It looks like broken tile glass of some kind. That's my guess.

broken wax?

wv: irami = what is broken wax?

Ricardo said...

Salt water taffy, that has been smashed with a hammer.

Looks like Bird Bird met an untimely demise.

Ron said...

Did you put all your eggs in one basket?

The spew from Althouse Hillbillies after they ate broken glass, stones and other found items while crawling on the ground.

------------------

Ann, any embarrassment yet over throwing your lot earlier this week with the kooks screaming "death panels" given that even many conservatives are now disavowing such silliness? Ann, have you thought about how low you are willing to go to keep your share of the hillbillies? You don't just want to be another small town huckster do you?

A huge Dylan fan's ego?

Judge Doom at the end of Roger Rabbit.

Triangle Man said...

Looks like it was once a duck. Discarded and smashed related to "move out" day, or the State Fair.

A huge Dylan fan's ego?

A complete unknown? Like a Rolling Stone?

C'est a dire:


Shattered, shattered
Love and hope and sex and dreams
Are still surviving on the street
Look at me -- I'm in tatters!
I'm a shattered.
Shattered

Friends are so alarming
And my lover's never charming
Life's just a cocktail party - on the street
Big Apple
People dressed in plastic bags
Directing traffic
Some kind of fashion
Shattered

Laughter, joy, and loneliness and sex and sex and sex and sex
Look at me - I'm in tatters I 'm a shattered
Shattered

Jackson Pollock threw up.

I came here all excited to post the Dylan story, but MadisonMan beat me to it. And I was gonna make a snarky Skip Gates comment, but NPR beat me to it. All I've got left is the story about Sotomayor refusing to show her ID at fitness clubs.

A wedding present Althouse really, really didn't like?

Dark Eden said...

For some reason I want to say a smashed pikachu doll.

Pogo said...

The morning after a Big Pharma convention.

Pogo said...

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

Jason (the commenter) said...

Maybe Althouse had a weird glass menagerie she would always stare at, but decided to destroy it now that she has a man.

Jason (the commenter) said...

Maybe Althouse is drunk blogging (yet again) and really has no idea.

Pogo said...

The contents of Courtney Love's purse.

Jason (the commenter) said...

What happens when Meade thinks he can change something at Althouse's Wisconsin home.

Justin Talbot said...

crayons?

Pogo said...

The consequences of putting Kraft cheese in a cheap bowl in the microwave for 5 minutes.

Pogo said...

Spongebob in deep space.

Pogo said...

The Approved Formulary under Obamacare.

Pogo said...

Just moments after Dale Chihuly sneezed.

Jeff Gee said...

I'm also thinking crayons-- maybe what you get when you clean out the crayon sharpener at the bottom of the box?

word verification: talli!

JAL said...

Omigosh Pogo.

You know who Dale Chihuly is?

crumpe

Jason (the commenter) said...

She gave us a clue.

Now I'm guessing that on the long drive home they crashed their car into some sort of gay pride event.

Will there be another picture, of the same scene, but even further back, full of bloody bodies? We an only hope.

Jason (the commenter) said...

I'll be somewhat irritated if Titus got hurt!

Ron said...

Ahhhh!!! It's Crayola Buchenwald!

Joan said...

It's either crayons, chalk, or pastels.

LOL on the Dale Chihuly sneeze -- our Desert Botanical Garden had a Chihuly installation this winter/spring, it was spectacular. I went three times. I adore art glass -- but this photo looks nothing like glass to me!

Ralph L said...

Someone dunked a fruit salad with whipped cream in liquid nitrogen and then dropped it on the floor. Or the bottom of the dumpster at the Corning Test Lab.

"Omigosh Pogo.

You know who Dale Chihuly is?"

Anyone who's been paying attention around here for a certain length of time would.

bearbee said...

candles or crayons.

Pastafarian said...

Is it the raw material used for some sort of glass-blowing operation?

Ralph L said...

ding, ding, ding! We have a winner.
The puzzle is now: why did someone shatter them in a pile?
