Mr. Chuckles

You Are a Chuckle

Your laughter type is friendly and open. You laugh at many things, but you don't go overboard.

You appreciate a good joke or a funny situation. You have a pleasant sense of humor and appreciate comedy of all sorts.

That being said, you're not a joker or class clown. You don't seek out laughter or have a need to make others laugh.

Your favorite kind of laughter comes from a fun time with friends.

Cheeseburger Onion Rings

Long Time

Wow, just noticed how long it had been since my last post.  In my defense, I was offline for the better part of the last five days because my modem was fried by a nearby lightning strike.   I was relieved it was just the modem and not my computer and especially since my 'puter and several peripherals are on the same circuit.

Wussy AT&T modem, anyway.

Anyway...it's not as though I really do much with this pathetic excuse for a blog nor that I have loads of visitors to keep entertained.  It's always only been a "hobby", something to do to amuse myself.  It's really just an ersatz means of being creative, typing out some stupid words or embedding a video and pressing "Send" and having it post and then looking at it and saying to myself "Wow, I created something."

I'm sure it's something a trained ape could do.

I don't get all that many unique visitors and the last time I checked, this blog was ranked something like 12,456,738th in the world, so....

All that said, if anyone has been disappointed by my lack of posts, I promise I'll try to do better.  For those of you who have been disappointed by a lack of any creative content....well, keep checking in because I might accidentally post something worth reading.

Not that I ever have, but there's always hope, huh?

Off the Map

While trying to amend the URL of the post below (to take out the Facebook appendage reference in the link) I stumbled across the Atlas Obscura 404 page: (the first part of it is a screen shot, but the "here" link will work)

There aren't even monsters here. If you want monsters, check here.

The McFarthest Spot

What's so special about this place in S. Dakota?

According to Atlas Obscura, it is the McFarthest Spot -the farthest you can be in the continental US from a McDonald's location.

From the website:

Geographically speaking, in the lower 48 United States it is impossible to get farther away from a McDonald's restaurant than this location in South Dakota. From the McFarthest Spot it would take 145 miles driving (only 120 miles as the crow flies) before a visitor could devour their next two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.

404 Flood

Not only is it flooding here in Texas, it's flooding on the Internet with broken links.

Found on Brit+Co.

Peaceful Easy Feeling - The Eagles

Live on BBC 1973

Bottoms Up!

From the  photo BOUNCING.gif archives:

A physician claimed that the following are actual comments made by his patients (predominately male) while he was performing their Colonoscopies:

1. "Take it easy Doc, you're boldly going where no man has gone before!"

2. "Find Amelia Earhart yet?"

3. "Can you hear me NOW?"

4. "Oh boy! That was sphincterrific!"

5. "Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?"

6. "You know in Arkansas we're now legally married."

7. "Any sign of the trapped miners,  Chief?"

8. "You put your left hand in, you take your left hand out..."

9. "Hey, now I know how a Muppet feels!"

10. "If your hand doesn't fit, you must quit!"

11. "Hey Doc, let me know if you find my dignity."

12. "You used to be an executive at Enron didn't you?"

And the best one of them all...

13. "Could you write a note for my wife saying that my head is in fact not up there?"
