He's cooling his heels in the big house. Or striving to reach his Annual Manual goal. One of the two.

Is that to say he's a sales rep for Isthmus? Now I've heard everything.

He was kidnapped mid-sentence while working on his blog.

I thought that was a euphemism for masturbation.

Uncle Jimbo was called up for a secret reconnaissance mission somewhere over there to fight the drug dealing terrorists who we don't want over here. As we speak, he is running, grease-painted face, dagger clenched in teeth, through a poppy field in Afganistan, chasing after bin laden's yard boy.

But I bet he got a video of that which he posted to YouTube with his last dying battery.

Here's a screen capture of Uncle Jimbo's latest video diary entry. I know he's brave, but his words and eyes say, "I'm scared, get me the hell out of here!"

This is a much better image than that of him hustling ads for the Annual Manual. I choose to believe it.

Oh no, he's back.

Cordially,

Well, I think I prefer the fruity right-winger Jimbo of old to the new and improved stalker-obsessed Jimbo who's following around war protesters with some delusional impression that he's cataloguing their un-americanism.

Seriously, someone ought to look into whether old Jim has some family that can check up on him before he straps explosives to his chest and blows up the Terrace.

He doesn't sound well, if you ask me.
