Imagma that!

Our old friend Putz in Utah took his family on a weekend trip to Sun Valley, Idaho, recently so that his son Daniel could do some bike riding on some awesome trails. On the way, they stopped at Craters of the Moon National Monument and looked at some lava deposits.

Here, in his own inimitable style, is Putz's account of his stay among the idahonians. (A hint to first-time readers of Putz: Just ignore his unique spelling and punctuation and read between the lines to get the full impact.)

Reading Putz’s and Daniel’s posts and seeing Daniel’s pictures reminded me of Otto Hlava, a Czech-American guy I used to work with down in Florida. After I had known him for a few months, I made up the following riddle:

Q. What is Hlava?

A. What comes out of a Hvolcano.

Otto didn’t think it was nearly as funny as I did.

P.S. to Putz: I hope this makes up in some small way for your having been dropped by sissy.


  1. but sissy should not have dropped me<><>i am such a good looking, witty, smart, entertaining guy, and it it was so abrupt and sudden, and cruel

  2. Putz, any delay of mine in responding to your comment should not be interpreted as thinking you are not a good looking, witty, smart, entertaining guy. That, indeed, would be abrupt, and sudden, and cruel.

    I am gratified to see that you used the serial comma properly and that your spelling is flawless.
