Thursday gets a pretty bad rap. It’s not as hated as Monday, not as happy as Friday, has no sexual connotations like Wednesday (Hump Day), is definitely NOT in the same class as Saturday or Sunday, which leaves it only in competition as Tuesday as having the crappiest gig of any of the seven days. And you can even make the case that Tuesday ends up with all the two-fer specials (like the radio stations playing two-for-Tuesday songs and such) which leave poor Thursday completely out in the rain! It’s really not fair, and actually quite sad.
So, rather than dwell on this sad subject any longer, wadda ya say we jump into the laughter and get this show on the road?
Yesterday Lethal asked: “I’m not sure which is worse for guys, the above scenario (getting certain male anatomical parts frozen to cold pieces of metal) or peeing on an electric fence! Impish I hear you’ve deliberately done both, any insight?” Well, Lethal. They both have their advantages and disadvantages. In both cases, it is a unique and often humorous way of meeting new people and when handled correctly can either lead to serious sympathy/healing sex or a very electrifying afternoon for the ladies.
On the other hand, marks, scars, freezer burn or even real burns are not uncommon. So, you take the good with the bad.
Here’s a good video from MakeUseOf.com. The only problem I have with it, is that they titled the video: People Should Stop Taking the Internet So Seriously when clearly, the intent of the video was to show that we should take more care with what we say and do on line. But, it is a good video none the less and should be shared.
There is a new tattoo going around, especially in Europe, which women are getting to protect themselves from Muslim Men. It’s actually a good idea:
Here’s a quick look behind the scenes at Dragon and Leprechaun Laff Industries. A short editorial conversation between the two named partners discussing content. Lethal is telling Impish about a news article he read…
S. Phibber McGee: WEST — Retired Col. Arthur “Kit” Murray, a U.S. Air Force test pilot who saw at the curvature of the earth when he set an altitude record at 90,440 feet in 1954 in the Bell X-1A rocket plane, has died in Texas. He was 92.
S. Phibber McGee: shit you get higher than that on a midair flatulence incident don’t you?
impishdragon: yeah, pretty much. I’ve hit 100k
S. Phibber McGee: and that was without lighting it right?
impishdragon: yeah, one of those monsters, the last time I lighted one I ended up on the friggin’ moon
S. Phibber McGee: Well THAT explains the new crater they found on the dark side
impishdragon: Yup, that was me. Damn near missed and ended up out past Mars.
S. Phibber McGee: You could have dropped in on cousin Marvin!
impishdragon: He’s stopped talking to me since I took his eludium three hundred space modulator or whatever the hell it was. I thought it was a pork chop
S. Phibber McGee: HE’s my arms dealing cousin we make him keep his office on Mars cause he kept having accidents and gold would get blown up
impishdragon: Must be a different Marvin…the one I know is a Martian, not a leprechaun
S. Phibber McGee: so he got mad and dropped the “O’ ” from his name
O’Marvin the Martian Leprechaun
S. Phibber McGee: well you know 500 years on Mars WILL change you a bit…then there was all those nasty legal proceedings where he wanted the name change and out of the family
impishdragon: Ahhh, nice ring to it
S. Phibber McGee: he changed it to Marvin Marshian
impishdragon: Does he wear a fuller brush on his helmet?
S. Phibber McGee: primarily cause Marv Mars was making too many faries giggle hysterically
yeah I sent him that as a gag gift after the first 150 years
impishdragon: Maybe it is the same guy
S. Phibber McGee: that’s a Fuller Brush Truck washing brush I had custom dyed for this helmet
impishdragon: Fuller Brush Truck Washing Brush?
S. Phibber McGee: I told him it was for helping to wash the underside of his spaceship
he just had to walk around under there instead of trying to erect a ladder in that gravity
impishdragon: Little guy, right? Can walk right under the space ship and shine it with his helmet?
S. Phibber McGee: yup
impishdragon: Yeah, that’s him. He’s pissed at me
I ate his Plutonium Blaster thingy
S. Phibber McGee: 50 years later I sent him another one for polishing the under side. That led to the Iludium Q-38 Spacer Modulator development for blowing up the earth to get back at me
impishdragon: Yeah, that was it. He used to say that a lot.
I guess that’s why the Earth wasn’t blown up.
And Bugs thinks he took all the glory.
Funny, funny world …
So, that’s your cousin, huh?
S. Phibber McGee: In retort for the whole blow up the earth issue I stopped being his IT guy so thats why he has all those cpmputer issues
impishdragon: Ahhhh! Well that explains the rest of his piss-offed-ness.
S. Phibber McGee: yup
impishdragon: He couldn’t get HBO
S. Phibber McGee: plus I amde sure all he gets for TV waves captured is reruns of I Love Lucy & The Cosby Show
impishdragon: Okay, well all this talk of pork chops has got me hungry… and that Lucy…..yuck, yuck, yuck…. she sure is something.
I’ll talk to you later on.
S. Phibber McGee: Don’t forget Bill and his Jello Pudding!
impishdragon: Oh yeah! Thanks!
A Golden Oldie Video….is that even possible?
I love this guy! He’s the BEST!
Today’s Last Word is an excellent essay called “Entitlement”.
What the hell is wrong here?
Remember, not only did you contribute to Social Security but your employer did too. It totaled 13.3% of your income before taxes.
If you averaged only 30K over your working life, that’s close to $220,500. If you calculate the future value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer’s contribution) at a simple 5% (less than what the govt. pays on the money that it borrows), after 49 years of working (me) you’d have $892,919.98. If you took out only 3% per year, you receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years, and that’s with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit!
If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you’d have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month. The folks in Washington have pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madoff ever had.
Entitlement my ass , I paid cash for my social security insurance!!!! Just because they borrowed the money , doesn’t make my benefits some kind of charity or handout !! Congressional benefits , aka. free health care , outrageous retirement packages , 67 paid holidays , three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days , now that’s welfare , and they have the nerve to call my retirement entitlements !!!!!!
Emergency Rooms for their general health care at just one hospital the cost to tax payers totaled over 25 million a year!!!
Someone please tell me what the HELL’s wrong with all the people that run this country!!!!!!
We’re “broke” & can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless
etc.,??? In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile , and Turkey.
And now Pakistan home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!! Our retired seniors living on a ‘fixed income’ receive no aid nor do they get any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour Hundreds of Billions of $$$$$$’s and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries!
They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives and now when its time for us to collect, the government is running out of money. Why did the government borrow from it in the first place?
We have hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans.
AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going
to bed hungry, elderly going without ‘needed’ meds, and mentally ill without treatment
They have a ‘Benefit’ for the people of Haiti on 12 TV stations, ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies.
Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave ‘US’ the same support they give to other countries.
YEAH, OK, SO WHEN DO WE GET PISSED AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT?????
“There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.” –James Madison, speech at the Virginia Ratifying Convention, 1788
