How the Viet Cong make my life better.

Sounds weird, huh?

What you are about to read is true. All of it. I swear on the life of one of my kids (but not the other one...just in case)

So how do the Viet Cong make my life better? First off who are the Viet Cong? In simple terms they were the 'bad guys' during the Vietnam War. If you need more information go buy a book. No...not Harry Potter....buy a book on the Viet Cong.

So anyhow:

Late at night I turn the lights off and sometimes watch TV and usually forget which is the channel button and which is the volume button.

This is where the Viet Cong come in.

You see, the volume button is on the left of the remote and the channel buttons are on the right.

Volume=Viet. Channel=Cong. Viet=Left. Cong =Right.

V=Volume AND Viet.
C=Channel and Cong.

See? It's a simple way of remembering. I'll be on the couch, in the dark, and I'll need to turn up the Volume....I say 'VIET CONG' and then I know the Volume is on the left. I say 'VIET CONG and then I know the channel button is on the right.

I'm just glad we weren't at war with the Volume Channels.

(sometimes i just think: 'the volume is on the left')

Small world. I use the term "Vintage Chablis" for the same purpose. Except, when I say it out loud I usually wake up two days later in Las Vegas...Maybe I should change words.

Lamont: According to Popular Mechanics, you can make your own television with a cinderblock, a Sharpie, and one or two controlled substances...I think you can use a magnet to change channels if you wear a tin foil hat (as I do).

Viet Cong....interesting.

Personally, I use the phrase "Viva Chardonnay!"

It's much more infrastructure friendly.

You people are turning me into a ::sips:: lush.

I watch tv late at night in the dark, too...but my remote is a clever Canadian one: it has a light on it.

Of course, I can't always find the button that makes it light up...but let's not go there.

So, wait, did we go to war for the Viet Cong's contribution to tv watching, then? I'm so confused...
