Talk about misdirected mail…

Maybe they sent this to everyone in Minnesota, last Saturday, 2020-04-11, but it’s certainly not an actionable piece of correspondence at our house… although the pocket knife as an oxymoronic “free gift” looks like it might be handy, I could get one of those at Fleet Farm.

Will Eno

Michael C. Hall was on the 2018-11-02 episode of the Ask Me Another podcast and made the following statements.  The first I’m guessing is a line from the play Thom Pain (based on nothing) in which Hall is currently appearing, and the second is what Hall says is one of Will Eno’s favorite jokes.

  • “I’m the type of guy you may not hear from for some time; but then suddenly one day — bang  you never hear from me again.”
  • “People laugh when they said I was going to be a comedian, but they’re not laughing now.”

Birthday Horoscope

There are no limits on your dress, and your achievements are within your reach.  Creating an environment that will consistently support you is a commitment; don’s expect it to happen overnight.  Stay compassionate.  Get a new coach or teacher to help you transition into your new life.  Scorpio and Aquarius adore you.  Your lucky numbers are: 17, 8, 9, 33 and 40.

Fit together

Time magazine occasionally prints these cartoons from John Atkinson’s Wrong Hands.  I thought that these two cartoons seemed to go together, and I wondered if the Oxymoron Museum was located in Redundantown…
