There’s no Memes That Made Me Laugh post this week, as my travels precluded gathering them from here and there as I normally do. The regular Memes post will return next Monday. Let’s start out the week with a smile. Task & Purpose is a military-oriented Web site that often has useful, interesting articles. … Continue reading Picking up the pieces of our daily routine
Looks like Ireland is still crazy. Doctors in Ireland had to remove 50 AA and other “cylindrical” batteries from the body of a 66-year-old woman who had swallowed them all on purpose, a recent article in the Irish Medical Journal says. When doctors at St. Vincent’s University Hospital in Dublin first examined the woman,… Continue reading I guess that’s one way for doctors to stay current…
I had to laugh at this take on the evacuation of the Titanic, if it happened today. I can’t embed it here, but follow the link below to see it on YouTube.

Stephan Pastis does it again. Click the image to be taken to a larger version at the “Pearls Before Swine” Web page. How does he manage to so often put his finger on the zeitgeist of our current messy existence? However he gets it right, I’m glad he does! We need something to laugh… Continue reading I’ve had days like that…
Courtesy of Martin van Creveld’s blog, I discovered an article with that title published in 2000. It made me laugh out loud, both for the incongruity of its title (after all, the Marines are known for breaking things and killing people, neither of which requires exceptional sensitivity!) and for its humor. Here’s an excerpt.… Continue reading “Confessions of a Marine Corps sensitivity trainer”
… that I’ve mentioned in several posts, most recently yesterday, Stephan Pastis offers this consolation (?). Click the image to be taken to a larger version at the Pearls Before Swine Web page. Yep. That’ll do it! Peter
I had to laugh at the headline in this Times of India report. Woman bobbitises live-in partner for trying to rape minor daughter in UP’s Lakhimpur Kheri A 36-year-old woman allegedly chopped off her live-in partner’s genitals after he attempted to rape her 14-year-old daughter … Disclosing the sequence of events, the woman said,… Continue reading Now there’s an interesting term – “bobbitises”…
I laughed out loud while reading an account of an innocent academic, thrust headlong into the sturm und drang of theoretical debate over Edgar Allan Poe‘s horror stories and whether they’re racist or not. It’s a series of screenshots captured by an Imgur user, so I can’t transcribe them all here; you’ll have to click… Continue reading “BUT WHAT ABOUT THE ORANGUTAN?”
