Why Bigfoot Has Not Been Seen

 Bigfoot explains, in his own words, why no one has yet found him. It's also a reason he is a big fan of cell phones.

Now to be fair, there are the Bigfoots hunters on TV. They are actively looking for him. They sweep an area with what? 

4 people?

Don't worry. Here's my spoof animation of a couple Bigfoot hunters who seem fairly clueless.

Wood Carved Pickle Resembles Bart Simpson

Grab a cup of coffee and come and listen bout a story of a man called Jeb . . . Whoops. Wrong story.

 Is it just me or does this pickle resemble Bart Simpson?

Funny story. I started out trying to carve a ghost. I cut in the arms and didn't like them so carved away. Turned it around and tried again. Same result. Carved those away.

Now the carving was getting too thin to be a ghost. So I dug in some eyes.


Carved them away. Added eyes and was going to carve a wide-open mouth with teeth when my first cuts made me realize a tongue was protruding. So I carved it, and it became a tongue.

I finished and wasn't sure what it was but noticed the carving resembled Bart Simpson somewhat. Finally, I decided it was a pickle. Probably what Bart would look like if he became a pickle. 

Oh and, if you never watched the Beverly Hillbillies, you don't have a clue about how I started this story. 😊

AI Generated Coffee Fake Facts Story

  I'm sure most of you know about AI. It's fascinating and maybe a little scary? 

Maybe. But I'm doing some experimenting with AI and finding all sorts of things that can be done. But this is a blog about coffee. So let me show you a story that was actually created using AI. I used to write books under the name B.B. Knight so if I was using AI, most likely I'd just have it spit out some story ideas and then take it from there.

But this story cracked me up and I thought I'd share it with you. I would love to hear your thoughts.

Once upon a time in the whimsical land of Caffetopia, there existed a magical coffee bean named Bob. Bob was no ordinary bean; he possessed the extraordinary ability to grant people with incredible, albeit fictional, coffee facts.

One fine morning, Bob found himself being brewed in a cheerful coffee shop called "Caffeinated Delights." As the hot water seeped through his aromatic essence, Bob's magical powers were unleashed. The barista, a young and enthusiastic coffee lover named Emma, unknowingly poured Bob's enchanting elixir into a cup.

Little did Emma know that with every sip, her customers would be gifted with bizarre coffee facts that would leave them perplexed and amused.

The first customer, a regular named Frank, took a sip of the enchanted brew and suddenly found himself speaking in rhymes. Startled but amused, he began sharing coffee facts in poetic verses. With a twinkle in his eye, he revealed, "Did you know that coffee beans secretly practice ballet in the moonlight? They pirouette and arabesque while humming the theme song from 'The Nutcracker.'"

The coffee shop erupted in laughter as the customers were enchanted by Frank's lyrical revelation. They couldn't wait to experience the magical coffee facts for themselves.

Next in line was a timid young lady named Lisa. As she sipped the coffee, a delightful surprise awaited her. She gained the ability to read the minds of coffee beans. Lisa gasped in astonishment and announced, "You won't believe it! Coffee beans hold secret meetings at midnight to discuss world domination. They're plotting to take over the world, one cup at a time!"

The coffee shop buzzed with excitement as customers marveled at the amusing coffee facts. Each person who sipped the enchanted brew discovered a unique and whimsical talent.

As the day progressed, people started flocking to "Caffeinated Delights" in search of the mystical coffee. The shop became a hub of laughter and entertainment. From spontaneous dancing to uncontrollable laughter, the magical coffee facts transformed the mundane into the extraordinary.

However, as evening fell, Bob's enchantment began to fade. The last customer, a curious child named Max, took a sip and eagerly waited for his magical talent to emerge. To his dismay, nothing happened. Bob's power had been exhausted.

Emma, the barista, noticed Max's disappointment and, with a smile, explained that the magical coffee facts were all in good fun. She assured him that the joy and laughter they experienced were the true magic of coffee.

And so, the tale of Bob, the magical coffee bean, and his whimsical coffee facts became legendary in Caffetopia.

 "Caffeinated Delights" continued to serve delicious coffee, but the memory of the enchanted brew and the laughter it brought remained forever imprinted in the hearts of those who experienced its magic.

Leprechaun Finds Gold - Thinks Bitcoin

 Once upon a rainbow-drenched morning in the heart of Ireland, a mischievous leprechaun named Seamus stumbled upon a glittering pot of gold at the end of a particularly vibrant rainbow. Seamus's eyes sparkled with excitement as he clutched the precious coins in his tiny hands.

"Now, what to do with all this gold?" Seamus pondered, his mind racing with possibilities. He had heard whispers from the forest fairies about a mysterious digital treasure known as Bitcoin.

"I've got it!" Seamus exclaimed, a mischievous grin spreading across his face. "I'll buy myself some Bitcoin and become the richest leprechaun in all of the Emerald Isle!"

And so he exchanged the gold for Bitcoin.

And did he become the richest leprechaun. Well . . .  yes - then no - then yes - then no - then  . . . .

Beetle Bailey - Memories

 I came across this Beetle Bailey metal sign on Ebay. I was looking for a Beetle Bailey sign I could add to one of my walls in my newly decorated cartoon room.

I grabbed this the moment I saw it because I can relate to this picture. I was a sergeant in the army, and it was my last couple days in Vietnam. I have no idea why I had a bucket of water near me. It's possible one of the Vietnamese girls was cleaning our barracks. I was inside because the last few days of my tour I was not allowed to leave the area for safety reasons.

Anyway, I grabbed the bucket and walked to the door and yelled "Geronimo" as I tossed the water outside. It was like slow motion because as I was tossing the water, I saw the captain walking towards me, and I tried but couldn't stop the momentum. He got soaked.

I started apologizing to him but also couldn't stop laughing. The captain was not a friendly guy, but he surprised me. I don't remember his exact words, but it was on the order that I was lucky I was going home, and it was a good thing I was well respected for my time there.

I'll never forget that moment and this sign was a must have.

Did Caveman Drink Coffee?

 This is curious. Is it possible that cavemen drank coffee? This cavegirl seems to know something that the guys are clueless about. 

I mean why wouldn't the coffee bean have grown in prehistoric days? If it did, it's possible . . . OK. I'm wildly speculating. But still. 

If I recall, Fred Flintstone was a coffee drinker.
