Dear headline writers — SHUT IT DOWN. You’re not going to top this, about a cop, last name Bacon,
who accepted scallops as a bribe, who accused someone of accepting scallops as a bribe.
-Jody, BL Show-
clap. clap. clap.
Got this at a Holiday White Elephant Gift Exchange. I guess it’s supposed to be snarky, but it kind of makes me smile in a completely non sarcastic way.
It’s like how I stopped saying “Have a good weekend!” because I know too many people who work Saturdays and Sundays. I just say, “Have a good one!” Whatever they’re gonna have, I hope it’s a good one!
I’m not a big fan of anyone who makes “Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays” a subject of great import, but I do know that years ago I moved towards more open expressions of good will as opposed to trumpeting my preferred cultural cliches. After all, I’m wishing glad tidings TOWARDS THEM. So I wish you a very sincere Happy Whatever You Love, Man! And I wish myself a Merry Pagan Winter Celebration with Family Connections and Excessive Materialism.

Listen to me talk! I'm on the Orlando Water Hole Podcast! -
My friend Ben was kind enough to invite me to his podcast to talk about the journey over the last few years that led to the publishing of our first book. I’m really happy with how it turned out and I think you’ll enjoy it if you tend to like what you find here on WTJG.
Listen! Download! And spread the word!
We had this when I was a kid. For the record, putting ice cubes in this and attempting to crush them with a HAND CRANK doesn’t produce snow cones. It produces slightly scratched ice cubes and early onset arthritis. #ow #myfuckinhand >
Me: It’s almost Christmas, Ducky.
Me: Time flies when you have no sense of it, huh?
Ducky: Oh, geez! I haven’t heard someone bring up that old myth for years.
Ducky: Time flies.
Me: I see a present under the tree from you for me.
Me: Thank you.
Ducky: The Lady helped me.
Me: I assumed.
Ducky: I assume there’s a little something for me under there?
Me: Of course. The Lady helped with those too.
Ducky: I assumed. She has proven useful. We should keep her.
Me: That is the plan.
Ducky:The cat can go.
Me: I’m afraid they’re a package deal.
Me: Like you and me.
Me: Like a cooler version of you and me?
Ducky: Unless you are comparing yourself to the one of them that’s allowed to poop in a box in the house, I am uncomfortable with the analogy.
Me: Technically they’re both allowed to poop in a box in the house. They Lady just prefers the toilet.
Me: Just one of the little things I love about her.
Me: Her preference for toilets over boxes.
Me: The Lady increases the chances that your dinners don’t get delayed when I work late.
Ducky: Fine. The cat can stay.
Me: That’s the Christmas spirit!
Ducky: Let’s wrap her.
Me: That’s less festive.
Ducky: Merry Christmas, Daddy.
Me: Merry Christmas, Ducky.

Wow. Never quite thought of it that way
