Today's Dose of Humor

A potpourri of playful trifles...

First, let me introduce The Daily Brew. This new column "attempts to address contemporary themes with truthful and relevant principles for the purpose of positively impacting our culture." Sounds lofty, but it's simply a workable format for me, Beth, and special guest corresblogdents to interact with the issues of the day.

Speaking of Beth, I want to introduce my collaborator on this project. An excellent thinker and writer, Beth blogs regularly at And Then I Woke Up... Not as aggressive as I am in promoting herself (she's a Wiggly Worm), Beth nevertheless has an important perspective to share and I'm excited to be working with her. Beth's weekly input is brewed on Wednesdays (and sometimes Fridays). So watch for the Daily Brew tomorrow!

I aim to feature a guest blogger every Tuesday (and sometimes Friday :-) - and am proud to introduce David, our premier corresblogdent from Third World County. He wrote a powerful post on education featured yesterday today (I posted it last night for a midnight showing) titled, Teach Your Children Well. I hope this daily column will spark some engaging conversation. Thanks for reading.

Now on to the pot...pourri

1) Silly Search String: 1880's Hairstyles on the Prairie
This silly searcher found an archive that mixed two posts...

Lester Moore was a Wells, Fargo Co. station agent in the 1880's.
He's buried in the Boot Hill Cemetery in Tombstone, Arizona.
"Here lies Lester Moore, Four slugs from a .44, No Les no more."

AND found my friend's entry from Spain...

"You should not be suprised if you start seeing a bunch of mohawk / mullet looking hairstyles in Kansas in 7 years because they are all the rage here right now. Almost all the young guys you see have some form of mullet ... haven´t seen them on the girls yet and hopefully I never will."

2) I get a bunch of referrals as a Random Blog Entry featured at Darwin Awards (the movie) because of my experiment awhile back blogging about contemporary stuff I know nothing about. My purpose was to get more hits. And hey, it worked, although not in the way I expected :-)

Well, gentle readers. Thanks for listening.
