Ouch Outrageous Obnoxious and Odd: Funny Video: Flying Pig, No Wings Necessary


Flying Piglet


Ouch Outrageous Obnoxious and Odd: Funny Video: Flying Pig, No Wings Necessary: From Denny:  This is one of those unexpected videos from real life that catches you off guard.

The piglets and Momma pig were being filmed and discussed as to weaning time for the little guys.  Well, get a shocker as to how Big Pig quickly convinces her piglets to wean themselves.  Now you know where the children's books got the idea for flying pigs.  Watch closely as it happens so fast you might miss it.

Sort of reminds you of Wall Street Bankers where you sure would like to thump them all out, weaning them off corporate welfare and federal bailouts.

Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food: Fun St. Patricks Day Facts To Ponder While You Swill Green Beer: From Denny:  Mardi Gras just happened last month, and, well, Lent can be a dull affair while we are waiting for Easter.  So, why not spice it up with some St. Patrick's Day frivolity and celebration?

South Louisiana is primarily Catholic and we like our champion demon-chasing warrior saints. Honoring him is serious business.

Here in Louisiana we celebrate with none other than a St. Patrick's Day Parade, complete with official bead-throwing and green beer freely flowing.

Since all good holy days have a serious component along with the feasting here's some brain food to feed you too.  Be sure to check out my other St. Patrick's Day posts at the end of this post.  Lots of interesting historical trivia, quotes, poems, Irish blessings and funny thoughts too.

The Social Poets: International Womens Day: Whats Happening Around The World




The Social Poets: International Womens Day: Whats Happening Around The World: From Denny:  Women are in crisis around the globe this year - from the Middle East to Europe to America.  For the Middle East it is about torture, malicious prosecution, unjust imprisonment and the selling into prostitution and slavery of both women and their children.

For America it is about dealing with the Hate Merchants women are expected to shrug off and endure as it contributes to domestic abuse, unequal pay and hiring in the work place and vicious gang rape in our military.  In Europe women are dealing with a deep economic crisis that is rocking the foundations of society, robbing hope for the next generation's prosperity.

Cookies: Almond Nuggets with Chocolate Drizzle
















From Denny:  Chocolate and almonds are the ideal combination for a cookie.  This is basically a sugar cookie with sliced almonds that makes for a stiff dough.

It is a simple exercise of dropping the cookie dough onto the cookie sheet - so that makes it easy even for beginner bakers.  The chocolate comes in when you ice the cookie with bittersweet chocolate that has been melted together with real butter and almond extract.

What's amusing is how the recipe creator actually thinks these mere 24 cookies will last long enough to make it into a covered container.  Bring your friends! :)

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Monday Morning Work Cartoons

somebody give this cat some coffee quick! :)

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Monday Morning Work Cartoons: From Denny: Check out these funny work day cartoons I found hanging around in the draft section of this blog. Better yet, the cartoonists still have the embed codes enabled - which certainly makes me do a little Sesame Street Elmo Happy Dance.

Almost two years ago it was when a stable of famous cartoonists quit enabling the embed codes to their political cartoons on thousands of blogs and sites. Considering how much traffic we bloggers sent them that could not have been too smart a business move. Oh, well. :) It also explains why you will see blank areas in a post or web page and maybe a few cartoons still left to view.

One of these days I'll get around to doodling my own cartoons and put the embed codes up on flickr - free to bloggers forever. So, while you are waiting for Her Greatness to find the time to doodle you can enjoy these smart cartoonists who are still available for viewing, enjoy!
