Web Wednesday: A St. Paddy’s Day Joke

Posted Mar 17 2010 in

An attractive blonde from County Cork in the auld country arrives at the Casino. Reeking of whiskey and a bit unsteady on her feet, she bets twenty-thousand Euros on a single roll of the dice. “I hope ye won’t be mindin’,” she says, “but I always feel luckier when I’m in the nip.” And stripping […]

Web Wednesday: Old Joke #30

Posted Feb 24 2010 in ,

I received this one from my cousin-by-marriage, Phillip, who was also the pastor who tied the knot between Old Dog and me. Bubba and Billy are driving down the road, drinking beer, when they spot a roadblock in the distance. “Oh, shit, we’re gonna get busted!” says Billy. “Don’t worry,” says Bubba. “I got a […]

Web Wednesday: Billy Connolly

Posted Feb 10 2010 in

This was Rachel (of Rachel’s Ramblings) second comic recommendation. If you’ve ever had a colonoscopy (This blog is called The Raisin Chronicles for a reason.), this will bring back memories of something that wasn’t nearly this funny when it happened to you. Note: If you’re easily offended, you may wish to give this a miss.

The Bad News: Message from Massachusetts, where they already have universal healthcare, to the guy with stomach cancer who called into my clinic last summer, the one who was living in his car: “Fuck you, buddy, you’re on your own.” The Good News: My bookkeeping job at the free clinic looks solid!

If You Have Nothing Good to Say….

Posted Jan 14 2010 in

When I was a kid, my mom told us, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything.” Apparently, Pat Robertson’s mom did not share the same message. Yesterday on The 700 Club, he said: When people start claiming to know the mind of God, and explaining the cosmic reasons behind great […]

Web Wednesday: The Sad News

Posted Jan 13 2010 in

There is no Web Wednesday today because yesterday my computer died. It had been ill for quite a while, and I’ve been vacillating between getting it fixed and buying a new one. I’d love to have a new one, but, as we’ve discussed before, I’m tighter than Beyonce’s sweaters, and I hate the idea of […]

Web Wednesday: Dirty Deeds Done With Sheep

Posted Dec 30 2009 in

Okay, this totally cracks me up — almost as much as learning ( from my friend who sells “adult novelties” on the party plan) that sex toy warehouses stock blow-up sheep. (I originally planned a series of posts on stories she’d told me, but the silence was deafening when I did that first post, so […]

Web Wednesday: Carol of the Bells

Posted Dec 23 2009 in

This is one of my very favorite Christmas carols — possibly because it captures the 100-miles-an-hour stress-fest that we’ve made of this holiday!
