Poem of the Day

Butt Prints in the Sand

One night I had a wondrous dream:
One set of footprints there was seen,
The footprints of my precious Lord,
But mine were not along the shore.

But then some stranger prints appeared,
And I asked the Lord, “What have we here?
Those prints are large and round and neat,
But Lord, they are too big for feet.”

“My child,” He said in somber tone,
“For miles I carried you alone.
I challenged you to walk in faith,
But you refused and made me wait.”

“You disobeyed, you would not grow;
The walk of faith you would not know.
So I got tired, I got fed up,
And there I dropped you on your butt.”

Because in life there comes a time
When you must fight, and you must climb,
When you must rise and take a stand,
Or leave your butt prints in the sand.”

This is absolutely incredible! I can't believe the way this dog can walk around. If a dog can do this, I'm sure we can train Matty Cakes to make his bed.

This is one of the funniest bits I've ever seen on The Colbert Report. It's Stephen Colbert getting to know the District of Columbia better. Hope you enjoy.

Joke of the Day Numero 2

Okay, so this is how I imagine this conversation went:

Walmart Employee: 'Hello 'dis be Walmarts, how can I help you?'

Customer: 'I would like to order a cake for a going away party this week.'

Walmart Employee: 'What you want on the cake?'

Customer: 'Best Wishes Suzanne' and underneath that 'We will miss you'.

Joke of the Day

So Jeff, Terry, and I were watching TV and they started droning on and on about the side effects. That reminded me of a classic E*Trade commercial. Figured I'd throw it up here and let everybody enjoy.

Those "Hot Dog Fingers" are a serious issue.

Man Card

I am very proud to say that I am a holder of The Man Card. Now you may ask, what precisely is the Man Card? Of course if you ask that, you must not be a card carrying member. But I think the Man Card is an important thing for all men to hold. Really the Man Card itself isn't necessarily anything important and it's certainly more of a figurative thing than anything actually tangible. The Man Card, however, is evidence that you are a man. Of course I think you typically know if you're a card carrying member or not. You recognize your brute manliness and realize that you are in fact a man.

A Man Card is earned, not bestowed upon an individual as a gift. I think the first important qualification is you do in fact have to be male. I'm sorry ladies, that may break your hearts, but at best you can only earn honorable mention for manliness. The core of what earns you a Man Card I think is found in all of the things that makes little boys tick. Is it gross? It's probably manly and can you get a card. Does it scratch? Yeah, that's pretty manly. Got some gnarly scars? Chicks dig scars and chicks definitely dig Man Card Holders. Do you roughhouse? Sometimes you gotta fight to earn that card, but earn it you will. Almost as great as picking on little brothers. Is it some crazy contraption you built with your mad MacGyver skills? Definitely gets you a card. Are you covered in hair? Count yourself a member. Is it dirty (and I mean that in the Mike Rowe Dirty Jobs kind of way)? Nothing we like more than being covered in dirt, count yourself in. Sports? Do you really need to ask? Oh and don't forget really great music. Also, good lingo, e.g. manformation-information useful to men (Hat Tip: Carson's Jordan, yeah, that's definitely a card carrying man right there) or the establishment of Man Law (hopefully if you were involved in such an action, it wasn't because you took actions that would bring into question any sort of Man Laws). Also, a Man Card holder is always a man's man.

Now I don't think a Man Card can ever really be revoked, I mean if you're manly enough to hold the card, you wouldn't be unmanly enough to ever lose it. Of course that doesn't mean men can't have a softer, gentler side. Seriously, there's nothing wrong with being a bit cultured. Also, I am very big on the respecting of women (but we won't really delve into that here, that's a topic for another day). A real man is always a gentleman. Keep it classy, that's my philosophy. However, at the end of the day remember you are a man and so treat yourself right. Come home and celebrate with a nice belch.

Dating Post

So I figure I'm trying to keep this blog pretty active so I wanted to write a quick blurb about my post on my personal blog entitled Dating Protocol. I figure it's something pretty relevant to most of the boys of 203 and most of our readers. I know a lot of you probably frequent my blog if you actually take the time to read this, but if not I figured this was a pretty good post to check out. Basically I talk about a lot of dating etiquette and such relative to a blog post I found in the New York Times. Anyway, I'd love to hear any opinions relative to the matter.
