Dirty Jobs

Family, Fun

The boys were complaining about a job I gave them last week; they said it was too hard. So I rented a Dirty Jobs on DVD. Well, I showed them Las Vegas Food Recycler and I think they got the point. Time will tell. Anyway, I’ve been watching it myself and I see that it is quite an entertaining show. Mike Rowe is well-spoken and clever, and he is not afraid to get dirty, and those dirty jobs are quite interesting.



In case you missed it tonight, some drug company or another advertised their new drug on television. This new drug is called aciphex (pronounced ASS-effects). “Whah?!” I’d like to meet the company clown that slipped that past the marketing department.

T-Shirt Wisdom


Tonight, I watched a rerun of The A-Team — which show I never watched as a child — and found myself laughing out loud. You are asking why I laughed out loud and I shall tell you. Murdock’s t-shirt sported the following aphorism: “GOD, GUNS, AND GUTS made America. Let’s keep all three.”

It is surely thought-provoking; and although an incomplete statement, it is true.  God and guns were obviously important to the founders. Among other evidences of this, I submit the first two amendments to the U.S. Constitution. And guts? Well, signing the Declaration of Independence took guts.
