My latest encounter was: F.u.c.k.ing, Austria

British tourists have left the residents of one charming Austrian village effing and blinding by constantly stealing the signs for their oddly named village.

While British visitors are finding it hilarious, the residents of ****ing are failing to see the funny side.

Only one kind of criminal stalks the sleepy 32-house village near Salzburg on the German border - cheeky British tourists armed with a sense of humor and a screwdriver.

But the local authorities are hitting back with the signs now set in concrete, police chief Kommandant Schmidtberger is on the lookout.

We will not stand for the ****ing signs being removed,the officer said.

Yes, every time Bush features on the news.
Every time Blair smiles.
Every time I look at my bank statements.
Every time I see a jumbo fly.
Every time i'm told we live in a democracy.
Every time the council tax bill arrives in the post.
Every time I see Roman Abramovich outside of a prison cell.
Every time i see Putin outside of a prison cell.
Every time Gordon Brown congratulates himself on a great job.

Yes... These stories, for instance:
It's a dark day when members of the Corrupt Bastards Club can't get an unfair shake in the courts.

Don't worry about yours. Them Brits just ain't got no ****ing sense of humor!

My wife is from Thailand and we happened to be in central Thailand when the tsunami hit. Watching it all unfold on television wasn't real it was surreal. People were so disoriented and missing family members, trying to find family members. Probably not too different from what Katrina did here, but with a tsunami there is rarely a warning, the skys were blue. Hurricanes probably use to be that way in the days before nexrad and high tech hurricane centers, incompetant FEMA organizations...well maybe that last bit hasn't changed.

On a lighter note, how's about humpback whales coming right into the harbor to feed? Yesterday in Auke Bay Harbor, Juneau:

We have lot's of REAL monsters like 1000# bears and sea lions and three kinds of whales which are very common here. Our King crabs grow to over 5 feet across.

And, lot's of other strange creatures around - tho' humanoid for the most part. There are lots of Tlingit Indian legends around too, about anthropomorphic changelings, etc.

The NW coast Indians here have a very highly developed and artistic culture, based on their legends and mythology, complete with 3-dimensional renderings (carvings & totems), and highly intricate weavings, stone carvings and so on. The 'native' population is still a large percentage of the whole here at around 25%, although virtually all have now been 'westernized' and are indistinguishable from others except for physical features.

We have the Mothman here in West Vir-gin-i-a.

Mothman - the enigma of Point Pleasant

Point Pleasant is a couple towns over from where I live. It's where my wife and I got married as a matter of fact. I've got to get a picture of me in my Superman t-shirt and cape wrestling the statue. I was doing a comic strip about it, but got sidetracked by The Spoof.

There are rumors that Superman's illegitimate half-brother lives right here in Ripley, WV, but I wouldn't know anything about that.

Yes. BP cancelled my insurance after I wrote some Spoof stories about them and the Corrupt Bastards Club. I found out when I went to pick up my wife's prescriptions which they didn't fill because the insurance company denied the claim.

Funny, she said, she's in no way a violent person. If that's foreplay I'd be terrified at the real deal. Hate to see what she does when she does feel viiolent. had to cross my legs reading that one.

My uncle broke up with a woman who turned around and married his best friend. She ended cutting that guy's penis off. He's sure glad he didn't marry her.

I knew a gal oncet who went to prison for shooting her boyfriend in the hoo-hahs with a shotgun - get 'em plus one of his legs to boot if you'll pardon the pun. Guy somehow survived. Now he's known as 'Double-Nub'.

How come when a guy goes after a woman in a rage he goes for the throat, and when a gal goes after the guy she invariably goes after his privates, ala Lorena Bobbitt et al?

Can anyone answer me that?

Must be something in the 'genes', eh?

Also, how come when a woman violently attacks a man like that, it's ok, but if a man tells a woman, "No, dear, you can't go shopping today. We don't have any money left," it's considered abuse?

Cal,

You might have money left if you'd stop paying your sister for it. After all, family shouldn't charge family! That just ain't right, civil, or Christian!

Peace, love, and ain't it about time to bring back the mini-skirt again!

The J-Man

Being raised by an Italian mother on the Mexican border made me realize that entrees are not edible without jalapenos, onions, green chilis, or garlic. Hence, I am the J-man.

Maybe I still got two wishes left or something! Yesterday, I saw two girls in mini skirts. Of course, it didn't help matters that they were both about 12 or 13 (my son liked it though).

Let's see, for my other wishes, I want a billion dollars tax free and my body restored to the health and vigor and shape I had when I was 20!

Hmmmm... 13 will get you 20.

And NO Carina, I CAN'T afford the material for a full length skirt now that they canceled my insurance. Dang it! Now everyone will see my hairy legs!

Well, at least you could use a comb to 'tidy up' a bit down there. That'd help.
