Can I be serious?

Why, yes. Yes I can be serious. I'm not all fun and games, jokes, laughs, stupid caption on animal pics, and smoke and mirrors.

However even when I am being serious, I do have to quote a comedian. Just cus.

I've been following the US economy for quite some time now... I'd like to say I'm shocked at what has happened (Crikey!!! Lehmann and Merril Lynch GONE with AIG next; shortly after Freddie and Fanny were *gasp* SOCIALIZED?!!!???!) but, sadly, I'm not. The reasons why I'm not surprised are many and I'm not going there right now. But I do have to give a shout out to the US'ns reading this (and here's where the comedian quote comes in):

"I'm pullin' fer ya. Remember, we're all in this together."

BTW the first person who correctly names the actor who said that line regularly will win a screensaver.


And now, back to our regularly scheduled blog of Aussie animal pics with funny captions!

Well, his real name is Steve Smith, but we know him as Red Green.

How many of these do I need to win to get Quantus Airline Miles from Anchorage to there?

I'm just glad I'm not retiring this year. And I own property safely in the mountains. And I don't owe more on my house than it's worth. Of course, if Sarah gets VP, here comes the pipeline and I'm outta here to warmer climes. Toshua

Ish: It's Qantas, BTW. You'll need to win a lot more as I'm not an affiliate with Qantas LOL. So, if I ask you what's the significance of the pickle, will you tell me about motorcycles, broken guitar strings and yield signs? Also, drop me an email and let me know what other images you are wanting for your wallpaper, ta.

Toshua: you can come down here anytime... ummmm that would be the fourth visit? Maybe to stay? And if sarah gets to be veep and mccain prez, why would you want to stay? Perhaps a fondness for radiation from the nuclear war with Russia?

And if sarah gets to be veep and mccain prez, why would you want to stay? In the US should have been in there...

I don't want a pickle, I just want to ride my motor-cickle. I don't care, even if it is the size of a watermelon with a ticket in it. I just want to ride my motor-cickle.

Nice reference!

Ish: Are you my long lost hippy twin?

Alrighty Ish, one more song quiz for ya!

What's the real reason the Titantic sank, how long was the rope, and what was the rope made of?
