You are being otterly ridiculous.

...onions, fish, locust beans, rice, honey, sugar cane, poultry (spice?), grapes, dates, artichokes, lentils, leeks, (mumble-mumble) meal...

...you'd be hopping out of the harbour, too ... what wine goes best with this?

J— said...

It's like a metronome.

mikey said...

Umm, sorry to intrude, Mr. Clyde, I know this is the time of day you have your "treatments", but I just have one quick question and I'll be out of here before they can get the furry suits out of the plastic dry cleaner bags.

Shouldn't there be splashes?

Splashes.

You know, water getting sprayed up in the air?

I'll be going now...

J— said...

One little drop of water hits the artichokes container. Watch for it.

mikey said...

I don't think that's water. I think that's the Homeland Security radiation detector installed on that container indicating some suspicious emissions from the artichokes.

Now, this could be nothing but the naturally occurring decay of quantum artichoke particles, but hopefully somebody's gonna check it out...

J— said...

Or maybe it's a sniper's shot fired from a helicopter up above in an attempt to send a message to Eric Cantor by way of the container with the Star of David on it.

J— said...

They missed, but Cantor knows where they were aiming.

mikey said...

As I understand the process of Cantor-Intimidation, the process would work in the opposite fashion, where the HELICOPTER with the star of david would be fired on from a farm road outside of town, with the slug following it's ballistic parabola right into an office that Cantor has used before...

It's the DHS Manatee.

A timing adjustment would really upset N__B. Which is what the internet is all about.

Do not be fooled by the time-lapse woodcuts. Things are actually happening veeerrry veeerrry slllooowwwly.

I have not yet graduated to the Gimp and am still using a crippled demo version of Photoshop, so I know nothing of these frame-level timing adjustments whereof you speak. We are simple peasant folk.

J— said...

Can you put one of these pop-up images in a blogger header? It's for a friend from LA.

mikey said...

We are simple peasant folk.

Oh. I hadn't realized.

In that case I offer you these lovely shiny trinkets in exchange for all your young daughters.

Mr. Peasant, this is a one-time offer. You can't afford to pass this up...

I want to offer my favourite surf break to appease my Overlord's wrath, should it be visited upon me for not enjoying tax relief and mining.

nubsp, what's the hell is your problem it's spelled correctly isn't it?

mikey said...

Thanks Tigris.

That's a bookmark fer sure...

tigris said...

Oh hot damn, looking forward to Mikey animations!

Really all that's needed is to open the image. Under the Windows menu you see Layers, Channels, Paths and you make sure you can see that, and that the image is in the drop-down menu up top. When you see the layers you'll see the default timings, which can be changed by typing. You have to hit Enter for each layer you change though.

Word verification: ablerify!

mikey said...

Oh, goddam it.

I got cous cous in my hair.

Um, oh. Sorry,

I'm banned, right?

Before I go, can someone recommend a way to get cous cous out?

Dammit

Substance McGravitas said...

Geez, you're the explosives guy.

Captcha says subhog.

Smut Clyde said...

I find it easier to get food in my beard, where it is more accessible for later snacks.

mikey said...

I ended up using peanut butter and banana.

Hell, babe, it was almost desert.

Gotta remember to wear some kinda chefs hat or something...

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

cous cous in your HAIR?

That's some enthusiastic cooking, that is.

mikey said...

In my own defense, it IS really long hair too.

But yes, there was enthusiasm.

Also...

Not a kraken, but it will do rather nicely.

Gargantuan walruses are a finite good.

fish said...

You wouldn't happen to have a phone number for the sea beast? I'm asking for a friend.

merc said...

...made me laugh all over my 'puter head...

The Invisible Hand is strongly in favour of investing in Walrus Cthulhu futures.

Cantor knows where they were aiming.

Turns out to be Cantor dust.
