How the bear got onto the bicycle, I’ll never know.
Marx, Groucho: “I once shot an elephant in my pajamas.”
I am chagrined to see that this is my first ever Groucho reference here at Collateral Damage. I apologize to my readers and promise to do better in the future.
Walt Kelly’s birthday was last month and I forgot to mention it. Again, my apologies. Why is it this book title never goes out of date?

What are they going to do, set up ursine telemarketing centers? Send pollsters around to their caves when they’re hibernating?
Maybe they’ll just charge them $4+ a gallon for gas.
I’m not much of an outdoorsman, to understate the case wildly, but I was under the impression that if you annoyed a bear it’s not the bear who will have the problem.
Actually I’ve always thought of him as wooden.
Couldn’t be worse than the one they’ve got.
Sadly for Mr. Brown and happily for anyone with a sense of humor the truth is even funnier.
Embattled Prime Minister Gordon Brown faces more potential poll humiliation — as Madame Tussauds waxwork museum said Tuesday opened a vote on whether they should bother making a model of him.
Quick, name an English-speaking country that actually likes its leader. … Hmmm, I’m stumped too. Maybe Canadia? They speak English, don’t they?
Some leaders are actually seeing their wax popularity waxing and not waning.
The St. Petersburg Wax Museum says the public is not content with its small model of Dmitry Medvedev, Russia’s newly installed ventriloquist-dummy-in-chief. Apparently the people want a three-dimensional version. Should this come to pass, it will mean the museum’s version has more depth than the person it is based on.
Must be an interesting moment for the cultists. What happens if they die before doomsday?
Tom Lehrer: “I feel like a Christian Scientist with appendicitis.”
Doomsday cult calls credit cards satanic” Y’know, they’re not as crazy as I thought they were.
“The fact that it’s silly doesn’t mean that it’s not serious.”– Berrien, MI, Trial Court Judge Scott Schofield sentencing Bobby Bolen to time served and 1 year of probation for assaulting two people.
The assault happened after Bolen helped himself to some pickles in an Jody Lee’s refrigerator. According to police, Lee then ” told Bolen he couldn’t afford to feed everyone and not to eat his pickles.”
Later, Bolen barged back into the house and got into an argument with Lee. Lee told police Bolen slammed him down on the couch and threw two large pickles at him and said, “Here’s your damn pickles.”
Another person at the scene was also assaulted. Defense attorney Robert Lutz said alcohol appeared to be at the root of Bolen’s problems.
Personally, I blame the pickles.
Someone get the brand of that pickle. “Pickles worth fighting over.” Now that’s a slogan.
