Someone else's email

A friend of mine is a lawyer in the U.S. She is funny. I'll call her "Emily'. That is not her real name. (Yeah, it's totally her real name.) She sent me this email this morning:

I saw a car with the license plate WOLFCUB. I nearly pointed it out to my Dad, who was with me, then saw the " = " sticker next to it and decided it was a thing. I texted my friend Joey:

Emily: "What's a wolfcub?"
Joey: "Dunno. White Fang?"

At this point, I tell him where I saw it.

Joey: "Oh God. It's 20-35 year old guys, very hairy, lots of muscles - as opposed to bears, cubs and otters."

Emily: "I know you didn't just internet that."
Joey: "I knew. Was just hoping you meant something innocent and cuddly."

Ever since, I've had otters and polar bear cubs on the brain. Which I should. I keep reading news and thinking that I'd be happier if only I could remove my brain through an eye socket.

It is also used as a name for a Cub Scout. Give your bleeding brain a break. It was probably owned by some psychotic Cub Scout Leader.

Much better.

I used to like watching "Sell This House" until I read that the designer, Roger Hazzard, is a "bear". Damn you, internet.

I used to watch that show. Roz will chime in shortly to admit she did too.

I realized Roger's inclinations, but you have indeed enlightened me as to degree.

Damn you, jmd.

I always something wasn't quite right with that Roger and the girl was just way too perky for somebody who was stuck painting other people's houses, although I never believed she really did much work becuase she was never dressed properly for painting. (or she's a much better painter than I am, it is very clear what clothes I wear when the painting tools come out)
Which is the reason why my new bathroom is tiled everywhere! No paint required.

Did you ever notice how Roger's eyes light up when another "bear" comes on the show. Also, ever wonder why so many of their homeowners tend to love cuddly toys too?

one of my words is "difficat". Aren't all cats difficats?

Yes, they are, but that's why we love them.

Mr. B... given recent press regarding Boy Scouts, it is entirely possible that in the once sacred Baden-Powell community it has a completely different meaning. Like some priests are considered Holey Fathers...

My wife is convinced I have tourette syndrome. Some 'friends' apparently agree.
