…. It is an unfortunate fact that we all live in a world of free-flowing misconceptions…. our news, literature, art, culture - they can all be interpreted differently…. point of view, education, morality, and state-of-mind – they are all act in concert to form our uniquely personal perspectives….

… we witness strange tangents of thought arcing through our lives on an almost daily basis…. And they arrive on our plate of daily intake in a glorious myriad of forms…. conspiracy theories, half-heard punch lines, misspellings on the CNN tickertape…. and in some cases, from blogs….

… I mean, just check this out…. via El Capitan….

According to a couple of sewing websites, pants can require about 1 1/2 yards to 3 yards of fabric to make. You're a pretty tall rangy guy, Eric, so we'll say 3 yards. We'll subtract half a yard to make up the difference between fabric yards and square yards, leaving us with 2.5 square yards.

Dividing 2.5 by 0.042 sq. yards per dead mole gives us 59.52 dead moles! Add in another half dozen for belt loops, zipper covers and pockets, and we're up to 66 dead moles!

So, it looks like you're walking around with your ass covered in 66 dead moles.

…. Moleskins, indeed…..

.. have I told you guys recently just how much I love y’all?.... well, just because I don’t say it very often… hey, that doesn’t mean that I don’t….

Well, if I told everyone that moleskin fabric was really just a kind of shaved-down corduroy, that wouldn't be nearly as much fun, now would it?

Ahhh we love you too, Eric, we really do! Who else could shoulder the responsibility of all our adoration so elegantly?

The moleskins I can deal with. It's those fancy-pants shoes with the Rat-Sphincter Eyelets that send me around the bend.

With envy.

So I am thinking. Pamela Anderson, that oracle of all things just, has rejected Uggs (ugly big boots) because they are from Lambskin, etc... I am wondering... I mean PETA is big on protecting the animals and all... but moles? I am not sure they are classified as animals - thinking rodents, so treated differently when it comes to testing and such. And what on earth would we call boots from moles... There must be some catchy name, but it is escaping me.

But in case rsm reads the comments, perhaps he might want to invest in mole farms? Just a thought.

"66 dead moles"

Wasn't that Nina's follow-up to their hit "99 Red Balloons"?
