Funny, But Oh So Very Wrong.

There are some things in life that are an almost certainty. One of those things is that people want to name streets, roads, bridges, schools, etc., after past United States Presidents. This is especially true for recent presidents.

In that regard there have been efforts to rename things in honor of former President Barack Obama.

We were not and are not fans of Obama, but no president deserves this:

The Milpitas City Council (California) voted Tuesday night to honor the 44th U.S. President and rename a major roadway Barack Obama Boulevard.

The proposal passed 3-2 and Milpitas Mayor Rich Tran was among those who opposed the new name for Dixon Landing Road — mainly because the road passes through an area of the city known for its putrid stench.

The eastern end of Dixon Landing Road runs through the city’s Sunnyhills Community. In 1956 it became among America’s first planned racially integrated neighborhoods under Mayor and civil rights leader Ben Gross.

But when the road heads west, it passes over Interstate 880 and leads to the Newby Island Landfill, a recycling and composting plant that’s consider the source of the city’s notorious odors. Bay Area motorists often get wafts of the stink zipping by the Dixon Landing exit on the freeway, and Milpitas residents have complained about the stink for decades.

Pro Se Follies: “Intentional Emotional Abuse.”

In the legal world, acting “pro se,” means a person is “for oneself, on one’s own behalf” and without an attorney.

Often, pro se litigants and filings are fun to read and somewhat strange.

On August 26, 2019, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals confirmed the ruling of a lower court in the case of Ryan Anderson (the person acting pro se) v. Jason Pollard.

Anderson and Pollard were friends. Mr. Pollard had gotten divorced from his wife, Ms. Betsy Knapp. Anderson asked Pollard to “hook him up” with his ex-wife.

Pollard declined.

Remy: All My Loving (Beatles Parody)

Remy’s back.

Lyrics:

Does adulthood dismay you?
Vote me and I’ll pay you
You won’t have to grow up it’s true
All your bills will be paid
Your adulthood delayed
And I’ll give all this money to you

This Made Us Laugh.

Three surgeons are discussing who makes the best patients to operate on.

The first surgeon said, “Electricians are the best, everything inside is color coded.”

Well, That Didn’t Work Out As Planned.

“Droogie” (not his real name) made a presentation to this years DefCon hacking conference where his funny and mischievous plan didn’t turn out quite like he wanted.

Droogie is a security researcher who decided that in order to prank and cause law enforcement license plate readers issues, he would register for the vanity plate of “NULL.”

“Null” in computer programming is a term for no specific value.

The “plan” was that the DMV’s computers and law enforcement plate scanners would see “null” in the data and think nothing was there.

It didn’t work out quite that way:

This Is Not The Solution You Are Looking For.

Seen on mass transit in London…

No matter what, we don’t think this is a solution to the homeless problem.

(But the sign is funny.)

Whoever Thought That Spreadsheets Could Be Funny?

Gilligan’s Island (Stairway)

The age old question that has been answered is “what happens when you combine the theme from Gilligan’s Island with Led Zeppelin’s ‘Stairway To Heaven.?'”

Now you know.

In 1978, the band Little Roger and the Goosebumps released a 45 RPM record of their song Gilligan’s Island (Stairway), which set the lyrics of the TV sitcom theme song Gilligan’s Island to the music of Stairway to Heaven by the rock band Led Zeppelin.

Led Zeppelin‘s management threatened a copyright infringement lawsuit, and demanded that all copies be destroyed. Little Roger simply withdrew unsold records from the market. Many original records remain in collector’s hands.

But that’s not the end of the story.

In 2000 the song was reissued as Stairway to Gilligan’s Island.

In 2004, Robert Plant, lead singer of Led Zeppelin said in a public interview that the song is his favorite cover of Stairway to Heaven.




Language.

For some reason, this is both funny and accurate.
