Whatever You Want to Know. Or Not. We'll See.

What you really want to know is whether or not Congress will extract its head from its posterior, quit firing cheap shots at the political opposition, and do something to fix the economy before we get overtaken by economic powerhouses like Burkina Faso. What you're going to get is more of the same.

But then, that's why you visit good old Uncle Bilbo ... to learn interesting and useful things. Or, at least, things that can help take your mind off all the scary stuff out there.

For this reason ... and because I'm suffering from creative constipation this morning ... let's roll out a topic I haven't used for a few years: Ask Bilbo.

Yes, Dear Readers, this is your opportunity to ask Bilbo anything you want. I will answer all questions that don't involve allegations of past intimate relationships with small animals, my shameful past as a Republican, or my true opinion of S&P, Congress, and the financial mismanagement industry (there are, after all, children who read this blog).

Post your question in the comments, or send an e-mail to bilbo_the_blogger(at)yahoo(dot)com. If I get enough questions, I'll answer them tomorrow. If not, I'll do something else. Whatever.

Operators are standing by ...

Have a good day. Answers to your questions tomorrow.

Bilbo

I have submitted my questions. I am particularly interested in your answer to my 3rd question.

Bilbo said...

Chrissy, I haven't seen your questions yet...and am particularly "interested" in what #3 might be...

What is pi squared?

I've gotten bored with the word verification game. Why?

What kind of drugs has Agnes been on all these years to put up with you? I want some.

How can the great Biblo run out of words. I've always thought of you as a quantitative verbologist.

Do you want to join my new political party, the conservative socialist independents?

@ Mike... Your political party sounds interesting. Is there a party platform yet, or some sort of manifesto? Send it along, okay?

You always have great comics on Saturday. What are your usual sources? How large a collection do you have in your files just waiting for their chance to shine?

My favorite question to ask when people ask for questions - no matter the person or the topic - is "what's the speed of light?" It's especially fun to ask when it's totally irrevelant. I'll admit I've gotten some strange looks...
