Lately I’ve been having trouble writing these blog openings. This time of year can send me into a funk, and not the good kind where George Clinton shows up and everyone is good looking and can dance and doesn’t seem to notice that Jeremy Piven is a 35 year old college student. (That’s a PCU reference. Top that, John Stewart) No, I mean the kind of funk that stems from being the only one left who wants to bake goodies at frantic Christmas levels. This funk doesn’t affect the jokes themselves, because the news rolls on. Celebrities and politicians are year-round idiots, and it’s simply a matter of working their name into a sentence with the word “booger.” No, it’s only this opening part that’s troublesome, because the end of the holidays makes me a little sad. Now, my usual solution to any emotional problem is to remove my pants in a public setting, but we spent too much on Christmas this year and I can’t afford the bail. After the horror of yesterdays travel, I could try to make myself feel better by writing “Spirit Airlines is a giant, flaming ball of lizard turds and I hope they all catch diphtheria and dropsy” on a blackboard 500 times, but I doubt that would work. I’m not sure what to do to get out of this funk, but if you have a suggestion email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org along with a nude photo. That’s just the dog in me, baby. Bow wow wow yippee oh yippee yay.
