And they come with no warning,
nature loves her little surprises.
Continual crisis!

Story Bone

Semi-frequent commentator, author in his retired life, and all around cool guy Jim Wright, sends us this Bone. (cool guy = Alaskan resident, get it! Ha! Oh man, do I have to go to bed, I'm so tired)

It seems Jim and his son sat down to watch "Night at theMuseum" (which, BTW, I happen to recommend, practically the only Ben Stiller movie I own, but hey, Mikey Rooney as a crotchety old man in a gang with Dick Van Dyke and Bill Cobbs, that right there should be enough to watch it but there's also Robin Williams, forget the logical fallicies of "okay, it works for flesh, but how does that make the train go and the catapults work?") and has been joining in the fray over at the Whatever and John Scalzi's trip to the Creation Museum and thinks they're two great tastes that would taste great together.

Adam and the T-Rex go out for coconut mixed-drinks ala the Skipper and Gilligan. They play with the lambs and the lions and then go romp with the pocket-sized dinos that fit on Noah's Arc. Professor Brand(tm) Coconut Radios in a week, I say. I mean, "NatM" had some stinky ol' Egyptian tablet, heck, Yahweh's got Two Tablets. Just like Alka-Seltzer for the soul (can you tell I've been worked up by the discussions over at the Whatever, and I'm a little tired). Now, of course, when I see Charlton "Cold Dead Hands" Heston come off the mountain in that Easter Perennial, Cecil B. Demille's "The Ten Commandments", I'm going to be singing in my head, "Plop, plop, fizz, fizz, oh what-a belief it is."

edit Sorry about the double post last night, was having connection issues.

OMG, Steve, have you been smoking CRACK?!?

Greeny, about which part are you speaking?

Yeah, last night I was hitting on all cylinders last night. I become very dangerous when that happens. If I really let go when I'm stoked Dennis the Menace Miller couldn't keep up.

If you ever see me in public and I have a smirk on my face but I'm not saying anything, understand that this kind of dialog (in the post about the coconuts) is playing in my head and I don't want to offend anybody.

Hilarious. My younger son (Hell Boy) is Dennis the Menace reincarnated. Dear Lord, that means there are TWO of you!

Yeah, Steve, have you been smoking crack? What'd you get that crazy idea?

Hey Greeny, well I was refering to Dennis Miller, who used to be a stand-up comedian, then worked Saturday Night Live, then did stand-up, hand his own sit-com, disappeared, then came back as a commentor and I guess now has his own radio show as well as appearances on Bill O'Reilly's show. When I'm on, he can't keep up, 'cause after all he uses writers as well.

Jim, I don't know. Some snow covered bird told me it.
