Back To Slack
I'm back from Buffalo, where the tasty wings are absurdly hot and the snowstorms are driving. Actually, I didn't see either of those things.
Strangely, I commuted to and from Buffalo yesterday. I was in town for about seven hours, and the closest I felt to actually being there was the bowl of buffalo chicken chowdah I had for lunch and the post-lunch hummer I gave to Sabres center Daniel Briere. Both were deliciously creamy and more enjoyable than I would have guessed.
And while we're on the subject of quasi-homosexual sports jokes, there's this photo Roommate Dorsey sent me late last week:
Anyway, it's good to be back home in the big bad city, and it's good to be back home on this here blog after my guest-post over at Dan's [redacted] breakfast nook. Dan's a good friend and a great writer, but I'd probably kill myself if I lived in a blog world where using Lloyd Christmas' mangling phrase "rapist wit" generates this type of comment: "I'm hoping you meant 'rapier wit,' as opposed to 'rapist wit.' Either one is funny, but only one is correct."
To borrow another movie line, this one from The Colonel, "Gee, you think, doctor?" Oh yes, it's good to be home and amongst my own.
Slack Link of the Day: My buddy JohnnyCon sent this one over, a hilarious play by play from Rob Corddry about his bombing at the GQ Men of the Year ceremony. There's some good shit in here, but my favorite is, "Then it happens: Steve-O from Jackass yells, 'Sit down you Shit-Ass!' Oh, wow. Wowee wow wow. Why did I think the guys from Jackass would like me? Did I think that, between stapling their scrotums to their legs and sticking tiny racecars into their poopholes, they would tune into The Daily Show to enjoy my boorish brand of satiric ribaldry?" Take a gander at that shiite.
Slack Video of the Day: YouTube strikes again -- here's some seriously awesome footage of a Japanese Socialist political leader's assassination in 1960, by sword (but no blood or gore, just craisins). Check it out, Inejiro Asanuma Assassination Footage.
Slack Song of the Day: Dudes, it's 12/7, there's only one option...
