At last, the bait gets a bite . . .
R. Elgin, one of the bloggers over at the Marmot's Hole, posted the above photo on October 8, 2013, and I found it cute, so I posted a little news report to go with it and to bait some random reader:
"Little Boy with Stick, Writes in Dirt" (AP)Eighteen days passed, but the bait ultimately got a bite that swallowed "sinker, line, and hook":
The photographer has withheld his own name, but he captured the moment that a trapped little boy scratched out a message in the dirt:
"Help! Cannibals have captured us! Please rescue us while their backs are turned!"Only later -- too late -- did the photographer make out the lines in the sand while studying the photo:
"I returned," he reports, "but the jars were empty. I just hate to think about what must have happened . . ."The police are investigating.

Why do you sign your name like a pretentious twat after EVERY comment, even the retarded ones with lame mini-stories that no one finds funny (like this one?)I think Mr. J. Kimchi may have meant the classist "twit" rather than the sexist "twat" (and surely meant no derogation of the mentally underdeveloped). Anyway, I responded to his question:
-Fake photographer; Groove magazine blogger; Wannabe artist (aka Kindergarten teacher)
"Why do you sign your name like a pretentious twat after EVERY comment . . ."I haven't yet told Mr. J. Kimchi that this regular signature of mine is an Irony Trap, but a man of his caliber should be figuring that out any day now . . .
So people won't call me "Horace."
