A young fashion designer was attending her first runway presentation in which her dresses were featured. The reviews from the industry were fantastic. Overnight, her line became a best seller. Stores couldn't keep the items on the shelves. Celebrities started wearing them. She became so successful that a competitor was inspired to produce cheap copies of her designs to make a quick buck. Furious about this, the designer called her lawyer and explained what was happening. The lawyer was equally furious, but he knew he could handle the situation. "Don't worry," he assured the designer. "I'll take care of him." "What will you do?" she asked him. Replied the lawyer, "I'll block his knock-off!"

Hungry Harry’s Hundred Best Hoaxes……………………………


#62: Freewheelz.   The April 2000 issue of Esquire magazine introduced its readers to an exciting new company called Freewheelz. This company had a novel business plan. It intended to provide drivers with free cars. In exchange, the lucky drivers had to agree both to the placement of large advertisements on the outside of their vehicle and to the streaming of advertisements on the radio inside their car. Strict criteria limited the number of people eligible to receive a free car. Not only did you have to guarantee that you would drive over 300 miles a week, you also had to complete a 600-question survey that probed into personal information such as your political affiliations and whether you were concerned about hair loss. Finally you had to submit your family's tax returns, notarized video-store-rental receipts, and a stool sample. The entire article, written by Ted Fishman, was a satire of the much-touted "new economy" spawned by the internet. Attentive readers would have caught on to the joke if they had noticed that Freewheelz's official rollout on the web was slated to occur on April 1. But readers who didn't notice this tip-off flooded the offices of Esquire with calls, demanding to know how they could sign up to drive a free minivan. The satire also went over the head of the CEO's of a number of real internet start-ups with business plans similar to that of the fictitious Freewheelz, companies such as Mobile Billboard Network,, and Larry Butler, the CEO of, later confessed to Fishman that he was so scared at the prospect of this new competition that he cried when he first read the article.

Simply Suzie’s Soulful Simperings………………..


A young son asked,   "Is it true Dad, that in some parts of Africa  a man doesn't know his wife until he marries her?"   Dad replied, "That happens in every country, son."


Then there was a woman who said,   "I never knew what real happiness was until I got married,  and by then, it was too late."


Marriage is the triumph of imagination over  intelligence.


If you want your spouse to listen and  pay strict attention to every word you say -- talk in your sleep.  


just think, if it weren't for marriage, men would go through life thinking they had no faults at all.

BillGoat’s Blatherings………………


Next, I tried working in a Muffler Factory, but that was too exhausting.

Next, I attempted being a Deli Worker, but any way I sliced it...  couldn't cut the mustard.


My best job was as a Musician, but eventually found I wasn't noteworthy.


I studied a long time to become a Doctor, but didn't have any patience.

Please excuse Harriet for missing school yesterday. We forgot to get the Sunday paper off the porch, and when we found it Monday, we thought it was Sunday.


Please excuse my son’s tardiness. I forgot to wake him up and I did not find him until I started making the beds.


Please forgive Clarence for being absent from school the past few days. He was home sick from an operation. He had trouble and had to be serpent sized.


Maryann was absent December 11-16 because she had a fever, sore throat, headache, and upset stomach. Her sister was also sick, fever and sore throat. Her brother had a low-grade fever and ached all over. I wasn't the best either, sore throat and fever. There must be the flu going around school. Her father even got hot last night.

Gentleman Jim’s Generic Gems……………………….


If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings."


The main accomplishment of almost all organized protests is to annoy people who are not in them.


If there really is a God who created the entire universe with all of its glories, and He decides to deliver a message to humanity, He will not use, as His messenger, a person on cable TV with a bad hairstyle.


You should not confuse your career with your life.


A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person.

That’s it for this week from Absurdia, the principle city of The People's Democratic Republic of Absurdistan.  The City of Absurdia’s gift to the nation has struck again.  It’s as if Solyndra never happened. The Obama Administration is giving $737 million to a Tonopah Solar, a subsidiary of California-based SolarReserve. PCG is an investment partner with SolarReserve. Nancy Pelosi’s brother-in-law happens to be the number two man at PCG.
