Chuck Barris Gonged At 87

Chuck Barris, whose game show empire included “The Dating Game,” ”The Newlywed Game” and that infamous factory of cheese, “The Gong Show,” has died. He was 87.

Barris died of natural causes Tuesday afternoon at his home in Palisades, New York, according to publicist Paul Shefrin, who announced the death on behalf of Barris’ family.

I know him best as the host of The Gong Show. Take it away Gene, Gene, the Dancing Machine. Dance for Chuck.

Huh. This is the second Chuck we’ve lost in the past few days. Godspeed Chucks.

Hillary Supporter Savagely Beats Elderly Talk Show Host

Firebrand conservative radio host and adamant President Trump supporter Michael Savage was attacked and pushed to the ground by a man as he left a restaurant in Marin County, his attorney said Wednesday.

An attorney for the 75-year-old Savage questioned whether his client was targeted for his outspoken political beliefs and his backing of Trump, who has said he wouldn’t have won the election without Savage and his millions of listeners.

Savage had just finished dining at Servino Ristorante on Main Street in Tiburon when a man, whom he did not know, approached him in the parking lot around 8 p.m. Tuesday, said Savage’s attorney, Daniel Horowitz.

The man, believed to be about 50 years old and over 6 feet tall, began yelling at Savage, calling him “weenie” and “Weiner,” an apparent reference to Savage’s legal last name, Weiner, Horowitz said.

Whenever you see some goon in the news commit a heinous crime, the media is quick to mention that he/she is a Trump supporter if they indeed are. They find it a critical part of the story. But why would that matter? One would think that the media may have some kind of agenda or something.

A Nepalese Presidents Day Celebration

I own a duplex and rent the other half out. It cuts my mortgage in half. It’s a good deal for me when I have good renters. I’ve had pretty good luck with renters in the past, knock on wood…except for a dipshit named Grant, who was the biggest piece of shit ever born and still owes me $575. That was a few years ago though. But oh well. Ya win some, ya lose some. Because of my experience with shithead Grant, I decided from then on out to go through a property management company for tenant placement. It costs a few bucks but they deal with all of the bullshit with screening potential tenants. It is in the best interest of the property management co. to screen applicants thoroughly so they get my business again. They make sure to do an income check and background/credit checks and so forth. They screen out the deadbeats, so to speak.

For over 2 years now, I’ve had a dude from Nepal living in my rental. He’s a refugee. Young kid, about 28 years old or so. For some reason where I live in the Frozen Tundra of NoDak, we have a lot of refugees. From Nepal, Bhutan, Somalia, Liberia, and so forth, they are living here. Through my renter, I’ve met many people from Nepal. I’ve always been invited when he has people over for beers and food. I almost always attend because they have beer. I bring some too, but for some reason most aren’t interested in PBR. Weird. Anywho, to cut it short, these people are more American than many people I know who were born here. They are all employed. They don’t seek handouts. They are extremely grateful for being here. They are proud to consider themselves as U.S. Citizens. They are individuals. They seek freedom. They want liberty. They want the pursuit of happiness. Even though some of the people I’ve met have only been here a short time, I was told by them in their broken and hard to understand English, that they love this country. My only response to them, as in the words of Red Skelton, that they are citizens and this country is just as much theirs as it is mine. Honestly, this country could use a few more Nepalese people from what I’ve experienced.

The picture above was a pot of money from about 8 Nepalese in my rental, gambling while playing cards. They found it humorous that I took a picture of presidents on Presidents Day. I did have to explain to them that Hamilton wasn’t a president.

I guess my whole point to this half-assed post, is it makes me feel proud when people come to this country and love it, and want to be American. That’s what I experience from the Nepalese refugee people I’ve met. They have the spirit of what it is to me an American.

What A Day For A Bonspiel

This past weekend I participated in the 24th Annual Forest River (North Dakota) Bonspiel. Good times. A Bonspiel is a curing tournament, in which this particular one had 48 teams from all over the region. There were teams from Cana-duh, Minnesota, and of course North Dakota. There was a camper in the parking lot with California license plates who made the drive all the way from the west coast. Guess it’s hard to find a bonspiel there, which doesn’t surprise me. Libtards don’t like curling anyway. That reminds me, I should probably explain the sport of curling to our occasional libtard passerby; Curling is part sport, part party and a cross between shuffleboard, bowling, and New Year’s Eve. It is self regulated, meaning there are no referees or judges. It requires honesty, integrity, and good sportsmanship. Huh, no wonder libtards don’t care for the sport…and I have to tell you, there wasn’t a single libtard within 50 miles of Forest River that weekend I can tell you. As a matter of fact, there never is. It’s a nice place to be.

Bonspiels demand that everyone has a good time. It is impossible not to. With lite hearts, high spirits, and loads of beer, it’s something you don’t ever want to end. The only way I can describe the joy one feels during the tournament, is to picture yourself standing at the pearly gates of the Pabst Blue Ribbon factory, and watching those gates slowly open…just for you.

Valentine’s Day Around The World

From Israel-

If you take a date to BK on Valentime’s Day, it is sure to be your last. In that case, BK should throw in a complimentary container of Gold Bond hand lotion for the newly single guys.

RIP Hannah 1998-2017

She was a good cat.

Remember me always, but do not grieve for me too long.
I have tried always to comfort you in time of sorrow,
and have made every effort to add joy to your life. I
never wanted to cause you pain.

Peace for me is certain now, and I suspect I will have
eternal sleep in the earth I loved so well.

Please, after your period of grieving for me, make
room in your heart for another. You are the kind of
human being that should always have a friend like me
to love. Your kind and gentle heart should not be
wasted on my memory for too long. Give your love to
another. I know your new friend will never take my
place, because we had something very special.

You loved me very much and I loved you. My spirit will
always be with you, and no matter how deep my sleep,
my grateful heart will always be purring for you.

Yule Yetta: The Christmas Goat

.yule yetta

So be good for goodness sake.
Ohhhh, you better watch out, you better not cry,
you better not pout I’m telling you why,
‘Cause Yule Yetta will come to your house.

One of the biggest strategeries parents have over their children to correct undesirable behaviors is the art of threats. Some threats are more affective than others of course. Parents often make the mistake of open-ended threats that simply are not affective and often just leave the child confused. If you don’t stop crying, I’ll give you something to cry about! If you don’t shape up, why, you’ll be sorry! These are examples of open-ended threats. They don’t really work. Sure, maybe the first couple times used by parents they may move to be affective, but as the child learns and becomes more bold in his more experienced age, he learns to ignore them, and continue with the undesirable behavior. These are threats of the lazy parent. The threats are easy to say, but the parent, like the child, have no idea of the planned actions that the parent will take that would lead to appropriate consequences. The parents are just winging it, trying to bluff their child into appropriate behavior. It’s just a matter of time when the child calls the bluff.

My parents used threats towards my brother and I to correct undesirable behaviors. They never used the open-ended approach. They had 3 threats in their arsenal, all quite powerful:

1) Sending me to Diaper School, (I didn’t actually know if any school existed, but I didn’t want to take the chance to find out).
2) Whipping out my broken Fat Albert paddleball game, which replaced the wooded spoon, when the threat of a swat was needed,(this was quite cruel. How sick is it that my parents would use one of my beloved cartoon characters to inflict pain and suffering on me?)
3) Calling Yule Yetta.

Number 3, was by far, the scariest, most powerful, straighten-up-right-quick threat ever used. Yule Yetta, as explained to me at a very young age, was the Christmas goat. Yule Yetta didn’t just work around Christmastime, but all year long. Apparently, Yule Yetta was a female goat who walked on her hind legs.

Now, we all know Santa Claus tours the world at Christmas with his great big sack upon his back, delivering presents and goodies to children. Well, Yule Yetta carries a great big sack as well….except she doesn’t bring presents to children. No, she goes to the homes of bad, naughty, misbehaved children, snatches them up, and stuffs them into her big, black sack, and takes them away. Where to I don’t know. I didn’t even ask. I didn’t want to know. All I knew is that I sure as shit didn’t want Yule Yetta coming to my house…for me. The phrase in my house, “I’m CALLING YULE YETTA!”, was a staple and worked every time to change behaviors and attitudes of my brother and I. It never failed to correct me. That phrase always corrected me. I tried to be a good boy because of it. I was scared to death of ever meeting Yule Yetta. I took those threats very seriously.

Sometimes though, a parent may make a threat for no other reason than for their own entertainment….

Should The U.S. Ban The Burka?

ANGELA Merkel’s today completed an astonishing U-turn as she formally endorsed a full burka ban following a backlash over her open-door migration policies.
The German chancellor made the comments at a Christian Democratic Union (CDU) conference having recently declared she will seek re-election.

If a government can tell people what they cannot wear, can they also tell them what they must wear?

Standards of Respect: U.S. Flag Etiquette

american-flag-etiquette

The Flag Code, which formalizes and unifies the traditional ways in which we give respect to the flag, also contains specific instructions on how the flag is not to be used. They are:

•The flag should never be dipped to any person or thing. It is flown upside down only as a distress signal.
•The flag should not be used as a drapery, or for covering a speakers desk, draping a platform, or for any decoration in general. Bunting of blue, white and red stripes is available for these purposes. The blue stripe of the bunting should be on the top.
•The flag should never be used for any advertising purpose. It should not be embroidered, printed or otherwise impressed on such articles as cushions, handkerchiefs, napkins, boxes, or anything intended to be discarded after temporary use. Advertising signs should not be attached to the staff or halyard
•The flag should not be used as part of a costume or athletic uniform, except that a flag patch may be used on the uniform of military personnel, fireman, policeman and members of patriotic organizations.
•The flag should never have placed on it, or attached to it, any mark, insignia, letter, word, number, figure, or drawing of any kind.
•The flag should never be used as a receptacle for receiving, holding, carrying, or delivering anything.

Real Or Another Hate Crime Hoax?

A woman who wore a headscarf to protect her from the sun returned from a hike in the East Bay hills to find her car vandalized and burglarized, and a note left behind by the culprits reading “Hijab Wearing Bitch,” officials said Wednesday.

Nicki Pancholy, 41, of Milpitas said she felt fear and panic after discovering the note on her car. She said she is not Muslim and wears a bandanna around her head because she has lupus.

“I did not come the next day for my hike because I was scared to come,” Pancholy said. “I didn’t know who was watching me. I would like for the violence to end with me.”

Police are classifying the incident as a hate crime after the note found on Pancholy’s dashboard read, “Hijab Wearing Bitch. This is our nation, now get the F— out.”

Apparently there have been over 430 cases of hateful intimidation reported nationwide since the elections according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. The center also stated that many incidents involved direct references to the President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign and slogans. I wonder what the percentage of these reports are 100% fabricated? 15%? 25%? 75%? We’ve seen many hate crime hoaxes in the past and it seems the frequency has been increasing steadily during Barf Obama’s Presidency.

There is one little thing that makes me suspicious about this story, however. She’s had a “Go Fund Me” page that was created on September 20. Before this alleged incident, she managed to raise $0 for her mission of world peace by climbing a mountain. I’m thinking she needed more publicity to get her Go Fund Me page rolling. It’s just a hunch. What say you?

The Colonel Is Being Sued

colonel_sanders_3417380008_5424c71f02

A New York woman is accusing KFC of advertising Kentucky Fraudulent Chicken according to a suit recently filed against the fast food giant.
Anna Wurtzburger, a 64-year-old retiree, ordered a $20 bucket of fried chicken over the summer and was appalled that the bucket was not overflowing with poultry.

Anyone want to take a stab at how much she is suing for? Go ahead. Take a guess.

It’s finger lickin’ good.

Cubs Win! Cubs Win! Cubs Win!

maxresdefault

71 long years of frustration is over. They have finally won the pennant. Now, they need to end 108 years of frustration by winning the World Series…against Cleveland, who hasn’t won it since 1948.

I watched a Cubs game against Pittsburg at Wrigley Field back in April of 1990. It’s a magical place. It’s as American as anything in our country. Those who have been there will understand what I mean.

It’s hard to get more American than singing with Harry Caray in the 7th inning stretch, too. God rest his soul.

By the way, get ready to hear from our betters in the media how racist the nickname “Indians” is.

The Gong Show Revival

the_gong_show-show-300x225

This show was the America’s Got Talent of the 70’s, but mixed with booze, cocaine, and often incoherent babbling by host, Chuck Barris.

After successfully rebooting several retro game shows, ABC is bringing back another classic shiny-floor competition series. The network has given a 10-episode order to The Gong Show, a new version of the irreverent talent show competition, which is being executive produced by Will Arnett.

Every episode will feature non-traditionally talented performers plucked from the internet and put in front of a revolving panel of Hollywood judges. Sony Pictures TV, which owns the rights to the original series, is the studio.

We are seriously running out of new ideas. Remakes of movies, TV shows, songs, ideas…everything “new” seems to be a re-chuck anymore. We all know the new show is going to be awful and suck, but let’s take a trip down Memory Lane and remember the Gong Show of yesteryear.

How great would it be to gong Trump and Hilary during the next debate!?! -DocO

30 Plus Years Of Bullshit

For the nostalgia fans in our audience. Take a trip back to memory lane. For the record, I remember the Mondale tv ad. Even at the tender age of 10 or 11, I found it creepy; “…and know they love you….” WTF, is what I would have said back then if we had text messages. Enjoy!
