I've just returned from a trip for coffee and a stop at the Farmer's Market, requiring a drive through our beautiful metropolis with its crumbling students streets, and this is still the dumbest thing I've seen all day.

'Eric Buss displays his crazy new invention, the Bubble Wrap Bike'


The wheels on the Buss go Pop Pop Pop . . . !

We had an Eng. Lang. teacher at our school (Mr."Slug" Leach) who'd whack across the back of the head with a ruler any 'tongue-out-when-you're-concentrating-on something' poor unfortunates he spotted while prowling the classroom during essay-writing time. How in the name of all that's holy did it end up being my fave subject?

An idle mind is the biking enthusiast's playground.

I know a proud vereran of Hempfest when I see one.

Which did he run out of: playing cards or clothes pins?

Jan - were you read to as a child? I have a theory that kids whose parents read to them and -- here's the key part -- made it almost a reward, certainly a pleasant thing, anyway -- not only learn to read on their own more quickly, but also like it more. And a subset of those people discover that writing is almost as much fun. Anyway, that's my theory. It is mine and I own it and what it is, too.

Oh, and if what you were being read happened to be drawn from the classics of humor (Pogo, Mark Twain, Thurber, et al), I believe there's a strong correlation with a penchant for commenting on humor blogs in later life.
