What is the Business World Coming To?

As I was parusing the Forbes Magazine online articles, I stumbled across something very interesting. Apparantly Radio Shack decided to take mass-layoffs to a new level. Instead of telling each employee individually they sent out one email to 400 employee's of the company's Fort Worth headquarters saying, "The work force reduction notification is currently in progress. Unfortunately, your position is one that has been eliminated."

Seriously, you simultaneously fired 400 people? Honestly, if I would have got an email telling me I was fired I would take my computer screen, walk into my weenie boss' office, crawl on top of his desk while he is still sitting at it, and then proceed with dropping the screen on his head - numerous times.

But hey, at least they were nice enough to fill up the break room with free boxes for all the employees to use to pack up.

Pretty Crazy Stuff


I did something tonight I haven't done in a long time - watch a tennis match. I sure didn't think it would last almost 4 hrs. Tennis legend Andre Agassi is playing in his last major tournament. Many figured tonight would be his last match against the #8 player in the world Marcus Bhagdatis. Well any man who used to look as fierce as the picture about should never be counted out. All the way to the last point in the 5th set, and Andre pulled it out. Hopefully the run can continue. Good luck.


Oh, and I know you are bald now, Andre, but if you were to somehow find a mullet wig similar to the real thing you used to have I would almost gaurantee you a tournament title...two days to find one.

Something Different

I was watching Letterman tonight and they had on a stand-up comic named Charlie Hill. His act was something I had never heard before, and it was kind of funny. He was an indian (feather not dot) comic. Most of the time I am not really for the same played out race jokes over and over (I can't stand Mexican comics doing the same immigrant jokes, or black comics doing ghetto jokes), but since this was something I had never really heard before I found it rather funny. Now, if there is all of a sudden an uprise of indian stand-up comics that all do variations of the same material I think his stuff will lose its humor - but for now I really like it.

Damn

Trying to find a job. This town is kind of funny about jobs. During the summer there is none because there is nobody in this town, the first week of school everyone comes back - but when you go to look for a job because thousands more people are in Norman all you hear is, "we have filled all of our positions." So you have a window of approximately 2 minutes 34 seconds to find a job. I guess I missed that window.

Can They Do That?

I guess a bunch of science geeks decided Pluto is no longer a planet. Is that allowed?

I would think twice



India man with two penises to undergo surgery

NEW DELHI -- An Indian man born with two penises wants to get one of them removed so that he can marry, a report said Saturday.

The 24-year-old businessman checked himself into a city hospital for the operation after having lived all his life with the rare condition medically known as penile duplication or diphallus, the Times of India said.

"It is an extremely rare condition. More so because two fully functional penises is unheard of even in medical literature," the newspaper quoted a doctor as saying.

"In the more common form of diphallus, one organ is rudimentary."

The doctor said the operation would be extremely complicated as surgeons would have to ensure that the retained organ was fully functional.

The report did not name the patient or hospital to protect the man's identity.

The developmental abnormality is found in one in 5.5 million men and only around 100 such cases have been reported since the first one in 1609, the newspaper said.



So this dude wants to get rid of one of his members...ever thought of the money he could make in porn? Just throwing that out there.

First Time for Everything

Starting my 5th year of college I accomplished I have yet to do...attend the first day of class. Yes, that is right. I went to two classes on the first day of school - and I plan on continuing this trend throughout the entire first WEEK! Wow, I will probably be pretty tired when this week is done.

I'm Moving to Mexico

Most of you know I try not to get to political on this blog. Most of you know I am a republican and how I feel on subjects of politics, however I think this is rather poignant. It is a few months old and I am sure some of you have seen it but I really do think it needs to be read again.

Dear President Bush:

I'm about to plan a little trip with my family and extended family, and I would like to ask you to assist me. I'm going to walk across the border from the U.S. into Mexico, and I need to make a few arrangements. I know you can help with this.

I plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration quotas and laws. I'm sure they handle those things the same way you do here.

So, would you mind telling your buddy, President Vicente Fox, that I'm on my way over? Please let him know that I will be expecting the following:

1. Free medical care for my entire family.

2. English-speaking government bureaucrats for all services I might need, whether I use them or not.

3. All government forms need to be printed in English.

4. I want my kids to be taught by English-speaking teachers.

5. Schools need to include classes on American culture and history.

6. I want my kids to see the American flag flying on the top of the flag pole at their school with the Mexican flag flying lower down.

7. Please plan to feed my kids at school for both breakfast and lunch.

8. I will need a local Mexican driver's license so I can get easy access to government services.

9. I do not plan to have any car insurance, and I won't make any effort to learn local traffic laws.

10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo from Pres. Fox to leave me alone, please be sure that all police officers speak English.

11. I plan to fly the U.S. flag from my house top, put flag decals on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not want any complaints or negative comments from the locals.

12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes, and don't enforce any labor laws or tax laws.

13. Please tell all the people in the country to be extremely nice and never say a critical word about me, or about the strain I might place on the economy.

Thank you so much for your kind help.

Sincerely, USA Citizen

WHEW!

I'm tired. My apartment was attacked by 7 dirty, drunk, ungrateful houseguests, a fat little pug, and a puppy that tried to bite me to death.

It was a fun weekend of golf, poker, beer, and memories. With a lot of friends in town there was not much sleep to be had to I am going to try and catch up in the next few days. We went to this pretty cool night club on Saturday night called Maker's. It is a cigar and jazz bar. I will definitely have to go back there sometime.

On a little side note, there was one unfortunate event that happened this weekend. For dinner on Saturday we went to Chilenos in Bricktown. Chilenos is a decent mexican restaurant, but for some reason on Saturday night our experience was horrid. I realize it was a Mexican restaurant we were eating at, but is it too much to ask that the employees actually speak English? It took 3 different waiters 4 times to TRY to get our drink order right. I actually kind of stayed out of it because all I ordered was a bottle of beer - but everyone else was very understandabily pissed. Stupid illegal mexicans.

Fun stuff.

Last free week before school starts - crap!

A Few Random Things

First and foremost, I am glad to hear that Fidel Castro is recovering quickly from his surgery. I hope he can return to being a facist dictator very soon.

Second, has anyone seen those "Messing with Sasquatch" commercials from the Jack Links Jerky company? They are probably the funniest commercials I have seen in a long while. Effective in wanting me to go buy Jack Links by the truckload? No. Funny? Yes!

Third, whoever decided to turn the outdoor heater in Oklahoma City up to 105 degrees can please turn it back down now. Seriously. Whenever I can cook my bacon and egg breakfast on my driveway, that means it is too hot.

Looking forward to this weekend.

My First...

...drunk blog. (Get your head out of the gutter.) This is my first drunk blog, and I am pretty darn proud of myself for going this long. Tonight was a going away party for one of Heather's good friends, so we had a really good time.

So this past week HEather and I went to Missouri for my great-grandmothers funeral. Sad times. I remember going down to her and Granpa Crowders farm and always having a blast - a city slicker kid in the country is always a good thing. Unfortunately most of her kids are fighting over the will and property and such, which somewhat tainted the week even more then it already was. Stupid people piss me off.

This next weekend Stu, Jeff, Alison, and maybe Wes will be coming to Norman. I look forward to a quality weekend of golf, gambling, and general drunken debauchery. Should be some good times, and hopefully I will get some good pictures to capture the glorious events as they unfold.

Paris Hilton should die.

Check this out... I got two B's in both of my summer school classes. Beyond that, out of 9 tests I got 1 A, 5 C's, and 3 D's! Gotta love the curve's.

More to come tomorrow......
