…of course, thanks to the knuckleheads who make up the GOP.

They should use politicians’ salaries to pay for PBS and NPR,

…this week for two reasons:

1. My good friend Dylan Bolin makes an appearance as voice actor/puppeteer Stan Freberg.

2. There are two amazing quotes that take place during the show. They are:

“This small piece of rubber filled with helium is not the, uh, greatest thing in the world for a king to have floating around his nose.”

-Fred Rogers as King Friday, “The Children’s Corner”

“Somebody with a bizarre sense of humor had passed out pickles… and a  nine-year-old with a gigantic gherkin can be a very dangerous part of  your audience.”

-Pat McMahon, “The Wallace and Ladmo Show”

This isn’t to mention the nod to folks like Jim Henson and Bozo the Clown.

Check it out. Your childhood will thank you.

I change out the headers here on “The Blarg” pretty often. Over the past year, I’ve changed the header out nearly three dozen times.

My friend Shawn has a header archive over on his site, Darby’s Secret Stash. I thought that was a pretty good idea, so I decided to steal it! Mwa-ha-ha!

So here are all of the site’s headers from the past year. Some worked well; others are embarrassing. But hey, whatever… the site’s free. What do you want?

Here they are, shown from the oldest to the newest. Click on each banner to view a larger image.
