Every once in a while I stumble across something on the Web that reminds me of something that I had completely forgotten, like these Betsy McCall Paper Dolls.

For those who didn’t understand my Friday post Spring, Pleez? I used the fractured syntax from Lolcat graphics occasionally found on the Internet in my photo. The Wikipedia article on Lolcats has a history of the genre. The I Can Has Cheezburger? site has examples.

I’ve never quite understood why LOL cats use such fractured syntax. I’ve always felt that if cats would deign to speak to us lowly human beings they would use the snooty accents once common to BBC announcers, with impeccable grammar.

Economist Jokes

A mathematician, an accountant and an economist apply for the same job.

The interviewer calls in the mathematician and asks “What do two plus two equal?” The mathematician replies “Four.” The interviewer asks “Four, exactly?” The mathematician looks at the interviewer incredulously and says “Yes, four, exactly.”

Then the interviewer calls in the accountant and asks the same question “What do two plus two equal?” The accountant says “On average, four - give or take ten percent, but on average, four.”

Then the interviewer calls in the economist and poses the same question “What do two plus two equal?” The economist gets up, locks the door, closes the shade, sits down next to the interviewer and says “What do you want it to equal?”

The economist got the job.

Having done my share of tech support, both formally and informally, I am afraid I can really relate to this video. (via Smart Bitches, Trashy Books.)

The little Yorkie at I Do Dog Tricks obeys me much better than my dogs do. And right now there is a mare (Magic) screaming because I took her Best Friend Forever (Sassy) home this morning. I hope she quits by the time I go to bed. Updated 8/2 to add Magic seems to have adjusted to just being turned out with Rags. And it makes feeding time go more easily, since they both get the same amount of horse chow.

I found this at Ugly Mailbox.com

A nursery school teacher was delivering a station wagon full of kids home one day when a fire engine with lights flashing and a wailing siren at full blast zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat next to the driver of the fire engine was a Dalmatian. The children, never having seen a dog in a fire engine before, started to discuss what the dog might be for.

“They use him to keep crowds back,” said one youngster.

“No,” said another, “he’s just for good luck.”

Several more ideas were put forward and an animated discussion soon ensued when a little girl who had sat quietly throughout the discussion and deep in thought finally brought the argument to a close…

“They use the dog,” she said firmly, “to find the fire hydrant.”

The West Virginia Surf Report (isn’t West Virginia landlocked?) has a photo-report on Fast Food: Ads vs. Reality. The food is the ads looks much better than the Real Thing, but it also looks as though you could break your teeth on it.
