It started with a simple cheer: Hooray! But, sadly, things got out of hand quickly. Some people would give three cheers: Hip Hip Hooray! (Whatever happened to double cheers, I don’t know. And where did the Hips come from?) After that, people started five cheers… seven cheers… twelve cheers… Some pe...

The escalator was invented long before there was an electric motor capable of powering it. Elephants were used to power the demonstration models, but nobody wanted a basement filled with those things. They’re big, smelly, and expensive to feed. Plus, elephant poop. This made the escalator a really ...

And Tweets about it. “Did you change the thing before we left?” I ask. “Yes!” she shouts, and Tweets some more complains about low battery power. So, I gave her ...

In Paris, hundreds of Muslims and Arabs assaulted Jews at a synagogue and shouted “Jews leave France!” The Jews barricaded themselves in the synagogue for safety from the angry mob. A synagogue is not an embassy or state institution. It is a religious institution. Protesting a synagogue by definiti...

The trays they have in the school cafeteria are the same as the trays in the prison. I know it’s just a coincidence, but with the dropout rate and the gang problem, I guess it’s good to have some stability in their lives. Me, I teach. At the school during the week, and at the prison over weekends a...

When I go to the grocery store, I like to put bags of baby carrots in other people’s carts. I do this because if you don’t find a good home for baby carrots, they grow up unloved and without discipline, and they become juvenile delinquent carrots. Or worse… they end up dead, and their bodies are ch...

On Monday, we roll the garbage out from the garage to the curb. On Tuesday, garbage men come by to collect the garbage. On Wednesday, the city sends people around to fine those who do not roll their empty garbage cans back into their garages. Sometimes, neighbors will be nice and do that for you Tu...

Just be careful how you put it in the envelope to keep the message from getting smeared and ruined. Then, be sure to keep the shit somewh...

I did one of those online surveys that told me that I was 97 percent evil. What did I do wrong? Where did I go wrong? Not the 97 percent, mind you. I’m worried about the 3 percent good. How am I going to get a management position in Hell with that much good in me? 3 percent good gets you graveyard ...

Scientists say that Area 25 in the brain can be directly electrically stimulated to lift deep depression in most patients. It feels like a dark cloud is being cleared away, or a heavy weight lifted from their chest. When the stimulation ends, the cloud and the weight eventually return, but they’re ...

Then he goes up the beanstalk and lies to the giant’s wife, robs the giant blind, and then kills the giant? The dude sounds like ...

H.L Mencken said that Puritanism is the haunting fear that someone, somewhere may be happy. As first, I thought that this was Cherophobia, the fear of happiness and gaity, but H.L Mencken was very specific about the happiness being in others, not the Puritans themselves, which is quite an understan...

You really shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, the saying goes. But if a book is covered with wickedly sharp spikes, you should consider buying the Kindle version. The same goes for books that have a cover that is on fire, although most bookstores won’t stock books that are on fire. And Amazon can...

Problem is, those Gates were made a long time ago, and they weren’t meant to pass a Cadillac, so it was a tight fit. And Elvis, well, he had a problem w...

Superstitious Bob constantly struck matches for good luck. The casinos didn’t like the idea of a guy striking matches all the time, like some kind of arsonist goon from the mafia, so they threw him out. Same with the horse track. And the nearby dog track. The dog fighting pit regulars threatened to...

After two weeks, the coach said that they really ought to shave, but the players were superstitious and ref...
