A Visit To The ER

I cut my finger.  Or perhaps I should say my finger was in the way when the door was closing.  I thought for a moment the finger was broken but it turned out to be only a bone deep cut.  My deductible for an ER visit is seventy-five dollars – what to do?  After a […]

Artistic Interpretation of Trump Victory

Ben Franklin was a Founding Father who used political cartoons as a means of persuasion.  With biting with he would cause a person to reflect and reconsider.  And that was not his day job.  Some people are just naturally gifted at imagery and symbolism used a tools for thoughtful discourse.  I am no expert on […]

My Psychiatric Nerve

I have problems; always have had, likely always will.   One of the problems is in naming my problems.  Naming problems is categorically dependent.  When naming a problem, do I use the language of religion, psychiatry, layman, political party – or some variation of modern self-help-ism.  As with most spoken words it depends on the audience.

Donald Trump Jokes

“Last night, Donald Trump said if he’s elected, he will employ a ‘deportation task force.’ It’s not really necessary, because if he’s elected most people will probably leave voluntarily.” –Conan O’Brien “The Boston Globe just reported that according to his campaign staff, Donald Trump wouldn’t take any vacations as president. I think that’s because he […]

My Curiosity Defeats My Timidity

As the title eludes, I like to think I have a defense from fear. Many long years ago, my eldest son was about three. Our yard was fenced in and the best place for him and his sister to be in the summer. Our house was not air-conditioned.  This particular day I was visiting with […]

Mixed Blessings, Home Remodeling, and painting the carpet

I have been furiously cleaning house for visitors over the holidays.  I am faithful about this chore, every eleven years I clean the house whether it needs it or not.  This time it is so bad that I decided the best way to cover the dirt was to simply paint it. I have been painting […]

Walking the Roof of Methodist Hospital – Circa 1972

It was literally ‘the good old days’.  Data Processing.  No MIS or IT or IS.  We processed data – and the data came in the form of punched cards.  Everything was ‘batch’ processing – almost no ‘real time’ interaction.  But that is an aside for the purposes of this post.  This story is about walking […]

Political Correctness – Applying Manners Across The Board

I grew up in a lower class mixed race neighborhood.  At age twenty-two, with no college training, I went to work in an office, wearing a coat and tie.  I was rude and crude.  But I have to say that by today’s standards we were all somewhat rude and crude – times change and polite […]

The Absurdy Of Private Humor

My friend has a girlfriend – she lives in another State.  I assumed that refers to geography rather than a mindset.  He told me that he called her and they talked for two hours.  He called the next day and she reported that she is running out of minutes so she cannot talk again until […]

Duck Dynasty – When Rednecks Are No Longer Funny

You might be a redneck if you go to family reunions looking for girls.  Pretty funny stuff right there.  God forgive me.  Duck Dynasty is a reality show airing on A&E.  The premise is simple – some rednecks living in the swamplands of Louisiana became rich selling hand wrought Duck calls.  But, alas, they remain […]

Job – More Fun With Christians

DarkMatter2525 has come through again.  This time with the satirical interpretation of the Book of Job.  The humor is blatant, the sarcasm unveiled, the truth challenged.  My view is that these folks are doing a great service to humanity.  Any healthy Christian faith must recognize the absurdity of the literal interpretation of the Bible.

Bible Biology – Esau and Jacob

Bible biology is always a complex matter.  If there were no complexities in bearing children (like a sterile woman) what use would we have of God? Take the case of Jacob and Esau. They would not exist without the intervention of a loving God. Well, one might have to understand that God is loving but […]

Random Humor From the Internet

Physician Jokes

Doctors are brilliant.  They cure poor people faster. My doctor told me I had two weeks to live.  I hope they are not in August.

He’s not egotistical.  He just loves intelligent people. He collects his own autographs. Some people think they know everything.  They irritate those of us who do.

Three Wise Men and One Virgin

You can’t make this stuff up.  I have heard that before – but these guy made this stuff up:  Jay Leno said, “The Supreme Court has ruled that they cannot have a nativity scene in Washington, D.C.

Jay Leno Uses Humor as Defense

Jay Leno has taken some hits this past week.  With his ‘prime time’ show canceled, pulled, and jerked off – Leno is looking to return to the late night carnival circuit.  Pushed out of the game of dominoes is Conan O’Brian.  Conan’s ratings (the true measurement of media) have fallen far behind Dave Letterman.  None […]

Super Nigger

Richard Pryor broke the rules, and we are grateful. Pryor was most effective in using humor to contrast the insanity of racism and the ultimate humor inherent in absurd words. Oprah will not like this post – but she failed to renew her advertising so we got nothing to lose, bro.

John McCain with Jay Leno

Why does this happen.  After an election we see the real charm of the candidates who lost?  We sincerely wish McCain has just been himself during the campaign – America deserves a healthy dialogue on issues.  Check out McCain with Jay Leno – this is pretty good:

McCain, Palin is Great Because I was a POW

John McCain had a news flash for Americans in the town hall debate the other day.  McCain was clever in demonstrating his comprehension of American politics.  Some of his jargon is difficult to follow – probably because his language was affected while serving as a POW. Highlights from McCain’s debate answers: The moderator is a […]

EPA Puts Republicans on Endangered Species List

Retard Thunder

Ben Stiller has a new comedy movie being unveiled this week. The movie is called “Tropic Thunder.” But it is being trumpeted as some sort of evil incarnation of ancient bigotry against mental illness or the mentally impaired, or something like that. Apparently the movie uses the term ‘retard’ multiple times. The movie has an […]

Addiction Humor

So what is funny about getting drunk or high on drugs? Just about everything – if you are observing someone else.

Robin Williams on Golf

Caution to readers – this Robin Williams is hilarious – but he uses strong language to punctuate his message.  Williams pulls every trick out of his big bag of humor to make this work.  He is animated, uses slang, stresses ethnic accent, and adds to the humor by throwing in a drunk Scotsman.  This is […]

George Carlin on Ten Commandments

Son, How about a little humor at the expense of Christian Religion. Ten sounds official – it sounds important – good humor by a master. Carlin reduces the Ten down to more manageable terms.

Son, Humor is the essence of sanity. Check out these videos.

Al Franken takes a shot at Limbaugh, Part I
