Nifty Fifty And Award

Well it has been roughly 3-4 months since I started blogging on here, and I have to say that is has been interesting to say the least. I have reached the mark where I have 51 followers of my blog. I am really shocked by this as I never expected to get above the 5 follower mark as I don’t think my sense of humor is that good. To have 51 followers in just a few months I guess is like NASA landing people on the moon back in the late 60’s and early 70’s. It is a miracle to say the least in my eyes as I never ever thought other people would find my writing funny and informative, much less actually read it and follow it. So I am very thankful to my followers.

Actually I should not call all of you my followers; I should call you straight jacketers because if you like my sense of humor, you are not normal either. But your mental problems are for another time and place in my future blog postings.

As I have said before, I started this blog as a way to put into paper (rather ePaper) my thoughts on various subjects that come to my mind. Sometimes these thoughts are about politics, sex, common sense, things I see in the news, and things I find odd or funny. I keep a little list of stuff that I need to write about it. So I will continue my popular “Great Inventions” and “Worldly Wednesday” posts as you seem to like them. I also will have some upcoming posts about my experience with my vasectomy, politics, how I would handle illegal immigration, more sex tips, political correctness, more on the TSA, and many other interesting topics. So stay tuned.

Since I said if I reached 50 followers I would post a picture of myself. So I am doing that. Here is a little picture of me and my friend Lafawndah. Yes the Lafawndah from the Napoleon Dynamite movie. Yes we are homies. And yes the picture was photo-shopped. I don’t know any celebrities, but that is beside the point. Although I once met George Carlin in the Pittsburgh airport, and yes I did recite one of his jokes when I met him. He was shocked that I mentioned that particular joke as he said no one ever comments about it. He laughed and said I was a funny kid and autographed my copy of the paper from that day. I still have that paper in a tupperware container at home. I should frame it since he is my all time favorite comedian and he passed away back in 2008.

In the future I will post a nice little picture of myself for every 50 followers I add to my blog. So when I get to 100 followers I will post a picture of myself that was taken back when I was a stripper. Yes I said a stripper picture. So spread the word on my blog so you can one day see my photo spread.

Enough about me. Onto the award which I was recently awarded, which is the “Tanned Hide Award”. The picture looks really cool and since I do enjoy spanking a nice little lady so I guess it fits with my sick twisted sense of humor. I don’t know what the rules are for this award or what the qualifications are for getting this award, so I am going to tell you about the person who gave me the award. One of my followers Bruce gave me the award. He is one funny dude and he has two blogs where he has Bruce and his Evil Twin which each write a blog. They are fucking hilarious and you should check the blogs out (especially if you like the word FUCK).



Well enough for now as I have work to actually do today at work. Everyone have a great weekend. Remember; if you can’t be good, then fucking be good at it.

  1. Great post... Bruce does have good stuff on both of his blogs, congrats on the award. I haven't been blogging too long either and I often wonder how the hell I have managed to get the followers I have with the nonsense crap I put out there - God bless those peeps.

    I love Carlin and have since I was a kid. The Lady Friend and I have played his 'books on tape' and CDs while on road trips. Very sad he's gone.

  2. @ Simple, Thanks you. You are correct, Bruce writes some good stuff.

    And I have loved Carlin since I was a kid as well. I promised in late 2007 and early 2008 that I was going to vote for him as President (as a write in candidate) and then he died. So I still wrote him as my choice for President as I thought a dead comedian could have done a better job than the 2 choices we had in the 2008 election for President.

  3. Carlin was the best. I absolutely loved him. How cool that you met him! :-)

    Congrats on the 50+ followers and yay for the picture!

    I love the upcoming subjects so I'll be sure to be back; not that I wouldn't have been anyway. How can I resist a blog as awesome as this!?

  4. @ Jewels, yes he was the best. IT was very cool. I was sitting at the gate in the airport waiting for my plane to arrive and he got off the plane I was supposed to get on. I was the only who in the area who recognized him. My mom was shocked and let me run up to him.

    And some of my upcoming ones are good. Stay tuned.

  6. @ Bothered, you are welcome. Your blog is good. And thanks for checking out mine. And maybe we will run into each other at a chinese buffet. I will be the fat ass American that the little old chinese lady is yelling at saying I have been eating too much.

  12. @ Brans, I could do that, but I highly doubt there is anyone who wants to see me nakid.

  13. Well, THERE you are with Lafawnduh! You do make a great couple. Is she as fun in person as she was on the show?

  16. Stripper? HOW long have I known you? And I'm just now finding out about this stripper bit? sigh.
    I can't comment on the award specifically, except to say congrats. Anything I say at this point would be highly inappropriate lol

  17. @ Miley, I can't let a woman know all my secrets. I may have to go back to stripping if this oilfield doesn't work out.

  18. Too cute, love the pic! Congrats on all the followers! I too am amazed that people find me interesting enough to follow! And congrats on the well deserved and earned award! Way too go!

  19. Totally true. May I suggest a blue lace thong? They are very "in" for the male strippers these days. I would also like to suggest we find you a stage name in advance, just in case you are in a bind and need to find a job in a hurry.

    ReplyDelete
  20. @ SSW, thank you. Your blog is good, and people will come to it.

    @ Miley, Why blue? Or I could just strip out of my blue coveralls from work. Hmm.... And I do need a stage name. How about Oily Trash, and I could be all covered in chocolate syrup made to look like oil. Yea thats it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Blue because... I dunno. You're a boy? Hot pink isn't your color and black would make you look FAR too pale?
    I like the chocolate syrup idea.

  25. I love bruce too. And I really like your blog too. Congrats on the award and the 50 followers. May I request a pic of you and Hugh Jackman? Cause I really lust after Hugh Jackman

    ReplyDelete
  26. Congrats on the much deserved award. You deserve it, and more. I'm really enjoying reading your stories. Can't wait to see pictures of the stripper you. We all have to get together and help spread your followership to 100 so we can see your "spread". Keep it up!

    ReplyDelete
  27. @ Truth, thank you. I am glad my twisted humor cracks you up. Check back as most if not all of my posts are full of humor.

    @ Mynx, yes Bruce is hilarious. As for the Hugh Jackman picture, I will see what technical support can do.

    @ Nikki, Thank you for your continued loyal readership. The stripper picture could be a reality as I have gained 3-4 new followers since yesterday morning.

  28. I loved Carlin. Such a point of view!

    And in your answer to your comment on my post, yes, the Mexicans have been around in MN for quite a while. I remember them in the 60s (primarily migrant workers/farm hands) and now there are Mexicans and a number of South Americans, particularly, for some reason, Ecuadorans. Never took Spanish in high school, but it definitely is the language of restaurant kitchens.

    And now, if you'll excuse me, I have black pants and a white shirt to wiggle into. :-)

  36. @ Miley, I do give you some credit as you got me my first 10 followers by pimping me out. I got the rest by reading other peoples blogs and leaving comments.

    And yes there are better pictures of me out there.
