The many dig their own graves with a fork... this dude has the opportunity to drown in that mix. I hope the cat meets the same fate.

Yup! Well, I thought it was OK, and both my cell-mates¹ looked at it and said "…well, looks like at least the cat won't starve!"

There's a man who is comfortable in his own skin. BTW, it's nice to see you active again, Ken.

It was lol funny to me. Just the title alone was worth a snort.

Thanks for the pic. I've been on a low carb diet. Yesterday was pie day. I had a slice of lemon meringue pie at 1100. I circled back at 1300 and got the last piece. I feel so bad. It was SO good.

Nothing wrong with this pic-The guy is preparing himself for the long row home in a boat that is not well enough balanced- that cat needs to get further forward put the ballast in the right spot.

If I buy a very large cat and a very small boat...that could be me in a few years.

Damn, I gotta start getting serious about cycling again.

The book has been a bestseller, the movie has 9 Academy Award nominations and it just won a Golden Globe, but it just occurred to me that some people might not have heard of it.

Ah...now it makes more sense, Ken. When it comes to recent movies I'm a total ******. I don't get out much.

Yes, and thank you. I found it hilarious! I forwarded the pic to my daughter who has read the book and seen the movie. She's pretty sober sometimes so hopefully it will help her lighten up.

The book was written by a Canadian. Yann Martel once sent our Prime Minister (Steven Harper, in case you're not tuned in to basic Canadian statistics) a book a month that he thought he should read in order to make him a more well-rounded, understanding, and empathetic leader. Obviously, it didn't work!
