Pointless Potpourri

You Learn Something New Every Day, Dept.

Former MTA information site mtainfo.com is no longer an MTA information site. In the words of clever Mrs. Nator:

So, “How are you going to get to heaven?” Certainly not on the B63, my friend.

It’s a Manhattanatee!

In case you haven't heard, a supersized manatee has recently been sighted in the Hudson River. According to the Internets, he or she has now been spotted as far north as Sleepy Hollow, just north of the Tappan Zee. Local naturalists are puzzled, as these gentle and endangered creatures are rarely seen this far north.

In an exclusive interview, said the manatee, “what’s the big deal? I was just going to visit my friend Rocky the Risso Dolphin. I hear he got sprung outta the hospital a little while ago…”

Meanwhile, off Perth, Australia, an extremely rare albino whale calf has been spotted. Are all these odd aquatic mammal sighting signs of the End Days? Representatives of Busch Entertainment Corporation deny rumours that SeaWorld star Shamu the orca was heard to have stated "albino whale calf - the other white meat!"

Man Wombmine Ray

Finally, if any of you are interested, having wandered around my neighbourhood this past Sunday, I just put a buttload of new photos up in the "Brooklyn Wanderings" section of my Flickr pages. Please, if you have the time and inclination, take a look at them. Some of them I've done more than one version, fiddling in-camera or Photoshop. Let me know what you like, what you don't, and what changes could make them better. (Psst! This especially means you, Dope.)

Ciao, bellas...

Oh, that little albino calf is so cute! Without the rather odd face thing and upside down swimming of the ghost whale.
