Technically Not Homeless

Technically Not Homeless

I spotted this unique structure the other day at an intersection downtown where panhandlers usually hang out. Apologies for the terrible photo, I took it from the car while waiting at the stoplight. It’s one of those plastic playhouses for little kids, covered with junk and held together with string. I’m not sure what those...
Soap and Candle Mad Libs

Soap and Candle Mad Libs

I’ve noticed this before, but I really noticed it this morning when I went into the bathroom to take a shower and saw this sitting next to the sink. Who comes up with the names for hand soaps and candles? Do a bunch of people get together in a conference room, then have one shout...
Jeter’s Playground

Jeter’s Playground

Given the awesome name of this place, I’m sure there’s an interesting story behind it. Can any of the Amigos enlighten me? I’m envisioning a place full of see-saws, trampolines, and dudes wearing Worley Wraps. Did anybody go in there while it was open? If so, what was it like? Why is it now closed?...
Name That Costume

Name That Costume

I stopped in at my local Party City the other day to take care of some stuff for my son’s birthday party. While there, I noticed this display near their costumes section:   Let’s see: from left to right, we’ve got Santa, Party Girl, Elf Slut, and… uh, what is the person on the right...
Booger Eating: America’s Hidden Epidemic

Booger Eating: America’s Hidden Epidemic

You’re driving in your car, and eventually find yourself at a stoplight in a busy intersection. You’re going to be waiting for a while, and half-absently glance around at your surroundings while you adjust the stereo. The car next to you on the right is fairly nice, and in the driver’s seat is a professional-looking...

10 years man?!

I just wanted to point out that this blog will be celebrating it’s 10th birthday in January of 2014. We need to find a proper way to celebrate this wonderful occasion.
They don't look homeless to me.

They don’t look homeless to me.

  Can somebody please explain why this is broadcast to everyone on the side of their RV?  Looking for handouts and pity perhaps?  
I get mad!

I get mad!

I have no clue why this popped into my head this morning.  I was in the office making coffee, and I wasn’t even MAD.  But this old little short from Sesame Street crept into my subconscious.  Thanks to the wonderful technology of Google and YouTube I was able to relive this very old childhood memory....
Phreakin!

Phreakin!

I saw this while walking my dog yesterday and it reminded me of Pepe and Eduardo. Have you guys been by this box recently?
Gluten FREE!!!

Gluten FREE!!!

OK, this gluten free thing has gone far enough. Now, I completely understand the need for a gluten free diet for those people that have Celiac Disease or a gluten allergy, (heck I can sympathize, I have a food allergy myself) but when I saw that there was “gluten free” shampoo in my bathroom this...

Do you still think I’m pretty?

I was watching football yesterday with my younger brother and we saw this ad quite a few times.  Each and every time we wanted to jam that surface tablet down the person’s throat who was responsible for this.
