Dec. 31, 2016 - Go BUCKS!!!

So the Buckeyes lost to Clemson tonight in the College Football National Semifinal 31-0.

  • Has the lowest number of returning starters in 2016 of ANY Division I team. 
  • Has 42 freshman play during the year. 
  • Goes 11-1 in the regular season. 
  • Beats michigan. 
I'll take it.
It's ALWAYS a great day to be a BUCKEYE!!!

Dec. 25, 2016 - Someone's LAST Christmas

It was sad to hear of the passing of George Michael today. 

I saw him in concert in October 1987 at the Los Angeles Forum. He put on a great show that night as he embarked on his solo career. I felt bad for his WHAM partner, Andrew Ridgeley, as he was cast aside much like Miami Vice’s Phillip Michael Thomas was by Don Johnson. To counter Mr. Spock, sometimes the needs of the “One” outweigh the needs of the “Duo.”

I had paid tribute to WHAM! on last year’s 80s Cruise by wearing his trademark “Choose Life” T-shirt. Many people cheered my shirt because they thought I was making a “Pro Life “ statement, which I was OK with as well.

I think all radio stations should honor George Michael by never playing “Last Christmas” again since this was his “Last Christmas.” I, for one, would selfishly appreciate that gesture.

Dec. 23, 2016 - Friday Funny - Reindeer Games

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY has a timely Christmas theme.

Too funny. I only wish I had a Santa suit, because there is plenty of (rein)deer road kill in Ohio.

Dec. 12, 2016 - PPM - Two Cents Times Five

This week's PET PEEVE MONDAY (PPM) is that renown feminist Gloria Steinem is refusing to pay her taxes.  More specifically, she says she will send the portion of her income taxes that would normally go toward funding Planned Parenthood directly to the organization should President Trump or the Republicans take away their funding.

Dear. Ms. Steinem -  Please don't call me a misogynist if I refer to you as "Buttercup."  It's not a gender-specific term.  This is not how the tax-collecting, government-spending process works.  

Even if you were able to line-item your contribution and select how your tax monies were spent, consider your actual contribution.

The math behind it is pretty hard to understand. Again, not a misogynist, but I do have a MBA in Finance while your degree is not.   Let me break it down for you.

US 2016 Annual Budget - $3.900,000,000,000
2016 Planned Parenthood (PP) Funding (US taxes) - $500,000,000
PCT of US Budget spent on PP -  0.013%
PCT of PP business that is abortion based - 33% (they claim its 3%)

Gloria Steinem annual income - $178,000
Gloria Steinem taxes paid (28% bracket) - $49,840

Note - We all assume Democrats take no tax deductions because they want to pay their "fair share." Her effective rate is probably closer to 15%.

Total amount of taxes paid by Gloria Steinem that goes to abortion funding is:

 ($49,840 *0.00013 * .33) or $2.13

If you index this amount for her actual effective tax rate and the 3% Planned Parenthood figure they post in their literature,  her possible TRUE contribution is:

$.10 or ONE THIN DIME.

So Ms. Gloria Steinem - you can hardly afford to put your two cents in, but thanks for taking a stand.  A position that cannot be legally performed or supported.

Sorry Buttercup.

By the way - this is Misandry, which is just as bad as Misogyny.

Dec. 9, 2016 - FF - Never Trumper's Merry XMas

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY (FF) is dedicated to those disgruntled non-Trump voters.

It's been a month since the election and we are just over a month from his Inauguration. 

It seems some people will be delivering coal to their kids for Christmas.

Actually, it probably won't be coal but some earth-friendly, non fossil fuel substitute.  Maybe a voided, outdated, carbon off-set gift certificate.  

You may want to check Al Gore's web site to see what is available.  Just stay away from the gently used sauna/spa bathrobe section.  Just saying.

Dec. 2, 2016 - FF - Ding Dong the King is Dead

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY (FF) is the death of Fidel Castro.

Fidel's death had been rumored for many years, but it was finally confirmed last week.  He outlived many US Presidents, assassination attempts, and coups.

Although, it was never officially reported, I think the election of Donald Trump can take credit for putting the final proverbial nail in Fidel's coffin.

Nov. 30, 2016 - Loser, Again.

I feel somewhat bad for this Loser of the Week.

He had pretty good intentions and looked good for most of the game.  He should have taken a selfie when his team was up by 10 points early in the third quarter.

Unfortunately, he waited until after THE OHIO STATE University had won in Double Overtime to take the picture.

Bad Timing, LOSER.

Nov. 26, 2016 - Jim Harbaugh is Sad

THE OHIO STATE University beat michigan today 30-27 in double overtime.

The OSU Coach, Urban Meyer,  is now 5-0 against michigan and 2-0 against their coach Jim Harbaugh.

Put all the stats aside.  This is the best story of today and for thing to come.

Nov. 25, 2016 - FF - No Ring For You

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY (FF) is about the upcoming GAME next weekend.

The #2 Ohio State Buckeyes will be playing the #3 michigan Wolverines.  At stake is a possible Big Ten Championship game berth and/or a place in the College Football Playoffs.

Sad, yet true.  Some day, I may have to delete this post. But I doubt it.


Nov. 25, 2016 - FF - Black Friday Patience or Patients

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY is what Black Friday has become.

REALLY?  Sales have become so important that it now inspires patients to leave their hospital beds?

Nov. 18, 2016 - FF - Tolerance Defined

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY (FF) is a statement on last week's election of Donald Trump.

People are still protesting.  People are still stating that he is "Not My President." 

These are the same people who claim to be tolerant.  

The same people who shamed Donald Trump for not stating he would accept the will of the people and acknowledge the results of the 2016 election.

I love this phrase from the movie, "The Princess Bride."  I use it often, as I should.


Friday, November 11, 2016

Nov. 11, 2016 - FF - Buttercups Unite

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY (FF) is dedicated to all the BUTTERCUPS out there.

I'm sure that the term, BUTTERCUP, will be added to the next year's edition of Oxford Dictionary.  If they can add words like "selfie" and "YOLO", BUTTERCUP can't be far behind.  

That assumes the dictionary authors are able to get WiFi service from their "Safe Space" they have retreated to since the election of Donald Trump.

Nov. 10, 2016 - Results Validated

The ironies just continue.  All through October and up to the election, we were lectured by the Democrats AND the media about how Donald Trump and his followers should accept the election results.  

"It would be a threat to our Democracy" was the rallying cry.

How quickly the tables and emotions turn.  Grow up BUTTERCUPS.

Wednesday, November 09, 2016

Nov. 9, 2016 - Results are IN!!!

WOW.   No one saw this result coming.

The news media is crying.  Students are protesting.  Hillary is in a drunken stupor.

It is almost surreal, the response.  The silent majority has spoken.  

Do they hear us NOW?

Oct. 14, 2016 - Friday Funny - Apology Accepted

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY is very appropriate as we head into the final days of the election.

I would actually stop and give this man some money based on his honesty.  I only wish more people would own up to their past mistakes.

Oct. 7, 2016 - FF - Graphic Mistake

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY (FF) is about graphical representations.  I don't remember much about high school math, but this GRAPH looks a bit off.

Maybe it's just that COMMON CORE stuff I've been hearing so much about.

Sept 30, 2016 - Friday Funny - Wine Pong

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY is an alternative to the Beer Pong that is now the rage at most football tailgate parties.

This game, Wine Pong, steps it up a bit.  It is most likely played on the Left Coast. 

Although, wine from a box is frowned upon at most west coast schools and in modern society, it is widely accepted at USC and Cal.

Sept 26, 2016 - PPM - Celebrity Anmesia

This week's PET PEEVE MONDAY (PPM) is about the people NOW supporting Hillary Clinton.

Stumping for Hillary Clinton, Katy Perry vows, “We can do better!” 

Odd considering she stumped for President Obama's re-election effort in 2012. SO, NOW, they can do better than the person who they endorsed 4 years ago. 

Is it a memory loss or convenient amnesia? 
How about just an apology and saying you were wrong? 
Any Regrets?

Sept 16, 2016 - Friday Funny - White House to Out House

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY happened when I'm trying to use the bathroom at the car dealership when Michelle Obama comes on the TV. She says, "It's almost time for Barack and I to leave the White House..." 

I hear a voice from the neighboring stall, "Thank God!!!" 

I usually try not to laugh when I pee but sometimes I cant help myself.

Sept. 9, 2016 - Friday Funny - My Enema is My Friend

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY is an admission that I loved the fact that technology today has auto correct and spellcheck.

Oh,  Weight.

Aug. 26, 2016 - Friday Funny - TRUE Rewards

You need a license to drive and fish but not to parent. How cool is that???

Aug. 19, 2016 - Friday Funny - Money Talks

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY is what happened as I was walking into a Cincinnati Reds game today.

I looked over at this old guy in a Dodger cap and heard his voice.  I said., "Hey Eddie!!" and sure enough it was 80's rocker Eddie Money.  

You just never know. GOOD TIMES!!!

July 1, 2016 - Friday Funny - Plane Humor

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY is the conversations between UPS pilots and their maintenance crews.  

After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form, called a "gripe sheet" which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems, document their repairs on the form, then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight.

Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humor. Here are actual maintenance complaints submitted by UPS pilots ("P") and solutions recorded ("S") by maintenance engineers:

P: Left inside main tire almost needs replacement.
S: Almost replaced left inside main tire.

P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.
S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.

P: Something loose in cockpit
S: Something tightened in cockpit

P: Dead bugs on windshield.
S: Live bugs on back-order.

P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 feet per minute descent
S: Cannot reproduce problem on ground.

P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
S: Evidence removed.

P: DME volume unbelievably loud.
S: DME volume set to more believable level.

P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.
S: That's what friction locks are for.

P: IFF inoperative in OFF mode.
S: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode.

P: Suspected crack in windshield.
S: Suspect you're right.

P: Number 3 engine missing.
S: Engine found on right wing after brief search.

P: Aircraft handles funny.
S: Aircraft warned to: straighten up, fly right, and be serious.

P: Target radar hums.
S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.

P: Mouse in cockpit.
S: Cat installed.

P: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer.
S: Took hammer away from midget

After 20+years in Customer Service, these interactions would have been a welcome relief.

June 14, 2016 - Distress-Full Situation

I was re-purposing a wood pallet as an American Flag for a patriotic yard display for Flag Day. 

After painting the flag, I accidentally mounted it on an A-frame upside down.  This is the international sign of “distress” which subconsciously probably describes my choices in the coming election.

I fixed my error and remounted the flag correctly.  It now stands proudly with some old Riverfront Stadium seats. 

Now if we could only correct the major political party nominees as easily.

June 6, 2016 - PPM - Graduation Gift Grabs

This week's PET PEEVE MONDAY (PPM) is High School Graduations.  Specifically, it's the Graduation Announcements.

Every year, I dread going to the mailbox to retrieve the seemingly endless supply of HS graduation announcements.  Some are legitimate.  They are the sons and daughters of close friends. I know of them and quite possibly remember their names.

Others come from long lost acquaintances who I didn't even know had children.  These are nothing more than a straight Graduation Gift Grab.  At least when you invited to a wedding, you bring a gift because you are getting a nice meal and possibly an open bar.

I've developed a "Gift Scale" that is indexed on the geographic proximity of the friend, the length of the friendship, and the frequency of our interactions.  Some make the gift cut.....others do not.

Either way, when asked to deliver some advice to new grads, I'm always reminded of the below:
Please contact me when you get a diploma from a college or a trade school or spend a few years in the Armed Services. I have a much more generous "Gift Scale" for real accomplishments.

May 20, 2016 - Friday Funny - Truncated Truck

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY is actually NOT that funny.

As a owner/driver of a 28 foot RV, this is my worst nightmare.

I once worked as the night auditor of a Howard Johnson motel just off off I-70 in Ohio. On two separate occasions an RV and a trucker struck our 12 foot high canopy.  Windows were shattered, buildings were damaged, alarms were sounded, insurance companies were contacted.

May 13, 2016 - Friday Funny - Preferential Treatment

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY is appropriate as Hillary Clinton is closing in on 2016 Democratic party nomination.  Ironically, she is also begging to TRUMP-et the Republicans "War on Women."  

I would like for everyone to remember this:

As they say a picture is worth 1000 words...or a few deleted emails.

May 6, 2016 - Friday Funny - Hertz, Not So Good.

Here is the summary of my recent interaction with Hertz Rental Car Company.

Trip to Los Angeles – Seinfeld Moment #1 – I tried to retrieve my reserved SUV from Hertz.

Hertz: Have you ever driven a SUV?  - ME: Yes, I own one in Ohio

Hertz: Have I ever driven a SUV in California?  ME: Yes, I lived here for 10 years, and drove them and owned them without incident.

Hertz: You understand traffic in Cincinnati and Los Angeles are different?  ME:  You don’t have my reserved SUV do you?

Hertz:  Would you like a full-size car with a 15 % discount and a full tank of gas?   ME:  So you can TAKE the reservation, but you can’t HOLD the reservation.  ANYONE can TAKE the reservation, but HOLDING the reservation is really the important part.

Hertz: Huh?  ME: Nevermind.  I bet customers would appreciate if you didn’t pee on them and tell them it is raining.

Hertz: (Smirk)  ME: I’m going to NEED ALL the insurance you can offer.

Apr.29, 2016 - Barry - One Last Time

I’m went to see Barry Manilow on his "ONE LAST TIME" tour tonight. Some thought it should have been titled, "One Time TOO Many." But it was a great show for a 72 year old entertainer. 

It was actually a great name for a tour given how many rockers have passed away recently. We hoped Barry would do a Prince tribute song like Bruce Springsteen, Beyoncé, and others had been doing in their concerts.

Who wouldn’t have paid good money to see Barry Manilow sing “Darling Nikki” or “Sexy M.F.”?

No worries. Barry still got a standing ovation from the audience, hip-replacements and all.

Apr. 25, 2016 - PPM - Socialism Defined

This week's PET PEEVE MONDAY (PPM) is Socialism. Nobody seems to understand the economic concept. Everyone likes the idea of "Free Stuff" until they realize it isn't FREE.

I don't know what is more ironic:

Bernie Sanders, the Socialist, laying off campaign workers. (I'm sure he will still pay them a living wage - he was actually paying some $11/hr not $15/hr)


Hillary Clinton saying that the the voices of sexual assault victims should not be silenced. (Broderick, Jones, etc. etc. etc.)

April 21, 2016 - Death of a Prince

Very sad about the sudden death of Prince. To me, he was more talented than Michael Jackson.

I only saw Prince once in concert. It was in spring of 1982 when he was on the way up. He played the Agora on High Street on THE Ohio State University campus. He was staying at the Holiday Inn on Lane in Columbus where I was the night auditor. 

His manager gave us back stage passes in exchange for keeping the hotel bar open past closing following his show. The funniest thing I remember was the Columbus police trying to decide whether or not to arrest Prince for indecent activities based on some of his antics on the stage. His stage act would be considered mild by today’s standards, but were most definitely over the line in 1982.

RIP Prince Rogers Nelson (June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016)

Well, Welcome to National Siblings Day!!!

That is me on the far left (the only time I will ever be on the far left.)

However, it does appear that I am cropped off to one end or another in every family photo.  Just Saying.

March 29, 2016 - Vietnam Veterans Day

Every March 29 is now considered National Vietnam Veteran's Day.

This honor and awareness is long overdue.  It's hard to believe that it took till 2012 until we started to recognize this important part of our national history.  The soldiers who fought and who may or may not have returned had NOTHING to do with the politics of the Vietnam War.  They only knew they were putting their lives in jeopardy for OUR Country.

Although, a fictional character from A Few Good Men, Colonel Jessup is how I have come to vbiew these Vietnam Heroes.  You want the Truth?

The American people can't handle the truth!!!

March 28, 2016 - PPM- Social (Media) Injustice

This week's PET PEEVE MONDAY (PPM) is the obvious double standard that now permeates Social Media.

If this was posted about Hillary Clinton there would be congressional inquiries.  If it were posted about Barrack Obama it would immediately be labeled a "Hate Crime."

I am by no means a Donald Trump supporter.  BUT can the media at least PRETEND to be non-biased?

March 25, 2016 - Friday Funny - A Few Yolks

Easter is this Sunday.  And while I have NO idea what the resurrection of Jesus Christ has to do with Easter Eggs, I thought this was funny.

I think even Kevin BACON would have a hard time connected the true meaning of Easter with chocolate bunnies and colored eggs.  And why do we need to hide the eggs anyway?

March 21, 2016 - PPM - UnFree Speech

This week's PET PEEVE MONDAY (PPM) is what has happened over the last month at Donald Trump rallies.  

I am NO Donald Trump supporter, however lately thugs and disrupters have stopped traffic to prevent Trump supporters from getting to his rallies.  Once the rallies have started these protesters regularly will rise up and begin yelling and disrupt Trump's speech.

Why is it that ONLY THEIR speech is free? Why is it OK for them prevent other's FREE SPEECH?

Yet, all the media can talk about is the VIOLENCE and DIVISIVENESS of the Trump rallies.  REALLY?  Who is causing the violence and divisiveness?

IF you don't agree with Trump or his message, FINE. Vote for someone else.  But why is OK for you to prevent others from their First Amendment rights?

March 18, 2016 - Friday Funny - America is Grate

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY finally makes me smile over the poll-tested Trump catch phrase:

  "Make America Great Again."

What is NOT funny is that Trump's marketing of himself as the next President has been reduced to a strategy of selling us new Tide, only in this case, he is "New Reagan."

Low information voters gave us Barrack Obama. I guess it's probably time for the pendulum to swing to a Republican.

March 14, 2016 - PPM - I'm Anti-Choice

This week's PET PEEVE MONDAY (PPM) is the pending Ohio election primary on March 15, 2016.

Never have I felt so disinterested and unenthused by the slate of Presidential candidates.  I've backed losers before.  I was a Fred Thompson fan in 2008.  I thought Mitt Romney was an obvious choice in 2012. (I still think America would like a "Mulligan" on that one.)

This year, I CANNOT get excited by ANY of the choices.  Is this really the best and brightest America has to offer?

If the candidates aren't pandering, they are attacking others on a sophomoric scale and usually about things they did as High School sophomores.  At this point, I would probably vote for the fictional Frank Underwood from House of Cards.  At least I know what I AM GETTING FOR MY VOTE.

I believe we can do MULCH better.

March 11, 2016 - Friday Funny - Feel The Bern

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY comes as Bernie Sanders has started to put a scare into Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination in the 2016 election.

Outside of a Federal indictment, Hillary will win the Dem nod.  However, I found the below picture INCREDIBLY funny and accurate.

What will Bernie redistribute after he runs out of OTHER people's money?

March 7, 2016 - PPM - No Country For Orange Men

This week's PET PEEVE MONDAY (PPM) is the continued retort from people who claim they will LEAVE the United States if their candidate does not win the election.  The exodus list grows daily should their villain, Donald Trump, win the election.

It's ironic that these same people said they would leave if GEORGE W. BUSH WON  -  yet they are still here.  No one is going to leave when SO much is provided for FREE.

My message is simple.  You lose any AND all credibility by these continued false proclamations. 

Actually, your threats of an USA departure, may in fact, make people want to vote AGAINST your candidate.  The thought of some non-contributing members to the program opting out is too good to ignore.  Just saying.

March 4, 2016 - Friday Funny - Free Dumb

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY is the thought process that some voters are taking this election cycle. 

 It sounds like a PET PEEVE MONDAY, however it too funny to even consider.

It's a wonder how people will pay for all the FREE STUFF.  No it's actually FUNNY.

Feb. 12, 2016 - Friday Funny - Congratulations?

I'm not sure what statement this makes about society.

Should people be happy that they closed the White Castle as a public service and possible health risk forcing people to eat at Chipotle?

Or should people be upset that their perfect woman who would agree to a wedding at a White Castle is no longer a single woman and off the market?

Feb. 5, 2016 - Friday Funny - UR In Trouble

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY is an advertisement in the paper.

Piss poor idea.

Jan. 29, 2016 - Friday Funny - Bye, Now.

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY is sad, but TRUE.  

However, based on recent headlines, I doubt that Kayne will get ANY sympathy. He's $53 Million in debt and may be forced to move if Donald Trump becomes President.  Oh yeah, he also dissed Taylor Swift TWICE.

Maybe the Kardashians and those who accompany them have had their path in life set once the Kardashian patriarch decided to defend the psychopath and killer, O.J. Simpson. 

You have to remember why the Kardashians are FAMOUS. (?)

Karma can be slow to deliver it's ultimate blow. Irony ANYONE?

Jan. 22, 2016 - Friday Funny- War on Intelligence

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY is the absolute dishonesty and disdain for facts.

It was wrong in 2012 and it is wrong in 2016.


Jan. 15- Friday Funny - They're Not Right

This week's FRIDAY FUNNY is the IRONY of school closures.

Jan. 1, 2016 - Bowl Game

THE Ohio State University 2015 football team under performed expectations. (sarcasm)

Apparently, EVERYONE expected the team to go undefeated.

It is not only unusual, but almost impossible given the expanded 12 game schedules, conference championship games, and parity in scholarships.

This year's team went 13-1 and TROUNCED Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl 44-28. OSU dominated the game  even though their best player, Joey Bosa, was wrongly ejected in the first quarter.

Unable to attend the National Championship game like I did in 2015 when the Buckeyes beat Oregon, I was relegated to hosting a bowl viewing party.

That said, it is always necessary to have some TV viewing rules:
