Dr. Joan Bushwell's Chimpanzee Refuge

Shelley at Retrospectacle tagged the Chimp Refuge for a Thinking Blogger Award Hey, thanks, Shelley, but when you mention “scathing wit,” we know you’re talking about Kev and Jim because women just aren’t funny.

Anyway, the rules for the tag you’re it blogger game are to be found here at The Thinking Blog

Here are the rules (via the Thinking Blog – see link):

Should you choose to participate, please make sure you pass this list of rules to the blogs you are tagging. I thought it would be appropriate to include them with the meme.

The participation rules are simple:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn’t fit your blog – see link to Thinking Blog).

And below the fold….

Here are the Doc Bushwell candidates for Thinking Blogger Awards. In addition to the sweet gold graphic, the recipients will get three raucous pant-hoots and a 10 minute nit-picking and grooming session.


Pharma Gossip
Looking beyond the spin of Big Pharma PR. But encouraging gossip. Come in and confide, you know you want to! “I’ll publish right or wrong. Fools are my theme, let satire be my song.” Email: pharmagossip(at)hotmail.co.uk

I love this blog. I mean, love it. If I think I bite the hand that feeds me, I am not even worthy to lick to boots of Pharma Gossip. My hat’s off to you. Viciously funny (’cause it’s true) commentary on the Pharma Biz.

Words of Advice for Young People
Being a collection of random observations, interesting and/or amusing links, and occasional original thoughts.

My favorite Hoosier rationalist. Chock full of sardonic folksy commentary. Oscar Wilde in Oskkosh overalls.

Strolling with a skeptical biochemist

A kindred spirit, a man after my own heart, separated at birth…well, maybe not quite that. I like Larry’s blog, and he offers an interesting mix of posts.

Jesus’ General
An 11 on the manly scale of absolute gender.

One of my favorite lefty blogs.

Lisa Paitz Spindler
When danger is a gal’s best friend

Writer of original science fiction. Lisa also provides feminist commentary on writing, cinema, and TV in the science fiction-fantasy genre as well as other stuff. Check out her Danger Gal Friday. Her latest feature on Emma Peel, my TV heroine for all time, was fabulous.

    Wow! What can I say, except thank you.

    Too kind.

    Makes it all worthwhile.

    Oh wow. Thanks Doc Bushwell! Emma Peel is surely an inspiration to me too.
