The Flintstone Flyer (Jewish Journal 2)

15 May

May 15, 2011- afternoon

Ah, the mind. Interesting in its complexity, subtle in its simplicity. Or something.

Anyway, yesterday’s blog about The Flintstones newspaper strip led to my recollection of an old memory of an incident from my youth in which I acquired a Flintstones/Passover booklet. That memory led me to recall a picture I’ve had saved on the computer since 2007.

I don’t recall the exact context but the picture shows a religious Jew operating some sort of homemade machine which I think was somehow used in the creation of matzo. It is made from parts of an exercise bike, gears from a real bicycle, some wooden additions, and extra gears. It looks like nothing less than the Flintstone Flyer. (Or Barneycopter, if you want to be accurate.)

Sneak Peek of the Week of May 15th, 2011

This is Agent Zero reporting from deep inside Mr. Blog’s Tepid Ride. I’ve uncovered a lot of evidence that a crime wave will take place here next week. And I’m not just talking about the usual crimes againt comedy that get committed here day in and day out, like The American Chopper Rundown and Saturday Comics. I have evidence of mail theft, proof of the smuggling of illegal Chinese knock-offs, and documentation of corruption in the highest levels of the Iranian government.

I also found this little doozy that I hope doesn’t fall into the wrong hands:

This is deep. The conspiracy goes all the way to the top.
