All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


Get'n Old

I've always liked classic rock.  Even when I was in college, I enjoyed the stuff from the 70's.  After I lost the hearing in my right ear a few years back, I quit listening to the radio.  I did that for a couple of reasons.  First, music doesn't sound the way I remember it.  Second, I wanted to protect the little bit of hearing I still had in my left ear.

Yesterday I was driving somebody else's car and they had left the radio on.  It was a classic rock station and I was getting into the tunes.  I was enjoying myself and didn't even switch the channel when they played a commercial.  The DJ came back and said something about playing a real old tune that we were sure to remember.  The first few bars of Aerosmith's Walk This Way started I thought "cool"  then I realized it was the Run DMC version.

When did Rap become classic anything?  WTF? this song is from 1990 for crying out loud.  Somebody pour me a Metamucil, and hand me my walker so I can go down an pop a cap in the DJ.

Three Texans

Three Texans go down to Mexico one night, get drunk, and wake up in jail only to find out that they are to be
executed in the morning, though none of them can remember what they did the night before.

The first one is strapped into the electric chair and is asked if he has any last words.

He says, "I am from the Baylor School of Divinity, and I believe in the almighty power of God to intervene on behalf of the innocent."

They throw the switch and nothing happens, so they figure God must not want this guy to die and they let him go.

The second one is strapped in and gives his last words: "I am from the University of Texas School of Law, and I believe in the power of justice to intervene on the part of the innocent."

They throw the switch and again nothing happens. They figure that the law is on this guy's side, so they let him go too.

The last one is strapped in and says, "Well, I'm a Texas Aggie Electrical Engineer, and I'll tell you right now you ain't gonna electrocute nobody if you don't connect them two wires."

I know, its a day late for Bad Joke Wednesday, but if the shoe fits...


Happy New Year

I wish you all a Happy New New.  My God bless us all with a return to our Republic and not the total destruction of our nation, in 2012.
