My friends Ken and Katie recently took their many children to Disney World, where they met up with other friends for several days of merriment. Ken wrote about it in his blog. He included photos. One of them is below. (You can click it for a larger version.) Look at the sign behind them, partially obscured by Ken’s head. What do you suppose they charge for admission at that place?

Two very funny pictures floating around the Internet this weekend, both reflecting the nation’s mood as a certain waste of space was sent back to jail on Friday.
My friend David Cornelius made this one:
(See this pic to appreciate Dave’s inspiration.)
Meanwhile, this picture was sighted at this blog:
You tell her, Nelson!
Since you aren’t here in person for me to show you the pictures in my wallet, I’ll have to brag about my adorable niece and nephew on my blog. Also, I don’t actually have any photos in my wallet, so being here in person wouldn’t help.
These were taken a couple nights ago. Here’s little Lindsay, 2 1/2 years old and so cute I want to devour her. Not in the creepy way that Hannibal Lecter devours people, but in the dignified way that you devour adorable children. You know what I mean.
And here is her new little brother Logan, born three months ago and apparently happy to just chill out. I have captioned the photo in a manner that seemed to reflect his mood, as if he were a lolcat.
AREN’T THESE CHILDREN CUTE???!!?!?! COULDN’T YOU JUST DIE?!??!!?!?
(P.S. I have another niece, and she is also cute, but I don’t have any pictures of her. You’ll have to take my word for it.)
When I was in Salt Lake City in January, I saw a truck pulling one of those combination trailer/billboards. The ad was in support of Utah’s new school voucher program, wherein the state will pay you money not to send your kid to public school, or something like that.
Here is a picture I took of the billboard in question:
In case you can’t quite make it out, here’s an enlargement:
This is a pretty good endorsement for the voucher program, actually. The people who made this sign were probably educated by public schools, and look where it got them.
Today the mailman brought me a package postmarked Orem, Utah. I know plenty of people there, but the name and address were unfamiliar. Was this the mail bomb I’ve been expecting for so long?
I opened the package to find a lovely card addressed to me, and a beautiful gift bag. I read the card. It said, in part:
I loved your “Muckoo for Mocoa Muffs” column. Imagine my delight when, that very day, I walked into Harmon’s grocery store and saw the best-named fake Cheerios ever on the end-cap of one of the health food aisles. I bought a box, intending to send it to you, but I have a little procrastination problem and am only just getting around to it.
Well, she probably loves me the rest of the time, too. But it was made manifest yesterday when a box arrived in the mail containing the following items:
- several Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs Continue reading…
- a Cadbury Creme Egg
- various jelly beans
- Hershey’s Truffle Kisses
- a batch of Mom’s legendary The Brownies
Though fate and hygiene have thus far prevented me from spawning any offspring of my own, I am pleased to report that my brother has picked up some of the slack has produced a man-child!
Logan Ripken Snider was born last Friday, March 2, in Orem, Utah, the second child of Jeff and Beth Snider. He weighed 7 lbs., 9 oz., which is about 30 pounds less than his sister, Lindsay, weighed when she was born a couple years ago. Lindsay was huge. She was so big she had to be delivered not by C-section but by FedEx. We thought Jeff and Beth — both tall folks, and Jeff is not what you’d call svelte — were going to populate the earth with a race of giants, but Logan is a bit more average in size, though apparently his feet are big. So maybe he’ll just be really tall.
No “Snide Remarks” today, kids, I’m sorry to inform you. I didn’t have enough time this week to develop anything good. Back next week, though.
In the meantime, enjoy this mugshot of actor Rip Torn, taken when he was arrested for drunken driving last Monday afternoon.
Quiz: Is this my niece Lindsay from a few days ago, or is it Courtney Love at age 2?
I thought so.
