Walmart Strikes Again


New ones! Walmart strikes again

I’m scared..where do these people live????

.

It’s like a permanent lumbar support system. By the way, how do you even get hair to cling/mold/bind/form/shape into that? I’m just asking so that I don’t accidentally do it.

Much to my, and I’m sure everyone else’s, surprise we have a challenger to the Old lady from 8 Crazy Nights look alike also, full disclosure I’m a little frightened.

I have a feeling her kids are always on their best behavior. I guess that’s what happens when you have a professional spanker for a mother.

Don’t you hate it when you confuse your washing machine and your kids Spiral Splatter Creations Kit? I know I do.

OH SNAP! That’s how Willy the Pimp does black and white son! You fake pimps better come correct next time you wanna challenge the legend.

Ohhh, if only your parents were given that advice.

Okay, I know the shirt has strings, and I’m no Louis Vuitton, but I’m pretty sure those strings weren’t designed to hang on for dear life.

Back in my day, we didn’t have these fancy Child Labor laws. You already picked up as much dirt and dust off of the floor with your feet as you could, so it’s time to start the full body sweep now boy.

C’mon cross-dressers! If you are going to wear clothing of the opposite sex, at least give it your best effort. I mean, you obviously took the time to pick out that cute little skirt, but then BAM you ruin it with those beat up old black sneakers. I never thought I’d say this, but Sir, go put on some heels!

So, what do you do when you want to wear a different colored shirt?

Hello Kitty, goodbye dignity.

Did you look at that shirt before you put it on and honestly think it would fit, or did you put it on in 1997 when it did fit and just decided you were set for life?

All you get is a peek.. You gotta work for it if you wanna see more! Vavoom!

You know, I always had a sneaking suspicion Justin Timberlake was taking credit for someone else’s work.

The years may come and go, but styling and profiling never change.

A one piece thong and jorts. Just saying it out loud sounds awful.

Do you have any idea how tiring it can be putting on purple sweatpants like this? Im going to take a nap right now just from thinking about it.

For my own sanity, I have to assume that she is shoplifting pork roasts in her shirt. Simply because there is no possible way those are what you think they are. They can’t be, I refuse to believe it. Don’t try to reason with me.

I guarantee that nobody in the country HAS ever, CAN ever, or WILL ever rock out as hard as these two in Wal-Mart. End of story.

Not quite sure what all is going on here, but I can tell you this, none of its good.

Let’s all take a minute to appreciate the irony of jamming the healthy choice down the back of your ass.

I like talking to her because she always seems so surprised and interested in what I’m saying. That, and because she kinda looks like the old lady in Adam Sandlers Eight Crazy Nights.

Now go on! Get up there and get me my damn Fanta!

Well if the Cowboys want to call themselves America s Team, they need to have a true American cheerleader. I think we have found her.

You kidding me? Honestly, are you kidding me? I mean really, you couldn’t find pink gloves? The lack of effort is noted.

No need to wrap up that bologna, I’ll just put it in my trash bag shirt.

California -v- Arizona


CALIFORNIA: The Governor of California is jogging with his dog along a
nature trail. A coyote jumps out, bites the Governor and attacks his dog.1. The Governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie “Bambi” and
then realizes he should stop; the coyote is only doing what is natural.

2. He calls Animal Control. Animal Control captures coyote and bills the
State $200 testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it to Arizona .

3. He calls a veterinarian. The vet collects the dead dog and bills the
State $200 testing it for diseases.

4. The Governor goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting checked for
diseases from the coyote and on getting his bite wound bandaged.

5. The running trail gets shut down for 6 months while Fish & Game conducts
a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is free of dangerous animals.

6. The Governor spends $5 million in state funds implementing a “coyote
awareness” program for residents of the area.

7. The State Legislature spends $2 million to study how to better treat
rabies and how to permanently eradicate the disease throughout the world.

8. The Governor’s security agent is fired for not stopping the attack
somehow and for letting the Governor attempt to intervene.

9. Additional cost to State of California: $75,000 to hire and train a new
security agent with additional special training re: the nature of coyotes.

10. PETA protests the coyote’s relocation and files suit against the State
of Arizona.

ARIZONA : The Governor of Arizona is jogging with her dog along a nature
trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks her dog.

1. The Governor shoots the coyote with her state-issued pistol and keeps
jogging. The Governor has spent $0.50 on a .45 AC P hollow point cartridge..

2. The buzzards eat the dead coyote.

And that, my friends, is why California is broke.

Isn’t it sad the media can tell us all about the crap that goes on, but ignores the GOOD people. If a movie star or politician stubs their toe we have to hear about it for days!!!

Subject: A Great Lady Has Passed

 

Pamela Murphy, widow of WWII hero and actor, Audie Murphy, died peacefully at her home on April 8, 2010. She was the widow of the most decorated WWII hero and actor, Audie Murphy, and established her own distinctive 35 year career working as a patient liaison at the Sepulveda Veterans Administration hospital, treating every veteran who visited the facility as if they were a VIP.

Any soldier or Marine who came into the hospital got the same special treatment from her. She would walk the hallways with her clipboard in hand making sure her boys got to see the specialist they needed.

If they didn’t, watch out. Her boys weren’t Medal of Honor recipients or movie stars like Audie, but that didn’t matter to Pam. They had served their country. That was good enough for her. She never called a veteran by his first name. It was always “Mister.” Respect came with the job.

“Nobody could cut through VA red tape faster than Mrs. Murphy,” said veteran Stephen Sherman, speaking for thousands of veterans she befriended over the years. “Many times I watched her march a veteran who had been waiting more than an hour right into the doctor’s office. She was even reprimanded a few times, but it didn’t matter to Mrs. Murphy. “Only her boys mattered. She was our angel.”

Audie Murphy died broke in a plane crash in 1971, squandering millions of dollars on gambling, bad investments, and yes, other women. “Even with the adultery and desertion at the end, he always remained my hero,” Pam told me.

She went from a comfortable ranch-style home in Van Nuys where she raised two sons to a small apartment – taking a clerk’s job at the nearby VA to support herself and start paying off her faded movie star husband’s debts. At first, no one knew who she was. Soon, though, word spread through the VA that the nice woman with the clipboard was Audie Murphy’s widow. It was like saying General Patton had just walked in the front door. Men with tears in their eyes walked up to her and gave her a hug.

“Thank you,” they said, over and over.

The first couple of years, I think the hugs were more for Audie’s memory as a war hero. The last 30 years, they were for Pam.

One year I asked her to be the focus of a Veteran’s Day column for all the work she had done. Pam just shook her head no.

“Honor them, not me,” she said, pointing to a group of veterans down the hallway. “They’re the ones who deserve it.”

The vets disagreed. Mrs. Murphy deserved the accolades, they said. Incredibly, in 2002, Pam’s job was going to be eliminated in budget cuts. She was considered “excess staff.” “I don’t think helping cut down on veterans’ complaints and showing them the respect they deserve, should be considered excess staff,” she told me. Neither did the veterans. They went ballistic, holding a rally for her outside the VA gates. Pretty soon, word came down from the top of the VA. Pam Murphy was no longer considered “excess staff.”

She remained working full time at the VA until 2007 when she was 87.

“The last time she was here was a couple of years ago for the conference we had for homeless veterans,” said Becky James, coordinator of the VA’s Veterans History Project. Pam wanted to see if there was anything she could do to help some more of her boys. Pam Murphy was 90 when she died last week. What a lady.

I know you will pass this one on…..

Fourth of July


FOURTH OF JULY

Sunday

raining

thunder booming

cannon shots

from distant hollows

of mixed color clouds

great grey white whales

laying low

smooth curved tops

twisted tops at

midline mixing pots

bottoms lay in distant trees

swimming slow

in shallow waters

beached in struggle

while giving birth

wetting the land

tickling the earth

groaning labor sounds

rumbling out

natures morning show

this Independence Day

my dogs barking in reply

in complaint

not liking thunder

their dreams interrupted

by the approaching storm

searching for a place to hide

beneath my desk.
