NEWSFLASH -- Airplane Crash (Flight 1549) in New York NOT an Accident!

How to Make Your Very Own Motivational Posters

One of my favorite web sites of all time is Despair. It has some of the best motivational poster parodies I've ever seen. I go there when I'm really depressed or bummed out about something.

It's like watching Springer. No matter how bad your plight, there's always somebody else out there worse off than you. And that IS motivating!!!

Here's a link from that gives you 4 Apps To Make Your Own Motivational Posters.

Now, you too can be like Despair.

A Couple Quick Rants

Who the hell are these people who think Barack Obama is not the President? They think because the rightwing nut job Supreme Court Chief Justice screwed up the Oath of Office that somehow Obama hasn't been sworn in?

Oh, and it doesn't matter one hill of beans that he took the damned Oath again? Oh, but it wasn't on a bible!

Who gives a flying fukc? And it wasn't televised, so nobody knows what happened?

See the problem here? Nobody could see it, yet they report what happened!

Okay, last rant. Why do people cling to the concept that it's a RIGHT to own a firearm? It simply is not said in the US Constitution, which these idiots always claim is the case. No, the Supreme Court has upheld that it's a right, but that doesn't mean it says so in the USC. They interpret the Constitution. That doesn't mean they got it right.

Anyway, I'm done.

Canseco and Bonaduce to Brawl

Oh, I can't wait. Jose Canseco, former Oakland A's slugger and admitted steroid user, is fighting Danny Bonaduce in a celebrity boxing match tomorrow night.

"Hoser" is 6-4 and 260 pounds while Bonaduce is 5-6 and 180 pounds. It looks very lopsided, on paper. Bonaduce, the former Partridge family drummer, didn't look all that great against former Brady Bunch star Barry Wiliams, who played the oldest Brady boy, Greg.

But he looked great when he turned "Jonny Fairplay" on his ear and slammed him into the ground.

From the story:
Enter Canseco.

"People want to see him get beat up," Feldman said. "That's what it's all about."
Yes, they do!

Left Handed Presidents

I'm left-handed, so whenever I see stuff like this, my first thought is, "Ohmygod, the country's going to Hell in a handbasket!"

But then I compose myself and figure, if it's worked in the past, it very well might work in the present...

Did you know that Clinton, Bush I, Reagan, and Ford were all left-handed? Barack Obama, too (he's black, too, in case you didn't notice).

I find all of this too hard to believe. Does this mean I could one day be President of the United States? Will the US survive long enough for that cold day in Hell to happen? Or will it wait for me to become president, and then convulse once or twice and die a violent death?

I dunno. But I can say with all honesty and zero humor: This is a great day!

Not just because Barack Obama has already done more for the nation in one day than George Bush Jr has done in 8 years (most of it negative, so it counts against him), but because our democracy, despite everything against it, lives on and keeps on doing what it's supposed to do.

Hats off to you, America!

How My Mind Works

I just dropped off my 3-year-old at school this morning, when I drove past one of the mom's parking her car on the street. Her car was a Hummer.

Next thought: What does a guy say to himself when he plans on buying a Hummer?
"I'm going down to the GM dealer and gettin' me a hummer. I hear they're even on sale!"
Now, this led me to think about the sort of guy who would buy a Hummer. It reminded me of an old comedy bit by a Korean guy who grew up in Tennessee named Henry Cho. Henry had a story in his stand-up comedy routine where he talked about his friend, JB, a real country hick, who might be the type of guy who'd buy a Hummer.

(You know, big truck, little tool. Bigger truck, really little tool. You get the picture.)

Now, JB was his name, but EVERYBODY asked him what it stood for. By the time he was an adult, the question really bugged him. So you can imagine how he reacted.

One day, JB had to renew his driver's license. On the form, it asked for his first and last name. In the first name field he wrote the following:

J only B only

When his official driver's license arrived in the mail, it had as his first name:

Jonly Bonly (pronounced in Henry's southern accent, "Jonely Bonely").

That one kills me. So I laughed hysterically in my car, all by my lonesome, for 5 minutes!

That's how my mind works. It's weird, I know. It jumps from one thing to the next to the next. Next thing you know, I'm laughing like a little school girl!

American Idol's "Oliver" Moment

I don't watch American Idol. I think it's stupid. But when I saw this headline on Yahoo's TV listings, I had to laugh and share the moment with you.

Remember the Brady Bunch? When it began to go downhill, they brought in a new kid named Oliver. From that moment on, television had been changed forever.

Soon thereafter, every time a show started its downward slide, they brought in their own Oliver. Diff'rent Strokes did it with the silly little white boy. Happy Days did it with Leather...

The list really is endless. But you don't have time for that and I don't have the energy to do the research. Suffice it to say, all crappy TV shows do it.

Here's the latest: American Idol is bringing on an extra "judge." As if they need another Paula Abdul drunk-as-I-wanna-be!

Hah! That's funny shit, Reggie!

And Simon, can't you find a looser-fitting shirt? It's not as if you're Mr Olympia or anything. You're an arrogant Englishman who happens to have somewhat straight teeth. Show them off once in a while, would you?

Geezer Forgets to Vote for Fellow Geezer, Rickey Henderson

This is great! Rickey Henderson should have been a unanimous Hall of Famer on his first try. The dude was a stud (still is, by his own admission)!

Read the follow-ups in the story, though. They're comical as hell!

Porn Industry Insiders Seeking Government Bailout

You knew it would happen: Everybody and their brother would soon ask Congress for a handout. Hell, "Everybody else is doing it."

So Larry Flynt and Joe Francis (Girls Gone Wild) are going to Washington DC to ask for some dough because porn isn't selling like it was in the good old days of a strong economy and sex drive.

I wonder if big pharma is next, what with no porn, there's no need for Viagra and Cialis.

What's next? Trojan? Charmin (you just don't poop as much when you eat less)?

Obama and Bush to Meet at White House

How awkward it must be to have lunch with the guy you publicly derided for the past few years! Obama is meeting outgoing President Bush for lunch today. It's expected they'll talk about the Middle East and the sagging economy, two of Bush's -- um -- weaker points (there are a lot, all it tight competition. I could name them, but I don't have enough web space or time).

And it must feel doubly bad to be the guy who was derided.

Danica Patrick is a Speeder! That's News?

I always wondered if car racers got enough speed on the track. Did they drive like an old man on the public roads?

Not this chick. She speeds everywhere. Too bad she doesn't spend more time winning!
