random thoughts for wednesday june 1st, 2011

I’M A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED…FOR THE FIFTH YEAR IN A ROW, MY CHURCH HAS TURNED DOWN MY COOKIES FOR THE ANNUAL BAKE SALE…AND AFTER I SPENT SO SO SO MANY HOURS BAKING THEM…

 

1.  happy birthday wishes are going out to legendary actor and tv star ANDY GRIFFITH…ANDY is 85 years old today….i always thought that he was such a downhome, wholesome, good looking man…

 

ANDY GRIFFITH is mostly known, of course, for “THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW,” and “MAYBERRY R.F.D.”…

here are a couple of pictures of ANDY GRIFFITH on his 85th birthday….the first one is part of his new “medicare” commercials, and the second one is with GEORGE “GOOBER” LINDSAY of the hit tv show…

 

2.  today in our “whatever happened to” file, we check in on an oldie, but a goodie, comedian W.C. FIELDS….W.C. was known for his drunken, good natured fun on screen…here’s an early picture of him….

MY LITTLE CHICKADEE….W.C. FIELDS did a few movies with the legendary MAE WEST….

he also is known for his famous movie quotes, including this one…

W.C. FIELDS talked negatively about religion and other subjects, and it’s said that one time a friend went into his hospital room in his later years, and found him reading the BIBLE…W.C. FIELDS apparently told him “I’M LOOKING FOR LOOPHOLES.”  ha ha…W.C. FIELDS died of an alcohol induced hemmorage at the age of 66  on CHRISTMAS DAY 1946….

here is his burial plot in FOREST LAWN MEMORIAL PARK in GLENDALE, CALIFORNIA…

 

3.  and now, another of life’s big questions is answered…WHAT DO LUTHERANS DO WITH THIER LEFTOVER BEER BOTTLES?  you’re about to find out…THIS IS AMAZING….

4.  my wife and i watch reruns of ‘THE OFFICE’  most every night…and i have one thing to say….SAY IT AIN’T SO, STEVE CARRELL…PLEASE COME BACK…PLEASE STAY ON THE SHOW…i just don’t know if the “MICHAEL SCOTTLESS” show is going to be any good….MICHAEL SCOTT, the boss on the show completely MAKES the show…i guess time will tell….

5.  ESPN had my blood pressure up the other days….well, maybe not ESPN but the dreaded LOS ANGELES LAKER…the LAKERS hired a new coach by the name of MIKE BROWN…the LAKERS said in a press statement, ‘WE REGRET NOT TALKING TO KOBE BRYANT ABOUT THE HIRING BEFORE WE MADE THE DECISION..”  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?  to me, KOBE is no bigger than any other on that team…yeah, he’s the best, but does he deserve that kind of treatment?  and then yesterday, the new coach met privately with KOBE BRYANT to find out KOBE’S ideas for the direction of the team…that’s it folks…feed into another superstar’s huge ego…GEEZ…

6.  every night I dvr “THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH CRAIG FERGUSON..”  i’ve made comments here before that i think he’s the absolute best, by far, on the late night talk show circuit…well, every night he does an “e-mail” question and answer session…last night i e-mailed him a question, and i’m dying to see if i make the show tonight…i doubt i will, but i’ll be finding out….watch it, or i’ll let you know…

7.  SARAH PALIN took a break from her tour for a last minute dinner with DONALD TRUMP…i haven’t heard any results of the dinner, but i just hope that SARAH didn’t mistake TRUMP’S hairpiece for an otter….

8.  a medical report says that it’s a bad idea to let kids consume energy drinks…that’s right, GOD FORBID that we wouldn’t want them to get enough energy to mow the lawn or clean their rooms…

9.  a bunch of researchers have determined that cellphones can cause cancer after they reviewed details from dozens of published studies…so, now to all of you wives out there…you can’t get angry when your husband says, “sorry honey, i have to hang up…you’re making me sick.”

10.  a new study suggests that the excessive use of hand sanitizers may cause users to test positive for booze…it’s 90 percent alcohol…just like CHARLIE SHEEN…

11.  the anchor from BLACKBEARD’S  ship was retrieved near NORTH CAROLINA…state officials hope that tourists will visit the 300 year old anchor…why not?  people still watch the 300 year old anchors on ’60 MINUTES.”

12.   a man from GREAT BRITAIN says that he is addicted to sausages, and he’s tried everything to get over the problem…he’s currently in a support group with MONICA LEWINSKY….

13.  did you hear what happened at COWBOY’S quarterback TONY ROMO’S wedding the other night?  his bride threw the bouquet and it was INTERCEPTED…

14.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

legendary musician and classic music writer BEETHOVEN is, of course, dead…what’s he doing today?  DECOMPOSING….(that’s bad)

HAVE A GREAT WEDNESDAY EVERYBODY…

JAY DEAN
