random thoughts for monday november 14th, 2011



1.  happy birthday wishes are going out to actor/singer STEPHEN BISHOP…he turns 60 today…..

you may remember STEPHEN BISHOP from his role in the classic “ANIMAL HOUSE”.  he was the guy playing the guitar on the steps singing the song “I GAVE MY LOVE A CHERRY.”  and then JOHN BELUSHI comes down the stairs, grabs his guitar and breaks it against the wall….classic…

music wise, you might remember some of STEPHEN BISHOP’S greatest hits including “SAVE IT FOR A RAINY DAY”, “ON AND ON”, and the theme from the movie “TOOTSIE”.  a song called, “IT MIGHT BE YOU.”

3.  my wife and i used to drive our boys crazy by reciting every line from the hit 80’s movie “STRANGE BREW”…it starred DAVE THOMAS and RICK MORANIS as BOB AND DOUG MCKENZIE…two bumbling, stumbling CANADIANS who like to drink beer…awesome…

***MY TEAM SUCKS….the REDSKINS lost to the lowly MIAMI DOLPHINS yesterday…we gave them their second win of the season….WE NEED A QUARTERBACK…REX GROSSMAN and JOHN BECK stink…

***TONY ROMO had one of the better games of his career as the COWBOYS crushed the BUFFALO BILLS…the BILLS are starting to fade after starting strong…

***speaking of fading after starting strong, the DETROIT LIONS were smashed by the CHICAGO BEARS yesterday…..i was really hoping the LIONS would go deep into the playoffs, if not in the SUPER BOWL….it’s looking bleak….

***i’m happy about this one…the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS really took it to the NEW YORK JETS last night…..i’m happy because hopefully this will shut up JET’S coach REX RYAN…i can’t stand him….

***tonight it’s the MINNESOTA VIKINGS at the GREEN BAY PACKERS….unfortunately for VIKINGS fans, this game has the potential to get out of hand early…hopefully ADRIAN PETERSON and CHRISTIAN PONDER can keep it close….

7.  a bunch of us went to see HAIRBALL saturday night at the DEC…..what a show…it’s not shocking to see why they will soon be headlining in LAS VEGAS…ever two songs somebody would come out of the back of the stage dressed up as a famous rock star, then the band would do a couple of hits by that artist…they did music from KISS, POISON, JOURNEY, PRINCE, and many many others…

14.  parents in a school in CALIFORNIA are upset with school officials who let PORN STAR SASHA GREY come in as a guest reader for the kids….she read to them the following books…




For several years, a man was having an affair with an Italian woman.
    One night, she confided in him that she was pregnant. Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage, he paid her a large sum of money if she would go to Italy to secretly have the child.. If she stayed in Italy to raise the child, he would also provide child support until the child turned 18.
    She agreed, but asked how he would know when the baby was born.
    To keep it discrete, he told her to simply mail him a post card, And write ‘Spaghetti’ on the back. He would then arrange for the Child support payment to begin.
    One day, about 9 months later, he came home to his confused wife.
    “Honey,” she said, “You received a very strange post card today.”
    “Oh, just give it to me and I’ll explain it later,” he said. The wife obeyed And watched as her husband read the card, turned white, and fainted.

On the card was written:

    Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti.
    Three with meatballs, two without.
    Send extra sauce.


     As a senior citizen was driving down the freeway, his car phone rang.
     When he answered, he heard his wife’s voice urgently warning him, “Herman, I just heard on the news that there’s a car going the wrong way on Route 280. Please be careful!”
     “It’s not just one car,” said Herman, “It’s hundreds of them!”
