Miscellaneous Photographs of Not Much

Our motto here at Slimbo's Fun Factory is "When you run out of things to post, just lower your standards," so this week we're starting an exciting new series called Miscellaneous Photographs of Not Much in which I post the dusty dregs from my Bin of Photographs That For Whatever Reason Please Me Even Though They Have No Obvious Narrative Significance and in Most Cases Can Barely Even Be Said To Be of Anything (Except in the Trivial and Obvious Sense in Which All Photographs Are of Something). And all for the low low price of absolutely nothing (which means you can't complain). Whoo!

    Awesome.
    I've been waiting for you to drag out your Bin of Photographs That For Whatever Reason Please You Even Though They Have No Obvious Narrative Significance and in Most Cases Can Barely Even Be Said To Be of Anything (Except in the Trivial and Obvious Sense in Which All Photographs Are of Something).

    I don't get why you were stalled on that one.

    Also looking forward to more titular phrases exceeding 30 words, with possible parenthetical expressions included.

    (E.B. White is rolling, rolling in his grave, you know.)

  2. Little Known Fact: The working title of Charlotte's Web was The Story of a Runt Pig Named Wilbur Who Is Saved from Slaughter and Befriended by a Spider Named Charlotte (Charlotte Having the Amazing Ability to Spell Messages Such As 'Some Pig', 'Terrific', 'Radiant', and 'Humble' In Her Web, Thus Convincing the Farmer To Spare Him)Aswell As the Ensuing Bittersweet Aftermath in Which Charlotte Dies But Wilbur Ensures That Her Eggs Safely Hatch and Her 'Magnum Opus' Is Brough to Fruition until White's editor made him shorten it. True story. (Maybe. I think. Perhaps.)

    Did not know that.
    So, behind one editor is always another? Kinda like those Russian nesting dolls...though they probably don't descend in size and entirely fit into eachother's bodies - though I guess one could never be sure.

    (And, when I was a kid I would've totally picked up any book with "Runt Pig" in its title.

    Editors can suck it.)

  4. And actually, the working title of Elements of Style was Editors Can Suck It. True story. (Maybe. I think. Perhaps.)
