Some unscheduled days with 'Ol Pookers.

I take it he'll be suitably restrained so he can't nip to the office while the bird is in the oven? :)

Yes. Unlike in previous years, I shall not make that mistake again!!!

A Nebraska football player, concerned about being late for practice, asked someone on campus what time it was.

The fellow student looked down at his watch and said, "It's 3:15."



The football player, with a puzzled look on his face replied "You know, it's the weirdest thing...

I have been asking that question all day, and each time I get a different answer."

Looks like the Golden Bears tried to make a game of it, but they let the spoiled children get too far ahead in the first quarter.

That was a TERRIBLE game!!! We stopped watching before half time because it was so tragic.

My mom has a whole set of those CorningWare dishes. They're great. Hers are the old-school type that can go straight from freezer to oven.


My mom had those casserole baking dishes too. I think she still has several from her set.

After a rough practice session a Nebraska football player goes to see the team doctor.

"Doc", he says, "My body hurts wherever I touch it."

"Really?" questions the doctor. "Show me."

The football player takes his finger, pushes his elbow and screams in agony.

He pushes his knee and screams.

He pushes his ankle and screams and so on it goes.

"Young man" says the doctor, "Your finger is broken."

Just curious, what the bet is this year.

Actually, we haven't made a bet so far this year. In the past I know that one year Eric and I had to pay up a box of homemade cookies and one year Scarecrow had to buy us hats. One year Scarecrow had to sing the Wisconsin fight song, but we ended up excusing that debt because he had a bad cold for much of the winter. (Those midwestern winters are brutal! Eric remembers them well.) For some weird reason I don't think that Wisconsin was scheduled to play Nebraska last year, because I don't remember doing our annual trash talking in 2013. Until you mentioned it, Ulibelle, I think that we just plain forgot about the annual accompanying wager. I don't even know who is favored to win on Saturday and by how much.

Cowboy, would you care to make the game a bit more "interesting"?

Yes, it's that time of year again...time to WHACK A BADGER!

I was just terrible at that game! That must mean that it is mighty difficult to whack a badger!




Nom, nom, nom, nom...

How do you keep a Nebraska quarterback engaged in classroom material?



Write ‘Please turn over’ on both sides of a piece of paper.

Did you hear about the tragic fire in the Husker university library?



All twenty books burned, and fifteen of them hadn't even been colored yet.

Not so. Genetics favors dark coats over the rarer lighter ones.

Yes, now. But if more and more blonde and cinnamon raccoons survive to reproduce themselves because "cars" are largely eliminated as their "predators", then it is logical to assume that over time lighter coats on raccoons will become more common.

I think everybody is overlooking a very obvious advantage of being blond. Better visibility in car headlights at night. You see them lots faster than their darker brethren.

Assuming that cars are the biggest killer of raccoons then we can expect to see more and more blond raccoons.

Good point. Yes, being less likely to be hit by a car would definitely be an evolutionary advantage. I would guess that feline and canine distemper take out as many raccoons as cars do, assuming you count "kit mortality" in the figures. Still, cars are definitely a significant threat to urban wildlife.

Raccoons, being nocturnal, tend to den and sleep during the day so I'm not sure lighter colored fur would be an advantage in a drought.

And cause of the drought, blond raccoons may have an advantage over their darker relatives, maybe...

How so, Vic?
