Not Earthshattering/But, Could Have Been (If Circumstances Were Right)

From the headlines: Decorating ideas that could make one want to return to college.

A recurring dream.  I’m back at college. Can’t remember my schedule. Working towards a degree–requirements never satisfied.  Decorations wouldn’t do it for me.

Not since the Scopes Monkey Trials, have primates figured in important litigation.  Naruto, a crested macaque, celebritized after taking selfies, with a stolen camera.  A settlement reached over who had rights to the images.  Hope Naruto got a lifetime supply of bananas.

A picture of Billy the Kid, bought for two dollars, was found to be worth a cool five million.  There’s hope for yard sale junkies, collectors everywhere.

We should watch what we do and say, because aliens from other planets could be watching.  I thought only Santa Claus did that.  Could Santa Claus really be an alien?  You didn’t hear it from me.

This morning was like old times for the Retired Old Farts Dog Walker’s Club.  There were almost enough members present for a quorum.  That was, providing the members ever agreed on anything–which was rare.

 

 

 

 

 

If You Were Paying Attention This Week

Baby, baby, baby–where’s the giraffe baby?  Baby, baby, oh baby–next week, maybe? The same giraffe’s been pregnant since 2015–what?

A giant chicken is allegedly scaring folks all over the world-wide web.  Who’s afraid of the big bad rooster?  Not I, said the Little Red Hen.

The “human Ken doll” guy had a few more surgeries.  What’s a few more, when there have already been so many?

Wonder Woman’s new edition was up to her armpits in controversy.  Had she, or hadn’t she?  Couldn’t wrap my head around that one.

Some countries cared how their rivers flowed; granted them the same rights as humans.  If this was to prevent pollution–then, I’m for it.  The cynic in me wondered if they would be subjected to taxation.

Flip or Flop TV stars had more problems.  Meanwhile, it was announced which of our favorite shows would flip into next season–which ones flopped.

My favorite TV mechanic, Edd China, from Velocity’s “Wheeler Dealers” is leaving the show.  Saddest news since Jeremy Clarkson & Company left “Top Gear.”

Shaq’s world wasn’t flat.  That was just a joke.
