They say even the proudest spirit can be broken… with love

We watched the movie Coraline the other weekend about five times. Hey, I’ve got a three year old and she’s really into repetive viewing. Go figure. Anyway, the character Other Mother was one spooky lady! My daughter did not like her. Not one bit. Hell, none of us did. She was bad, bad, bad. (So sharp, you won’t feel a thing… shudder.)

So I’m watching the news the other day, and here comes ‘ol Nancy Pelosi.

God damn! I just about dropped my beer right then and there. Man, that one took a year off my life.

I looked over toward my daughter in case that mug splashed across our giant t.v. in HD scared her as much as it scared me. And, you know what? She wasn’t paying any attention at all. Even at three years old she already knows that when Daddy has on the News Hour with Jim Lehrer, it is something she best ignore completly.

Ignorance is indeed bliss.

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. I got an email yesterday that said WARNING: If you get an email that says “Naked Pictures of Nancy Pelosi” DO NOT OPEN it. It contains naked pictures of Nancy Pelosi.

  2. From the Amazon review:
    “His chapter tying Darwin to Adolph Hitler, Karl Marx, and Joseph Stalin was as well argued as anything I’ve seen since Art Bell first proposed his theory that sasquatch are biological androids built by draco-reptillian aliens bent on eating our gonadial tissues.”
