#1LinerWeds From r/ShowerThoughts on Reddit

One of the many reasons we no longer go to the movies.

I’ve been hanging out at Reddit a lot lately. It’s kind of like Facebook and Twitter but without all the drama. At least, I haven’t found any yet.

In the ’60’s we played with (toy) guns all the time…

#1LinerWeds from Sebastian Maniscalco

The first time I saw Sebastian Maniscalco, I thought he was from New York. Turns out, he’s from Chicago. There is a wealth of Sebastian on YouTube, as you might expect. Here’s the full skit that I got this line from.

There’s something that wouldn’t see the light of day in this day and age.

A #1LinerWeds From Me!

Pardon the Anglo-Saxonism…

I made this all myself using GIMP, complete with color and font selection and having to figure out how to outline the letters in black. The font I chose was Kabel, which was quite popular in the late ’60’s and early ’70’s, which is why I chose it. The distinctive letter in the Kabel font is the lowercase “g.”

I was working on something the other day, and was so impressed with the result that I said this to myself, and figured I’d share it with everyone. You’re welcome.


One-Liner Wednesday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. Now a word about the new Sports line of Duncan Yo-Yos. Remember, if it doesn’t say “Duncan,” it’s not a yo-yo!

I half-expected Duncan to be out of business, since I haven’t seen a kid with a yo-yo in years. Surprise, surprise: not only are they still around, they have a website. Not only do they still have the yo-yos (many of them the models I remember from over 50 years ago), they still carry the Duncan Imperial Spin Top, my personal favorite.
