Wow fast week, Wednesday already! Week just got started and its half over. I could get used to this and it just goes to show my ten hour per day four day work week isn’t such a bad concept.
I pretty much talked myself out making Monday’s Memorial day issue so we’re going to keep this short. Thank You to all those who posted or privately sent appreciative comments and to the two former Dragon groupies who offered to bear my children…I’ll see you next weekend in ‘Vegas!
Well that’s about it except to say that someone expressed the opinion that we had been bashing Obama pretty severely lately to which I have to plead guilty. I’d also hasten to point out that if once they were down Obamaites STAYED down, we could have gotten away with half the bashing I did lately. ANYWAY we’re peeing on the parade new Looney Tunes Group today…Global Warming Gore Goons so look for that in today’s Last Word.
NOW LET’S MAKE WITH THE LAUGHTER!
A major electronics company, Siemens, is introducing a
tiny necklace cell phone for women.
Have you seen this thing? It’s on a chain – you wear
it around your neck – it hangs down right here to a
The only problem women have with it; when it rings,
every guy in the room yells, “I’ll get it.”
For several years, ImpishDragon had been having an affair with an Italian woman.
One night, she confided to him that she pregnant.
Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage, Impish offered to pay her a large sum of money if she’d go back to Italy and secretly have the child. Also, if she stayed in Italy to raise the child, he would provide child support until the child turned 18.
She agreed, but asked how he would know when the baby was born.
To keep it discrete, he told her to simply mail him a postcard, and write ‘Spaghetti’ on the back when the child was born. He would then arrange for the Child Support Payments to begin.
One day, about 8 months later, he came home to a confused Mrs. Dragon. “Honey,”she said, ‘You received a very strange postcard today. ”Oh, just give it to me and I’ll explain it later,’ he said. The wife obeyed and watched as Impish read the card, turn white, and faint.
On the card was written:
Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti,Spaghetti,Spaghetti..
Three with meatballs, two without.
Send extra sauce.
Impish Dragon was asleep in his chair one afternoon when he was awoken by the sound of the doorbell, he shuffled to the door; and when he opened it, he saw a beautiful young woman standing there.
“Oh, dear!” she said. “I’m at the wrong house.”
“Sweetheart, you’re at the right house,” the old Dragon assured her, “but you’re thirty years too late!”
Impish and Mrs. Dragon were having a terrible disagreement over a patio
they wanted for their back yard. Mrs. Dragon had rather grand ideas,
while Impish wanted costs kept to a minimum. Mrs. Dragon of course won out,
and the construction bill climbed higher and higher.
I dropped by one day when the patio was nearing completion, and
was surprised to find Impish smiling from ear to ear as the
workmen smoothed over the surface. I remarked how nice it was to
see a grin replace the frown he had been wearing lately.
“You see where they’re smoothing that cement?” he replied.
“I just threw all my wife’s credit cards in there.”
It’s my understanding that he’s buried under the water feature, a last minute addition to the patio.
Mrs. Dragon recently lost her husband Impish. She had him cremated and brought his ashes home. (The fire lasted five days and took the efforts of firefighters from 5 towns to finally bring under control and contain)
Picking up the four urns that he was in, she poured him out on the patio table.
Then, while tracing her fingers in the ashes, she started talking to him.
“You know that dishwasher you promised me? I bought it with the insurance money!”
She paused for a minute tracing her fingers in the ashes then said,
“Remember that car you promised me? Well, I also bought it with the insurance money!”
Again, she paused for a few minutes and while tracing her fingers in the ashes she said,
“Remember that diamond ring you promised me? Bought it too, with the insurance money!”
Finally, still tracing her fingers in the ashes, She said, “Remember that blow job I promised you?”(She began pulling the starting cord of an industrial leaf blower)
“Here it comes.”
A fellow in a bar notices a woman, always alone, come in on a fairly regular basis. After the second week, he made his move.
“No thank you.” she said politely. “This may sound rather odd in this day and age, but I’m keeping myself pure until I meet the man I love.”
“That must be rather difficult.” the man replied.
“Oh, I don’t mind too much.” she said. “But, it has my husband pretty upset.”
“George is so forgetful,” the sales manager complained to his secretary. “It’s a wonder he can sell anything. I asked him to pick me up some sandwiches on his way back from lunch, and I’m not sure he’ll even remember to come back.”
Just then, the door flew open and in bounced George. “You’ll never guess what happened!” he shouted. “While I was at lunch, I met old man Brown, who hasn’t bought anything from us for five years. Well, we got to talking and he gave me this half-million dollar order!”
“See,” sighed the sales manager to his secretary, “I told you he’d forget the sandwiches.”
We get comments all the time from the Anally Retentive Nitpickers Guild usually regarding our spelling or grammar mistakes and our general overall lack of proof reading skills. Well listen up (or clean off your glasses or what ever the hell someone who needs to pay closer attention to a blog needs to do) because apparently the problem extends all the way up to the big boys as well!
Proofreading is a Dying Art these days!

This one I caught in the SGV Tribune the other day and called the Editorial Room and asked who wrote this. It took two or three readings before the editor realized that what he was reading was impossible!!! They put in a correction the next day.
I just couldn’t help but send this along. Too funny.

Typhoon Rips Through Cemetery; Hundreds Dead
Did I read that right?
Yes todays issue is a wee on the short side. I should be caught up and back up to speed with any luck on Friday.
Today’s Last Word comes courtesy of K-Squared. Now granted I have not had the time to do more than a cursory check on the facts in it but I did not see any glaring inconsistencies when I did. I would also point out that I a still of the opinion that Recycling and reverting to some Greener Consumer practices is a good idea. What I’m NOT sold on is all this carbon footprint/global warming crap. The following is exactly why.
Okay, here’s the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland, since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet – all of you.
Of course you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress – it’s that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow, and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans, and all animal life.
I know, it’s very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of: driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kid’s “The Green Revolution” science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad, nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50 cents light bulbs with $10.00 light bulbs…well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days.
The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth’s atmosphere in just four days – yes – FOUR DAYS ONLY by that volcano in Iceland, has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud any one time – EVERY DAY.
I don’t really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the volcano Mt Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in its entire YEARS on earth. Yes folks, Mt Pinatubo was active for over one year – think about it.
Of course I shouldn’t spoil this touchy-feely tree-hugging moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keep happening, despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.
And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud but the fact of the matter is that the brush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year.
Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping new carbon tax on you on the basis of the bogus “human-caused” climate change scenario.
Hey, isn’t it interesting how they don’t mention “Global Warming” any more, but just “Climate Change” – you know why? It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past century and these global warming bull artists got caught with their pants down.
And just keep in mind that you might yet have an Emissions Trading Scheme – that whopping new tax – imposed on you, that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer. It won’t stop any volcanoes from erupting, that’s for sure.
But hey, relax, give the world a hug and have a nice day!
PS: I wonder if Iceland is buying carbon offsets?
Apparently the jury is still out as to if all this is true or to what extent. My point is that our efforts are a drop in the bucket next to Mother nature and that due to these recent eruptions the global mean temp has actually cooled off 1.3 degrees over the last 2 years.
Man made global warming my tattooed bloody arse!
