The “Lesbian Mafia” are coming for you!!

I cannot believe I’m actually blogging about this. But it’s too funny to pass up. So, in Yelm, Washington, somewhere near Olympia and an hour’s drive south of Seattle, a man was arrested after a fight in a Walmart parking lot. He insisted that he had been attacked by the “Lesbian Mafia,” who had conscripted…

My “Beauty and the Beast” recites poetry in New York City.

Last week I played this game of “Spectrum Roulette,” where I went through all the cable channels on the upper band of my Spectrum cable service. You know, the ones that just show vintage TV series and the like – GET TV, ME TV, COMET TV, etc. Oh, the Decades channel is running one of…

Well, not “marinating,” per se, but brining it. Letting the chicken soak in pickle juice for up to 24 hours. Well, let’s see. What if…
