Examining Canes at the Store: A True Comic

It was my birthday this week.  Let’s take a look back to see where I was this time last year…

Huh…  It must not have been a great birthday.

  1. At midyear 1979-1980 school term in Miami 9th grade moved from jr high to sr high(this was done because many 9th graders were eligible to vote and could go 1/2 day if in job program to support their families). They needed to bring over a teacher to sr high. I volunteered(7:30 AM to 2:30 PM = perfect work schedule to make 3:00PM happy hour). At interview(sr high administrators always looking for coaches) the principal and assistant principle(both jocks) asked what sport I liked. Since I’m not a sports guy I replied “poker”. Administrators glanced at each other, smiled, then “He’ll work out just fine. See you tomorrow at 7:10 AM, Carl.” Maybe I do know about sports. One question, one answer and it was “touchdown”!

  2. The population is aging. Time for a cane revolution. Chip inserts that play music? Emit a sound and light show? Have embedded GPS systems? The field is wide open.

      Maybe I could make my millions by designing and selling customized canes. My friends and I are already off to a fairly decent start.

    Ha ha, had to look up ‘bauble’.. Funny sketch.. And happy birthday, was it the 9th?! Hope this year’s was a great one, where you had to put use all your special ‘skills’?! No pun ;)

    • Posky says:

      Glad you learned a new word. I’ll do everything in my power to enhance most of my skills, except for the one about pushing people away.

    Happy Birthday!

    Life comes at you fast . . . carrying a cane makes it easier to push people away!

  5. milieus says:

    So… why do you need a cane? Did I miss that? Just because you’re awesome?

  6. Lis says:

    Happy birthday, Posky. May this year be good to you.

  7. Cindy says:

    Best of birthday wishes from your nurse downunder xx

  10. Happy Birthday! Hope you had a good one! With that list of skills…shouldn’t be a problem! Mine is coming up soon…probably time to start scouting around for mine (cane I mean)! I’m thinking fist instead of tooth…but I thought those little tooth ghosts were pretty cool !

  11. Dr. Cynicism says:

    Happy Birthday Posky! Enjoy your cane! I vote to have flames emblazoned down the side.

  12. Vodka and Ground Beef says:

    Happy Birthday! I hope you get to play with some dogs and cats.

  13. mct88 says:

    OMG Happy Birthday… thanks for the laugh!

  14. Artswebshow says:

    happy b’day.
    You cane should ave a beer glass holder on top.
    lol

    • Posky says:

      I already have two of those. They are called hands.

      However, a third one on my cane couldn’t hurt. That’s pretty sound advice.

  15. lunargirl says:

    Canes with GPS. Ha! I love it. Happy belated Birthday!

  16. territerri says:

    Happy Birthday!

    Impressive list of skills you’ve got there. You gotta wonder though, if “pretty good at sex” gives you a leg up on the other job candidates.

    I don’t know. Maybe you don’t have to wonder. But the thought did cross MY mind!

  17. Q: What do you intend to bring to the firm on a daily basis?
    A: Lunch

    • Posky says:

      As in law firm?

      I could be a professional human charmer, an astronaut, a truck driver or just about anything else but I don’t think I could ever be a lawyer.

      I’d also probably have to buy lunch sometimes. I’d never bring a lunch everyday.
