Happy Valentine's Day... Highball

Friday 14 February 2014 at 12:33 am



The Saint Valentine's Day Massacre remains an unsolved crime, where 85 years ago, 7 men were found murdered in Chicago's SMC Cartage Company Garage. The only surviving witness to the carnage was a German Shepherd named "Highball", that belonged to one of the victims (John May). Highball's frantic barking alerted the neighborhood, where upon the Police were called in. Police discovered the dog chained beneath a truck & howling in fear.


It's believed that the Chicago cops had the dog put down shortly after the murders. Stories are told that on dark & lonely nights, passersby can still hear the woeful howling of the long-dead canine coming from where the SMC Garage once stood.

Happy Valentine's Day...

Shirley Temple - RIP

Tuesday 11 February 2014 at 07:20 am



As a kid, I spent many years enduring my sister's fascination with some annoying, curly-top kid in the movies she adored. The torment of listening to "on the good ship lollypop..." blaring out of the TV set every Sunday morning was mind numbing beyond compare.

Thankfully, that mop-topp Shirley Temple kid grew into a pretty hot gal that my teenage eyes found really easy to look at. I could understand why Mickey Rooney had the hots for her. Hubba-hubba!

As an adult, Temple retired from Hollywood, raised a family & became active in politics. Her career as a US Ambassador earned her worldwide respect.

Well done, kid.

This Single Photo is Guaranteed to PISS YOU OFF!

Sunday 19 January 2014 at 3:20 pm This single photo was lifted from the FB page of a Utah Senator. It ought to piss you off too!



Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) believes that the United States has become a nation of regulations & although Congress was historically unproductive in 2013, the louts responsible for drafting our nation's onerous federal regulations kept themselves plenty busy.

Just how busy were they? Look at the small stack of papers on top of the display, those are all the laws passed by elected members of Congress and signed into law by the president for 2013!!!

"Behold my display of the 2013 Federal Register", Lee wrote in his Facebook description. "It contains over 80,000 pages of new rules, regulations, and notices all written and passed by unelected bureaucrats."

Thomas Jefferson is "spinning in his grave"!!!

Be Good Kids OR ELSE!!!

Monday 23 December 2013 at 11:14 am Merry Krampus!



During this over-hyped holiday season, today's spoiled, rotten children should take heed of the tales of Krampus, the dark companion of Saint Nicholas. This dark figure of Alpine folklore is known by many names across old Europe, but the beast-like Krampus will punish misbehaving children on the eve of the Christmas season.

Often called the Christmas devil, Krampus tales recall his capture of particularly naughty children in his basket & whipping them with birch branches, then carrying the worst behaving ones away to his underworld lair. Krampus with his gruesome horns & monstrous tongue, predates Christianity, but became assimilated into Euro-Catholic tradition by the 1600s.

You BETTER not pout...
