SPEAKING OF HAMSTERS
Here's a productivity enhamster. This blog cannot figure out how to line the hamster up with the pillow, so our hamsters keep splatting to the ground. This is fine with us.

Here's another one. This blog is way too lazy to register, but we have the basic elements of the story, which happen to be the three basic elements of a classical Greek tragedy: (1) A snake; (2) A toilet; (3) Canada.

READING RECORD UPDATE
I'm back from Orlando, where Ridley and I went yesterday to join with Florida middle-school students in trying to break a world reading record. We also got to talk to some students and mentor them about writing. In this photo, I am explaining the correct use of the semicolon, and Ridley is demonstrating how writers should protect themselves if they encounter literary critics.

WE SEE THAT THE BLOG HAS FOUND TIME IN HIS BUSY SCHEDULE TO BLOG ABOUT TOILETS AND EXPLODING COWS
And he and Ridley got a few minutes of reading in, with important men wearing suits:
Meanwhile, the s.b. observed the mayor warming up the crowd in Cooper City:

A CALL TO ACTION
This blog is shocked, shocked, to learn (thanks to Claire Martin) that the Wikipedia entry on Exploding Cow is being considered for deletion. Is that wise? Do we really want our children, and our children's children (assuming our children have children, which they better not) to be deprived of reliable information about this topic, so that they have to learn about it on the street, the way we did? This blog thinks not. This blog is calling on everyone reading this blog to do whatever it is that needs to be done. As
Abraham Lincoln Albert Einstein Raymond Burr a great man once said, "All that it takes for evil to triumph is for good people to sit around on their butts doing nothing when the Wikipedia Exploding Cow entry is being considered for deletion."
UPDATE: Wow, Wikipedia is fast. This blog's position on the Exploding Cow deletion issue has already been noted. We think the US Tax Code should be written by Wikipedia.

"Governor Bush announced that our middle school students will also move forward to break a reading record through Guinness World Records™ entitled Most People Reading Aloud Simultaneously at Multiple Locations. The record breaking event is scheduled for 11:00 am EDT on Thursday, September 28, 2006. Students will read an excerpt from Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson."
