a.k.a. Things I wish I could’ve written, but sadly could not possibly dream of writing.

All of these are long (some even longer than others) and may not initially interest you, but I really recommend them.

Fred Rogers: Can you say hero? by Tom Junod (Esquire): a feature on Mister Rogers of PBS and international fame. I admit I misted up a little.

The Cynic and Senator Obama by Charles P. Pierce (Esquire): Can seem a bit repetitive, but nonetheless well written.

I really didn’t need that stew by Joe Posnanski, on his greatest day of sportswriting. I don’t care if you don’t care about sports. Go read it.

– … and the actual column that was published in the Kansas City Star about Joe Posnanski’s greatest day of sportswriting, after the jump.

This will eventually make it onto Cute Overload, I figure. It’s too goddamn cute not to.

Paternal dog Billy takes on an unusual kid

A paternal dog has adopted an abandoned baby goat as his surrogate child.

Billy the boxer has become the constant companion of the 12-day old kid called Lilly. He sleeps with the goat, licks her clean, and protects her from any dangers at Pennywell Farm wildlife centre at Buckfastleigh, near Totnes, Devon.

I never understood people who thought Garfield strips were funny. The genius behind Garfield minus Garfield has me convinced that at the very least, photoshopped Garfield strips can be entertaining (albeit disturbing).

“Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolor disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life?

Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against lonliness and methamphetamine addiction in a quiet American suburb.”

Redundancy alert: this season of Project Runway has been lackluster. Regardless, I’m interested to see what the contestants can create.

Spoiler alert: click on to be spoiled, unless you don’t want to be spoiled, in which case, I would probably read something else.

how i wish to deflate your voluminous headwear

Posted in sufficiently entertaining tagged , at 2:54 pm by squishy

More than your excessive, excessive tears, Ricky, I detest your hats. I don’t think I could find such floofy monochromatic monstrosities to buy even if I tried.

To think Chris, Kevin and Kit were eliminated instead of you.

Only Ms. Shortcake is a tough old broad who’d cut you up before she let you see her cry. Don’t let the pink fool you.

Let’s hope he cries again next week, when he FINALLY GETS AUFED.

why don’t they have more songs about coyotes and polar bears?

Posted in sufficiently entertaining, weekly absolution tagged , at 8:22 am by squishy

From the now-ubiquitous Daily Coyote


Reading about how Charlie (coyote) is trying to befriend Eli (cat; incumbent receiver of affection) is so adorable, and the photos documenting Charlie’s growth, as well as the surrounding Wyoming wilderness is beyond words. But there’s a sense of sadness throughout, particularly when the proprietor of the blog discusses the very real possibility of Charlie returning to the wild.

Kind of like Thomas Dörflein, the Berlin zookeeper who was Knut’s surrogate polar-mama:

“Many parents have trouble cutting the apron strings when it’s time for their offspring to make their own way in the world. It seems that polar bear Knut’s surrogate “mother” Thomas Dörflein is no exception: He just couldn’t do without a playful wrestle with the young bear he raised on a bottle.

But Dörflein’s ongoing affection for Knut has landed him in hot water. Berlin Zoo director Bernhard Blaszkiewitz has banned the keeper from contact with Knut after seeing photos of Dörflein illicitly tumbling with the bear in the Berlin tabloid newspaper BZ.

Blaszkiewitz was not amused when he saw the photos. “What they show is exactly what I have strictly forbidden Dörflein from doing,” he told the BZ. “The keeper is simply not allowed to roll around with Knut and especially not in public,” he said, adding that the game is too dangerous now that Knut is approaching his first birthday and tipping the scales at 107 kilos (236 pounds).”
