Just about done with a new custom theme. Still a few tweaks left to do before I’m happy with it, hopefully in the next couple of days.

In the meantime, here’s a couple of interesting links from the past few days…

p.s. Nope, this blog isn’t quite dead yet. I’m still planning to eventually move it to a new blog platform (WordPress) wrapped in a shiny new template, hoping that will spark my blogging muse a little more often. We’ll see… ;-)

Comments Off on Silly Rabbi…

Silly Rabbi…

While daydreaming at work earlier today, I remembered the punchline to a joke that Rusty the T.A. told before one of my computer science classes when I was a college sophomore.

(No, I have absolutely no idea what brought that to mind.)

Thanks to a little google-fu, I now proudly present the rest of the joke…

Once in a land far, far away there lived a group of people called Trids. The Trids were happy except for the huge ogre that lived on the mountain. The ogre would periodically terrorize the Trids.

The Trids tired of the ogre and sought to reason with him. They thought one of their religious leaders would be a good intermediary. So a group of Trids and their minister went up the mountain and before they could even say one word the ogre kicked them down the mountain. Not being dismayed the Trids thought that maybe the ogre was Catholic, so they sent another delegation, this time led by the local priest. But alas, as they approached the ogre he once again kicked them all down the mountain.

The Trids were upset until they thought that perhaps the ogre was Jewish. Unfortunately, no Trids were Jewish, so they wrote to the people of another land and asked them to send a Rabbi to help them with the ogre. The Rabbi arrived and led a delegation of Trids up the mountain. The ogre saw them coming and kicked all of them, except for the Rabbi, down the mountain. The Rabbi, having been told of the previous expeditions, wondered why he alone had not been kicked down the mountain, so he asked the ogre. The ogre laughed and replied:

“Silly Rabbi, kicks are for Trids!”

What’s in the box? Another box! (Sorry, private joke. ;-))

Simon’s Cat

Simon’s Cat is a series of short animated cartoons produced by Tandem Films exploring the unique relationship between a cat and it’s owner/servant.

The most recent episode in the series just came out this week, but I’m going to start with the first because it’s my favorite so far…

Reminds me of someone, but I can’t quite place it… ;-)
