Dead Goblin..

I am guessing that this time of year brings out all the freaks who would rather steal everyone else's gifts than work for the money to buy their own. This ass-monkey breaks into the house and shoots the owner in the leg!
After being shot in the leg and scared that he and his wife would be killed by the two men who had held them hostage for two hours as they ransacked their home, Clyde Colley decided to defend his life and home, investigators say.
His first thought was probably, "Oh shit, John Kerry was wrong! I was all nice and passive and they still shot me! I'm fucked! OH WAIT! I still have my Ronald Reagan commemorative Pistol! Hummmmm, what would George Bush do? KILL 'EM ALL!" At this point our Hero jumps up and grabs his .38 and ventilates a Goblins head!

Ummm, yah, in my house, you wouldn't have made it past the front entry way closet! I wonder if we are going to break into the double digits before the new year?

PIG Pic..

I present for your viewing pleasure, my next purchase!

The North American Arms .22 Magnum Mini Revolver. This thing is actually build WELL! NAA also provides a Lifetime Warranty on its Mini's!

Our .22 Magnum Mini-Revolver is the ultimate in up front, personal, close-in protection. It's small, easy to conceal and safe to carry. Whether you carry it for hiking and camping, or for self-defense, this gun delivers when you need it most.

As with every NAA Mini-Revolver, the hammer need not rest on an empty chamber. Using the original half-way notch cylinder, the hammer may rest safely and securely without chance of accidental discharge.

OK, Time for the Specs!

  • Caliber: .22 Magnum
  • Capacity: 5
  • Material: 17-4 pH stainless steel
  • Barrel Length: 1 5/8"
  • Overall Length: 5 1/4"
  • Overall Height: 2 7/8"
  • Width: 7/8"
  • Weight: 6.2 oz. Unloaded
  • Suggested Retail Price: $208.00
A Darwin Award Candidate Guy I know actually had his Deringer go off while in his pocket. Almost shot his balls off, along with his femoral artery! (Don't get me started on proper carry methods!) He lived, suffice to say, it cured me of ever wanting a Deringer. However, NAA has remedied this problem with their "Half-way Notch." It actually locks the cylinder, so it can't rotate over and accidentally discharge. However, if you need to shoot, all you need to do is cock the hammer! Nice!

So, let me see if I have this straight. Very concealable, Reliable, Magnum round (even if it is *just a .22) American Made, high quality, Lifetime Warranty. Yup, I would say this stands about a 95% chance of being my next purchase.

* - To date, there have been more people killed by a .22 caliber round than all others put together.

Dead Goblin..

Well, today I have not one, but TWO tales of common everyday citizens using the rights granted to them by the 2nd Amendment, to protect themselves and their families.
The first takes place in Aldine Texas.

A 79-year-old homeowner shot and killed a man who broke into his Aldine area home early today, Houston police said.
This just proves that the elderly are targeted more often than younger families. They are seen as easy prey. I, for one, am GLAD this gentleman lived in the Great State of Texas. Not only will he NOT be taken to trial for some half-assed lame BS charge of manslaughter, brought on by some short sighted, panty waist liberal DA, (I know, redundancy alert!) but he may very well get an award for it!

The second Goblin was blasted, story of heroics, is from Salinas, California. Now, as we all know, California is not exactly the poster boy for Civil Liberties. As a matter of fact, California may just be the second most restrictive place to try to own a firearm in the US, (right after New York.) So, the fact that a homeowner owned a firearm, let alone was able to use one to protect themselves, makes this story that much sweeter.
A Salinas man took his family's safety into his own hands Tuesday morning when an alleged robber broke into his home.
Police say that two men armed with weapons broke into the Salinas home on Powell Street around 9 a.m., but the homeowner was still inside, along with his three children.
The homeowner shot one alleged robber. The man was taken to a Salinas hospital, where he later died.
Oh, happy, happy, Joy, Joy!
This just further supports what many people have been saying for some time. Guns can save lives!

Daddy Test

I was out walking with my 6 year old son the other day.
As we were walking along he picked up something off the ground and started to put it in his mouth. I told him not to do that.
"Because it's been laying outside and it is dirty and probably has yucky germs."
At this point, he looked at me with total admiration and asked, "Wow! How do you know all this stuff?"
"Uh..." I was thinking quickly, "...All dads know this stuff. Um, it's on the Daddy Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Daddy."
We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but he was evidently pondering this new information.
"OH...I get it!" he beamed, "So if you don't pass, you have to be the Mommy."

Shamelessly stolen from Roger.


During the 50's, a Men's Magazine called "Modern Man" feature a writer who went out into the un-tamed wilds in search of adventure.

Sexy Pin-up. World explorer. It's a wicked combination. Month after month for, Modern Man reader were treated to Jane Dolinger's globe-trotting accounts as well as a healthy dose of cheesecake posed in exotic locales. She was the all-American girl who faced danger and found adventure no matter where she landed. One month she would be Queen of the Amazon, the next she was in the middle of a Voodoo ceremony, and then it was off to a Moroccan harem. No matter where she was, she always looked great whether draped in leopard skins, wrapped in South American tapestries, or dressed as a Egyptian princess. Dolinger's stories where always a breathless, daring narrative of danger and intrigue throughout the uncivilized parts of the planet.
Well, here she is, in all her glory!

Wow.... How about one more..

Jane Dolinger; That's one name I won't be forgetting anytime soon! Va Va Voom! Incidentally, the Modern Man that I linked to earlier, that featured a girl named Jennie Lee.. My readers may remember her as one of my previous Pin-Ups. Very Nice, very nice indeed!

Ornament exchange..

So, before I was sick, I went to an ornament exchange party hosted by one of the Captains. We drew numbers for what order we would select a wrapped gift box containing an ornament. When I opened mine.. This is what I found.

Yes, the sheeps hind legs are in the bears boots. That is so the sheep can't get away... or so I have been told.

Firefighters are notorious pranksters. When I saw this, I just laughed and laughed. The wife had an interesting question... How should we explain this to our 6 yo?

Another Firefighter Out..

Yes, our Fire Department just lost another firefighter.. To illness this time. Yes, I tested POSITIVE for Strep Throat. So, I am considered contagious for the next 2 days, which just adds to the Chief's scheduling problems. I also am working on a big project, which I wanted finished by FRIDAY, and is now delayed until after Christmas. GREAT. I spoke with my Division Chief on the phone, and his comment was, "Great, you got sick just in time for Christmas."

While at the nurses station, she asked me if my kid has had Strep lately. I replied "No, my wife did." Nurse smiled, then asked the dumbest question ever. "So do you know how you got it?" I replied, "Ummm... Ya, 10 years of marriage, we still kiss, and umm... Stuff!" She got a funny look on her face, and said, "Ya, I guess that should have been obvious! Sorry!"

So, look out! I am likely to be bored and posted all sorts of ridiculous crap on here!


On a brighter note, I received a letter in the mail Saturday.

From: City of ######
Bureau of Human Resources

Injured Firefighter

I may not be around as much this weekend. One of our Firefighter/Medics was injured (He cut off a finger on a table saw!) He is out of surgery, (they re-attached the finger) and is home now, however, he will not be able to return to duty for 6 weeks. I have offered to help cover shifts during his absence.
I will be working Sunday (today) to cover someone elses shift, and then my normal shift Monday! So, posts may suffer a bit, but I will do my best!

Don't worry, I already have the Pin-up, so that won't be late!

What do you call the proceedure where they remove a man's penis?
What do you call the proceedure where they sew it back on?
An adadictomy

(say it slow....Add-a-dick-to-me...)

Whatever, you'll be tellin that joke later this next week!
