Here is this week’s list of comic strips, quotes, and other links to my favourite corners of the web.
Broccoli Is Bad For You. This is one of those things that I can’t tell you anything about in advance. Go read it for yourself! The humorous potato picture on the left reminded me of the tone of this piece in a good way.
Probably a Canadian. I couldn’t stop chuckling at this.
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: A Critical Analysis via LoriLSchafer. What a perfect way to start gearing up for Christmas.
Coughs and Sneezes. I had no idea that vintage public health announcements could be so snarky. This was cringe-worthy at times, but so are sneezing and coughing fits when people don’t cover their mouth. Luckily, I don’t see this happen very often these days. Most people are pretty polite about it.
One final thought:
Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live. And unselfishness is letting other people’s lives alone, not interfering with them. Selfishness always aims at creating around it an absolute uniformity of type. Unselfishness recognises infinite variety of type as a delightful thing, accepts it, acquiesces in it, enjoys it. ― Oscar Wilde
