Tuesday links

Seemed time for another “lite” links collection. I closed all my bad-news tabs. To hell with them. Today I bring you mostly good news and puppies. Oh, and a moose.

    Could this be the ultimate test of stoicism; someone steals something that you cherish and your first reaction is to think about how much they will be enjoying it?

    Even though I do try to appreciate Stoicism I might have a ways to go yet because my first thought would be to hope they choke on it!

    Re. Moose: Happened to my Uncle in Portland, Maine (45 years ago). Did not call police. Filled freezer with moose meat.

    Not only do dogs curl their tongue backwards when they drink, but when horses lick a salt block, they lick with the underneath side of their tongue. Bet you’ve always wondered about that. 😀

    So many things I never knew! Never needed to know, either. But that’s okay. Having a head full of trivia never hurt any writer anywhere. (That’s why so many Jeopardy! champs are writers of one kind or another.)

    If the plural of goose is geese, why ain’t the plural of…

    And from Mason Williams’ “Them Poems” we have:

    “Them Moose goosers

    How about them Moose goosers, Ain’t they cluse?
    Up in them boondocks, goosin’ them moose
    Goosin’ them huge moose, goosin’ them tiny,
    Goosin them medlin’ moose in they hinny!
    Look at them Moose goosers, Ain’t they dumb?
    Some use an umbrella, some use they thumb.
    Them obtuse Moose goosers, sneakin’ through the woods,
    pokin’ they snoozey moose in they goods,
    How to be a Moose gooser? It’ll turn you puce;
    Get your gooser loose, and rouse a drowsy moose!”

    (Sorry. Just another character defect.)
