Here's something this Southern boy has never seen before....
Last night we were driving down the tollway and suddenly traffic just stopped. It turned out maintenance crews had closed 2 lanes of traffic in order to remove some cobblestone ice. Bright sunlight has already melted most of the ice on our roads, but in the shadows the remaining ice somehow morphed into this lumpy mess. You hit that at 70 mph and you're in for a wild ride!
Back in my yout when I first saw one of these fugly sweaters I knew they were destined to someday become the theme for a holiday party. That day has arrived. The hottest Christmas party theme in 2013 I've now learned is the "Ugly Christmas Sweater" party. My question: How inebriated do you have to be to put on one of these?
Well, here's one way to rub elbows with the world's leaders....
....just show up at Nelson Mandela's Memorial event and pawn yourself off as a deaf sign language interpreter.
It turns out the guy on the right who is supposed to be signing for the deaf is just faking it. He's just flapping his arms and pointing this way and that. I wonder what the deaf people in the crowd were thinking?
"I want to thank the insane penguin for the Chevrolet hubcaps, the fugly sweater, and this 'gently used' jock strap. More egg nog? Bonjour, dudes."
Happy Hump Day. :)
