The Grab Bag - Slim Pickins

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with New Paradigm Partners LLC EB #1326335

The internet is a less happy place these days - most of my funny people aren't in a mood to make jokes right now, and almost everything is politics. Perhaps understandable, but that's not the Grab Bag's thing, so we had to dig deep for this week's compilation of useless but mildly entertaining nonsense, and we even found something that might be useful to you - we'll get that out of the way first:



The New York Public Library Digital Collections


We're always on the lookout for good free images to use in our blogs, so it's great news that the New York Public Library recently enhanced access to all of the public domain items in its digital collections. There are over 180,000 images available for free download and use. Check it out:

The Rise of the Humans


Here's a fascinating brief video from the American Museum of Natural History on the rise of human population over time:

 




The Night


While not a knee-slapper, this short silly film made me smile, and smiles are good, right?

 

MR NIGHT HAS A DAY OFF - short film from Ignas Meilunas on Vimeo.




The Funnies


Here's the latest from David Malki at Wondermark.com. For some reason, this really resonates with me. How about you?

And finally, this is about all we could come up with this week from Weird Twitter:

 

If you want your dog to take a pill:

1. Get a piece of cheese
2. Eat the cheese for energy
3. Get ready to wrestle your dog

FYI, you don't have to be a waiter in order to go in a restaurant and wander from table to table asking people, "How's everything tasting"

Dick Greenberg - you make me laugh! Laughter, they say is good medicine. Now that it is after the elections, I think it is safe to say it's okay for all of us to overdose on humor!

Your grab bag posts are hilarious and good for the soul!

LOL...Wondermark hit the nail on the head insofar as corporate life is concerned.  And I loved The Night....because I marvel at those with that kind of creativity and mind.

Dick I am also always looking for new images to use, and did not know the New York Public Library had made all of those images available for public use, so thank you for the link.
