A world where National Fried Bacon Pancake Day is only #44 on a list of eating holidays is not a world in which I care to live. (But there's no doubt that Day After Thanksgiving is #1.)


I guess Festivus and Juneteenth don't have a place in your world, Alice. 


Btw Alice, after reading the full list, Im am one hundred percent behind you, in everything you do!  whatever that means, I can picture it though


Was Beastie Boys Day last Wednesday, perchance?  I only ask because, um, someone I know may have unknowingly celebrated it several times over.

Get a load of those ladies from the Margarita Ball on the right of the page.  Methinks if one attended such event, earplugs and maybe duct tape MAY be necessary.  The duct tape would be to double insulate my ears from ciggy cackle!

Is this Richie Whitt?  Where is leftover brisket sandwich day?  A little homemade dab of the firey red; with onions, pickles and jalapeno's.  What about chix parm day?  Slice it up; slap on some swiss......toast the fresh hoagie bun.  Maybe put it in the brolier for 3 minutes.  Add garlic and Tabasco?


For Boss's Day this year, a coworker and I gave our boss leftover cupcakes someone had brought in from a baby shower.


I thought that for Boss' day you are supposed to dick a few doughnuts and then pass them out to your team.

No, last Wednesday was "redneck Wednesday", where all the redders, and trailer trash listen to that crappy midget Kenny Chesney.  And feast on hot dogs, cigs, cheap beara and chips.  Makes me want to go muddin' boys!  Yee haw.

If you're not including a leftover brisket sandwich on BBQ Binge Day, Super Bowl Sunday and Independence Day, I'm not sure who you are.

Dear JBG,    The drinkin' starts today....the cookin' starts tonight.  Monday Night Football!  My beloved Patriots!  Brats.  Brisket.  I'm making a BBQ sauce from scratch right now.  I'm goin' to Walmart soon to get the following:

-brisket-english muffins for pizza-stuffed shells -Jimmy Dean maple sausage for stuffed shells-beara

ps- I hope that lady with the bloody gauze over her eye isn't workin, cause I'm "houngry!"I hope that guy with the pencil thin mustache is working in the gun section.  It's always really fun to sit behind the archery targets and make "beeping" noises until he acknowledges me. AND so many hots chicks that frequent said locale.  Ahh, chicks with facial hair, Looney Tunes t shirts, and my fave-facial piercings and TAT's on a 500 pounder!  Hey guys, it's swamp elephant day at the Mart.


Are you really angry about my post?  Do you think I was actually criticizing her list?

Drinking never stops Kergs..the gift that keeps on giving.  Mrs. Broken Groin prepared some delicious CFB (Bambi!) yesterday evening...and I didn't even have to hunt the vicious animal down.  Friend o mine was kind enough to give me a backstrap and the Missus was kind enough to cut it up, de-silver skin it..put it in some carnation milk for 12 hours (de-gamies it, don't ya know) and throw it in a little flour..and then in a hot pan.  I'm still in heaven, and it's what's for Din-Din tonight too. 



fixed the sir.  Glad you enjoyed monday morning vagina joke.  Ill see what I can come up with for tuesday


Ok then.  You do assholish well.

I was going to take back my "like" of your pap smear post but it will stay.  And as I'm not a "sir" I appreciate a good pap smear joke.


I dont get angry sir (edit Ma'am), I enjoy your postings, I just wanted to be abrasive and assholish since I hadnt yet today
