The new voting machines look familiar.

new voting machines

I was going to make few jokes here at the expense of the current presidential candidates, but at this point they honestly don’t need any help.


Now it’s ultimate frisbee.

The term “ultimate frisbee” is a misnomer.  Adding an exciting descriptor doesn’t really make a sport any more impressive.  If it did, everyone would be playing extreme horseshoes and ultra bocce.


Exercise routine in futility.

You may have noticed that I have only been posting one drawing a day instead of two.  With a new baby in the house my energy level and stamina feel like they are on par with the fellow in the picture above.  I’m hopeful she will develop some regular sleep patterns soon.

I think she can.  I think she can.  I think she can…


Contracting every five minutes.

My wife and I have been quite busy since the birth of  second daughter two weeks ago.  We were both caught a little off guard, because she decided to arrive fashionably early (at 35 weeks instead of the full 40).  Despite this, she was born at a strong and healthy 7 lbs 1 oz.  If she had patiently waited until her actual due date, she would have emerged on April 4th.

Easter Sunday.

You may wonder what day could be more fitting to share a birthday with than the greatest feast day of the Christian calendar – a day celebrating life, birth, and hope?

Apparently, March 4th.

It might not be Easter Sunday, but it is Senegal National Day! If you live in West Africa you are already impressed.  If you live anywhere else, that’s just the tip of the iceberg.  March 4th is also Benjamin Harrison Day AND National Grammar Day (the latter being informal only).  It USED to be the Presidential Inaguration Day – before it was changed in 1933.

Not satisfied yet?  Well, March 4th is Craig T. Nelson’s Birthday.  Yes, THAT Craig T. Nelson (remember the sitcom Coach).

Oh, wait… his birthday is APRIL 4th…

I guess he’ll share his birthday with Easter this year.


Baby teeth and asexual reproduction.

February 19, 2010

Everyone knows about the tooth fairy.  When you loose a tooth, you put it under your pillow at night and wake in the morning to find money in it’s place.  When I was young, my teeth were worth a nickel.  It was very exciting every time it occurred.  This week, a six year old told me that he received $10 for his tooth.


I’m not old.  I’m not even close to old.  Yet, that child’s $10 bill represents a 200 fold increase in tooth value from the time I was young.  I think we can conclude only one thing from this trend.

Forget stocks and bonds – invest in teeth.

Perhaps a career in professional three-legged racing is in his future?
