A Little Joke and Some Music

To brighten your Friday:


Credit goes to Mollusc who first invented this joke with blue math rods.



I'm really enjoying this song since first hearing it yesterday. The refrain never fails to crack me up. I'm also LOVING Johnathan Coulton's zombie song "Re Your Brains". Great lyrics. Send it to any Office Zombies you happen to know. :-) The Play button on that lyrics page seems to be having probs, but you can go here and scroll down to Thing A Week III and find it there, too.

Two signs we enjoyed driving through Milford to go swimming today:

"Forget Waldo, Where's Hoffa?"

"Looking For Hoffa? Try the Yellow Pages Under Cement"

You betcha! :) Blueberry of course.

Toby said...

I love pie.

Toby said...

And that song is so 80's. Duran Duran to the max.

Elizabeth said...

Fabulous new picture :-)

Candace said...

:) Me too!

That's what I thought, too, Toby. It's kind of a blast from the past without the embarrassing hair and makeup. ;-)

Candace said...

Ooh, thanks E! :-) Oddly enough, that's pretty much how I envisioned it when I thought it up. Rarely does a pic come out like I imagine it will. :-P

Love your blueberry pi, Mollusc!

First you leave that comment on my blog about Shont and Arpi's names being related to mathematical equations in some twisted way, and now you make a symbol with berries. I am beginning to worry. I saw the movie Pi. We need to get you some help before you lobotomize yourself with a drill. :)

Candace said...

Mollusc says "YAY!!" :-)

Jack, you watch a movie about Pi and you're worried about me ?!?!? LOL! So was it a good movie? Well I kind of had Pi on the brain since that idea was cooking, and then I was trying to dissect those names (cuz sometimes parents will use a combo of their own names, like Mike + Janet = Jike or Manet, LOL!)
and one was clearly the begininning of a mathematical formula, LOL!

Good God, my verification is fbbmchi : fibonacci anyone?

I can't believe you're into math and you've never seen it! It's about a guy who is obsessed with finding patterns in nature and everything else in the world. Wall St firms want him, Jewish mystics want him, everyone wants a piece of his genius. But then his obsession drives him crazy so he drills a hole in his head. SWEET! But also a cautionary tale for people who try to find mathematical formulae in other people's names. :)

One day I will tell you how Shont and Arpi were named. To give you a hint for now, their dog (now deceased) was named Sossie.

Math Jokes get her a High Five!

You'll be watching for Fibs next :)

Candace said...

Jack, that sounds like a cool movie! All except for the trepanning part, that is. (if that is, indeed what he was trying to do, or was there not even a pseudo-plausible reason for what he did?)

I'm going to go crazy until I figure out how they were named. Well, crazier.

Fal - thanks! I will take my High 5 to testing with me to keep me going! Did you figure out any of the fibs in my fib post?

cuisenaire rods?

Candace said...

Much like Cuisinaires. :-) We used to have those, but now we have Math-U-See rods.
