The Favre No-No and a Cyber Hobo



It’s been a looonnnnggg time since I’ve cleaned out the ‘ol thought locker.  Fortunately, I’ve been too busy to fill it with much.  Hold on tight while I unleash some unparalleled genius (aka unfiltered gobbledygook)


Starting recently and moving backwards, I deserve one more rant at the Favre dog and pony show he’s running:

Doesn’t signing with the Vikes officially prove we need police tape around this guys crime scene of a brain?  It highlights the sad fact that he clearly never understood the importance (and general seriousness) of the Green Bay/Minnesota rivalry to the fans.

Doesn’t it sort of illustrate that he’s simply been some turbo gifted athlete that was totally spaced on what it all meant to people?  Like everytime those two teams played, he wasn’t sure why the fans were in such a frenzy, but instead of bothering to figure out why, he just enjoyed it?

It’s like he has no idea what he’s doing to his legacy.  He literally has to win a Superbowl this year to be remotely validated.  They would have built golden statues of this guy all over Wisconsin - he could have been the Governor! (Him and Al Franken could rule the north as an unstoppable duo).

He was absolutely my favourite player for years.  What. Is this. Guy. Doing?


Why aren’t there any funny Republicans?

And I mean, “haha” funny, not “this milk smells funny”, like the way Glenn Beck is.  That guy’s so crazy Gary Busey watches his program and thinks “…Wow.  That guy’s crazy”.

I’m not trying to start any political warfare here, I’m just thinking – every political comedian I can think of leans heavily left.  Why is it impossible to be pro-life and pro-laughs?


 After three days of living in Arizona and budgeting for reality, I’ve acquired a broken microwave and chipped tooth.  Thank you unforseen expenses for the kick in the reality button.

Now that I’m done with hockey, I’m getting the tooth permanently fixed (re-breaking it on a yearly basis would have been pricey, so I waited to get it done right).  What does a crown for a tooth cost, you ask?  $1,100.00, I answer.  I think it’d be cheaper to get one for my head.

I won't ask for so much money. Greedy ninja-hunter.

Which leads me to my idea (copywritten August 2009).

I wanna become a cyber hobo.

I want a picture of me as a hobo, holding a blank sign, and I’ll change the message daily.  I’ve got a hundred good hobo sign ideas, and I figure I can beg for e-change somehow.  I’ll be like the Naked Cowboy of New York, only not naked.  Or a cowboy.  Or in New York.  But you get the drift.

Will blog for food.


Oh, and for those of you who’re super interested in what the drive from Kelowna to Phoenix looks like, I’ve put a little picture blog at the end of “Over The Hills and Through The Woods”.  Enjoy.  I believe at one point I have two straws in my nose, a yard of margarita, and I’ve befriended a huge M&M.

    Alright, I feigned interest in Vikings tickets and in obtaining a Health and Human Services degree. Hope you get a little tooth money as a result.

    Bob Dole was funny. I don’t think Bob Dole meant to be funny, though. Bob Dole. BOB DOLE!

    Damn, the blogs are great. As an NYR fan I can imagine how thrilled the bubble-players are about Gaborik, Higgins, and whoever the hell else they signed joining the team.

    Re becoming a cyber-hobo, I have no idea what the money-making process is with blogs but does it help you if we click the google-ads on your page? Will you try to solicit bigger advertisers at some point? Beer, sports-related stuff?

    In the meantime, I post this link from youtube, if you haven’t seen it already:

    Tom Delay will be funny when he starts ‘dancing with the stars.’ Intentionally or not.

    My offer’s on the table, HoboJustin.

    By the agreement with Google, I can’t comment on the ads, but I am definitely going to start aiming at bigger advertisers. Beer is a wonderful idea. I’ll get on that.

    I think that Favre know exactly what he’s doing. He’s still upset at being forced out of GB and wants to make the Packers pay. I contributed $.14 through google ads. Find a better adservice if you want this to pay for itself.

    I am not a football fan – but living 12 miles from the MN/WI border – I am STUNNED that the Vikes would want Favre. He is the epitome of Packer and he now wears Purple. Fans are divided. I think those that aren’t thrilled to have him will change their tune if he helps the Vikes win a Superbowl. But – seriously – what are the odds of that?? I’m sick of hearing about Favre. Hockey season can’t come soon enough!

  8. jtbourne says:

    Ha, thanks. You know of a better adservice?

    As far as blogging for food – you can always set up a PayPal account which will allow you to put a button anywhere on your page for folks to donate directly to you. It’s one of the ways my theatre company took donations.

    And looking at your trip photos – you bought the wrong yard-o-drink. You gotta go to Harrah’s and the get yard-o-pina colada. Not only is the drink fantastic but the glass is actually a yard long which for me was the whole point!

    I’m curious if you plan to go to any minor league games? Depending on where you are it’s only an hour or two to the Sun Dogs…

    Re: Funny Republicans… Dennis Miller. But you’re right, generally speaking, the majority of the comedy world right now seems to lean left. Maybe it’s because of the vast amount of material they managed to gain from the last administration.
