Random crap..........

This is one of those blog entries that kinda just wander aimlessly.............

A joke............

A guy is driving around Tennessee and he sees a sign in front of a house: "Talking Dog For Sale." He rings the bell and the owner tells him the dog is in the backyard. The guy goes into the backyard and sees a Labrador retriever sitting there.

"You talk?" he asks.

"Yep," the Lab replies.

"So, what's your story?"

The Lab looks up and says, "Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA about my gift, and in no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.

I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running."

"But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security wandering near suspicious characters and listening in."

"I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals. I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired."

The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog.

"Ten dollars," the guy says.

"Ten dollars? This dog is amazing. Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?"

"Because he's a liar. He never did any of that shit."

Harry Potter is coming to an end. I'm wondering what JK will write after she is done with Harry Potter. I'm sure she has lots of ideas floating around in her brain.

Thank You for Smoking. As a former smoker, this looks like an interesting movie. My opinion? Everyone has a right to do whatever they want as long as it doesn't affect me, I don't have to pay for it and I don't have to smell cigarette smoke.

I'm one of those "asshole" former smokers, let me give you an example. A few nights ago, I was heading into work when several cashiers were on break and standing outside right next to the entrance of our store smoking. I told them they have a designated area about 25 yards from the entrance and they need to use it.

I stood there and made a scene until they moved......sue me. I hate smelling that shit. Not that I was any better when I did smoke, but I always tried to be considerate of people that didn't smoke.

This is just so wrong. I suppose that's why I am posting it. Some guys trick one of their buddies into believing he won the lottery......he didn't. NSFW due to language.

I love Dave Barry.

If I never hear Git-R-Done ever again, that would be okay with me. Here's a whole list. And another............I like "spokesweasel".

Learn a little bit about why Dell Computer is a bank. Pretty interesting. I've never been a fan of Dell, they make nice solid computers- but I feel they are overpriced for what you get.

Here's another white board about root kits just in case you are wondering what the hell a root kit is anyways. ZD Net has a whole bunch of these on all kinds of subjects, you do have to provide them with some info to get all their articles, downloads and such but nobody said all of it has to be 100% accurate.......... check'em out.

I have a couple of guilty pleasures in of them is Sam Kinison. He certainly wasn't P.C. nor was he very couth but I like his stuff anyways. Here's a very mild clip, this was his first appearance on TV. More here.

I downloaded some of his clips and listened to them at work last night. One of the few comedians that make me laugh out loud. I'm still pissed he was killed by a drunk driver back in '92.

Don't drink and drive kids..................

Oh and by the way........Happy New Year.

Till later.

Thank You for Smoking: excellent satire written by Christopher Buckley...very good read. I didn't know they made it into a movie.

Ditto the review of Buckley's book. A must read for present and past smokers, but I'm not sure non-smokers would fully appreciate it. Maybe even more timely now in light of Abramoff, Skilling, et al.

And a Happy New Year to you :^)
