More Great Moments in Editing


We're coming down to the Christmas wire ... tomorrow is Christmas Eve, and Tuesday is the Big Day! And on Wednesday we go back to work ... #$%!@ no-show Mayan apocalypse.

Well, I have a lot of gifts to wrap and things to do, so how about a pretty low-energy post today - your final edition for 2012 of Great Moments in Editing! Here we go ...

I think I want a second opinion before we go ahead ...


I think the person who wrote this crawler may be looking for other employment opportunities ...


Speaking of human remains, from the Department of Well, Duh! come these two items ...


and ...


I've always found this to work well for me ...


Could this have been the result of a pub crawl gone wrong? ...


Or perhaps too many of those free pictures might have been the culprit ...


'Tis the season to be too quick to call the authorities ...


Perhaps the NRA could ask them nicely not to shoot any of the rest of us, either ...


And finally, no matter how you spell it, Congress could use the treatment ...


And that's it for this day before the day before Christmas. If you're going out shopping today, you're completely nuts. Be careful ... this is the time of year when people brimming with holiday spirit and armed to the teeth with concealed weapons* have been known to shoot other people over possession of a parking space or the last toy on the shelf. The weather isn't the only thing outside that's frightful any more.

If you are on the road this holiday season, drive carefully and - to paraphrase my high-school driving instructor's admonition - always expect a reindeer to jump out in front of the car. If you are flying, good luck ... bring lots of money**.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

** Hope you're enjoying that middle seat you got because you didn't want to pay extra for a "premium" aisle or window seat after paying $750 extra for your luggage. I predict that the next extra fee the airlines will be either a "Personal Space Surcharge" for the privilege of making sure the people on either side of your middle seat are not hugely overweight and occupying half of your seat, too, or a "Guaranteed Seatmate Hygiene Fee" for the privilege of making sure those same people took showers before the flight.

Do we have an upcoming beer shortage that we must be content with a mere souvenir picture of a beer? Blame that on Congress.

And I think that they should get more Port-a-Potties for Sunset Beach.

I hope the person who called the police for the carolers felt like an idiot!

The carolers are probably lucky they weren't shot.

I have to say I laughed really hard at the one about the Human Remains
