Pocket Pool

People get the wrong idea when they see an old pair of pants with holes cut into the pockets. It doesn’t necessarily imply that the owner of the pants is a public masturbator. It might just mean that he likes telling little kids to reach into his pockets and try to find the candy.

Uncle Rick Died

I just had a great idea for a way to teach young children about the dangers of drinking, as well as a way to help actors find work. Hear me out.

The more years the kid keeps Uncle Rick in the back of his mind, the better the payoff. See where I’m going with this?…

Over the weekend, Gabe and I (HI GABE!!!!!!!!) received one of the coolest presents ever. Our friend Amanda produced a lovely disaster mix for us – "The Silva/Solomon Tsunami Jamboree!" The mix CD is so astounding, not only have I included the playlist below, but I’m also adding some keywords so it gets ranked higher on Google. Tsunami Album. Tsunami Mix. Tsunami Jamboree. Tsunami relief effort. How do I help the tsunami victims? I want to donate money to the tsunami relief effort. Penis Enlargement. Viagra.

Thoughts on Genes

I think that blaming one of your less desirable genetic traits on the parent that passed it down to you is pointless. Let’s use big ears as an example. If a guy has gigantic ears, he’ll most likely blame his big-eared father for passing down the gene. But everyone knows that you have no control over which genes you pass down and which ones you don’t. It’s not the father’s fault he has big ears. If anything, the dude should blame his mother for marrying the big-eared freak.
