Do I have to stop making Checkpoint Charlie jokes just because Checkpoint Charlie hasn’t existed in over 20 years?

Nothing like reading two notices of your own death. Except for reading a notice of your own death.

Not my death exactly, but Joe Schmitt’s death. And another Joe Schmitt’s death.
Thanks to Google Alerts on “joe schmitt” I know that 2 different Joseph Schmitts have died in the Chicago area in the last few months. One even had the same middle initial as me. The whole thing is a bit unsettling, especially since one was a murder-suicide where the Joe Schmitt also took the life of his son.

Anyone else run into this?

Reindeer control is the most important issue facing our great nation. Call your congressman today.

Forget the Naughty List— if Santa only brought presents to kids who brushed and flossed that night, he’d be done in 10 minutes.

I had to cut through the perfume floor of Macy’s, so now I won’t be able to taste food for a week.

I called 9-1-1, but they told me that Paul McCartney replacing Kurt Cobain in Nirvana is not a hate crime and to stop calling.

Get it together, ad writers!

From my friend Chris:

I saw an ad for United that says “We’re going places. More than 370 to be exact.” Ummmmmmmmmmmm how is that exact? That’s like making a cake with a recipe that says “Add some eggs. More than one to be exact. And some flour. More than a tablespoon to be exact.” GET IT TOGETHER, AD WRITERS!

No, Facebook, I don’t want to pay you to make sure my friends see this post, and I never will, so please stop asking.
