Have you seen Snow Cow???
Seems the early snow fall last weekend brought out our elusive friend, Snow Cow (which, by and by, should never be confused with the elusive Butt Ox … but that’s another story for another day). Please join me in a moment of silence whilst we share a prayer for the safe and healthy return of our hero, Snow Cow.

Holy crap, guys! You close your eyes for a mere few seconds and THIS is the sort of crap that pops into your mind????
That is downright disturbing! Shame on you … on ALL of you …

So, the urge to blast out some really pissed off political bloggage is definitely brewing away inside. Thing is, anything I’m in the mood to rant about has already been covered. Worse still, I fear that apathy and cynicism is so rampant in our society that such blogs are tantamount to preaching to the choir. The only people reading them are the people who agree … who are equally as pissed off … and still, “we” continue to vote in the same worthless career criminals and ass-hats.
So, whilst I decide what to write about over at my “Politico” website, wadda ya say we take a stroll through some of my photograph archives?
Those who’ve followed my online shenanigans over the years are aware that I sport a rather hefty image collection. Nothing at all compared to my MP3 collection, which is — quite frankly — downright impressive(over 7,800 albums, and roughly 105,000 songs).
All the same, my photo collection is not only thorough, but contains imagines from around the planet … and a good number of them of places very, VERY far away.
In fact, a few of them were taken during some of my shenanigans while experimenting with a friend’s time travel device:
Enough gloating, though.

Some have asked why I abandoned MySpace. Apart from having already written about the retarded level of drama and worse, I really should add that the place … well, it just lacks class, ya know?
Seriously … MySpace has truly become the trailer park of social websites.
Speaking of trailer parks and since it IS the “holiday season” which, as we all know, brings with it PLENTY of Christmas cheer … let’s take a moment to reflect upon the little children of the world raised in such places.
Looks like the little bumpkin was up ALL NIGHT, doesn’t it?

Earlier this week, a dear friend of the Spousal Unit innocently posted a question on my Facebook page, asking, “What is camel toe anyway?”
I have to admit, I stared at that question and blinked a few times in confusion. I mean, Mary is about my age, maybe a little younger. Granted, she LOOKS a great deal younger than me, but all the same … it’s not like little Miss Mary has lead a particularly sheltered life.
So, since this was asked on Facebook … and since I have most of my family and some family friends linked to that profile … most notably, my wife … I struggled with how best to answer that question.
I mean, if nothing else, answering that question too directly could easily lead one into a veritable shit storm …
We don’t want that!
. . .
It finally occurred to me that perhaps it’s not just Mary who has not heard that particular vernacular …
And that, folks … in all seriousness… falls into the category of:

So, since we’re on the subject … the term camel toe is a bit more versatile than you may think!
To start with, you’ve got the painfully obvious … there’s the perfectly literal sense of the term:

There’s always the SLIGHTLY less than literal as well …
Sorry, but that is amongst one of the COOLEST tattoos I’ve ever seen!

Believe it or not, “The Camel Toe” enjoys a certain amount of notoriety in the fashion industry as well. Behold, my friends, the Camel Toe sandals!
Once again, ladies and gentlemen … I am crapping you negative! That is a REAL product … or, at least, once was.
Speaking of product advertisements …
I dare say that probably never was a real product …

You see, there are just some things one shouldn’t post on their blog once the cat is out of the bag and family members are linked in …

Which brings me back to my point. When it comes to posting stuff on the internet . . .
Always remember boys and girls …
Well, after years of being part of an active (usually) blogging community over at the psycho-circus cesspool of cyberspace known as “MySpace” … I have finally broken free. Wish me luck as I busy myself cleaning off the muck and sludge from my soul that resulted from my stay there.
I have many things to say on the “plus” side about that site, but the negatives so far outweigh them that it seems silly to say any more than that.
So, in the midst of this ritual cleansing / cyber-decontamination process, I opted to also shave off a few excess rough edges from the bloggage / drivel / generalized vowel movements that I’ll begin posting here on my own domain. To those of you more accustomed to my past performances that border on the profane … bear with me. In all honesty, if I cannot articulate myself in equally as entertaining and laugh-engendering ways without, then I obviously have some issues … am I wrong?
… of course not!
After 13 years of posting my ongoing series, “It’s a &*$@ed Up World, Charlie Brown” … I am considering a name change along the lines of : “The News As Viewed Askew.” (that’s actually been an on-again / off-again alternate title for that same series)
Perhaps the former title with the semi-random ANSI characters might actually work, I dunno … I’ll have to ponder that one a little before wholeheartedly committing to it.
So, rather than ceaselessly ramble any further … let me end this by welcoming you. If you’re one of my readers from elsewhere, PLEASE feel free to leave a comment as it’s wonderful that you came along.
Until I have my next pix blog or installment of “The News as Viewed Askew” … feel free to click and enjoy!
