The Social Poets: Libya War: Funny Late Nite Jokes Roundup

Stephen Colbert arrives at Al Faw Palace at Ca...Image by DVIDSHUB via Flickr

The Social Poets: Libya War: Funny Late Nite Jokes Roundup: "Check out what the comedians lampoon about The Peace President, Obama, going into Libya. Boy, I tell ya, a guy tries to help out some desperate people in a foreign country from getting slaughtered and all he gets is flak from the Republicans and comedians.

Of course, like so many sticky political situations, it's all about The Ego. The mostly male media ratchets up The Ego Meter by declaring Prez Obama is a wimp if he doesn't succeed at deposing Gadafi now that he's declared, 'Gadafi must go!' So, suddenly out come The Big Guns: the CIA operatives magicly appear in Libya 'advising' the rebel forces. Read that as, 'These guys are so clueless the only way to keep them alive is knock some sense into them and show them how to win.'"

Funny Snail and Wine Photo: Shell-E-Brations

MIAMI BEACH, FL - DECEMBER 09: Agostino Pezzat...Another snail hanging out in Miami - Image by Getty Images via @daylife

From Denny: Is this a Baptist snail trying to escape the deadly sin of getting dunked in the wine? Or is it a drinking snail, so inebriated he is climbing out to get sober? Party on and "shell-e-brate"!  Great photo with a funny twisty of humor of the possible double meaning that a viewer can take away for themselves.

Visual Insights: Dennys Photo Gallery: Winter Ice and Snow: "Here I am in the middle of a Spring pollen blizzard with 85 degree weather posting winter snow and ice photography. Uh, the rest of the nation may not be south Louisiana like where I live. In fact, here it is late March and parts of America are still experiencing snow storms and icy driving conditions. The month of March this year of 2011 refuses to go out like a lamb but rather prefers to be a drama queen and exit like a lion!

Just think, you can revisit this post come July when the weather is sweltering and you are fondly remembering cold weather as something wonderful. Enjoy my visual vacation where I rest from writing by combing through Flickr looking for interesting photos to fit a theme. You get to see some new photography talent and lovely images along the way. I try to feature and promote photographers, both amateur and professional, from all over the world. I'm an equal opportunity photo junkie..."

Tornado GR4 Takes Off from RAF Marham to Enfor...Image by Defence Images via Flickr

Dennys Global Politics: Peoples Revolution Recaptures Port Cities: Libya Political Cartoons: "Since the U.S. and the minority coalition established the No-Fly Zone over Libya last week, the rebels have fared better. To gain control over the skies, it was necessary to destroy Gadafi compounds, tanks, anti-aircraft batteries, weapons dumps and whole regiments of troops on the move. In short, America, the British and the French decimated most of the Gadafi regime.

At present, the rebels have marched along the coastal cities, taking back ownership after Gadafi drove them out with aerial bombings and tank bombardments. Turn about was fair play and Gadafi's troops got a taste of the horror they inflicted upon others, now visited upon themselves."

Funny Art Cartoon - What Love Is All About

DSC_0562Image by simone.brunozzi via Flickr
From Denny:  As an art lover I also love an artist with a sense of humor. Some of the most overlooked artists are cartoonists. Often they are taken for granted as we read in print or online our favorite daily newspaper. They depict our streaming politics, often lampooning policies or hypocritical politicians trying to sell a loser idea.

Today's art cartoon from Ballard Street is all about the art of assuaging a loved one's ego. Get a grin at this one:

Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food: Post Roundup at Dennys Blogs - 24 March 2011



Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food: Post Roundup at Dennys Blogs - 24 March 2011: "Check out news, politics, great food, funny political humor, sassy opinion, astronomy and science, great quotes,  awesome photography, poetry and spiritual thoughts.

Sometimes, I think if I didn't do posts roundup on all these crazy blogs I would never realize just how much I've been writing or on what subjects as the writing moves so quickly. The news is running at a rapid rate these days with all the revolutions in the Middle East and destructive world weather.

Fortunately, we have the comedians and the chefs to perk up our spirits and tantalize our taste buds so we don't get overwhelmed with too much negativity in the news and our politics."

The Social Poets: Obama: End Libya War Now and 14 Political Cartoons: "While America's war hawks and profiteers are thrilled to have spent $1 billion this week bombing Libya, it's time to complete The Hand Over to anyone else but us. Americans did not expect to be the country spending 95 percent of the money in this police action and we are not happy about it. American taxpayers are fed up with footing the bill for everything all the time and for far too long. We spend decades in idiot unnecessary expensive wars started by previous presidents, then start 'police actions' in a current administration."

Dennys Global Politics: Libya Update: No-Fly Zone Allies Pound Gadafi Forces Over Weekend

Dennys Global Politics: Libya Update: No-Fly Zone Allies Pound Gadafi Forces Over Weekend: "Once the United Nations and The Arab League agreed to a no-fly zone late last week, they wasted little time in implementing it. That has to be the fastest the United Nations has ever moved to agreement or action to help a besieged people.

From the sea over 100 miles away, the UK and America lobbed cruise missiles at Gadafi installations, most especially his air defense ones. After all, if you are going to send up French and American planes to enforce the no-fly zone you first have to take out the military capability of Gadafi to fire upon them."

Funny Art: Reading The Directions

From Denny: This painting is as delightful is as it's funny. How many times have men decided they know where they are going when driving only to get lost? Do you think they would ever stop and ask directions? Of course not. Nor do they seem to read a map very well. Leave it to the woman to get them to their destination - and in the desert and on a camel no less. A clever and talented artist with a sense of humor.

Amazing Portrait Art Photo of The Day: Lady Gaga

From Denny: Fellow journalist Ben Heine is a huge talent who is also a digital artist, a sculpture, a photographer. He speaks many languages as well from his travels. He was born in the Ivory Coast nation at the tip of Africa and now lives and works out of Belgium

He has been developing this intriguing art technique he labels as digital circlism and he is currently exploring its possibilities. I like it that he offers a huge version of the artwork so you can view in detail how he achieved it.

Heine really knows how to move the emotion of a subject while paying attention to tiny details that enrich the viewing experience: Art!

38 Creative March Desktop Wallpapers

Choose a design with or without the calendar.





From Denny: Tripping through the database of Smashing Magazine are some real beauties for wallpaper choices. I've been debuting the March ones all afternoon on my home computer. What fun to see these designs on the larger screen!

I also discovered some gifted illustrators, artists and photographers along the way. Those long hours of research are always worth the journey each month for this post. I culled four years of March wallpapers and here are my favorites. Looking for beauty, elegance and wit are my criteria that influence my choices. There are plenty more to choose from if your taste runs to graphic novel, grunge, folk art and tech.

First off is Smashing Magazine's choices for this year of March 2011. Be sure to check out the link for the artist, taking you to their website, blog, deviantart site or even their flickr page.

What do we think of when we reflect upon the month of March?  We think of Winter ending, Spring coming in on the cool winds, soaking Spring rains, the trees leafing out and green weeds.  There is the fun celebration of St. Patrick's Day.  And there is the old adage, "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb."  These designers took these all as their inspirations.



From the March 2011 Collection, available with or without the calendar:





Save The Date

"Tunisia and Egypt revolution… The beauty of freedom in two colors Red and Black." Designed by Sahra Tamo from Syria.




March Flying

"March is the time when you can spread your wings and welcome the first rays of sun." Designed by Jaro Mlkvy from Slovakia.
