Needless to say, it’s still REALLY COLD outside … well, in most places anyhow.
How cold is it?
Ask this dude:
That’s mighty cold!
Now … you know how snow cow would deal with that problem, right?
But anyhow …
Actually, before we get back to talking about the weather, and since that image is just a slam dunk segue into the whole subject of “slim pickins” … allow me to share with you an image I came across this morning that seared my eyeballs …

Now maybe you won’t be so hard on Snow Cow!
But we should really get back to this whole climate change thing …
Seems it’s too late for us to appease Snow Cow … the northern hemisphere is already buried in ice and the other side of the planet, especially for our lovely brothers and sisters in Australia, are being seared by record high temperatures. I mean, seriously, check this out: this is a satellite image of the U.K. taken a few days ago. The entire freaking place is covered in snow!
It’s not just snot that’s freezing these days, sports fans. Hell, some parts of the northern hemisphere have seen entire waterfalls freeze for the first time …

Hell, you think THAT’S bad?
Check out this group of seals that were almost frozen in place when they woke up on morning this week!
I’m tellin’ ya, dude … it is COLD this winter!!!
And as a little side-note of a PSA:
Don’t let your children run on the ice with chopsticks in their hands or mouth!
Oh … SNAP!
You know that had to hurt!!!!!!
> > >
By and by … up to this point, these are ALL real pics from real shit that’s happening the world the past week or so.
… come on kiddies, say it out loud with me …
I’M CRAPPIN’ YOU NEGATIVE!
So, how are some people dealing with these record low temperatures?
In one town in Russia, the locals put together a portable hot tub …
That actually looks like a bit of a fun!
A hell of a lot more fun that what these freaks of nature find entertaining …
What’s with all the blood on the ice block???
* * *
So, where were we?
Oh, that’s right … taking a look around the globe and taking a look at what others are doing to make the best of this whole cold weather thang …
A couple of drunk fellas in Scotland decided to have some fun on a canal that had frozen over. Granted, the U.K. is getting a lot of snow, but I dare say it’s not quite been cold enough to freeze to the point of being drive worthy.
They, as you can see, learned that the hard way …
Meanwhile, on the other side of the planet, the Japanese snow monkeys are (as they are famous for doing every winter) chilling in the one of the local hot springs …
Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong came to Washington D.C. this week to continue their efforts at legalizing marijuana ..
Now that I see those two pics in sequence, it makes me wonder if Cheech and Chong didn’t make a stop in Japan first to hook up the local snow monkey population.
Hey … stranger things HAVE happened!
Speaking of Scotland, the good people of Lake Menith held their FIRST curling competition in something like THIRTY years!
Sadly, like so many of the other obviously scotch drinking people of that fine country, they learned the hard way that it takes more than just a few days of cold temperatures to make a body of water travel worthy …
Sadly, the town quickly canceled the tournament citing safety reasons.
And others …
Well, seems that some just jumped outside and just had plenty of fun with no specific goal in mind …
Yeah … that’s niiiiiiiiiice!
Apart from the previous image, I’m otherwise with the anonymous dog on this whole cold and ice and snow thing …
There’s a reason the entire northern hemisphere or our planet is experiencing record low temperatures and I can promise you that the salad tossing liberal extremists that are our modern media aren’t going to let us in on the truth.
That’s a thermal image (via satellite, d’uh) taken in just the past few days. The artificial color coding shows the current ground temperatures compared to historic norms.
As you can plainly see, the Arctic circle is WELL above average … and I guess all that hot air is pushing what would otherwise be REALLY cold, arctic air (which is normally supposed to STAY inside of said circle — I mean, that’s why we put it there in the first place, dontcha know) and pushing it outwards and downwards onto us inhabitants of the northern hemisphere.
And we all know where all that hot air is coming from …
I mean, apart from Al Gore …
See what happens when you piss off Snow Cow?
Sadly, though, what is in place is in place … and now we must let nature run her course.
Believe it or not … that’s actually a good thing. It allows Snow Cow to take a break from his Reaper-like duties and it affords him the opportunity to secretly watch over our troops overseas …
Now that I have so many friends named Frank it just doesn’t seem right to say things like, “let me be frank with you” …
As you can tell, I’ve been giving this some thought and I’ve finally settled on an alternative.
Allow me to be a seductive albino gorilla and talk plainly to you about something …
Yes, I have another secret to share with you goodly people of Buck’s World!
As some of you know, I’ve been a rather industrious soul, even from my earliest years …
and as the years have moved along there has been numerous opportunities whereupon I would have a chance encounter that would, as they say, get the proverbial wheels turning …
It was (as you can tell by the hidden writing on the right side of the image above) just a couple of years ago when I happened upon yet another tawdry PETA protest.
And I gotta tell ya, as a guy, it’s hard to not stop and think for a moment when we stumble across any of these overtly sexual, semi-to-almost-full nude protests of theirs.
Of course, us heterosexual guys aren’t thinking about whatever retarded message it is that they’re trying to convey …
But anyhow …
That particular encounter was the closed-eye fodder for more than one wasted seed when, some time later, I had one of those exceptionally rare post release epiphanies!
If vegetarians are, in fact, tastier, why not open a restaurant?!?!?!

Actually, I AM crappin’ ya this time around … I don’t own a restaurant.
When last we met, we ended our quality time together reflecting on that which is Ninja.
It only seems fitting that today we end on a related note, since these last two blog posts are actually supposed to be interconnected.
Ninjas are not to be messed with.
Because they will kill you … and you won’t even see them coming.
Who’s the last person to pull this stunt off since the son of God walked the Earth (and water)?
Yeah, SRSLY … the dude is literally running on water.
* * *
Ninja’s even teach their monkeys how to fight!
* * *
and Ninjas are thoughtful enough to teach their monkeys to enjoy a cold, frosty beer after vanquishing their enemies!
Ninjas, simply put, are not to be messed with!

Here, take a brief moment to watch this video …
(thanks to MFree for the link!)
Well, sports fans … I guess it’s about time I grab my things and head on back to the domicile to face another joyful evening of packing boxes.
I hope to have another roasty, toasty, succulent vowel movement for you again some time soon.
But in the meantime, always remember …
Never forget …
Don’t run with boys that do …
Love those that hate you
Bless those that persecute you
and most importantly, ladies and gentlemen …
have a good day!

Until next our paths cross …
