Strangers in the Night

Lately, I've been having trouble getting to sleep. I find my mind racing about the stupidest things. Sometimes it's worrying about whether I'll form an abcess overnight because I ran out of floss. Or occasionally I find myself contemplating the diabetes-defying superpowers of that girl from Precious. Hell, sometimes I even fret about midnight visits from Dr. Bungobungo. Tonight, however, as I itch my ass in bed, my imagination demands to talk about money...

Normally I'm not a huge fan of unwillingly loaning out my vital organs to Chinese businessmen, but hey, if it means I can finally get a good night's sleep, I guess you've got to make sacrifices. Here's to hoping I wake up.

Give Thanks, Not Shanks

It's Thanksgiving Day again here in the states. For those of our non-U.S. readers, it's one of this country's oldest national holidays. If memory serves me right, it was founded by the Native Americans, who were thankful to the pasty Europeans for not only discovering America, but for bringing along all sorts of cool Euro souvenirs. Like the Puritans...and Smallpox.

So, in keeping with the traditional observation of any national holiday, I'll be doing as little work as possible today.

Even though he does wear yoga pants, and he bears an uncanny likeness to Dr. Bungobungo, this week I'm thankful to have a kick-ass blog partner. And we're both thankful to have such excellent readers and blog friends. You guys and gals are the best. Here's to hoping that you all have a good Thanksgiving (if you celebrate), or that you at least find another acceptable reason to gorge yourself with turkey, mashed potatoes, and a little boxed wine (the classiest of Thanksgiving-related drinks).

The News is Killing Us

         I don't know how it is for our foreign friends, but here in America, the news is complete bullshit. Before every news cast and especially before they go to a commercial, they give these overly dramatic, extremely frightening teasers that force you to tune in and watch, because if you don't, you MAY be killed. Think I'm kidding? See below:

          So if you don't drink metal and you sit in traffic, be wary, my friends, because you could die at any moment. The worst part? These teasers always lead up to nothing. If you were curious about the stories above, not consuming enough iron could lower your quality of health, and sitting in traffic too much could raise your blood pressure. In other words, 20-30 years from now if you get deathly ill because of low iron intake or you have a heart attack because you sat in rush hour traffic for all those years, you could DIE. Just a tad bit over-dramatic, right?
          Well, in the interest of selling out (which we love to do) we want in! So we'd like to announce that tragedy struck here at A Beer for the Shower today, proving that drawing stupid MSPaint comics actually CAN kill you. So who died? We'll tell you after the comic!

Meanwhile, just out of pottery class:

So what do you guys think of the news?

Cheers and stay classy, friends,
