Q: What do you call a pig with laryngitis? A: Disgruntled.

header

 

It seems I am pretty much totally out of touch with reality. It is a good thing I didn’t try to go and pay any bills, or do any shopping, on August 1st, because I was completely aware that day was a civic holiday, here, in Canada. I finally clued in when I noticed that most of the Canadian websites I regularly visit did not resume updating on Monday.

 

Due to a couple of negative comments, let me clarify the statement I made, in my previous post, about the winner of the “Rear of the Year” award. I never said big butts were ugly. I merely stated that they are not a turn on for me, as they are for some guys. And I still don’t think the winner was deserving of the award. My opinion.

 

Now, don’t take this the wrong way. I am not gay (not that there is anything wrong with that), but this guy has a nicer ass than that award winner. That guy standing there likes it, too.

On a somewhat related note, that of what some guys like, who thinks that, in most of the “before” shots, these women actually look better than the fake look they have, with the overdone makeup? Now, I’m not saying “Don’t wear makeup”. I just don’t care for the artificial look women who use a ton of it have. And I think these girls need someone in their lives to tell them they look good without it. Or, at least, so much of it. I can understand women wanting to cover up bad complexion, but it is possible to do that without creating a mask which completely changes your appearance.

 

Although it is better, now, I never understood why women were not allowed to be equal to men. In my opinion, a woman should be able to do any damn thing she wants. What was the harm in running a race, anyway?

How much would you like to bet that there are no women in this group? I totally disagree with this decision. If I caught someone trying to take an upskirt photo of my wife/girlfriend, or one of my sisters, well, lets just say what happened next would not be fun.

People, a lot of them, anyway, are pigs. Sure, this event would have cleaning staff, whose job it is to pick up all this trash. But they no doubt work by the hour. But is it really so hard to find one of the garbage receptacles that were likely set up all around? At the recent concert I attended, in Saskatoon, I was pleased to see that the group I was with, and, in fact, most of the audience, policed their own areas, even though it was a bit of a walk to the garbage cans.

I just saw this photo, again, that I posted in my previous issue, of the 4×4 parked at the edge of a cliff. Of the 8 comments, about 1/3 of them believed that the pic had been rotated 30 degrees, for effect. But the proof that they give is the angle of the “horizon”. You have to remember, though, that the photo was obviously taken in the mountains, so the “horizon” might just be the side of another slope. And that still would not have that tree growing vertically, as I thought all plants naturally did.  Either way, I still say that parking there was foolish.

When I was a child, I remember my mom telling me, “Son, when you grow up, you can marry any girl you please.” When I became a young man, I learned the sad fact was that I could not please any of them.

 

Three old guys from the twilight home were given, as a treat, a day at the beach. And it turned out to be a nudist beach. They were watching the various young women agog. When the prettiest of them all walked by, one of the men said, “I’d like to give her a hug.” “I’d like to give her a kiss,” said the second man. And the third old man said, “What was that other thing we used to do?”

Jack goes to his friend Joe and says, “I’m sleeping with the minister’s wife. Can you keep him back in church for an hour after service for me?” Joe doesn’t like it, but being a friend, he agrees. After the service, Joe starts talking to the minister, asking him all sorts of stupid questions, just to keep him occupied. Finally the minister gets annoyed and asks Joe what he’s really up to. Joe, feeling guilty, finally confesses to the minister. “My friend is sleeping with your wife right now, so he asked me to keep you occupied.” The minister thinks for a minute, smiles, puts a brotherly hand
on Joe’s shoulder and says, “You better hurry home now. My wife died a year ago.”

 

Little Red Riding Hood is skipping down the road when she sees the Big Bad Wolf crouched down behind a log. “My, what big eyes you have, Mr. Wolf.” The wolf jumps up and runs away. Further down the road, Red Riding Hood sees the wolf again. This time, he is crouched behind a tree stump. “My what big ears you have, Mr. Wolf.” Again, the wolf jumps up and runs away. A couple of miles down the road, Red Riding Hood sees the wolf yet again, this time crouched down behind a road sign. “My, what teeth you have, Mr. Wolf.” The irritable, Big Bad Wolf jumps up and screams, “Will you kindly fuck off! I’m trying to take a shit!”

 

An antelope was asked to go to a dance. She bought a new dress and necklace for the dance. Then she had her horns and hooves done. Since she lived alone, she struggled to dress herself. Running late, she encountered a herd of stampeding buffalo approaching the trail. She thought she was fast enough to get past them. But, unfortunately, she was run over by the buffalo. And this is the origin of the self- dressed stamped antelope. Yeah, I know it’s bad, but, if I had to suffer, so do you… 

 

One October, my wife and I spent a vacation on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula. We were eager to visit the rain forests near the coast, but we heard that snow slides had made some of the roads impassable. Although apprehensive about the conditions we might run into, we drove on. Sure enough, we had only gone a short way up the High Rain Forest road when we saw a sign that read, “Ice: 10 Miles.” Five miles farther on, there was another sign that said, “Ice: 5 Miles.” The next one read, “Ice: 1/2 Mile.” We practically crept that half-mile. We finally came to the last sign. It was outside a small grocery store and it said, “Ice: 75 Cents.”
