Forget Selling Refrigerators At The North Pole

Makes as much sense.

I just saw an ad for a self-tanning mousse product. Nothing remarkable except the channel I saw it on: Arise TV, a Nigeria TV Live channel.

How do you know when your boss hates you? When they tell you to sell self-tanning mousse in Nigeria. I'll have to find someone in Lagos to tell me what they think of the ads.

Cat and Door Riddle

Here's a riddle. Cat owners will get it.

Question: Imagine two identical rooms connected by a door. Place a cat in one of the rooms and close the door. Occasionally open the door. Which room does the cat want to be in?

Answer: The other room. 

What is that? I have the A/C on in the bedroom and keep the door shut. If I let Dora into the bedroom she starts to dig at the carpet near the door to get out so she's banned. Alfred just camps out at the door and if I let him into the bedroom he camps out at the door on the other side. Only if I go into the bedroom Alfred will trot in and crash out next to me.

I've lived with cats most of my life and still wonder what goes on between those furry ears.

I love word play and I love me some SpaceX so I get a kick out of some of the names they give to various recovery ships

Ms. Tree, formerly known as Mr. Steven, and its sister ship, Ms. Chief are marine vessels chartered by SpaceX as platforms for recovery of rocket payload fairings. 

Then it dawned on me who must be coming up with the names.

Mr.Hugh Morris, of course!
