Slaughterhouse Christmas Special - Epic Meal Time

Absolute proof that a man needs a woman in his life ... eventually.

UPDATE: To the women whom have written saying this is gross and disgusting: Please read what I wrote! Men need women ... or they turn out like this! I think it was Woody Allen who said that without women, men are pigs. Of course. he also said that women were insane without men!

Memory Lane

While looking under my bed for a dropped pen, I discovered some CDs I had forgotten even existed. As I was about to run some errands, I grabbed one put it in my car’s CD player and took off.

Here come old flattop he come grooving up slowly

He got joo-joo eyeball he one holy roller …

The Beatles and Abbey Road: Man, did that bring back memories.

Almost 30 years ago, I was in England taking exams to see if I could qualify to study for a degree from Cambridge. There was a break between written exams and I was sitting around with a few of the professors.

Prof: So, Monte, if you knew you were going to be stranded on an island for years and years what 2 albums would you like to have with you?

M3: Wow … that means there would be electricity! (No laughter.) Okay. Two albums ... hmmmmm … Beethoven’s 9th and Abbey Road.

Prof: (Gulping) Abbey Road?

M3: I love it. It brings back great memories.

Prof: (Raised eyebrows) I found some of the lyrics a bit cheeky.

M3: Cheeky?

Prof: Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl

Someday I'm going to make her mine??????

M3: So you HAVE listened to it?!?!?

When we went back to exams, he told me that the conversation was also part of the interview.

Yes, I was accepted but never attended.

The next day, after walking around London for 10 hours, I went back to my hotel room and who was being interviewed on BBC TV? Paul McCartney! An obvious sign from heaven.

What two albums/CDs would you choose?

This is Not That

“A” is not “B”

Kindness is not weakness

Niceness is not kindness

Friendliness is not friendship

Facts are not the truth

Talking is not communicating

Potential (“having promise”) is not performance

Preferences are not convictions

Faith is not magic

Failure is not final

Impartiality is not indifference

Calm is not peace

Confidence is not competence

Procrastination is not patience

Charity is not compulsory

Ignoring the faults of others is not “believing the best”

Running from death is not seeking after life

"Christmas is not your birthday"
