Say Hi to Seuss

Sad news from the world of the arts yesterday, as Jan Berenstain, co-creator of the Berenstain Bears series of childrens' books, passed on at the age of 88. Ms. Berenstain and her husband, Stan, were the artists behind the more than 300 well-loved books about a family of overall-wearing bears. Finally, she and Stan (who passed away in 2005) can rejoin forces and team with Theodore Geisel. I'd read that collaboration.

I loved those books.

I celebrate their entire catalog. Even though "berenstain" sounds like something you don't want to find in your underpants.

Dave and I will get cracking on a new song involving the Berenstain Bears' darker side.

Dave, I just need a duo of rhyming couplets . . .

I hope everyone has seen Juan Pablo Montoya crash into a jet dryer truck by now. It is ridiculous.

My name is Juan Pablo Montaya....what do you think he said next as he approached the common obstacle?

TR said...

He probably dropped a couple F bombs, Danimal.

T.J. said...

The six-fingered driver caused the crash, eh Danimal?

Danimal said...

I thought maybe along the lines of..."you fucked up my weekend...prepare to have your jetdryer destroyed."

on another note--the twitter-bots scare me.

Don't forget to wear blue and yellow for leap day. Otherwise you'll get pinched and Leap Day William won't give you any candy.
