Tasteless Jokes of the Month
- The new Baltimore mother got out of bed for the first time since her
childbirth dressed in her robe and walked down the hospital hallway to
the nurses desk where she asked for a phone book. "What are you
doing out here! You should be in your room resting," the nurse
exclaimed. "I want to search through the phone book for a name for my
baby," the new mother replied. "You don't have to do that here. The
hospital furnished a booklet to all new mothers to assist them in picking
a first name for their baby." "You don't understand," the woman said and
frowned. "My baby already has a FIRST name!"
- It has been determined that having sex before participating in athletic
activity, such as a marathon race, does not impair the athlete's
performance. In fact, men have known and displayed this for centuries.
After sex, they glance at their watches and say, "Oops, gotta run!"
Happy New Year!
Hello again everyone! First off, sorry for the delay in the updates. I have
recently switched over to a new company and server to run my web
site, and well, being that I am not all that technologically sound, it has
taken a while to get things in order. Thank you for your patience....I am
talking to you, Eric H.!!!!!

as well start out with my New Year's resolutions. Here we go...

NEED to shut the fuck up" and "You NEED to mind your own business".
- I resolve to not make fun of or complain about Maryland.
- I resolve to use less social media and just be more social.
- I resolve to spend my weekends binge watching all those t.v. shows
that everyone says I "gotta watch". OK, not much of a resolution if I am
already doing it, but really, it's all about having goals.
- Maryland REALLY sucks! Oh shit, so much for that resolution.
- I resolve to drink more. Um, please refer to my binge watching
resolution for further explanation if you need it.
- I resolve to restart by campaign to show people that Kevin Hart, Seth
Rogen, and Melissa McCarthy just ain't funny. (OK, that one shouldn't be
- And finally, I resolve to perform more this year. I need your help on
that one. Anyone know of a venue near you, let me know so I can get it
I hope everyone had a safe holiday and I wish all of you the best in the
Till next time......drinks are on me,
