Christmas And Punching John Elway In The Nuts

We’re heading into the holiday season and that makes me happy.  It’s the time of year where people don’t look at me like I’m crazy when I can walk down the street in my Christmas sweater, smelling of Gingerbread with that red & green decorative sugar in my hair.  They look at me like I’m crazy because I’m not wearing pants and usually babbling excited incoherent sentences involving the words “sugarplums” and “FrankenBerries.”  (Hey, you make Christmas treats your way, I’ll make them mine)  I’m a big Christmas fan, folks, and I won’t apologize for it.  I also won’t apologize for punching John Elway in the nuts if I ever meet him.  Still pissed about 1986...and 1987...and 1989.  Jackass.  
Back to Christmas.  
In all seriousness, this year I’m making a vow to give something every day between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Will you join me?  It doesn’t have to be something you buy, it can be a kind word, a hug, or a  simple “Dude, you have something in your teeth.”  Since I became a father I’ve learned that giving is way better than receiving around Christmas.  Will you join me?  Will you at least remove your pants in public?  I don’t want to be the only one pantsless at the Rockefeller Center Tree lighting...again.
See more of me at, or at the aforementioned tree lighting ceremony.

Hopping Around Mad In The Dander

There are relatively few things that get me hopping mad, mostly because I don’t like hopping.  Up and down, up and down, there seems little point.  I’d rather sit in a chair with a Macallan and no pants while listening to Sinatra, it brings me great joy.  That being said, I do get my dander up on occasion.  Cruelty towards the mentally challenged gets me frosty pissed, as does pseudo-intellectual arrogance, anyone intentionally upsetting my wife and daughter, and the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Other than that there’s not much that I consider dander-raising worthy.  Why am I writing about this?  Well, for six more days we have to endure idiots telling us how stupid we are for not agreeing with them politically on every minute point in the universe.  I’d like to punch them in the nuts, because - and I want everyone out there to hear this - ALL of them in DC are lying, thieving scumbags.  Cheerleading for “your side” doesn’t make you open minded, it makes you even stupider than those you profess to be stupid.  THAT level of maladjusted moron being manipulated makes me hopping mad.  Well..I’m still not hopping, because I have no pants.  Hopping might hurt...things.
See more of me at, or by hopping up and peeking through my bedroom window.

Sleepy, Hot & Sticky Is No Way To Go Through Life, Son

I’m tired.  Not Charlie Sheen tired, but pretty tired.  Long travel day yesterday (see “Flaming Buttcrack Mexico” post below) and a tiring day today as well.  It started slow due to a lack of sleep; I find it difficult to sleep in hot places. (Note to hotels in Mexico: If you don’t actually turn the air conditioning to “ON,” then it doesn’t really matter much, does it?)  So waking up dewy I decided to take my revenge.  You give me no AC, then charge for horrible wifi and rancid in-room coffee, you get back sticky sheets and towels.  That’s the deal.  Pray I do not alter it further.  For Halloween I’m going as a slutty office supply lady.
See more of me at, or at  One of them is a pay site.

Velveeta In The Buttcrack

So flaming buttcrack Mexico was everything I envisioned and more.  Although I must say that of all the places I thought I’d get nachos with Velveeta, that was not one of them.  I am not kidding, Velveeta.  At “Jerry’s Mexican & Kosher Deli” in Cleveland, I wouldn’t be surprised; heck, I’d expect it there; but in Mexico?  Bite me.  Then to finish the trip off in fashion, Aeromexico destroyed my luggage.  Ripped the handle clean off.  Gracias, bitch.  Speaking of bitches, LeBitch James started his season as Dwayne Wade’s sidekick, chauffeur, and testicle wrangler today.  When the big injury to two of them comes - and it will - we will all giggle heartily.  Some of you don’t think you will, but you will.  For Halloween I’m going as a slutty barista.
See more of me at, or on the security tapes from the flaming buttcrack Mexico airport mens room.

BMW has issued recalls for over 150,000 vehicles.  Apparently it was discovered that they in fact do NOT make your penis bigger.
The Jerry Springer Show celebrates its 20th season on the air this Wednesday.  So unlike the Mayans, we here in America can pinpoint the exact date of the end of the Earth.
An Australian man, who has been collecting his belly-button lint every night since 1984 and keeping it in several jars, is now in the Guinness Book Of World Records.  The jars apparently sit on the desolately empty side of his bed where a woman would normally sleep.  OR  Hey married girls, your husbands socks on the floor aren’t looking so bad now, are they?

Christine O’Donnell Of The East said recently that she believes prayer has helped raise her polling numbers.  I have nothing against prayer but she’s still down thirteen points.  Might want to try giving Buddha a jingle.  I mean, it can’t hurt, right?  OR If she really wanted to raise poles, she should have done a GQ photo shoot like the chicks from Glee.
The publisher of a Virginia textbook is printing revised editions to correct a passage that wrongly claims thousands of black troops fought for the Confederacy in the Civil War.  Virginia officials say they are unsure how the book, “The Life And Times Of Jimmy The Greek,” got into a classroom in the first place.  
“The Daily Show” host Jon Stewart was voted the most influential man of 2010 by readers.  Frightening as this may be, it’s even scarier when you see that 2nd most influential was Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother.  OR Of course, Stewart fell to a distant 2nd when included “boobs” as one of the poll choices.
Paul the octopus, who correctly predicted the winners of this years World Cup, has passed away.  Apparently even octopus’s are bored to death by soccer.  (Fully prepared for the blowback from my European friends on this one.)
Just over half of private small company executives expect employees to steal something of value within the next year.  So you have about a 49% chance of getting a free stapler!  OR This proves one thing: Just over half of private small company executives have been paying attention.
The city of Detroit, Oregon may change its name in an attempt to attract more tourists.  Some of the names town officials are considering are “Cash Laying Around Town, “Free Weed-Burg,” and “Orgasm-ville.”
