"HAPPY BIRTHDAY"
"BUCKEYE BATTLE CRY" / "THE VICTORS"
"NASCAR SONG"
"STEPFORD WIFE"
"WHAT A GIRL WANTS"
"MONEY"
"TWO FOOLS"



"HAPPY BIRTHDAY"


Happy Birthday
By Stevie Wonder


This should have been part of my Friday posting and for that I truly apologize...
Was a horrible son this past week, allowing my Dad's Birthday to pass on Friday without a call. Sometimes THE COUCH can be so much a numbskull. SO SO Sorry dad.


"BUCKEYE BATTLE CRY" / "THE VICTORS"

Big football game this past Saturday. Excellent game with Ohio State edging out Michigan.

Condolences to Bo Schembechler's family on his passing. Anyone who knows anything about college football knows the name Bo. If you don't you can read up HERE.

Though he did do something dumb when he was running the Detroit Tigers and he fired Ernie Harwell, the great broadcaster.

"NASCAR SONG"

OK... I am sorry but this Nascar thing...left hand turns, yellow flags - go fast - yellow flag - go fast - yellow flag and cars crashing... ummmm THE COUCH can watch it for a few minutes at a time, but that is about all...

"STEPFORD WIFE"

Yes, they got married in Italy this past weekend... Tom and his stepford wife...

Now move on please...
"WHAT A GIRL WANTS"

THE COUCH is impressed with Christina Aguilera. This young woman was pure fluff when she began, tried to get "respectability" by becoming drrrty and making scenes and shocking people and then had a revelation.

Sing and sing some more and then you will become a star. Her new album is very good, we liked her duet with Tony Bennett on SNL last week.

Hellllllllllllllllllllllllllo Britney...you listening?


"MONEY"

So Peruvian officials decided to spread the wealth by instituting revenue-sharing from rising prices of gold, zinc and other minerals. They did not expect the results shown in the jungle and mountain municipalities who have seen their income on mining taxes increase by 1,000% in the last year.

Instead of paving streets and constructing sewer systems as the govenment had hoped, grandiose town halls and heated swimming pools for the mayors of these towns have appeared instead.

But nothing as weird as what happened in the municipality of Huayre, where Mayor Wenceslao Alderete constructed what he hopes will become a tourist attraction.

Gracing the village's central plaza are outsized images of genitalia and of macca root, a tuber consumed as an aphrodisiac!

As you can guess Alderete says the $158,000.00 was well spent and it is not his job to build sewer systems, that is the job of the regional govenment.

Guess it helps that he is not running for reelection!

The rumors that Disney is looking at this for Epcot are being denied.

"TWO FOOLS"

If only they had something to do with their spare time...

Two students in Winfield, Kansas are accussed of putting staples in ketchup in the local high school and middle school. The two could be suspended or expelled.

Kiddies..how could suspension ever be a consideration. Throw them out and let mommy and daddy have to foot the bill for private school.


St. J - P.B.U.A.Q.B.


Thanks for sitting on THE COUCH, hope you enjoyed your stay.

Remember .. Nets For Malaria - UNFoundation.org/malaria - find the big SI's Nothing But Net logo ... Or call 202.887.9040. Every cent goes to buying nets to place over the beds of children in Africa to stomp out Malaria. PLEASE HELP.

Keep that spark of insanity kids...It helps keep you an individual.

  2. Shame, shame, shame on you for forgetting Dad's birthday. ;-)

    I too am glad that TomKat finally tied the knot. I'm sick of hearing about it.

    Ummmm... the kids putting staples in the ketchup...what they need is a good ole' fashion butt whooping. Believe me, if one of mine did that.... all HE double hockey sticks would break out. That's a promise...

    NASCAR.. oh yeah... Taylor looked so very yummy on there yesterday. Vinny, if you ever go to a race, you'll be hooked for life. I use to be the same way... not anymore!

  8. Shame, shame, everbody knows your name! Well, better late than never on your dad's birthday...we tend to forget things we when get older, now don't we?

    RE: NASCAR...We live about a mile and a half from one of the big NASCAR tracks, and when the night is clear, you can hear them racing right in our living room. And we don't even have to buy tickets or worry about parking!! We just turn down the sound on the TV and it's like we're in pit row! Now if Taylor would only come and sing the SSB...

    Have a good week, Vinny!

    Hugs,
    Pia

    P.S. Oh yes, I almost forgot...the TomKat thingy. GACK!!!!!!!!!!

    JULIE: Ty...knew you would like the Bucks thingy

    ANNDI: Sure dad appreciates it...LEFT TURN!

    PIA; Thanks for bringing up childhood rhymes...I have had this problem most of my life.. you would think there weren't things called CALENDARS to help out...
    GACK is correct...

    MIRANDA: Even now since he has gone off the deep end?? He is just plain weird now...

     
  13. busy91 Says:
  14. I had always thought it was too bad that Christina had a nice voice but was so slutty, I am glad she toned it down some.

     
  15. Sanni Says:

  19. Dixiechick Says:
  20. Hey Bond said TURN!!! ;-)

    LMOO

     
  21. Meribah Says:
  22. Happy, happy Birthday to Bond's dad! Hope it was a good one!
    I, too, am glad TomKat tied the knot 'cause they're annoying and I want them out of the news, thanks! LOL
    As for the ketchup boys and the Peruvian numbnut politicians...nothing peeps do in this world really surprises me anymore...which is kinda sad if you think about it!

     
  23. Oo, Bond, I can't believe you forgot your dad's birthday -- shame! I agree with Julie in that I'm sure he raised you better than that. Methinks you'd better grovel some more!

    If I have to hear another mention of the Cruise Creature and Helpless Holmes, I think I will BARF. What was really hilarious, though, was the odd look on her face when she was looking out of the castle window: "WTF? Uh, can someone get me OUTTA HERE?!" BTW, did you know she had her gown designed with an escape hatch in the back and a one-way ticket to South America in the hidden compartment? ROTFLMAO!

    I really hope the BCS shakes out better after USC finishes it's Slack-10 conference game. What I REALLY hope is that my Irish can avenge last year's loss to SC -- GO IRISH!

     
  24. Dana Says:
  25. I always through Christina was very pretty when she cleaned up.

    Happy birthday Bond's Dad!

     
  26. Fred Says:
  27. Happy Birthday to your dad. Hope all is well with him.

    What bothers me about some of these nut jobs in third word countries is that our aid sometimes pays for those goofy things.

     
  28. Twyla Says:
  29. I usually don't pay much attention to what's going on in Hollywood, but for some reason I'm been obsessed with the whole TomKat thing. I think it's maybe because I'm trying to figure out if it's real or not...maybe I'm jealous. Nope that's not it. LOL I have to say I was very disappointed with the whole thing.

     
  30. Bond Says:
  31. DIXIE: ummm yup

    MERI: The world is kinda crazy isn't it.

    SONGBIRD: funny stuff..do you want to write for THE COUCH?
    Not sure after the loss to Michigan ND can make it to the Championship game.

    DANA: I like her singing...

    FRED: Exactly correct..money that is supposed to go to infrastucture goes to someones new home...

    TWYLA: This one is just a little trainwreck...

    THANKS TO ALL FOR THE BIRTHDAY GREETINGS FOR DAD...

     
  32. Travis Says:
  33. Dude - you didn't forget your Dad's birthday! You just remembered it wrong!!

    As for Christina - uhm - yeah - it's all about the singing - yeah.

    What?

    Oops. **quickly wipes drool off chin**
