Viva Mexico!
1. Have you ever been to Mexico?

2. Do you know anyone who is currently in the military?

3. What is the last party you attended?
probably a grandchild's birthday

4. What do you think about President Bush saying that the United States' National Anthem should only be sung in English?
I think he's right - learn the language or remain respectfully silent during the singing of a country's National Anthem, just like I'd do in another country if I didn't know the language.

5. French fries or freedom fries?
Oh puh-leeze! - they're French fries. They've been French fries for all of my years and I'm not about to start calling them stupid Freedom fries to suit the tender sensibilities of some moronic over-reactive. I'm not in the habit of trying to re-write history


Top 5 songs with/or about "space" and if you're feeling frisky 5 "spacey" albums.

1. Age of Aquarius - The 5th Dimension
2. Up Up And Away - The 5th Dimension
3. Space Oddity - David Bowie
4. Fly Me To The Moon - Frank Sinatra
5. Spaceman - Nilsson

(not feeling frisky enough for "spacey" albums... or at least my memory isn't!) ;)


It was a banner week for some LOLing in the city... I couldn't "eat just one!"

Cosmo Quiz Says No Go

Short guying selling CDs on the sidewalk: What do you mean?

He's a Service Rat
Deli guy: You can't have that dog in here.
Lady: But he's a service dog!
Deli guy: What? We'll get a ticket if you have a dog in here.
Lady: He's a service dog. He's just like a seeing eye dog.
Deli guy: What is he, a chihuahua? A poodle? He's not a seeing eye dog.
Lady: He's a Pomeranian! And he's a service dog! He even has a little vest, do you need me to put him in his little vest?
Deli guy: He look like a rat with a wig on.
Lady: He's a service dog! You can't make me leave! He's just like a seeing eye dog!
Deli guy: But you're not blind!
Lady: I could sue you if you make me leave! I'll put him in his little vest, then you'll see!

I don't like when they name airports after people. They should use normal names... like LaGuardia.

--Kennedy Airport
To-ga! To-ga!
Hipster #1: But look how easy it is to pick out the tourists. I mean, look, there's a tourist. There's a tourist. It's so frickin' easy to tell who belongs here and who doesn't.
Hipster #2: Yeah, like why don't they even try to blend in while they're here? It's like they're trying to be Greek when they're in Rome.
Hipster #1 is totally lost.
Hipster #2: You know, 'cause when you're in Rome, you're supposed to act Roman.
Hipster #1: Oh, I've never been to Italy.

Poor Word Choice
Guy #1: I just left a major deposit sitting in that toilet.
Guy #2: You didn't flush it?
Guy #1: It was an automatic flusher and nothing happened. There was a guy waiting to go in and I just gave him a shit-eating grin when I walked out. I mean, what am I supposed to do?
Guy #2: I wouldn't use the term "shit-eating grin" the next time you tell that story.

The Cat
The cat is the animal to whom the Creator gave the biggest eye,
the softest fur, the most supremely delicate nostrils, a mobile ear,
an unrivaled paw and a curved claw borrowed from the rose-tree.

That's a wrap...
