Having A Really, Really Bad Day

Shayne sent us this version of a tale that combines equal portions of pathos and justice.

There I was sitting at the bar staring at my drink when a large, trouble-making biker steps up next to me, grabs my drink and gulps it down in one swig.

“Well, whatcha’ gonna do about it?” he says, menacingly, as I burst into tears.

“Come on, man,” the biker says, “I didn’t think you’d CRY. I can’t stand to see a man crying.”… Read the rest...

Let Me Be Your POSSLQ!

There is still lots of material in the archives. Lowrie sent this a couple of years ago. It’s an old classic that is long overdue.

The trouble with not sleeping well is the totally random thoughts that intrude. This morning at 5 am, here came POSSLQ, unbidden, from the memory vaults. All I could recall was that it stood for Person of Opposite Sex Sharing Living Quarters, and had been used in the Census. Wikipedia revealed that it was the … Read the rest...

A Bridge to Nowhere

Sean Thornton submitted this little tale.

Earlier, a father promised his son that they would go for a walk if the son had completed his homework before tea-time.

After a while they came up to a bridge. “That is a liar bridge” said the father “it collapses when a liar walks across it”. This scared the son who … Read the rest...

Shaggy Cotton

Another from the prolific Dave Wallace.

Central California and Australia produce some of the finest cotton in the world. The reason is that it never (well, hardly ever) rains in California and, using irrigation from the Sierras, the crop can be kept at the exact soil moisture necessary to optimize plant growth. The same
situation exists in parts of Australia, where it truly never rains, but the water is supplied by Artesian wells. Never so dry that the crop is … Read the rest...

Shaggy Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

Another picture pun making the rounds. At some point, I’ll get tired of this meme, but it hasn’t happened yet.

Shagga Shagga

Dave submitted this tale from Down Under.

This is a true story.

Born in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, Australia, I’ve hiked/backpacked the Australian Alps and the California Sierras for all of my life. I’m Strine.

So, on a Trans-Sierra Day Hike (TSDH) a few years ago, the following actually happened.

Crossing the Sierras (“The Range of Light”, according to John Muir) in a single day is not only possible, but very instructive. If you start at the Rock … Read the rest...
