The Giants are having their victory parade today, and someone called it a ticker tape parade.  Uh, no.  Not a ticker tape parade.  Parade, yes, ticker tape, no.  Why not?  No more ticker tape machines; therefore, no more ticker tape.  Call it a confetti parade,if you like.  Doesn’t have the same ring to it.  Besides, where do you get confetti these days?  From your shredder, most likely, or go out and buy it.

For confetti throwers, there is an additional problem.  Most tall buildings in San Francisco have windows that don’t open.  So how do you litter the streets?  Ah, the problems of the ages.
I was sent a book of humor by one of you lovely people, so I'd better start sharing:

If in Hollywood you don't have a shrink, people think you're crazy.

Funny cartoon --


  1. As long as our tickers keep working, it's all good.

  2. No more ticker tapes?! No wonder the economy is in a mess! Once the world starts spinning too fast for ticker tapes, it's all bound to end in gloom.
