The "joke" that you hear every winter.

Every goddamn year when there's a blizzard, you arrive at work, the grocery store, a friend's house, etc, and some moron will say "Did you bring this snow with you?" Which leads me to one of three conclusions:
1. The person actually wants to know if I am physically capable of causing precipitation to follow me around.
2. The person thinks that I have never heard it before, and that I'm immature enough to find it funny.
3. The person is trying to piss me off.
In most cases, the third possibility seems the most likely. I hear the joke so much that I doubt there is a single person over the age of six in Fort Wayne who has not been asked "Did you bring this snow with you?"

Comedy is like flying an airplane. You really shouldn't try it unless you are confident that you know how to it.

A blog that regular readers of this blog might like.

After having worked for the Social Security Administration since 1970, I retired on January 2, 2009. Anyone who has worked for a government agency that long and hasn't turned libertarian either hasn't been paying attention or doesn't care.

This fellow has been a huge influence on me.

Thought of the day

If an elected official thinks he knows whats best for the banking industry, (or any other industry) then he can best serve the economy, the public good, and even his own interests by resigning from office and pursuing a career in that industry. No doubt that a bank would perform more ethically if not more profitably if it had Barney Frank as a CEO.
