I have to start this post with “I think the world of Bob Dylan”. I find him inspirational and extremely talented. There are a number of his tunes that I have rated with multiple stars on my iPod.

But what were they thinking having Bob record a Christmas album (Christmas in the Heart). Bob’s particular song styling now tend to put him in competition with the Chipmunks for Novelty Christmas album of the decade. It just doesn’t work – on any level. This just smells of crass commercial pandering – Bob sells well, Christmas albums sell well – voilà a Dylan Christmas album must be a winner.

Errr, not so much. But good for a giggle.

There must be – I laugh out loud everytime I see this opening from the Craig Ferguson show (on after Letterman) I can’t even begin to provide the context. Just know that using puppets for the opening is a running gag. I MUST resist watching it more than once a day.

“SASKATOON, Saskatchewan (UPI)—Police in Saskatoon, Canada, Tuesday shot and killed a 100-pound wild cougar spotted relaxing in a man’s yard.

Young men of Saskatoon had mixed feelings and admitted that they would miss her when last call came around.”

I think it bothers me that I found this funny. I have been working with computers for too long.

I am shocked that they left taxidermy and paint ball off of this list.

eHarmony About You Advice – 5 Hobbies Women Find Sexy: “If there’s any love lesson worth noting, it’s that sexiness has little to do with the way a person looks. What’s more, passion for a hobby—a love for something outside oneself—is incredibly alluring to the opposite sex.”

A wealthy old lady decides to go on a photo safari in Africa, taking her faithful aged poodle, named Cuddles, along for the company.

One day the poodle starts chasing butterflies and, before long, Cuddles discovers that he’s lost. Wandering about, he notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch.

The old poodle thinks, “Oh, oh! I’m in deep doo-doo now!” Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap, the old poodle exclaims loudly, “Boy, that was one delicious leopard! I wonder if there are any more around here?”

Hearing this, the young leopard halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees. “Whew!”, says the leopard, “That was close! That old poodle nearly had me!”

Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the leopard. So off he goes, but the old poodle sees him heading after the leopard with great speed, and figures that something must be up. The monkey soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the leopard.

The young leopard is furious at being made a fool of and says, “Here, monkey, hop on my back and see what’s going to happen to that conniving canine!”

Now, the old poodle sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back and thinks, “What am I going to do now?”, but instead of running, the dog sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn’t seen them yet, and just when they get close enough to hear, the old poodle says “Where’s that darn monkey? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another leopard!”

Moral of this story is:

Don’t mess with old farts…age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill! Bullshit and brilliance only come with age and experience.

As a former human OnStar for a select group of geographically challenged drivers, this made me laugh. (via Crunchgear)

There is no way any cat owner (or business executive) won’t get a laugh out of this EDS commercial from a couple of years ago.
