Pro Cras – for tomorrow.

Hmmm. Sounds familiar.

Satire is hard to do and easy to misunderstand. It looks like humor, and sometimes it is funny, but it’s supposed to comment on a social problem. Social problems are always touchy; they’re hard to see but when they’re pointed out someone is bound to get angry.

I’m grudgingly appreciative to have my own shortcomings pointed out in such an underhanded manner, damn it.

Wet dog? Really?

Yesterday was the second time I wore my Utilikilt to work. Nothing has been said about it, so I suppose that the Utilikilt is tacitly NASA approved.

Someone from another section asked me in the REAL MEN’s room:

“So what is under those things?”

“Boots.”, says I.

Props to Mickey Sattler for the comeback line. I have several pre-loaded. Mickey’s boot line is one of my favorites.

For $500 you can find out for yourself.
