The Face of Pain

So I am up enjoying my morning coffee, when I turn on the telly to see Margaret Brennan interviewing The Man…Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky. My gut reaction? What a fantastic forest green dress Brennan is wearing. Then, as I watched the man describing what is happening in his country, and how, with the U.S. leadingContinue reading “The Face of Pain”

Deterrent or Not?

You want to stop crime?  Stiffer deterrents. There are only two things that people understand. Time and death. So murderers will end up as compost and criminals will end up in work camps. You don’t need an infrastructure plan, Jojo. I’ve got all the free labor you want. Empty the prisons; every last one ofContinue reading “Deterrent or Not?”

Records

We are obsessed with breaking or setting new records in just about everything. Sports is the obvious choice for records, but we are starting to see the record for stupidest politician being taken from Andrew Johnson, impeached 19th century president. Trump gets the record, and I can’t imagine the American people ever again putting anContinue reading “Records”

A Great Big Hit

from my bong goes to: Aaron Judge, the new York Yankee who will set the Major League Baseball record with only a couple more home runs. He might have even done it and I haven’t seen the news yet tonight. He’s also the first selection because he probably would refuse the hit, leaving more forContinue reading “A Great Big Hit”

You Cannot Be Serious!

To quote back-in-the-day bad boy tennis brat John McEnroe. At a time when many were put off by the entitled whiteboy, I liked him. Yes, he was a crybaby. Yes, he was an asshole. But when his serve and volley game was on, he was money. If I met him in a bar, I wouldContinue reading “You Cannot Be Serious!”

Oh No I Didn’t

Oh yes I did. Maddogg was playing his 2-3pm show yesterday at the SycamoreSpring Nursing Home where the average age of my audience was closer to eighty than sixty and I am nearing the end of my performance when I ask the group if they have any requests (careful not to ask for any LASTContinue reading “Oh No I Didn’t”

Beauty

          Here is an excerpt from my book Emotions: Not your Mama’s ABC’s! titled aptly enough… Beauty It was another Friday night in Las Vegas, and I was looking to fall in love. My third girlfriend in as many months had given me my pink slip and I was tiring of the Strip prostitutes withContinue reading “Beauty”

Take A Breath

A lot has happened lately and you are entitled to a bit of a breather. It is another gorgeous day in southern Ohio, climbing to a muggy 85 today, but before we left Arizona a year and a half ago, there was a string of 32 straight days in temperatures over 105 degrees! I haveContinue reading “Take A Breath”

Give Me More

I cannot get enough videos of dogs riding skateboards and kicking their legs to keep it going. I could watch those all day. How about stories of getting payback to someone who really deserves it? Revenge, especially for the little guy or girl,  against great odds, is the best. And the more despicable the deservingContinue reading “Give Me More”

Fat People and Other Things.

Relax. I’m not shaming fat people. Hell, I used to be one myself. When I was working as a French chef, I weighed 280 pounds. And I wasn’t any taller. I got my fat honestly from being a raging alcoholic and eating French delicacies day and night. And any reasonable person might think I wouldContinue reading “Fat People and Other Things.”
