Drive-Bys

Sometimes I get the damnedest ear worms. Since 5:00 p.m. yesterday, this old cartoon theme song has been stuck in my head:



Where in the world does this come from???

And, of course, that brought up a link to a cartoon with some of the most annoying character voices of all times:



My brain hurts now.

I love reading the blogs linked to Grand Rounds, because every once in a while you find a gem like this:
When reading through these research papers, it is quickly apparent that some of these studies were a whole lot more fun than others.

If I lived in Inver Grove Heights, I know I'd be pissed.

The interval since Chicago's last 70-degree high on October 21 continues to widen. It's been 171 days since the warm- weather benchmark was achieved.

This is just about the stupidest thing I've heard in a long time. I'd have told the neighbor to stick it, gone to court to fight the ticket, and refused to give up my delegate seat.

I guess that makes my pal LL a racist for referring to her kids as "Big Monkey" and "Little Monkey," too. (Ha! Not likely.)

This whole political correctness thing has gone way too far overboard -- and only seems to apply native-born caucasian Americans. Enough already!
