World outraged! World sickened!

Smart Car

So you'll be driving down the highway and you'll see one of these 'Smart Cars' and your first thought is:

"Wow...there goes someone that really cares about his carbon footprint!"

Actually that's not what you think.

You think:


Or maybe you think:


Or possibly:


Democrat sometimes comes to mind.

And then you see another 'Smart Car' tootin' down the road and you once again think:


I'm not sure why the Smart Car brings out such rage in us.

The folks driving them are doing some good. Care about the Earth. They save some money on gas.

Sounds almost smart, correct?

WRONG! They're assholes!

They don't care about the Earth.

All they care about is that YOU think they care about the Earth.

But they are Assholes in Dumb Cars.

Or possibly idiots or Democrats.

But even if they're not Democrats can we all agree that they're Assholes?

I thought so.

Tiger swimming beside boat

So let's say you were on a boat and saw a tiger swimming by.

Would that be odd?

Do the large cats actually like to swim?

Or could it be a trained tiger taught to swim?

And why would someone train said tiger to swim?

What is the tiger's name?

Does he have siblings?

Is he swimming far from home or does he live right there next to the river?

Does he eat fish?

Is he happy?

Any battle scars on swimming tiger?

Does he always swim alone?

Can he dive?


Can he hold his breath underwater?

For how long?

Does he wear swim trunks or does he swim naked?

Is he aware of time?

Can this particular tiger surf?

Or is he just a fresh water Big Cat?

Has this tiger ever appeared in the National Geographic?

Does he have religious beliefs or is he just spiritual?

These are just some of the questions I have for Tiger Swimming Beside Boat.

Sunday, August 16, 2009


So last night I'm watching this documentary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

With them there Atom Bombs.

And they're interviewing a survivor.

She remembers her mother's eyes hanging out of their sockets and peoples skin melting off and children everywhere screaming for water and their Mothers!

The whole city in flames! She vividly recounts every detail of the horror and pain and suffering.

A man carrying his headless child thru the flame engulfed streets of the ravaged city.

She said she'll never forget any of it.

How could she?

It was the atom bomb and it wiped out everything in her life.

She'll never forget.



Do you remember that episode of Gilligan's Island where the castaways made plates and cups out of plastic explosive they found on the beach?

And then the monkey got a hold of them and started throwing them around and blowing up stuff?

I'll never forget that.

The Eunice Kennedy Wake

Every mourner got a trophy.


Why is this funny?

Because Eunice started the Special Olympics.

I still don't get why it's funny?

It's funny because in the Special Olympics every kid gets a trophy or ribbon.

Or something.

Or so us non-retarded people are lead to believe.

I still don't get why making fun of retarded kids at the Eunice Kennedy wake would be funny.

Trust is.

Thursday, August 13, 2009

Oh, Friendly''ve done it again!

So for years FRIENDLY'S has offered the Happy Ending sundae.

And for years dirty-minded folks have laughed at said Happy Ending sundae.

"I'd LOVE a Happy Ending Sundae...but how about Saturday night instead??"


And of course people protest and make a big deal about it.

It's harmless and Friendly's doesn't give in.

They still offer Happy Endings.

So today I drive by Friendly's.

On their outside marquee thingy it now reads:



How about Saturday night?

A fribble is a chocolate milk shake.

Kevin Youkilis: sweaty ugly asshole.

Do you follow the Red Sox?

Do you know this guy?

This is Kevin Youkilis...he plays first base, thrid base, and sometimes left field.

He's real good.

He's also a sweaty ugly asshole.

But but but..."He's on our team!"

So what.

He's a sweaty ugly asshole and if he played for any other team you'd hate his guts.

Because he's a sweaty ugly asshole.

But but but...He hustles and plays great defense! He hits for power and average and in the clutch.

Doesn't matter.

He's a sweaty ugly asshole.

But he's our sweaty ugly asshole.


Wifey and her friends call him: '70's Vagina'

I call him sweaty ugly asshole.

What do you call him?

Looking at the Kennedy Family with Rose Kennedy colored glasses

Well...we lost another of The Kennedy Family. Seems Eunice died.

For years we've read about this beautiful, yet tragic family.

Tragic perhaps.


Monday, August 10, 2009

Not only did Eunice Kennedy start the Special Olympics...

She also gave us the universal hand gesture for CAKE.

Or possibly Hoagy.

Or Cousin Saul.

Or you.

The Inconvenient Truth About My Store Hours

On Sunday my store hours are 12:00-5:00.

Around 5:10 yesterday I closed up shop and did my closing routine.

At 5:15 a guy knocks on my door.

GUY: "Are you open?"

ME: "Nope...we closed at 5:00."

GUY: "Everytime I come here you're's very inconvenient"

ME: "What's inconvenient?

GUY: "When I come here and you're closed."

ME: "You should come here when we're open."

GUY: "I mean your store hours are inconvenient."

ME: "I have no choice."

GUY: "Hmmmm."

ME: "Mind if I ask you a question?"

GUY: "Sure...go ahead."

GUY: "I figure you might me open."

ME: "Anything I can help you with today?"

GUY: "I'm looking for a joke gift for my you have any pictures of Gary Cooper?"

GUY: "I'll check tomorrow..."



GUY: "I'm back...just checking for those Gary Cooper pictures."

ME: "I don't have any."

GUY: "I'll check back..."

'Yeah, my blood’s so mad feels like coagulatin’
I’m sitting here just contemplatin’

Today's observation. you're tooling down the highway when you spot a bunch of folks on motorcycles.

Why is that we KNOW they are all together?

When we're tooling down the same highway and spot a bunch of cars it never even enters our mind that they are all together.


Bikers....pack animals.

Car drivers...lone wolf.


That ends today's new feature: Today's Observation.

Thank you.

John Hughes will be taking the rest of the days off.

QUOTES! (as best as I can remember them) n' SNIPPETS


"That reporter is comparing me to Hitler. Let me tell you...if I was Hitler that reporter would be the first in the gas chamber."



"I met that Michael Jackson today...he's very shy and is totally against drugs."



"I could do that...except for the splits."


WIFEY: "My nipples hurt."

ME: "I'll make them feel better later."

DAUGHTER: ' guys are gross. I'm leaving."

WIFEY: "Great way of getting rid of kids...just bring up nipples."



MARK: "Ha! Nice bacon shirt!"

BACON ACE: "That surprises you that a guy with a bacon tattoo would wear a bacon t-shirt?"



GUY: "Can I see that?"

ME: "If you can see through glass."

Welcome back, Squeaky! You've been missed!

Cash for Clunkers

So GOBAMA and his crack team of genius came up with this program designed to get crappy cars off the road and to get folks buying new cars thus saving the US economy.

It seems you trade in your gas-guzzlin' monster for a new car and the dealership destroys your old car, take upwards of $4500.00 of the sticker price of new car, and then the GOVERNMENT reimburses them.

But then the government screwed it all up and ran out of money.

You know...MY money. YOUR money. For a freakin' car dealer.

Why should my money go to a car dealer when Tyrese Gibson buys a new car?

Because the democrats are in charge and they think Tyrese should have my money.

But that really isn't what my rant is about.

My rant is about the name of the program.

Cash for Clunkers.

CASH. For Clunkers.

Come on, People....we can do better than that...

Rubles for RustBuckets?

Okay okay...maybe Cash For Clunkers isn't so bad.

And maybe my rant is really just about GOBAMA taking our money and giving it to car dealers.

How the heck is that fair?

It ain't.


So I'm driving thru the tollbooth this morning when I spot a sticker on said booth.

It said something like:



So I thought about that for a bit.

And little bit longer.

Now I'm no scientist or doctor or anything but I had the cure for cancer pegged as some kinda combination of drugs and natural stuff.

Maybe aspirin cut with lemon juice?

I never would have guessed that wearing a bald cap would rid my body of cancer.

And then I thought some more.

And a bit more.

Do I really want to rid myself of cancer by covering up my beautiful thick head of hair?

I think not.


It's better to look good than to feel good.

Or something.

That's a shirtless Vladimir Putin riding that horse.

I've been waiting to use my title since I started this blog.

Thank you, Comrade Putin!

It's time for SNIPPETS!

WIFEY: "I don't have a pea coat."


A thoughtful mother in the store looking for a gift for her son:

ME: "Anything I can help you with?"

MOTHER: "Do you still have that box of broken toys?"


Someone on Facebook...I forget who:

Kid at the store:

KID: "Do you have anything for $6.00 or less?"

ME: "I have thousands and thousands of things for $6.00 or less...take a look around."

KID: "Can you show me?"


Crazy guy named Jason:

CRAZY JASON: "Do you know how I have a fat belly?"

ME: "Yes."


At a restaurant/bar with Hoagy:

HOAGY: "I'll have the mixed grill with potatoes and rice."

BARTENDER: "We'll call you Two-Starch Charlie."


Guy selling me his dead dad's stuff:

ME: "...or you could sell these on ebay."

GUY: "I'm an electrician...I know nothing about the internet and how it works."

ME: "Do you collect anything yourself?"

GUY: "Poetry."


TELE-WEASEL: "Hi...I'm calling on behalf of Verizon."

ME: "You work for Verizon?"

TELE-WEASEL: "Yes...on their behalf."

ME: "But you don't ACTUALLY work for them, correct?"

TELE-WEASEL: "I do...on their behalf."

ME: "But you don't get a paycheck from Verizon, correct?"

So I'm sitting around with my pal Hoagy the other night and we're discussing our time in the Peace Corps when all of a sudden The Hoag switched gears.

Here is that conversation:

HOAGY: "See you later, Alligator!"

ME: "Huh?"

HOAGY: "See you later, Alligator!"

ME: "What are you talking about?"

HOAGY: "I'm gonna make that famous again."

ME: "What are you gonna make famous again?"

HOAGY: The expression "See You Later, Alligator."

ME: "In a while, Asshole."

A dry sense of humor

The picture is a closeup of my clothes dryer at home.

It's a clothes dryer. An appliance used for drying wet clothes.

One of the settings is 'Less Dry'.

Why would I want my clothes less dry? I want them dry. It's why I put them in the DRYER. Is there a group of folks I don't know about that walk around in damp clothes? (probably folks from India...because they leave the friggin' dryer door open!)

Another setting is 'Normal Dry'... which I assume dries your clothes in a normal fashion.

Is there an abnormal method of drying that I'm not aware of?

Maybe Westinghouse has that?

Or something.

And finally we come to 'More Dry'...can something be 'More Dry' than dry? If it's dry...why would you want it more dry?

It's dry!!!


"But you need them MORE dry!!"

My dryer is stupid.
