(Drinking) Holiday Memories

March 5, 2008

With St. Patrick’s Day approaching, I can’t help but think of prior adventures with the Ultimate Jello Shot – which I first attempted (with excellent results) on St. Patrick’s Day a few years back.

Ahh, yes – good times, good food, the strongest damn Jello shots possible, socially accepted public drunkenness – really, does it get any better?

I think not.

Anyway, whenever I hear or think of Jello, I can’t help but think of Bill Cosby – and when I think of Bill Cosby, I (naturally) think of this image:


Happy Humpday!


Happy “Cheney Shot a Man in the Face” Day!

February 11, 2008

Awww, how time flies…it’s hard to believe it’s already been a year…



On February 11, 2006, U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot Harry Whittington, a 78-year-old Texas attorney, while participating in a quail hunt on a ranch in Kenedy County, Texas. Whittington was shot in the face, neck, and upper torso with birdshot pellets from a 28-gauge Perazzi shotgun.

First public news of the incident was called in to the Corpus Christi Caller-Times on February 12, 2006, by ranch owner Katharine Armstrong. [1] The Bush administration disclosed the shooting incident to the public the afternoon of February 12. Local authorities released a report on the shooting on February 16, 2006 and witness statements on February 22. All of the witness statements conflict with the Sheriff‘s reports over the time of the shooting. (see ‘Time of Shooting’ below).

On February 14, 2006, Whittington suffered a non-fatal “silent” heart attack and atrial fibrillation due to at least one lead-shot pellet lodged in or near his heart. [2] Cheney did not speak publicly about the incident until February 15 in an interview with Fox News.

It’s Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Birthday!

January 30, 2008


There are the obvious reasons why contemporary historians would argue FDR as the greatest president in the history of the United States: he put the kibosh on the Great Depression with his New Deal program. His “arsenal of democracy” prevailed over Nazi Germany. He restructured the federal government to where it protected the little guy instead of Big Business. Yet Roosevelt had accomplished an even greater feat.  He made the most sensible, heroic, and utterly compassionate executive decision ever by anyone who resided at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

He repealed Prohibition.

Before you go out tonight to celebrate this brilliant legacy, make sure you read up a bit on the man – I would suggest a quick trip over to Modern Drunkard Magazine – specifically to this fine article:

It’s Frank Sinatra’s Birthday

December 12, 2007

So be sure to celebrate appropriately – I’d suggest some Jack Daniels…
