Stressful Week? Here’s Some Happy News!

This week  the U.S. and U.K. have both been consumed by domestic political bickering. We’re all tired of hearing about it, aren’t we? We need some fun, happy news don’t we? Don’t worry, I’ve got your back.

He’s Back Baby Doll! First, the paragraph title is a variation of one of my favorite lines from one of my favorite episodes of one of my favorite all time shows. If you think you know it, answer in the comments. Let’s face it, most of us here in the blogosphere are dreamers. We’re creative writers and we lean towards wanting to believe in the good and the fantastic in life. What is more good and fantastic than the return of Bigfoot? A hiker accidentally captured some, of course, blurry footage, of a large creature in trees in southern California this week. Why can’t good photographers ever get pictures of cool, mysterious stuff?

There you have it. Bigfoot is alive and well and was seen at a Jack in the Box drive thru with the Loch Ness Monster. (There you go Jack in the Box marketing people. That’s your next commercial. Just give me a cameo as the take out window cashier) The truth is out there. We want to believe.

Koko the Gorilla Fosters Kittens: Koko the Gorilla, well known for learning sign language decades ago is now acting as a foster parent for kittens from a local animal shelter. Also, Koko is 44 years old.

It’s hard to worry about Brexit or Donald Trump when you know Koko is out there looking after kittens. Koko for President! In the U.S. some would say that we’ve already got a gorilla as President. To those that would say that, I’d say stop insulting gorillas.

Ok, remember the title of the Bigfoot paragraph? What sit-com character entered a bar with the exclamation “I’m back baby doll!”? My wife loves when I enter the house and shout this. It never gets old. Hint: The line is from a very popular American sit-com that ended it’s nine year run two years ago.

I hope you have a great Saturday! ~Phil

  3. Koko and I are the same age. Between that and my kid turning 21 I’m kinda feeling a little old right now.

  4. I don’t know who had said that quote
    I’m sorry but it’s true
    But perhaps if I blog once again
    I will use that line too.

  5. Aw, I love Koko! She’s proof that animals (and therefore we) aren’t sociopathic by nature.

  8. Reblogged this on The Phil Factor and commented:

    If you’re dealing with stress fatigue from well, everything in 2020, this post will remind you that there is still good in this world.


  9. I remember being fascinated by the Loch Ness monster as a kid. We went there once when I was an adult and I was shocked at how tourist-y the place was–and I never did get to see the monster for myself:-)
