Yakkin’ With Ya Jagoff! – Country Music Singer, Chris Higbee


Welcome to a SPECIAL “Yakkin’ With Ya Jagoff!” segment.

We are at Bubba’s Burgers with Pittsburgh Country music dude, Chris Higbee. He has a new song.. but, more importantly, where’s the craziest place he’s been asked to play the fiddle? And, what was it like growing up playing the “fiddle?”

The Rush Hour Cycling “Gang”



It’s been a looooooooooooong day at work.  You can’t wait to get home.  And you know that there will be some jags in your way… bulldozers, buses, overloaded trucks… but a bunch of cyclers?  Below is the tweet that accompanied this photo:

Really, the whole lane during rush hour! Nothing like driving home at >20 mph on the way home!

Yes!  We know the whole idea of “share the road” with the cyclers.   And, (just as most people preface inflammatory  comments that they are about to make) SOME OF OUR BEST FRIENDS RIDE BICYCLES.  But really?  Bunching up and holding traffic back (not just at the stop light)?

Hope that YOUR hearts and blood vessels feel good doing this because, just so ya know, driving behind your group has been cited by BOTH of our Jagoff cardiologist buddies as causing the same amount of stress on MY heart as sprinting up Sycamore Street with 2 bags of groceries, a gallon of milk and a 5 lb bag of kitty litter.

And by the way.. notice we APPROPRIATELY called yinz all CYCLERS and not BIKERS (riding motorcycles).

To be 100% truthful, if you were a group of tattooed, sleeveless, denim-vested, over-sized, unhelmeted BIKERS, we would have been too afraid to take say ANYTHING!  But since you’re skinny, little, no-hair-on-you-arms-and-legs CYCLERS, we’re saying.. get outta the way… you’re in between me a cold beer and 4 slices of pepperoni pizza, Ya Jagoffs!


Thanks to @biggdeck on Twitter for the pic and for being our honorary Jagoff Catcher!

Tired of Those Highmark vs. UPMC TV Ads??? We Have It!



For those of you that are still in the Western Pennsylvania area, you know about the fight between Highmark and UPMC and how it has spilled over on to our television sets and internet.  If you’re an ExPat, be glad that you’re not forced to watch this mess.

To both sides have a point?  Yep.

Do we care who’s right?  Nope.. it’s waaaaaaaaaay too in tense for this silly blog.

Do we care when the TV commercials come up incessantly on our televisions and online vidoes… SO MUCH THAT we are begging for mud-slinging political ads?  The kind where they use silly words and graphics like the one below?  YEPPPIR!!!! (see our previous Jagoff post about Political Ads here.)


The point is, both UPMC and Highmark have taken this argument to the street… each trying to gain public support for their cause.  Unfortunately, even the people that are passionate about one side or the other are getting tired of seeing expensive commercials, at prime-rate time …. as, at least one of them, laid off staff stating the need to cut budgets.

Well, we took a shot at making these TV commercials more palatable and interesting.  We have re-mixed one UPMC and one Highmark commercial for your pleasure!  And who is HAPPIER than Will Ferrell in the movie “Elf?”  He makes everyone get along!  Watch the videos below.

Remake of Highmark “3 Guys In A Diner” Commercial (If you don’t see the video box below, click HERE to watch.)


Remake of UPMC’s ” “Lady On The Phone” Commercial (If you don’t see the video box below, click HERE to watch.)

Ya know what we say?  Let’s do something REASONABLE to settle this thing once and for all!!!    Let’s have a corn-hole tournament or a chili cook-off or some type of winner-take all Fantasy Football tournament!!!  Or how about sitting down with a beer and a Primanti’s sandwich???

Either way PA-LEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZE stop wasting money on these STOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPID commercials, Ya Jagoffs!
