random thoughts for monday july 12th, 2010

your daily blog is sponsored by DISCOUNT VAC AND DAKOTA HOT TUBS, BOTH IN ABERDEEN…..

1.  today, we salute birthday boy BILL COSBY, who, believe it or not, is 73 years old today…..BILL COSBY is a legendary comedian, actor, and activist……here are a couple of early pictures of BILL COSBY. the first one is his basketball picture when he played for his beloved TEMPLE OWLS….

here is my all time favorite BILL COSBY album called “WHY IS THERE AIR?”

and here is BILL COSBY today on his 73rd, birthday…

2.  here is your comedy break for today…it’s BILL COSBY doing his legendary bit, “BRAIN DAMAGE.”


BILL COSBY was instrumental in the saturday morning cartoon “FAT ALBERT AND THE COSBY KIDS”, a show that he says is based on his childhood and his childhood friends…here’s the theme song…remember this?


3.  last night i was watching “SCOOBY DOO, WHERE ARE YOU?” from 1969, and i was laughing at the villain on the show…almost every single villain ended the show by saying, “AND I WOULD HAVE SUCCEEDED IF IT WASN’T FOR YOU MEDDLING KIDS..”  here’s really cool video of EVERY MONSTER that appeared in the early SCOOBY DOO shows…man does this bring back memories…


4.  JUST SHUT UP AWARD:  REVEREND JESSE JACKSON…he’s at it again, this time turning the LEBRON JAMES move to the MIAMI HEAT as a racist activity…..JACKSON says that CLEVELAND CAVALIERS owner DAN GILBERT is treating LEBRON JAMES as a “runaway slave.”  he says that GILBERT’S feelings of betrayal after LEBRON left CLEVELAND personify a “slave master mentality.” this fiasco that JESSE JACKSON has piped in on, is in regard to DAN GILBERT’S letter to CLEVELAND CAVALIER fans that we put in our blog last friday….RIDICULOUS….this is the simple story of a NBA superstar leaving one team for another, and an owner feeling spurned by the activity….GILBERT says that LEBRON had absolutely no contact with the CAVS, and he found out that LEBRON was leaving just like everyone else..by watching his special on ESPN last thursday night….personally, i don’t have a racist bone in my body…i love all people, just like we all should, but this entire debacle is incredibly stupid….

5.  well, I celebrated my son MITCHELL’S 18th birthday with him on friday…..JEANNIE AND TYLER were gone, so MITCH and i had a blast together…..MITCHELL and I started out our day by going to see the new cartoon movie “DESPICABLE ME”, starring the voice of STEVE CARRELL and others…we have been DYING to see this movie, and frankly, were both disappointed….i don’t know if all the hype got to us, or if the movie just wasn’t very good….neither one of us liked it….but friday night, we watched STEVE MARTIN’S classic movie, “THE JERK.”  now, THAT is one good movie…..

6.  yesterday’s gospel lesson at church was the story of “THE GOOD SAMARITAN”….it’s a story JESUS told about a man getting beaten up and robbed and left for dead on the side of the road.  two religious leaders passed him by and didn’t help, but a despised SAMARITAN stopped and helped the guy and even took him to an inn, paid for his stay, and helped him recover.  the story hits home for me, because we don’t do enough to help our fellow man.  we have so many people hurting out there, and all we have is a “ME, ME, ME,…LOOKING OUT FOR NUMBER ONE” mentality….here’s a challenge for all of you…each week, try to do AT LEAST ONE good deed of helping someone in need….it will make you feel TREMENDOUS….

7.  a two minute recording of MEL GIBSON hurling insults and obscenities at his then girlfriend OKSANA GRIGORIEVA has made it’s way onto the internet….this video is so incredibly horrible that TIGER WOODS AND JESSE JAMES sent MEL thank you cards…

8.  KATE GOSSELIN says that her kids think that she should have won “DANCING WITH THE STARS.”  big shock there…well, she probably would have won if all of her kids had called in…

9.  LARRY KING and his wife have withdrawn their divorce papers two months after filing them…LARRY KING almost went thru with it after his lawyer offered him a “pay for nine divorces, get the tenth one free!!”

10.  a recent study found that senior citizen men who take viagra have twice the rate of STD’S as their peers….and isn’t it ironic that these same guys around the house are using the “clapper.”

11.  LINDSAY LOHAN’S defense attorney has had enough and has resigned from the case…and now she’s signed with THE MIAMI HEAT…

12.  the movie “AVATAR” is coming back in the theaters with like eight new minutes of footage…apparently JAMES CAMERON is tired of his old yacht and needs a new one…


An Irishman who had a little to much to drink is driving home from the city one night and, of course, his car is weaving violently all over the road. A cop pulls him over.
     “So,” says the cop to the driver, “where have you been?”
     “Why, I’ve been to the pub of course” slurs the drunk.
     “Well,” says the cop, “it looks like you’ve had quite a few to drink this evening.”
     “I did all right,” the drunk says with a smile.
     “Did you know,” says the cop, standing straight and folding his arms across his chest, “that a few intersections back, your wife fell out of your car?”
     “Oh, thank heavens,” sighs the drunk. “For a minute there, I thought I’d gone deaf.”
