Thank you all for playing with my balls. And thank you, Jostlin' Testes Harder, for NOT :-).
Your comments were much more fun and imaginative than my original. But for those still interested in delving into the ontological/epistemological depths behind the photos and captions, here's a profound exeg… Read full post »

Reading in the NYT about the ratings travails of giant authors like James Baldwin and E.M. Forster after being consigned to the Adult bin by Amazonian midgets, I had to find out first hand what company their books were keeping.

Yesterday at 5:00 PM, regular as clockwork, Caruso Wegie posted another in the series of the exquisitely crafted, edgy, funny and highly original BATZ cartoons. This one was even better than usual because it included a clip of the templates the Walt Disney studios used for their toons, and provided t… Read full post »

Ignore the sensation-seeking headlines: "Shock and Awe," "$1.75 trillion Tax Hike." Piffle. Penned by people who haven't even peeked at the Fiscal Year 2010 Federal Budget. It is a thing of beauty, crafted and drafted by economists with nous (instead of the ideological hacks of the Bush years). It… Read full post »
Based on the transcripts of President Obama's magisterial Speech to Congress and Piyush "Bobby" Jindal's umm, response, your devoted Dawg provides the following hermeneutic analysis, without editorial comment.

"Know thyself" was, of course, the famous dictum of the Delphic Oracle (and for all you neo-classicists, the Oracle in The Matrix). "Know thy posts" is the starter's call to the horses at Epsom (those Brits are so classical, as are their horses). And "Know thy editors" is apparently Ruper… Read full post »
Frankenstein was a doctor. And he created a monster. One reading of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus is that the monster he created was himself. Any resemblance to the duelin' docs on OS is purely intentional.

Bolt and bar the shutter,
For the foul winds blow:
