See The U.S.A. From Inside Your Chevrolet…

There was an ad in today’s Los Angeles Times for Chevrolet’s annual “Chevy Presidents Day” sale, and it got me thinking that as I’m getting older and the motion picture industry I work in continues to export an exponentially increasing numbers of jobs to other states or countries based on their tax incentives, next year I might find myself celebrating “Chevy Residents Day”.

Why Yes, I Do Have A Mobilehome

Why yes, I do want one of those mobile homes!

This is because I might be living in my Outlander van.

A Piece Of Crap Absorbs A Bigger Piece Of Crap

It’s official now, Time Warner Cable has been sucked up by the hive and has become yet one more cog in the huge miserable machine that is Comcast, a company that (since 1985) I’ve called ComCrap, a.k.a. Com(pletely) Crap, and that’s when I’m in a charitable mood. This move puts Time Warner Cable into the Ancient History division for me, I won’t continue to do business with them, nor allow anyone I know to so either. For those who were even moderately unhappy with the benign neglect that was the signature treatment from TWC, all I can say is BOHICA.

Bless you Mel Brooks!

This hits home with me as seriously as a heart attack because despite my choice of cutting off my cable for T.V. service three or four years ago and using an old school, which is the only school I know, roof mount style Radio Shack antenna instead, I’m aware that I still need some sort of connection for my internet service for a while longer until I get more comfortable with the idea of using a program that allows me to sidestep the cost of paying twice to the VERItably greediest bastards in the world of scumbag cell service companies for the use of my cell phone as an internet access hot spot to feed the daily browsing of my MacBook.

Advance To The Rear

It’s rumored that Kim Kardashian spent a few hours with a psychiatrist talking about a feeling she had of constantly being followed.

The doctor asked her to describe who or what it was that was following her.

Kim said she thought she had sometimes noticed reflections in her bathroom mirror of two short bald fat guys.

The doctor hesitated to answer her quickly because he was thinking of how much he would lose in billable hours if he told her what she had perceived as two short bald fat guys behind her was just her ass jiggling.

The Big Bang Theory Demonstrated On A Small Campus

News reports today say that 22 Iraqi muslim student militants studying the craft of suicide bombing were killed when the instructor for their entry level “Beginning Terrorism 101″ class accidentally used an armed belt during a demonstration. 

Push the red, not the blue button

O.K. class, which button we never push?

Two questions come to mind:

1. Was that instructor hired because he submitted the lowest bid for the job, or because his uncle ran the school? 

and:

2. Assuming that the instructor (or his remaining parts) and the class were not in a flash each demoted to infidel, does this mean that they will have to outsource to be able to find 1,584 Virgins (72 each for the 23 martyrs) in Iraq? I mean, it’s possible that there could still be that many virgins in Iraq, but I wouldn’t bet my money (or my life) on it.

Things That Could Make Me Puke?

One of these is a little different from the rest, but which one?

1. Someone throwing up while sitting next to me in a poorly ventilated room .

2. Looking down at an apple I’m eating and finding only half a worm.

3. Scratching at a scab and then sticking that finger deep in my mouth.

4. Learning that another member of the Bush family is entering politics.

5. Tied to a chair and forced to watch five minutes of “How I Met Your Mother”.

6. Similar to # 5, but “Super Fun Night” would only take one minute .

                                                        And you?

Go Deep And Buttonhook Behind The (Rob) Ford

I have to ask of you, are there any others out there who are like me, ordinary sorts of folks who are both total sports illiterates yet at the same time consider themselves to be obsessive political junkies?

Image

You know, those people who eagerly await what is likely the soon to be ex-governor Chris Christie’s last public appearance at the super bowl but definitely not his last time at the supper bowl, where the Guvster will throw the first pass?

Just asking….

Rumors, including perhaps this one that I just made up, are flying that politicians in New York may decide to shut down the George Washington Bridge early in the day on Super Bowl Sunday in retribution for a similar alleged action by some yet to be named person on the wrong side of the Hudson River unless the governor’s assistants are required to wear red jackets, like the ones worn by those crew folk you are certain would be thrown under the Enterprise wore in the Star Trek t.v. series and movies, this way it will be easier to know who are the next ones to go.
