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.

My Strategy for Winning?

Well, you have to train hard, and you have to have a clear idea of the goal you're trying to achieve. Do this, and with a little bit of luck on being first out of the chute, then maybe one day you, too, will be able to win the prestigious Outside the Beltway Caption Contest!

It's actually been a while--I seem to miss it when Doc Joyner first puts up the pictures, and by the time I see it all the funny lines have already been posted. But some days, the clouds part and you get there right on time, and, well, it reminds me of that day in 1969, when thousands of my compatriots and I descended on Max Yasgur's farm in upstate New York. I remember it as if it were yesterday--me, and String, and Blossom--all arriving in our beat up Microbus. We paid a man $3 and a bud of really good C-bo to paint a psychadelic picture of soup on the side and...yes? You there, back row.

"Mr. Oglesby, isn't it true that in 1969, you were seven years old, and you have in fact, never even been to New York?"


See, this stuff just writes itself.

Anyway, thanks to James! I'll be on the lookout for the next one, fer sure.
