Push Button Receive Bacon

Image Hosted by
I have no idea why this makes me laugh, but I'd thought I would share it.

I did have to photoshop the graphics as the word "received" was spelled incorrectly. I'm not the smartest guy on the planet but it bugs the hell out of me when grown adults can't spell correctly or express themselves on paper.

Back a few years ago I was a production manager for a large commercial donut bakery and I had to write up a report because we missed a monthly production goal. I basically blew sunshine up my boss's ass in about 500 words.

He loved the report, it didn't really say anything or give any promise of increased performance in the future, but it had lots of big words and I'm pretty sure he didn't want to embarrass himself by asking someone what I meant.

Sometimes you can baffle 'em with bullshit-sometimes you can't, the only important thing is to know the difference..........

Our ride for Saturday afternoon got cancelled and it was a good thing I suppose-because I slept in until 3:30 Saturday afternoon. I usually get off work at 5 AM Saturday morning and I either get my wife up so we can eat breakfast or meet my pop at 5AM and eat breakfast with him. Since my folks are out of town-my wife, our 12 year son and I went out for breakfast so I didn't get to sleep until later in the morning.

I'm not the skinniest guy in the world (I'm not grossly obese either) but if I ate at restaurants all the time-I'd be a fat ass because I love turkey egg cheese omelets, home fries and bacon all fried with a 1/4 stick of butter. Yum. Some folks eat like that every day-once a week is okay for me. I wanna live past 50..........

I like to read my comments and saw a new person make a comment on my last blog entry-thanks Ptelea- I added you to my links section-I'm enjoying reading about you and your cats. Kinda reminds me of our first (and only) cat.

We took in a stray back when my wife and I were first married-it had no hair on it's frost bitten ears and was deaf as a post. In fact it was about the mangiest cat I had ever seen but it was ours. Sadly, Dave only lived for another year or so but she at least she had a warm place to shed hair for the last year of her life........

Fast forward to now and our allergic 12 year old is in the process of getting allergy shots so we can get another cat-that's gonna be interesting and I'm sure it'll provide me plenty of photo-ops. for this blog.

In my mind, there are a few professions that have my ultimate respect. Among them are teachers, police, firemen (and woman) and nurses. I bet Arnold would be changing his tune if a member of his family was in an understaffed hospital. Of course he probably has his own hospital somewhere............

It must suck to be a Republican.

I don't know who is responsible for this web site, but I'd like the thank them for making me spit my soda all over the monitor.

Interesting article. As I read it, I realized that every stitch of clothing I am wearing right now was bought at Wal-Mart. Hmmmm.

I really do think George has started drinking again.......Here is a list of his Top Ten "Bushisms"

Top 10 Funniest Bushisms of All Time
The Top Ten Funniest (and Saddest) Mistakes, Misstatements, Bloopers and Blunders By President George W. Bush (so far...)
1. "I am here to make an announcement that this Thursday, ticket counters and airplanes will fly out of Ronald Reagan Airport." —Washington, D.C., Oct. 3, 2001

4. "There's no doubt in my mind that we should allow the world worst leaders to hold America hostage, to threaten our peace, to threaten our friends and allies with the world's worst weapons." —South Bend, Indiana, Sept. 5, 2002.

5. "There's an old...saying in Tennessee...I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee that says Fool me once...(3 second pause)... Shame on...(4 second pause)...Shame on you....(6 second pause)...Fool me...Can't get fooled again." —Nashville, Tennessee, Sept. 17, 2002.

"The illiteracy level of our children are appalling." —Washington, D.C., Jan. 23, 20004

Rick Santorum talks out his ass quite a bit. I'm proud to have him as a senator......... Not.

As much as I like bicycles because they save gas, are good for exercise and peace of mind....I still like cars and 540 cubic inches is hard to argue with. Too bad it cost almost a half-million dollars. I had to reread that dollar amount in the article, I couldn't fathom paying that much for a 69 Camaro that isn't really a 69 Camaro. Unless of course I was stinking filthy rich-then I'd write the check in a heartbeat.

Finally............all you've ever wanted or needed to know about Paris Hilton.

Thanks for reading.

Thank you for your compliments - I am honored to have you link to my blog. I am a newbie at the mechanics of blogging and have set up no links yet but you being non P.C. is not a problem. After reading your blog, I usually have bookmarked and forwarded several articles to friends! And I feel I've read a pretty good review of the current news - thanks for taking the time to pull it all together.

So POOR Rick Santorum has to carry the laundry basket up the stairs and his wife has put on weight - oh yeah - I can see the logic of them receiving over $300,000 for their suffering. I 'suffer' from weight gain but I would have to sue myself - unless I could sue the makers of that bacon dispenser for making it too easy to eat just one more piece!

I'll look forward to hearing about your cat - your son must really want a cat to be willing to go through all of the allergy shots. I do think that if you are able to appreciate cats, they can add a lot of love and entertainment to a family.

Yes, Daniel and his older sister have always wanted a cat. With Dan's allergies and asthma easing off a bit-he decided to go through with the allergy screening.

We had previously babysat my in-laws cat and we all enjoyed having an extra family member around. The cat liked it as well because when my mother-in-law came to pick her cat up, the cat hid and it got to stay an extra day.

Glad you're enjoying the blog, I've always enjoyed writing, now since the advent of blogs-I get to practice more:-)

it is true
George W. Bush is poor when it comes to public speaking and perhaps even weaker when it comes to leading our country

he frustrates me....

but Bush does not frustrate me as much as the people who elected (I should say voted for him) him and the people who continue to support him

there is not enough water in my body to create enough spit to hawk a loogie on every car with a "W" sticker on it

sorry if I misspelled anything
my spelling is quite poor as well
