What Would Meat Loaf Do??


I'm Lovin' It

Just finished a $2.99 double cheeseburger combo with a coke from McDonald's. It tasted amazing, and the best part is, I'm actually full from it too. I've never understood why folks who claim to be looking out for the poor constantly bash the very companies (McDonalds, Wal-Mart) that help the poor and middle class save money every day. McDonald's not only delivers in the food department, but it has now pissed Starbucks and the intellectual class off by making lattes, capuccinos, and iced macchiatos available to Mexicans and white trash for $1, things only the rich were drinking 20 years ago. Thanks capitalism. Keep on getting bashed by politicians, intellectuals and business incumbents for deliverin' the goods.

Now I know you're thinking "sure, the combo's only 3 bucks, but it's really bad for you," to which I would respond "that's the whole point! bring it on!" Look, here's the deal: all three of my remaining grandparents are in their 70's/80's, and trust me, all three of them are miserable. They hate their lives. I do not want to live nearly as long as them. I want to go out somewhere between 55-65, maybe even earlier if possible. Thanks to McDonald's, I get to save my money now and the taxpayers' money down the road because I won't be sucking off Medicare or Social Security (neither of which are solvent nor will likely be in existence when we reach that age anyway).

The Quotable JPH

I just randomly googled "beach music boat shoes" and discovered that a website called Freedom Works copied and pasted one of Pat's old posts back in the day.

Great Move

The College Football Hall of Fame is rumored to be moving to Atlanta. I know we all grew up Notre Dame fans, but having the HOF attraction in South Bend doesn't make business sense.

Do You Like Phil Collins?

The year is 1985. The month is September. President Reagan's approval rating stands at 66%. The economy is undergoing an unprecedented expansion. And Phil Collins is ruling the charts with a seemingly endless string of hits from No Jacket Required. This one peaked at #4, exactly 24 years ago this week:

Mr. Ray-Man, make mine a Dr. Peppuh

Sixty-eight seniors were commissioned as Cadet Officers this past Saturday night. None of them made the "Holland Leap".

*The Holland Leap references Jack Holland being promoted from Squad Leader to Brigade XO in the fall of 2002.

'09 Benedictine Cadets. Region (3)AAAAA City Champs.

Next up: Jeff Davis and 7 other schools no one has ever heard of. Wait, why do we keep playing in AA? Oh wait, I forgot, that way we don't have to keep making the exhausting 0.4 mile drive to Varnedoe Drive to continue dominating 5A rivals and easily afford ourselves the press and prestige that comes from a first-round playoff bid in the state's highest classification.

Ugh!! Who would want that anyway?? Bring it on Jeff Davis!! We're ready!!

P.S.: Does anyone know what/where Jeff Davis is and is anybody actually going or even thought about going?
