I’m not much for jewelry but I feel naked when I’m not wearing my Claddagh ring. It’s a nice nod to my Irish heritage.

Yo’ Mama’s so poor, the last time you had a hot meal was when yo’ sister threw up

with 3 comments

Clearly my original mission to upload a new picture here each day has failed. I was doing well for a few weeks but the fact is I have an unreliable wifi connection and I expected too much out of my ability to stick to a daily routine. I will try to salvage this by changing up what I post and combining my photographic endeavors with thoughts and anecdotes that can be equally appealing to those who know me and those who do not.

I like to write. I just have terrible focus and limited quantities of motivation.

In my bathroom, there is a multi-tier shelf over the toilet. It has become a miniature library of sorts and my most recent addition to the throne of bathroom reading is a book I bought years ago on clearance at a Borders Outlet. It’s called Yo Mama! Uncensored by Snap C. Pop and Kid Rank. It is a beautiful late 90’s collection of insults directed toward your mother such as, “Yo’ Mama’s so fat, Blockbuster Video started a home-delivery service just for her” and “Yo’ Mama’s so stupid, she pawned her TV for a VCR.” In fact, “Yo’ Mama’s so boring, Siskel and Ebert would give it ‘two thumbs up her ass.'” ¬†There are few things I appreciate as much as a classic out-of-date joke. (What did Bill Clinton tell Gary Condit? ¬†“At least your intern disappeared!”) To its credit, there are a few gems in here that are actually pretty good and I would use even today.

Yo’ Mama’s so stupid, they had to burn down the school just to get her out of fifth grade!
Yo’ Mama’s so fat, the crucifix around her neck has a real person attached to it!
Yo Mama’s so ugly, they let her park in the handicapped zone!
Yo’ Mama’s so stupid, she thinks a hot meal is stolen food!

And who can pass up “Yo’ Mama’s so nasty, when I asked her what’s for dinner, she jumped up on the table and said crabs!”? Mmm, delicious! This book is truly fantastic and would make a perfect addition to anybody’s trove of bathroom reading.

Nothing says commitment to getting back into the habit of posting like a declaration at a quarter to three in the morning.
