Have you ever seen the Where's Waldo book series? Basically looking for a guy in a red and white striped hat and shirt in really busy drawings (they also have other hidden objects). Basically a variation of the I-Spy game.

The rest of the amusement is a borderline political comment. The new administration claimed that the inauguration crowd was the largest in history. There's been some push back on that.

Congrats on 1000 posts BugDog!

the amusement is a borderline political comment
I agree and the whole series of posts should probably have been "deep sixed".

So if everybody could just leave the "third rail " of the election alone, it'll save me the trouble of zapping a bunch of posts.

Thanks

Hans

I guess I'm not intelligent enough to see the difference between satire and political controversy. :D In reality, I was waiting for that joke and related comments to get clobbered by a Moderator. :wink: I think a large amount of tolerance was given!

Andrew, quite the contrary. Are you aware of the "Dunning–Kruger effect"? You're obviously on the right side of the IQ bell curve. :D :bye:

And now for something completely different (might already have turned up).

Guy discussing new year's resolutions.

All my friends have got themselves pedometers or fitbits for the new year. Me, I am taking things step by step. I got a movement detector first and I'll see how it goes from there.

It reminds me of a similar joke:

A man got the "Abs of Steel" video, but found it too difficult. He exchanged it for the "Abs of Foam Rubber" video...

Not a Joke but humorous.
A shop I walk by has a sign on the door which reads: "unattended children will be given a double espresso and a puppy to play with".
