Veteran’s Day

I just wanted to say a quick “Thank you!!!!’ to all the veterans out there that served their country with honor and distinction. Your noble sacrifice is appreciated!

Here’s an ESPN video about Vietnam veteran and Pittsburgh Steeler halfback Rocky Blier that will surely warm your heart:

Happy Birthday, Pythons!

Forty years ago today – October 5, 1969 – Monty Python’s Flying Circus debuted on Britain’s BBC One!

Of course, the Python guys were already known in British comedy circles before Flying Circus. Nevertheless, the show became an icon of TV history, spun-off four hilarious movies, and made worldwide stars of John Cleese, Eric Idle, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam and Graham Chapman (R.I.P.).

God bless, guys! Thanks for being so funny!

Happy Birthday, Madonna!

Happy Birthday, Madonna!

Madonna Birthday 09

Every year on this date, since I started this website back in 2002, I have written up a quick note to Madonna, thanking her for doing what she does and telling her how I’m happy to have been a fan all these years.

This year, however, will be a bit different. This year I want to beg her to switch to a diet of cheeseburgers and milkshakes and stop working out so damn much. I get that you want to be in shape, girl. But come on… the recent brouhaha about the state of your arms should tell you something! About perfume, you once said that “women should smell beautiful”. Well, lemme tell you this: women should not have right-angles on their bodies, either… and most people would prefer Marilyn Monroe to Twiggy any day of the week. Please ditch the Skeletor arms and get back to being fabulous, OK?

PS – I like “Celebration”, your new song.

Happy Birthday, America!

Happy Birthday, America!

I’m sure some of the liberals out there are racing to publish “America’s first birthday with a black president and what it all means” stories.

Me? I’m gonna sit on a chair made in China and get tanked on Irish beer and listen to English bands whilst eating German sausages with French mustard along with some Belgian fries… and I’ll do it wearing a shirt made in Honduras, jeans made in Malaysia, boxers made in India, and boots made in England but sold only through a Slovakian website… ‘cos that’s how I roll! Too bad I don’t have a Japanese car to drive to get to the party, no?


Seriously… Happy Independence Day, everyone! Have fun, but be careful out there!
