Thursday Night Open Thread

I haven’t trashed Obama in a while. I don’t know why. Let’s fix that now.

Obama wasn’t the first person that thought he was the Emperor of the United States. You may have heard of Norton. If not, this’ll be a treat. If you have, it’ll probably still be a treat.

It’s your turn to rule. You control the flow of conversation now. It’s Thursday Night Open Thread.

Wednesday Night Open Thread

Comedians these days just aren’t as funny as comedians used to be.

Maybe it’s the language. Sure, not all comedians use salty language in their comedy routines, but many do. And those that do are the ones I’m talking about when I say that comedians today aren’t as funny as comedians used to be. But, I could be wrong.

One of the all-time greats was Bob Hope. I remember watching his specials on TV when I was a child. Sure, his humor was silly and stupid — not Three Stooges stupid, but still some of it was stupid. But, he was funny.

Remember hearing the strains to “Thanks for the Memory” and know that it was time to go into the TV room and watching an hour or so of something that had funny stuff? Well, I do.

I always through of that song as the Bob Hope Theme. But, it was an actual song, as I learned when I was old enough to ask such things. But, I’ve never seen the movie it’s from.

[The YouTube]

I need to check that movie out some time. Right now, though, I’m awaiting some more current, profanity-free entertainment. From you. Because it’s Wednesday Night Open Thread. Your turn to take over and lead the conversation. Some of it better be funny. Or we’ll send you to bed before Joey Heatherton appears on stage with Bob Hope.

Obama would never have dreamed of thinking of families. He gravitates towards communist dictators for a reason.

Tuesday Night Open Thread

Some people hate growing old. Me? I embrace it.

Sure, what I once could do all night, takes me all night to do once. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Some of you understand what it’s like getting (or being) old. Some of you need a block of instruction.

[The YouTube]

What never gets old is reading your comments on the posts here. They’re great. That’s why we started this nightly Open Thread thingy. It’s a chance to read your comments, but let you pick the topic. Or topics.

Monday Night Open Thread

It’s been hot this week. I’ve spent a lot of time in air conditioning. I’ll find out just how much when I get my bill from Georgia Power.

I wonder sometimes just how hot it can get. Then I remember the video from a couple of nights ago. Hasn’t quite been that hot. Still, I’m using the electricity to stay cool. And maybe watch a movie I like.

[The YouTube]

Maybe ManBearPig could lead a Global WarmingTM conference. Every time they have one, it snows. Maybe just a one-day conference, so it would just cool down a little.

So, tonight, I’ll open the Monday Night Open Thread with the old standard, “Hot enough for you?” Answer that, or come up with something else.

Sunday Night Open Thread

I lost some weight when I was in the hospital late last year. I kinda let that kick-start me into a diet.

Down 30 pounds so far. Nothing outstanding, just slow steady progress, a little bit each week. Maybe I ought to get serious and try some new, wonderful diet, huh?

Saturday Night Open Thread

A few days ago, I had the opportunity — if you call it that — to spend a lot of time driving between court houses, libraries, cemeteries and such in some counties in southeast Georgia. Yeah, genealogy stuff.

Anyway, the outside walking around cemeteries paid off, in that it helped narrow down some stuff, when the info was combined with stuff we got from the court house visits. But, the walking around cemeteries was a little uncomfortable because it was a little hot.

But, I shouldn’t complain. It’s been hotter.

Now, though, sit back and relax. It’s time for Saturday Night Open Thread. Tell a joke, share a link, whatever you like.

Cartoon of the Day – Quiz


[A. F. Branco]

I have to disagree with Mr. Branco just a little. I’m in favor of the filibuster. If the GOP Senators were truly interested in getting things done — and they’re not, which is the actual problem — they’d let the Democrats filibuster. Let them sit up all night, or several nights in a row, talking and talking. They can outlast them and pass the proper legislation anyway. That’d really tick the Democrats off.

Wednesday Night Open Thread

When is movie night? It’s not tonight, at least, not for me. It’s been a long day — started around 3:30 this morning, so I’m probably already asleep.

Of course, most of the time, stuff I write reads like someone was asleep when it was written, so there you go.

Anyway, when movie night does roll around, I’m going to watch Space Mutiny, the gosh-awful film from the early 1980s that was riffed in Season 8 of MST3K.

Why? No good reason, as I explained over at my little blog.

You know what else I do for no good reason? I write posts that service no purpose but to left you take the stage. Makes my life easy. Besides, you guys are really funny. Or clever. Or interesting. Anyway, I enjoy reading the stuff you write. And, yes, I do read these open thread posts. I don’t always comment on them, but I do read the comments, because they’re fun. So, maybe I do have a good reason after all.

Which, of course, puts all the pressure on you to write something, eh? Well, as it’s Wednesday Night Open Thread, it’s time for you to shine.
