#1LinerWeds from “Where The Wild Things Are”

You’ll see this again, next month during the A to Z Challenge.

One-Liner Wednesday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. Now a word from Post Crispy Critters cereal, the one and only cereal that comes in the shape of animals.

  1. I hadn’t thought about this one for awhile. It’s nice to discover someone else whose brain was permanently warped by 60s TV commercials.

    1. They have a lot of the old commercials on YouTube for Crispy Critters, including the ones for Crispy Critters with orange moose. (I can’t find a commercial for the one with pink elephants, though.) I think the people who did Rocky and Bullwinkle did these commercials, because the orange moose look like Bullwinkle. Almost a conflict of interest, because they worked with Total Television, owned by General Mills, as well. Yes, I’m really warped.

  2. I loved reading that book to my kids when they were little. I remembered it from school, and bought it when I had my first baby. Rumpus is such a great word – I resolve to use it in conversation today πŸ™‚

    1. I remember when it was new. I was seven, and someone gave it to my brothers, who were 4 and 5 at the time. One of the more memorable children’s stories, and the pictures are worth the price.

  3. Ah, a sneak peak! And a perfect quote for the beginning of the A to Z. Good job! By the way, having tons of trouble with the IFTTT! It did not transfer my blogger post to WordPress at all and my IFTTT account is not showing my profile picture. I may delete the applet and start the other way, posting to wordpress and having it send to blogger as you do and see what happens. It was working so well!

      1. My dedicated wordpress blog at http://activelightphotography.com/blog allows me to schedule blog posting via the WordPress Editorial Calendar and WP Scheduled Posts plugins. When I go on the road, I’ve used these to schedule up to four weeks of weekly posts in advance. Most of my problems have been with my site host JVZooHost doing maintenance that messes up scheduled post publishing. When I see this and I’m not at home, I can use WP Scheduled Posts’ publish immediately feature to post with a single box check and tap.

        I schedule post advertizing on facebook in advance as well, and also schedule post announcements on facebook, twitter, and LinkedIn through a free MavSocial account.

        Your needs may be different with daily posts via Blogger, but these tools have worked well for me.

        1. I’m just going along with the free version of WordPress, and using IFTTT to advertise. There’s a feature in WP that will post to Twitter and Facebook, something Blogger doesn’t have, but I use IFTTT anyway, mostly beause I can….

  4. After I saw IFTTT mentioned above, I wrote this about an alternative, then figured out you needed IFTTT’s WordPress and Blogger channels. But if you’re doing any kind of smarthome conditional timing, Triggi (https://triggi.com/) is a good option. It allows multiple conditions linked with AND logic to trigger one or multiple events, unlike IFTT’s single trigger and single output.

    1. We’re not planning on any smarthome stuff now (we’re home most of the time anyway), but if we decide to do something with it in the future, I’ll keep that in mind.

    1. For certain. The technology and tools cartoonists have at their disposal now are far advanced from when we were kids, but that’s only the half of it, maybe even less. I probably saw that commercial a hundred times when I was a kid, and it always made me laugh.
