job and any other federal position.

    Phil Collins donates his Alamo collection to spot of its Genesis
    Grammy-award winning pop star Phil Collins said on Thursday his music wealth helped him satisfy a boyhood fascination with the Alamo and he would donate his extensive collection of artifacts from the 1836 battle for a museum at the Texas shrine.
    He looks like a law professor….or an ex-felon.

    Vet Claims Cracker Barrel Fired Him For Giving Muffin To Needy Person
    A gesture of kindness cost a 73-year-old veteran his job at a Venice Cracker Barrel, reports WWSB-TV.

    Joe Koblenzer has been working for three years as greeter for the restaurant. “It’s a fun job; a job really suited to me,” he told the station.

    Proof once again that no good deed goes unpunished.

      I’m guessing more is going on here. We know a teen who inadvertently outed her boss’ adultery and the boss paid her back by pressing charges for a cola she “stole.” The teen was off duty, but helping a new worker learn the job and him ring up a snack.

      It’s one of those convenience stores where there’s SO much point of sale crap … you know, bags of chips and such … that it’s really easy for something to be out of view of the register. Anyway, teen gets to our house, where she was living at the time, which was 1/4 mile from the store, realizes the cola wasn’t on her tab and walked right back down to pay for it.

      The cops had already been called and were forced to fill out all the paperwork for a “stolen” cola. The manager knew perfectly well the kid lived with us. She had her employee contact numbers! She didn’t want to get the money. She wanted to punish the kid.

      The teen’s real “crime” had been working on a night when the boss told her husband she was working, then going off from the store with her lover. The kid didn’t know the lover wasn’t the husband or that the man who called looking for the boss was her husband. She just said, “No, she isn’t working tonight. She was here for a while, but then she left with her husband.”

      The boss never had to appear in court. Dearest had to take the teen in FOUR TIMES – he missed work, she missed school, the court-appointed attorney got paid for showing up again and again, the judge waste his time … because the DA couldn’t be bothered to either drop the charges or show up himself! The fourth time, the judge just said enough and called the whole charade off.

      If that guy did give a muffin away, he should’ve paid for it. If he forgot, the boss should’ve docked his pay. You just don’t fire somebody for something like that unless you need an excuse. Maybe the boss has a bitchy wife with an idiot nephew who needs a job.

      I just love them. Back when I used to watch movies, theirs were among my favorites. I love Margret Dumont, too. This looks like clips from a lot of different ones.


    • I love the Marx Brothers! When I was a kid my brothers and I used to watch their movies on TV and we’d laugh until we ached all over from laughing.

    Loved the images at the start, Pete. The one of the lady with her big girl panties reminded me that earlier this week I was listening to our local talk radio while I was working outside. The stupid host was going on and on for about a half hour, with many people calling in, about the size 6X underwear the govt. needed for the new “immigrants.” None of them ever seemed to realize 6X is a children’s size! As best as I could tell the entire half hour they thought they were talking about somebody with a 72 inch waist!
