It always amuses me when I get insulting spam comments. Like this one from something Coupons: The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. [...]
The IRS says that making a Star Trek parody “training video” was “a mistake.” The only thing about it that I see as a “mistake” is that they spent $60,000 on it. Well, on that and another short parody video. How can you spend that much money making a six minute video? There are thousands [...]
There is a cute series of public service announcements by the Tulsa Health Department. This one is my favorite.
Oh, this post could get me into trouble. First of all, I honestly don’t care what anyone is into or what their orientation happens to be. Not my business. Diversity is delightful. Really. It can be so amusing sometimes. But that’s just it. I’m not supposed to be amused. It’s disrespectful. And if I find [...]
I hate when I have to sign something. My signature never looks the same twice so I’m always a little worried that someone is going to have a problem with it. Like, “We can’t accept this. This isn’t really your signature.” Using signatures seems rather primitive but I guess there’s no secure and practical alternative [...]
When you type “cats” into the search box on Youtube one of the suggestions that appears is “cats can be jerks”. Well… that wasn’t what I was looking for but I decided to have a look and see what comes up. These cats are not jerks. Cats are not capable of being jerks in the [...]
Best. Insurance commercial. Ever. Someone has been watching Mythbusters.
I’m going to mention brand names but this is NOT an advertisement or review. Roman Meal was the only brand of bread my grandmother would buy. My mother bought white bread because that’s what my dad liked so when I was little I thought “dark bread” was weird and scary and I refused to try [...]

Six Terrifying Beach Sculptures – Not exactly what I would call terrifying but mostly not lovely to look at. The whole idea of beach sculptures makes me sad. Natural beaches are perfect and do not need any adornment. The only sculpture I want to see on a beach is the occasional sand sculpture that will [...]
Dustbury pointed the way to Rhymes With Orange, an excellent web comic that I had not seen before. Of course, the name of the comic brought back memories from my childhood. Kid’s today are so culturally deprived.
This is mean and I’m a bad person for laughing at it. Hmmm… I think I do have a scarf somewhere… Actually, the comments at YouTube suggest using this trick when you need to immobilize your cat, such as when you need to trim his claws. That’s a good idea if it works. I think [...]
Well, I guess a new season of The Biggest Loser has started? I don’t watch it but I can’t avoid the commercials. But they no longer annoy me as much as they used to. Whenever one comes on I just picture Jillian Michaels in a cage match with Holley Mangold. My thanks to Number Two [...]
This was in comments this morning: I am very satisfied to peer your article. Thanks a lot and i am looking ahead to touch you. Will you kindly drop me a mail? Okay, so I’m easily entertained.
What do you think of toe shoes? Both of my sons have them now. I don’t think I would like having my toes separated like that. Other than that, though, they look comfortable – lightweight and flexible. So far only some athletic shoes have the separated toes but can you imagine fashion toe shoes? Maybe [...]
OMG! I was looking for more of this (Yay! I think I found the whole thing!) and also found this: I remember that! I remember watching that scene but I had forgotten all about it.
As I said in the comments to yesterday’s post, I was slightly bummed out that hardly anyone seemed very excited about Felix Baumgartner’s historic skydive from space, but apparently some people were perhaps a bit too excited.
I deleted a spam comment this morning that began with the words, “Huarache Free 2012″. Well… okay. I don’t have anything against huaraches. I don’t own any though so going “huarache free” won’t be a problem for me. On the other hand, it’s a little late in the year for huaraches or else I might [...]
I’m sure this little scene will be familiar to everyone who uses a computer. Contains profanity. (But, given the subject, you probably knew that, right?)
Yep. This is pretty close. XKCD Reading the reviews is more helpful though. Usually on any product with ten or more reviews at least one of the bad reviews will be by someone who obviously misunderstood the purpose of the product or didn’t read the description. A few weeks ago I bought a pot/pitcher sized [...]
What exactly is a hot mess? How does it differ from a cold mess or a plain old room temperature mess? If I cooked something that turned out awful I could see how that might be termed “a hot mess” but that’s not how this phrase is normally used. What makes a pro tip a [...]
Saturday I knew it was going to rain. The sky was filled with dark clouds and when I checked the weather the radar showed lots of yellow, orange and red jagged splotches moving from northwest to southeast. They were coming right at us! I was so excited. I thought they were maybe an hour or [...]
A little over a week ago I started seeing advertisements, on whatever cable/satellite channel we were watching, for standup comedian W. Kamau Bell. Well, we had never heard of Bell before but the bits they were playing in the commercial looked funny so we set the machine to record his show. We watched it yesterday. [...]
