You could say this sign is GOAT

To many people, the sign says, “Don’t feed the goat,” but there are always unfortunate people whose brains won’t immediately put the icons together and conclude this. The most outrageous possibility will be, “Careful! This goat bites Italians (making their … Continue reading

RIP Howard Hesseman

Sad to see him pass. Glad I met him briefly at WizWorld with Lonnie Anderson. I could blame him partially for my bad career/college choices via Dr. Johnny Fever; I wanted to be a DJ or work in radio. It … Continue reading

More Caturday and why pizza boxes have holes

Look out Pizza Rat, here’s Pizza Cat! Actually, I do know why the boxes have holes, some of the heat has to vent out or else the pizza would be all sweaty. I could see one of Jennifer’s cats trying … Continue reading

The jury remains out…for now, as I too work in the Customer Service field so I have sympathies with the other side which is really being put to the test tonight. My home remodeling has decided to happen at the … Continue reading

1302: Dante expelled from Florence

As many famous Italians artists of the Renaissance, we Americans only know the writer by Dante’s first name and are often stumped when asked, it’s Alighieri. The world also just knew him for his poetry but full-time writing came somewhat … Continue reading

This month’s Astronomy joke

Yes, I know. If a joke requires the recipient to think about it too long, then it’s either not funny or the audience is dumb. I side with the latter camp since everyone should know this regarding the famous constellation. … Continue reading

Those who don’t learn from History…try to sanitize it

I wouldn’t be surprised if these were the posters Youngkin circulated around Virginia to solidify the White Trash and Centrist (aka Polite Racist) votes. How I wish Jim Kelly (the star on the poster) were still alive, he would’ve been … Continue reading

He’s everyone’s savior and wingman!

He’s the only co-pilot I know who can magically pay with cash, grass or ass, the latter by calling in favors owed to him by Mary Magdalene. Jesus learned the hard way that nobody would give him a ride for … Continue reading

1957: Wham-O produces the first Frisbees

You’d think this toy had its origins in the Fifties as plastic was getting rolled out into the wonder substance for everything: toys, car parts, food storage, etc. Oddly, name comes from a baker in 1871 called The Frisbie Pie … Continue reading

RIP Louie Anderson

At least his career went out on a high note with Baskets on FXX. Now that the show has wrapped up, I need to watch it since local fave Martha Kelly was in it too. If you are a Gen Xer, … Continue reading

YES! Operation Manhattan is back on track

Today, I successfully refinanced my house for what I hope is the last time. There were a couple times to help pay off the debts via Somara’s student loans and to give her partial ownership. Then to punish Wells Fargo. … Continue reading

GenCon & San Diego Comic Con for Dumb Bros & Proud Boys

I can already smell the horrible mixture of Axe Body Spray, Teslas and Failure. I’m not exactly sure the world needs more “Alphas” such as these clones. Obviously, the people behind this gathering in the Mormon Vatican have never read Brave … Continue reading

Oh yeah, poor Cowboys were the only “upset”

Of all the teams to lose to the wild card (49ers), it had to be them while the others had close calls but succeeded in advancing, damn it, can’t stand the Chiefs, especially their smug QB. On the upside, my … Continue reading

Millenials can’t get a break with Boomers

I can completely relate since I heard a similar litany spoken in 2000 when I was a younger person in the Eighties. Then the 2008 counterattack was “You didn’t listen to me and got a degree in something completely useless … Continue reading
