Game Night Will Never Be The Same

1 Aug

August 1, 2020

I’m on Facebook because, let’s face it, I’m just as bad as you. So as I was scrolling down my feed, this ad for a new game came by.

I did not click on that link. Last time I clicked on a random link it only took three minutes before some Ukrainian gangster stole my identity. For all you wondering, this is why in the summer of 2018 this blog suddenly became

Рік грошей містера Блогу, яким ви їдете (Rik hroshey mistera Blohu, yakym vy yidete).*

Anyway, it’s a game that let’s you play as your dog! I have no idea how that can be any fun at all, but that has to be tons of fun, right? RIGHT??? After all, just think of all the great things your dog does: 

  • sleeps
  • eats
  • poops
  • sniffs butts
  • poops
  • eats
  • sleeps

OK, I know what you are thinking, “Mr. Blog, come on. that’s your life. Everyday, to a T.” Well, yeah, you got me. Add in some night terrors and random sweating and yep, that’s my life. 

But now I can have another life, my dog’s life. The only thing stopping me is the fact that I don’t own a dog, but so what? Who doesn’t want to be a dog? Except, everybody, I mean. Don’t get me started on cat owners.

Well, when this game popped up on my feed I have to be honest and say that my first response was very funny but not particularly in good taste. (No, it was not a shih tzu joke.) So if you want to read the joke, you will have to run it through Google Translate. And if you do, don’t blame me. I warned you. It may be tasteless but it is funny….

Чудово! Тепер я можу нарешті стукнути цю суку по сусідству! (Chudovo! Teper ya mozhu nareshti stuknuty tsyu suku po susidstvu!)

I should probably warn you that my response was NSFW. I should have probably have warned you earlier but hey, I’ll just blame that on the Ukranian gangster again. Is it any better if I tell you that I meant “bitch” as in a female dog?

The Saturday Comics: 5 Comic Covers Featuring Jimmy Olsen And A Gorilla.

27 Oct

October 27, 2012

Halloween this year, annoyingly, falls on a Wednesday. Do you trick or treat on a school night? Do it the Friday after? Or the Friday before? Or both? And even worse, this year my part of the USA is expecting Hurricane Sandy to hit right before Halloween, meaning that it just might get wiped out totally. So judging from the low traffic online, I’m guessing that tonight is party night. So in the spirit of Halloween, here is the ghost of a previous post.

We skewered Lois Lane yesterday, so let’s give Jimmy Olsen a shot.

This one is simple. Here are five classic covers featuring Jimmy Olsen and a gorilla, and sometimes as a gorilla.

I have to wonder why Superman would ever leave his own title, given all the strange stuff going on in Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen comics. Where is the dignity?

Did you see that last issue? FREE! ICE CREAM COUPON WORTH TEN CENTS! Not bad for a comic that only costs a dime.

I like gorillas as much as the next guy, as long as Jimmy Olsen isn’t the next guy, but I have to wonder what is going on here? On three of those covers he turns into a gorilla (or jungle man, twice), on one cover he is marrying a gorilla, and on the last he is filming a gorilla. Does he have some secret room where he keeps his gorilla stash? Does he sleep in a furry gorilla suit? Is he filming gorilla porn in that issue? I don’t want to know! And if I were Superman, I’d just leave him alone. If Jimmy wants to switch bodies with a gorilla so much that they’d reprint the same story almost 100 issues apart, I say let him. Superman, you only carry your “pal” so far.
