That, in case you don’t recognize it, is the Three Man Globe of Death. There are three – 3! – motorcycles zooming around in there. It’s been the finale of our local circus for years.

And you know what that means – the circus is here and summer is officially over. The circus is the last event on our annual calendar of events, and it’s always a nail-biter. They don’t decide whether they’re coming to our area until a few days before they actually do.

They operate on a shoestring and each year we worry will be the last. The ringmaster gets older and fatter every time.

But we were spared one more year. Roll on autumn!

Shall we have the Dead Pool tomorrow?

Expresso –

Uh, it’s not that shoestrings are bad per se…. it’s just that Ms. Weaze is worried that this shoestring may be their last shoestring, you see? And with the supply chain being what it is, well…

I’m up for a new sleb DP tomorrow! It would be OK if Stoaty wants to wait until Her Maj gets stowed away for good; that’s Monday if memory serves. But there’s no longer any reluctance on my part.

When somebody operates on a shoestring, what anesthetic do they use? And what sort of operation? Aglet transplant?

What is with all of these votes in favor of a Deadpool, tomorrow?

I thought this web site was an autocracy, damnit!

@steve — Stoaty, our iron-fisted autocrat, demanded — DEMANDED — an answer to her question, “Shall we have the Dead Pool tomorrow?”

And we, her cowering subjects, answered her, figuring it was better to obey than be smacked in the face with a dead non-gray-scale fish. We know our plaice.

Huh. And here I smugly posted how to recover from accidentally make an anonymous comment just a few days ago, then carelessly make one myself, AND MY FIX DOESN’T WORK. Anon at 2:41 was your dumb Uncle.

I’ve never made an anonymous post before. This is a test…

You’re absolutely correct, Unc! Your fix doesn’t work!

(oooo! you have a website?)

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
