The Saturday Picture Show, April 12, 2014

There was a line in "The King of Queens" when someone tells Doug Heffernan that it is possible in this life to have one's own woodburning pizza oven right outside in the back yard.  The look of pure bliss that comes over him at the very THOUGHT of such a wondrous event is unforgettable.  I like to imagine this being in my yard, along with a big glass to catch beer as it rains down from a bountiful Heaven.
Just for comparison's's what it would look like if the United States was on the moon.  Listening to AM talk radio sometimes, I'm not so sure it isn't.
 And they try to tell children that clowns aren't creepy!  Look at this bozo, shoving a gram of sugar down his neck.  And just what does the red on his nose represent?  This is just weird.
 This is a colorized version of a photo of Abraham Lincoln camping with a guy who was a Civil War re-enactor, which makes almost as much sense, or less, than actually fighting in the Civil War.  If the pose seems to leave a coppery taste in your mouth, well, this is the photo that they used to create the Lincoln penny.
Globetrotting travelers will recognize this as the Hotel Grotta Palazzese in Polignano, Italy.  At first, I thought it was a really cool new dining area for a new Wegman's somewhere.  I wonder if the seafood is fresh here?
There's a line in the song "You're From Texas" that goes, "I bet my kale that you hail from Texas."  But this is not a field of kale, no sir.  There's another line in the song that says, "You've got a smile like an acre of sunflowers, and your eyes are a bluebonnet blue."  Well up here in Maryland, we have sunflowers by the acre, but the only bluebonnets we get are on margarine packages, and so here is what an acre of bluebonnets looks like.  George "Van Gogh" Bush is painting some right now as we speak, and nothing can be done about it.
