Good Morning [Thur Jan 22]

By Jake

Good morning! Jake here filling in for Glenn. Glenn is on holiday today. He went to the Dells to check out a great Tony Bartlett show. Hopefully he'll be back tomorrow with an indepth review. I was at the Dells once and found it to be lacking, unless you love sliding down tubes into water. I used to, but then I grew up like Tom Hanks did in Big. I didn't literally do it the same way he did, I just naturally grew up into an adult.



Today's Weather


Things are looking a little warmer for today, at least where I am. We're finally going to be above 30 in the Chicago area. That's great. It will be nice to see the snowmen melting like an atomic bomb just went off, their icy skin dripping to the salted pavemnt in a horrific display of carnage. Enjoy the "warm" weather while you can.

Today's word of the days (courtesy of Meriam-Webster) is:
reconcile • \REK-un-syle\

1 a : to restore to friendship or harmony
b : settle, resolve

*2 : to cause to submit to or accept something unpleasant

3 a : to check (a financial account) against another for accuracy
b : to account for

Example Sentence:
I have reconciled myself to the fact that my two best friends may never be fond of each other.


In a way this word of the day is very apt. This blog is very much about reconciliation. It's a group of people who, for years hated each other, and then finally came together to write humorous articles about an array of topics. Some articles are satirical and some are more informative.

Today's Music Video of the Day comes from LL Cool J and it's called "Big Ole Butt."



This video will hopefully remind us to "scope the booty like a big game hunter" throughout the day. Hopefully, it doesn't inspire any of our hetero/bi/lesbian readers to leave their current girlfriends for women with bigger rears. I know I won't be, but my girlfriend has mucho junk in the trunk.

Readers, have a great day! For the ladies out there (men, you can read this part too. It might be applicable, but it's not meant for you): please keep your chin up and remember that you are funny, you just have low self esteem and think you aren't. This is a serious problem that Glenn and I have meditated on yesterday. He may have an article in the works about this very problem (this is what we call a teaser).

Good morning and enjoy your day! And for the love of God, don't forget to make those restaurant reservations.

  2. Maddie, I'm glad I convinced you that you're funny. Maybe you can write an article for us now?

  3. Yes you are. You just have low self-esteem. Your video game blog is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

  4. Yeah, but you're laughing AT me, not WITH me. There's a difference.

  5. Caitlin, you are so wrong. I find it cute and endearing. There are things in it that are embarrassing, sure, but don't we all have those things in our closet?

    The only thing I laugh at you on that blog is the Ocarina post. Everything else I find cute and funny.

  6. I honestly had a dream about Tommy Bartlett last night. He would let me get on the gyrotron because I was too big!!

  7. Tommy Bartlett is an a-hole. I voted him Wisconsin's biggest asshole in 1997 and 2001.
