A pause for humor ... and caption creativity


Art thou a "quakebuttock" when it comes to weird vocabulary? If not, then hie thee to this list of "Unusual, Obscure, and Preposterous Words"! Also tipped off to us today by the book blog Shelf Awareness is this very funny riff on Instagram with a Dorian Gray motif. Sometime New Yorker contributor Corey Pandolph is helping ends meet by selling off rejected cartoons, some I which I thought were quite good. For crowdsourced humor that made the cut (as in The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest Book), click here.
Something tells me this fair lassie will not make the softball team.
It's Friday, y'all!!
"One ... singular sensation, every little step they take..."
Does this look like Stephen King for tots to you??
More apt title: "Sibling Death Wish"; below, here's one for you to caption.
