Seems like I’ve been gone for a week after visiting The Land of The Buckeyes and The Bearcats. It was pure time travel for me, and I’m still reeling from the odd foggy familiarity of places and people that I hadn’t seen in many decades.
Last Wednesday I was signing some legalwork, and asked what the date was. One person remembered that it was Pearl Harbor Day, while his assistant clarified that it was also Johnny Bench’s birthday. JB and Pete Rose are still revered as Sub-Gods in that region (under Woody Hayes, Sparky Anderson and Paul Brown, of course). But none of that has anything to do with this post.
Someone we all know and love has discounted one of the most popular calendars of all time, and there are hundreds stacked up in the corner of his bedroom available for a small percentage of the original price. The percentage is so low, he’s willing to pay someone to take them off his hands. I think we’ve stumbled upon a great bargain.
“Now available at Lulu.com in time for Christmas and the New Year — the Little Green Footballs 2010 Calendar, featuring 13 beautiful high resolution versions of photographs I’ve posted at LGF. It’s $24.99, Lulu.com handles all the printing and shipping, I get 10 bucks, and they get the difference. Not a bad deal for all involved.”
“Not a bad deal…” if you favor pedestrian snapshots of flat color, a personal world that is utterly bereft of any human face, or snapshots chilled in the crippled sensibility of a person who has “the brain of a bass player” and the eye of an albino cave-dwelling newt.
I took the liberty of copying the image (with the cryptic title “October 2010″) and enlarging it a bit, just to help another fellow blogger sell outdated calendars with bland uninspired amateur photographs on The Overnight Open Thread.
It’s also purely coincidental that we found that image of a WereSlug last night and scheduled it to follow a story about LGF’s Killgore Trout.
The connection might not be obvious to those who don’t know/don’t care about LGF or KT, but for those who are curious, here’s a linky; more on Killgore’s nasty chicanery here. As for slugs, there’s an amazing video here.
But back to the WereSlug. Kid’s got this guy beat by a mile, and I hope he gets all he can eat from KT’s kale patch during The Overnight Open Thread.
