Live, Love, Laugh!
Good morning my friends. I hope everyone is doing well this morning. I’ve had a pretty good week. I graduated from physical therapy on Wednesday and on Thursday, the doctor said I could go back to work on light duty. So, on Monday, I’ll be going back to work. Believe it or not, I’m really looking forward to it.
As you might have noticed from today’s header, my little dragonette and I had a little father daughter project this week and we made our own homemade soft pretzels. That was a lot of fun and the pretzels came out really well! Delicious!
Well, we’re going to jump right into today’s issue. So…
Gotta love this. Pure throwback to Saturday Night Live. Father Guido Sarducci explains the meaning of life. Vita est lavorum:
Finding out that most nuns are reincarnated mob hit men is not really THAT surprising.
We are worshipped creatures. Even this small mockup of our image is being raised high in the air for all to marvel and worship. Or something like that.
We must be careful not to offend, and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward.
Let’s ditch The Kansas City Chiefs, The Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians. If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns.
The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of the militant Blacks from the 60’s alive. Gone. Offensive to us white folk.
The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team named for the Confederacy? No! There is no room for any reference to that tragic war between the states that cost this country so many young men’s lives.
Besides, the South shall rise again!!
I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion among our football team names. Totally inappropriate to have the New Orleans Saints, Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres. The fact that there are birds on their shirts does not protect either the Arizona or the St. Louis
Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and pillaged as their way of life. We are talking the horrible Oakland Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Pirates!
Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to our children—and it is all about the children.
The Green Bay Packers and the St. Louis Rams–promote gay men. Wrong message to our children.
The San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible spending habits. Wrong message to our children.
The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity—a growing childhood epidemic. Wrong message to our children.
The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates. Wrong message to our children.
The Milwaukee Brewers—well, that goes without saying…. Wrong message to our children.
So, there you go. We need to support any legislation that comes out to rectify this travesty, because the government will likely become involved with this issue, as they should. A high priority directly behind efficiently managing our country’s health care. Amen.
This one is called, “More NFL Bad Lip Reading.” It is funny as hell. I hope you enjoy.
Artificial Intelligence is no match for
This one is from our dear friend Kim Komando. Here, in her words:
If this fun password guesser can figure out your login info, it’s time for a new password! Play the fun but sobering password guessing game
Ain’t that the truth!!!
Well guys, with the Super Bowl on TV tomorrow, you may find this video VERY interesting…”10 Super Bowl Facts That Will Change The Way You Watch The Game.”
And we have to have the commercials…but why was the uncensored version of this one cut from the line up?
Why was this “uncensored” ad rejected from the Super Bowl? Not because of Scarlett Johansson’s racy antics. Nope. The Super Bowl balked at the last line and left SodaStream basking in the free publicity of an “uncensored,” “banned” ad starring Hollywood’s sexpot-du-jour.
and since we seem to be doing another video issue, how about one called Lucky People.
Which just goes to show you that it’s better to be lucky than smart.
Okay, so that last one was pretty bad. Not quite a groaner, but just plain bad!
Thanks to Ginny for this one. For you fellow aircraft fans.
X-47B: Pilots are quickly being phased out of the scheme of air power…..
Just a few months ago ( July 10, 2013 ) the Navy successfully conducted take-offs and landings from a fairly new nuclear aircraft carrier, the USS George W. Bush, with a new stealth jet called theX-47B.
What is so different about this plane is the fact that it is a ‘drone’. Yes, it is completely unmanned. Drones come in all sizes, and the X-47B is likely one of the larger ones.
What is so ironic about all of this is, the fact that the enemy cannot detect a plane like this in the first place. In the unlikely event they get lucky at shooting one down, there will be no human loss of life or captivity. As you view the flight deck crew signaling the plane, they are simply signaling the on-board cameras, who in turn are being manned by staff inside the command intelligence center ( CIC ) onboard the ship.
Also check out the short distance this plane needs for a takeoff. Impressive Indeed.
I want to take a second to thank Ginny publicly for her continued submissions to our Observations section. Thanks Ginny, you make this easier and more fun!
Things on my “To Do Before I Die – Bucket List” (okay, technically, #3 has to be done after I die, but you get the idea)
1. Buy 4 pigs. Paint numbers 1, 2, 3, & 5 on them. Release them in the mall and watch security spend the rest of the day searching for number 4.
2. Answer the phone from a wrong number or a telemarketer by whispering: “It’s done. But there’s blood everywhere.”
3. Have someone take my corpse after I’ve died, dress it in a superman costume and be thrown from a plane high over my home town.
4. Next time I go in for a urine test, hide a small bottle of apple juice in my pocket. Fill the cup with apple juice and carry it back out to the nurse. Before handing her the cup, say something along the lines of, “My goodness, look how dark my urine is. Let me go ahead and filter it one more time.” and then drink the cup down.
Okay, so what would be on YOUR list?
Okay, one more Super Bowl joke….
A man had 50 yard line tickets for the Super Bowl.
As he sat down, he noticed that the seat next to him was empty. He asked the man on the other side of the empty seat whether anyone was sitting there.
“No,” the man replied, “The seat is empty.”
“This is incredible,” said the first man. “Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the Super Bowl, the biggest sporting event in the world and not use it?”
The second man replied, “Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away. This will be the first Super bowl we haven’t been together since we got married in 1967.”
“Oh, I’m sorry to hear that. That’s terrible. But couldn’t you find someone else — a friend or relative, or even a neighbor to take the seat?”
The man shook his head. “No, they’re all at the funeral.”
