We’re taking a break

1 Sep

office-closed-sizedWe’re on an extended break while we recharge our batteries.

3,500 posts is a lot and some time off is needed.
This stuff is starting to all sound the same.

We’ve done this a couple of times before and it’s necessary to keep one’s sanity.

In the meantime, we invite you to visit Grumpy Seniors for a different and humorous look at getting old.

Get your weiners here

21 Aug

carlos-danger-weiners-sizedAnthony Weiner is winning in the world of hot dog marketing.

The  wonderful combination of Anthony Weiner’s Twitter name and his sexting were just too good to pass up.

Coming to your supermarket freezer (maybe) some day – the hot dog called Carlos Danger Weiners.

Right now you can order them through their website.

In case you’ve been in a cave for the last couple of months, Carlos Danger was the Twitter handle for former Congressman Anthony Weiner.

Carlos was all over the place having sexual chats with women.

So, Weiner is now running for New York City mayor and all this stuff is coming out.

The price of the hot dogs range from roughly $80 for the “Super Tailgater Pack” (40 pounds of Carlos Danger), to $4 for a four-pack.

Expensive?

Yeah, but the dogs are about twice the size of  regular hot dogs.

Weiner should be proud.

Soundbites

21 Aug

Soundbites02-sized“You might be surprised to hear this, but I actually like it better this way.”
– Anthony Weiner on the very few reporters still covering his New York City mayoral race.

“This is like going from crazy to crazier. Threatening to shut down the government is like playing with fire. Threatening to default on our debt obligations is the economic equivalent of playing with nuclear weapons. For the cooler heads in the GOP, this has to be raising all sorts of alarm bells.”
– Democrat Representative Chris Van Hollen on using the debt limit to force the defunding of Obamacare.

“The Democratic Party, it’s not dead like some people think it is.”
– Democrat Senator Mark Pryor.

“As a woman, initially I was interested in Quinn. It became clear to me that, you know as a woman, you can’t just vote your vagina.”
– Actress Susan Sarandon endorsing Bill de Blasio over Christine Quinn in the New York mayoral race.

“There’s room for people who believe in bigger government in our party.”
– Republican Senator Rand Paul taking a swipe at New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

“It simply means I was invited to a wingding, and I think anything in Iowa makes a wingding out of a wingding, and that is all it is.”
– Democrat Senator Amy Klobuchar saying no one should assume she’s interested in running for president because of a trip to Iowa.

Morning distraction

21 Aug

We bet you’ve never seen this before.

Somewhere in Africa fruit hits the ground.
It starts to rot – and ferment.

All the animals discover it.

It’s Animal House all over again.

Ending the night on a downer

19 Aug

Government-Surveillance-sizedA discussion around a restaurant table Saturday night.

Actually, less of a discussion and more a string of questions bounced about between some politically and militarily wired friends having an off-the-record dinner.

It started with “It’s time to ask ourselves some questions.”

We are “free citizens in a self-governing republic.”

When was the last time you thought of that?
Have you ever thought of it?

Now think of this:

Are we really free citizens in a self-governing republic any more?

Does the government answer to the people?

Has it ever?

If the answer is no then we not a republic.

Morning distraction

“Let’s do something different for our wedding.”

“What’s that”?”

“Let’s have Uncles Festus put a camera on his quadcopter and take some neat video.”

“Okay. What could go wrong?”

Weekend extra

17 Aug

Something to kill time with as you wait for that Saturday morning hangover to go away.

Vine is a website where you can upload 6-seconds of video.

It’s amazing what can be shown in 6-seconds.
