Okay, if they’re breaking stones, what the heck are they using to break them? That’s why e1 assumed it was a golfer. Weren’t sledgehammers invented, yet? The mystery goes on.
Well, between the rough sketch and the painting, guess the dog lost out.
Sounds more like a Mourning Dove. Pidgeons only coo.
Our family doctor when I was a child did exactly that. He would even interrupt your exam to stub out one cigarette and light up another one. Ah, the “good ol’ days”.
See Birdbrains today for another Acme reference.
I take it Mr. Garcia is on vacation, after this has been up for 6 days.
It’s good to see the Acme cartoon props company is still in business, after Wiley Coyote’s bankruptcy.
Jackie Kennedy related that JFK said to her and his brother Bobby, “Oh, God, can you ever imagine what would happen to the country if Lyndon was president?” Just a heartbeat away, folks.
There is. The practice is called ‘spoofing’, and the numbers are nearly untraceable, but the FTC can do it. Robocalls are also illegal, period. You can file a complaint with the FTC at the DoNotCall Registry website, which is quick and easy. I used to do this every time I received a call in violation of the Do Not Call Act. That was until I learned that they receive an average of 12,000 complaints PER DAY. About the same time I learned of the ‘spoofing’ practice. Encouragingly, the FTC began moving against some of the worst DNC violators about three years ago, fining some as much as $5,000 per call (and some were making over 50,000 calls per day). A few went out of business, but most went underground, and now use spoofing exclusively. My best advise – change your number, and register it immediately with both the Federal and State DNC Registry. We moved inter-state last year and did this, and have not received a single telemarketing call since. BTW, all calls from charities and politicians are exempt from the law (go figure).
Or, you can just save your favorite comics as individual links in your Bookmarks (or Favs), like me. It’s a little tricky at first, but works well, and you don’t have to sign in to read the comments, just to reply, and you still don’t get the annoying home page.
