Rhetorical questions and answers

Blogging will be light to nonexistent from today on through the weekend, as I will be in Boston for the MIT Mystery Hunt. "Six Things" will update sometime on Monday, but until then, may I recommend you visit some of my fine fellow bloggers for your entertainment needs?

Need a dose of crankiness? Visit Planet Gordon and read about inconsiderate people at the post office. While you're there, get updates about his new book, The Engaged Groom, which I believe I may be quoted in somewhere.

Do you care about advertising? Read Encyclopedia Hanasiana and find out how much more Jim Hanas cares about it than you.

How do you tell if a mouse is depressed? Dangle it by its tail, of course. And if you don't know what part of the Stay Free! website to read after that, the blog has some suggestions.

How long has it been since you've wasted several hours in a row playing Weboggle? Oh, you'd finally kicked the addiction until I mentioned it again? Whoops, sorry!

Finally, there's always the Anti-Caption Contest, on the still-not-redesigned-but-at-least-being-updated-again Radosh.net. Daniel did miss a week on the Anti-Caption Contest, so I think I'll retroactively fill in for him here. Please suggest the worst possible caption for the following cartoon (and I will attempt to approve your comments as time permits):


Some captions to start you off:

"I should probably have mentioned I'm HIV-positive."

"I'm sorry, Larry, I thought this would be sexy. Do we still have the receipt for the costume?"

"Really, there's nothing wrong with your fangs. Of course they're long enough. Now come back to bed."

It's curtains for you, Mabel! Curtains!!

No, I still prefer vertical blinds to curtains.

And here I thought you were always getting up in the middle of the night to look at internet porn.

Not tonight, dear, my iron is low.

"I know it's hard to wait. But aren't we taking an awful risk, Sam, by not waiting for the Senate Judiciary Committee to vote on your nomination first, even though many Congress-watchers are of the opinion that they are likely to split along party lines?"

"Oh, Dracula, I never thought a dashing vampire like you could fall in love with a woman with a single fist-sized eye in the middle of my forehead like me!"

"In or out?! IN OR OUT!? I'm freezin' over here!"

Hey! No one here has made the obvious (and crude) joke?

"You vant me to suck your ... vhat?"

I guess you all have taste or something.

"Yes, yes, I see -- your hand is in fact visible through the window pane. But that only makes it all the more puzzling to me why you aren't visible in a mirror. Please explain it again."

Predicted real winner: some sort of hickey joke. Is that the black thing that she's pointing at on her face?

Please don't go! I'm sorry, I know I should have told you about my mastectomy sooner.
