No comment

In a failed attempt to re-install peek-a-boo comments on this blog, I somehow deleted your ability TO comment on this blog. Ugh.

Hopefully I can fix this before the end of the weekend. Thanks for your patience.

In the meantime, if you're frustrated, leave a... oh, wait, you can't.

UPDATE: Fixed! Hopefully, I'll have peek-a-boo comments soon.

Welcome to a landmark you never intended to visit

Why does the massive sign "Welcome to the Throgs Neck Bridge" exist at its tolls?

Almost no one ever considers a bridge a destination, unless he or she plans to either a) fish or b) jump off it.

Did wildlife and game and euthanasia lobbyists unite to pressure the MTA into this display? What tourism board thinks this is a bright idea? Are postcards available? I need to know these things.

Theories welcome. I'm genuinely stumped.

Hi. I do blog sometimes.

If you think it's been a while since I've blogged with consistency on THIS blog, just imagine if you're a poor fan of Headline Punchline. (Remember that blog? Evidently neither did I until today.)

Anyway, sorry about that. To upgrade the mood to a more celebratory one, I just realized the previous post was No. 500 in VB's history. I'm happy that it involves such relevant, thought-provoking footage in a turbulent time such as this.

Paul Shaffer, Movie Monster

This undoctored footage from this season of "The Sopranos" gets funnier with every view. I present to you "Paul Shaffer, Movie Monster."

Whoever uploaded it also wrote a brilliant caption: "Paul Shaffer laughs at your heartache."
