The answer is, “Your mother’s panty hose.”

I get a lot of these questions on Facebook lately. And they’re not from my FB friends, but they’re from responses that my FB friends have made to various questions posed by other FB people. You’ve seen them. They’re questions like… “What would I find if I looked on top of your fridge?” “What was…

“It shall be a symbol I respect.”

I respect and enjoy the original 12-issue limited comic series (and later graphic novel) (and later movie) (and later TV series) Watchmen. What Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons did with their comic story was nothing short of revolutionary and inspirational. Where else can you take re-interpretations of the old Charlton Comics superheroes and turn them…

Are you REALLY a Fox News reporter? Because something seems a bit off here…

Walter Masterson is a New York City-based comedian and satirist. And he’s been having a tremendous amount of fun lately in trolling the far-right. Why, who would suspect a man who’s wearing a button-down shirt and cargo shorts, all festooned with the stars and stripes, of being a provocateur? I mean, have you NEVER heard…

“Do you want a bacon egg and cheese, or a bacon egg and cheese?”

On occasion, I will stop at one of the local fast-food breakfast emporiums on the way to work. And yesterday, I felt the itch to order some food at Dunkin’ Donuts. Yes, I still call it Dunkin’ Donuts, as far as I’m concerned, the word “Donuts” is still part of the company’s name. Normally, I…

I would have settled for an 8.

Last Friday, I needed to burn off some energy. So I went to Rivers Casino in Schenectady for a little while. Now there’s a few things to remember when you go into any gambling establishment, whether it’s the horse track or the casino. Bet within your limits. Know when to stop. Know when to leave.…

Republican attention-whores are whoring themselves on Cameo.

I’ve used Cameo in the past, and it’s a great gift idea if you want to send someone a birthday greeting or something of that nature. I’ve used it twice – once when my son Kris underwent surgery (gave him positive messages from Shangela), and once when Kris was having a birthday (with birthday greetings…

I did not have “greatest tennis player of my generation replies to my Tweet” on my Bingo card.

So this happened. A little background. Yesterday, while perusing Twitter, I saw that tennis / human rights legend Martina Navratilova had retweeted a Twitter image from NBA veteran Rex Chapman. It was a magic trick in which a man was able to magically spread milk from one small cup to three larger cups. Now I…

Hey, when nature calls, you’d better answer.

A long time ago, I blogged about some dog agility competition videos – first I showed a dog raced through the obstacle course like there was a plate of Alpo at the end of the run, and then I showed a dog who was just taking his sweet time through the course like it was…
