Polish Alerts

Were you ever driving on the highway and noticed instead of the usual "Traffic for 10 miles" digital road signs, you see an Amber Alert with a license plate number and make/model of the vehicle.  Well recently i have been seeing more and more of these signs with "Silver Alert" instead.  I had no clue what a silver alert was. I thought sounds like somebody forgot to take their Centrum Silver 1 a day.  My wife, oh how i love her dear, doesnt have street cred and/or knowledge like i do. So one day she told me that silver alert meant that there is a old person loose on the road.  I laughed hysterically.. not with her.. but at her.  How can this be true??.. i thought.  Until the next day i googled and saw that she was in fact right. A Sliver Alert basically means that an old person is loose on the road and forgot to take their meds. They are either lost or missing or just trying to get the hell away from their crazy kids.. who knows.

This "guy" should never ever drive a car.. ever!
Wikipedia states (cause it has to be true if its Wikipedia):  A Silver Alert is a public notification system in the United States to broadcast information about missing persons - especially seniors with Alzheimer's Disease, dementia or other mental disabilities - in order to aid in their return.

I dont know about you but i think that this is soooo freaking funny.  The fact that we have an alert for an elderly on the road just makes me laugh.  How many times have you heard someone or even yourself say "This person shouldnt be on the road" .. Well now you know.. maybe they shouldnt!!

The name Silver Alert makes me laugh even more. We live in a world that if you drop the N word or say the F word (not fuck) or the R word you have to apologize to the Gay and Lesbian group, the African American group, the White people group, the Wildlife group.. you get my point.. So to name this a "Silver" alert is hysterical!!!  Where is the AARP where we need em!!

I feel your pain buddy.

The fact that we as a society are now ok with seeing signs for missing elders makes me wonder in the future will we possible be seeing other signs as well??? Like Blond Alerts.  Polish Alerts.  Shit even Woman Alerts cause lets face it women are the WORST drivers!!!

Back to the Amber Alert.. Every time i see one of them.. yes.. i get sad cause it is very sad.. but i always read the license plate and make/model because i am just waiting for that one day where they make a type-o and its my license plate and just so happens same Honda Civic!  Now thats NOT COOL!!!

My Justin Timberlake Experience .. and my shameful beer snob status

I have seen some great legends live in concert over the years.  Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, One Direction - to name a few.  But one in particular - Mr Justin Timberlake aka Justin Bart or JB as he goes by - was one for the ages. 

I got to enjoy this spectacular human with my beard wife Rose last night at the Prudential Center, in the city of dreams, Newark NJ.

The Christmas Glitter Bomb

Its that time of year again.  A time when people and family members that you haven't talked to, well, since last Christmas, reach out with open arms and send you their annual Christmas card.  We took part this year as we now have a newborn.  We both felt obliged to show off our little one to everyone on our wedding list and beyond.  It felt nice.  It's more of a hey-look-how-cute-our-kid-is behind a Merry Christmas message.  Regardless, our card was a simple photo that did NOT have a surprise waiting as you opened up the envelope. A surprise that jumps out at you and says "SURPRISEEEEEE!!!oh and merry christmas"  I'm talking about the glitter bomb.  You all know who you are.  

The Perineal Massage..

My wife is approaching her 37th week of pregnancy.  Apparently, in your 37th week you are supposed to begin massaging your perineum.  "What's a perineum", you asked as so did i?  The perineum is basically the taint.  "Ahhhh.. ok.  I get it.  But massage it??", is what i asked.  Yes, massaging it helps with the pain when the baby crowns during childbirth.  "So just rub it or sumthin?" (in Chip Chipperson voice .. Opie and Anthony fans anyone??)  Not quite.. 
Here are the instructions on how to successfully massage your perineum:
