Randall Cunningham seizes the means of production

In 1987, Philadelphia Eagles coach Buddy Ryan and quarterback Randall Cunningham ran the most unsportsmanlike play in NFL history. The Dallas Cowboys totally deserved it.

Jet funny cars

These jet cars put on the same show almost every time no matter what track you visit. But the noise, the smoke, the stutter up to the line and the launch are equally exciting.

Three men await entry into heaven…

St. Peter tells them, “As you all know God has a sense of humor and his latest idea is to put the Kingdom of Heaven several hundred miles from the Pearly Gates.”

“How is that supposed to be funny?” one guy asks.

“Well, God had the novel idea of allowing those admitted into Heaven a vehicle to travel that distance, but the quality of your vehicle is based upon how faithful you were to your spouse.”

Knowing they can’t argue and that God obviously knows all, the men begin confessing their infidelity.

“I admit I screwed around behind my wife’s back, but I broke it off with the girl before my wife found out,” one man admits.

“Very well,” St. Peter responds, and gives him a standard bicycle. The guy shrugs and feels a little better confessing.

The second man says with a grin, “I’ve never actually cheated on my wife.”

St. Peter raises a skeptical brow.

“Okay… There was one time, but it was technically before we were married! I was drunk and I didn’t know what I was doing but I’ve never been unfaithful after that!”

With a heavy sigh St. Peter grants the second man a car – but in terrible condition.

The third man says proudly, “I’ve never been unfaithful. Never.”

The other two stare at the third in disbelief.

“No, he’s right.” St. Peter confirms. “He’s been faithful the whole time. In fact he lost his virginity to his wife.”

The other two men gape in jealous amazement as the third man is granted a brand new sports car.

The third man obviously can make it down the long, glittering highway toward the Kingdom of Heaven faster than the other two.

However, the first man on the bicycle finds the third man pulled over not too far down the road.

Perplexed, he rides up to the sports car and finds the man sobbing into his steering wheel.

“What’s wrong, wise-guy, is this Italian muscle too much for you?” he gloats.

“No…” the third man tries to gain composure. “It’s not that… The car is beautiful!”

“Then what’s your problem?” “I just passed my wife and she was on rollerskates!”

What the… ?

I just ran across this picture and looked at it for a long time trying to make sense of it. I couldn’t understand how a trucker could get himself and his rig into this situation. I decided to dig deeper. I Googled the image and discovered it was a from a scene from the movie Man of Steel.

Photoshop Phonies

Fakes, phonies, shams. Call them what you will. But never call them original even though the Photoshop artist claims it’s his work. As far as he’s concerned, they’re original. As far as we’re concerned… Oh look! There’s a squirrel climbing down a tree head first.

Hit it.
