Yeah, I got this from a chain mail, but it’s the first one to make me laugh out loud in a few years, so here you go…
A Lawyer and a senior citizen are sitting next to each other on a long flight.
The lawyer is thinking that seniors are so dumb that he could get one over on them easily.
So, the lawyer asks if the senior would like to play . . . → Read More: How to make $490
I despise the entire idea of Toddlers & Tiaras. This, however, I can totally get behind…
How many plugs for Tom Hanks’ roles can you spot?
Here are the ones I caught (most were pretty obvious):
Bosom Buddies (Bosom Baby t-shirt) Turner & Hooch (“Don’t be a Hooch”) Big Forrest Gump Saving Private Ryan (“Earn it!”) Apollo 13
I love the spray bottle.
Tom Hanks continues to impress.

For those who are unaware, I have 2 daughters, ages 6 and almost-5 (4 and 11/12ths, she tells us repeatedly). Being the perfect, completely respectful children that they are, we never have to discipline them or anything. The love just oozes out the walls in this house.
I’m starting to wonder if there is some sublimation going on, though. Little things are leaking out. They sound completely innocent in delivery, but when you sit . . . → Read More: Our kids adore us
Facebook is a place where absolutely nothing of importance happens. But you do get to see some funny, or at least interesting, posts from time to time. Here are some of the better ones I’ve seen recently:
(That was actually from fellow Coalition of Awesomeness member Dan’s blog, but I saw it through a post on Facebook, so it counts.)
OK GO has some great videos. Easily some of the most inventive . . . → Read More: Found on Facebook
Today we’re having an installation of “What to do, What not to do” for percussionists.
What to do
Back in college I had the privilege of seeing a percussion group called Nexus perform. It was one of two moments in those years that I just had this goofy grin stuck on my face because the awesomeness just blew me away (the other was when the drummer from the Navy Jazz Band did his drum solo… . . . → Read More: Percussionists: Object lesson for today
No one has written a super-hero theme song yet that beats the one from the 60s Spider-man cartoon. Don’t get me wrong, there have been some great themes written, but Spider-man’s is the swinging-est.
Over the years, a few versions have been recorded, but this is probably my favorite update. And the dancing is actually pretty cool, too. I think these guys do a great job.
Then there’s this… yeah, the dancing sucks, but . . . → Read More: Spider-man dances (and so does The Flash)
I absolutely LOVE this story.
On Monday night, a fan at a Phillies game ran onto the field during the game. Not an unheard of event. This is the first time for this outcome, however…
The fan, wearing a baseball cap, red T-shirt and khaki shorts, hopped a fence and scurried around the outfield, eluding two security officers in the bottom of the eighth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals. One officer used a Taser . . . → Read More: Philadelphia: City of Brotherly Tasering
Okay, that may very well be the longest title I’ve ever written on this blog. New milestone! Woo hoo!
The Oatmeal, while not very old, has become an insanely popular site, and with good reason. It’s really funny.
I first saw it when I got a link on Facebook to How addicted to Facebook are you? and then How Long Could You Survive Chained to a Bunkbed with a Velociraptor?
Since then I’ve been pointed . . . → Read More: Semicolons: the only grammar related poster I’ve ever been tempted to buy
I know I’m going to get some hate mail, or at least some dirty looks, for putting this out there, but I’m just the messenger. Reality is what reality is.
Women worse at parking than men, study shows
Women are slower and less accurate at parking than men, according to a scientific study that confirms the suspicions of many male motorists.
Female drivers take an average of 20 seconds longer to park their cars but . . . → Read More: Stating the obvious: women can’t park
Okay, yeah, the day’s almost over, but you know how it is… things got away from me. The dog ate my homework. And then he did this:
So there you have it. Not just a dog on a skateboard… a dog purposefully riding a skateboard. There’s something very calming about that video.
Yeah, it’s been around a long time, but if you haven’t seen it before, it’s new to you…
