A man loves the meat in his youth that he cannot endure in his age.
Just finished watching an old slot onlain Young Comedians show. For you young ‘uns out there, this was a show they put on a couple times a year with the comics that might not necessarily be young, but were unknown enough that this was considered a big break.
I caught the tail end of the show, after watching a fan-freaking-tastic Entourage. I popped in during the middle of Ray Romano’s set, back when he wore ties and was still funny and wasn’t dropping 10K on WSOP entries. Dana Carvey was hosting, back before we all got tired of his Johnny Carson and Jimmy Stewart imitations.
By the way, if you haven’t seen his bit about Jimmy Stewart having sex for the first time, you’re missing comedy gold.jeaneane garofalo when she was cute
Next came Jeaneane Garofalo back when she was cute and looked eerily like Norah Jones and was capable of, you know, being funny instead of, you know, shrill. And closing out the show – I repeat, closing out the show – was Nick DiPaulo when he still had potential.
Making lemons out of lemonade
Ireland’s top bookmaker, Paddy Power PLC, paid out more than $13,500 on Friday to people who bet that Al Gore would be arrested. Trouble was, the company neglected to specify which one.
Give them credit for paying out. Every single thinking person on the planet knew which Al Gore they were talking about. They didn’t have to pay, IMO.
Good move, though. And, let’s face it, $13,500 for the worldwide publicity they get is the cheapest advertising they’ll ever receive.
About a week or so ago I wrote about Florida rasing poker limitsFlorida raising poker limits. Today’s PPA blog linked to an article in the Miami Herald about the Seminoles reining in the players after initially giving the new law a loose interpretation.
Stories of high 5- and low 6-figure posts abound.
As predicted, a skilled player had 5 days of open season on the fish at the Seminole’s casino. Now, the season is still open, the fish will still be there, but the pond will be smaller.
Just looking back at some old posts, and came across this gem tucked into some actual poker content:
Mrs. Big has me scratching my ever-loving-head these days.
She asked me to stop at Sam’s and pick up a Click-n-Pull order today. I get there, and there’s a float stacked high with emergency food: 128 bottles of water, a case of Gatorade, gobs of canned soups, veggies, and Chef Boyardee, 50 lbs of dog food,30 rolls of TP, filter masks, god knows how many maxi-pads… oh, and there was a second order she placed an hour later with hand sanitizer and 6 more gallons of Zephyrhills water because apparently 128 bottles wasn’t enough.
We’re moving in 3 weeks. We’re spending our days weeding out crap, and here she is bringing it back in. I can’t even bring myself to tell you how much this crap cost.
Yep, she’s afraid that society is going to break down if there’s bird flu.
I crack myself up sometimes… 😉
