    But please, please remember that a puppy isn’t just for Christmas, it’s for life. Don’t give puppies as presents unless you are the adult in charge of the family you’re giving them into.

    Reminded of a song by Alison Krauss:

    “You’re an original baby, like we’ve never seen before.

    You’re an original baby: turn around and you’re lookin’ at a hundred more."

    All he needs is a cold day and a little food colouring. Spray it on, it’ll freeze and help the sculpture last.

    Reminds me of the sculpture in the original film of Rear Window: an etoilated abstract near-human figure with a large hole in the middle. The artist said: “It’s called Hunger.”

    Beaks and feet are highly thought of in Chinese cooking. But then, as I was told by those who know, “In China we eat anything with legs but a table; anything with wings but an airplane.”

    Yup, take world peace, Lard—because if the boat breaks down, the blonde will jump ship.

    This goes well with today’s (and yesterday’s) Calvin and Hobbes.

    I remember when LOTR was only read by “long haired college kids who think they know something.” (Said by someone who never read it).
