Dun dun dun dun dun DUN

Can't we, your noisy upstairs neighbors, take a few weeks off to campaign in absentia for our favorite US Presidential Candidates?

We have been supporting nominee Barack Obama for one reason and one reason only. On his website, you can agree to make telephone calls and sign up and he (Yeah, HE) gives you a list of phone numbers in whatever US State they are harrassing the voters of at the moment and they give you a script...

"Hullo, we are your noisy upstairs neighbours, is (insert the name of your noisy downstairs neighbour here) at home we'd like to discuss why we are supporting blah blah blah..."

So we Skype them with the best of intentions but our calls usually end up something like this...

"DO YOU HAVE PRINCE ALBERT IN THE CAN?" or
"IS YOUR REFRIGERATOR RUNNING?"

*click*

Followed by squeals and giggles as we roll around on the Bare Mattress of Love and get our headset cords wrapped around our foolish necks.

But on to all matters photomeme:

Photosharks

Agent Whatever (their name, not our dismissive title) threw note tied to a rock through our window that said (paraphrasing only as we took out the rocks and notes earlier this morning) "WTF is up with Photosharks?"

WTF indeed! We came up with several proposals the winning of which was 'Photosharks was run by the recently deceased stars of Jaws, Roy Scheider, who wanted to do something different in his retirement.'

More likely they, like us, are devoting all their time to make prank calls on behalf of Barack Obama.

If it is a difficulty of any other reason, may we take this time to offer THE PHOTOMEME HALL OF SHAME BABYSITTING SERVICE in which WE, you noisy upstairs neighbours, will take the keys of your photomemes and after a few minutes of training will get it ticking like a clock once again. We have offered this service in the past and found, to our dismay, that once you get the keys THE DAFT GITS NEVER COME BACK FOR THEM! But if that is the case Moderators of Photosharks, just throw a rock through our window and let us know what we can do to help.

SPEAKING OF HELP!!!!

The Second Edition of the Oxford English Dictionary contains full entries for 171,476 words and over half of these words are nouns, about a quarter adjectives so

((171,476/2)+1)x((171,476-1)/4)= 3,675,523,756 noun phrases.

THIS IS NOT EVEN COUNTING VERB or ADVERBS!

Why are photomemes repeating themes so often?

Eyes: Shutterday, Tuesday Challenge
Old: Shutterday, Lensday*
Game: Photosharks, Thursday Challenge
Nudity/Naked: Shutterday, Moody Monday

We can understand repeating a theme, actually. It's good for the environment by requiring photographers to go outside exhaling all that carbon dioxide and wasting battery power which would need to be recharged off the electrical grid and put there by a dirty coal fired power stations in Poland and the next thing you know they are growing grapes in Germany.

But space them at least TWO weeks apart.

LENSDAY

If you have ever submitted a photo to Lensday, feel free to do it again because they have lost everything.

The good people at Lensday were apparently changing servers or something and lost their archives so now they are back, tabula rasa, all blank slatish as it were. For those of you who like to list your photomeme victories on your photoblogs, NOW is the time to stack the Lensday column.

HELP THE PHOTOMEME HALL OF SHAME!

I pledge to send you Belizean beer and cashews. You need to heat the cashews in the microwave for a minute though to avoid getting worms. Well at least I warned you.
