Sunday funnies

Key and Peele engage in a little workplace competition.

Abbott and Costello's "Who's on first?" routine, updated.

Animals: yeah, they're cute, but they're thieves.

Meh, sounds like pushing your luck, to me.

It's a miracle!

A few people still preserve the old skills (H/T: Captain Heinrichs).

This has me thinking about a new business opportunity: refilling ballpoint pens. Send me your ballpoint pen that stopped writing...and I'll put in a refill and send it back. All for the low, low price of $50. I'll even include an autographed copy of my upcoming book: The Lost Art of Refilling.

I always carry a knife, as do all competent or serious mariners (okay, and me as well). A couple days ago somebody next to me was writing with a pencil, asked to borrow my knife.

Then he swiftly sharpened the point on his pencil and went back to work.

I consider myself privileged to have had a small part in such a display of the old American spirit. Too bad nobody thought to make a video for YouTube.

Speaking of high end pencils:

$45 for a set of three pencils. Not mechanical pencils, either... but we'd expect nothing but the highest quality from the people behind Faber College.

My dog routinely steals things out of the garbage, even when I've stuffed her fat self to her floppy ears. I've threatened her with mechanical pencils and ballpoint pens, but she merely laughs at me.

Does anyone have advice?

When we first moved out to Lalor, one of our cats, Harriet, decided to start pilfering a neighbour's apple tree. Every morning we'd let her out for exercise, and go back to bed - only to be woken a quarter or half hour later by an audible THUMP on the floor, followed by Harriet's 'prrrt', alerting us to the fact that she had delivered the goods again.

Still not sure *what* backyard the apples came from. We made some nice apple stew out of them though!

This morning we stumbled across a rare sight in these suburbs - a kanga grazing in someone's front yard. It hopped off as soon as our car approached.

Of course our other pets - bees - are practiced thieves. You won't even notice them. And there's a lot of it going on here, too, as it's spring and there's plenty of pollen and flowering going on.
