Is that one of those horrible things that has puffy powder within?

The White Rabbit takes an Embryonic Journey. Also, could "Puff" be a synonym for "Drag-on"? Or at least a pun?

Misty said...

Doesn't look like it's frollicking.

In an effort to be gender-neutral, Yarrow now sings the line 'A dragon lives forever, but not so little boys" as "A dragon lives forever, but not so girls and boys.'

Isn't that sweet?

"and frolics in the autumn mist

Sorry! Best I could do and still rhyme.

Hitch would not be pleased but could not be reached for comment.

If only he were Albi the Racist Mushroom, there might be some bubblegum quiche.

Uterine.

Totally edible, for what that's worth. Delicious sliced and sauteed.

No, there is not powder in those mushrooms. Those are housings for tiny radars built by elves.

Limbaugh references Buck Turgidson down there ↓, a character in Dr. Strangelove. Now that is a funny name right there. Apparently the character is based on Gen. Curtis LeMay.

President Merkin Muffley, one of the characters played by Peter Sellers in the movie, is another funny name, a pun that British audiences appreciate immediately.

Merkins are pubic wigs that were made to cover the running sores of syphilis. They were used by prostitutes.

This is history!

In 1964 when Lyndon Johnson addressed the nation in his Texan accent, "My fellow Merkins …" it sent British citizens into paroxysms of laughter, and still amuses following generations who never even heard Johnson's voice.

"Come on, Chip, make something pop out of that puff ball! "

Like Lyndon Johnson with a merkin on his head?

Meade's idea for a pop-up card is brilliant.

Chip Ahoy... it wasn't just Brits who laughed at LBJ's 'Merkin'. As an American teen I found it mirthful.

The most convincing evidence for global Warming the UN IPCC has seen yet. These pods are ending life on the planet as we know it. Now, that should be worth several Trillion dollars of Tax money to end world fungi attacks.
