No more Flintstones jokes -- or I may KILL AGAIN!
The people who name the hurricanes have committed a grave crime against my brain (such as it is). They have selected as a name for a tropical cyclone a name that was also used by a classic retro 'toon, The Flintstones.

And the bad Flintstones jokes have been defiling the airwaves and Internets all day. I must have heard close to a dozen on the radio in the last 24 hours alone.

Naming a 'cane after Rita Cosby was bad enough. And Katrina Leskanich's old band has been out of favor long enough to keep that gag from being used more than once or twice.

But this Flintstones crap has GOT to STOP ... or Dr. Pigwidgeon may turn into MR. HOGG!

:evilgrin:

9. Mojo-- you take care of yourself. And Wilma, too.
Well maybe Fitzmas will come before the weekend so that you can have some nice thoughts. Power might be out so you might want to get a Coleman stove to pop the popcorn for Fitzmas.
:popcorn:
Cheers.
:toast:

19. Don't I know it
My brother and his family live in Orlando -- some of them live in Miami.

My mother is scheduled to take a train down to Orlando this Friday.

Yep, my mind is "concentrated wonderfully", to paraphrase the old saw about being shot at.

7. .........
Donald Rumsfeld is giving the president his daily briefing. He concludes by saying: "Yesterday, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed."

"OH NO!" the President exclaims. "That's terrible!"

His staff sits stunned at this display of emotion, nervously watching as the President sits, head in hands.

Finally, the President looks up and asks, "How many is a brazillion?"
