Golden Goose Usurped by Hen

As the price of eggs kept rising (and the price of gold went down), the Goose that Laid the Golden Egg found herself replaced by the hen that laid regular eggs...

Привет Россияне

Привет Россияне! Я рад, что вам нравится мой блог! Иногда это серьезно, но в основном это для веселья!!! Спасибо за посещение!

Hit it!

It’s 387 minutes until quittin’ time, I’ve got a full cup of tea, half a bag of crackers, it’s Friday... and I just insulted the new version of our company software to the bosses.

Hit it!

It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses.

Donald Trump and Rod Blagojevich Have the Same Barber

Sources within the world of hair care have revealed that both Donald Trump and Rod Blagojevich go to the same barber; one Mongo Froman. Apparently Froman has been doing the hair styling of both men for decades.

When asked about his hair stylist, Trump said stupid and nasty things about my hair, my war record, and my presidential run.

When asked the same question, Blagojevich said he was willing to sell me the opportunity to be the next one to escape.


Mongo Froman

That was when I tracked down Mongo Froman, who said that he normally does not give out the names of his clients; but since I already knew them he said,
"Yes, I admit it and isn't their hair amazing?"
"Yes," I replied truthfully. "It is quite amazing..."

White Boy Ave.

I'm laughing because this is funny! If it were any other word besides "white," however, I would be outraged by the blatant racism!

Helping Out

We had fun at the Dragon Festival on Saturday. Our son wanted to play in the blow up, bouncy things—which cost $5 for 15 minutes. I believe he should have actually gotten paid to do it—because not only did he appear in the entrance numerous times to throw out grass he picked up inside, but in this picture you can see him climbing up the slide (the wrong direction) to try to comfort a younger child who was crying because she was scared to go down.

What Celebrity?

The fact that anyone would care about the Kardashians or Bristol Palin being pregnant again or any of these other people who got "famous" by being related to someone else and then by acting like an idiot is a very negative footnote on our culture. There are few things that I could care about less than these people that the "news" seems to keep trying to tell me about.

Cosby Defense Cites Ambiguity

Amidst the revelation that Bill Cosby drugged women in order to have sex with them, Cosby's defense team cited "ambiguity" in his admissions. Apparently the actual testimony by Mr. Cosby sounded much like this.

More Work Needed on Racial Arrest Disparity

After it was revealed that a larger than normal percentage of African-Americans were being arrested and incarcerated in the United States, efforts were made to rectify this issue. A push to increase the number of Caucasians arrested included trying to recruit more whites into criminal activity. Noting that this initiative was largely ineffectual, new efforts are now being discussed which would include trying to sway people of color away from criminal activities. Hopefully this will have a more positive outcome.

Your Bald "Joke" Not Appreciated

So you noticed I'm bald and now you feel the need to make a derogatory remark at my expense. You may not know this, but most bald men are pretty much OK with being bald. In fact, I have shaved my head and embraced the whole thing. What gets old though, is when people think they need to make disparaging remarks about it. Apparently, in our "politically correct" society, even though I would be shamed if I called you ugly, or fat, or stupid, you think it is all right to make fun of my hair (or someone who is short). Why are some things "out-of-line," while others are "fair game?" Just to set the record straight, if you make cracks about me being bald I won't think it is funny or that you are great. I will think you are an idiot with no manners. So be my guest and take your best shot; just don't act surprised if I don't seem like I enjoy it. And finally, "Hey baldy," is not an appropriate way of greeting someone. Try, "hello," you dumb-ass.

CuTRis Announces that He is Straight

CuTRis Announces that He is Straight
UnAssociated Press
July 1, 2015

In a bold move today, CuTRis came out of the front door of his house and in front of what can only be described as a crap-load of reporters, he announced that he is straight. He said that in fact, he has always been a heterosexual.
"There is nothing wrong with me,"
said CuTRis vehemently. "I just prefer the opposite sex. Hopefully, people will still treat me like any other person—even though it is now so trendy and politically correct to be gay. As hard as it was for me to admit that I am 100% straight, I can only imagine how difficult it is, for all of the teenagers who have to break the news to their parents—that they, too, are straight. Please be kind people. We have come so far!"
Then CuTRis went back through the front door and reporters were left in a stunned silence.
