Monday morning laugh

A priest, a minister, and a rabbi want to see who’s best at his job. So they each go into the woods, find a bear, and attempt to convert it. Later they get together.

The priest begins: "When I found the bear, I read to him from the Catechism and sprinkled him with holy water. Next week is his First Communion."

"I found a bear by the stream," says the minister, "and preached God’s holy word. The bear was so mesmerized that he let me baptize him."

They both look down at the rabbi, who is lying on a gurney in a body cast. "Looking back," he says, "maybe I shouldn’t have started with the circumcision."

So guys.....and maybe some women....nothing better to do today than surf the net and waste your time?

Then perhaps a site dedicated specifically to cameltoe is for you.....

Just lazy me on a Friday

So my lazy dog-dangling August continues with yet another quick link-post.

But I know it is one designed to help my brothers in need.

The link says it all.

So my girlfriend just queefed. What now?

Don't look at me. I didn't invent it.

What pisses me off: part 1

I have to say, I've been pissed off with the White House for sometime now. Specifically one inhabitant- all high and mighty, running a once great country into the ground, a war monger with his finger on the button insuring the rich get richer and damn the poor. Why the man can't even string a cohesive sentence together always assassinating the English language with his back-woods, country bumpkin way. Man I hate that dude and all he stands for, as if his father wasn't bad enough when he ran things.....what? Bush isn't President anymore? Obama is?

OK then. I guess that changes my opinion.

Vernon great, band not so much

The last time members of Private Sector performed in Vernon B.C. twenty-five years ago, they were fired during sound check. This time the band played not one, but two sold out nights and blazed through impressive, high-energy sets to the delight of the fans in attendance.

Yet, the after party did not go so well, when back at the hotel, the bands guitarist celebrated by doing a cannonball into the hot tub and subsequently broke three fingers in his right hand.

Bassist Don Barley reported on the accident by saying, "given the intricacies of the guitar parts, we probably could have continued on if there had been only two broken fingers- but three?- Damn his Tomfoolery!"

As a result, Sector will fly back home and the remaining gigs on the Canadian leg of the tour will be postponed. It is expected they will be added to the American dates which begin in October.

The affected cities are Jasper, Ponoka, Lethbridge, Red Deer, Edson, Val Dor, Amos, Quebec City, Levee, Davidson, Pettawawa, Ottawa, and Coberg.

Chart of the week

Choose your own apocalypse

OK Puppet Master, it's all up to you to- as they say in Mexico, "Push de button" and you can add in whatever you want to kill the populace.

See how your senario stacks up. What are you waiting for? Make it blow up real good.

Monday morning laugh

A man, shocked by how his buddy is dressed, asks him, "How long have you been wearing that bra?"

The friend replies, "Ever since my wife found it in the glove compartment."

A little short in a long August

You may have noticed, not much thought has gone in to my posts the last few weeks.

You're right. This happened last September and October too, where I posted a grand total of 19 times a month.

I call it the mid-year-Blog-wall. Just like a runner pounding his way through a 26 mile marathon, I seem to hit the wall around this time of the year and the posts suffer.

...and why should today be any different?

Here is a power point presentation for "So you've decided to fart in public."

Body count is in the house

Hey, ever wonder which movies have the highest body count? Well, wonder no more. Here are the top movies where killing is an art form.

I'm sure Inglorious Bastards is going to rank right up there if I know Tarantino.

Maybe it was the mountain air

Private Sector seemed a little sluggish as they took the stage in Prince George for a gig Saturday night. Perhaps it was the mountain air as the band twists through the Rockies, or maybe the telling signs of a Canadian tour that at times has seemed much longer than it actually has been due to controversy.

The songs seemed rushed and disjointed at times, as if Sector just wanted to get through the night and head off to Vernon where they will stay for a few days before performing again with two shows Friday and Saturday.

Monday morning laugh

A ventriloquist is performing with his dummy on his lap. He’s telling a dumb- blonde joke when a young platinum-haired beauty jumps to her feet.

"What gives you the right to stereotype blondes that way?" she demands. "What does hair color have to do with my worth as a human being?"

Flustered, the ventriloquist begins to stammer out an apology.

"You keep out of this!" she yells. "I’m talking to that little jerk on your knee!"

Breaking out some August numbers

15 billboards that shouldn't be next to one another.

8 of the funniest videos of reporters taking a beating.

10 of the craziest competitive eating moments.

Up the creek

It's been a while since Private Sector found themselves at mile one of the Alaskan highway eating buffalo burgers and Wednesday night that's exactly where they were before hammering out an impressive two-hour set that featured something for everyone.

Sector plowed through much of their musical catalogue but also sprinkled several covers into the mix which delighted the sold out crowd at the Dawson Arena.

The band now heads south for a gig in Prince George on Saturday.

What the doctor ordered.

A tight set Sunday afternoon on the side stage of Edmonton's Rib Fest was just what Private Sector needed to get past the debacle of Friday's Stoney Plain performance which had the police intervening to break up fights and shut the show down.

Sector maneuvered skillfully from song to song playing a barrage of fan favourites, however, the act who preceded the band was the touring company of 2 Girls 1 Cup and most of the audience abandoned the side stage in disgust, opting to wait by the main stage for six hours until The Foo Fighters performed, leaving under fifty people to hear Sector.

The band is now off until Wednesday when they arrive in Dawson Creek, B.C.

Monday morning laugh

A guy spots a sign outside a house that reads "Talking Dog for Sale." Intrigued, he walks in.

"So what have you done with your life?" he asks the dog.

"I’ve led a very full life," says the dog. "I lived in the Alps rescuing avalanche victims. Then I served my country in Iraq. And now I spend my days reading to the residents of a retirement home."

The guy is flabbergasted. He asks the dog’s owner, "Why on earth would you want to get rid of an incredible dog like that?"

The owner says, "Because he’s a liar! He never did any of that!"

Performance cut short by melee

Private Sector had to cut the night short in Stoney Plain Friday, after they invited fans to climb on stage to accompany the band by playing percussion instruments.

Several hundred people simultaneously rushed the stage creating a nightmare for security and several fights broke out.

The show was stopped for forty-five minutes and when order could not be restored the night was scrubbed with four songs remaining in the set.

Luckily no one was seriously injured and police are now investigating the incident as the band moves down the road for an afternoon show Sunday in Edmonton.

Amazing yard sale finds

It's been a shitty summer so far, but the yard sale hunting has been spectacular. Take a look at what I was able to pick up just this morning.

Poop in a can

Cost: $1.50

How could I pass this up?

Big Lebowski Last Supper poster

Cost: $0.75

I tried to get them down to 50 cents but was told "Nobody fucks with the Jesus."

Bathtub full of human brains

Cost: $10.00

The dude who sold me this was a bit creepy, but hell, when am I ever going to have the chance to buy a bathtub full of human brains again?

Big surprise in small venue

Once again Private Sector's equipment ended up in another location due to truck troubles. This time the breakdown occurred in Stoney Plain the locale for Sector's Friday night show.

As a result, the band was forced to take over an Edson club and commandeer the equipment of a surprised cover band. Sector then set out to play two shows to accommodate the crowd in the more intimate setting.

"We're beginning to feel like we're cursed," the band lamented to the Edson Examiner after the show.

If they are, at least their geer will be waiting for them in Stoney Plain.

Thursday laugh

It's almost the end of the week. One more day to go, but you're feeling a bit drained. Well, Ol' Strange is here for you. It's the least I can do.....actually the least I can do is to post nothing at all, but I'll go you one better and post a joke to try and brighten your dull Thursday.

Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He’s not breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls 911.

"I think my friend is dead!" he yells. "What can I do?"

The operator says, "Calm down. First, let’s make sure he’s dead."

There’s a silence, then a shot. Back on the phone, the guy says, "Okay, now what?"

Getting used to normal

Private Sector delivered another solid show Tuesday in Lloydminster at the city's annual Blueberry Festival. Once again there were no obsticles to overcome. No lost equipment, no power outages, no opening act debacle, even the rain held off and the out door gig went off without a hitch- something the band attests they could get used to.

Yet, there seemed to be a lack of sizzle Sector had displayed at previous performances in Saskatoon and North Battleford, as the band ran an orderly set, marching through songs from their twenty-five year history.

Drummer Bug Christopher mused after the show, "Perhaps we need the controversy to add the fuel to the furnace?"

If so, here's hoping for a little more adversity as the tour continues in Edson, Alberta on Thursday.

Sector rocks Saskatoon

With the controversy surrounding yet another Private Sector tour, the group seemed to draw strength from the recent events and delivered the show of a life time.

Even after twenty-five years since the band last graced these parts, Sector proved, that like a fine wine, they've gotten better with age.

From the energetic opening of "With in the Circle" until the end of the fourth encore with "Heart of Darkness", the band plowed through much of their catalogue trotting out some obscure songs like "Death of Me","Quiet Earth", and "Arms Out to Armageddon".

Sector move on the Lloydminster for a show on Tuesday.

Mauler vies for opening act slot

Mexican sensation, midget wrestler, The Masked Mauler has thrown his hat into the ring, (literally), hoping to be the next opening act on Private Sector's "Disputin' Rasputin Tour", after Frederick the Karaoke Cat was pulled off the tour when it was learned he had ties to terrorist organizations.

The Mauler believes he'd bring a Jim Rose Circus Sideshow element to the show and would complement Sector's performance.

The band could not be reached for comment.
