What

follows is a scattershot bit of random thoughts, links, and images that

showcase the lunacy that exists in the entertainment world and beyond.

Folks who remember my old missives from the old Steady Leak articles

should find this kind of stuff familiar. Folks seemed to get a kick out

of the first installment, and each Wednesday should fall victim to

another installment. Don’t expect anything deep here but something may

tickle your fancy.

ASSORTED DUMB SHIT


1. Why 12 Feet? Why Not 19 Feet or 11 Feet For That Matter?

If I stumbled across the lawn of Abe Granthing, mortal enemy of Peter Graves and assumed the sign was posted due to the proximity to a cemetery rather than the always present fear that an 82 year-old Peter Graves is still a threat, I apologize for my error. If not, consider me creeped the fuck out. Why is this sign here? Is it the result of a resident going into their back yard only to find an encroaching grave? Is it a response to The State vs. Angus Scrimm [settled out of court]? Or do pesky cemetery employees sometimes forget the rules and put the dead wherever the fuck they want?
It’s another reason why I’m getting cremated, preferably after death.

“Honey I have returned from City Hall with my business license!”



“That’s perfect, because I’m having lunch with Sally and Heather and Connie. Their husbands recently locked in a billion dollar client. What new business will become synonymous with our undying love?”


“Dig it, babe. LifeGas. I’ll be bringing different gases to hospitals and nursing homes!”



“Me and my dried vagina thank you. I won’t be back for dinner or forever.”

Seriously. I’d given up hope that a place like this would come into being, what with my homegrown listeners and penchant for aural upgrades.

What kills me is the clip art of the horse on the sign. That exists simply to keep the really creepy guys from shopping there.

“Hell yes, the Feed & Seed!”



“Sir, you’re going to have to-“


“Shut the fuck up, woman! I have come here for two reasons. One involves seed and feeding that seed if you know what I-“



“I’m calling security!”


“Shit yes you are. I’ll need some help pinning you down for the coup de grace.”

I have never heard of ear candling before. I’m sorry if that makes me naive. I have heard of coccyx candling, which I heartily recommend.

I KNOW it hauls ass. It’s a Dodge goddamn car with a bigshit engine. I also know it’s most likely decked out with serious crook-stopping technology up inside. Computers and cameras and lasers.

Problem is, it also has a car seat and a little screen that plays Baby Einstein DVDs to the villains who have to sit in back with lil’ Timothy.

7. Lean Back… AND DIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Anyone who fucks this up probably ought to find out just how it sounds when head slams water fountain.

I’m just glad the dude from Berzerk! was able to start a family. In fact, this may just be concept art for Berzerk! vs. Frogger, coming to consoles in winter 2010!

Never Bitch About My Comic Strips Again.

Leafing through this ‘humor’ book is like leafing through your bleeding child’s distended and suddenly external colon after a suicide bomber has taken the street cafe to task for the West’s greed. It took two people to make this book. It’ll take thousands to piece us together as a race.
