I've seen just a couple of these before, including The Faith Tones. With those hairdoos, how could I help but search on them:

All of the women were trained church musicians, accomplished pianists and organists, and were members of the Lottie Moon Missionary Baptist Church in Winston-Salem NC. Their combined talents, along with their availability, proved to be quite productive. They quickly became a much sought-after group among numerous Southern Baptist churches often lacking in talented or inspirational musical devotionals in the area.

…the original members of The Faith Tones performed in hundreds of non-denominational churches across the Southeastern and Southern U.S. for the next eight years up until 1972.

The last known documented performance of The Faith Tones took place on October 26, 1971 during a week-long revival celebration at the Tyro Baptist Church in Lexington, North Carolina.

Wait.. what? You've only now been introduced to ST:TAS? I kinda envy you. It's the second-best ST ever, being as it's really just an extension of TOS.

What's Adam Strange going to do to figure out who's who? Hit them with his blaster on stun? Oh, well, I'll find out when I read the story. ... uh ... oh, no...

Keith Olbermann - I watched almost four minutes of this, thinking I'd see whatever he had to say about his giving up his show, but his Trumpphobic rant came first. Since each point he was trying to make was more ludicrous and fantastic than the one before it, I thought I'd better pull the plug before my brain caught whatever virus his has. Poor fellow.

“I think what most people find offensive is Sen. Warren lying about her heritage to advance her career,” she [Sanders] told reporters.

Dang, that girl does get right to the heart of things. How are the Dems going to go after Trump on this without dragging out all Fauxcahauntus's skeletons? Bwahaha.

The rock in the picture isn't really Uranium, though. It's Kryptonite. Perfectly safe for indigenous earthlings. ;)

Ting! Been thinking, I see you here all the time but we don't much interact. I should "Like" your comments more. (heh) Anywhoo, belated Happy Thanksgiving!

Whacking Day?

Heh- in my browser, I can easily feed a highlighted word or phrase to any of several search engines. It's become such a habit, it's weird to be reading something actually printed and not be able to click and search on something. Whether it's some celeb name I didn't recognize, or just to check the pronunciation on a word, all the world's knowledge is just, you know, right here!

Better than the Junior Woodchuck's Guide.

Whacking Day is a Simpsons reference. Something Grampaw celebrated back when they wore onions on their belts in the fashion of the day, I think. The term just popped into my head and I had to check where I got it from! :D

Just thought of something else to be #ThankfulFor...

The person a heartbeat away from the Presidency is Mike Pence, not that miserable gnome Hillz ran with.

Also thought, earlier today, that I'm even thankful for ol' KJ, the Hillary fanboi, because that blog led me to PoliNation and Bluebird, which I might otherwise never have encountered!

PP: Nothing else to look forward to for four months but cold,ice and snow.

Awwww, whattabout Valentine's Day? Groundhog Day? Whacking Day? You don't get together with family to celebrate these major holidays?

Mmmmm. Groundhog.

Just for the record, enjoying blue skies and temperature in the 70s right now. I truly am not looking forward to winter weather. At least I'm not up there in the frozen midwest!! :D

Have I mentioned lately how thankful I am for Pistol Pete? Great post for Turkey Day! Makes me smile, and I can sure use one.

I am thankful for the folks at PoliNation who bring the news and views, the fun and facts, the spirit of health and happiness. Chrissy, Pete, bluebird, and staff and commenters alike, who could not be grateful for PoliNation.

It's late. We had feast and family. Got to hold and play with and feed my new grandbaby. And five kinds of pie.

I've had worse days. :)

Wanna know what I'm really thankful for?

You, bluebird of bitterness. You as we know you through your wonderful website.

Also, pie. I'm thankful for pie.

Didn't do accents. Just read it like an American reporter reading a Brit story. Staging this would be fun. Wonder if our bank would let us film it there? :D

Speaking of mixing styles (lame segue)...

We have one month to go on our Classic DC Covers wall calendar. This month's was the great Flash-Superman race cover (Superman #199, 1967) with art by Murphy Anderson and Carmine Infantino. The mix of their distinct styles reminds me of covers here.

15 Impossible Superhero Crossovers (That Actually Happened) - meh team-ups compared to what we're used to here, but more proof Ross taps a vein (daily!) everyone enjoys.

That was really great. I read it aloud, slowly and seriously, to Milady Webworker. She LOL'd heartily. "I did not see that one coming!"

'Nother amazing collection, bob! Most new to me, but a few I've seen before: I think College/Weed is among the most ancient meme classics - might've even seen it on CompuServe before there was a Web. Maybe not. :) Still funny, and you've given it good company.

"They only see the headline in any story and accept whatever they are told without question." That's no exaggeration, folks!

Milady Webworker reads deeply and broadly. She knows the knews! :)

Her childhood friend is now an actress whose name you might recognize.

While Milady managed to escape the atheistic thought-ghetto of Leftist Chicagoism in which she was raised, practically all of her old friends and family remain not just left but hard core left. As you can imagine, Milady rarely talks politics with them, which of course can be a real strain because with most of them (as you know) everything is politics.

Years ago, Milady was on the horn with her famous friend, and of course friend veered into politics. For the sake of friendship, Milady actually shaded the truth, demurring as if she didn't know much about things.

Famous friend scolded, "All you need to do is read the headlines! This has become a running gag with us ever since.

Never mind the "continued on page 20" where they buried the actual (and headline-contradicting) news in the 47th paragraph. Just read the headline!

And I don't think she meant Breitbart!! :D

"I did a post yesterday that mysteriously disappeared. I got it back, then this morning it was gone again."

I don't want to get all technical, but we computer experts call that the "Bob at NSA messing with us again" syndrome.


Gasoline in a grocery bag: when you think Stupid has surely bottomed out, you always find you're nowhere near the bottom. Wonder if one of them was smoking while doing this?
