It’s Wednesday….Time for Yakkin’ With YaJagoff!

We are yakkin with Ron Kantrowitz of Mugshots about his art. He’s done artwork for many famous Pittsburghers but… his real claim to fame is he designed my “Above the Fries” book cover!

Aaaaand in Comes Fayette County

yj-VanityPlate

So, just as I’m sitting there thinking how proud of myself I am for driving almost the entire Ohio Turnpike yesterday and passing EVERY opportunity for a MickyD’s burger and fries, I realize….I ain’t got nothing to post on the blog for tomorrow (today).

Then, in walks Fayette County into my news updates.  That County is as regular as my Uncle on dates, prunes and bran muffins for blog material.

Excerpt from Post-Gazette

State police in Uniontown have charged a 45-year-old Point Marion man with hurling a vanity license plate, with the word “Jesus” on it, at his 47-year-old brother last month during a domestic dispute.

Full article here.

The brother was left with a “severe laceration” and had to be treated by EMS according to KDKA-TV.

The obvious question… did the brother hand the license plate back, after being hit by it, and turn the other cheek or are these 2 guys those “selective religious” peeps that only use the rules when it’s convenient?  Like the rule that says “Thou shalt embed the Word of Jesus into they brother’s brain…litterally.

Our SJU (Special Jagoff Unit – Fayette Bureau) suggests that the brothers could have a history of making a few license plates in their day, if ya know what I mean.  In addition, there is rumor that they will be sentenced to something as close to capital punishment as you can get for a simple assault charge, 10 years of driving around with a COEXIST bumper sticker on the fronts AND backs of their cars, bikes, quads, razor scooters or big wheels… whatever they use to cruise the town of Point Marion.

Hey, BTTTLP (Brother that threw the license plate), next time, learn something from everyone’s favorite TV adjudicator, Judge Judy, and “throw” the book at your brother!  It thumps the head harder and leaves almost no bruises.  (Just ask my 8th grade nun Sister Anecita…as a woman of God, she was an expert at throwing books at heads.)

Seems like this is gonna make the gag secret Santa gifts fun this year. You’re getting all NERF toys, YaJagoffs!

Daylight Saving Time Jagoffery

YJ-DaylightSavingTime_Stove

If you’re late for work today and you claim “forgot to change my clock” as an excuse, we’re calling the Bull$#@ card on ya.  Just about everything re-sets itself these days… except of course, battery operated clocks and the microwave and stove. Why does the microwave need a clock anyway?

By the way, if you say you’re exhausted because you lost that hour of sleep over the weekend, again, calling the Bull$#@ card on ya.

And how about the work-time lost due to DST… we know about the March Madness people wasting time at work but how many work-hours are lost by people standing around the office last Friday searching the internet and arguing over the “Is it spring FORWARD?” question!

And, ya know how you go to a Penguins game and some first-timer thinks he’s gonna be funny buy yelling, “How much time is left?” just as the period clicks down to the one-minute mark and then the PA guy announces, “One-minute remaining in the period… one minute?” I guran-dam-tee that, if you were awake around 11pm-midnight, you or someone that you were with, looked at the time and said something like “yeah but it’s REALLY midnight cuz we change the clocks ahead.”  I’m  also fairly certain that’s the same person that, just a few weeks ago walked into work and asked, “Cold enough for ya?

By the way, it is NOT “Daylight Savings Time.”

But the biggest jagoffery associated with Daylight Saving Time? The mismatched stove and microwave clocks. Each year, I dress in my clock-changing combat gear including Gatorade-filled-camel-pack, and prepare to do battle with the appliances. Like a NASA astronaut, I run through repetitive scenarios practicing the motions of changing each clock individually. And then I load my pointer fingers like an old-western gun-slinger and go into battle.  With various yoga moves, non-yoga moves, face scrunches, a choice of swear words and some tongue-biting, I try to get the microwave and stove clocks to match.  I cannot rest until they match. Typically, after a fair amount of stress sweat and painful finger tips, I get them and then I stand down until October!  Yes, I safely secure my appliance battle gear under lock and key because there are children in the home!

Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy do we put ourselves through this??  Some say it’s the government and an energy thing, some say it’s a Farmer’s Almanac thing and, quite honestly, most people have no idea and make stuff up!!!  Look, I just got used to writing 2015 on my checks.  Thank GAWD I don’t have to write the time of day on anything or tell time via my stomach or dog’s stomach. Can we PLEASE lose this stupid clock-changing stuff, Ya Jagoffs?
