Have you ever checked out I’m Shakin’ My Head? It’s one of the blogs I have linked on the left sidebar. You know how things can be funny and sad at the same time? That’s this site. The blogmistress, a 24-year-old student in Missouri, offers her commentary on pictures and videos of real-life stuff that leaves her, well, shakin’ her head. I love this chick—she has her head screwed on straight and tells it as she sees it. Take a look.
Anyway, a few things have made me shake my head lately. Like the other day on the way to work I saw a guy flick his cigarette butt out the window. I have a million pet peeves, but smokers who think the world is their friggin’ ashtray is toward the top of my list. Pigs. That alone was enough to get me going, but the guy was driving a goddamn Prius!
The next item is courtesy of my brother-in-law, Russ. Seems he was approached recently in downtown Albany by a dude asking for spare change. This poverty-stricken indigent had a brand new pack of smokes in his hand and a bluetooth device in his ear. Of course, Russ couldn't say NO fast enough.
The last thing that’s making me shake my head is also a lesson in search engine optimization for all the bloggers out there. Back in May, I had a post entitled “I guess I’ll have to kick Mom’s ass.” Well, you wouldn’t believe how many pervs have landed on that page by Googling things like “mom’s ass,” “sexy my mom’s ass,” and my favorite, “momy ass” [sic]. Almost all are from foreign countries. Imagine their disappointment when they land on a post describing a libidinous Scrabble tournament with my almost 75-year-old mother. In Boise, Idaho. Yeah, that's what we Americans do for a sexy-ass good time--we play Scrabble.
I realize that including the phrases above will serve only to perpetuate the problem and is sure to result in more hits to today’s post. So to satisfy these licentious rakes all over the world, I give you… Mom.
Well, she is kind of hot.
