So … How Was Your Day?

Posted on | November 16, 2011 | 37 Comments

Mrs. Other McCain locked her keys in the car. It’s raining.

You should hit the tip jar. Not like that’s going to get the keys out of the car (or stop the rain) but it will help cheer up my wife. Meanwhile, in other major breaking news developments . . .

In case you’ve forgotten, the whole point of this headline roundup was to encourage you to hit the freaking tip jar.

Because my wife locked her keys in the car.

Which is my fault.

Because everything is always my fault.

    On the bright side, your wife locked her keys in the car.  If you had done it, it would have been a lot worse.

    It is of course still your fault, but trust me it would have been worse if you had locked those keys in there.

    Masturbating behind the podium… those were the dais.  At 75 shouldn’t he be celebrated? Onan the Barbarian!!!

    Breaking news developments?  Hmmm, how about Senator Kerry once again winning a not so coveted DC Award …

    Is it your fault it’s raining?

    What can I say: I learned at the master’s feet [I hope you’ve washed them by now].

    The Middleton sisters are the gifts that keep on giving.  Since 29 April the Pippa Middleton Upskirt Photo  and the Kate Middleton Upskirt Photos [plural!] have garnered me over 60,000 hits, and the former has been in my Top Twenty every day since I posted it.

    I am only a Rule 5 Mojo Master today because of you – you should be proud, Robert Stacy McCain.

    You’re married. Everything is your fault. Just accept it. Take it from me. I’m a wife 🙂

    Recently, unexpectedly, Stacy was determined to be at fault for Ishtar.

    There is a silver lining – Herman Cain is dropping in the polls,so you don’t have to walk back the man crush. Ok, I apologize in advance for that one, Stacy. Sorry you had a tough day. I had a tough day too, then I talked to a guy that was just diagnosed with bladder cancer, and my day didn’t seem nearly as bad after I hung up the phone.

    You get away with mountains more than I do. Rule 5 would be on the scrapheap in about 5 seconds. So, you’re lucky.

    Of course.  I mean he was doing it behind a podium.  What is the problem? 

    Steve-I am joking.  Yeah I have a problem with high school teachers doing that in class.

    Right: Warren Beatty gets all that fine Hollywood nookie, and I take the blame for Ishtar. Because I’m the Universal Scapegoat.

     Stacy, the format of this post is PURE GOLD!  You ended my work day with a smile.
     I kept it together pretty well until Smitty mentioned “Ishtar,”
     but then couldn’t stop the guffaws. 

    All us peasants are awestruck.

    Robert Stacy McCain broke my pencil at work today.  From Virginia.  In Los Angeles.

    The crash of Skylab was Stacy’s high school science project.

    Not content with creating Spam, Stacy went on to invent Treet and canned Vienna Sausages.

    My wife drove her car into the poles that protect the mailbox at the post office.  Guess whose fault THAT was?

    Not if he knows the 6 words that guarantee a successful marriage: “Yes, dear. Yes, dear. Yes, dear.”

    And Stacy, that’s because “I do” is actually the incantation that makes every woman capable of starring in her own personal “Unforgettable”… at least when it comes to you.
