Nice work if you can get it.

Shake it, don' break it.

I read quickly, but I believe the author failed to substantiate the "super relaxed" title.

I did read that the a good diet, and health care maybe one of the reasons. I guess this is just reinforcing the free-health-care-for-all argument.

Orlando Gibbons on life.

Did love one of the sidebar stories:
"106-year-old N.L. woman sustained by pizza, fries"

http://www.cbc.ca/news/offbeat/story/2011/11/07/nl-106-birthday-rushoon-food-1107.html?cmp=rss

It's from the CBC so they may just be trying to promote a way out of that government run healthcare thing, though.

I thought this was about the medicinal properties of wild asparagus.

What does a "wise" gibbon know?

Don't sweat the small stuff.

And the professor missed a nice comment elsewhere on the page:

"LPZ's Caruso may live that long, being crazy and peeing on people is a great stress reliever. [emphasis added]"

Now THAT is something to take note of!

Super-relaxed.

Well, except for all the time he put in on that "thick, damned, square book," according to the Crown Prince.

I slapped my first ever bumper sticker the other day. "Respect Your Elders", from primatesinc.com

For some reason evolution/creation bumper stickers are just made for automobiles.

I'm pretty sure all bumper stickers are just made for automobiles...

From the article: "Though her exact age is impossible to determine."

So she may actually be 47.

Outliers exist in all species, so her longevity means exactly nothing.

Bumper stickers are for dorm rooms and doors, too. Mirrors and windows included.

Unemployment is good your health.

Cheers to her chill attitude and longevity. It's in the genes really. Her telomeres must be long as hell.

I loathe all monkeys, apes and chimps. And gibbons.

Duly noted, Icepick! ha ha

Updating my "Reincarnation Wish List"... yet again.

Icepick said...

Penny, I'm thinking of making that the new family motto.

(The old one, Non sumus demens; sumus sordidus solum. is out of date.)

Haha, yes. But I meant creation/evolution concepts and messages. They just seem tailor made for bumper stickers. Political/candidate bumper stickers are so boring.

As an old Philadelphia DJ used to say, "Keep a cool paw. Live, love, laugh, and be happy"

Oh cripes, Icepick?

Cut me a break. I'm old! lol

Google confuses me in foreign languages.

Would be ever so appreciative if you offered a translation....Followed with a "this is what I meant". :)

The first?
Bullshit, you're an angry fool.

Did you cover the "Carter '80" bumper sticker?

Icepick said...

Non sumus demens; sumus sordidus solum.

Latin. Translation: "We're not crazy, we're just mean." Said by my mother at a Christmas Eve dinner about another branch of the family. (I still can't tell the story that precedes that line because I'm not sure the statute of limitations has run out yet. I only wish I was kidding.)

Icepick said...

PS I not sure if "Being crazy and peeing on people is a great stress reliever" is an improvement or not. But I do think it's funnier!

Penny said...

"We're not crazy, we're just mean."

Let me guess?

Chapter Two will give us insight into the ... "Why?"

Penny said...

So, before you get too far into your answer, Pick?

This Block needs to hit the igloo. ;)

Penny said...

Long as it stays this chilly, we can pick up from here tomorrow.

Hell, it appears J. Fred Muggs is still alive.

As of January 23, 2004, the fifty-two-year-old Muggs and his "live-in girlfriend" Phoebe B. Beebe (who also made appearances on the Garroway show) are still alive in Citrus Park, Florida, in the care of Gerald Preis, Mennella's son. In 2004, Joe Hagan of the New York Observer reached Gerald Preis, 60, at his home where Preis said that Muggs "has a little gray, mostly in his beard.
