THE PRODIGAL ODD

ODDMAN has returned to posting things that are just a bit different. I would like to say a big, Thank You, to everyone for all of the kind words and your patience. Even the best of hobbies gets to you after a while and you just have to take a break from it. I’m back a day earlier than planned but I had to make sure that Deacon didn’t steal all the rum. He’s kinda sneaky that way… Have a great day, and it’s good to be back.

    Glad you’re back!
    reading your posts are a great distraction for me-usually at the end of a long day.
    On the bright side I did go back through the archives and read some of your old ones.
    Like I said always a good spot in my day.
    Thank you and my best regards to you, Mrs. Oddman, and the Oddling.

    Welcome back.

    I wouldn’t begrudge you an ad here or there to help pay for your obviously hard work on this site.

    That Miss World comic is really dark and sad once your brain comes up with the back story to it. :<

    It’s great to have you back, Oddman. Take rests when needed and as Mike said, a few ads would be fine so you could make some $ or pay for the site etc. We like your work!

  9. ODDMAN February 4, 2017 at 8:08 am #

    I am not going to run a few ads on ODDMAN. I don’t need the money in order to do this. Once I start taking money for advertising, the blog doesn’t remain a hobby, it then becomes a business. I am doing this for fun. I could get t-shirts made up about that… I DO IT FOR FUN.

    Welcome back. Here’s hoping the time off restored your spirits! Do what you need to do to keep the odd going, we will all understand. And if someone doesn’t we shall create the Guards of Odd and hurl Monty Python jokes at them!

      Bring me a shrubbery. Then you shall pass.

    Nice to have you back!

  12. Darren February 4, 2017 at 9:20 am #

    YES! ODD LIVES!

  13. The Fan February 4, 2017 at 9:30 am #

    Wellcome back. 😀

  14. George Nicholas February 4, 2017 at 10:07 am #

    I’ve used your break to purge some things in my life. Now that I no longer have a facebook account I need you more than ever. Will you marry me? Thanks for the distraction Oddman, welcome back!

  15. John R February 4, 2017 at 10:18 am #

    YAY!!!!!!

  16. Kathy February 4, 2017 at 10:46 am #

    Glad to have you back. I really enjoy this site everyday. It is a weird spot, that helps to brighten my day.

  17. Jim February 4, 2017 at 11:14 am #

    Your daily Oddman posts are the first thing that I check each morning, many thanks for returning.

    FOREVER ODD!

    Welcome Back! Just so you know I would totally buy an Oddman T-Shirt!!

  19. Deacon February 4, 2017 at 11:19 am #

    Soooooo he has returned…..or as my Irish grandmother use to say …. “look what the cat dragged in”.

    As I look out the window and contemplate the sun (yes that large glowing ball in the sky that we haven’t seen much of lately)……it comes to mind that there may be some meteorological association between Oddman, and the weather, not to mention the rotation of the earth. Screw those rodents living in the ground that people idolize every Feb 2…..we have Oddman on Feb 4!! If he crawls out of his front door and shields his eyes and says ““damn is that ever bright””!…..then we will have an early spring. Think about it……what has more appeal…….a thousand people gathered around a cage waiting for a ground rat to come out ……or a thousand people surrounding the front door of the OddHouse waiting for the Odd opening his front door and venturing out in his Superman jammies and Green Lantern faux-fur housecoat. Hummmm the evil thoughts running through my mind are just overwhelming.

    – Yes, different people do awaken different beasts.
    – Stonehenge …..I have often chuckled to myself privately as I considered that it may have been a big joke. Who said people back then didn’t have a sense of humour. Or it may have been a massive make work project by some leader just to keep people busy. Or maybe it was a large nudist colony and woven canopies were strung between the stones. Or maybe it was the first wall erected by a family known as Drumpf, but having acquired enormous ridicule from the population they changed their name to Trump and decided to travel the world to spread stupidity.
    – Mary Ellen I had read about before but her and many other instances similar of where ‘we’ as a society were cruel and unjust always makes me think that when we now stand on our high self made pedestals and profess to be so perfect as we chastise other countries and people and traditions …..that we seem to forget that not all that long ago….we were the same. There’s an old Irish saying found inscribed in an Irish church that goes something like this >>>> “If we were born where they were born and we were taught what they were taught, then we would believe what they believe”.
    – “Are You Happy”? We should be. We have no idea how good we have it compared to the lives of others on this blue globe.

    Great to have you back Oddman.

    OH !!……….. and I don’t steal rum. I leave it right where it is and drink it. Technically it isn’t stolen until I leave with it and if you have a bathroom…..

    Welcome back! ^_^ I must stay this post has cleared out all of my stress from the week. Thank you! ^_^

    When I first saw Stonehenge I feel like I was alone, but yet I wasn’t alone since I was surround by other visitors and I stood there thinking is really cool, but what is the reason for it? It was a cool day. 🙂

    At work, I have a tendency to leave my water bottle with other people..once I remember where it is I have to go back and go get it..and it usually ends up with a good laugh. 🙂

    It’s the season for taxes, so I must hang out in the office and deal with a select people who have no clue how taxes work, but clam they know everything about them..oh well…it just reminds me why I became a special education teacher…exactly this helps more than you know. ^_-

    Anyways, welcome back!!!!

    Have a good one,

    Welcome back! I hope you are sufficiently recharged and well. Drowning in Trumpville…

    Welcome back!!
    Your blog is usually scheduled for me between a few (“real”) news sites and Facebook in my personal order of morning web viewing. I’ve been finding it more and more important over the past year as I have difficulty spending time on FB or even finding it enjoyable with notable exceptions. And I do like catching up with trends and family at home.
    I’m a US expat living in Australia and travel the world quite extensively for work. The majority of my FB friends are in the US and many have turned into “Wingnuts”. That seems better than “crazy bigoted xenophobic right wing nut jobs” well its shorter anyway. And this past week without the Oddman break between the news and FB has been difficult. I noticed a similar cord in the comments especially when you announced your break. And I wonder how many of your viewers have similar habits and issues. The reason I mention this, is my viewing time on FB has been way down without Oddman before FB. So maybe FB should be paying. My hunch is that many of your viewer are like myself. My Schedule with Oddman is: News (informed and depressing), Other News (other informed and depressing), Oddman (different view, entertaining, not mean spirited and Oddly uplifting), (I find Puns to be the lowest form of humour), FaceBook (no practical information and now with added crazy from people you previously respected). If I take Oddman out of the equation, well you see the result. And though I love women and seeing them in various states of dress and undress it really doesn’t provide the break.
    Sorry for the rambling as I really just wanted to say Welcome back and Thanks.

    Jeff
