A Clown and His Worshipers

A Clown and His Worshipers

Have you hear the old saying “A fool and his money are soon parted?” After reading about the most recent Kanye West nonsense, it made me wonder if a clown and his worshipers will be soon parted. When you go to a Kanye concert, he doesn’t want you to dance, sing along, or clap. He wants you to worship him. And those who don’t, get singled out. Make no mistake, the Clownye must be worshiped. If not, he gets very put out.

The other night he stopped the show to demand that everyone stand up. 2 people didn’t. Said Kanye, “This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do the song — it’s unbelievable.” He then sent a couple of sent a couple of security guards to check out why the offenders wouldn’t stand up. One had a prosthetic limb and the other was in a wheel chair. How awful! How awful that anyone with a handicap dare come to worship at the feet of Kanye.

How many instances of stupidity are we going to accept from this guy before we stop watching? How many people are going to keep buying his music, despite his complete disdain for his audience, other artists, the music industry… Oh, but it gets worse. He and Kim Kardashian are making little Kardashyes. Or Kanyashians. Or whatever they call their offspring. Am I the only one worried that America’s 2 biggest narcissists are squeezing out kids together?

What would you augment?

What would you augment?

Do you ever read an article and think, “Huh, I would have never thought of that!” That’s what I said when I read this article about jaw augmentation. That’s no typo. Jaw augmentation is a thing. So is urban jousting, but that’s a different blog post. At any rate, men all over New York, Dallas, and LA are apparently getting their jaws enhanced. It seems they don’t feel their jaws are manly enough.

This of course got me thinking, (This where things usually go wrong!) “What part of me would I choose to augment? I’ve given this a lot of thought in an effort to deliver you riveting insight and to avoid doing day job work. I thought about augmenting my chin, but I was concerned my dog wouldn’t know who I was anymore.

I’ve long considered hair implants —on my knees. I want to be the start of the kneebeard trend. But my wife, who is very insightful, slipped a “No Kneebeards” clause into our wedding vows. I couldn’t remember actually saying that, but she showed me a video of the vows and sure enough, I said it. However, the voice doesn’t sound like mine, so I’m not so sure that some editing hasn’t taken place.

I decided on having my fingers augmented. I think if they were about a half inch longer, I could type faster. I always slow down when I have to type numbers or this symbol: ~.

So, what part of your body would you augment?

The Harvard Yard Sale

The Harvard Yard Sale

What has our nation come to? Even the lofty Harvard University has fallen on hard times. So much so, that this very weekend they were having  a yard sale! Yes, that is a real picture on the campus of Harvard taken yesterday and yes, it’s a yard sale. I found a couch and an Easy Bake oven. I’m not sure if I can bring either on the plane as a carry-on, however.

So, if you’re in the Cambridge area today, stop on buy the Harvard Yard Sale. Book lovers can score some great deals on 18th century literature (3 for a dollar) and statues of old dead guys are going for $10! Hurry, don’t delay!!

Carry on, Citizens!
