RIP Jon Swift

Hard to believe this, but I just heard from Bluegal that Jon Swift-aka Al Weisel-died on February 27. His dear mom had posted a comment to let his fans know that he had passed. I had kept going back to his blog periodically to check and see if he would post something, anything-I loved his blog and back when I started, his was the first to check for new posts. The guy could write! He could make you laugh your ass off, and make a point at the same time.
He gave people like me, a chance to shine a little with his annual "Best Blog Posts of 20.." He was loved by both the left and right. He just seemed happy to contribute to any kind of social-political discussion of the day!

I sure hope his blog is kept online. I want to be able to go back once and while and laugh, and get some insight from reading some of the best blog posts ever written.

I know I will miss you, "Jon."

From Behind?! And It Sometimes Comes From Your Behind!

This is an old one but after viewing this video again, I took a look at some of the comments. Quite a few of these are pretty damn funny and witty. Watch the video and then look at the comments for the full effect. Yep-there are the usual stupid, racist and unintelligible Youtube comments, but there are some real come from behind winners! Take you pick.

My Comcast homepage has some dumb ass advertising from different mortgage companies-you know, those stupid people who dance when the cursor is placed on the photo, the lady who looks like she's screaming, etc. The latest one I have seen though, is f'n hilarious. What the hell is wrong with this guy?! It looks like he has just sensed that he is going to have a horrible case of diarrhea, not viewed his latest mortgage payment! Click to see his pained expression!
