How about Google Images for “fun”?

Most of the images that come up, at least on the first page, are about the band Fun:


The name of that Fun song reminds me of London.

We saw lots of these t-shirts in London:

My original Google Images search, this morning, was on the word “fun.” Here’s another image that came up for that search:


That image reminds me of the wonderful blog, toemail, self-described as “PICTURES OF TOES, PICTURES OF FEET, MAKING THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE, ONE FOOT AT A TIME.”

Which reminds me of this other image, which came up for “fun”:


I can easily get distracted when I’m having fun.

I guess that’s the whole point, isn’t it?

One more image, that came up for “fun”:


I wanted to end with this image, because my original thought, when choosing this topic today, was about having fun tomorrow, Friday, when I give a presentation at work.

Because I think I can!

Thanks for reading, everybody.
