U is for

.
Unctuous
I used to follow a food blog. It has been so long I can't even remember the name. It doesn't matter.
I stopped following because the blogger and his partner purported to be evaluating various restaurants, but the postings wreaked of oleaginous hypocrisy, smarmy self-importance and buttery praise.

It's not always entertaining here.

I saw this on Tuesday.
At the bottom of the article it said, "The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of LZ Granderson."

Why is he allowed to hoard a particular opinion instead of allowing the rest of us to share it?

Maybe, just maybe, I will carry this beyond opinion and make it about judgment.

Now there's a video in place where he responds to reader comments.

He's retired from blogging and become a lurker who comments.

Knucklehead hosted a Roast. It worth taking a look at.

There was a time when "S" was for a certain Pac Ten University, known to the locals and some opponents as Snodfart.

'nother break

.
The folks doing the A to Z thingy get Sundays off. Well you just can't shut down a great mind... even if you want to.

I have just been informed my mind is far from great.
Hence, my response, "Read the title of this blog aloud!"

A woman was unhappy with the way her laundry
was done at the local Chinese Laundry, so she
wrote a note and put it in the bag with the next
collection of soiled clothes:
'USE MORE SOAP ON PANTIES!'

She got the clean laundry back, and was still
dissatisfied with the results, so, the following
week she enclosed another note:
'USE MORE SOAP ON PANTIES!'

The Chinese laundry man became very annoyed,
and when her clean Laundry was delivered, it
contained a note from him:
'I USE PLENTY SOAP ON PANTIES!
USE MORE PAPER ON ASS!

Time for a break in the action

.
On their way to get married, a young couple was involved in a fatal car accident. The couple found themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven. While waiting they began to wonder; could they possibly get married in Heaven?

When St. Peter arrived they asked him if they could get married in Heaven. St. Peter said, "I don't know. This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out and he left.

The couple sat and waited for an answer.... for a couple of months.

While they waited, they discussed the pros and cons. If they were allowed to get married in Heaven, should they get married, what with the eternal aspect of it all? "What if it doesn't work? Are we stuck in Heaven together forever?"

Another month passed. St. Peter finally returned, looking somewhat bedraggled.

"Yes," he informed the couple, "You can get married in Heaven."

"Great!" said the couple. "But we were just wondering; what if things don't work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?"

St. Peter, red-faced with anger, slammed his clipboard on the ground.

"What's wrong?" asked the frightened couple.

"OH, COME ON!" St. Peter shouted. "It took me 3 months to find a clergyman up here! Do you have ANY idea how long it'll take to find a lawyer?"

Insert 'off topic' post here

I wonder what the Iranians are finding so interesting about this blog?

Yes, I have been checking the stats again. The bluebird of happiness is now outpacing the brown noser, which is actually in third place behind this post. Ironically that third one is a link to a really good post on someone else's blog.

we return you now to the regularly scheduled drivel posts

Feceration




Don't bother to look it up. It has only just now been coined. Just think about spreading something really, really stinky around and you'll know what feceration is. Coprophiliacs seek it.
