Trying to Reason with Tourist Season

For some reason, people on vacation seem to forget their brains at home. Whether driving, checking into motels, being in motel rooms or going to restaurants, tourists seem to be fucking clueless.

From Memorial Day until Labor Day these people are out and about.

Any good ideas on how I should deal with these idiots?
Don't drink this beer, it's BAD!

So Gwen Can Feel Safe


I know that Gwen does not qualify for "Robot Insurance", but she may want to purchase a policy for her Mother, when her Mother qualifies.

Best Conversation I've Had in Years

"Hi!" in a child's voice.

"Yes, this is (my name), is Rick there?"

"I'm not supposed to answer the phone. He's my Grandpa but he's outside mowing the lawn. What's your name".


a pause, I think she's writing

"Do you want me to spell my last name so you can write it down too?"

"Oh, I can't write yet."

"OK, tell your Grandpa I called."

"OK, bye."

Captain Crab's Bad Joke of the Day

A man boarded a plane with 6 kids.

After they got settled in their seats, a woman sitting across the aisle from him leaned over to him and asked, "Are all of those kids yours?"

He replied,"No, I work for a condom company. These are Customer Complaints."

the H is back!

the H, that most surprisingly great thing that happened to me*, is back with a new blog: "Anonymous Blogaholic". Be sure to check out the antics of a country girl living in the city**!

If you want to check on a country girl living in the country go to "Not My Rabbit".

*that doesn't make sense to me either

**like Okie turned Las Vegas, Gwen

And if anyone else turns out to be as cool as they are, there could be a Label in their future also!


Here are some flowers I saw today. One for each of the aforementioned ladies. They will have to fight it out amongst themselves over ownership!

Claimed by Gwen!


the H's, by default!

Update II:

PJ wondered where the flower pictures were taken: the Hurstville Lime Kilns, Maquoketa, IA.

Get out the vote!

With the recent statements by the McCain campaign concerning maintaining troop levels in Iraq and increasing troop levels in Afghanistan, the only way to accomplish both is to reinstate the military draft. Thousands of college age men and women would be summarily inducted into the the United States Army to fulfill the needs of McCain's continuation of the failed policies of the Bush administration.

I do not my daughter or any other man or woman of her age sent to war. I went through that BS in 1969. No one else needs go through it again.

The President's Analyst, rent it!

The following conversation is from the movie "The President's Analyst", from 1967. James Coburn plays a psychiatrist who is given the task of, well the title tells it all. A wonderful, satirical look at the government and "The Phone Company" at work.

The following conversation is between the CEA* Agent (Godfrey Cambridge) and Dr. Schaefer (James Coburn).

*CEA and FBR are thinly veiled names in the movie for the CIA and FBI.
Don Masters, CEA Agent: "I'm a CEA agent."

Dr. Sidney Schaefer: [rises from desk, walks over to read ID card] "You ARE a CEA agent. And you really did kill someone!"

Don Masters: "Ahhummm."

Dr. Sidney Schaefer: "Fascinating, Don... I suppose it's the conditioning of motion pictures, or television, or maybe it's just it's the times we live in, but... killing is serious business, yet this little card makes it somehow less shocking... acceptable in a way! You mean to say you can actually legally kill someone?"

Don Masters: "Yeah, and it bothers me sometimes that I don't feel guilty about it. Don't you think that's psychotic behavior?"

Dr. Sidney Schaefer: "No I don't! It explains your utter lack of hostility. You can vent your aggressive feelings by actually killing people! It's a sensational solution to the hostility problem."

Don Masters: "Doctor, are you trying to tell me it's all right to kill people?"

Dr. Sidney Schaefer: "It's simply a moral question. Morality is a social invention, and in this case society has decided it's not only acceptable for certain people to kill other people... it's even commendable. Don! I've got to write a paper for the Institute on this!"

Don Masters: "I don't think the CEA would like that."
