Filling In

By Jake 

Maddie had to go to a Hawaiian-style pig roast last night and had one too many lava flows. Imagine my surprise as my phone rings at 2 in the morning and Maddie is drunk on the other line asking me if I can cover the good morning article for today. At first I was hesitant, but Maddie assured me it would be worth my while and here I am.

A Haiku
Watch out for sandworms
They will try to swallow you
Beetlejuice, showtime

A Joke
How many screws does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

A Picture

Taken from my front yard during a snow storm.

Music Video

This is great for those who don't have a lot of time but still want to know what the top 25 best-selling songs of 2009 were. In under 5 minutes you'll know enough about pop music to impress a 10-year-old.

This is normally where Glenn (or somebody stealing his bit) would make a prediction. Instead of that, I'm just going to cut my losses and say goodbye to those kind enough to read this article but not comment on it. I'll see everybody else in the comment section or on Cam4.


  1. thanks for that music video, Jake. Now I can go into any discussion about pop culture and not feel like I'm about to be embarrassed by a lack of knowledge on the subject. I guess I could've just blamed any stupid thing I said on the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol tho. ;-)

  2. I couldn't tell if you meant showtime or 'Showtime' in the haiku. Nice joke&pic!

  3. I meant "It's showtime!" which is Beetlejuice's catchphrase, but you say it all profound and breathy because it's a haiku.

  4. Don't think of it as someone "stealing" my bit. I give predictions for the whole world to enjoy.

    I am disappointed the light bulb joke did not find a way to be racist.

  5. that picture is very religious to me. speaking of religion, the real reason i couldn't do GM today is because i gave up being funny for lent.

  6. some girls can be funny, like whoopi goldberg.
