Actual excuses for being late to work from actual people, who I imagine actually thought they’d get away with. As borrowed from coburgbanks.co.uk via Reader’s Digest, actually.

Ever wonder why is a coin toss “heads or tails”? Look at your typical coin; One side has a head, the other side has something-or-other than a head. You get one head, not heads. Or one something-or-other than a head, not more than one. So why the plural “heads or tails” when it seems it should be “head or tail.”
On the other hand, the other side really, why tails? Heads I get; Coins often have a person depicted in profile on one side, i.e., a head. Tails I don’t get; I’ve never seen a coin with a tail on the other side. Buildings, scenes, animals, crests and stuff like that, yes. But a tail, no. How did the something-or-other than a head ever come by that term?
This is the kind of thing retirees with lots of time to kill think about. And create animation for. And then inflict it all on unsuspecting web viewers.
Nothing new but the date. So I reprised a doodle as art. Of sorts. Hm-m-m. This might be why this site is number 125 millionth in the Web Hit Parade. See ya tomorrow.

cuckold (kŭk′ əld) noun, A man whose wife is unfaithful. transitive verb, To make a cuckold of.
The word cuckold comes from the cuckoo bird. Not that the bird made up the word, all it can say is “cuckoo cuckoo,” rather the word cuckold was inspired by the cuckoo’s lifestyle. And I don’t mean living in clocks and cuckooing on the hour day and night. See, the cuckoo lays its eggs in other birds’ nests, presumably while the other birds aren’t looking, and let’s the other poor birds raise the chicks while the cuckoo sneaks away and goofs off, or whatever it is these lazy birds do.
Now then about that silly animation. If I have to explain it, you won’t like it.

One just has to figure the most difficult position to get would be Devil’s advocate. Just consider how many lawyers there are down there.
So far the staff here at terrycolon.com has not been very productive for 2021. But the year is still young. Unlike the staff which is still old. Elderly even. All the same, I’m hoping to whip them into shape soon. If possible. As you can see, they’re not looking too lively. Or even alive now that I look closer. Whatever the case, I haven’t given up entirely yet. Stress on the yet.
Another year on tap and I got… nothing so far. Still, I thought I’d do a quick entry so my handful or readers would know I haven’t abandoned the the old site. That’s it for now. Soon there’ll be some new rebuses and some old jokes and… something. Only time will tell. Until then, enjoy the archives. (see menus left)
