Bill O'Reilly

I was thinking about the best way to celebrate Bill O'Reilly signing a new contract that will keep him on television for the next four years. He'll get paid $10,000,000 a year just for his doing his "O'Reilly Factor" show.

The only thing that I think would be a satisfactory tribute to the man himself, would include introducing you to "Lil' O'Reilly". The kid does a spot on impression of the bigoted bag of hot air.

(March 16, 1922 - November 22, 2008)

Today we laid to rest a man who was a vital part of my life. John William "Bunky" Connolly was a man whose love for his country was only surpassed by the love for his family. With a smile that could brighten a room, Bunky was a warm spirit that was able to strike up a conversation with anyone, whether you were someone who had known him his entire life or the new cashier at Costco selling him a bunch of bananas (did you know that the savings on bananas alone will more than make up for the cost of the membership?).

Bunky lived a life of service to the United States of America, including time as a federal fire chief in Spain to time as a decorated United States Marine, earning two Purple Hearts during World War II after being shot twice.

There was no mistaking when Bunky entered a room. He would make everyone smile with his rhymes and jokes. And whether he knew you or not, the instant he met you, you felt like part of his family.

The ceremony was beautiful and full of tears. After tearful remembrance speeches from his children, we left to the cemetery to bury his ashes. After a solemn version of "Taps", there was an emotional delivery of the flag to Bertha by the United States Marines.

Even though these unfortunate circumstances brought the family together, many of us were there, and that's what Bunky loved most, our family spending time together.

To a fantastic father, grandfather and friend, we will miss you very much Bunky. I love you.

Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Back in April, I posted a blog where I discussed Grandmom telling a blowjob joke to us as we left her house in Maryland. I put a link that in the blog that led clickers, who thought they would be able to see a video of Grandmom telling the joke, to a video of Rick Astley singing his infamous "Never Going To Give You Up".

This phenomenon of tricking unsuspecting internet browsers into clicking a link leading them to a destination that they might find interesting, only to be led to Rick Astley's video, has been dubbed "RickRolling".

Well, if anyone watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, you saw the majestic float that Catroon Network prepared for the cartoon "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends". And if you're familiar with the format of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, you know that the floats stop, then they talk to the people on the float, or the people on the float will sing a song.

Well, the "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends" stops and they start singing the "Best Friends" song from their show. then the music stops, and Rick Astley comes out and sings "Never Going To Give You Up"! After he's done, one of the puppets on the float can be heard saying "I love RickRolling!"

Well done Cartoon Network, well done.
