While Strolling Thru the Park One Day… April 18, 2010

While strolling in the park at 6AM this morning, as Benny the dog performs his morning ritual, I meet a man walking his small beagle.  The man is beaming as if he stumbled upon a pot of gold somewhere in Madison Square Park.  He says to me “My dog just took the biggest crap of his life – I needed two doggie bags to pick it up.” I smile back, not knowing how to respond to this shared bit of information.  All I could come up with (after all it was only 6 in the morning) was “Nice to hear some positive headline news.” We parted ways.

It reminded me of something else that we overheard while at the Bronx Zoo this week.  We were staring at the Canada Goose nest (pictured to the left) when a group of youngish kids and their Moms came our way.  I pointed the nest out to the Moms and they were as fascinated as we were.  The kids did not seem to care.  One Mom said to the most boisterous kid ‘If you do not behave I am going to send you to public school.”  My friend and I looked at one another and cracked up.  Who knew that threatening to send a kid to public school was something that would shut a kid up – very quickly?

– In other threatening news: The percentage of Tea Baggers holding a favorable opinion of former President George W. Bush is 57%.  Does anyone really need to know more about this gang of whining, racist thugs?  For the full article about who these people really are, please read the April 15th New York Times article here.

–  In other parts of Crazy Land, hate monger Rush Limbaugh talked about the volcanic eruption that’s affecting air travel over much of Europe, saying it was “God Speaking” in response to the passage of health care.  You can’t make this crap up!

–  Jon Stewart smacks down the wackos over at Fox Noise in a segment called ‘A Farewell to Arms.’ ‘Fox Noise wants you to decide if the Nuclear Security Summit logo looks similar to the flags representing Muslim nations’.

This video just cracks me up every time I watch it:

Wait a minute, let me get this straight. Europe is being punished by God for the US passing health care? The Almighty needs to get some new glasses!

What cracked me up is the minute Cloud heard your giggling, she started barking furiously.
Maybe she misses you……?
