Waiting Rooms.

One of the staff here at Raised on Hoecakes has spent a lot of time in waiting rooms over the past few weeks.

They swear this cartoon is right on the money.

We wouldn’t know as we always carry a spare power cell and charger.

Zombie Flamingos?

If you are a redneck, live around rednecks or even live in Florida, you have seen yards with pink flamingos. In some ways the plastic birds on metal legs has become a bit of a stereotype but the best thing about stereotypes is that someone always breaks the mold.

Anyone for zombie flamingos?



The Death Star Architect Speaks Out.

‘Bout time we heard from this guy…..

The Male Siri: A Creepy Stage Five Clinger (iPhone 7 Commercial Parody).

Last week Apple announced it will host the next iPhone launch on September 9, 2015.

This year’s iPhone launch is the “S” cycle, which means the devices likely won’t feature new hardware designs but instead could include other tweaks — for example, Siri, Apple’s voice assistant, debuted with the iPhone 4S. The company is expected to add its ForceTouch technology to the new devices, allowing the iPhones to differentiate between hard and light taps on the display. Other tweaks could include a faster processor and camera, as well as more color options.

One of the new features will probably not be the male voiced replacement for Siri, but you never know.

(Somewhat NSFW-ish).

Sweat It To Get It.

Gatorade is partnering with different athletic governing bodies such as the NFL to promote “Sweat It To Get It.”

The intent of the campaign is to get people working out and moving, rather than sitting around. According to the tongue and cheek campaign, if you aren’t sweating, you can’t have a bottle of Gatorade.

Watch Houston Texan and NFL star JJ Watt (who is listed at 6′ 5″ and 289 pounds) bring the point home below.

(Watt’s last comment is an instant classic.)

You can find more of the commercials here in the Gatorade YouTube channel, including commercials with the hysterically stoic Manning brothers (Eli and Peyton)

It’s a strange campaign, but it is funny.

If Call Center Employees Were Honest.

Now you know what those call center people really are thinking.

Yes, I know how long you’ve been holding and I don’t care.

Donald And Walter.

This has been floating around in our minds here at Raised on Hoecakes.

Donald Trump and Jeff Dunham’s friend Walter.

Satellite Beach And Young Coders.

The City of satellite Beach, having determined that nature will bow to their will when it comes to trees, will hold a CRA meeting tonight at 6:00 PM followed by a meeting of the City Council at 7:00. The agenda for the meeting can be found here and the support packet can be found here.

The Council has had a habit of blocking out what is important to the people of Satellite Beach and taking the approach of “we need to tax and spend so let’s find more ways to do that.”

We were reminded of that when we saw this cartoon which pushing aside what really matters:

Hope to see you at the meeting(s).
