Social Climber

July 20, 2018

Cats love chicken but does chicken love cats? KFC certainly put them to interesting use by means of a four-hour Facebook Live with Super Deluxe event involving a Colonel Sanders Cat Climber, a cool clowder and social internet interaction. The entire multi-hour catravaganza is available but this little promo shows you the tongue-in-chicken style the Colonel was going for.

By the way, all the cats in the event were adoptable through Los Angeles’ Heaven on Earth Society of Animals.

July 11 Trivia Rankings

July 12, 2018

It was great to see folks out again for an evening of Tomato Jake’s Trivia after a week off for America’s birthday. We got some cool ice cream to offset the heat and some cool trivia to satiate our brains.

The Dog Days of Trivia continue all summer long so bring those pooches out to the patio to get entered in our gift basket raffle (date: TDB, at the end of the season – you must be present to win). I will offer opportunities next month for those who don’t have pets to proffer for prizes.

What did we learn this week? Dinosaurs are cool (except when they sing and dance). Sparky has a lot of Tay Tay on his MP3 player. And corn pone is not what you think. Plus there was this incredible Kentucky-fried guest appearance…

Now here are this week’s rankings. See you next Wednesday, Quizlings!

Hate Mail

December 10, 2013

I received something unexpected in the mail. Something unbelievably galling. Something excessively disturbing.

The AARP sent me a membership card.

Of course, it’s not a legitimate card because I’m not a member, but they want me to join!

Now let me state up front that I have nothing against the AARP and I recognize that they may attempt to solicit future members in order to increase their numbers, but I’m not elderly, over the hill, antiquated, past my prime. In short, I am NOT by any stretch of the imagination a senior citizen. I am at least two decades away from retirement! And, forgive me for pointing this out, but AARP stands for American Association of Retired Persons. Oh sure, they just go by the acronym now, eschewing their roots not unlike a KFC pretending that they are a heart-healthy establishment and that the word “Fried” isn’t part and parcel of their name, but we all know what they stand for, who they are, what it all means!

I’m not 21 anymore. I know that. And a lot of things have made me feel “old” in life – turning 30, having arthritic knees, hearing a co-worker call the Bicentennial “ancient history” – but getting this malevolent missive, this demoralizing piece of post, nearly caused my ticker to asplode!

Thank god I’m not in their freakin’ demographic or it probably would have.
