Want to go down an internet wormhole you can spend days in?


After I post the Playboy cartoons on the blog, I post them on to Pinterest. There are over 850 of them here:

But, before you go, consider this:

Mother's Day is two weeks from today.
 Are you going to wait until the last 
minute to get her something nice?
 
You can do that. Wait 'til the very last minute and get her
some cheap-ass chinese made bulshit at the gas station.
 I'm sure she'll be overjoyed at your thoughtfullness.

OR - you could get her something like this - 
especially if she loves cats...

There's a good reason I don't play golf any more...


My father usta have a saying - actually he had a couple million sayings about just about everything, but I digress - this one was about course manners when you're playing  golf. 
He said 'Your mission is to play behind the group in front of you instead of of playing in front of the group behind you. Good, solid New Englander advice. Obviously most people who play golf - especially down here with all the old farts on the courses, they have never heard that saying. Average round here is four and one half hours. I don't have that kind of patience - or that muct time - left in my life. 
 

Read this story - it's pretty fuckin' funny but also very telling about how much these old geazers suck at playing at a reasonable pace:

While I'm in a music jag...

 

Frank and Dean having fun...

 




Like I said - it's a Sinatra kinda Day, so...

 Here's an hour's worth of classics in duets. 
This guy had so much talent and class. Enjoy...





It's Sunday - of course it's in color...

It's a Sinatra kinda Sunday...



Even if you had too much money, this would probably not be a good idea...

French luxury tour operator Safrans du Monde offers deep-pocket adventures a unique way to travel. Using a chartered passenger jet, the company operates multi-day "air cruises" that take travelers around the world in an all-inclusive itinerary.
The tours include the private flights, 5-star hotels during stopovers, three meals a day, and excursions in each city. Currently, there are two trips posted on the company's website: the 22-day World Tour Grands Classiques, which visits places in South America, Australia, and Asia, and the 24-day World Tour Special Edition, which treks to Mexico, New Zealand, and Israel, among other countries.
A Safrans du Monde spokesperson told Insider that reservations have been "booming" for two weeks and the company is "confident that the plane will be filled in no time, as every year." Prices range from $75,000 to $122,000 per person, with two fare options available — Club Safrans and Première Safrans. 
 

Both include the fancy hotels and meals, but Première comes with added perks, like "first class" service on the A340, extra excursions, and "grand luxury" accommodations.
 




"I'm tellin' ya - it's the same dame..."

This is a colorized (by me) photo still from the Preston Sturges 
1941 classic 'The Lady Eve' - one of my all-time favorite old flicks. That dress she's wearing was made/designed by Edith Head. A classy outfit for sure. 
Anyway, me and my wife have this argument every time I'm watching a movie with her in it. I think she was funny as hell and a really good actress - and really, REALLY attractive. My wife thinks she was a dog. This argument will not end well. Is this kinda shit acceptable as grounds for a divorce?

You know me - I normally don't do the 'meme' thing unless it's something 
I did myself, but this one got me perplexed. I'm definitely not 'well-versed in the good book' as some of you might be. Actually, I think I've only legit opened one just a couple times in my whole life, but that's a story for another day. My question is, if this shit is for real and it says all this in it, why is it called 'the good book'? Asking for a friend...

And just in case you were wondering, this is/was my parish church 
when I growing up. Of course it 's a little intimidating...

Tornados in Palm Beach? Are they even allowed there?

A Russian army commander has been arrested in connection 
with the alleged theft of engines meant for advanced T-90 battle tanks. Investigators accuse Colonel Alexander Denisov of stealing seven tank engines valuing roughly 20.5 million rubles, around $260,000, between November 2021 to April 2022, the Russian newspaper Kommersant reported. 
The V-92C2 engines were intended to be installed in T-90 tanks, investigators said. Denisov, who was the head of the technical support department of the Southern Military District, was arrested last month.

What a genuinely miserable cunt.

And we wonder why people are so fucked up and confused 
about just about everything these days...

They say this is the world’s oldest known living tree. They think it sprouted sometime during the last Ice Age, roughly 9,550 years ago. This 16-foot spruce in the Dalarna province of Sweden. How the fuck could they possibly know this?

She's 82 now, but back in the day she sure did like her motorcycles...

Inflation causes deflation. Wait - what?


Inflated prices + deflated portions = 'shrinkflation' according to this report. We've all seen it. There's even more air in tha bag of Frito-Lays then there usta be. Here's the chart they did:
 

You can read the full report here on DailyMail.com:




California has a grand vision of the diesel-less future. We just can't figure out how they'll do it...

California air regulators on Friday voted to ban diesel truck sales by 2036.
The California Air Resources Board unanimously approved the measure called Advanced Clean Fleets, which would prohibit the sale of new diesel big rigs by 2036 and force trucks to produce zero-emissions by 2042. New commercial trucks, such as garbage trucks, delivery trucks and other medium and heavy-duty vehicles, would need to convert to electric under the rule.
“The initial focus would be on high-priority fleets with vehicles that are suitable for early electrification, their subhaulers, and entities that hire them,” the website outlining the program states.
 

 “The goal of this effort is to accelerate the number of medium and heavy-duty zero-emission vehicle purchases to achieve a full transition to zero-emission vehicles in California as soon as possible.”

How long will Happy Hour last at THIS joint?

An Indiana bar is begging for civility after vowing to kick paying 
customers out for trashing Bud Light for its promoting transgenderism with a social media ad sponsored by Dylan Mulvaney, a former gay man who now dresses as a woman.
Fairfax Bar & Grill in Bloomington, Indiana, immediately got behind Bud Light and Mulvaney following backlash. Bar owners went as far as to state that they would kick paying customers out of their business if they trashed Bud Light and Mulvaney.
 

I'm sure this will work out just fine...


Only in Florida, where cops have to wrangle gators...

 

Calvin's in color on Saturdays...



Three strikes and she was outta here...

Truly enlightening reading. I wonder how this is working out for her...





A strong fallback job for Tucker Carlson? He said he's going to 'sleep on it'...

Former Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson has left millions of his viewers guessing about what his next steps will be after parting ways with the conservative network earlier this week. However, the wait may not last too long since he's already received a couple of job offers, including one from MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell.
The Republican businessman said on Friday that he reached out to Carlson and another former Fox News host Dan Bongino in the wake of their departures from the network and welcome them to his own network, Lindell TV. "We would love to have them as part of our team!" Lindell said on an episode of The Lindell Report.

Two Students at Tavares (Florida) Middle School Charged for Making Written Threats and Disrupting School Function
Two 13-year-old female students were arrested yesterday afternoon after a threat of a school shooting was written in marker on a bathroom mirror. The school resource deputy was notified when other students found the threat in one of the girls’ bathrooms, at which time he began investigating. 
The resource deputy was able to quickly identify the two female students who were responsible. One admitted to writing the threat along with the other student. When deputies searched their backpacks, each one had markers that matched the writing on the mirror.
The two girls were placed under arrest and transported to the Lake County Detention Center.

If you can imagine it, there's a website for it. This one is click-bait so I won't 
bother posting it, but it makes my point. Think of any random, bizarre topic 
you possibly can and google search it. It'll be there, trust me.

The San Diego Housing Commission is under fire over plans to purchase and convert three hotels into housing for the homeless and migrants that comes with a price tag of $400,000 per room.
 

Critics of the plan argue its a waste of taxpayer money that fails to address the root causes of homelessness. “California’s got about a third of the homeless of the entire country. 
Gee - do you think the fact that the state is an enabler of all this bullshit has anything to do with it? You planted the seeds, now tend your crops there, Bubba...

Just in case you might have thought things couldn't get any stupider in the Empire State, think again.
Gas stoves will soon become toast in New York, under a controversial new handshake deal between Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul and Albany lawmakers that would make that state the first in the US to ban natural gas.
