Another Sunday morning rolls around and here I am, still not entirely free of my cough, but soldiering on. Eventually I’ll catch up with all the posts I’ve missed, but until then, you’ve got this. And Flippin’ at some point this week, I hope. I’ve taken so long I think Burgas has forgotten he did his part already! My attention is even more divided than usual!
Sunday Morning Item! I had this one last week but didn’t use it for some reason, even though the key words of “Clown-themed Iron Maiden tribute band” and “multi-million dollar drug bust” should have put it to the top of my list.
Sunday Morning Item! Scientists are puzzled that butterfly tongues seem to predate flowers, and are wondering what they were there for. Obviously, it was for butterfly kisses….
Sunday Morning Item! The “best” thing about the President’s comments earlier in the week was that cable news had the word “shithole” onscreen for hours at a time. And then Rachel Maddow had to blushingly say the word herself once in order to “properly report” on things. (I’m pretty sure Lawrence O’Donnell was more than happy to say the word 😉 ) If you don’t have hours to wait for it, she says it at 14:47 in the video here (took her long enough!). Lawrence says it at 4:35 in, 3 times in the video below that.
Sunday Morning Item! Oddly enough, after I’d just mentioned this to my mom when the two senators appeared on Morning Joe together, this was the Final Jeopardy that same night. I swear to you, I did indeed make the anagrams comment! (question/answer image taken from J! Archive.)
Sunday Morning Item! The New York Post had a headline this week about “Why JFK Went to Hell”, and it took me a bit to realize they meant the airport and not the President….
Sunday Morning Item! I don’t really care that much about Conan, even though the book was a big influence on Cerebus (clever self-promotion…), but I found it interesting that Marvel announced they were getting the license again nearly a year before they’re set to use it. I guess that’s why Dark Horse has been putting out the Omnibus collections, knowing they weren’t doing more with the character but wanting to still make some money off it, but I wonder if the Robert E. Howard people pressured them to not do any more with him since they wanted Marvel to take him on, or if them not doing much led REH and/or Marvel to start talking. And is he going to be integrated into the Marvel Universe, like in this picture? How about the movie universe? Maybe a world Thanos is attacking has a barbarian culture on it still?
Sunday Morning Item! From a newspaper semi-local to me:
Sunday Morning Item! Pants Knife! (Ok, that came from a conversation we were having behind the scenes here. Maybe I’ll mention it again when the context is revealed. For now, enjoy as is!)
Sunday Morning Item! The Pope’s a pervo!
See you next week when another Sunday morning rolls around!
