Huh What?



This picture was sooooooooooooooo exciting when it came in on Facebook yesterday, that it HAD to bump today’s regularly schedule post!

Yes!  This is BREAKING JAGOFF NEWS!  This just in!

This photo was posted with the following simple statement::

I think someone flunked math!

FACT!!!!  LOL.. a big community celebration is happening in the community of Bessemer, Lawrence County, Pa!!

Now, it’s hard for ME to try and pick on this because, as you know from reading these posts, typos are easy to miss. But, I’d have to think that, when we raise the 100-year celebration banner of 97 and a half years from now, I am PROBABLY going to have someone check over my work for typos… including the math!

But wait.. there’s that age old debate of, when you turn 1, are you really 1 or are you really 2 because you are starting your SECOND year of life?  Never mind.. that doesn’t work out as an alibi.

So does the sign mean, someone MISSED the the century celebration LAST year so they are making up for it THIS year?  OR does it mean that someone doesn’t know how to place 2012 and 100 into columns and just add down the columns?  (Our favorite Math teacher, Sister Anecita would NOT be proud!)


If you go to the Century Celebration Facebook page, you’ll see this shield….which says 1913-2013.




Surely there is some good story behind this but WE can’t figure it out.  Would love to hear from some Bessmer-er-ers including the sign painter (I’d certainly be double checking HIS/HER invoice for math mistakes!  But in the meantime, all that WE know is its great entertainment for the rest of us.  And the best news is, now all of you know about the Bessemer Centennial thanks to the mistake on the sign.

Congratulations on 100 OR 101 year Bessemer!!  Have fun at the celebrations!

Just gotta tell ya, thank GAWD nobody from your town is in charge of the  Today Show Willard Scott “Smuckers” 100 year-old Birthday segment, Ya Jagoffs!

How To Get A Guy To Watch The Royal Birth Coverage



Something a little different today……

Approximately 2 billion people watched Kate Middleton marry Prince William on TV.  For perspective, 130 million people typically watch the NFL Superbowl.

Maybe a little less, but still a global majority, have been glued to TV, Facebook and Twitter awaiting the results of the Royal Birth.   My guess…. most of those were female.  A small percentage of them were senior citizen men, married greater than 45 years, who sat with their wives and PRETENDED that cared, but were secretly sleeping.  (Like they pretend to enjoy going to the grocery store and end up in the parking lot sleeping in the car.)

Here are my thoughts on how to increase the number of males interested in the Royal Birth:

Start a “Royal Uncle” Fantasy League – choose the best 8 male celebrities who you believe will be sober, bathed, shaved and available to be in London the next 3 months.

Coordinate betting on the chances that one of the groomsman, from when Kate and William  got married,  shows up to hold the baby, for the first time, with one of the Royal bachelor party strippers AS HIS FIANCE.

Name the baby Big Ben and NOT after the iconic clock! From Jay McCullough

They plan to name the kid after a food item, like Nachos or Pizza or Beer Heather Thompson

Highlights of sideline cheerleaders and large-bellied, drunk, hairy men, lining the roads outside the hospital, that have their naked torso’s painted with “GOOD LUCK and GOD BLESS Baby Prince.”

Have all female viewers make the SLIGHTEST hint, that “Special Favors” could be available that evening if her man watches the Royal Birth coverage with her (picture Pavlov’s dog here watching the baby coverage because the dog doesn’t know she’s really lying.)  From Mary Fran Coulter

Fart monitors in the hospital maternity ward waiting room chairs and a GoPro camera mounted in the corner…..all seats wired with sensors that immediately trigger an on-screen, green-cloud graphic over the head of anyone in the waiting room that passes Royal gas.  Then take bets on “Who ate it?”

Now THAT’s how you get a guy to be interested in the Royal Baby Coverage, Ya Jagoffs!
