This idea is stolen, thieved, kyped, warped & manipulated for my own purposes. Ain’t I clever? Paul of Cafe Philos was going to start a Friday round-up where he shared some funny, titillating, or thought-provoking net bytes he’d come across through the week.
Then, …I’m not sure what happened. The idea seems to have killed his blog impulses utterly. His writer’s pulse went dead. He’d be an interesting case on the television show ‘House‘, where they make snappy comebacks over the splayed, gray corpse. (The success of that and other hospital dramas is kinda weird, ain’t it? I mean, its interesting to watch, but if I were dying I wouldn’t be real keen on having some self-righteous twerp of a physician be shockingly rude to me. I’d probly punch his fat nose in.)
These posts sparked my intrigue this week:

And of course, I must make the grave announcement that Unrealistic Expectations has turned to the dark side and become a cat-blog. It’s a sad, sad day for blog-kind, but maybe their vicious predator depictions will erase the tinge of cutesy bile that rises up in a reader’s throat. How it started.
I’m adding an amazing picture section to the Round-up
