done tomorrow – familiar?

Sounds like more RoadWork!

And The Great Hamburger Scam!


  • (The ‘Wimpy’ Reference in the similarly named haiku just posted is more fully detailed therein.  But I did discover a discrete liking for the notion the bowler-be-hatted short, fat cartoon who cropped up in Popeye The Sailor Man cartoons of my youth acted in much the same way as an earlier Falstaff might appear in the midst of a William Shakespeare tragedy.  Of course, Olive Oyle’s plight, being tied to a pair of parallel railroad tracks with a train on its way – drat that dastard bully whose name continues to elude, you know the one, a big fat brute *Bruto?* *Brutus?* Begins with a “B” anyway*, with the scruff of full-circle beard above his chin and below his putative nose who always took a dive after our hero had his pipe-turn-can-opener to extract the spinach through selfsame pipe and thus SaveTheDay.  Sweat Pea was the only sane person in the whole show: per usual!)
