RANDOM FLICKR BLOGGING # 3776

Monday morning (and after a Sunday twin bill of football games, a tired & lagging one). Tom at If I Ran The Zoo, explains.

1. "3776," uploaded by "bunaen," on September 2, 2005:

The Army's Uncle Fred Wants You recruiting posters don't seem to be helping efforts to meet new quotas.

2. "IMG_3776," uploaded by "sideoutev," on October 31, 2006

Finally, photographic proof of the Wacky Giant Caterpillar that's been sneaking up behind kids and messing up their hair in pictures.

3. "IMG_3776," uploaded by "Elmar & Nina," on June 22, 2006:

I don't even have a caption for this goofy bastard. Shall we open the floor to suggestions? Anyone?

Leave them in the comments and maybe I'll put one under the pic later, or tomorrow morning. Or just ignore my request and leave me hanging! (I can take it.)

***And, the updated caption to this picture comes from, "Anonymous" (man, he's everywhere these days): By the time GW Bush was finally publicly hanged it was only a single French tourist that bothered to show up to witness the event. "Ah, think nothing of it", he was quoted as saying, "we have a long tradition of executing royalty gone bad. Now, could you please move a bit so I can get a better angle? Merci."***

Then Pierre said, "Just hold still for the picture, what do you mean there are 3 giant concrete balls rolling towards me?"

Eh, not so good.

And I can't imagine Fred Schneider doing ads for the military....

Love the giant caterpillar. As for the last one.. a couple of ideas come to mind:

1. Standing at the state line, he wanted to be the first photographer to take a picture from two states simultaneously.

2. While standing and trying to get that perfect shot, the tree's roots grabbed hold of his foot in an effort to make him live with the tree forever.

What? No post from Mike about Hilary tossing her hat into the ring? Guess you're worn out from all that football yesterday.

The B-52 reunion tour fell through. He needed the money.

Worn out, yes. Though football is but one culprit.

As a U2 fan, I hat to admit it, but I'm afraid that the gentleman in the first picture is what Bono is going to look like at 80.

Henry was the last resort, the "goalie," you might call him, in the Soccer of the Souls tournament. He stood near the entrance of the park with his Soul Catcher and dared anyone to pass. Henry ended up collecting more than four hundred and thirty five souls in just two hours one Saturday morning.

Especially with the glasses, and the over-confident pointing at the camera thing.
