Yellow-ribbon Jesus-fish convergence

I spent untold hours buring $2.50-per-gallon gas on our nation's interstate traffic jam this weekend (taking my mother to a friend's 65th wedding anniversary). While in one of the innumerable stop-and-go situations, I saw something on the back of the car in front of me that brought it all together: a support-our-troops yellow ribbon, in which the yellow ribbon was in the shape of a jesus fish. I only wish I had a camera handy.

I haven't been able to track down a picture of one of these beauties on the web. If one of my reader(s) finds one, please send it along!

I should have gotten another Tip o' the Pin!

In a previous post, I mentioned the Tip o' the Pin that I got from Bill Griffith, creator of Zippy the Pinhead, for sending him photos of the now-famous Quebec Coke-and-Hotdog Man. Now I discover that C-and-H Man is actually one of Claude's alter egos. But do I get another Tip o' the Pin? Apparently not - it went instead to Carter Harris, whoever he is. I don't mean to be greedy, but as my father used to say, "what's fair is fair."
