Reminds us of a joke about an Eskimo. Cool cause of icy specificity…not racially insulting, could be a Lapp or any polar dude with a broken snowmobile. The repairman tells him: “Man, looks like you blew a seal…” and polar dude responds: “Oh, no! Not at all! That’s just frost on my moustache!”
From the 125th Anniversary Edition of National Geographic. Congrats to an ancient and noble photographic publication!

United Santa Assault in the USA! Peace. Harmony. Joy. Community. These were just a few of the horrifying threats scrawled by an Occupy movement Santa and some of his little helpers in sidewalk chalk at the State Capitol in Austin, Texas. More at the Free Keene site, New Hampshire’s on-line destination for liberty activism.

One of this blog’s most popular posts asked whether San Francisco Giants pitcher Brian Wilson is gay and kinky. Click here. He’s been known to offer “sugar” to the mysterious leather-clad “Machine” and now he seems to be dating Sasquatch. Are they one in the same? The Beard and the Squatch showed up together for the ESPY Awards. Is the bearded pitcher advocating furry sex for butch guys? Hey, there were furries (or “plushophiles”) at IML this year. That would be International Mr. Leather, not the Illinois Municipal League. I’m not saying having furries at a Leather event is a good thing or a bad thing…but it IS a thing! For Brian Wilson at the Beef Bar, click here.
