The malapropisms of Yogi Berra…

Baseball fan I don’t claim to be…I won’t even try, though I’ve enjoyed a game or two in my time…

Yogi Berra, of baseball fame, is listed in Blount’s book as a classic candidate for having perfected the art of creating malapropisms…

“If you come to a fork in the road, take it.”

I used to live next door to a fire hydrant factory. You couldn’t park anywhere near the place.

One of the funniest cat videos I’ve ever seen….
Check it out for a good laugh to start the weekend…

It is Friday and that guy who did the Werner Herzog videos on YouTube hasn’t done anything in ages. So, instead, here are cats playing Pattycake courtesy of my wife.  Pattycake is a game of sorts, right? Oh, and the cats, they talk.  But you kind of have to talk to play Pattycake. Our cats don’t have the patience for this sort of thing, though one of our cats will play fetch if he is in the moo … Read More
