MORE ADS THAT MAKE YOU GO HUH?

I am sure we will look back on some of our current ads one day and shake our heads. Until then lets give our heads a shake over these oldies.

If I were an ad executive I would totally use children to advertise the  product. I mean what makes you want a beer more than some little chubby cheeked kid grinning at you?

beer with childOnce I am all tanked up on the Baby Beer I will be hungry I am sure. What kind of sick brain came up with an ad that has a pig disembowelling himself? Not to mention he is standing on his meat. Yuck.

With Christmas coming we should all be looking for that special gift that will scare the living crap out of our kids.

Your breath is not the only reason she isn’t interested in you dude. Apparently you are a cheap jerk.

Soooo apparently Santa is a dirty old man. Remember that next time he asks you to sit on his knee.

All of Johnny’s friends wondered where he shopped for his beautiful outfits. He was one sharp dressed man.

WINE WISDOM

 Repost: I first posted this 2 years ago. Some things stand the test of time. Enjoy.

My sister sent me the following information on wine:

1. Open the bottle of wine ahead of time to allow it to breathe.
2. If wine does not look like it is breathing then give it mouth to mouth.

I should have a medal for all the wine I have saved. I know, I know but I am just giving in that way. Oh look there seems to be a lot of them down right now. I had better get busy.

JUSTICE HAD BETTER PREVAIL

There is a case going back to court once again in British Columbia that is enough to make me spit nails.

A 46 year old man is being sued by his mother for support. Sound reasonable?

How about a mother who left her 15 year old son alone to go off with his father who was a long haul truck driver along with one of their other sons. Leaving this boy to fend for himself. A mother who never even bothered to contact him again until she wanted money.

She is suing her son, Ken,  and four of his five siblings and it has been dragging on for years. She is using a little-used section in B.C.’s Family Relations Act that legally obliges adult children to support “dependent” parents.

Ken spent his youth pumping gas, and couch surfing with friends as he no home. He never got to finish school or even think about higher education.

None of her children except the one who she kept with her talk to her. She dropped her case against him as it would be impossible to collect anything from him as he is in and out of jail.

This woman’s pro bono lawyer says it doesn’t matter what kind of a parent she was they are obligated to support her now.

The other siblings allege that their upbringing was brutal and having to speak of it has caused great distress to them.

She is asking for $750.00 monthly from them.

This woman makes me sick and I will be so furious if she wins her case. A parent is more than just a womb or sperm donor.

I know it costs a lot to raise children but that is a choice we make when we have children. She deserves nothing and i hope she gets it. wicked witch

NOT FOR FIDO PLEASE

We all like to pamper our pets and treat them as family members but did you know there are many things they should not have.

Chocolate

  1. Chocolate is the obvious one that we probably all know about. It stimulates the nervous system and the heart. It is poisonous to all animals but because dogs are more likely to eat it that is when we hear about it. grapes
  2. Grapes and raisins will damage the kidneys of dogs and cats.1549_29_11---Garlic_webonions
  3. Garlic and onions cause anemia by damaging the red blood cells of cats and dogs. gum
  4. Sugarless gum (Xylitol) results in low blood sugar due to increased insulin secretions in dogs. alcohol
  5. Alcohol will depress the nervous system in all species and can cause vomiting, lethargy, tremors, comas and seizures to name a few.  bread dough
  6. Bread dough or raw yeast forms gas in the digestive track. Fermenting yeast causes alcohol poisoning.madadamia
  7. Macadamia nuts will cause muscle and nervous system problems in dogs.avocado
  8. Avocados contain something called persin which will damage the heart muscle in animals, especially birds.

Of course there are many other toxins in the house and garage but we are usually very careful with those. It is these seemingly harmless foods are not on our radar.

This post is in honour of our beloved Maxine who lived a long, safe and healthy life.

ANOTHER ROYAL WEDDING

Sir Paul McCartney is getting married again!!! You probably haven’t got an invitation yet either because they haven’t set a date but I know mine is coming.

mccartney-shevell-460

I am glad she is not some young nutbar like last time. She is 51 years old and has a successful career and is the vice president of administration for New England Motor Freight Inc. and the Shevell Group of Companies that is run by her father.

I still suggest a pre-nup agreement. Hopefully he has learned his lesson.

The wedding should be lovely except I heard the Band they wanted was On the Run. They will have to take a Ferry Cross the Mersey to get to the chapel. I guess it is good he has moved on and will Live and Let Die but Baby I’m Amazed he is willing to try marriage again.

Disney Ending?

Who doesn’t live a Disney ending to life? Happy, happy, joy, joy.

Well I can imagine what it says about me when I burst out laughing this morning when they announced on the news that Happy Feet, the  penguin that was found so far off track in New Zealand and rehabilitated, is no longer showing up on their tracking device and they were not sure what happened to him.

I know, I know, it is very sad. They nursed him back to health after removing kilos of sand from his stomach. He ate it thinking it was snow. The poor little penguin was near death. Every one loved Happy Feet and were so excited for his release. There was talk of a movie being made. Who do you think should play Happy Feet in the movie? What about his love interest?

I am sorry but that just cracked me up. What do YOU think happened to him? 

Well maybe the tracker that they super glued to him just fell off. It was supposed to come of naturally when he moults but maybe the glue let go. It could only read when Happy Feet comes out of the water so if it fell off there would no longer be a signal.

Ya that’s it. It just fell off. Happy Feet is lolling (click here to see my post on lolling) on a beach somewhere eating krill and little fishies. You can see where the transmitter last read on the map. Keep an eye out for him.

happy feet map

I know I will get hate mail now. The world is so in love with Happy Feet and they are all cheering him on and posting positive thoughts for the little guy.

I should put in something deep and profound here about the circle of life but all that comes to mind is Sh#t happens.

TALK ABOUT A MEAN DRUNK

There is a common sight in Sweden every fall. it concerns a lot of drunks. Really big drunks. Likely very dangerous drunks.

What is the cause of this yearly drunken party gone wrong? Apples. Fermented apples.

Apparently the local meese, mooses moose  like the fermented apples and eat them to the point of being falling down drunk. They create a public “mooseance’”

Just like drunk people their judgement is not its best and this particular moose got herself tangled between the branches of an apple tree. The neighbour heard the roars (typical for a drunk) coming from the yard next door.

With some help from emergency services they managed to cut some branches away to free the drunken moose who then spent the night in a stupor in the garden only to leave on the walk of shame the next day with what was likely a king sized hangover.

I see a bad trend starting here.

Bullwinkle has become the public spokesmoose for the rehab for alcoholic moose. It is a busy place every Fall.

BACK TO SCHOOL TODAY

Today is the first day of school here in B.C. It will not be a full day but it is an important day for the kids.

Many have not seen each other since last June. They have grown, they have changed and they are so excited.

There is such anticipation as to who will be in their homeroom classes, where will their best friend end up. What about the boy or girl they had a crush on?

Some kids may have moved away. There will be brand new kids. Kids with no friends. Have you ever talked to your kids about how to welcome someone new?

The biggest concerns would probably be about the bullies. Which class will they be in. Fingers crossed that they have moved away but of course that just makes them someone else’s problem.

How about you. Are you a weepy mom or dad on the first day of school? I have a friend that would have a champagne brunch on the first day of school for all the parents who could make it. Not a lot of bubbly…don’t judge…just a toast to a new school year and some lovely food we all brought.

Here is a great song about those old days.

A BOY AND HIS GROCERIES

I went to get groceries last night after work. I had a cart full of stuff, most of it healthy. Lots of fruits and vegies, yoghurt, cereals, you get the picture.

A young man about 20-23 got in line behind me and put his items on the conveyor belt. I almost laughed out loud for real, not the LOL kind but the out of place snort kind.

This is what this young man had picked up. He had a rotisserie chicken (so did I)

About 6 packets of Kool-Aid.

A package of mini cupcakes all iced up pretty.

A loaf of white Wonder bread.

And last but not least a Lima bean type deli salad. I kid you not.

I guess he thought his breath might need a little help later, maybe this was dinner for a hot date. He grabbed a packet of gum. Impulse item.

I think I smiled about this all the way home.
