It's a Dysfunctional Blog
In honor of the late, lamented Dysfunctional Family Circus and the late, lamented It's a Dysfunctional Life, I bring you captions of this photo. Most of them will fail. You will laugh at two of them.
  • The Psychic Newsprint slid slowly off the page and onto the toddler's pajamas. Its time had finally come.
  • "Miss Halverson! Bring me my lunch time martini, and a fresh diaper! The European markets are about to close and I can't find my binky!"
  • As little Timmy looked dejectedly at the classifieds, he realized that he was only qualified to mop the floors in a research lab. I knew I shouldn't have gotten my "degree" at DeVry, he thought.
  • My parents had an unorthodox method of potty-training me. They forced me to put down newspapers, took my diapers away, and blasted air-horns at me when I soiled the floor. To this day, I can't open the Wall Street Journal without feeling the urge to poop. -- Dolly, Memoirs
  • The warm glow of his skin illuminated the room, even though it was 3:30 in the morning, and he was reading the newspaper aloud while simultaneously translating the articles into Pashtu. "Thel," he said, "I told you we shouldn't adopt a kid from Chernobyl."

Additional interesting tidbit about It's a Dysfunctional Life: Long before rightshu and I ever met and got married (or for that matter even knew of the existence of one another), I was an editor on IADL and he was a regular visitor. It was not until several months after we met that the topic came up and we discovered this. It's a small internet, after all.
