Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



Oh, The You In Our

I wrote this for one of my relatives. He owns a piece of property far away from where he lives but somewhat close to his ex-father-in-law. His ex-wife was visiting and sent him a text mesage about the far away property, complaining about what the neighbors were doing to some trees on "our" property, but interestingly after the divorce she is no longer a legal owner.

I told him, "You can say: there is the letter U in the word y-o-u and there is the letter U in the word o-u-r, but there is no Y-o-u in this o-u-r'"

Something Different: What are the people of Iran protesting about now? ... The price of chicken

Something Oriental: Torch Festival

There is a Torch Festival in Butuo County in Sichuan Province, China this week. There are sheep and bull fighting, beauty contests, and horse racing. 

I am not eXactly sure who the contestants are in these events, it might be people versus sheep, or sheep versus bulls, or people and sheep versus bulls, etc, just not sure. 

Now, a beauty contest while horse racing simultaneously being pursued by angry sheep would be interesting, especiaLLy if the judges were buLLs. 

"Baaa", "Mooo", and the visiting Russian ice skating contest judge in the audience secretly and silently gives everyone a low score.

Not the tea in China?

Marianne: Even in Chinese phoneticaLLy there isn't a T (Zhōngguó), but at least with Chinese characters there appear to be embedded T shapes 中国 in lots of places, both as a t and a T.

Shelly: I try. Sometimes his phone caLLs are productive, I should answer them more often (????), no, probably not.

Marianne: Ah, that eXplains why China thinks it needs Tibet, which is 40% T's.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

Because Iran

HAH HAH HAH HHAH HHAH AH HAH ha hah hh ah ah hah hah ah ah hah hahah hah ah hahhah ahh ..........ha

Do they do the chicken crossing the road joke in the USA?

esbboston said...

Rob: hahahahahahahehehahahahaho

Yes Rob, not only do we do the Wide The Chiggin Across Duh Rude Question Mark joke riddle, we constantly improve and perfect it.

Why did the chicken cross the roads? To make an intersection.

How did the drunk civil engineer chicken cross the roads without actuaLLy having them touch? He made an overpass.

I am not sure what they caLL an overpass in the UK. I would ask a chicken, but they have aLL moved across the street. Why? Because they found out what I eat as a carnivore as my main meat.

Rob Z Tobor said...

Yo Mr ESB An overpass in the UK would be a flyover or a bridge, however an underpass is an underpass or a tunnel.

I don't know if you have noticed the mass of blogging awards doing the rounds. I have had a think about this and have created a Diploma for members of the RATs(Radical Abstract thinkers) to receive and if they so desire give to anyone they feel might be slightly amused by such a thing.

It is a little fuzzy I will try and sort that one day, maybe. So I am awarding you as a member of RATs the very first diploma to do with as you so desire. Just copy and paste from my blog or go YUCK and ignore it, I will not mind in the slightest..... Us RATs are very chilled

Rob: My first badge!!! I tried to hook it into my blogger profile, but I kept getting error messages. But I am on my iPad at the moment and it does a lousy job interacting with that part of Blogger, configuring, so I will have to try again later when I get access to a real PC. Yea, a RATs Badge!

Rob: Yea! It finaLLy started appearing on my web page!
