V8 is secretly trying to kill you!

I've stumbled across a startling plot by V8 that seems to indicate that they're trying to kill us all.

V8 says:

"A healthy diet rich in a variety of vegetables and fruit may help reduce the risk of some types of cancer."

If you look at 2 cans of V8 (from the same case of 24 that I bought because I'm too lazy to chew my vegetables) they look like this:

Look at the can on the left, and then look at the can on the right. One says 2 servings, the other says 3. Well V8, which is it?? The small print on the can on the left says that there are 2 servings in 250 mL of V8. That means there is 125 mL in one serving, and (with a little math) 375 mL in 3 servings. AND, (this is where the conspiracy comes in) there ARE ONLY 340 mL IN A CAN. Yes, you heard right. I'm drinking my V8 thinking that I'm getting 3 servings because I want to maybe reduce the risk of some kind of cancer, and I'm only getting 2.7 servings! I've pieced this all together into a little flow chart summarizing my findings and it basically boils down to the fact that V8 is misleading us into thinking we're safe from cancer all the while they're buying shares in some pharmaceutical company that specializes in cancer medication. It's all true, except for that last part, I made that up.

Pyramid Blogging!!

Well, I was thinking that I wouldn't ever lower myself to propagating a pyramid type blogging thing on this blog. THEN I thought, "My blog kind of sucks anyways, so why not?" So, without further ado, I'll answer Scott's questions.

1) If you could know the time, place and details of your death, but you could not prevent it, would you want to know?

I think the 'correct' answer to that would be, "No, I'd rather live every day as if it were my last day blah, blah, blah..." My answer is "Of course, as otherwise I'd have to live every day thinking I might die tomorrow and I wouldn't know on which day to waste all my money on hookers and blow. PLUS, I'd love to know the exact day, as then if someone asked me to do them a favour I'd say, "Sure, I'll do it next Tuesday, unless of course I die a horrible death in the meantime, but what are the odds of that? (then I'd give them a little wink and they'd be all like, WTF?)"

2) If you could pick any profession and money was never going to be an issue, what would you want to do?

I'd want to play a game of some sort I imagine. Something that's fun and not at all like work, and allows for a lot of time to sit around in a warm climate on my ass doing nothing. Or managing high priced call girls, that'd be cool too.

3) What 5 albums would you bring to a deserted island?

1. Oasis - Be Here Now
2. Howie Day - Australia
3. Hilary Duff - Hilary Duff
4. Hilary Duff - Hilary Duff
5. Hilary Duff - Hilary Duff

I chose Hilary Duff 3 time because she seems to be everywhere these days, and just in case there were some head-hunters or something on this island I'd probably want something to barter with. I picked the same album because if you're ever bargaining for your life with head-hunters, I imagine you don't want them to think you're playing favourites with a rival tribe.

4) What physical attribute would you change about yourself and why?

I'd change the way I look. Do you know how tiring it gets when people constantly approach you and say, "Justin, whatever happened to you and Britney? She's gone so white trash since you two broke-up."

5) If given the choice, would you rather drive to a train station to pick someone up, or would you prefer to give birth to a flaming porcupine in the middle of an igloo during a painful bowel movement?

Ummm, that depends on where the train station is and how appropriate I feel the request to be picked up is. I imagine that I would drive to the train station if the alternative would be that thing you wrote, but it would probably depend on the circumstances and how I felt at the time.

Now, I'll offer to interview the next 3 people who want to interviewed, I suppose.

1. Leave me a comment saying 'interview me', if you'd like to be interviewed.
2. I will respond by asking you five questions here. They will be different questions than the ones above. What you do with those 5 questions is up to you.

See?? I told you those numbers were losers. I was sure that the lottery gods would spite me for being so sure that those numbers would lose that they'd make them win. I bought a ticket with those numbers. What a waste. Damn lottery gods are probably waiting a few weeks.

Don't say I never did anything for you...

The Lotto Super 7 jackpot is up to 17.5 million dollars! Now, I was going to give you the numbers you should play, but that's really too hard, so instead, I figured I'd give you some numbers that you SHOULDN'T play. That's right, these numbers are losers, stay away from them.

1 3 15 24 25 36 43

Trust me on this one, don't play these numbers.

I was wondering...

I was wondering if my blog would be better or worse if I wrote about my kids. First off, it'd be a lot harder to write, because I'd have to make up a bunch of stories about kids (because I don't have any).

Paul's Book Club (Not to be confused with Oprah's)

Don't read a book today!
This is a little different than Oprah's club. I haven't read this book, nor do I plan on ever reading it. Join my club, don't read this book!

Well, I've finally gotten around to not reading the third book of my club. It took me longer than I expected to not read that last one, so I hope you're all caught up.

Book #3 is "A Farewell to Arms" by Ernest Hemingway. Or as I'd prefer to call it, "A Farewell to Consciousness". Having trouble sleeping?? Pick up a book by Hemingway.

The first indication that this book is a good one not to read is this:


How shitty does it have to be for the LIBRARY to not want it??

Leave it to Ernest Hemingway to make a book about war unreadable. Or I should say, I imagine it would be unreadable as I haven't actually read it. How many. Short sentences. Can someone read. Before they want. To kill someone?

One good thing about this book is that it gives you a list of other books not to read on the back.

(I know it's hard to's late, and I'm not going to try to make it better.)

I read "The Sun Also Rises" and it basically sucked. I'm not going to make that mistake again. Join my club, don't read this book.

Join Millions Around the Globe!! This is Jack Van Impe Presents!! (aired March 26)

In case you didn't know, Dr. Jack Van Impe (pronounced "Impey") and his wife Rexella have a weekly tv show where they discuss important relevant global issues and then tell you where in the bible it says that it's a sign that Jesus is coming. And that you're going to hell.

1:00 – Yay! It’s the Easter show! More NFL players wear their Christianity on the field! I’m sure more baseball players will too now, as they’ll have to rely on something when they’re not juiced up. Think of how many home runs Barry Bonds could have hit had he taken a daily dose of Jesus, instead of Testosterone Cypionate. I'm guessing about 15, because as good as Jesus might be for your soul, I don't think he makes your arms any bigger.

7:00 – Rexella talks about a letter they received from the founder of Walmart. Rexella says his name is Sam Walmart (I have a feeling it’s not). Apparently Jack and Rexella prayed for him to recover from his illness a few weeks ago. Anyways, he’s dead now. Plus, his name was actually Sam Walton, if you cared.

17:06 – Jack says that it wasn’t enough for Jesus to just have died, he had to die a certain way. If he died of suffocation, strangulation or a heart attack you could not have been saved because without the shedding of blood there’s no remission of sins!! Wait a minute, what if after he had a heart attack he fell and hit his head on the coffee table?

For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.
One day on his way to the grocery store, he had a heart attack, fell and hit his head on a coffee table;
he suffered death and was buried, much like everyone else who isn't crucified.
On the third day he rose again
but nobody really paid too much attention because hitting your head on a coffee table really isn't all that glamourous.


23:00 – Rexella is singing a song - Man, it’s long. She just keeps singing and singing. Jack is so moved he’s crying! It looks fake, but he has the hanky and everything.

23:45 – Jack’s prayer – he’s crying again. It’s fake though, you know, like when you kind of want to cry, but really can’t, but wish you could? Like when you’re breaking up with someone who you don’t really like all that much, and you figure that if she thinks you’re upset it’ll go smoother? Yeah, it’s just like that.

25:00 – THE OFFER OF THE WEEK! It’s called “Beyond the Grave”. It talks about what will happen to you “beyond the grave”. He even covers what happens to those people who have never heard the gospels! I imagine that they all go to hell as I doubt Jesus would want a bunch of people walking up to him in heaven saying, “Nice crown, and what happened to your hands? Who'd you piss off?”

A Positive Attitude Will Get You As Far As You Want It To

Image hosted by Ha! Take THAT, spider solitaire! Not so tough now, are you??

Anyways, I'd like to be serious for a minute here. I know, usually this site is all about the funny, but today I'd like to switch it up a bit and share a little story about a little something called perseverance. You see, I was once like you, I'd look at spider solitaire on difficult and I'd say, "It can't be done, it's just impossible." You see, that's where you and I are very different. I don't see barriers, I see challenges, and I don't say, "It can't be done", I say, "I look forward to overcoming this substantial barrier." As a great man once said, "Some people say, 'I'll believe it when I see it', but I say, 'I'll see it when I believe it." Wow, that's powerful stuff. (although, it's easy to be all motivated and positive when you get paid a ton of money to sit in a forest and take pictures of sunsets.) You see, I saw myself defeating Spider Solitaire, I was confident, and I succeeded. Sure, there were days when I considered giving up, there were days when I just didn't feel like playing, but I sat there on my ass for hours and I played anyways looking forward to the thrill and the challenge that the next game would bring. Each game I lost I learned a little bit more, and eventually I focussed all that I'd learned and I accomplished my goal. (pause for applause)

In case you cared, I've developed a little something I call the "SpiderCam" where you can actually see the board through my eyes. Try it here. Anyways, I'm considering a little side project where I do little motivational speeches, so if you're interested, just let me know. Until then, have a beautiful day, because I know I will.

(Note: the italicized words are the buzz words that you're supposed to take away with you and apply to your everyday life - and especially work, as this stuff is gold and will surely get you promotions if you apply it correctly. You can thank me later.)

You know you've hit it big when...

...they talk about your milk bags on!!

This was a discussion involving milk bags, including a link to my milk bag instructions but it appears that it's gone.

Anyways, those of you who know me, know that I'm not one to make fun of people. It doesn't matter how dumb, or how ugly someone is, how annoying, or how bad they smell, they're all equal in my book. "Judge not, lest ye be judged" is a quote from one of my favourite books, (it was that Hardy Boys one about the Chinese Junk I think, I think Frank said it, maybe it was the other brother, whatever).

Having said all that, the award for "most likely to end up doing cheap porn" goes to

Why I shouldn't go to Walmart

Change that to "Why I shouldn't go to Walmart alone"

Have you ever read The Weekly World News? Man, it's funny. Look at that cover! It turns out the talking cat, or "SpyCat" also writes poetry. I wish my cat talked. Actually, I'm glad my cat doesn't talk. "Hey Paul, feed me", "Hey Paul, clean the litter box once in a while", "Hey Paul..." Christ cat, shut the hell up.

I like this article too. It's about a psychic chicken. If I had a psychic chicken, I certainly wouldn't keep it someplace where a fox could get it, I'd keep it in a special chicken holder, that rotates slowly over an open flame.

Just to 'even it out' I thought I should buy some more intellectual reading material, so I picked up a National Geographic. It has some articles on tsunamis and killer whales. Killer whales are damn cool animals. It explains how they're really nature's biggest jerks (next to us, of course), and they hunt and kill lots of stuff including sharks. I'm slowly coming to the realisation that I'd be against placing them in captivity if they weren't so good at doing those cool tricks. I think it's only a matter of time before some poor whale trainer gets a taste of what poor Roy got. How is Roy doing anyways? I haven't heard anything in a long time. Did he kick it?

Anyways, on to the deodorant aisle. Hmmm, what's this? Tsunami GEL? I had to buy this. It's kind of funny that they call it "AXE DRY - Tsunami GEL"

Thanks to AXE, my pits are as dry as a TSUNAMI!

Almost $20 later I made it to what I'd gone to buy in the first place - this lint roller. Whoever thought of this is a genius. The lint just comes right off!

In closing, thanks to the endless variety of crap you can buy at Walmart, and my inability to resist purchasing crap that seems remotely interesting (or that mentions 'tsunami'), I'm going to go read some made up stories about talking cats, look at some pictures of naked aboriginals and try to find things that need delinting. I don't know what you're doing tonight, but I'm busy.
