Mambo ... er ... Smart Aleck #5

Smart Aleck Answer #4:
A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store, but she couldn't find one big enough for her family. She asked a stock boy, "Do these turkeys get any bigger?" The stock boy replied, "No ma'am, they're dead."

As you might imagine, the stories of Alecks 1, 2, 3, and 5 are also in Seoh's latest blog post. And they are pretty funny.

Hard Work Pays Off

I've just finished the setup and put a bunch of posts on Laughing Stock, my new blog that pokes fun at the BBC news website's funny photo choices.

I spend tonight developing my latest creation, and while I can't exactly shout "it's alive! it's alive! alive!!!" I am pretty proud of it. And with user involvement, it could become much more alive than it is now.

Oh The Irony

So, I'm deleting my bookmarks and I'll never read Mr. M's journal again. Hopefully, everyone else will do the same, and he'll end up talking to himself — exactly what he deserves for shutting out the feedback of the community.

Remember back when I complained about a blog that stopped allowing comments? Remember when I perdicted that ending commenting would spell demise for his blog? Well, it hasn't. In fact, he's re-enabled comments! Although now added (prison) to his blog title, so maybe that's a condition of his sentence. I dunno. Anyway, the ironic upshot is now you can comment on his comment that says he won't be allowing any any more comments.

But back to no comments spelling demise for blogs ... the Headless Zombie Bunny blog over at http://headlesszombiebunny.blogspot.com/ has died due to just that item. Well, it might have been already dead with a title like that. It's supposed to be a "daily" photoblog of bad BBC Stock Photo choices, the title comes from one of those bad choices. The upshot is, they used to allow comments. On Apr 12, the killed 'em. I've only seen one post after that. My last comment was that they should post some of the stock photo bloopers people posted in the comments. Guess they didn't like that and decided to go hide under a rock or something.
