Skunky Junk

Monday, February 28, 2005 | 0 Comments

I ran across an interesting article on the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel website about a pet skunk that bit a man's penis in Oconomowoc,WI. I think the comment of the article author and the reaction of the owner show the healthy sense of humor that people in Wisconsin have.
"He was playing rough with him on his lap, and Ozzie bit down on my husband's penis," right through his sweat pants, she said.
Several stitches later, Dan's fine except for the realization that he'll forever be known as the guy with a skunk on his junk.
"He always wanted to be famous. Maybe now he will be. He was hoping to do it more through hunting," Carol said.

Actually it happened in Rome which about a 15 minute drive from Ocoonomowoc. Ocoonomowoc just happened to have the nearest hospital...

I believe the fictional TV show Picket Fences followed the lives of the residents of the small town of Rome, Wisconsin, where weird things happened.

At least that's what TV Tome says:

Thanks raster. When reading the article it appeared that it might have happened just outside of Oconomowoc, but I couldn't get any extra info on it. Yeah, Picket Fences was about Rome, Wisconsin. I remember it was a pretty good show and there was a midget psychic.

Fox vs Fox

Sunday, February 27, 2005 | 0 Comments

I saw the episode of The Simpson's this week on Fox in which the town decides to bring back tourism by legalizing same sex marriage. I guess Patty can join the growing list of outted cartoon characters (although she actually admits that she's gay). Fox News has always had a plethora of these finger pointing idiots on their station outing characters left and right telling us that the liberals running television are trying to turn us all gay. What do these people do for a living that they have so much time to sit and watch cartoons all day and decide which ones are gay, and why would they want to? They obviously seem to not like cartoons. Maybe they weren't allowed to watch the cross-dressing Buggs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, and Road Runner because their parents were afraid that was what was making them gay. In other words, I think they do protest too much. These Bible thumping morons should just quit being so bitter, accept the way they are, and come out of the closet now that all of these gay cartoon characters have made enough of the rest of civilization gay for it to be acceptable. However, I would like to see Fox duke it out with themselves over this; that would be quite a show!

It Was A Funky Town Day

Friday, February 25, 2005 | 0 Comments

I always find that on a slow news day they whip out some pretty bizarre topics. The other day on our local nightly news they did a piece on "Going Back to Funky Town". I do not know what the connection between the Twin Cities and Funky Town is, but apparently someone found one. I could just image this reporter sitting on this story forever, just waiting for the events of the world to get so boring that they could finally succeed in pushing it through. So now instead of calling them "slow news days" I will refer to them as Funky Town days.

Soda Pants!

Wednesday, February 23, 2005 | 0 Comments

About ten years ago I heard this bit from a comedian that I thought was so true and funny. (His name escapes me- but I will figure it out eventually and put it in here.). He said wouldn't it be great if we could solve our problems like kids. Like when your boss is telling you to do something that you just don't want to do or telling you that you did something wrong you could just say, "Nuh-uh." When someone is yelling at you, you could just say something silly like, "Pop-a-wheelie!" to throw them off. He also suggested that just for fun you could run into a building and yell "Soda Pants!" to see what people would do. Well, in the past ten years I have taken these suggestions and they not only work but they are a lot of fun too! You really have to be careful with who you try the "nuh-uh" thing on though; there are so many people in this world without a shred of humor left in them. But I have interchanged the "pop-a-wheelie"/"soda pants" thing. People really stop in their tracks when they are getting their yell on and then you counter with "Soda Pants!" outta nowhere! Some will look really confused and stutter, "Huh?" Others, just start laughing. And then there are those that will call you an idiot and just walk away.

Oh! The Irony!

Monday, February 21, 2005 | 0 Comments

I was listening to NPR last night. They were playing an audio taped conversation between President Bush and one of his father's former aides. On the tapes Bush admits that he used to smoke marijuana. When asked why he lied about it to the public he responded by saying that he didn't want the children to follow his example. How about the lying George? He was then asked how he justified being so harsh and critical about Gore's pot use. Well, Al Gore is a pathelogical liar, he replies. Who's the pathelogical liar? Maybe he was really so harsh because he felt that Gore actually didn't smoke any pot but true to his pathelogical lying ways lied about it to jump on the former druggie bandwagon? But here's something funny, the person that he was talking to on the tapes was a guy name Doug Wead (pronounced "weed'', hence the funny).
The White House did not deny the tape's authenticity. Instead they simply said that it was supposed to be a private conversation between the President and a person that he thought was his friend. Don't you consider the American people your friend George? Why wouldn't you tell us? Apparently Wead was more his friend than the country that he is supposed to be serving.

Parking Snow Rules

Wednesday, February 16, 2005 | 0 Comments

The snow parking rules state that when there is snow on the ground you have the right to a crappy parking job, but some have taken it way too far. I have seen people parked so that they completely block alleys, parking lot driving aisles, and even worse- block other drivers completely in. Now I can understand some of the vomity parking when there is a lot of snow on the ground, but even the winter days when all of the snow has been cleared and the parking lines are clearly visible people are still just parking wherever the hell they feel like. What is wrong with these people? It's like they are just waiting for any excuse no matter how slight to be inconsiderate to their fellow human beings. I wish I had the time to let the air out of all their tires to return the favor.

First off, I agree with you on the snow parking rules. Second off, why would people do that? Are they too dumb to look?

Happy Valentine's Day!

Monday, February 14, 2005 | 0 Comments

Although I may not have been a big fan of Christmas, I have always loved St. Valentine's Day. I feel that it is not only for those that are dating or in love, but for all of us to show some brotherly love to one another. So I would like to wish everyone a happy Valentine's Day and encourage everyone to extend some extra kindness and affection to those around you.

What If We Could Clone Jesus?

Thursday, February 10, 2005 | 0 Comments

I know that most Christian groups have sided against the use of cloning, especially when it comes to humans; but I was wondering if they would feel the same way if they were given the opportunity to clone Jesus. For instance, if there was some viable DNA found on the Shroud of Turin, do you think most Christian groups would maintain that cloning was a sin? Or would they mull over if not jump at the chance to have their savior here before them in the living flesh? There is supposed to be a second coming after all and there was no mention made of it not being due to cloning. We could even keep it true to the original and have a virgin bear the clone of Jesus.
