There Are Going To Be Days….

There are going to be days when you have to take a goat somewhere.

But what if you need to go and a cart or truck is not available?

There are solutions for that dilemma.

Sometimes you get the goat and sometimes the goat gets you.

How To Screw Up An Image Of A Woman.

Upton-Small-ROHThere is little doubt that model Kate Upton is an attractive woman. The 5’10″ blonde who was raised in Melbourne, Florida has appeared in movies and on the covers of many magazines.

It is therefore understandable that people want to know everything about the woman.

(Actually, it is not understandable to us here are Raised on Hoecakes. We don’t care what she eats, how she works out, who she is dating, and we certainly don’t care how often she “cleanses” her insides.)

Harper’s Bazaar caused a bit of a sensation when it presented an article taken from Elle Magazine entitled “Kate Upton’s Trainer Spills Her Fitness Secrets.”

The sensation is not from the article’s content and how many calories Upton consumes, but rather the accompanying picture:

Somewhere there is a art director wondering why they ever approved an image that appears to be Photoshopped so badly that Upton’s right arm is mangled to the point of where it appears she has palm fronds growing from her arm pit.

Oy vey.

Secret Of The Universe.

We have been absolutely swamped at work for the last few days and no one had a better idea as to what to post than “secret of the universe.”


Who knew it was that deceptively easy?

There’s A Reason Why “Fan” Is Short For “Fanatic.”

This is hysterical.

Yankees fans think they’re booing a cardboard cutout of Robinson Cano – until the real Cano steps out from behind it and surprises them.

Magic Watch!

A company called “Deal Extreme” has this really spiffy touch screen wrist watch they want to sell.

It seems like a great deal to us because not only does the watch tell you the time in either a 12 or 24 hour format, it sticks to your wrist!

It’s amazing! It’s magical!


Please Digital Extreme, put the mouse down, close Photoshop and walk away.

Just walk away.


There is a lesson to be learned here by the kids, but we aren’t sure what that lesson is.

French Girls.

You can find an app for almost anything these days. For example, here is an app called “French Girls:”

French Girls is the legendary award-winning* app where strangers anonymously draw portraits based on “selfies” of others. Take photos, draw portraits, and enjoy the photos and portraits that strangers have deemed appropriate to share with the digital world, all from the convenience of your iPhone.

On the homepage, the app has a nifty illustration. We can’t put our finger on it, but there seems to be something out of kilter with it.


A Lincoln Story.

Abraham-Lincoln-charcolIn her book “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln,” Doris Kearns Goodwin gives another one of Abraham Lincoln’s favorite stories. We can see why he liked it. One hundred and 60 plus years later, it still gets a good laugh.

Another story, relayed years later by John Usher, centered on a man “who had a great veneration for Revolutionary relics.” Learning that an old woman still possessed a dress that “she had worn in the Revolutionary War,” he traveled to her house and asked to see it. She took the dress from a bureaus and handed it to him. He was so excited that he brought the dress to his lips and kissed it. “The practical old lady rather resented such foolishness over an old piece of wearing apparel and she said: ‘Stranger if you want to kiss something old you had better kiss my ass. It is sixteen years older than that dress.’”
