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.


1. If So, KILL ME NOW.

I don’t care who you are, how badly your parents fucked up, or what side of the tracks you live on. If Burger King is in the top 20 of ANYTHING in your life you should mull skipping both Burger King and life. I don’t mean to be cruel but your future is the AntiJesus.

2. “Nothing excites me more than MOIST CLOTH OH HOLY FUCK MOIST CLOTH!

While I appreciate Kleenex’s wise decision to use a screen grab from my favorite Shizer film [Stool Hand Luke] as the marketing motif for their new product line, I don’t know if anyone in this world or the next has the need for excessive enthusiasm over an item you use mostly to erase mistakes in your life or to wipe your shot off your beloved before it bonds them to the blanket.

3. Where Oedipus Dines.

I recommend the Momgolian Beef or the Steamed Pot Stickdadswife.

4. In direct competition with Amos’s Freezers & Circumcision Tool Shop.

“You again.”

“Me again. How is everything here at the business license office?”

“Fine. How did your American Flag Repair Shop fare?”


“And your patent for the Briefcase Toilet?”

“Never caught on with the golfers.”

“What can I do for you today?”

“I’ve figured out an infallible recipe for retail success…”

5. Your Pants Won’t Even Have To Come Off.

Luckily my desire to drop loads is stronger than my fear of public nudity.

6. In this market they may trend a little towards being downgraded to Diarrhea.

I’m much more concerned about the “Do It Yourself Hearse” parked there than the fecal housing community.

7. Well There’s One Reason!

8. Lost the Election, Gained an Erection.

“Why did you vote for Robin?”

“She was askin’ for it.”

9. “This one’s papery. Oooh, so is this one. And this one too!”

I’m still having trouble differentiating the taste from Arby’s.

10. I know we all look the same, but…

I got a good deal on a 1992 Kevin Tighe, a precocious yet nuanced 2001 Dermot Mulroney, and a robust 1975 Charles Durning.

11. “Calm the fuck down. You’re MECHANICS for God’s sake.”

A car mechanic shop is as close to amazing as I am to octadextrous.
Fuck a mechanic in the mouth, it’s all they’re good for.

12. Jesus Tastes Better Breaded and Fried.

It’s bad enough that Chick Fil-A is closed on Sundays for religious reasons and typically in direct correlation with my own body’s chemical desire for their food. Yeah, I’m a Sundayfeeder. It’s also bad enough that I crap Rosary Bead Pellets after consuming said annihilated fowl and that I have to denounce Satan with each delicious bite. I draw the line at their new policy of having to bring evidence of being in a church to get a discount. They never seem to appreciate when I bring in my Danzig concert stubs so why should I cater to this injustice?

13. Buying Toilet Paper is like Having Your First Child.

I gave my wife this shitpaper and she got on one knee and proposed undying servitude to me. Kroger knows something we men don’t about what constitutes joy on Earth. A nice wipe of the ass bundled with thousands of interconnected identical twins, sealed in plastic and softer than the love of the forefathers. What I’m trying to say is that “Inspire Joy” might be reaching a little too high in the signage department at the asshole cleaning section of a store. I love to tidy up my Venus Backmound as much as the next guy but the goal is always businesslike satisfaction and rarely anything approaching joy. Perhaps I need to try more Scott products. Not Scott the man. Scott the poop grooming brand.

14. “Stop the anal thrusting for a second, I missed a spot.”

I should have been wary when Seymour Butts asked me to be his handyman.
