Subway strike!

Took me 2 1/2 hours to get to work this morning. The train was 45 minutes late, and it took 15 minutes just to get out of Penn Station. The smokers and I, the only people normally walking up Seventh on days like this, were joined by hordes of commuters rediscovering their feet.

The morning news was full of warnings today: wear a hat, because you lose 40% of your heat through your head. All well and good, but I wish they'd told me where you lose another 35% of your warmth before I chose these assless chaps to wear to work. Southerly winds suck.

Yeah, but just think of all the calories you're going to burn off over the holiday season. You can eat as much turkey, turkey neck, turkey giblets, turkey gravy, dark turkey meat, turkey stuffing, etc. as you want now!

See, here in Seattle our transit workers would never strike...because WE DON'T HAVE ANY!

Verification word: Alacrity

I hear those things are awfully loud...
It glides as softly as a cloud.
Is there a chance the track could bend?
Not on your life, my Hindu friend.
What about us brain-dead slobs?
You'll be given cushy jobs.
Were you sent here by the devil?
No, good sir, I'm on the level.
The ring came off my pudding can.
Take my pen knife, my good man.
I swear it's Springfield's only choice...
Throw up your hands and raise your voice!
Monorail!
What's it called?
Monorail!
Once again...
Monorail!

Hey Peter -

What was that you said about vegetarians being healthier and less sick?

It's OK, we can wait until you're out of the can to respond.
