You know when's the best time to rack leaves?



Never. Never is the best time. Leaves are the earth's bacon, don't deprive the earth of its bacon.

It'll be okay, Paul. We don't love superheros for their spelling and grammar.

Captain America shouldn't have to rake leaves. That's what kids are for.

Paul, I'm pretty sure you can edit the caption on the new upload page.
Posted: Nov 2nd, 2009 - 8:35am -
wiseacre says:
@Brandon - How do I get that? I know I can upload a new (same) image with a new caption, but that would delete all the comments, etc
Posted: Nov 2nd, 2009 - 8:37am -
brandon says:
Whoops, never mind. Still, a stunning shot. And I'm glad to see Captain America back.

Superheros lead normal lives too......woo

wiseacre says:
@mattyc & @jar the earth eating bacon is too obvious, bacon is natures bookmark, not its food.

@PatchyStache - good point, I need to find that. I think the boy has stolen it (and must be thwarted)

@stanislaw - i wish i could take credit, i'm merely transcribing the words that come out of his mouth; just ask @chrisbergman -- he's seen the boy in action

I like how miniature Cptn looks, raking the leaves just like all of us other miniatures that rake leaves.

There's the Captain America we really love. Now I can truly say, welcome back to Whiskerino Paul.

@gfmorris yes, as easy as it is for me to be on the field during a bengals game; but what about sitting on the goal light as it flashes!!?

can't wait to see you in the suit later, with a full beard!

wiseacre says:
@CreativeLiberty -- I did those in .345 millseconds. Nope, wait ... scratch that. I did that in 45 minutes. Captain America is hurting from this recession too. I have no idea why that affects his physical abilities, yet ... there it is.

@Daniel When a man in a Captain America suit asks my kids to rake his leaves, I'm calling the police. Or the A-Team.

Think of it this way: if you could edit your caption, the comments about it wouldn't make sense.

You're brilliant, by the way.

don't rake just leaf it for the wind.

yeah, sorry.

Phil says:
"Racking" is what we called kicking someone in the balls when I was a kid. So yeah I want to kick all the leaves in the balls.

Bacon, I want to do the opposite to. Whatever that is. Something dirty.

gfmorris says:
@wiseacre I could probably get @Pip and I in front of the goal judge and have him light the lamp. That's the extent of the shenanigans I can pull, though.

Cap doesn't rake leaves, Cap scares leaves into a pile.

Marko says:
Good to see the Captain out but he should be tired from killing bad guys, not raking leaves!
Posted: Nov 2nd, 2009 - 1:37pm -
themightyjones says:
Captain America never really was a match for leaves, particularly the kind pictured here (Mongolian Blood Leaves, I'd say). Too bad you don't have your shield. They'll start shooting soon. It's all downhill from there.

I bet that suit is hot.

@iamaaronmartin: you'd have to ask the wife, she might think its hot. its cool here in the Ohio. Its more "snug" than hot.

david.bean says:
Captain A has put on some pounds in the hips. He probably needs some cardio via raking the leaves.

Matty O says:
I was going to say "3:15 pm. That's the best time." But then you threw out this tremendous logic including earth and it's need of bacon and I just want all the leaves to hurry up and get down on the the ground.

I'm wondering what your neighbors think when they look up from doing the dishes out of the kitchen window and see you raking leaves in a Captain American outfit.
Posted: Nov 3rd, 2009 - 7:33am -
wiseacre says:
@iamaaronmartin: my neighbors are probably very aware of my oddness. i think that's probably why they never look me in the eye (aside from the fact that I scream when they do)
