May’s Dead Celebrities – Get ‘Em In The Ground Before It Gets Hot!

Posted in Celebrity Deaths, Nonsense with tags , , , , , , , on June 1, 2014 by Bob

In the good old summer TIME! I don’t know what song that is (I think it’s from a movie) but a local car dealer Harry Schmerler used to sing that one line in one of his commercials for some reason. He called himself the singing Ford dealer. He is long since gone and he really has nothing to do with this other than the summertime line. Summertime is finally fast approaching. The celebs that kicked in May got to experience their very last non-spring. Good thing they took off before the warm weather. Heat and dead bodies is almost as good a combo as snow and the color yellow. Let’s get to it shall we?

Efrem Zimbalist Jr. – 95 – Actor 77 Sunset Strip – May 2

Dick Ayers – 90 Comic book artist Fantastic Four, Ghost Rider – May 4

At least May was technically spring so there should have been a lot of reproducing to replace these fallen famous folks.



ComEd Sucks

Since I have been home for a few days now and not running all over, I have had time to look out my back window. I also had time to look online to see why the trees that block the sound of the train were cut down. It is because ComEd is putting up new high voltage lines right behind my house. They could have gone along the road but the jack ass geniuses at ComEd and the Illinois Commerce Commission decided that it would be far better to run the lines right behind people homes, decreasing the home value and creating possible health issues.  I know the village of Huntley fought this a little bit, I just hope that they fought it enough. I am wondering who at ComEd, the ICC or Huntley will be paying for the decrease in home value because these power lines are right behind people homes. Maybe if I have even more money to throw away I will consider sueing someone for some amount. I doubt it will do any good though and obviously our elected politicians did not do enough to be able to move these another 100 yards away or so. Yeah, I am bitter and angry. Letters will be written this week while Tori is napping.

Jackie got the last Harry Potter movie for Christmas. It had a digital copy with this new “UltraVoiolet” crap from Flixter. So far, what a pain in the ass. I hope that this method fails miserably and they go back to just regular digital copies. I hate that I had to register for all this and that I can’t figure out how to get it into my iTunes yet. Just an annoying day all around I guess.

If a blind man climbs a ladder to the 13th floor of a second level basement, and Big Bird flies to Russia during Ramadan, then George Jetson travels in time to see his granddaughter blow up a mountain troll from Harry Potter.

Arby’s is not good mood food and grease is not the word anymore.

MMI (motorcycle mechanics institute) is a far better name than UTI (universal technical institute)

If you hate your job on Monday then silverback gorillas will eat salmon in June.

16 men on a dead parrots chest … just won’t fit.

Piggy banks would be more challenging if they were real pigs.
