I love this part:


As the clock ticks away a lifetime,
hold your head up to the gun of a million cathode ray tubes
aimed at your tiny skull.
May you find sweet inspiration, may your memory not be dull.
May you rise to dizzy success.
May your wit be quick and strong.
May you constantly amaze us.
May your answers not be wrong.
May your head be on your shoulders.
May your tongue be in your cheek.
And most of all we pray that you may come back next week!
Be a quiz kid.
Be a whiz kid.

Remember Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom? Remember Marlin Perkins?

Well, do you remember the guy who did all the dirty work?

Jim Fowler died on May 8th. His fish was complications from heart disease.


I'm going to describe it from this nice warm studio, while my friend Jim attempts to circumcise a live water buffalo.

Aw, shit, man.:sniff:

Grumpy Cat,

Attachment 67810

(real name Tardar Sauce) has died (May 14). She was 7 years old. The mixed breed cat died of complications of a urinary tract infection.

Her 'grumpy' appearance was caused by an underbite, and feline dwarfism.

Also, architect, and crossword puzzle clue/answer I.M. Pei died May 16, at 102. As for his fish...He was 102!

Grumpy Cat, aka Tardar Sauce, 7.

This is a true loss for the Internet. Grumpy Cat represented a better time, when we used social media to just enjoy pictures of a cat who looked grumpy.

I cried real tears when i read about Her this morning.

Undertoad 05-17-2019 07:40 PM
