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.

Thanks to Miss Janis, who sends me (via The Obscure Store) this ripping tale of modern-day brigandry:
Growling man with sword robs store; suspect arrestedGood to see that some people have their priorities right in life, eh? Well, the name of the place IS Food N FUN--what do they expect!? What about if he didn't have a parrot or an eye patch or a hat, but maybe had a peg leg? A hook hand? What about in lieu of a hat if he had a bandana tied around his head? What about if he had a monkey instead of a parrot? What about if instead of growling he said "avast."
It is a mystery, I suppose. And thus, Iberia Parish Sheriff Sid Hebert becomes the winner of this week's, "Oh, You Think So, Sparky!?" Award, handed out regularly to those with a very firm grasp of the obvious. I wonder if the defense strategy is that it couldn't be the right guy, because what self-respecting pirate drives a car? Why, that crafty buccaneer! Or not. I'm sure no one makes fun of him in there.
