#GBE2: Naughty Can Be Nice

When Santa checks his list, twice, he's looking for folks who have been naughty OR nice, but can't one be both? I'm not saying being naughty is good, just that being bad gives beings super strength, agility, and strong thresholds for pain. Nice! At least that's what I see on TV. For example, take a look at the Wet Bandits, Harry and Marv.

Although these two bad boys are about as naughty as one can get, they've achieved superhuman status that keeps them going even in the direst of circumstances. Nice! After all, who else could withstand a hot iron in the face, being burnt, blown up, tripping on marbles, being struck by paint cans, bricks, and anything else Kevin thrusts their way?

But wait, these two naughties are not the first bad guys who were given superhuman abilities.

Remember Wile E. Coyote? Poor little Road Runner just wants to cruise the highways endlessly, with no place to go, but this sicko won't leave him alone. Naughty! But, being naughty has its advantages. He's fallen off cliffs, been whacked on the head with anvils, and as you see to the left, blown up by TNT. Yet like the Wet Bandits, Wile survives. Nice!

Or how about Moe? Constantly smacking one's brothers doesn't get one on the Nice List, yet these crazy brothers survived it all. Of course Santa still doesn't come to Larry, Moe, and Curly's home because he's an antisemite, but that's another post. Naughty!

So the moral of this story . . .  If you want to be protected from harm, you must be naughty

Now that's nice!

Theme Thursday: Heat

After moving to Memphis, several flocks of birds settled on the lawns around me. Why are all these birds here? I thought. Birds are supposed to fly south for the winter. Then it dawned on me, this is the south, and we're stuck with birds pooping on cars all year long. So much for mild winters. They wouldn't be bad except I love snow, and we don't see much.

Summer is another issue. Come July in Memphis, it's hot! Not upper seventies or eighties but hot. Luckily we've only hit the triple digits a few weeks this summer, so it's been a cool year; however, come August, we'll probably be there. Last school year, the kids suffered through indoor recess throughout August because it was too hot to play outside.

None-the-less, I still go for runs but leave the fur faces behind. One can get used to heat, which will be good for me in the after life. ;)

#AtoZ : The Wabbit from Warner Brothers

For W, I came close to writing a post about our former president because there is plenty of humor surrounding him; however, I chose not to upset half my reading population with my politics. So, here's a post about someone more intelligent: The Warner Brother's Wabbit.

Who does not know and love that wascally wabbit Bugs Bunny? Although I've always been one who likes to sleep in, Bugs was worth getting up early for on a Saturday morning. Not only do I love his cleverness in escaping Elmer Fudd, but his Bronx accent is the best! They just don't make cartoons like Bugs Bunny anymore. Just think of the greatness America could have achieved, or the horrors we could have avoided, if W was as smart as Bugs Bunny!


If you haven't had enough, here's another good one–short too.
