When it’s Sunday (and it is) and you’re in a small town in southeast Georgia (and I am) and your router goes out (and it did), you don’t have a lot of options. In fact, the only real option is Walmart.
I really don’t want to complain about Walmart. I mean, they did have a good quality router in stock, and the price was pretty good. And, on it’s worst day, traffic at a small town Walmart is better than traffic at a large city, well, anything.
So, I got up to the register with my new router, and the cashier was prompted to ask me about an extended warranty. I was a little surprised. I picked up the box again, looked at it to make sure, and told her, “It comes with a lifetime warranty.”
“This is extra,” she offered.
“No, thanks,” I replied. “Lifetime will be long enough.”
I hope I don’t end up regretting my decision.
Up front, I want to say that I don’t have a boat. I’ve never had a boat. And I don’t intend to ever have a boat. I’m not a boat guy. But a lot of people are. Maybe you are. If you are, maybe you’ll want to play along. And, even if you aren’t, maybe you’ll want to play along, too. Because fun is fun.
Some people are kinda clever when it comes to naming a boat. And, since it was a Saturday, and I didn’t feel like getting out of the recliner, I pulled up The Facebook and started seeing what kinda nonsense people I know or are friends with and have never met are getting themselves into. And that’s how I ran across a list of 37 interesting boat names. And, since it was The Facebook, there were only 25 on the list I clicked through to. If math and spelling were a requirement, there would be no one on The Facebook.
Anyway, some of the boat names were kinda clever.
- Bacon in the Sun
- Ships & Giggles
- Master Baiter
- Fish & Chicks
Okay, some were kinda lame. But some were funny. But I think y’all can do better.
If you’ve had a fun or funny name on a boat, how about sharing it with us. Or, if you have an idea for a great boat name, share that. Could be fun.
Jonathan Banks, as fans of Breaking Bad or Better Call Saul know, plays the character Mike Ehrmantraut on those shows. He was appearing on Keith Olbermann’s show and said that Washington Redskins owner Dan Syder should change the team’s name because some people are offended. He went on to say that Snyder could make a lot of money on sales of new merchandise with a new nickname and logo.
“They will make a fortune [if they change the name]. And what is this guy? … He is Jewish, right — Snyder?”
When I read this report, I have to admit I was shocked.
I mean, did you know Keith Olbermann was still on TV?
