Imagine a band composed entirely of ukeleles and a guitar or two. Scared yet? Now imagine that band performing rock songs. I mean hard rock songs, songs like "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Other more soulful tunes like the "Theme from Shaft" and the catchy theme from "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" are performed also. This is really scary kids, I'm not kidding this time. Actually, I found the Shaft one kinda funky and completely hilarious at the same time. Here's a select few and I'm giving it serious consideration for my next RB birthday card.

You're right... I've got goosebumps.

Awesome, though -- I say, happy b-day, and go for it!!!

Did you get the feeling, however, that the singer doesn't know what a libido is?

Ha! Maybe not but he's a bad mother...

Sure... he's a sex machine to all the chicks -- he just doesn't know why.

Christmas Post #4: I Want A Piece Of Uranus

A former boss of mine once said something similar to me but not in those exact words. This site claims to be selling the planet Uranus. The text is presented very tongue in cheek but they do appear to be actually selling stuff; bumper stickers and mousepads that claim "I own Uranus". Go »

Al Jolsen Meets The Handmaid's Tale

Brenda went to a local clothing store which I refuse to name so as not to give them any free advertising. I'm a little pissed at them right now. She bought Lauren some new clothes for school including a new pair of jeans for $15.00. Go »


It's too late now but I should have taken and posted a picture of my quaint (translation: small) front yard. Brenda and I (translation: Brenda) decided that in order to sell our house at a more attractive price, it should look more attractive to potential buyers. Makes sense, I guess. Go »

Punched In The Nose With A Stinky Fist

The complete culinary compilation of Steve, Don't Eat It! at My reading was interrupted by a need for defibrillation - laughed so hard my heart stopped. Go »

All Aboard The Idiot Train

I swear that lately, I feel like the proverbial snowball that inexorably turns into an avalanche. Yesterday, I was unloading the van of the last of the grass needed to complete the front yard landscaping. Only 170 square feet so it wouldn't take long. Go »

Christmas Post #8: Political Pun Waiting To Happen

Very obvious Hillary pun that still amused me. Hillary nutcracker in action. Check out this site for a lot of clever gifts although you'll have to wade through a lot of truly idiotic stuff as well. Go »
