my son, John

Went to bed half dressed, for godsakes.
Next, he'll be diddling dumplings.

Mr. Micawber

He was sure something would turn up, 
but it was always another creditor.

Babba Yagga

She lives in a house atop dancing chicken legs and is surrounded by the bones of the slow. She flies above the treetops in a mortar and pestle, searching for children she can kidnap. She ain't Glinda.

I sent this one to Steph in Belgium, who posted it and asked for help naming it. Wondrous Strange identified her as Babba Yagga and used her in this fine creation.


How health insurers see us.

Davy Jones

fathoms deep in the drink,
tangled in rigging,
welcoming sailors.

Flash mobs are not a recent phenomena. The Wobblies were there first and arrived without benefit of text messages. When one of their members (like Orrin Pappas here) was arrested for exercising his right to free speech, word spread like wildfire, and hundreds of Wobblies would show up at once. Since free assembly was also a crime, they'd all be rounded up and jailed as well. The costs to cities and towns was so great, the police would have to release them, but they would refuse to go until all were freed. A highly effective strategy, if not exactly as much fun as a zombie crawl or a pillow fight.

Happy Labor Day.
