Full Moonacy Lunacy


Recommended Posts

Well it's that time of the month. It's 3 AM, the upstairs neighbors have installed a bowling alley or are having the kinkiest sex on record. I lost the ability to see the "man in the moon" about a year ago :confused: Just can't make out the face anymore. Did the change the moon? Turn it around or something?


Just wanted to share.

Hanging out with kids is my specialty; I'm even a godfather now! (I'm so proud I must drive people nuts bragging about my godson iga, he's the best :D ).


I see Cain in the moon, which my dad showed me when I was little. Back then I couldn't see it.


Just found this googling:


"While in yet another folktale, written tradition says that the man in the moon is Cain, who slew his brother Abel, with his dog and thorn bush; the thorn bush being emblematical of the thorns and briars of the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, and the dog being the foul fiend, a poor representation, of the serpent."


And this:


"A dog is sometimes added as is seen in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream:

"This man with lantern, dog, and bush of Thora, presenteth moonshine." (v,i)."


Cool, those are good decriptions of the picture I see. Well if it's lunacy I'm in good company, I was getting kind of worried. Actually it is a kind of "man in the moon", only not some jolly face, but standing up in a kind of Mesopotamian profile.

Reminds me of a joke heard I heard back in my days in academe:


What do you get when you cross a mobster with a deconstructionist? An offer you can't understand.

Congratulations Don Bobro!


(Time to make Dave an offer he can't refuse for one of his Andromedas.)
