Also, we were very good at keeping this a secret, but Florida Bill flew out to join us in Gibraltar. His company was more fun that a barrel of Barbary macaques…

Not that I follow college football or anything. But I did go to the University of Connecticut for medical school.
But last time I checked, the UCONN huskies were ranked higher than both Alabama and Auburn.
Roll Huskies Roll
I spent much of the weekend sleeping, or doing housework. For some reason, I slept until nearly noon on Sunday, watched half of the Bears loss to lowly the Detroit Lions (Greise looked more like Mike Brady than Tom Brady this week) then fell asleep again to wake up and also catch a little of the Boston (as predicted) sweep of the Rockies. Is it the Cubbies turn yet?

You’ve got to love the military, and God bless them all.

This story about a truck, bought on Craig’s List, with over 500,000 miles, that has an axle failure and then the owner sues anyone who ever owned it AND WON, just can’t be true.
Now here is a TV show that even Feste will likely watch.
I got a kick out of Sioux City Iowa’s airport code: SUX. I think that speaks volumes about Sioux City.
California spent most of the week on fire. Those Santa Ana winds can be wicked. I am, once again, glad we escaped in 1995.
If you need a little time to kill, I recommend that you visit this article about a columbarium. I found it interesting and realized quickly, I do not want to be interred there.
We’ve seen some good headlines, and this one qualifies: FLORIDA MAN SHOT THREE TIMES, BUT STILL MAKES FLIGHT TO NEW YORK. What a guy.
They are telling Miss England, Georgia Horsely to fatten up for the Miss World competition. If you look closely, you can see pubes sticking from the top of her bikini…I say she needs a shave, not a cheeseburger (although she could use one of those too).
I couldn’t figure out if Luis Miguel Aldana was a Fucktard or some kind of hero. I think it is the former. Maybe if he went to work and reduced Columbia’s unemployment rate (over 10%), that would be a help to his family. Instead, he wants to wear a Halloween get-up and lives on the neighbor’s couch. OK, I am just gonna say it, he is a Fucktard. Kid Rock is also a Fucktard this week. First, he is NO Southern Boy; he is from Detroit and that makes him a damn Yankee. Secondly, if you got that kind of dough, you eat at the Waffle House? I also couldn’t figure out if this guy who cut off his own junk, and flushed one of his testicles, was doing a good deed or just being a Fucktard. I think he is the latter. Since he is a pedophile, I am glad he cut off his nuts, but it also shows that he IS nuts. It took no figuring whatsoever to conclude that Aleksandr Y. Pichushkin is a very big Fucktard. He confessed to killing 63 people, just one shy of his goal of 64 to match the number of squares on a chess board. Maniac indeed, but at least he got his victims good and liquored up before bashing them in the head or drowning them in the sewer. I have been lax in nominating Lisa Montgomery as a Fucktard of the week. Please forgive me. She deserves to die.
I just loved this picture of a zebra and a dolphin from the BlogLord’s (welcome back BTW, where are our pics from Spain??) former hometown of Valencia, CA (which is apparently not on fire). It is something you just don’t see everyday.
The Sox beat the Rox again in game two of the World Series. Looks like another Boston sweep.
Happy healthy weekends to all.

Josh Beckett was stellar. He struck out the first four batters (nine in all) gave up only four hits and one run. The Red Sox on the other hand seemed to hit at will and provided one of the most lopsided game in Series history.
Can you say sweep? They’ve done it before you know…

Would you stalk this man:
He is a strange duck, but anyone who would stalk him is certainly stranger danger.
