Because mankind's capacity for stupidity is limitless

Apple

Dylan said it best

Their names, faces and abhorrent behavior have become the laughing stock of America.  Bad enough that Ted, Marco and ‘The Donald’ haven’t a clue what decorum and ‘acting presidential’ mean.  Worse, pulling us down with them into the muck and mire of a school yard game of kickball in a rain storm has become an accepted campaign strategy.  Be glad you aren’t footing the dry cleaning bills.  Unless you donated! :-P  How does it feel, Republican voters, to be on your own?  With no direction home?  Maybe, like Dylan, you too will discover that, he (your candidate) wasn’t where it’s at.  But remember, like a rolling stone, you are free to just laugh about it.  Send in the clowns. :-)

Other stupid stuff we didn’t make up

Church attendance is down everywhere.  Solution?  Move over madmen, clergy of all stripes are today’s word wizards.  Just read the signs out front…  Selfie death by handgun is sooo passé.  We found five ‘suspicious’ deaths since in history that took a great deal of thought- and zero common sense… Fun With English returns, along with everyone’s fave, our Moment of Duh, aka Stupid Criminal Tricks :-)

Music this week includes the progressive rock of The Suitcase Junket (Vermont’s Matt Lorenz); the great Indie pop-rock of Winterpills who launch a new record next week entitled Love Songs as well as a few bars of The Who’s We Won’t Get Fooled Again.  Hard rock your thing?  NYC’s wailing girl band, Lily Sparks drop by with their big hit, Stars – which the 2 Kens turned into a shameless promotion for YOU CAN’T MAKE IT UP!

Bankers Hours… Lemme get this straight. A Castilian queen takes a flyer on a 15th century sailor’s dalliance for a Western trade route and Wall Street traders gets a day off.

Laced with literary references and riding the high-minded music of Stanford’s Glass Wave this week’s show classes up the joint. Need proof of our newly polished pedigree? We found an iPhone app for movie goers with weak bladders. A couple who discovered- as Poe suggested – that walls do not make great neighbors. Insurance to protect you from being sued […]

Every love story, whether told in literary classics or whispered over the back fence, is an emotional  roller coaster. Bumps, bliss, bizzare beginnings, poorly chosen gifts and – if you stay together long enough – the odd obit, seemingly written more to amuse its reader than to honor the dearly departed. Our Valentines Day show has […]

Inspired by a mom with four little kids, this app didn’t go far enough. Imagine all the helpful little things the jolly fat man […]

Apple didn’t like these Top 10 iPhone third-party apps rejected by Mr. Jobs & Co. Thankfully, consumer outrage forced Apple to reconsider ‘Pull My Finger.’ Nice to see good taste prevail once more. Is this a great country or what? Hello, OnStar? Can you help me? I tried putting my keyless entry fob against my face, like […]
