Winning Is Better Than Not...

Whitney Huston and Oprah Winfrey
WELL, THIS SENT A CHEAP LITTLE THRILL UP MY SPINE. There I was, wasting time on the Internet for the 400th time today,(as usual). Check the mail, delete the mail, browse Overstock, check bottom of the barrel specials, write a poem, think of Blog, check who's not blogging, check out Twitter, why did I give in? Crikies!!
And the NYTimes, like I own them and have to see if they're doing good. But they do update every 10 seconds. And gossip like the Enquirer these days. Who do you think had more ink on Adam Lambert? Guess again. So I write in to everything that says "Comment". Politics, foodie hang outs, instant celebs,(is it you, yet?). And lately I've discovered Laugh Lines/ cartoons that need a punch line. I'm hooked. Do I want to make you laugh? Does a fish have lips? So for a couple of weeks I nudged my funny bone, and today when I idly scoured the cartoon site... I did a double take! Because there was my toon...and I won, well 1st runner up..same prize as first place...NOTHING...but, I'm not a materialist.
Can they sue me for publishing their photo, my words? Hey, this is almost the end of the year of living dangerously, so what the heck. If the "intruders" got to shake hands with the Prez, surely I won't get into more trouble than they did for making a joke. Anyway, as they say, dieing is easy, comedy's hard. We''ll see.
My caption, (see photo)..." It's a great diet Oprah. All you have to do is lean forward like this and push the food away". Entered by Linny. My NYTimes byline. In my dreams.
