A palabra to the wise: Al viajar en el extranjero, no seas cabron 1

Travel-guide books are a dime a dozen (and sometimes even cheaper on Amazon). Some are good, and some are not so good. But in my opinion, far too many are aimed at the high-dollar traveler and concentrate on really esoteric crap like finding the best unicorn sushi, or where to go to get your chakras balanced and aligned.

Fellow Boomers, today’s bud is not for you 8

Last week, I read an article on Slate.com about how today’s marijuana is too good. According to this piece, Baby Boomers who used to smoke pot back in the day, and who would like to return to the habit now that their kids are gone, are finding that today’s super-hybridized ganja is too powerful for them. They’d like to smoke something a little more akin to the Mexican brick weed they smoked in their dorm rooms (only, perhaps not from a pipe made out of a cardboard toilet-paper tube and a piece of aluminum foil).

Man on the moon? No prob. Man who’s never seen porn? Fuhgeddaboudit! Reply

One thing science can’t do, though, is find a man who has never watched porn.

Dog putting on too much dog? Now there’s help 1

Ever wonder what your dog does all day while you’re not around? Is he sitting on his doggy butt, licking himself where his balls used to be? If so, is he getting pudgy? And if he were to outlive you, do you worry about who’s going to take care of him?

If you ask yourself these questions, congratulations – you obviously don’t have any real worries. And kudos a second time – as minor as they are, they’re still problems but the good news is, they’re fixable.

No skeletons in his closet — just a bone 2

I think most of us have done things that we’re not proud of. It might be something minor, like reading a book before giving it to someone for Christmas. Or it could be even more heinous, like taking a girl to see Steely Dan just because we wanted to get in her pants (just to, you know, make up a couple of completely hypothetical examples).

Few of us have a secret like district attorney Mark Suben, though. More…
