Friday Fragment (FF) time again.
Thanks Mrs. 4444.
Happy New Years !
(just trying to be early on something for once)
Blown out Santa
I suspect it’s the season and readers are just too busy. I’ve noticed a drop in comments on a few recent posts. Heaven forbid I’ve come down with the condition Witzelsucht.
It’s a bad joke condition in which the patient's uncontrollable tendency to pun, tell inappropriate jokes and pointless or irrelevant stories at inconvenient moments is very noticeable.
Setting the bar - I don’t because it would be so low someone might trip.
I know annoying dumb ads are run on many channels but I suspect the business channel (CNBC) might run even more of them. The ones I find really annoying are the ones suggesting you give someone a luxury car for Christmas.
Really - I checked with my wife and neither one of us know anyone who has done this. If you do, just keep it to yourself and skip to the next fragment.
One that gets me yelling at the screen (what you don’t do that?) shows this lady surprising her man with the car IN THE FRICKING LIVING ROOM. In the extremely unlikely event that ever happened to me, I would be pissed off because the ruined floor, door, etc. Oh thanks dear, I’m so excited, stand back, I’m going to run right through the picture window now.
Another WTF or is it me thought - What’s with the weird auctions lately? Did you see these on the news:
- Auction of a UK aircraft carrier.
- Lee Harvey Oswald's coffin on auction. (Really this could not wait until after the holidays?)
- 52 year old gingerbread house (e-bay)
The gingerbread house seller gave a great answer to a question about it having been treated with anything. He wrote back, “You'd be much better off and safer eating the box it comes in....” Could you imagine having a gingerbread house older than yourself (I wouldn’t have that problem but I’m sure some of you are younger)
Hey I put together a special Christmas video clip so stay tune.
