You Asked - I Delivered

Hope everyone had a great weekend. My dear readers have asked me for a light and fluffy blog piece - like a nice piece of French toast, or Barack Obama's positions on dealing with rogue states. No dry dissertations on Rudy's meltdown, which James Bowman called "far fetched" (I would have to agree with Mr. Bowman on his assessment). No state of the race stuff, no tub thumping about the benefits of limited government, low tax rates, and water boarding liberals everytime they use "the children" as an excuse to justify any tax hike, or wasteful spending. Just fart jokes and armpit noises, so to speak. I shall try my best not to disappoint, and proceed with my trademark blogging by numbers.

1 - You know when a husband's wife asks him to make a wish after blowing a loose eye lash away, or blowing out a birthday candle? This warm and fuzzy look appears on his face, and she's thinking he's wishing that in 30 years, they'll be sitting on the porch as grandchildren scuttle about their feet. Now, imagine as she's looking at him making his wish, a skanky, coked-up hooker suddenly appears behind him. That would be priceless.

2 - I somewhat reluctantly watched the "The Incredibles" this weekend, and was surprised to find some admirable conservative messages. The cartoon took pot-shots at our overly litigious culture, and the importance of extraordinary people in our society. None of this lefty, 'it takes a village' schmaltz about how everyone is special in their own way.

3- I'm going to be celebrating 44 months of sobriety on the 5th of March, so have a drink for me...or a Diet Coke.

4-We will be officially endorsing John McCain in a upcoming blog. We do not do so with the enthusiasm we may have had for say, Fred Thompson or Newt Gingrich, but we must rally around Senator McCain to save us from the dangers of the dragon Lady, or the charming guy with the silver tongue and the head full of spam.

5-And in closing, here's some news from the Hype's files of the weird. Fox news reports that things got ugly at a Massatuchettes Chuck E. Cheese when the mother of the 9-year-old birthday boy apparently became enraged because another woman's son was "hogging" an arcade game, Natick, Mass., police said. Catherine Aliaga, 38, and Tarsha Williams, 33, both of Boston, will be summoned into court to answer charges of simple assault and battery stemming from the scuffle, Sgt. Paul Thompson said. Thompson told the MetroWest Daily News that police received a number of 911 calls about the fight Saturday night. He said what started as a birthday celebration turned into a "birthday melee."

6- It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

The Incredibles is a great movie. Why were you reluctant?

I'm not sure Mr. Budge. It was just one of the movies I didn't have a burning desire to see, but I'm glad I did.

Thanks for reading, and taking the time to drop us a line.
