“MJM Ponders Life”

1. Why are so many people who are against war take it out on the soldiers…it's not as if the soldiers are for and/or endorse the war necessarily…they are just doing their job…which by the way is to protect us and this great country of ours…the war and the soldiers are not one in the same.

2. We have a zombie apocalypse on our hands…and it's coming from the big pharmaceutical companies… they make you believe that any ailment you suffer from can be cured by a patch, a pill or a cream…regardless of all the crazy side effects…they are turning people into mindless slaves who do their bidding…and make them lots of money.

3. When are people going to realize that there is no such thing as a government for the people…whether it be Democrat or Republican…it is obvious based on past experiences from numerous other Democrats and Republicans who have held office that there is nothing to gain for us common laypeople.

4. Bullying...is that word being taken too lightly nowadays...is it just kids being kids like back when we were in school...or were we bullied ourselves and our parents just sugar coated it…what’s really going on here?

5. In today’s day and age why does hate still exist…as a society do we really not have anything better to do…with all our own issues and faults do we really have the time, or right to hate on anyone else…it just doesn’t make any sense.

6. Way too many people getting offended by one thing or another for no good reason…we spend more time trying to find ways to avoid offending these overly sensitive and/or self-important people then we do trying to manage the national deficit in this country.

7. Why are so many obvious murderers going free nowadays…what is wrong with our justice system…O.J. Simpson was the big name a few years back and now Casey Anthony…what the crap is going on here.

8. Why are people who receive government benefits not drug tested and/or have a background check done on them…anyone who applies for a job has to go through it…so why not these people…I’m not hating on people who truly need these benefits…I just think it needs to be better regulated.

9. Why isn’t marijuana legal…alcohol and cigarettes are…nuff said?

10. Those antismoking commercials are gross…disturbing…and should only be shown to smokers and people who are considering it…us nonsmokers…who know better than to smoke…shouldn’t have to endure that sickness. Cigarettes should come in case where every time the smoker pulls out a cigarette it would play one of those commercials…we know they have the technology to pull it off.

11. Disney channel…what the crap happened?! Back in the day they aired cartoons and shows that were wholesome and kid friendly…now however, they air shows that make Melrose Place seem tame. I was watching it the other day with my two young girls…we were watching a show called “Shake it Up”…and I couldn’t believe how they market these young girls…what type of message are they sending to the kids. I’m not trying to sound like an old fogey…but I mean come on…why does everything have to be risqué?

“Twenty Reasons You Know You're No Longer in the North”

I couldn't believe how vastly different our worlds were, and no I'm not talking about one continent to another, but the Northern half of the United States to the Southern half. For a Northern boy, who was born and raised in New Jersey and spent the majority of his life up that way, coming to the South was a little bit of a culture shock. Here is a list of twenty things that I come across during my time here, that cemented the fact to me, that I was no longer in the North.

20. Eating parts of a pig that shouldn't been eaten, unless of course they are in the form of a hot dog...like snouts, feet and testicles.

19. Sweet tea and barbecue.

18. Expressions like howdy, hell yeah, yee haw, y'all...and of course git-r-done.

17. Jean jackets and John Deere hats.

16. Everyone owns either a pickup truck or a riding lawn mower.

15. Religious paraphernalia everywhere you go.

14. Names like Cletus, Billy Bob and Jojo...and that's just the women's names.

13. Haven't met a Southerner who wasn't for war.

12. Hunting and hanging animal heads all over your home like you really did something special...if you actually killed Yogi with your bare hands, then I would be impressed, until then stop bragging and acting like you accomplished some amazing feat.

11. They never met a Western movie they didn't like...well that is except for Brokeback Mountain...cowboys are supposed to be riding bulls and horses...not each other.


9. Truck tires so big, when they pull in front of the sun it's like a lunar eclipse.

8. Going to Walmart for a good time.

7. Fireworks...I've never saw people get so excited about things blowing up.

6. Chewing tobacco and spitting it in bottles and cups.

5. Fake testicles hanging from the back of a car/truck bumper.

4. Mullet and rat tail hairstyles.

3. Everyone carries a weapon, is against abortion, hates gays and loves to eat...and they really want to make sure that you agree with all their beliefs...at all costs.

2. No shoes, no shirt, no service means absolutely nothing in the South.

1. People fly the Confederate flag (aka Rebel flag) proudly, as if they really won the Civil War...and when asked why, they say for heritage. That's like your kid getting an "F" on a school paper and you hanging it proudly on the fridge for all to see.

“Spreading Hate is Not the Loving Thing to do”

People are nuts, I know I’m not really telling you anything you don’t already know, but it just amazes me just how nuts they actually are, especially when it comes to the whole gay issue. When I hear things like, “I don’t mind gay people as long as they don’t try anything” and/or “I’m afraid to leave my children with him/her because they’re gay” I just cringe, and honestly feel ashamed to be part of the human race. I also don’t get the whole ”God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve” nonsense, because God also made fruits and vegetables, not burgers and fries…so sit your fat ass down.

My older brother is gay and I myself am as straight as an arrow, I only tell you this because my ex used to be worried that “gay” ran in the family and that one day I would wake up gay and want to be with a man and leave her. I did eventually leave her, obviously or she wouldn’t be my ex, but it had nothing to do with me craving some man meat, honestly it was because she was insane.

My next example of an ignorant homophobic whack job is my girlfriend’s mother, who we like to refer to as the redneck Sanford and Son, mainly because her house looks like a redneck junkyard. Now she has a gay friend, who one night she was going out with to get something to eat, and with me being the kind of person I am I figured I would mess with her a little bit. I told her to be careful, not to get too close to her "gay" friend because she could catch the gay, before she knew it should be have strong cravings for tuna. Me thinking she would know I was joking and just laugh it off, but to my surprise she didn’t, she actually believed me and was now scared to meet up with her friend.

Now the funny thing is, that both these people (my ex and my girlfriend's mother) claim to be Christians, amd they judge more people than Judy, and condemn people to hell as if they were Oprah giving away cars…you’re going to hell…and you’re going to hell…everyone is going to hell. Now please know, that I am not hating on Christians because it’s not Christians who hate gays, it’s narrow minded ignorant people who are trying to deflect the judgment from themselves, trying to keep the skeletons in their closet hidden.

I myself am a straight Christian man and do my best to love as God would want me to. We are not here to judge and/or condemn, we are here to live our lives as an example of what it means to have God in our hearts and hopefully when all is said and done, make the world a better place.

I know fear keeps people from feeling comfortable and uneasy but don't let fear become hate, talk to people who are gay and find out why they feel the way they do. How can someone who is not gay themselves tell you if people are born that way or not, that would be like me trying to tell you how it feels to be a woman, it's just not possible and doesn't make any sense. Don't be ignorant, be educated and make a well-informed opinion, and afterwards if you still don't agree with it that's fine, from that point forward just live and let live. You don't have to agree with it; just don't try to destroy it because I'm sure there are many things people could find about your life they don't agree with too.

If you ask me the whole "sanctity of marriage" argument is a bunch of nonsense too. If you haven't realized it yet, straight couples aren't really keeping marriage all that sanctified. We need to focus on ourselves first, work to make us the best we can possibly be before we go trying to tell others how to live their lives. If you're room is a mess it would be hypocritical to try to tell others to clean up theirs without cleaning up yours first. They don’t keep their tools in your toolshed, so keep your clothes out of their closets.

As far as Chick-fil-a is concerned I'm not against Dan Cathy speaking his mind, he's entitled to believe as he feels fit. I just think if he really wanted to preach about family values and love he would have come forward to tell his supporters not to hold a Chick-fil-a appreciation day to further fan the flames of hate. If you're going to speak on love, go all out, if you're only going to do the job halfway then just keep your mouth closed because we already have way too much of that in this world.

I don't believe God makes mistakes, I think in the beginning he did want marriage to be between one man and one woman to ultimately populate the Earth but after seeing the end result and how corrupt people have become he decided to send in the gays. No more unwanted children born into this world, and to make things even better, they are willing to take care of the children that are in need of love and companionship from others. Ask a child who is hurting for a hug if he/she cares what sex the people are who give it to them, two men and/or two women are better than nobody at all.

Teach your kids love and tolerance and hopefully one day in the future this world would be a better place for all of us. Stop making people feel bad for what they are, or what they’re not, just work on making yourself the best person you can be. Always remember, FAGS is an acronym for “Fabulous and Gorgeous Superstars”.

This message isn't about being pro-gay, that's your business, it's about being anti-hate. It's not what God you follow (or don't), it's not your sexual preference and it's not how you look that makes you evil it's what is in your heart.

This has been a Mele minute...one to grow on.

"My Soapbox Rant"


Why do they want to be anonymous when they are getting help, but when they are getting their drunk on, they are as loud and obnoxious as can be. One would think they would be happy to let the world know they are getting help, that's a good thing, and get their drunk on in private, because it's embarrassing...at least I know I would.

Breaking The Law...

I am not one to break the law, not just because I'm a total wuss, but because I'm scared to go jail/prison. I'm as soft as Charmin...and just as squeezable too. I would be holding onto some one's belt loop and calling them daddy in no time, being sold for cigarettes and getting rammed in the kiester on a regular basis.

Common Sense...

Why do they call it common sense when in all reality, it's not all that common. Most people nowadays are complete idiots...I'm not hating, I'm just saying. Try talking to a random stranger on the street and see how the conversation goes.

Bumper Stickers...

Do these people really believe other motorist care about their beliefs and what they have to say? How I feel about abortion isn't going to change because the nitwit on the road in front of me driving the beat up jalopy with a personalized license plate which reads "Ass Man" is for or against it.

Religious Fanatics...

These screwballs drive me nuts, religion is supposed to be about peace and love, but these freaks are all about judgment and damnation. The people passing the most judgment are the people with the most skeletons in their closet, trying to deflect. It doesn't matter what God you follow, there are some of these people in every sect. The crazy thing about it, is there are atheists that are this way too...so much for being smarted than everyone else.

Political People...

First things first, there is no such thing as an honest politician who is for the people, Democrat or Republican it doesn't matter, they all have their own agenda...and trust me, we are not part of it. The bottom line is it comes down to the lesser of the two evils when voting, who makes you less sick.


Have you tried watching some of these newer cartoons, they are all based on a card game or a bad acid trip, this stuff is crazy. Man how I miss the cartoons from the eighties...they were awesome.


Now I'm not talking about marijuana here, I'm talking about all the other crap people are putting into their bodies...especially the man-made crap. Are you people nuts, what the poop is going on in your head that makes you think it would be a good idea to smoke and/or ingest some of this garbage. Meth, spice, bath salts...really! If I want to take a trip without leaving the house, I'll watch the Travel channel.

Reality TV...

Why do people watch this crap...do they really believe it's reality? It you want to see true reality, just wake up. If we were to really film "reality" it would be pretty boring and would be canceled after just a couple of episodes...trust me.

Disciplining Children...

These little bastards scare me...they're all crazy. Whose bright idea was it to count when a kid does something wrong, who in their right mind thought this would be a good idea. I say bring back the wooden spoons and rubber slippers, let parents beat some common sense and manners into these brats. I'm not saying beat them like a piñata, but a firm smack on the backside speaks volumes...trust me.

Credit Bureaus...

Companies should not be able to pull your credit unless you're applying for some sort of lending/credit product. Why does a potential employer and/or insurance company need to know what's on my credit, you're not giving me anything without something in return, I'm either paying for it and/or working for it...so if I don't do what I'm supposed to do then I get fired and/or cancelled...you're not out anything but time. Not everyone with bad credit is a deadbeat and/or crook...it just means they fell on some hard times.

If a company is able to post negative information on your credit report, then they should also have to post the positive...you shouldn't be allowed to do one without the other.

Stop worrying about whether or not the wealthy need to pay more or less taxes, trust me it doesn't affect us people on the bottom of the totem pole one bit either way...worry about the poor and middle class struggling just to survive and all the unnecessary hoops they have to jump through just to make it in this world today.

Ignorant Republicans...

(Disclaimer...I don't have a problem with Republicans...just ignorant people. I'm sure if a Republican won the election this section would be titled "Ignorant Democrats".)

Just for the record...not all Democrats/Independents are unhealthy, uneducated and living off the government. I can't tell you how many times after Obama won the election I've read/heard people bashing the Democrats/Independents because they thought Obama was the better man for the job and voted for him. One such person I heard bashing him didn't even vote...what nerve.

I know it sucks that it wasn't your candidate who won...but what did your parents teach you about being a poor sport when you were younger...and now that we know who's going to be occupying the white house for the next four years, we (Democrats and Republicans) need to put aside our differences and work together to make this great country of ours shine.

Trust me, I would be saying this even if Romney won...it's time to grow up and stop acting like little immature brats...besides, with Obama winning it gives Rush Limbaugh at least four more years of bashing Democrats/Independents material...so you're welcome.

Speaking of ignorant people...

People Threatening to Leave the Country and/or Secede from the United States as a Whole Because Obama Won the Election...

My response to them...here's your hat what's your hurry. These people really think highly of themselves, like we as a country, or individuals for that matter are really going to miss them if they picked up and left...just remember though, the grass isn't always greener on the other side. These people remind me of the kids we would play with when we were younger, the kind that if they didn't get what they wanted would take their ball and go home...come on people, grow up.

Sue-Happy People...

Anyone who sues over every little thing should get beat with a wiffleball bat. If your life is really that bad where you are constantly put in situations that warrant suing...then you are either in an ACME cartoon or one of the unluckiest people around and probably should never leave your house again...just saying. We should have the option to sue the people that are suing like crazy, because let's be honest here, in the long run it's only hurting us.

Bailout Plan...

I'm all in favor of bailing out select companies with the purpose of trying to keep people working and keeping goods manufactured here in America, but what I don't understand is bailing out all the big banks that caused most of the problems in the first place. Why not bail out the people hurt most by all this, the poor and middle class...and no I'm not talking about giving them all free money and/or government assistance, so put away your pitchforks and torches Republicans.

In my opinion, what they should have done is waived, deferred and/or lowered interest rates, over the limit fees and other various charges assessed to credit cards to a reasonable amount for an adequate amount of time, which would allow people to catch up on payments without ending up defaulting...even if they were unemployed.

Also offer some kind of credit counseling and reasonable repayment options for delinquent accounts so people who are struggling can get back on their feet without ruining their credit and/or ultimately filing for bankruptcy.

Hateful People...

Why do we still have hate, I mean I know why we do, but I just don't get it. This is such an easy fix, it just doesn't make sense to me that in today's day and age there are people who still go around hating on others for something they are not...or to be more forward, something they are fearful of. Live and let live people, erase the hate from your heart and mind and start loving others. We really, really need to give peace a chance.

Or the Terrorists Win, Help Save the Economy and Other Stupid Sayings Used to Get Us to Spend Money...

All I can say about this one...is stop being sheep. Involve yourself in the world, educate yourself and don't just take what is spoon fed to you and believe it to be truth, find out what's really going on first hand and do something about it to better the situation and yourself.


Don't you just love when people wrong you, then they apologize and expect everything to be alright again...and even have to nerve to get mad at you if you don't just let things go. I got news for you people; it's not up to you when people are ready to forgive you for what you did to wrong them...just because you're ready to be forgiven doesn't mean they are ready to forgive. Make amends, and then allow the person you've wronged to respond in their time, and when they're ready, about how they feel about things.

OK, time for me to get off my soapbox and to stop bothering you good people with all my nonsense.

“To Pee, or Not to Pee, That is the Question”

One of my biggest pet peeves (if you will) is when I wake up in the middle of the night from a sound sleep and have to hit the head.

Now of course when I say “hit the head” I don’t mean literally, because that would really hurt, but rather I mean I have to take a pee pee.

I’m lying there all comfortable like and as snug as a bug in a rug when nature calls, and it doesn’t call quietly either, it calls like one of those annoying bill collectors, and to make matters worse it’s calling collect.

So my dilemma is, do I get up and use the potty then have to climb back into bed and try to get comfortable again, or do I just stay there and risk letting the flood gets open?

As I’m trying to make my decision I start to fall back to sleep, in my head the song Don’t Worry Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin is playing, except it’s called “Don’t worry pee happy” and I feel myself letting go…if you know what I mean.

Thankfully, I wake up right before I’m about to christen the bed sheets with my not so holy water.

I already know how my girlfriend feels about me "shitting" on her, so I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t like me peeing on her either, and when I say pee on her I don’t mean in the R. Kelly way so get your mind out of the gutter.

If I do happen to “spring a leak” in the bed I’ll have to wash all the bedding, my clothes and the mattress, all the time while my girlfriend is bitching me out, not really my idea of a good time.

On top of that, have you ever tried to hang a mattress on a clothesline to dry, it is not easy?

I thought about going the way of “Lisa Nowak”, that crazy NASA astronaut who likes to wear diapers on road trips when she’s late for a killing, and pick up some Depends for myself to sleep in.

That way I could sleep through the night, let loose if I need to and wake up to clean (and dry) bed, and a bitch free girlfriend.

I even thought about using a catheter, but then I remember how much of a wuss I am and how I whine when I’m sick, so I decided against it.

I don’t know, what is a man to do I tell you, life is tough.

I guess my only real option is to sleep right on the toilet itself, that way I don’t have to worry about anything, well except maybe for a sore neck and a ring around my ass from a toilet seat.

This blog is dedicated to my friend Sarah over at "SadderButWiserGirl”, not because she wets the bed or anything, but just because she steered me in the right direction.

“Car Insurance...a Necessary Evil”

Buying car insurance...what a joke…an evil cruel joke.

I can't believe the questions these companies ask...and the fact that they are legally allowed to ask them is even more absurd and mind numbing. What difference does it make what my credit looks like, whether or not I'm singled and/or married, or even if I'm in school or not...you're not dating me, you're just insuring me...I really felt as if I was filling out an application for one of those online dating sites instead of purchasing car insurance.

I can't believe how much this crap costs...some of these companies wanted upwards of five hundred dollars a month to insure me...now I know Flo has to get her hair and makeup done, the gecko has to eat and State Farm needs the money to fund their anti-internet campaign (bonjour) but this is ridiculous. I say can the caveman...fire Flo...step on the gecko...and the general needs to be court-martialed...I would rather see stick figures selling the insurance and the monthly premiums drastically drop, rather than have all these flashy, funny and clever sales pitches.

Also, why can't I get my money back if I don't have any accidents while I'm insured with your company, okay maybe not all of it back, but at least half...I don't think that's asking too much. It's not like they have to do anything for my money, unless of course I have a claim, so realistically I'm just paying them in case something happens. This is like when mob takes money from small businesses to "protect" them, so I guess what I'm saying is insurance companies are the modern day mafia.

God forbid you do have to file a claim...even after paying them all that money...they treat you like as if you were their child who they walked out on years ago, and now you've come back looking for the support and love that's owed to you....they are basically deadbeat dads...and I don't know about you, but I think these bastards should be paying child support.

Car insurance companies...and necessary evil we can't avoid...unfortunately we are at their mercy and we can do nothing about it...we just have to grin and bear it.

“Making the Best of a Shitty Situation”

This story is not for the easily offended, but for the easily amused, so if you have a good sense of humor and don’t get easily offended by bad words and a little bit of “toilet” humor then sit right back and enjoy the show.

Now if you happen to be one of those tight-ass individuals who takes everything seriously, and who is afraid to crack a smile, then you may want to move along because there is nothing here for you to see.

This is an actual conversation I had with my girlfriend the other night, believe it or not this is what passes for normal conversation in our house, and no, our house is not the psychiatric ward at Bellevue…but in all honesty it’s not far from it.

Before I get to the conversation, I have to let you know what lead up to it so you can better understand what was going on, and so that you can know that we aren’t totally out of our minds.

My stomach was hurting, for reasons I don’t know, but it was hurting, and hurting bad.

It kind of felt like someone dropped kicked me in my breadbasket, with cleats on, and that “someone” just happened to be of the larger variety, if they were a candy bar they would be the king size…if you catch my drift.

As a result of this pain I had to keep running to the bathroom, and a couple of times I just barely made it.

Sometimes it felt as if I was running a relay race, but instead of being handed a baton, I was handed a fresh new roll of toilet paper, 2 ply of course because I wouldn’t have it any other way.

There was a few times during my shitscapades where I almost filled my Batman underroos with some warm chocolate corn pudding, not a nice feeling at all, as I’m sure you can imagine.

As soon as I sat down on the pot my ass would fire off a vicious shot, one that sounded like a canon going off, and if anything just happened to be in the way of the blast, all I can about that, is may God have mercy on your soul.

When all was said and done it looked as if I blow up one of those M&M guys in the toilet, a candy coated crime scene…call in CSI: Mars!

There were chocolate and peanut chunks everywhere, and it definitely smelt as if killed something too, sorry Yellow or Red, whoever it was who made the sacrifice.

After a while it hurt to sit down.

I was experiencing some serious fire in the hole; it felt as if someone shoved a lit candle up my ass, and twisted it like a screwdriver.

As the evening went on my anus started getting worn out, it was hanging out my backside like Snuffleupagus’ trunk, and it was just as sad.

It eventually came to be bed time, and I wasn’t really sure what to expect considering how my evening was going.

I warned my girlfriend before getting into bed that I may just “shit” on her during the night, but if I did it wasn’t my fault and couldn’t be held accountable, it was something that was completely outside of my control. 

She of course freaked out, you know how chicks are, and said, “If I shit on her it will be the last time we sleep together”!

I proceeded to tell her that if I did indeed shit on her it wouldn’t have been on purpose, I had no way to control my ass muscles while I was sleeping, so something may just shoot out.

She didn’t really care for that explanation either and told me, “To ask my friends if they would like to be shit on, and how would they feel if they were”.

My response was, “I don’t really know, maybe something of them are freaky like that and would enjoy it, but trust me, if I did happen to shit on you it wouldn’t be of a sexual nature”.

As you could expect that didn’t really go over all that well with her either, so needless to say she sent me out on to the couch, where if I did bust ass in my sleep there would be no innocent causalities.

I eventually fell asleep, and thankfully no one was shit on, so we continue to sleep together…at least for now.

“Kardashian, Honey Boo Boo Child, Lohan, etc.”

This isn’t some sort of secret code…you do not need a secret decoder ring to read this…this is a list of people who I can’t believe we are talking about…who we are keeping in the public eye…who we are making feel more important than they really are.

Now of course this is just a partial list, a lot more names belong on it…but for the sake of not writing a blog as thick as a phonebook…and giving these nobodies more attention than they deserve... I’ve decided to go with the condensed version.

Why do we care about these people…are our lives that mundane and meaningless that we spend our time and energy on this garbage. As a society…do we really not have anything better to do…with all that is happening in the world nowadays...I think we all know the answer to that one.

You know when a kid acts up…makes a scene…you’re told to ignore them and sooner or later they’ll stop because they’re just looking for attention…well that’s the same with these fools. Stop paying attention to them…stop feeding the fire…focus your attention on things that really matter and not this trivial nonsense.

So the next time you’re in line at the grocery store…and you see one of those supermarket tabloids on the shelf…leave it there…use the money you would have wasted on that trash and donate it or better yet, give it to the homeless person sitting on the street corner.

The next time you see TMZ or one of those other “entertainment” news programs on the TV…change the channel…maybe to something more educational like PBS…I mean for Gosh darn sakes Sesame Street is fighting to stay on the air while droves of mindless sheep are flocking to their televisions to keep up with the Kardashians…this just makes no sense to me.   

Come on people…this really shouldn’t even be an issue…smarten up…stop being a puppet…take back control of your own strings and tell the puppet master to go fly a kite… and let’s make this world a better place.

So will you be able to resist the temptation…will you be able to forget the junk and direct your attention on more pressing and important issues… enquiring minds want to know…like me!

“Dysfunctional Dictionary Volume 1”


When someone starts talking a lot of crap you tell them to constipate, which basically means shut the hole in your face.

I almost got arrested when I told the cop who pulled me over to constipate, after he started asking me if I knew how fast I was going...I told him obviously not fast enough because he still caught me.

“Jalopy /Hooptie”
An old, beat up car that is falling apart and normally held together by
duct tape, plastic bags and bungee cords...other noticeable signs would be the
muffler dragging on the ground, rust throughout and/or a make shift antenna made from
a wire coat hanger.

My family was so attached to their Jalopy/Hooptie that they never got
rid of them; instead they put them on cinder blocks and kept them in
the front yard of our house...the white-trash version of garden gnomes.

"Robin' Hood"

A hood that robs from anyone and gives to the liquor store and/or local drug dealer.

My family was full of Robin' Hoods! They would wait until we were sleeping or out of the house then steal our money so they could go get their buzz on.

"Fathers Day"

A day where you honor the many fathers in your life...that is if you can find them. Around our neck of the woods this day is called fathers day...not father's day...for obvious reasons.

Fathers day was always a nightmare at my house, we never knew if we should break the bank and buy something for all four of our fathers, or if we should just pick our favorite.

"Happy Hour"

When you're broke and trying to get your drunk on, you search the
house for anything containing alcohol and you drink it down.

When I was younger I used to hate happy hour at my house, my uncles
would be in the bathroom for an hour or so, then come out smelling
really good and with really fresh breathe and drunk off their butts.
Come to find out they drank all the mouth wash, aftershave and night
time cold medicine. They would always tell me that those products weren't meant to drink, then why did they come with shot glasses!

"Alcoholics Anonymous"

A meeting for alcoholics where they come together and discuss their problems and try to figure out why they're an alcoholic. They receive support and guidance from others, who try to help them overcome this addiction (or as some call it a disease). These are the same people who weren't too worried about being anonymous when they're down at the local bar screaming and yelling and causing a ruckus. Why is it you can act the fool in public, but need to be anonymous when you're trying to get help...one would think it would be the other way around?

My druncles and alcoholaunts would go to their alcoholics’ anonymous meetings to satisfy their probation officers requirments, and then on the way home they would stop at the bar and get their drunk on.

"Repo Man"

Kind of like Santa Clause for poor people, except he comes all year round and takes your stuff instead of leaving you presents.

We saw the repo man more times than we saw Santa Clause growing up, so we would leave him milk and cookies.

"Brown Bagging"

Concealing an alcoholic beverage in a brown paper bag, with the delusion that nobody knows what you're drinking.

My druncle, a brown bagger when it came to lunch, however his didn't consist of a sandwich, dessert and a juice box.

“Fire In The Hole”

Basically feeling as if you’re pooping lava!

I always have regrets after eating spicy food, because after is all said and done I feel like I got butt banged by a lit candle. I once had fire in the hole so bad that I took a frozen tampon and stuck it up my hole.

“Chew & Screw aka Eat’em & Beat’em”

Going to a restaurant, ordering food, eating it and then not having any money to pay for it. After the meal, and when the bill comes, you make a mad dash for the door with the hopes of not getting caught.

My druncles were the kings of the chew & screw. Most of the time their bail was more than their meal, so I don't really get it, but I guess in their minds, if they spent their money on food they wouldn't have any left for alcohol.


An acronym for Fictional Relationships with Inanimate Electronic Nonhuman Devices... basically anyone whose only friends are made up of people they have never met in person and only know and interact with them through some sort of electronic means.

Power outages are very lonely times when all the people you know are F.R.I.E.N.D.s...it’s sad to know that the hand shake and smile has been replaced by the words “online now” or "thumbs up".

“Basketball Check”

A check you write when you have no funds in your bank account and the ultimate outcome is it bouncing like a basketball. Picture it, the check (basketball) being passed to the payee (dribbled) and coming back to you with an extra fee (penalty).

My family wrote many basketball checks during my childhood, with the hopes that it would buy us just a little more time with our utilities, rent and just about any other bill before they were shutoff and/or we started being hounded by mr. bill collector. Who the H E double hockey sticks wants to cook Ramen Noodles with a candle!

"European American"

Basically, another word for white, cracker, etc..

All the other races have cool descriptions like African American, Native American and so on and so fourth...so why can't us white people have a cool description too? When I fill out an application and it asks race, I always check other and write in European American. I want to know what it feels like to be a minority without going through all hate crimes, job rejections and police profiling!

"Scamsel In Distress"

A female who acts helpless whenever a male is around...fooling him into doing her bidding. Basically reverse fishing, using the "seafood" as the bait to catch the "worm"!

I have a "friend" who always gets suckered in to the scamsel in distress scam, I....errr oops I mean he is always doing things for all these woman with the hopes of getting some super freak action later...but he never does...how sad.
