That’s a bowl full of pigs blood. Imagine a river full.


You know, when a Texas meat-packing company gets indicted for sending a torrent of pigs blood down the Trinity River — and I do mean a torrent, i.e. enough for it to be documented by an amateur’s281323986 drone aircraft — what are you going to do? You’re going to go with it.

The amazing swarm


What do you do with miniature robo-drones that fly in amazing formations? If you’re a scientist, you call them “nano quadrotors.” But if you’re someone like me, you just go with them.

We have no seasons here. But it’s still fall.


It’s a brilliant, blue-sky, perfect-temperature fall day in Santa Barbara, but fall here isn’t like fall in non-paradisiacal places. Ergo, when you have a photo of a sugar maple turned red next to a 20-foot-tall yucca, both of which frame Hollywood-esque palm trees in the background, you just have to go with it.

They’re just like frat boys


When you come across an article with the headline, “Deep-sea Squid Mate Indiscriminately,” and then, reading into it, find this wonderful bit of sexy description…

In the deep sea, scientists suspect that squid courtship involves little romance and lots of pirate warfare. When males spot a passing female, they smear them with sperm-laden globs called spermatophores, using obscenely long organs. Once plopped down, the spermatophores likely burst open, releasing clingy sperm pouches that then glom onto the female’s torso and tentacles.

…well, what’re you going to do? Go with it, of course.

Sorry. Not just yet.


When you come across exactly what all your enemies have been looking for for decades now and haven’t gotten, you just have to go with it.

Cowless in Ventura


If you had a mess of photos from the Ventura County Fair and your daughter had won a giant stuffed cow, you’d go with the pictures, too. You know you would. Even if you didn’t get a shot of the cow.

No butter needed


When you have let an artichoke flower rather than eat it, you go with it. In purple.
