Morning Wit on a frosty Monday...

Man I love watching the walking dead on a Monday. I was getting my shit together in my cubicle this morning and the woman who works across from me was going about her business of getting her act together. Then the horror, the horror. She was out on Friday, supposedly sick, but I know she has a new boyfriend, so who really knows? Anyway that is gossipy and I try to stay away from that. So last Thursday, in the morning she got a large tea from a fast food joint and that has been marinating on her desk since then. She comes in this morning with another large drink from the same joint and damn if she didn't get all confused and drink out of that old ass nasty drink. She is outside the back door now gaging and trying to puck that nasty shit out. Yeah it's disgusting, but it is freaking entertaining. I love a Monday like this...

From a historical standpoint, we got some cool events. Joseph Pulitzer died in 1911 which was ashame cause it would have been noteworthy to see what he would have said about how the press got involved in promoting WWI. It's a sad lesson we still haven't learned. You don't use newspaper reporters to sell a war.

Muhammad Ali (Cassius Clay) won his first professional fight in 1960. Freaking 1960. Hey I love the guy and I have watched many of his fights on the espn classics channel. The best is Richard Pryor talking about Ali in his stand ups. And if you ass isn't listening to Richard Pryor, you need to be slapped. Dude is the shinizzle. One of the best ever at saying it like he saw it. Some real wit there...

1993 - A group of U.S. athletes were attacked by skinheads in Germany. Why is this important? I can tell you this, Americans get attacked all the time by skinheads over there. It's like the south and the north in this country. Some people in German have not gotten over that WWII thing yet. Believe it. No one likes it when you walk up in their country and take their shit. No matter how right it was.

1998 - The space shuttle Discovery blasted off with John Glenn on board. Glenn was 77 years old. In 1962 he became the first American to orbit the Earth. I bet they will not do this shit again. Can you imagine if Glenn was on the shuttle when that shit fell apart in the atmosphere? How freaking stupid would NASA look then? And why they hell are they launching geriatrics in space anyway? Do we really need to know what effects space has on the 65 and above crowd? I mean how many more are we going to put up there? Seriously isn't this something that we could figure out when the situation up there is a little more commercial? You know when people are constantly heading up for martini's on the moon? And you know that shits coming. It is the only way for space to get on that fast track to exploration.

Alright, let's all remember Joe Albero Licks Balls and smile cause the week is what it is.
