Morning campers Assistant Camper Director and Head Shenanigans Councilor Leprechaun here!
Seems the Impish one and I just cannot catch a break as of late. He worked extra long and extra hard (well relative to his NORMAL work ethic which isn’t much of one) so as to be able to catch at least SOME of both play off games yesterday. AT least that was his plan. Seems he over did it with work (as unaccustomed as he is to it) and was forced to retire and rest after managing to last long enough to see the Packers win. Well, it was either that or profound sadness and depression upon my explaining the “Cheeseheads” was only a nickname owing to the color of Greenbay’s helmets and that the players were NOT actually made of cheese and therefore a potential part of a Dragons diet.
On top of that from the limited conversation I had with him (3 lines worth) seems some VIP felt the need to have his ego masturbated and pulled a no notice “I’m-important-in-my-own-mind-so-I-need-a-tour-of-shit-I-have-no-business- or-right-to-be-getting-one-of-and-right-now” dog and pony show for which the Dragon is responsible for making happen.
Mean while here at my tree house my U-verse service basically has a 300 foot bandage on it temporary bandage on it, a wire has been run from the far opposite end of the building across the rear of the entire length, in one of my windows and nearly the entire depth of my apartment to their Gateway to make things run. After 2 different techs pointed fingers at each other Friday I had another here for five hours Saturday who has finally (an more importantly convincingly) accessed the blame for the problems on the forty year old building wiring between their box and my apartment. SIGH! NOW the property management company for the complex I live in has to get involved and get an electrician to come out and run new wiring before U-verse can come back and put things to rights. This means that because the repair ticket is not closed that every four hours I get a call AND a text message from ATT demanding I declare the repair complete OR schedule an appointment for completion. Well the repair is NOT complete and I can’t schedule the repair until I know when the new lines are being run. Apparently everyone at ATT is in subservence to their computer (anyone ever see the 60’s Science Fiction movie Colossus the Forbin Project? )
Now Lets Get to the Laughing Shall We?
I saw a fundamentalist Muslim extremist fall into the Rio Grande River this morning; he was struggling to stay afloat because of all the guns and bombs he was carrying.
Along with him was an illegal Hispanic drug cartel member who was also struggling to stay afloat because of the large backpack of drugs that was strapped to his back.
If they didn’t get help, they’d surely drown.
Being a responsible Texan and abiding by the law to help those in distress, I informed the El Paso County Sheriff ‘s Office and Homeland Security.
It is now 4pm, both have drowned, and neither authority has responded.
I’m starting to think I wasted two stamps….
A Very unusual herd of deer…
An Iroquois legend proves to be true. A very unusual herd of deer…whitetails…yes, but more. Wisconsin near border with Michigan’s U. P.
Turn up the sound and enjoy!
Seems everyone wants in on Zack’s Groaners. Today comes from Bob:
Two Mexican detectives were investigating the murder of Juan Gonzalez.
How was he killed?” asked one detective.
With a golf gun,” the other detective replied.
A golf gun?!
What is a golf gun?” ”
I don’t know. But it sure made a hole in Juan.”
This morning a coalition of Muslim leaders warned the United States that if military action against Muslim countries continues, they intend to cut off America’s supply of 7-11 and Motel 6 managers. If this action does not yield sufficient results, cab drivers will be next, followed by Dell, ATT and AOL customer service reps. Finally, if all else fails, they have threatened not to send us any more Presidents either. It’s gonna get ugly, people.
Gratuitous Dragon Photo
Recently Impish told me he was tired of my riding his ass all the time and I had better find something else or another dragon to ride. So just to annoy him, I did both! Here it is, it even kind of looks a a little like him!:
I will say that the exhaust that comes out of THIS dragon is a lot easier to tolerate than the exhaust that comes out of Impish!
Oddest Stories of 2010 Part 9
The Flight Attendant who quit his job during a flight using the emergency slide.
In August 2010, Steven Slater, a flight attendant of JetBlue airlines, got into an argument with a passenger during boarding at a Pittsburgh airport. He finally had enough of his job, quit, and opened the emergency slide on the plane in order to leave. He grabbed the intercom and said: “To the passenger who called me a mother ——, —- you. “I’ve been in the business 28 years. I’ve had it. That’s it.” Mr. Slater then activated the emergency exit and slid down the inflatable slide on to the tarmac. He then boarded a train to the terminal, stripping off his tie and discarding it to the astonishment of bemused onlookers. Slater was later arrested and charged with reckless endangerment and criminal mischief. (Link | Via)

Continuing with my less is more commentaries via photo or cartoon that seem to have been doing so well as of late here’s another that needs no additional commentary after it.
