Is It Just Me?

It occurred to me that there is a slim chance that no one else sees the world quite the same way I do. It also occurred to me that if that’s the case, you’re all wrong. I can only hope I’m not the only one.

For instance, is it just me, or does the mom of the “affluenza teen” bear more than just a passing resemblance to famed prop comedian Carrot Top?

Is it just me, or does anyone else think cats probably aren’t all that proud of their turds – I mean, why would you bury something you’re supposedly proud of?

Is it just me, or is it possible that people are buying dirty houses, power washing them, then selling them for a big profit?

Yes, I KNOW those are two different numbers, but my handwriting expert says they may very well be written by the same businessman.

Is it just me, but shouldn’t “grown” be a prerequisite for “sexy”?

I've never been in this place - I was worried about getting carded.

Is it just me, or does the idea of ganging up on something seem a little like bullying?

Is it just me, or does anyone else wonder how you get a hanger onto a hotel sprinkler head when they’re all permanently attached to the rod in the closet?

I can only imagine the kind of nightmares I'd have if I woke up in a hotel room and saw a disembodied sport jacket hanging from the ceiling.

Is it just me, or is there a correlation between how outrageous a beer name is with how awful it tastes?

Unlike Russell Stover's products, you can't just take a little bite of the bottom of one of these and put it back in the box if you don't like it.

Is it just me, or does putting a bunch of photos where words usually go seem like a shitty excuse for a blog post?  Probably just me, right?

I used to write a fair amount here on my blog, but then I got lazier and now I only manage to write over at The Nudge Wink Report once every month or so.  I only write there because of assigned deadlines and my unflagging allegiance to a woman I've never met but love anyway, the lovely Blogdramedy herself.  My current profile there is a 30,000 word run-on-sentence and ends up keeping people from scrolling all the way to the comments section.  As any blogger will tell you, posting without getting comments is like kissing your first cousin - and not in a hot, West Virginia sort of way.  I'm hoping this little blurb can take the place of the other profile and allow people to actually reach the comments section.

    As usual, my turn writing over at The Nudge Wink Report came up before I had a chance to actually come up with a decent premise. Lucky for me, there are always stupid photos in my phone, so I slapped a little pictorial casserole together and threw some bread crumbs on top. It tastes like chicken.

  2. This is a funny post. Could especially relate to the beer photo. Went to a local craft beer house, and tried a ‘Rogue Yellow Snow IPA” that promised a balanced flavor of strong citrus followed by a piney resin. Is it just me, or does this taste like pine infused piss?

  3. “Grown a prerequisite for sexy?” Listen, if you want to shit all over Greek culture, you go right ahead.

    Affluenza Mom v. Carrot Top — This is really unfair. Regardless of what you think about him or his comedy, he doesn’t deserve this.

    Bullying the Bullies–Absolutely. It’s the same logic that allows the tolerant to shun the intolerant in the name of tolerance.
