a morbid joke

A door-to-door salesman was talking to an old woman.

"If you should ever fall and cannot get up, just push this button on this device on your wrist."

The lady looked at the device and asked, "Then what happens? Will it summon help?"

"No," the man said, "If you have fallen and can't even get up, you are much too old! This will give you a lethal injection."

choose company names wisely

Again from our local paper, excerpts from an article about a company that sells stripper poles, (oops - excuse me - "dance" poles,) for your living room:

FRESNO, CALIF. - A new export is taking hold in a tiny industrial park in east Fresno, Calif.: stripper poles.

Pacific International Marketing & Promotions (yes, PIMP) manufactures the Lil' Mynx stainless steel dance pole. Designed for the average living room, the poles are easily installed and can be removed in seconds in case the Avon lady stops by.

. . .

He and his wife hope to have the poles and the exercise videos sold in Target and Wal-Mart someday. And that means the marketing must be clean. They call the pole a dance pole, not a stripper pole.

Uh, Randy, you might also want to change the name of your company if you want to get into Walmart.

daylight saving time

Finally, a use for daylight saving time worth the effort. From Raleigh's News & Observer:

In 1999, a terrorist attack on Israel's West Bank was thwarted when the terrorists failed to take into account the switch back to standard time. The bomb went off an hour early, killing only the terrorists.

here we go again

For those who may have missed my post about Men's Butts on one of my other blogs, I talked about how today's movies seem to favor showing the naked, sagging backsides of aging male actors.

Well, yesterday we saw Wild Hogs. And sure enough, there was no less than two shots of male derrièreage - one of them senior citizen actor William H Macy.

What passes for comedy these days.
