It's been a dull week so far and today's Hump Day, so I'll be donning my cape and mask and heading out into the cruel world to save ladies in distress. A lot of them protest and say, "Go away!", but I know they're just shy. I've got to remember to put on the right costume 'cause last week I wore my boots and spurs and brought my whip and that just caused problems (You're sick! I know).
So, I'll be heading out to an AREA 51 somewhere for happy hour...probably Lakes Cafe, but I never really know 'til I get there. I've got to get my "missions" in order, because starting tomorrow, I'll probably be hooking up with some of my lady friends. But tonight, I'm just going to wing it and see what happens.
Hurricane Dolly is hitting the Texas coast at the time of this entry and one of the things that piss me off is the coverage by the media. It's a Catagory I hurricane at best and every time you turn on the news, there's always some asshole standing in the wind and rain, giving you a report. What you don't see is the same asshole sitting in a safe room drinking coffee at the motel and only stepping out into the elements to film the report. I'm always concerned about storms and weather, but I don't need 24 hour a day coverage.
While I am aware that the media generates its advertising income based on ratings, there should be a point in time where you decide to be a news organization or a whorehouse. Witness the mindless, childlike fawning and doting over Barack Obama. It's an NBA Basketball mentality and every news organization is subscribing to it.
Although I've said this for months, the fact that the media is biased in their presidential coverage is finally coming to the forefront with shows like Letterman and Leno doing nightly jokes about it. The accusations are also coming from knowledgeable sources from other television and radio stations as well.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
A young man and his date were parked on a back road some distance from town. They were about to have sex when the girl stopped.
"I really should have mentioned this earlier, but I'm actually a hooker and I charge $20 for sex." The man reluctantly paid her, and they did their thing.
After a cigarette, the man just sat in the driver's seat looking out the window. "Why aren't we going anywhere?" asked the girl.
"Well, I should have mentioned this before, but I'm actually a taxi driver, and the fare back to town is $25..."
A farmer was driving along the road with a load of horse manure. A little boy, playing in front of his house, saw him and called, "What've you got in your truck?"
"Horse manure," the farmer replied. "What are you going to do with it?" asked the little boy.
"Put it on strawberries," answered the farmer. "You ought to live here," the little boy advised him. "We put sugar and cream on ours."
That's it for today my little pickled pepper pickers. More tomorrow.
