Fat Bastard....

You know that times are tough in France.....

When they take a character like Fat Bastard [Shiraz] and name a wine after it. There is also a Fat Bastard Chardonnay.

I kind of like the hippo characture on the bottle.

Actually in French, Fat Bastard translates into Gros Hybride. But if they make a wine called Batman, I would definitely buy it.

Democrats Abroad....

I just got this notice from the consulate. I have a couple of problems with these Democrats abraod. [Note: I took out the address to thwart all the terrorists that maybe reading my site]

Democrats Abroad Happy Hour – Tuesday, February 13th
Democrats Abroad hosts a happy hour from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
on the second Tuesday of every month at the XXXXX. All are welcome!


1. The happy hour is actually 3 hours. So why call it a happy hour?
2. I have never met a happy Democrat. So why not call it sniveling and complaining hour since that all that will go on there in reality.

I Wonder.......

Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping cart then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, "It's all right?" Well, it isn't all right so why don't we say, "That hurt, you stupid idiot?"

Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting weak?

Why do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection?

Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?

Whose idea was it to put an "S" in the word "lisp"?

If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end you first try?

How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

In Hong Kong winter why is it uncomfortable inside at a temperature that during Summer everywhere inside is lowered to?

If at first you don't succeed, shouldn't you try doing it like your wife (girlfriend) told you to do it?

I Found This Comment Interesting.....

California has always been light years ahead of the rest of the nation in the way of progressive reforms. Their bold new answer to the barbaric practice of spanking children is no exception.

State assemblywomyn Sally Lieber will introduce legislation this week to make spanking your child a crime punishable by a $1000 fine and up to one year in prison. However, stabbing a surgical vaccum into your baby's skull and sucking its brains out will remain one hundred percent legal, as guaranteed by the Constitution.
Its always fun to read the Blame Bush blog.

Lost My Phone, Again....

So annoying. And I didn't save any of my phone numbers. I don't know how to do that other than to write them down somewhere, which I didn't do. If you know me, please give me a call or SMS so I can put your number back on my phone.

Saddam's Cat...

Another Strange Dream....

Reading Fumier, always provides a chuckle at the expense of Hong Konger's driving skills, prompted me to recall a dream I had last night. I was driving on the south-side of the island and everytime I approached on oncoming car, there was quite a commotion, lots of honking and swerving cars. After having several of these incidents, I realized that I was driving on the wrong-side of the road, the right-side, which we do back in my native USA. I wonder if Fumier was one of those cars in my dream. I didn't see any mention of it on his blog today

My Living Will.....

Last night, my wife and I were sitting in the living room and I said to her,

"I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle to survive. If that ever happens, just pull the plug."

She got up, unplugged the TV and then threw out my beer. She's such FUN.

Denial Of Service....

I have been having so many problems with my internet service, particularly the past few days. It was down for most of the day yesterday and is so unbelievably slow today, it is like being back in year 1998 using dial up service. It sometime takes minutes for a page to load. And even local Internet pages, like HSBC sometimes do not load for several minutes. Its been over 2 weeks since the earthquake in Taiwan and my service declined markedly in quality this past weekend. Its awful and I am not sure what I can do about it.

Too Much....

I have been working like a dog as of late. One of the projects that I did was for the Asian Development Bank. It was one of the worst experiences of my working life. No feedback and curt and rude treatment. Never never again will I work for those clowns. They can find someone else that gives a shit.

How Easy It Is To Become A Democrat....

Montana Proverbs....

Give a man a fish, you've fed him for a day.
Teach a man to fish, he'll never work for the rest of his life.

Give a man a fire, he will be warm for a day.
Set a man on fire, he will be warm for the rest of his life.
