There's one Kit Kat left....

Vending machine, with one Kit Kat left to buy....[3]

From Marshall McLuhan

In French Canada, there was a mouse who, hearing a cat's signature noises, hid in his hole in the floor. Silence. Then barking of the family dog. Dogs do not eat mice, so all clear, right? Cat to mouse on mouse's way down into Kitty's digestive tract: "Being bi-lingual has its uses."

Power outage in an nth-world country (USA)

+2023.08.30. This is not really funny but it is true. The electric power is out in this warm humid mid-summer night. I hear a neighbor's generator running, and I think of Toto's song, "Africa": "I hear the drums echoing tonight...."Next

Turnabout is fair play

Many years ago in New Scientist magazine there was a cartoon of Albert the Laboratory Rat. We see Albert sitting in the former Lab Director's plush leather executive desk chair, popping positive reinforcement cookies with one little front paw, and pressing a button on a little box with his other. Behind a one-way mirror we see the former Lab Director screaming in agony as Albert administers electric shocks to him in a kind of Milgram experiment.

  1. Roz Chast proposed that lost cat toys go to bedrock under New York City. Apparently she was wrong about that: they too must go to Heaven? God must be awfully busy with all these lost tidbits coming His way?
  2. Art Linkletter had a daytime TV show where he talked with children, and he let the kids say what they thought. At the time I (BMcC) thought he was silly. I now think Art Linkletter was a fool in the Medieval sense: A person who got paid to tell the King what the King might not want to hear, but since his job was to look silly he could get away with it and the King could choose to laugh off bad news or take it to heart or any combination thereof, according to his whim and wisdom. In the present instance, the enemy aka: parents, per the 1949 Geneva Conventions, if captured, you are only required to give: Name, rank and [serial] number.
  3. There was one good thing about working in the office. When the vending machine man came around and restocked the snack vending machine, he threw out unsold expired items (items past their "Use by" date), including expired Doritos. He deposited them in a trash can next to the vending machine I would take the expired Doritos and have free expired Doritos to eat. He did not object.
  4. Alternate headline: On advice from advisor Grigori Rasputin, Russia refuses to join European hostiities.
