Happy anniversary to BogsBlog! One year ago today was my very first post. Four of them, actually, still available in the archives.
I really got going later in 2005, as scandals, nominations and all sorts of other stuff came round. 2006 would be very good to me indeed, as I gained some regular readers - some who dig me, and others who want to dig a hole in which to bury me.
So, here I am providing clarity amid the world's copious muck five or six times a week. And I would not have been able to accomplish it without you guys out there.
Had I not had people reading and commenting here, after a while I would have stopped altogether. (Meaning, you may have already lost your chance at shuttin' me up!) No use in speaking to an empty house.
So, thank you! And in the misquoted words of the still-mortal Sally Field, "You like me! You really like me!!!"
And now, please to enjoy some Fragmentia 13...
THINGS TO PONDER
Why do some American military officials stateside conduct press briefings wearing desert camo? Do they think a desert war is suddenly going to break out in a major metropolitan area?
The failed minimum wage bill would have exempted employers from paying minimum wage to workers who also earn tips. Customers’ generosity shouldn’t excuse any employer from paying their workers fairly. Greedy bastidz!
SOME (JUICY) PIG
Lucky for Wilbur they didn’t yet have ultrasound technology when he won the state fair, otherwise he might have been turned into bacon back at the farmhouse regardless of his prizewinning status.
NO “69?” CALL 911!
A middle-aged German woman whose husband refused to satisfy her carnal appetites called the police on him. Can you say “peaking?”
Enjoy some cartoons related to the drink-driving (non-US English variant of the expression) arrest of Mad Mel Gibson.
