Haikuna Matata

Lion cubs eat meat.

Could not live on bugs alone.

Not enough protein.

That part always bothered me about The Lion King.  Also, as if it’s not painfully obvious, I just had to find a way to make that pun.

Snapple Cap

January 7, 2011

I promised myself I would spare y’all my next Snapple cap, but then this happened…

I can’t help myself.  And for some odd reason, this one made me laugh.

Happy Friday!

Great Quote

January 4, 2011

“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make art – write or draw or build or sing or live only as you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”

Neil Gaiman

Name Game

January 3, 2011

I need your help.  This idea may very well go over like a screen door on a submarine, but I trust you guys.  Y’all probably like submarines and would not want said submersed vessel to sink like a rock.  Right?  So if this doesn’t work, I’ll be forced to put a screen door in place of the standard air-tight entry hatch.  It’s a really nice submarine.  The interior is very homey and the outer hull is a pleasant color blue with white accents.  I would like to paint a smiley face on the front end, when and if I have the time.  And the sooner you save it, the sooner I’ll stop abusing this tired, old analogy.

So it’s a new year, new me, etc etc.  So let’s start this party off with some honesty.

I have grown to hate “The Rambling J – The Life and Times of a Hillbilly Yankee“.  I don’t ramble much, I am named J, but “Hillbilly Yankee” doesn’t quite fit me.  I was never much of a Hillbilly to begin with, and I became a Mets fan after being brainwashed by Roomie.  So I’m looking for suggestions, inspirations and/or donations to benefit a new name for this corner of the internet.  Some of you have been reading for a while, some are newer, some just laugh at how I assume I have more than 15 readers.  Either way my blog needs a new name.  Any assistance and input you can provide would be very welcome.

C’mon guys.  Do it for the submarine!  And the analogies!!
