TWO DAYS TO THANKSGIVING…LET THE COMEDY CONTINUE!!

THIS IS JUST WRONG!!

THIS COULD BE EVEN MORE WRONG…BUT DARN FUNNY!!

I’M TALKING JEANNIE INTO THIS ONE!!

A COUPLE  MORE FOR YOU!!

1.  happy birthday wishes are in order today for actor ROBERT VAUGHN, who turns 79 today….you may remember him from such roles as “THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E.”…here he is with co-star DAVID MCCALLUM….

he also was in the movie “THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN.”  a fantastic movie!!

here’s ROBERT VAUGHN today on his 79th birthday…

and in case you were wondering, his co-star DAVID MCCALLUM is still alive today…he is now 78…we featured him a while back on the blog…but in case you missed it, here’s what he looks like today…

2.  for all of you 60’s rock and rollers out there, you’ll probably remember this name…remember the group “THE YOUNGBLOODS?”  well, their founder and lead singer JESSE COLIN YOUNG is 70 today…..here’s the band….and JESSE when he was younger….

here’s JESSE COLIN YOUNG today at 70…still out there rock and rollin’….

 

3.  “THE YOUNGBLOODS” are known for the big big 60’s hit “GET TOGETHER.”  let’s join in and sing along!!!

4.  sad day in history today…it as 48 years ago today that JOHN F. KENNEDY was assassinated in DALLAS, TEXAS….it’s one of those days in history where almost everybody can tell you where they were at and what they were doing……

 

there are still NUMEROUS “cover-up” rumors out there concerning his death….people all over maintain that there was a second shooter, that maybe the government was involved, and that LEE HARVEY OSWALD was set up and didn’t shoot the PRESIDENT…who knows….i just wish that our government would clear up ONCE AND FOR ALL what happened…i think sometimes our government feels like “we couldn’t handle the truth.”  but we can….so, let it out….of course, maybe we’ve already heard the truth and refuse to believe it….

my favorite movie on JOHN F. KENNEDY is the OLIVER STONE movie starring KEVIN COSTNER called “J.F.K.”….great great movie that kind of opens your mind to a few things….

 

5.  my wife, JEANNIE, is an incredible cook….and she LOVES cooking for THANKSGIVING…this past weekend our home was filled with the smell of kringla, lefse and pumpkin pies….mmmm…..now, we just need to keep our grubby fingers out of the goodies until thursday…good luck with that…i had like four kringla last night…by the way, if my brother in law MARK is reading this from TEXAS, YOU ARE NOT GETTING ANY KRINGLA THIS YEAR….ha ha….he loves JEANNIE’S kringla and she has taken care of him in recent years, but this year i cut him off…ha ha…

6.  well, the MINESOTA TWINS have done it again….in case you missed it last night, JOE NATHAN is now gone…the TEXAS RANGERS have signed him to a two year contract…..so, just months after he became the TWINS all time saves leader, we decide to let him go….dang it……

THANK YOU JOE, for many many years of great baseball…all of us TWINS fans will never forget you….

we’re hearing rumors that the MINNESOTA TWINS might not re-sign MICHAEL CUDDYER….if that happens, there could be a revolt……rumors are swirling that the PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES are working on a deal to steal CUDDYER from our favorite team…

7.  the FBI says that it knew about alleged terrorist plotter JOSE PIMENTEL, but didn’t bother getting involved because they thought he was mentally unstable and wouldn’t be able to pull off a major attack…WOW…so, let me get this straight….all the really big suicide bombers are MENTALLY STABLE?  that’s news to me!!

8.  HERMAN CAIN is the first candidate to have SECRET SERVICE protection….i have a few ideas for a code name for him:

DEEP DISH

PAPA PEPPERONI

MR. SAUSAGE

CRUSTY

BUTT GRABBER

MAYOR MCCHEESE JR.

and my favorite…

MR.  NOT GOING TO THE WHITE HOUSE

9.  a LINCOLN, CALIFORNIA teacher has been suspended while officials vote whether to fire HER for running a porn website ON HER SCHOOL COMPUTER…the site was called “MYSLUTTYTEACHERS.COM.”  she may be fired, but all the males in the school have just voted her “TEACHER OF THE YEAR.”

10.  the INDIANAPOLIS COLTS will try to get their first win of the season this sunday…they have lost ALL TEN GAMES so far this year….fans are so embarrassed by their ineptness that they’ve renamed the team “THE INDIANAPOLIS CONGRESS.”

11.  according to new research, older couples who have “intimacy” regularly are much happier…which is prompting a new movie called “NO SO GRUMPY OLD MEN.”

12.  a woman is trying to become the first person to cross country ski across the ANTARCTIC…wow…anything to get out of cooking and having relatives over for thanksgiving!!

13.  JOKE OF THE DAY: (some thanksgiving humor)

A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store, but couldn’t find one big enough for her family. She asked the stock boy, ‘Do these turkeys get any bigger?’

The stock boy answered, ‘No ma’am, they’re dead.’
