Loyal reader(s?) no doubt noticed that we took an unscheduled two-week break from posting critter pics. Why? No real reason. This is post #1023 (658 critter pics and 365 kitten pics) and after doing a thousand daily pics with only a break to move across country, we just decided “Hey, let’s just not for a week!” Then on “post day,” when we block out most of the posts for the week and decide what pictures to use, we realized that we’d failed to really get any new ones worth a damn. So we waited another week. It’s been nice. It’s also been weird, because it’s such a part of our routine to write and check our posts each day.
Anyway, that’s neither here nor there, because break time is OVER. That reminds me of an old joke:
A nasty bastard dies and meets Satan in a room with three doors. Satan explains, "I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that you have to spend eternity behind one of these doors. The good news is that you can peek behind each before you choose." N.B. opened the first door and saw a room full of people, burning in agony. Behind the second door he saw a room full of people being tortured by demons. Behind the last door, he saw a room full of people standing waist-deep in shit and sipping coffee. "Door #3," he said smugly. He headed for the coffee as Satan closed the door. A few minutes later the door opened again. Satan stuck his head in and said, "Coffee break's over maggots, back on your heads!"
Oscar would find this completely acceptable.
He already spends the majority of his life on his head, as you can see.
