Disco Sucks, F*ck Everything

Has anyone ever noticed those green box things that control traffic lights? Well, they are green here, I don't know about other places. Someone here in town (that's what we call our central city) noticed them and proceeded to paste really lame poetry on them. Freedom of expression and all that I guess. Beneath one of the poems was written "Disco Sucks, F*ck Everything". How profound is that? The weird thing is, the poem had nothing to do with disco and clearly did not involve everything.
San Nakji's Pooch, who has been kicked out of our house for excessive scratching, and I went for a walk last night. Walking through our local park, I saw an awesome sight. Three swallows (maybe they were... maybe they were just funny looking sparrows) were sitting on three reeds in the middle of a little pond. I reached for my super zoom camera, remembering that I actually didn't have one. So the Time picture of the year will have to wait.
I was thinking that it would be great to have a camera attached to your eye. Nicely tucked away in the skull, it would enable you to take a photo of anything you looked at. Like the Bionic Man you could also have a zoom function, or was that the Bionic Woman? My only worry about this would be that you would want to be sure that the camera was replaceable. There would be nothing worse than getting stuck with a 4 megapixel camera in your head when everyone else is on the 100 megapixel 3D cameras... Just a thought.

San Nakji for President!

Weird idea! Better stick with always having a camera in your bag like I do.
You never know, one day walking the dog, you might just be first on the scene as the drunk driver, pursued by secret agents disguised as paparazzi,helps to bump off the mother to the heir tho the throne while she's giving the Mulsim son of a shopkeeper a blowjob, in A Parisien tunnel!
You'll need that camera then if you want to be rich!
Until them it comes in handy for taking decidedly average snaps of everyday life, like I do!

That sounds like brain surgery.
