Random Questions on a Thursday Afternoon

Random Questions on a Thursday Afternoon

People search for their birth mothers and birth fathers. Does anyone ever search for their birth anesthesiologist? Or the person who pitched the placenta?

Why don’t peace activists protest Star Wars?

Kelly Osborne quit Fashion Police because one of her co-stars made fun of the way another person looks. Isn’t Fashion Police a show about making fun of the way people look?

Would The Who had made it as far if they were called The Huh?

How does a dog, who can’t remember that a relative is not a stranger to be barked at 2 seconds after they have left the house, always expect a walk as soon as dinner is over every night?

How is it possible that this is the first day of Summer break?

I Just Voted. It Was Like Going to A Bad Buffet!

I Just Voted. It Was Like Going to A Bad Buffet!

I just voted. I believe in participating in our democracy, but I have to admit I’m feeling pretty disillusioned. A few thoughts on the 2014 election…

1) I just looked at a ballot that was 5 pages long and 2 1/2 had offices where the candidate was running unopposed.

2) Being forced to choose between Republicans and Democrats is like being asked if you want gravy or cheesy hash browns with your dysfunction. Depending on your social issue tastes, either will taste okay, but both will kill you in the end.

3) The time is ripe for a strong 3rd party.

Carry on, Citizens!

 

Why Do We Say That?

Why Do We Say That?

Have you ever wondered why people say some of the phrases or idioms they use? (How many of you haven’t used the word idiom since high school?) I just saw a headline that said Cindy Crawford’s daughter looks like the spitting image of her. I’ve played a lot of baseball and softball in my life. In case you didn’t know, there’s a lot of spitting in baseball. I can’t for the life of me ever remember spitting on the floor of a dugout and thinking, “that looks exactly like a supermodel. And her daughter!”
