Not So Kosher For Passover

Yes, I am Jewish. No I don’t keep Kosher…never have…never plan to. There are a lot of folks out there in the world, that when they found out you are Jewish, they just assume you don’t eat pork products. Essentially they are ignorant.

Viagra Model Daze

Can we talk about ED…erectile dysfunction. Major Major Disclaimer (and if my kids are reading this, hide your eyes): ED is not a problem for me but I do get big kick out of those Viagra TV commercials.

Postal Service Daze 2016

About a year ago, I wrote this blog post about issues I was having with the US postal service:

The Bible as the Official State Book

Yes, you read that title right. The State of Tennessee, in all of their divine wisdom, has voted to name The Holy Bible as the official State Book of Tennessee. Just when you think the religious right could not get anymore out of touch with the principles our nation was built on, someone comes up with this.

An actual mock-up of the possible entrance to Native Roots Field at Mile High Stadium.

Getting High at Mile High

I’m a big believer in the theory that “you can’t make this shit up.” The sporting goods chain Sports Authority has declared bankruptcy. Creates a small problem for the Denver Broncos who play at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium. Those naming rights sell for millions of dollars, so I’m sure the Broncos want to move fast in getting someone else to pony up the big dough.

Oh Cluck Me!

Do you hear that clucking sound coming from Casa de Berk? If you listen carefully, you can hear it. “Cluck…cluck….oh cluck me.” That’s the sound of the empty nest as Zach has left the cozy comforts of suburban New Jersey for the motherland – Brooklyn.

Who’s The Bigger A’hole?

Who’s The Bigger A’hole?

Over the years, I have made no secret about my love/hate relationship with folks at the local supermarket. Hate them because they can be such assholes. Love them because they can be such assholes, which is great fodder for this blog. Last Sunday’s visit to the ShopRite was no exception

It started in the parking lot, upon arrival. When I pulled into my spot, about 30 feet from the little cart holder, you know…where they ask you to return your cart to, there was a cart in the spot…30 feet away from where it should be. Asshole!

Then there’s the folks who think the most convenient spot to stop is by the door right when you get into the ShopRite, basically clogging up the whole entry way. Asshole!!

And no trip to the ShopRite is complete with the mother and/or father who think a supermarket is a big playground for the kids, and let them run amok like little chicks with their heads chopped off. Asshole!

But let’s get to the 2 biggest assholes of the day. First there’s this guy, in the 25 item express lane.


The picture is kind of small but how many items do you see there (and there was another 15 already bagged and in his cart)? I tell you exactly how many there were…40. 4o items in the 25 item lane. The total number of items is right there on the display, next to running price total. I don’t understand why they can’t program the express lanes registers to actually stop when the person gets to the maximum items on the lane. Believe me, you’d only to do it a couple of times before everyone got the picture. As for this guy…he’s an asshole!

And then there’s this guy.

Saw this just as I was leaving. I slowed down, looked at the guy – and he saw me looking at him – and watched him walk away. You know what? He’s an asshole?

But the question is, who’s the bigger asshole? Express lane dude or 2 space parking lot dude? I will leave it up to you decide. Hey, and the next time you go to the supermarket, please don’t be an asshole. The world is already filled with them.

Show Some Respect

This past weekend, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died. I don’t think it took more than a few nanoseconds before both sides of the political lunatic fringe used this opportunity to use this moment to serve their own cause. Holy Shit America….you all should be ashamed of yourselves.

Boston Herald Dazed and Confused

Take a look at that headline. Just look at it. Earlier this week, the editorial staff of the Boston Herald endorsed Chris Christie, the Governor of New Jersey, for President. Here’s my question for those folks up there: What the f’ are you thinking?
