Garfield’s Halloween Special October 31, 2014

Filed under: Funny,Neat,Stuff,TV — Fr. Victor Feltes @ 8:00 am

This is one of my favorite Halloween memories. It was a very formative cartoon for me. Still to this day, as a rule, whenever I get frightened by something, I run at least five laps around it before darting away in terror.

I wish I could have interviewed that 110 year-old-man while he was still alive. I’m sure he had some great stories about the Pirate Wars of 1885. I would have liked to ask him why he was hanging-out in the cabin that Halloween night if he didn’t want to stay there until the pirate-ghosts arrived. Perhaps he was a castaway and the serendipitous arrival of Garfield and Odie’s boat was his first chance to escape that isolated river-island. Or perhaps he was oath-bound to protect the treasure (like the knight in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) until his former crewmates returned. I wonder how those pirate-ghosts ended up spending all that treasure.

I didn’t know what “Context Clues” were, but this helped me to figure it out. Word.

Putting Two & Two Together On Dress Sizes September 13, 2014

Men: This post may blow your mind.
Women: This post will make you laugh.

Yesterday, I learned something from my friend Colleen that I had never heard before: Ladies’ adult dress sizes only come in even numbers (0, 2, 4, 6…) while junior ladies’ dress sizes are odd numbers (1, 3, 5…)! The difference between the two takes into account the curves of maturity. Previously to this, I had no idea.

But ladies, before you judge and mock me, ask yourselves, “How many yards does an onside kick have to go?”

 

“Stranger Than Fiction” September 12, 2014

Filed under: Funny,Movies,Neat,Stuff — Fr. Victor Feltes @ 8:00 am

Will Farrell’s “Stranger Than Fiction,” is surprisingly quirky and beautiful. All of the actors (Emma Thompson, Dustin Hoffman, Maggie Gyllenhall, & Queen Latifah) are excellent. I would post a preview here, but (like Ewan McGregor’s “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen,”) this movie is better seen cold. You can watch it now for free on Crackle.
