News, but not the serious kind

You here for business or pleasure, Mr. Stinky?



Man, the actual news is so goofy this week, I don’t even have to invent my own.

You take for instance this true story about a truck driver I like to call Mr. Stinky, who got caught trying to smuggle 28 TONS of garlic from Norway into Sweden. Jeez, what do you suppose tipped them off?

“Pssssssssst! Lamar! Come in here! Close the door.”

“I want you to handle a little smuggling job for me, like you’ve done in the past.”

“What is it this time? Stolen art? Drugs?”

“No Lamar, it’s garlic.”

“You got vampire trouble again, Boss? How many cloves of garlic do you need?”

I’m gonna eat your heart! Uh, is that it?

You must be the Head Bear



Blog Guy, I need you to settle a bet with the guy who’s asphalting my nephew’s driveway.

When handball turns hardball…


Blog Guy, I know you closely follow all sports, and I have a question about handball.

Sure. But are you talking about regular handball, or Greek handball?

Huh? What’s the difference?

In regular handball they use a ball. In Greek handball, they hurl chairs. Athletes who are accustomed to regular handball tend to be in for a surprise when they go to Greece to play.

Blog Guy, do you handle missing persons cases?

I’ve never done one before, but how hard could it be? Who’s missing?

Then, yesterday, a judge ruled that she has to wear this big black butt-ugly alcohol monitoring device on her ankle, 24/7, to make sure she doesn’t drink any booze. It NEVER comes off.
