Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • When did Dennis Miller turn into an angry old man?
  • Anybody else have weird audio issues with Cowboy game on NBC last Sunday night? It sounded like the crowd was drowning out the announcers.
  • I like the Cowboys playing on Sunday night. Waiting until Monday, not so much.
  • The right wing is complaining about all the Obama "Czars" but the first one I ever heard of was the "Drug Czar" under Ronald Reagan.
  • Uh. Oh. I just did one of those "Oh, yeah? What about you!" arguments, didn't I?
  • I haven't had a home printer in three or four years. With cell phones doing what they do, anything I need I simply email to myself and look at it later.
  • Richie Whitt of the Dallas Observer suggested that Kayne West interrupting Taylor Swift at the VMAs to praise Beyonce's video was all pre-planned by West, Swift, and Beyonce. You know, I don't rule that out. At all.
  • Got a few emails yesterday alerting me to a Tyler teacher stabbed to death by a student.
  • The anti-big government folks have been complaining about how detailed the census questions are this year. That's why it's so disturbing that a census worker in rural Kentucky has been found hanged with "Fed" written on his chest. Good lord.
  • Hot Sports Prediction: Clemson beats TCU this weekend.
  • Viral Video Yesterday: A guy at Texas A&M throws a basketball off the upper level at Kyle Field and through a basketball goal. Fake? Everyone is split on it. It could be done by first throwing the ball and see where it lands, move a goal to that spot, and then try again until you pull it off.
  • I'm 100% certain that the opening of Fox 4 News was different last night: Steve Eagar opened the show with the normal teases but in a very dramatic hushed tone.
  • In case you think your day is pretty tough, just remind yourself there's some Indonesian woman that just gave birth to a 19 pound baby.
  • I blew by Glee last night and saw a high school football scene. They had a #34 on an offensive lineman. I was out.
  • Oh, and if you've never seen Glee, all you need to know is that a football team, on the last play of the game with the play clock running, can break into a full dance rendition to Beyonce's "Put A Ring On It" and then still have time to throw a touchdown pass. Yep.

Reagan - One Czar
Obama - Thirty-seven Czars

Moammar Gadhafi wants President Obama to be the "President forever", according to his U.N. speech.

I think Lawrence Eagleberger hit the nail on the head about President Obama and his administration, "As bad as I hate to say it,the Obama administration is like amateur hour in Washington".

The Kentucky census taker with a known history of drug use was probably involved in something other than just going door to door to take the census. Unless, he was wearing an ACRON tee shirt, he was probably knocking on door to a meth lab! Everything can't be blamed on the right wing.

Looks like she's about to tip over......I don't know what peeps find attractive about not being able to see your feet cause you got 10 pounds of plastic in the way....geeze!

Glee = EPIC FAIL for men. Well, real men anyway

"it's so disturbing that a census worker in rural Kentucky has been found hanged with "Fed" written on his chest."

Cue the song Copperhead Road by Steve Earle.

8:39 I have implants and trust me that's WAY more than 10 lbs!

If you can get past Gi-NOT NORM-ous Boobs, the girl in the back right has a great bag....wish I knew where she got it!

1. Re: the Random Girls.
Those young ladies belong on the bow of a large sailing ship. That profile is just not natural in flesh & blood.
2. Re: the Indonesian mother.
19 pound baby? Ouch! This is why women are tougher than men. And always will be.
3. Re: the murdered census worker.
If it proves to be what it is postulated to be (murder), watch for someone on the airwaves to rationalize the taking of the worker's life. Some people today just scare the hell out of me.

Barry,

I am shocked you didn't mention Fiona's outfit this morning.

RPM said...

C'mon Barry, it's fiction. You have to suspend reality and just enjoy the show. Like the quarterback did when his girlfriend that he's never slept with turned up preggers with his baby.

Just go with it.

GO WILDCATS..!! Fiona did look some kinda fine this am. BG u r a da !

A nineteen pound baby? That's almost as interesting as the woman who is carrying two fetuses (NOT) twins. They were conceived two weeks apart according to the sonograms.

Besides being rare, that is really a danger to the second baby.

the census taker was a nigger trying to get the white chick to go to bed with him.

The gal in green is totally out of proportion. I guess you could say she's d-disfigured

It's a wonder the rural Kentucky census worker didn't have the word "revenooer" scrawled on his chest. Maybe the slow economy has caused even the anti-government types to tighten their belts and figure out how to use less ink or whatever it was they used to write that.

Dennis Miller - an angry old man? No disputing that, but -Hello...pot? Meet...kettle.
I realize he's a little older than you, but can you see that your entire blog is a warm-up to angry oldman-ism?
And the random pics, plus the pick-me-ups, while I'm not complaining, just scream "middle-age crazy!"

This blog is the virtual equivalent of a gaggle of old men gathering every morning at the DQ (see the connection?) to cuss/discuss current events. Same time tomorrow?

As to the basketball throw--I can't even see if the basketball actually goes through the hoop.

I agree with someone above that the one lady appears to be enhanced via photoshop. However, I've seen her on sportsbybrooks.com and she doesn't require any touch ups! BTW, what's with all the haters? Sure she's top heavy, but that's just more of her to love!

NBC Is a HORRIBLE Channel for Sports... The Crowd ALWAYS Drowns Out The Announcers... It Wasn't Just During the Cowboys Game...

Clemson will NOT Beat TCU!!! Sorry Barry!!!

Geez, 9:00 AM, you need to educate yourself. That's just wrong.

You are obnoxious and disguisting. Time to pull your head out of the sand and move on in a more positive direction! Hope you're not teaching your children (if any) your simple mindedness.

I had heard Kenye's VMA outburst was a set up. I can't imagine someone wanting that kind of attention but I guess with some people any attention is better than no attention.

Does anybody know how or why that negro census taker was killed ?

9:02 - Hilarious! I absolutely loved your comparision of this blog to that of the old men who sit at DQ every morning! The only difference I see is that the men have to look each other in the face, therefore choose their words a bit more carefully. Having anonymous posts on this blog enables people to speak in harsh ways - no way people would say some of the things they do on this blog if they had to put their name at the end of the post!!!

Don't know about his radio show, but on The Factor, Dennis Miller is funny as hell.

He gets on these rolls, and you wish you had taped it to be able to rewind.

Sometimes when I want my boobs to look bigger I arch my back real big like the girl in the white shirt is doing in this picture. Poor thing.....definitely feeling a bit inferior to the girl in the green shirt!

Not that it matters, a person is dead, but Bill Sparkman the census taker looks white in his photo.

Just in from ABC.... the "fed" hanging looks more and more like suicide. Whenever you're living with mom at that age.... the wheels had fallen off long ago. Sorry, liberals ... looks like you've run out of luck with your "the conservatives are crazy" meme. If it IS suicide, he intentionally tried to make it seem that he was a victim. Things that make you go hmmmmmm....

Hope the girl in green tank top stays away from sharp objects. If one of those things go flat, won't be a pretty picture. The purse looks to small to carry a can of Fix-A-Flat.
