PopeFrancis_ArgentineGovIs your first thought that I am taking the name in vain in a minor way that was even acceptable to my blue haired grams?  Of course there’s the more powerful version from the cross.   Read more…

No this won’t be one of those cutesy/annoying cat videos from YouTube.  It is about deviant slot machine behavior.  Again, no!  This isn’t about Sparky36. It is about a far more exciting personality type — an 87-year-old grandmother.

That title refers to we, us, my fellow Hoosiers of all stripes — at least according to the enlightened states, PACs, Gays, and even that paragon of virtue the Mayor of Chicago.  Seems the new state motto is Retards Am Us.  Read more…

Well, a different one from our pasteboard passion.   I am talking old computer games.  Who didn’t want to be Leisure Suit Larry.  OK, bad one to use.  But there were a bunch of them that we played at old TV resolution levels.

I did it on my computer with a CGA card — spiffy.  Others plugged in their Nintendo to their TV.   I think a Nintendo cartridge went for maybe $19.95 at the start and there were places you could sell or trade them for half the price.   As time progressed, prices and ability increased.  Today, you can plunk down $59.95.

But this Nintendo cartridge takes inflation to an all new level.

Where is Andrew Dice Clay when you need him.  OK, I think his humor is puerile stuff more suited to a movie like The Interview or eighth grade to collegiate humor — depending on the maturity of those involved.  But, hey! If you enjoy that stuff,  your problem, right? Read more…
