Hey, you're blogging again! Good story, and an important lesson: intelligence in animals seems inversely proportional to tastiness. No one tried to eat Stephen Hawking.

If it makes you feel any better, I'm wearing my new reading glasses right now. Hang in there! The first 49ers preseason game is only 3 weeks away. Now I'm off to the Porsche dealership.

Your beer purchase reminds me of an episode of The Simpsons, in which police chief Wiggum is using a cassette recorder while interrogating Bart. The boy notices the cassette and says, "Hootie and the Blowfish?" Chief Wiggum answers, "Yeah, it was cheaper than blank tape." I'm guessing Chas didn't drink the beer.

Ha! I don't know who the Korean guy is. But I'll bet he doesn't have enough business experience.
The University of South Florida Bulls called. They want their motto back!

Sidewalk? What sidewalk? Did you people move to the big city (Orland)? That would explain why the kids are turning to violent crime.

Hilarious! Strange, though - I never had much use for a Shark Attack Barbie. "Black Plague Ken" was my go-to toy.

Don't feel bad. I speak a small, insular Spanish. Mmmm . . . bife con pollo . . .

When I drove past the Occupy Portland encampment the other day, I thought it smelled like mouse poop and regret.

Hey, no fair! I used to have to bring in the cows to receive that kind of cash. 'Course, I probably had hair in my eyes at the time... ...and a stinky diaper, maybe.

I don't even know what the heck she was talking about, but I'm still mad at her. You need to go back to reading them Dr. Seuss.

You should open a Korean restaurant. Give it a catchy name like "Park & Choo."

Will the kids get to witness Leroy's castration? Grandpa might need someone to hold the utensils for him.

Shmaybe there was an electrical storm in the area . . .

I never thought of our father as any kind of fairy, but you may be onto something. And your story is disturbingly reminiscent of my description of the old shoes in my closet, for which I was teased mercilessly. Where's the Justice Fairy?

Yeah, I'm sure that sort of thing is heard daily on chicken farms: "I've got a small cock. Wanna pullet?" Oh, and you described Dad perfectly (no, not the small cock thing, although how would I know) with the line "You should want one." He must've gotten it from Mormor, somehow: "You should want tomatoes and tamale pie."

Uh oh. Are some of the e-mail conversations that occur among you, Bocci, and me going to end up here? Do I even want to know how I will be identified in such a cartoon?

So, does Baloney Girl need a new nickname? And where in the world does one get half a dozen bacon suits? Makes me wonder what Frances & Co. will come up with for next year.

This reminds me of what she told me three years ago: "You have a much bigger brain than I thought you had." You walk away wondering whether she had complimented or insulted you.

Someone should send this to Secretary Gates - I'll bet he'd find it amusing. The V.P. probably wouldn't.

I guess it is unusual. The waistband of my hiking pants is a bit scratchy, so I tuck in my shirt for comfort. Please tell Bocci that at least I CAN tuck in my shirt...

Good review! I can't Tweet, and I can't "like" or "follow" or "wink at" it on Facebook or Myspace or Stumble or Adult Friendfinder or Del.i.cio.us or LinkedIn. I'll have the Pony Express hand-deliver my comments as soon as the Benedictine scribes get their next shipment of papyrus. : ) Oh - and if this food helps with olfactory offenses, have you considered slipping some in with Dad's food?
Wow, that IS a small calf! They'll have to feed her a lot to ensure she's ready for the 2012 barbecue season. : )
