Today a guest blog!!

And it’s REAL simple. 

Yesterday on Twitter a message came across and it was perfect for today’s blog post given yesterday’s afternoon drive time weather conditions.

Snow tips for driving jagoffs:

  1. 4WD helps to go, not to stop, Ya Jagoff!
  2. Brush off your head lights so we can see your lazy ass, Ya Jagoff!
  3. Get off the damn phone, Ya Jagoff!

Special thanks to @BurghJack for the blog post, @clarksonrulez for reminding me of the above parody book cover and @RgGerlach for creating the parody book cover.  Of you’re on Twitter, follow them… good Twitter-er-ers.

The Exploding Giant Rubber Duck

YJ-Taiwan

Remember the Giant Rubber Duck that came to town and caused everyone to go absolutely bonkers?

RubberDuck2

Well, that same duck was in Taiwan, for the second time and was ruined FOR THE SECOND TIME!!

Here’s video of the exploding duck:

See the full article here.

Seriously Taiwan??  Ya broke the thing twice???

That duck came to Pittsburgh during one of the most raucous times… the Pirates making it to the playoffs for the first time in 20 years.  People were jumping off of bridges, setting off fireworks… there were even angry Cincinnati Reds fans here that could have sabotaged the duck as it sat, (get this one) like a SITTING DUCK on the Allegheny River.  It even survived angry Steelers fans who were crazed over the Steelers horrible start to the season. As a matter of fact, I am fairly certain that the duck had a few Primanti Brothers sandwiches and even THOSE didn’t fill it with enough gas to make it explode.

This is our duck.  Blowing it up is not quite as sacrilegious as stepping on a Terrible Towel but it’s close.  I’t like the Steelers, once they are ours, for good or bad, they are always ours. … same with the Giant Rubber Duck.

Send back our duck Ya Jagoffs!

Thanks To All Of You – The Readers!

YJ-Birthday

We’re 4!!!  And the good news we STILL act our age!

Tomorrow, the anniversary of the 2011 NHL Winter Classic in Pittsburgh, is also the anniversary of this blog.  Mother Nature, who chose to let it be warm and rain on the game between the Penguins and Capitals was our first Jagoff post!

 

Hey Mother Nature,

It’s time for the Winter Classic – ya know, kind of a ”Chamber of Commerce  Moment.”

It’s s’posed to be SNOWING not raining, YA JAGOFF!!!

This year we added the Yakkin’ With Ya Jagoff video episodes to the blog.  The short interviews of interesting  Pittsburghers get posted every Wednesday.  The very first episode, with TC everyone’s favorite beer vendor, is below.

If you haven’t seen all of the “Yakkin’ With Ya Jagoff!” video interviews of Pittsburgh personalities, click HERE to get to the Ya Jagoff YouTube Channel!

It’s been fun doing this and it wouldn’t be fun if it wasn’t for all of you.  Thanks so much to all of you who read this silly stuff and a special thanks to those of you who SHARE it with others.  If you have one resolution, maybe it could be to invite 1 more new friend or family member to the blog?  That is, if you’re not proposing to lose weight, save more money or stop smoking.

Thanks and Happy New Year, Ya Jagoffs!!!!  (Meant that with love!)
