Inky and Blotchy were Sweethearts and All the News That Isn’t



Inky and Blotchy were sweethearts.

OK, Inky (the octopus) sees a crack in the New Zealand aquarium lid–Bingo!–he’s in the Tasman Sea off Christchurch, trying to remember how to do the whole wild octopus thing.

While Blotchy (the octopus) waits for the mini shrimps they serve at 11.

The question arises, which are you going to be: Itchy or Blotchy?

Anyway, goes to show you how smart octopuses are and how dumb some aquarium workers are. Not all. Some.


Pope takes three Syrian families with him from the Isle of Lesbos, one for washing, one for lawn care, one for show.

In all The Holy See adopted 3 migrant families and Bernie Sanders.

Who just happened to be in the right place at the right time.

You know, when I think of all the rugby sized balls of sperm whale vomit I’ve tossed out.

I thought ambergris was just from the old admonition  ‘put a little ambergris in it.’

A rugby sized ball of sperm whale vomit surprisingly affordable at $100,000 US.

All because a New Zealand couple likes to look for stinky things on the beach while on holiday.

Actually, ‘A Rugby Sized ball of sperm whale vomit’ sounds like a New Zealand High School yearbook caption.


Alaska Airlines buys Virgin, even though Alaska Virgin sounds pretty unlikely.

Paul Ryan singing the same unequivocal song–

I won’t dance

Don’t ask me

I won’t dance

Don’t ask me

I won’t dance

Madam with you.

Unequivocal and unmusical.

It’s the story of my life, too–have to beg me to work.


And, closing with a new feature on the show, Thought For the Day:
