coincidence?

Postby harry ashburn » Thu Jun 14, 2012 12:41 pm

I was searching the "Evening at the Improv" website for a comic i had seen many moons ago, funniest comic i ever saw, but didn't know his name. finally, i found it. Geoff Bolt. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXXpm7XfFfQ I grabbed a pad and pen to write down the name. On the pad was written, in big bold letters: "BOLT"! huh! Over a year ago, I had written it down as a reminder to buy a new bolt for my gate. That was the only thing written on the page. Whadda ya think?

Just was reading about a turtle named Bolt in the news. The turtle name reminded me of Usain Bolt - one of the fastest sprinters in the world, and interestingly, "Usain Bolt" anagrams into "I also bunt."

I like that :bigsmile - also think that this particular anagram also qualifies as an antigram, which has an opposite meaning of the original words; although this particular one is unique, in the fact that Bolt reaches base, because of his unexpected bunt.

Makes me want to watch more baseball too!

I hate baseball. Did you remember to buy the bolt?

actually, i decided the gate was too heavy and unwieldy to fix by myself... so i hired some guys to fix it.
