Overheard in the Bedroom:

The TeeWee in Bobbi's bedroom, used as an alarm clock, had come on with the volume turned to eleven. I couldn't help but overhear that after an automobile accident in town, someone was rushed to the hospital in "serious condition". How come nobody's ever rushed to the hospital in hilarious condition? Or whimsical condition?

.............................................................................................

So Patrick Swayze has shuffled off his mortal coil. Who will defend us from Cuban paratroopers now?

..............................................................................................

Also according to the TeeWee, Whitney Houston is going to be on Oprah's show today. I would pay good money to see Whitney accidentally stray too close to Oprah and get devoured like a drumstick in a shark tank. (I was always afraid that was going to happen to one of those Haitian kids who got within arm's reach of Sally Struthers during those charity commercials.)

Apparently Jay Leno is not dead yet.

It's just like Star Trek. Why don't they ever set their phasers to tickle? or Bring on the Funk? or Rock the Casbah? or as Bobbi X so appropriately asks, "Phase"?

Sam Elliott. A left cross, a stop kick and a right elbow--Sam will lead us to victory just as he did at the Double Deuce and then dance with the lady doctor to "All my exs live in Texas."

Double Deuces!

Shootin' Buddy

Serious condition! Oh brother, first thing in the morning, too! You realize I'll be laughing about this all morning at work, right?

Apparently a a fellow named Chris Hemsworth, from Australia.

At least in the 2010 version of Red Dawn. God Help us.

It's a shame. Patrick Swayze seemed like one of the few real good guys in Hollywood. He was married to the same woman for 34 years.

And why do they ask for positive ID at the bank? Like the ID has to look like we all just got out of an Anthony Robbins seminar. I always wonder if they'll accept my driver's license, with the photo being all somber and negative and all.

Barry White is black, and Jack Black is white.

(Taken from a buddy's Facebook status, I can't claim credit...)

Bud Black was white, and Frank White was black (hat tip: Bill James).

An acquaintance from years back, Eric White (a "White Power" skinhead, though no one ever seemed to get the joke) was black, but Black Francis, lead singer of the Pixies, is white.

Well I will give my vote to Ted Nugent. I mean who else would have more fun shooting Marxists out of the sky? C'mon!

The readers of this blog? I get the feeling that we are collectively more heavily armed than a Soviet airborne army.

There's even a song with similar lyrics, by bloodhound gang.

"No I'm not black like Barry White, no I'm white like Frank Black is."

You're the only person who has mentioned his connection with "Red Dawn" in all the stories I've seen about his death. I guess the media, along with Hollywood would like to forget that little movie.

Side note; was talking to Daughter at University last night. They will be watching "Red Dawn" in one of her classes when the subject matter is "revolution". I expect a lot of young Yankee visitors to these parts are in for a shock. :-)

I think that's your job, Tam. C'mon! You know you want to. You'd look good in looted Soviet camo.

Well, we know Charlie Sheen ain't worth chit, what with his 9/11 theories. I wouldn't trust the judgement of somebody who divorced Denise Richards anyway.
Wait a minute, where's Chuck Norris? He's got experience! Even if he does want to be the next President of Texas (I'd vote for him for that too!)
