In these difficult days, we all need inspiration. Everyone understands the importance of inspiration. The Bumbastories research team found these inspirational posts in the Bumbastories archives (old posts from seven, eight years ago!). For all those seeking inspiration, here are some magical, meaningful moments, rather some moments that are imbued with meaning… Er.. I mean… moments… er…. I mean significant moments that are…er….. Excuse me. … Continue reading Inspirational Barnyard Noises

Inspirational Fruits and Vegetables ?????

They say that a picture tells a thousand words…. And that’s probably a couple dozen more words than anyone wanted to hear in the first place… Nevertheless, the wisdom of fresh produce remains a source of inspiration (and roughage) for the poet and green grocer alike! Here are two inspirational and (thankfully) very brief poems:   I know a fruit and I ain’t tellin’ But … Continue reading Inspirational Fruits and Vegetables ?????

Inspiration, Religion, Polytheism, and Cement Animal Sculptures

OK. I confess to letting everyone down. I relapsed. As you may know from previous posts, I announced, indeed I proclaimed, last year that I was going “cold turkey” – although in this case I suppose I should have said “cold elephant” – in regard to and vis-à-vis my spiritual attachment to cement animal sculptures. I even publicly (on this very blog!) renounced and forswore any … Continue reading Inspiration, Religion, Polytheism, and Cement Animal Sculptures

Cement Ice-Age Animal Sculptures Speak Out Again!

It’s been a while since any Cement Animal Sculpture posts have appeared here at Bumbastories. Bumba’s prolonged, and frighteningly pathological period of dependence on cement animal sculptures for spiritual guidance had ended…… Or so we thought. Unfortunately, Bumba could resist tempation no longer. We can see here that Bumba, who, it turns out, lives only three blocks from the famous La Brea Tar Pits, has … Continue reading Cement Ice-Age Animal Sculptures Speak Out Again!

A Thanksgiving Card from the Cement Elephants

Happy Thanksgiving. Bumbastories has already posted this Thanksgiving Greeting from the cement elephants twice, but what the heck. On a serious note, it is incumbent on us to mention that Bumba has maintained a long abstinence from all spiritual contact – and indeed any and all forms of communication – with any and all cement animal sculptures. See cement animal sculpture compendium for full description of Bumba’s semi-heroic, but … Continue reading A Thanksgiving Card from the Cement Elephants

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from the Cement Elephants. Truth be told, these models of Ice-Age mammoths are made of plastocene not cement. They stand proudly outside Los Angeles’ magnificent Tar Pits Museum, which is a wonderful place and you ought to visit as soon as you can. However, in my wicked past, I did a whole series of these tongue in cheek (or trunk in cheek?) cement … Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving

Worried

Contrary to the wisdom of the great American statesman and bon vivant, Alfred E. Newman who said “What, me worry?”, we at Bumbastorie are suffering from a high level of concern. OK, we’re worried. Worried that the American people will not take mass action to impeach this President. We need to get the democratic reform process going before it’s too late! When Mueller’s report comes out, we … Continue reading Worried
