I bought a box of Q-Tips today. And for the first time I actually looked at what's on the box. Not exactly instructions per se, but a list of the "Variety Of Uses" for Q-Tips. First of all, none of those uses are what one actually uses Q-Tips for (cleaning one's ears).

Take a look at the Variety Of Uses -

apparently one is for applying First Aid ointment to eyebrows,

the second is for cleaning your computer keyboard,

and the fourth is scrubbing your shower.

But what caught my eye was the third use...
Just what exactly is that person doing with that baby and the Q-Tip? Poking its eye out?

We went to the Laguna Art Festival today. It was a lot of fun, but I can't post any photos of the artwork or the Pageant Of The Masters because at every festival there were signs all over the place declaring that photography was prohibited.

It is beyond me why artists wouldn't want people displaying their artwork on the internet to a worldwide audience. Essentially, they're saying "I'm an artist, and I want the smallest number of people to see my work."
