Summer time, and the laughing is easy.

One of the new popular items at county fairs this summer is apparently deep-fried Kool-Aid balls. (really.) Assume the price on them is $4.20.

Another example of why when you wish/pray for something, it is important to be specific.   The Giants lost to the Twins tonight 9-2, after Minnesota scored 8 runs in the first inning.  How many SF Giants fans said before the game- “God, I am so tired of watching great pitching wasted in 2-1 losses”?

Another day, another Republican candidate. Today it’s Jon Huntsman, who says he wants to “create jobs.” Waiting for the honest man or woman who really states the GOP platform – “More tax breaks for millionaires.”

-

Dirk Nowitzki is now trying to decide whether to take the summer off, or play for the German National Team. Or he could make a Lebron like compromise – play for the German team, but take the fourth quarter off.

-

Now Newt Gingrich’s campaign finance staff has resigned. To paraphrase an old joke, at this point the main difference between Newt’s presidential campaign and Elvis, is that everyone knows the campaign is dead.

-

“Lost” actor Doug Hutchison, 51, announced that he has married his 16-year-old girlfriend, Courtney Alexis Stodden. Even Hugh Hefner is saying “Now that’s just creepy.”

-

Princess Cruise Lines is now dropping both Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta as a port on their seven-day cruises from Los Angeles, citing concerns over “the continued violence in these areas.” Really? If the cruise line was that concerned about violence, they would just drop Los Angeles.

-

In a report released by the American Customer Satisfication Index, airlines ranked 47th amongst among 47 industries. This despite many survey respondents who tried to rank them 50th.

An Amish man was arrested today in Indiana when he arrived at a 12 year old girl’s house in a horse-drawn buggy . Allegedly he had sent the girl sexually explicit messages. So what is an Amish sext? – A hand written note directing someone to look for naked pictures placed on top of their rotary phone?

This next may only make sense to California readers…

Statement from Gavin Newsom’s spokesperson: “Contrary to rumors and speculations cited in recent media reports, Lt. Governor Newsom has no intention of pursuing a run for the U.S. House of Representatives.” Of course not now – at this point he has no idea where things will end up with redistricting.

-

Despite many allegations of the contrary, a investigation by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles of two Columbus-area automobile dealerships found that no state laws were broken as far as used car deals given to Ohio State football players and family members, and that they could not confirm any special deals were tied to free tickets and memorabilia.

The department, however,  declined to release details of  the investigation.  Would just love to see how much Buckeyes’ memorabilia is on display at the BMV.

    FOX Sports Florida experienced the longest commercial break in television history during a recent Marlins game. It occurred right after the announcers said “Looks like McKeon is taking a walk out to the mound. Back after this.”

    Jack McKeon walking out to the mound to make a pitching change is the baseball equivalent of the four corners offense

  2. marc ragovin Says:

    So Jon Huntsman announced his candidacy for president the other day. Man, there hasn’t been so much buzz since Mitt Romney went to the post office

  3. Frank Workman Says:

    Not getting the joke behind the price of a deep-fried Kool-Aid ball being $4.20.

  4. Gary Morton Says:

    Funny…last night I was watching the M’s blow their game – giving up 5 in the 9th at DC, when I decided to listen to the Twins-Giants game. Minnesota was up 4-0 when I turned it on. They had a heck of a pattern going: single/doube; single/double; single/double; single/double. 8 straight hits to start a game is pretty amazing. 8 straight hits anytime is amazing. Guess I lied about the funny part.

    RE: Marc’s reference to McKeon as the equiv. of the 4-corner offense…perhaps Jack will succeed Mike Hargrove as the human rain delay.

    TC etc, it must be a California thing, check out the link. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/420_(cannabis_culture)

      ok, should have picked up on that.

      many of my brain cells were destroyed when I accidentally strolled thru a large crowd gathered downtown on Apr 20 at 4:20 pm. Floating out of a cloud of smoke, I instinctly headed for the 7-11 with the rest of the crowd for a Doritos fix.
