Citing an influx of cars with Wisconsin license plates driving in the St. Paul area, CuTRis told reporters this morning that he is tired of seeing Green Bay Packers bumper stickers while driving on Minnesota highways.

"We're going to build a wall!" said CuTRis, "And Wisconsin is going to pay for it!"

Speaking on behalf of Wisconsin, Aaron Rodgers said that the idea of a wall between the two states is an insult and Wisconsin will never pay for it. When asked about the response, CuTRis merely shrugged and said, "Of course they will!"

"Old Man Song"

When I had the song, "Space Lord," by Monster Magnet in my head, my 9-year-old niece said it sounded "like an 'old man' song."

If that's true, thank God I'm an old man.

At the time of this posting, this version of this song has 7,969,583 views on YouTube. There must be a lot of old men who agree with me.

The Lumberjack

My son asked me who was on the shirt I was wearing. I told him it was the Tasmanian Devil dressed as a lumberjack. Then I asked him if he knew what lumberjacks do? He said 'no,' so I told him they cut down trees!

"What else do they do?" he asked.
"They eat their lunch," I replied.
"What else?" he asked again.
"He cuts down trees, he eats his lunch, he goes to the lavatory," I answered...

Just one day until the Inauguration of Donald Trump as 45th President of the United States, Americans have also chosen their favorite color of crayon! "Poop Color" has won the electoral vote; although it appears that perhaps "Sky Blue" won the popular vote. Regardless, Poop Color has won the coveted favorite color prize!

Duracell Coppertop Batteries - Bad Quality

One 9-volt in smoke detector "popped" and the detector started "chirping." Two AAA in the programmable thermostat failed the first night and I woke up at 4:00 AM to a house that was 59 degrees F. Both times the batteries were new and had dates well into the future (the AAA's were 2025). There is apparently no quality control. They are made in China.
