New Orleans: we put the "fun" in funeral 

The title is from a bumper sticker I saw while driving around today. I also saw a license plate from the District of Columbia which read "Taxation without Representation".

Pretty strong political statement for a license plate, I thought.

Perhaps Louisiana should do the same, given recent outrages. Something pithy, yet forceful.

For someone with Ian's skills, that was like a fastball down the middle of the plate.

Wow, that's the last time I try for you.

You were trying? I would expect forty or fifty contributions if you were trying.

Hell, you can do a fourteen quality captions/phrases in your sleep! Don't try and deny your giftedness, either!

Seriously, though, nice job. If I could photo shop, I'd use those on a LA license plate background.

Oyster, I honestly couldn't tell if you were impressed or insulted. Flamingo Jones and I were debating it all day yesterday. But I love verbal ambiguity, so kudos!

License plates, New Orleans, baseball metaphors and captions: you tapped into my pulse pretty good there.

Sometimes I'm too dry.

And sometimes my sentences are about as clear as a rabid wingnut who's just been spooked by a Babs Streisand comment. (My editor is, er, lax.)

Anyhoo, just do me the favor of charitably interpreting my more inscrutable offerings directed your way.

In the above I was just saying something like "This post pitches to one of your strengths, Ian. And you seemed to effortlessly hit it out of the park."

Kudos, sir.
