Do they even make yo-yo’s anymore?

i remember in the early 1950s when they were a new thing, and a Duncan factory salesman demonstrated fancy tricks with the toy at the NCO club in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

I never could get the hang of the damn things.

I just bought a box of Sugar Babies (the caramel-based candy, not a container of prostitutes) on impulse at the checkout lane. 

I haven't eaten them in probably 20ish years, and while it's possible that I got a lousy box, they were nowhere near as good as I remember. 

...but holy fucking shit, are Milk Duds 100x better than I remember them being. 

Do yourself a favor and pick up a box next time you have the opportunity.

Sooner or later, North Carolina is going to legalize pot. When they do, not only will I grow it, but I will also market a brand new product: cannabis infused laxatives.

For Shits and Giggles

How high were you when you came up with that idea?

I have a little regret that the excellent golden yellow Duncan yo-yo did not make the trip back to our house after my mom passed away. Our children were allowed to pick one or two items to bring back, and no one picked the click clacks either. I have to wonder if the click clacks sold at the garage sale (held by a family member) because I'd heard they were outlawed- - just looked online and yep, banned in 1985. I had a pair of purple and a pair of green.

Over half the wrestlers from Wrestlemania III (the last one I watched) are dead.  Most of them died before 60.  And most of them died from shit you wouldn't expect (not from steroids or shit like that).  Car accidents, overdoses, bullets, etc.  All kinds of shit that screams murder.

What kind of a dick head do you have to be to be talking on your iPhone on speaker mode in the United club at 6:30am...?

What movie was that where somebody lets some deathly rotting pile of ass fart out their butt and then it wafts over to some guy talking on his cell phone and the guy shouts out, "Who the hell farted?  It's disgusting...I AM HERE ON BUSINESS!"  

That's what I pictured from the above two posts.  It was some barely funny comedy from about 10-20 years ago.

I finally, after about a decade, figured out the answer to a question from my youth.  I swear I had previously googled and came up with nothing.

 

I had a memory of a cartoon as a kid that had a King and "Court Jester" villain.  The King would always yell at the Court Jest named "Shecky".  I swore it was the Smurfs.

Turns out it was a short lived Hanna Barbera ripoff called Biskitts. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Biskitts

 

It's like a splinter has been pulled out of my brain.

Goddamn selective homosexuality. Just opened an email from my bank. I could have sworn they told me that in order to access my statement, I should dick the link below.

Fixed.

Haven’t you ever seen what happens when you’re grilling steaks and the fat drips onto the coals?

You eating people again?
