You Are Your Own Funniest Joke

How many times do you wake up in the morning and roll out of bed, only to be awakened by the sound of your heavy ass body hitting the floor?  What about tripping up the escalator stairs as you come out of the subway station, running late for work, of course?  Dare you recount the number of times you couldn’t hold in that last bit of gas after wolfing down any value meal from the McDonald’s menu?  Though the average person may point their fingers and laugh at your clumsy or greedy ass, it saves you a red face if you can just learn to laugh at yourself.  Sure, sometimes you’d much rather stick your head in a deep hole like an ostrich in order to avoid certain types of embarrassment, but if you can’t find humor in your own mistakes then you damn sure have no right to point out the mistakes of others.  And everyone agrees that it’s fun to point out the mistakes of others.  Even if you don’t concur verbally, your inner “real person” would agree, as he/she reminds you of that one time where you were rightfully so the butt of the joke. 

Being clumsy may be something to laugh at, but it’s also something to smile about.  There are way too many people who take themselves [and life] too seriously.  Every now and then you should be reminded that your ass is stupid, lazy, clutzy, greedy or gassy.  It’s what makes you normal – whatever your definition of normal is.  If by normal, you think “farting in church during a silent prayer,” then go for it!  Sometimes no one around you will find your faults funny, but that’s all the more reason to laugh – in that case, at everyone else for not seeing the sense of humor in life…and the noise your butt makes when you accidentally poot in public.  Just hope Jesus finds it equally as funny come judgment day. 

Life is filled with “oops” moments.  For instance, forgetting to put on underwear and having a gust of wind expose your ass crack for all to see.  Most people would call you a skank, skeez, or whore.  However, there are some people who would commend you for being so openly slutty and would probably wink, smile or secretly toss their phone numbers at you on a wrinkled up napkin.  Another example is if you accidentally get a hard on at the beach when seeing some fine piece of hump-lay run past you, jiggling in all the right places.  Once again, there’s a perfect opportunity for someone to laugh at you for being so damn horny.  If you’re really confident in yourself, the joke will be on them when you stand at full attention and leave the beach hand in hand with someone who got all moist inside for checking you out from afar!  Whether you’re a clutz or a freak, just remember the wise words of the great Michael Jackson, “You Are Not Alone.”    

Whatever the reason anyone may have for acknowledging just how much of an idiot you are, laughing at yourself will ease the humiliation of being the talked-about loser that no one wants to be around.  Laugh and the world laughs with you. Weep and it keeps on laughing.  All it takes is a little effort.  And 90% of any effort is getting started.  The bottom line is, if everyone around is going to be laughing at you, you might as well be in on the joke.

Remember Your First Heart-Felt “F*ck You!”?

Not all memories of your past are good ones.  Sure, there are some.  The first time you got laid, the first time you ate popcorn and potato chips at the same time, even your first solo in the shower.  But it’s those bad memories that stick out like sore thumbs.  For example – the first time you got laid, the first person to ever break your heart or your first solo OUT of the shower.  Though many people sit and reminisce on the days of yesteryear, you, along with about a kabillion other people sit and reminisce on that one person who led you on, only to step on your heart like a roach invading a home in the projects. 

Granted, you may find yourself asking yourself the question, “What the hell was I thinking?” at times, but those memories aren’t all a bag of crap – at least they shouldn’t be.  You’d be insensitive or inhuman if they were.  Maybe even a moron for dealing with such harshness of a shattered love, at least in the concept of what you thought love should be.  In some ways, you kind of owe your “first” a word of thanks.  Not in the sense of thanking them with a bouquet of roses, unless those roses are dead and wilted.  But thanking them for allowing you the opportunity to learn that you are so much better a person without them.  After all, how would you know how to deal with a broken heart if it wasn’t for that person, who lied to you, cheated on you and made you more of a less-wanted option as opposed to a can’t-do-without necessity?  Just think, there’s so many other reasons you can give thanks to that individual who never really gave a sh*t about you in private, only in public when it really mattered, when their set of friends looked on to your scripted relationship with envy.  You should stand proudly and hold your head up high as you thank the motherf*cker for:  

  • ruining someone else’s false hopes of living and loving happily ever after,
  • assisting you in losing weight after all those lonely nights of warm tears and loss of appetite, 
  • for no longer making you feel like an unwanted fool for forgetting special days like your birthday, Christmas and Valentine’s Day,
  • for no longer using you as a guinea pig for a love affair they prayed to have sans YOU,
  • for blaming you for a mistake they made, and
  • last but not least, for teaching you how to say and mean the most profound words of our country’s history, “F*ck you!”

You’d be just as much of a liar as they were if you admitted out loud that you no longer harbored any positive or negative thoughts to the tainted past. No one ever moves on completely…not when their “first” is concerned.  It’s just easier to hold on to all the profane thoughts of a “plastic” relationship than it is to admit you were a fool for love at all.  The truth is you’re going to be a fool for love many times over, even if you’re lucky enough to find your soul mate. 

Finding that one true love isn’t a matter of effort, it’s a matter of two things: (1) time and (2) patience.  Two things most people believe they don’t have a lot of.

Quote of the Week:     “Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.”

Bad Breath is a Weapon ONLY If You Are a Dragon!

There comes a time in a man’s [or woman’s] life when they are absolutely insulted by the smell of someone’s breath.  In some cases, the offense can be forgiven.  Only when morning has arrived and that terrible delinquent has yet to brush their teeth before facing the shiny faces of typical Earthlings during every day travel, or if a truck load of onions is somehow involved.  Otherwise, bad breath is a calling – a yearning – a begging for a beat down! 

It happens to the best and worst of people; the pretty prom queen whom every girl hates; the jock that every man wants to be; the church pastor who shouts, “Hallelujah!” directly into the faces of his clergy staff; the supervisor who leans over the shoulder to explain needlessly, the details of office instructions; or even the lover who didn’t mark ‘HALITOSIS’ on the dating application.  Bad breath is not a discriminator for its targets.  It scoffs at toothpaste and chuckles at Altoids and even bellows at the sight of dental floss.  It is an enemy of anyone who is not plagued with the scent of ass cheese, otherwise known as an unclean mouth.  

It has nothing to do with curse words or 69s.  It is not hereditary.  What it is ‘is just plain WRONG!’  It’s the deal breaker for almost anything that requires two people to interact with one another who don’t happen to be deaf or skilled in the art of sign language.  It could be a result of the foods you eat, the cigs or plants you smoke or an extreme case of dry mouth – which is usually most prevalent in people who talk too damn much.     

Bad breath is a living organism that builds a nest in people’s mouths and continues to grow until the awful smell has consumed everything surrounding them.  It can not be dressed up.  It can not be hidden.  It travels the waves of air like stilettos on marble floors and announces itself in a ball of fire, after which slowly fading into a dark cloud of smoke, usually killing all forms of life from people to bugs. 

Having offensive garbage disposal breath for the average man is sure to get you jumped, dumped, talked about, alienated, laughed at, or shoved down a flight of stairs.  But if you have been cursed with this catastrophe for a number of years, you have learned how to turn your negative into a positive.  In result, bad breath could be a weapon if you are a dragon living in the medieval age.  Otherwise it’s just a green ticket to NOT be invited to parties.  

Nevertheless, we here in Hottywood aim to help those in need.  Below are 5 steps that are guaranteed to help you banish any trace of halitosis, no matter what stage the case may be.  

Change Your Breath From BAD to GOOD 

Drink more water.  Water directly shot into your mouth from a water hose will probably be most effective.  Anyone who smells you a mile away will be happy to ready themselves, aim and fire! 

___________________________________________________________

Don’t avoid the dentist.  He is your friend.  Probably your only friend.  Not to mention the one person who is paid to deal with that sh*t coming out of your mouth.

___________________________________________________________

Eat a slice of bread.  If you’re on one of the many popular low-carb diets, remember that bad breath is a potential side effect when you always have that burger sans bun. Adding a few carbs to your daily diet just might do the trick.

___________________________________________________________

Don’t let your tongue become a dirty carpet.  Brush your damn teeth and don’t forget about that bacteria collecting tongue of yours. 

___________________________________________________________

Chew gum like it’s going out of style. 

ENOUGH SAID.

___________________________________________________________

Bad breath is not the end of the world, unless you’re on the other end of the spectrum, in which case one should always be equipped with a portable gas mask.  Keep the mask near the front door and always remember to grab it along with your keys as you dash out of the house for those ‘just in case’ moments.  You’ll find that it’ll come in handy most when you go to work, as coworkers usually come as they are because their colleagues have no choice but to deal with the offense since their paychecks affect their livelihood.  

Brushing your teeth is not a chore.  It’s a requirement.  And though it shouldn’t, all it takes is a little effort.  And 90% of any effort is getting started.

Quote of the Week:     “You cannot kill time without injuring eternity.”

The Morning After

The weekend is quickly approaching and somewhere in the world is a young skank kicking him/herself for sucking on one too many vodka-sickles and waking up to some disappointing one night stand. It’s not uncommon. In fact, it’s quite something to be proud of just as long as the high volume of alcohol continues to saturate the blood stream. It isn’t until the morning after, that those very same skanks would much rather blow their brains out with a popcorn kernel BB gun for laying up with the joker who otherwise wouldn’t stand a chance in hell with anyone hopeless, desperate or breathing. Alas, it’s amazing what an abnormal amount of alcohol consumption can do to one’s judgment and yearning loins.

Once you’ve managed to escape from the stained bed sheets of your last night’s shame, it’s hard to determine if that pit in your stomach is nothing but a hangover waiting to happen or the image of what your drunk ass was too wasted to notice before you lined the lamp shade with your underwear. Shame on the lush! Not for getting laid by a perfect stranger. That’s normal. Shame on you for not pulling out the emergency “Yuck Face” kit before giving up the goods. Your disgraceful inebriation turned out to be someone else’s 10-point score card. You were the victim they prayed for and no matter how many times you vomit or scrub your sin-contaminated skin, the scent of indignity will linger on you like pollen in the Spring time. As you drop to your knees and beg the high heavens for forgiveness, be sure to pray that your sinuses are the only thing that flares up.

You may travel through the day with images of wild positions your nameless lover placed you in or hear the engraved outlandish, embarrassing and insulting names you may have demanded to be called.  You may blame it on the alcohol, like Jamie Foxx and T-Pain.  You may even blame it on the dry spell of not having any mortal flesh between your legs in the past 3-7 months.  Whatever your reason, no amount of excuses can cleanse the disgust of your level of desperation to bed the first person who was smart enough to catch you at your drunkest state.  You will forever be a trophy on the mantle piece of the ugly, the defamed, and some would even argue – the damn right lucky!    

How do you feel about yourself now???

Don’t be so hard on yourself.  Although ½ the world would probably point its fingers and laugh for the dumb choice you let that empty bottle of booze make for you, you should feel proud that you were able to spread your good cheer like a spoonful of heated margarine, despite the fact that you may want to bungee jump off a short cliff with no rope.  You have done a good deed for someone who otherwise may not have stood a chance for companionship if he or she were standing in the middle of a puppy adoption fair.  Your combined skills of being a ho and a lush has provided someone the opportunity to kiss and tell to all their loser-like friends about just how easy you are.   And just think – all it took was 90% of effort and a bottle of 80 proof liquor. 

Now that’s how you serve your country.
