We get the annual zoo membership and try to go as often as possible. I agree, that is a great time to go.

i am a comic book nerd and thought X-men first class and Wolverine Origins were great until Avengers. Avengers is in its own league. I can't wait to watch it tonight.

I was just thinking about this the other day…
As performed by Bill Cosby; this is one of the better standup routines on Fatherhood I’ve encountered.


(Just thought y’all might rather listen to someone that is actually funny as opposed to hearing me attempting to be …)






“ My wife woke me up 6:00 in the morning.

She said, "I want you to go downstairs and cook breakfast for the children."

And I looked at the clock and I said, "Dear, it's 6:00 in the morning."

She said, "Exactly. Go down and cook for the children. They have to go to school."

I said, "Yes, but to eat at 6:00, isn't that bad for your stomach? I mean, they just ate twelve hours ago."

My wife said, "Bill, get out of that bed and go downstairs and cook breakfast for your children!!"

I said, "Well, I don't know what they want to eat."

She said, "It's down there! Now you get out of the bed!"

And I said, "But where are the pans? Do we have pans to cook with?"

She said, "Bill, I'm not talking to you anymore! You ask another stupid question, so help me God, I'll get the shotgun out of the closet and blow your face off!!"

I said, "Well, there's no need to become violent about this. You seem to be having trouble intellectualizing on where the cooking apparel is."

So I fell back to sleep again. The next thing I knew, there was a bucket of ice water being shaken over my head, and this woman, that I've been married to for some 17 years, was standing over me like this. [makes angry face at audience]

"Now, you get up and cook some breakfast or you're gonna wear this bucket of ice water!!!"

So I said, "You're serious, aren't you?"




So I got up. Needless to say, I was angry. And I went downstairs without putting on my robe. Standing there in my pajamas, and I'm talking to myself.

I said, "Get these, go down and cook breakfast, but it's six o'clock in the morning," [angrily cooking breakfast] and I slam the pans down.

Blam!

…on the stove. I slam them down and go to the refrigerator and look around and I get to the damn bacon and the sausage, cooking breakfast, six o'…

Blam!

…in the morning, and I grab the- you have to be careful with eggs
[sets them down gently, then goes back to being angry]

"God! I have to cook breakfast!

Boom!!"

I turn around. The first one down was the four-year-old. The child looked lovely. Cute little face, clean. Hair in little braids, little things, you know.

"Good morn', Daddy."

And I said, "What do you want for breakfast!?"

The four-year-old has the ability to see through and find the wrong thing. The child saw through my body what was behind me. She saw the chocolate cake.

She said, "Can I have the chocolate cake?"

And I said, "Chocolate cake, where?"

She said, "Chocolate cake behind you."

And I looked... and there was chocolate cake! The child wanted chocolate cake for breakfast! How ridiculous! And I said... and someone in my brain looked under chocolate cake and saw the ingredients:

Eggs!
Eggs are in chocolate cake!
And milk!
Oh goody!
And wheat!
That's nutrition!

"What do you want?"

"Can I have some chocolate cake?"

"Chocolate cake coming up." [imitates slicing sound] Sliced it for her and served it.

"Now, you need something to drink with the chocolate cake, something breakfast... grapefruit juice!"

[Woman in audience] No-o-o!

[Cosby] This is not your child!

So I give the child a glass of grapefruit juice and chocolate cake --- nutrition. Eggs, milk, and wheat in the chocolate cake. And... I didn't have to cook. And the other four came downstairs. And when they came downstairs... Those of you who have children, you've seen them come downstairs for school. [imitating sluggish children] And they got to the kitchen. [imitating sluggish children] They saw the four-year-old eating chocolate cake.

And they said, "Dad! Where did she get the chocolate cake?"
And they went to the child and said, "How did you get chocolate cake?"

She said, "Dad give me chocolate cake!"

And they looked at me and said, "Father... could we… have chocolate cake?"

And their father said, "Chocolate cake coming up!!"
Four slices --- [imitates slicing sound] --- and grapefruit juice!

And five children sat at breakfast and the morning music was playing [imitating bass guitar] and they were eating chocolate cake and singing songs to me:

"Dad is great!
Give us the chocolate cake!"

And we had a ball until...
she came down like this. [makes angry face at audience]
And when she saw what the children were eating...

I've always heard about people having a conniption, but I've never seen one.
You don't want to see 'em!
My wife's face... split!
The skin and hair split and came off of her face so that there was nothing except the skull! And orange light came out of her hair and it lit all around! And fire shot from her eye sockets and began to burn my stomach!

And she said, "Where did they get chocolate cake from?!?"

And I said, "They asked for it!!"

And the children, who had been singing praises to me…
lied on me…
and said, "Uh-uhh!! We asked for eggs and milk, and Dad made us eat this!!!"

And my wife sent me to my room, which is where I wanted to go in the first place.
So you see?
We are dumb, but we are not so dumb.
It takes great thinking and work to keep from working. "

Afternoon Guys.

Hope you are all having a great Friday.

It's been a busy few days here with Sports Day in Canada tomorrow. WE are taking part in the grand opening celebration of a new arena complex tomorrow by setting up having 21 different sport groups display there wares and have a few offer demonstrations of there sport. Our event was selected to be part of the national TV coverage so if anyone you have access to CBC tomorrow afternoon watch for the reports from the new Grant-Harvey Center.

If any of you were fans of the old Minnesota North Stars you may remember Danny Grant and Buster Harvey. That is who the complex is named after.

20 people deep in line just to get into clerk's office to pay vehicle taxes. Usually, I don't wait until the last day. A bad lesson learned.

A rainy Friday and everyone is trying to recover from the last month of chaos so they all took the day off. Only one other person in the office and I think I will leave it to him and call it an afternoon myself. Just enough time for a quick nap before the kids and SWMBO get back from the homeschooling group meeting.

One of Bill's best routines.

That's nothing. Try a Minnesota DMV the Friday before the fishing opener.

I'm sure it wasn't that bad. I'm used to timing it better to be able to walk in without any wait.

Hey guys,

Off the boards for a while. For about a week, the weather down here is nothing but rain. Grass looks green but overall a bit depressing. Was going to go to the Keys for a day but why bother.

See a lot of dads are at the World this week. Hope everyone has a great time. A lot of other groups are also down there. To those running the 10 miler, good luck. Am jealous that I can't get away for a quick fix. Not jealous of running but missing meeting up with everyone.

To paraphrase the Animals, "I got to get out of this place if its the last thing I ever do."

You are totally rockin' the grandparents role with the Ice Cream.

Then get those kids wild... and hand 'em back to Bambi!




j/k Bambi... Let Barry look after the over sugared munchkins.

Watched Avengers on the DVD. This makes my 3rd time, with two at the movie theater. While it is still a good movie, it was even better on the big screen with the the big sound.

Not too much traffic here today. Last weekend of marathon soccer, and then it's off to WDW next week while soccer takes two weekends off for Fall Break. Have a great weekend.
