G’day, Cousin

Crikey!  According to Australian researchers, humans and kangaroos shared a common ancestor 150 million years ago and have similar sections of DNA.  "We thought they’d be completely scrambled, but they’re not," said one expert.  "There is great chunks of the human genome which is sitting right there in the kangaroo genome."  Well, this helps explain Yahoo Serious.

Let’s get “Teh” in the dictionary! Think of the Scrabble® players!!!

People, the National Post is reporting that we are THIS CLOSE to getting the word "Teh" in the dictionary. That’s right: "Teh". Right next to "Meh" and "Truthiness." COME ON!

It’s prolly all Theo’s fault.

CHECK IT, MOFOS!

Thanks for the heads-up, The Dude!

The Lurking Nose!

In icy Nosevember, as the west wind blows
As mercury plummets and shutters close
As candles flicker their final throes
What lurks nearby, do you suppose?

Ruh-rohs!

From highs or lows, in grim repose
Its steady, strident sniffing grows
Like tell-tale hearts in tales of Poe’s
And where it comes from, no one knows.

Yesss, I yam eeen-VEEEES-ee-bulhs.

So heed this warning, to all those
Who seek out warmth for frozen toes
Where icy moistness sometimes goes,
Beware the chill of … THE LURKING NOSE!

We Take You Now to King Neptune Memorial Speedway

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Atlantianapolis 500, and if you’ve just joined us, it’s been a thrilling race so far.  In a stunning upset, odds-on favorite Mario Clamdretti dropped out of the race when his 300-seahorsepower racer crashed on the far turn.  And as we enter the final laps, I see that current leader Ridley McFlatback is getting the signal from his pit crew to come in for service …

Check my left flipper; it's running a little hot.

I hear he’s got endorsement deals with Shell Oil AND Turtle Wax, Brinke G.

I Gotta Get Outta This Racket

"I can’t take this off-the-wall job anymore. It’s not my fault; I try to give good service, but I’m hamstrung all the time. I hoped I could court a sports career, but I guess I don’t have the … nerve."

One of these things is not like the others ...

Game, set and match, Stephanie T.
