Some Things Just Aren't Necessary, Ladies !

Saturday night (actually Sunday AM), I was on the computer with the television running in the background. A show came on and since I was busy, I didn't bother to change channels. As it turned out, it was a documentary on beauty pageants and a close-up of the women who enter them. One of the things I happened to notice was the number of women who had undergone breast enhancement surgery.

I am not a fan of breast augmentation. As any red-blooded American man will tell women, we are quite happy with whatever is available. Beside the fact that most surgeries of this nature are fairly obvious, it is also a dangerous procedure that, in most cases, isn't necessary.

Surgery such as breast reduction and breast reconstruction are understandable and necessary procedures. Augmentation surgery for flat chested women are also understandable procedures.

The number of women who opt for cosmetic breast surgery is overwhelming, leading me to believe that personality enhancement surgery or even a full frontal lobotomy may have been a wiser option. If women believe that this type of surgery is necessary to get a better job or be in the entertainment business, it's a sad thought, indeed. Moreover, it is even a sadder note if women think it's the key to a good relationship or marriage. The truth is that in most cases, men are just happy if you like them and any proverbial extras are just icing on the cake.

The Daytona 400 was run Saturday night and if you like Nascar stock car racing, you may have had mixed opinions about winner Tony Stewart, but you can't say the finish wasn't exciting. With Stewart and Kyle Bush racing to the checkered flag, Stewart attempted to make a pass and Busch blocked him. When Stewart attempted to pass Busch again, Busch moved to block again and the second block proved to be Busch's downfall and Stewart put him into the wall. See for yourself. (Remember to turn off my music playlist audio on my sidebar).

Today is former President George Dubya Bush's birthday and although I disliked his presidency, it is fitting to at least respect the office and wish him a happy birthday. I would like to thank him for keeping America out of any nucular wars. I would also like to congratulate his high school and college English teachers for turning out such an eloquent speaker.

This Date In History: 1415; Religious reformer Jan Hus is burned at the stake as a heretic by the Catholic Church. 1699; Pirate captain William Kidd is arrested in Boston. Sent to trial in England, he is convicted and hanged two years later. 1885; French biologist Louis Pasteur uses his newly developed vaccine against rabies to save the life of a young boy, Joseph Meister, who was bitten by a rabid dog.

1917; Arab forces rebelling against the Ottoman Empire capture the port of Al 'Aqabah with the help of British adventurer T. E. Lawrence, known as Lawrence of Arabia. 1978; Eleven people die when fire breaks out on a night train travelling from from Penzance to Paddington.

Picture Of The Day: I didn't have any picture subject in mind for today until I decided to comment on the beauty pageant documentary. Fortunately, as I am wont to do, I always have a file on women and the great photo shots and effects that are posted throughout the Internet. Pretty fortunate, eh?

Birthdays: Frida Kahlo, painter 1907, Andrey Gromyko (1909-1989), Soviet leader who served as Foreign Minister (1957-1985) and President of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) (1985-1988) 1909, Bill Haley, American singer 1925, Vladimir Ashkenazy, pianist 1937, George W. Bush, US president 1946.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) After watching the various headlines for the past two weeks, I've come to the conclusion to never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups. 2) Most women like silent men because they think they're listening. 3) Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day. 4) When I was a child, I woke one Saturday morning to read a note that Sister Jean and Brother Kirt had run away from home. They returned around 11:00 a.m. stating they changed their minds. When I looked into their bag that contained their food rations, I found one can of candied yams and no can opener. 5) I think that for every action, there is an equal and opposite government program.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:

A couple had been married for 50 years. They were sitting at the breakfast table one morning when the wife says, "Just think, fifty years ago we were sitting here at this breakfast table together." The old man said, I know! We were probably sitting here naked as a jaybird fifty years ago." Granny snickered, "Well, let's relive some old times."

Where upon, the two stripped to the buff and sat down at the table. The little old lady breathlessly said, "You know, honey, my nipples are as hot for you today as they were fifty years ago." Gramps said, "That doesn't surprise me dear, one's in your coffee and the other is in your oatmeal."

Toward the end of the golf course, Dave hit his ball into the woods, finding it in a patch of pretty yellow buttercups. Trying to get his ball back in play, he ended up thrashing just about every buttercup in the patch.

All of a sudden, in a flash and puff of smoke, a little old woman appeared. She said, "I'm Mother Nature! Do you know how long it took me to make those buttercups? Just for that, you won't have any butter for your popcorn the rest of your life. Better still, you won't have any butter for your toast for the rest of your life. As a matter of fact, you won't have any butter for anything the rest of your life!" Then, poof!...she was gone.

After Dave got a hold of himself, he hollered for his friend Fred. "Fred, where are you?" Fred yells back, "I'm over here, in the pussywillows." Dave yells back. "Don't Swing Fred! For God's sake, Don't Swing!!"

That's it for today my little tinker toys. More on Wednesday.

Stay Tuned !

As always, I enjoyed your entry today. The jokes and graphics are great.

Poor Kirt and little sis with no can opener! How sad....glad they decided not to run away after all.

Hope your 4th was grand. I stayed home but I was not bored. Johnny Walker and I chatted for a while.

Hugs, Rose

My daughter told me in an upper crust neighborhood girls were getting breast surgery for high school graduation. I find it hard to believe a doctor would perform that surgery but you never know. Money talks. It is sick that parents would even consider it. Funny jokes today.

I think it is weird what some women are willing to do their bodies. It is so obvious when you see an older lady with the chest of a 20 year old, or they have a bad surgeon they just look wrong. I guess to each his own. I did not see the race Saturday sounds exciting I am not a Tony Stewart fan though. Hope you had a good 4th.

I don't think women do augmentations for men as much as they do it for themselves, it makes them feel younger, sexier, and they look better in clothes (or so they think). I have not had anything done... yet, but I can certainly understand women wanting to FEEL better about themselves.

Thanks for posting the video of the Daytona 400, I missed the whole race, but I HEARD the ending was smashing!!! LOL!!

That Betty Boop is just SCARY!!!!!

LOVED the joke about the buttercups, etc.!! LOL!!

Julie said...

That last poster is just spookie, LOL. I remember running away as a kid. No one knew I had when I returned home, just thought I was out playing, sigh.

Martha said...

Great entry as always Jimmy. The scariest part - can you imagine how ridiculous these ladies are going to look when they're elderly? LOL!
Speaking of weird and creepy, your pic of the day is too!

Pamela said...

I think everyone has a new set out here in CA. I feel left out! LOL!

Hope you had a good 4th!

The cosmetic surgery thing is big business. And like Paula said, some high school seniors are getting new boobs (or noses) for a graduation gift. This world is crazy! Sort of a scary thing, espcially when you're not completely sure of the results. Linda in cooler Washington
