The Yogi's nose is strong!

The Yogi has a great nose for sniffing out bullshit and stupid americans.

The yogi loves pussy, contrary to popular belief and whatever he sez..

and yet, he is from the same place as you and I.. His presence in my life has been a gift. See you soon, Werner.

Occam's razor (also written as Ockham's razor from William of Ockham, and in Latin lex parsimoniae) is a principle of parsimony, economy, or succinctness used in logic and problem-solving. It states that among competing hypotheses, the one that makes the fewest assumptions should be selected. (Wikipedia)

Werner’s Knife is a principle of rhetoric employed in epistemological arguments that asserts that the holders of opposing views are “stupid Americans”.

nice ones Mr. Haan

pussy to the contrary notwithstanding, I'd bet that Herr Braun loves dogs too!

and

be careful, the first cut is the deepest

one question I would have asked Occam - do you shave?

one question I would ask Herr Braun - where you from sa?

He's cat-alonian, estupido amigo Americano!

As to Damocles' Sword, Werner's never been to Sucicide or Tahquitz.

Hard to believe.

But absolute truth.

From the cat's mouth.

But he has "dated" a climber.

RonA, you have something else, a different kind of hold what with your taxidermy. Utter realism, the more of it the better in your work. Unnuanced, direct.

Well yeah,, i suppose,, but i do try for a blend of the abstract within presentations sometimes..Some artists are good at alternative presentations of the subject.. I remember a friend, and well known Taxidermist Stephan Savides doing a rooster once, that was jumping up at his reflection in a table top mirror.. It was brilliant!
When i see your creations, i see much of that-- off the beaten path sort of approach. And i ADMIRE!...

edit: I do however see a standard art practice here, in the heaven-man and earth compositions within your pictures. Positive an neg space use is there as well.. And all well done!

"That's right where I want you," she said, balancing on his schnozz..."No harder than a cross word puzzle or a Jumbles. *Sigh*"

As for Occam, foccam.

Deekaid, change, if only for one day, is good.

I recall the term "prison wall" coming from Werner, Merry goes to LA to take care of family stuff every season, so why the heck hasn't he, other than he hasn't been invited, maybe?

I think it's stupid for you not to have climbed or climb at Lily Rock if you have a regard for the past in the Valley.

That's my opinion, Werner.

Moosedrool, do you really think you can just hang Werner on a wall?

Just about anybody that posts here would know how to get down, especially Werner.

Yes, so true .....

Whenever I go on a wall I cry like a little girl.

So instead of hanging me on a wall one should always just throw me into the dumpster ......

My bud from Eben Junction had a bumper sticker:

"See ya to da U.P., eh?"

Werner has some pins he (my bud Kelly, not WBraun) and I bought to use on our ATTEMPT at Lurking Fear.

There were knifeblades on that rack, and some bugaboos, and on the wall were more bugaboos, and gobies besides.

And dry heaves and subsequent lack of will and growth of won't on the route so we bailed after bag-heaving.

There is no point to those knifeblades, as there's no point to this thread, except in the minds of others besides me, who may have read

Somethin'.
