Go Cardinals!

I know this picture isn't anything new, but still.

Purportedly, this is this guy's view on your average immigrant coming to the U.S.

Do You Know This Woman?

While driving from a Chamber of Commerce event, I figured I'd stop and look for the home of someone I am needing to visit in the near future. I had an address, so I drove to the neighborhood and started looking at house numbers. Once I spotted it, I made the block to double-check my work.

Well, this woman was walking her dog down the very same street, saw me double-back and proceeded to yell "FAGGOT!" as I drove by. So, of course I stop, roll down my window, give her the universal gesture for "what the hell?!" and ask her not to yell expletives when I drive by. I used those words exactly!

Nevertheless, she proceeds to tell me that there are no prostitutes in that neighborhood, and that I need a new haircut.

So, I told her, that because she welcomed me to the neighborhood so gracefully, that I would take her picture and post it it on my blog.

Here, for your viewing enjoyment, is an insane woman showing me her arse and her other arse.

P.S. if you know this dingbat, tell her to lay off the espresso.

Cleek at it again

Well, it appears the same wackjob who went after the OTC professor for using an ill-timed joke (but then later dropped charges after he realized how idiotic the charges were) is now going after a teacher and her husband for using a ping pong paddle to swat their kid's behind, and then forcing that child to hammer nails as a punishment.

If the story is to be taken at face value, my opinion is up in the air as to whether or not is constitutes "abuse." This is a touchy subject, corporal punishment, and like abortion, I doubt you can sway people from their opinions. I don't have small children, so my opinion doesn't matter at this point.

But I have to ask: Both parents have been charged with "inflicting cruel and unusual punishment." Was it the paddle or the hammering of the nails? Since when is hammering punishment? I used to steal my dad's hammer and drive nails into anything I could get my hands on. When he found out I nailed a couple into his truck tire, I got more than just a ping pong paddle.

My doubts rest with this prosecutor and his take on the law. He seems to believe that he has his finger on the pulse of Christian County. Instead, he comes off as a member of the morality police, and his belief systems have severely clouded his judgment.

But what do I know?

Here's the article: Local Paper

Советских Социалистических Республик?

So, occasionally I peruse contests, only entering those I would actually use if I were to win. Sometimes, I enter contests that promise to fly me to some far away location where I will be given front row seats to some no-talent performer (usually a former American Idol winner) who will no doubt ruin some of my favorite classics. With these contests, I usually enter anyway, with the the plan being that if I were to win, I would simply take the flight but never show up at the venue.

Anyway, I came across this site, Lucky Contest, and got a quick history lesson. Enter it yourself, and when you get to the scroll menu, scroll down to the countries that begin with the letter "U."

I guess glasnost is still underway?!

Everybody was blog-fu fighting...

I understand blogs are a place for people to knock heads, but the venom often spit back and forth between people of differing political views is not only uncomfortable to read, it paints a picture of a group of people who are filled with nothing but hatred and spite (and a warped sense of agendized entitlement, if you ask me).

I offer, for example, the rhetoric between DocLarry and JackeM in a fairly recent post in DocLarry's blog titled "Hypocrite."

Now, don't get me wrong, I have no point of view as far as who is "right" and who is "wrong," and I haven't taken the time to peruse either journal to see just what makes these two people tick. Heck, one or the other may be a wackjob, for all I know.

Yet, it seems to me that to say "Fuck Off" to a person voicing an opinion in your journal is the blog equivalent of the sniveling kid losing in kickball, who then snatches the ball away from the other players (because it's his ball) in order to end the game.

And then there's the cheering section, encouraging the continued humilitation of the poster. Are you people so full of hatred that you get off ridiculing and berating each other? Is that how you enjoy spending your time?

These are not rhetorical questions, by the way, and this isn't a defense of anyone, either. I'm sure everyone who takes the time to make a blog is a big boy or girl.

I'm just curious as to what makes you people tick.
