Tattoos NOT for dogs

Wednesday, Apr, 3 2013

I've got a story coming up on the PhilCast today about a guy in North Carolina taking some heat for getting his dog a tattoo.

I don't think a dog should have to be put through this for the pleasure of an owner who thinks it's cool.

Oh this guy is trying to say he did it for I-D purposes. Ya, right. That's what a micro-chip is for.

And I was somewhat surprised to read that even PETA is OK with doing this.

If a dog owner doesn't go micro-chip for an I-D then perhaps a small tattoo marking would be okay with me, although it is not something I would ever do to any dog I own.

Going to the extent that this guy did here is just wrong in my opinion. You like tattoos then keep 'em on your own body and leave the ink off your dog.

Upside down on ketchup bottles

Tuesday, Apr, 2 2013

Since the Brewers took their time winning in extra innings on Opening Day Monday, we never got a chance to chat about the Easter weekend because of the short show following the game.

So today I'll open the PhilCast today with a recap and some stories about Easter egg hunts gone bad from around the country.

I did end up making a couple of varieties of sauces for Easter dinner, which brings me to today's blog subject: ketchup bottles.

In the course of meal prep I had occasion to open both a new mayo jar and a new bottle of ketchup. Could someone please invent a new way to seal the opening once you remove the plastic cap?

You know what I mean, right? There is a round piece of cardboard held on with a few tiny tabs wrapped around the outside of the opening.

As it turns out, these tiny tabs are nearly impossible for normal-sized human digits to grab and peel up, thus release the death hold the cardboard piece has on the opening of your ketchup bottle or mayor jar.

Inevitably after some swearing and numerous stabs at the little buggers I end up with ketchup or mayo on my fingers, having fought a diligent battle to simply get my new condiment container open!

At the very least they need to all be using that style that has a lift-up plastic flap you can grab and pull up rather than the little tabs on the side. The flap method doesn't always work either, but at least your odds of ketchup-covered fingers go down using that style.


Plus, I've gotta say for some reason I'm not a fan of those upside down ketchup bottles either. Give me my ketcup old-school thank you very much.

Opening Day

Monday, Apr, 1 2013

Enjoy hearing Brewers' baseball on HBY today as another baseball season kicks off at Miler Park this afternoon. After the game we'll pick it up with a shortened PhilCast show.
Being the day after Easter, I have a couple of dandy Easter stories for you to get you to 6:00 this evening.

"The War on Easter"

Friday, Mar, 29 2013

Yes, there is one.

Just like the war on Christmas, it seems we now have the makings of the war on Easter too. This world is just getting too damn politically correct.

MY world?
It's still Christmas.
It's still Easter.


DO NOT be fooled by this picture.

What you are looking at here is NOT a photo of kids at an Easter egg hunt event.

Nope.

Those are kids taking part in the Edmonds, Washington 'EGG hunt'.

No mention of the word Easter because the city removed that word. No, really. They did. And I've got a nice little audio HAPPY EASTER piece I am going to play for them and you on this afternoon's PhilCast show.

Happy EASTER everyone!
And since this is MY blog I would also like to remind those who care to believe to take some time this weekend and remember what Easter is really all about beyond the eggs and candy.

Urinal gaming

Thursday, Mar, 28 2013

Among the odd stories I plan to chat about on the Thursday PhilCast show....somewhere in there between the professional sleeper-wanted job opening story....the cussing bird story....the guy who shot a deer in a Wal-Mart parking lot story....there's this little gem; A gaming urinal.

That's right, no need for tech-toy downtime just because a guy has to pee at a baseball game....a minor league team next week unveils this urinal that gives a whole new meaning to 'live streaming' I guess.


Also Thursday, an update on how the recycling cart switch is going in Appleton, including a listener's complaint/suggestion about the process.

And Lips LaBelle will be in studio with the usual Thursday afternoon Hollywood news and gossip segment.

Sweet 16 tonight.
Go Marquette.
