The Ressurection of Ohg Rea Tone

Ohg Tone and I have been friends for forty years.  I first remember him when my oldest daughter was two years old.  Ohg showed up and brought sarcastic humor into my family.  As crude as he is – there is always a spark of humor.  Ohg became a writer for thefiresidepost.com in 2007.  After five […]

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. Comments […]

Trash Talk – The Elixir of Human Life

My predecessor at thefiresidepost.com, Ohg Rea Tone, was entertaining – if not always correct.  He slung sarcasm like a pig in a sty.  Mr. Tone recognized the elixir of human life was trash talk.  Those moments in life when humans harmoniously agree on everything are just the one minute break between rounds.  We can tell […]

On Alcoholics Anonymous – A Letter From Prison

Corresponding with an inmate in the Missouri prison system can be rewarding – and it can be heartbreaking.  My friend Joey is again in prison.  Joey is not a criminal – but four DUI’s will get anyone some time behind bars.  I met Joey when he was in Drug Court.  He was my client. As […]

The Demise of Ohg Rea Tone

Ohg Rea Tone has passed nine months hither.  His demise was non-dramatic, no violence or accidents, just worn out.  Some say he was haggard,  a value judgment Mr. Tone would have found appropriate. Mr. Tone was a son, a brother, a father, and a grandfather – yet he had no family.  Mr. Tone was well […]

Fat Prejudice

America, Love It or Fix It.  We don’t know who these folks are.  They produced the following video on prejudice of obese people.  We don’t know what to make of this – it this a good thing or not? Certainly the video does a good job of pointing out sarcasm, prejudice, and even plain old […]

Note to McCain: Sarcasm Is Toxic

John McCain attempted to belittle Obama in their final debate by using sarcasm.  Sarcasm is toxic.  Sarcasm poisons relationships.  Sarcasm poisons reasonable discourse. Sarcasm poisons conversation.  Is this sarcasm an example of how McCain will deal with contentious world leaders? The point here is quite simple. McCain uses his anger, manifested in sarcasm, to try […]

Al Franken takes a shot at Limbaugh, Part I

Son, I labeled this post ‘Part I’ because this cannot possibly be the whole story. Al Franken is a funny guy – but does that qualify him to be a United States Senator? Al Franken is quite an intellect – but history shows that being an intellect is not a precursor to being in the […]

Blogging – Op-Ed on steroids

Son, This world of blogging is fascinating. Large audiences can be reached with the push of a button. Bloggers rarely report the news – rather we just comment on the news. Sometimes the word ‘comment’ does not quite describe what is really happening. Blogging has become a vent for the anger of a frustrated populace. […]

Sarcasm – a toxic elixir

Son, I can be thoughtful – and I can be sarcastic. The sarcasm is a strategy learned many years ago while growing up. It is an old recipe, handed down through generations in my family. I have used it well to win fights – and I have lost many wars. You have heard me say […]
