Murder was the case that they gave me

The title: there were some a few years back, pre-renovation.
The feet: we wished to experience how much comfort millions can buy.
The verdict: concrete lounge chairs aren't as relaxing as mesh lounge chairs.

Not a burial mound. Officially.

What a view.

The seats are too low, the table too high. As The Duchess astutely pointed out, it's as if it was designed by someone with an intimate knowledge of gulag dining.

Anti-homeless makeshift boudoir guard rail for your protection.

We've got one, too. See, I'm positive, I'm fucking positive.


This green space looks suspiciously like my high school track.

Well, okay, as long as the ordinances are codified.

"Duchess, what could this miniature table possibly be used for?"

"Doing a line." True story. The conversation, silly rabbits.
We can't afford drugs on a Peon's salary.

The garbage can of the future -- today!

Viking booty storage.

Avian industriousness elicits both applause & tears.

Thinking caps, kids. What's wrong with the following pair of images:



Clevelandia Tilt-A-Whirl.

When low on funds, snark is an acceptable substitute.

False advertising.


Attend? I'd much rather disregard them.



Lack of snow makes me seasonally affected & disorderly.

More scare tactics.


Because we're twelve years old.

Looking glass Wicky Wacky thumbs up with gusto.

Proof positive the rich elites do care about the homeless.

Not a burial mound.

But a grassy knoll, Shirley...

P.S. I hope Clevelandia also had a tantrum over the size of their Stonehenge.

The lower case "a" is so the stone carver can get a 2d bite at the apple. "OOPS, looks like we need a new stone!"

Pavement begs for relevance here:

BB, sometimes they even ask for money. Don't they know that's the privileged domain of the already wealthy?

if, can't answer that, for I don't know who they are, or what they were doing.

karl of the österreich, then where's the correct stone? This requires an investigation, and those aren't free! I should ask the city council for some scratch.

Duchess has cool boots!

The monolith? I thought it was Clevelandia's half-dome.

White table? Chess. Or feet.

Aren't the Browns upset that the Vikes have established Vinland in their territory?

Demeur said...

So that's where they were going to build the new Indians' stadium. They have the mound but forgot the stadium or is that where Jimmy Hoffa is buried?

Randal Graves said...

jim, oh sure, Duchess this, Duchess that, but not one compliment about my twenty buck sneakers.

I suck at chess, and I don't think Arkham Horror's board will fit.

The Browns' upset-nesse is kind of moot, given how ineffective they'd be, though I suppose we did win one more game than they. Yay!

demeur, why does everyone assume that Hoffa was buried and didn't become part of the mulligan stew in the campus cafeteria?

Enjoyed this pictorial journey immensely. AND you got me to go watch pieces of Spinal Tap, which for some reason I have NOT seen, even though I am a big fan of The Mighty Wind. Will On Demand it if possible very soon!

Life As I Know It Now said...

At least you have creative birds in Cleveland!

Tom Harper said...

"Not a burial mound, officially." It's an anthill.

Jim H. said...

I envy you, Mauigril. You get to see it for the first time. Lots of us can quote it line-by-line like Caddyshack or Big Lebowski or Animal House. As good as it gets.

If you need snow we may have some to send you by tomorrow so long as it doesn't turn to rain again.

Randal Graves said...

mauigirl, you know who hasn't seen Spinal Tap? Communists & jihadists.

life, 'tis one way to recycle.

tom, as long as it's not full of these.

susan, kindness is appreciated, but look up!

Lisa Golden said...

This was like a trip without leaving my chair.

No recreational drugs needed either. Where are we going next?

S.W. Anderson said...

"Duchess, what could this miniature table possibly be used for?"

Leg wrestling matches, obviously.

Ok, so glad I looked past the sports post up at the top there. These are good. Looks like this blog's gonna last.
