XXV Non Sequiturs (Karnival ta' X'Ghandu X'Jaqsam?)

Image hosted by

Non Sequitur, latin for "it does not follow". A Non Sequitur is a statement that normally jars with the flow of thought in a particular discussion. It can also be present in a monologue or presentation when a particular part of the argument again does not fit in the general theme. In Maltese a Non Sequitur is normally followed by "X'ghandu x'jaqsam?" which can be closely translated as "What does this have to do with what we have just been saying?". Non Sequitur is also a brilliant comic strip by Wiley Miller which features the hero Obviousman.

In J'Accuse the regular Non Sequitur feature is used to place irrelevant titbits of factual information or as a comic pause between posts. As its title implies it is generally a bit of information which does not require any further comment. It is not, as Mark used to insist, Blogging for the sake of Blogging. I love a good Non Sequitur as much as any other post which is appreciated by others. So here is a mini-carnival... a complilation of the first 25 Non Sequiturs to appear in J'Accuse:
