I Wouldn’t Buy That For A Dollar

21st December 2011 by admin No Comments

I saw this while doing some Christmas shopping, and had to take a picture of it. This is a New Choice Pregnancy Test from the Dollar Tree store, costing a grand total of one dollar. Offhand, what do you think the failure rate of a dollar’s worth of pregnancy test is? I’m guessing you could […]

The holiday season makes Walmart more fun, like a horror movie in 3D.

Nutcracked

I’m a buffoon. A cretin. I freely admit it. I try to have a modicum of culture, but there are somethings that just don’t register with me. I just don’t get the ballet. I went to a junior college production of “The Nutcracker” this weekend. I try and get all of my culture in small […]

General Holiday Well Wishes And Whatnot

15th December 2011 by admin No Comments

It seems that these days some people get upset when you say “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas.” Because, you know, that’s what Jesus would have done. He loved people getting pissy on his birthday. I’ll admit it. I usually say “Happy Holidays” for a variety of reasons, and please note none of them is […]

Derek Jeter: International Man Of Signatures

According to a New York Post article, Yankees shortstop and all-around famous person Derek Jeter has broken up with similarly famous person Minka Kelly, and is picking himself up by having sex with normal, non-famous people again. However, his celebrity status has caused a bit of a snag in the separation. The Post is reporting […]

Rick Springfield, Live At The Glass Cactus

13th December 2011 by admin No Comments

I went to see Rick Springfield in concert this weekend. And no, I didn’t travel by flux-capacitor-powered DeLorean. To begin with, if you’re a fan of forty-year old boobies, this was the place for you. Luckily, I am, and there were many many of them on display at the Glass Cactus. Rick Springfield is like […]

Radio Radio

12th December 2011 by admin No Comments

I hate radio commercials that say “Don’t forget to…” “Don’t forget to ask for the weekly special! Don’t forget to tell ’em Big Dave sent you! Don’t forget our sale ends at midnight!” Like I need somebody else putting stuff on my plate. I need somebody else filling out my to-do list. Tell ’em Big […]

Walmart Grammar

Warning: This sign is written in fluent Walmart. — Reid Kerr is speechless sometimes, which is still slightly better than this sign. Bookmark on Delicious Digg this post Recommend on Facebook share via Reddit Share with Stumblers Tweet about it Subscribe to the comments on this post

Down For The Sleigh Ride

7th December 2011 by admin No Comments

At great personal expense and physical danger, I’ve finished most of my Christmas shopping. Because of work and other things, Christmas with my family will be taking place this weekend. There’s no better way to ramp up the blind holiday panic than by setting an early deadline, so today, we spent about nineteen hours and […]

Sons Of Anarchy: LaMonica Garrett

6th December 2011 by admin No Comments

As part of my column over at Examiner.com, I got a chance to grab a couple of minutes with LaMonica Garrett. LM plays Deputy Sheriff Cane on Sons Of Anarchy, and has also been on NCIS, One Tree Hill, and most importantly to my pop culture sensibilities, was on Spike TV’s Slamball. Excerpts are up […]
