It's Hump Day And Not A Minute Too Soon !

Multiple law enforcement sources tell TMZ the LAPD is already treating Michael Jackson's death as a homicide, and they are focusing on Dr. Conrad Murray. Law enforcement sources say the evidence points to the anesthesia Propofol as the primary cause of Jackson's death.

TMZ first reported that vials of Propofol were found in Jackson's home after he died. Law enforcement sources say there is already "plenty of powerful evidence" linking Dr. Murray as the person who administered the drug to Jackson. The evidence includes various items found in Jackson's house, including the Propofol, an IV stand and oxygen tank.

The death of Michael Jackson confirmed three things that I always believed. His father, Joe Jackson, is an uneducated, profiteering, low life. Michael's sister, Latoya, is a limelight seeking, psychotic and Debby Rowe is a money grubbing cow who should have been given a lobotomy and sterilized years ago.

My pal, Linda in Washington, held a contest for readers to guess what was the item she had pictured. As it turned out, it was a pear chip and my pal Robin was the closest guess with "pear." Now I ask you, what in the hell is a pear chip? I've heard of potato chips, chocolate chips, fish n chips, even cow chips, but pear chips? My guess was an alien nipple. Everyone poo-pooed the idea but here's my proof and I rest my case.

This Date In History: 1149; The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem is dedicated at the site where Jesus is said to have been entombed after his crucifixion. 1916; William Boeing and Conrad Westervelt found the Pacific Aero Products Company in Seattle. The following year they rename the company the Boeing Airplane Company.

1918; Near the Marne River in northeastern France, the second Battle of the Marne in World War I begins. The Allied victory in the three-week battle halts the German drive toward Paris. 1971; President Richard M. Nixon announces his plan to visit China as a step toward reopening relations with the country.

Picture Of The Day: Waves....I've seen many of them but not as breathtaking as these excellent photographs that Brother Kirt sent me. Here in Miami, most of the rogue waves always seem to wash up either boatloads of refugees or bodies, most of whom aren't very photogenic.

Nevertheless, we do get the occasional beautiful waves but none like these. Most of the waves I've seen at the beach only deposit sand in your swim trunks.

Birthdays: Rembrandt van Rijn, Dutch painter, draughtsman, and etcher who is considered the greatest Dutch artist, not only as a painter of religious scenes and portraits but also as a draughtsman and innovative etcher of formidable ability 1606, St Frances Xavier Cabrini, first US saint 1850, Iris Murdoch, novelist and philosopher 1919, Leon Lederman, physicist 1922, Jacques Derrida, philosopher 1930, Sir Harrison Birtwistle, composer 1934.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car. 2) After all the jokes i did about people mispronouncing words, I discovered that I say "warter' in lieu of water. What a dumb ass! 3) I told the doctor I broke my leg in two places. He told me to quit going to those places. 4) I think animal testing is a terrible idea. Besides, they'd just get all nervous and give the wrong answers. 5) Everyone needs to believe in something. I believe I'll have another beer.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Thanks to Brother Kirt for his contributions yo today's stories.

An elderly Italian man who lived on the outskirts of Rimini, Italy , went to the local church for confession. When the priest slid open the panel in the confessional, The man said, "Father, During World War II , a beautiful Jewish woman from our neighborhood knocked urgently on my door and asked me to hide her from the Nazis. So I hid her in my attic." The priest replied, "That was a wonderful thing you did, and you have no need to confess that."

The old man said, "There is more to tell, Father. She started to repay me with sexual favors. This happened several times a week, and sometimes twice on Sundays" The priest said, "That was a long time ago and by doing what you did, you placed the two of you in great danger, but two people under those circumstances can easily succumb to the weakness of the flesh. However, if you are truly sorry for your actions, you are indeed forgiven."

The old man said, "Thank you, Father. That's a great load off my mind. I do have one more question." The priest asked, "And what is that?" The old man said, "Should I tell her the war is over?''

An Army drill sergeant was known to be brusque with his men. His lieutenant, warning him to try to be more sympathetic, said, "I don't want to interfere with your discipline but when there is bad news to relate, please be more diplomatic.

Now, I have received bad news for one of your men, George Martin. It seems his father has been in a bad traffic accident. Please break the news carefully." The drill sergeant replied, "Yes, sir!"

At roll call, the sergeant says, "Fall in everyone. Martin, if you call home today and don't get an answer, it's your dad." After Martin finds out the truth, he goes crying away to his bunk.

The next day, the lieutenant reprimands the drill sergeant once more. He says, "Look, Sarge, this can't continue. If you can't think of a kinder way to deal with this kind of news, we'll eliminate this practice from roll call. Now I'm giving you one last chance. Gomez's mother died last night You know what to do." The drill sergeant replied, "No problem, lieutenant!"

At roll call that morning, the drill sergeant commanded, "All right men, fall in! All those with living mothers step forward!" And in a quieter tone, the drill sergeant said, "Not so fast, Gomez."

That's it for today my little pea pickers. It's Hump Day and AREA 51 beckons. Remember that the average woman would rather have beauty than brains, because the average man can see better than he can think.

More on Friday.

Stay Tuned !

Jimmy, why is Robin leaving comments as 'Anonymous'? We all know who she is.

I just am in shock that someone would actually use propofol outside of a hospital setting. It can be deadly so quickly. The doc does need to go away, anyone that would break their oath for a buck, well they are the bottom suckers for sure. I am absolutely in awe over theh wave photos. Sure wish I could take shots like those. I never heard of pear chips either.

What the hell is a pear chip?

I need to know.

Hugs, Rose

Martha said...

Pear chips? I think not - I think I'll have another beer too instead. Happy hump day Jimmy! What's not to love about a day by that name? Oh and love all the wave shots - we sure don't ever see anything like that here in our tiny wave state.

Martha said...
