Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)
Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.
This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Our own little Super Bowl-type scandal...
Auto parts ads too racy for three TV stationsWell, Saturday afternoon while I was folding clothes and getting the kids bathed, this came on the UPN station where I was watching Meteor.
It features a buxom young blonde chick with a genuine Southern accent, extolling the junkyard's virtues with a string of groaningly bad double entendres--"Is that a dipstick in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?" "How about THIS pair of headlights?", etc.
It was just stupid and not the least bit clever and all I could think to myself is, "Wow, Channel 68's ad rates are so low even a junkyard can buy time." Catherine was sitting there in the floor waiting to go take her bath, and she looked around at Reba and me sort of sitting their with our mouths agape. "This sure is a stupid commercial!"
Out of the mouth of babes...
