Quote of the Day “My baby makes me proud. Lord, don’t she make me proud.” “My baby makes me smile. Lord,don’t she make me smile.” — Charlie Rich, from Behind Closed Doors, Smily’s song of the Week, as voted by you, quoted completely out of context so I can dedicate it to Greeg and Chrissy
Ok, the “Third Week” post wasn’t my funniest ever, but its a true observation nonetheless. It was a TB equivalent of a Saturday Night Live skit that airs in the last ten minutes. The thing is, if you keep repeating some of those bad skits, they eventually become funny. A prime example is the Aaron Neville “cocoa butter” bit. So I’ll try to work it in where I can. The Lieberman post was damn funny though–worthy of Jon Stewart’s show and Letterman’s.
Be that as it may, this week’s pick’em winner was Greeg who took the tiebreaker by winning Theme of the Week. Song of the Week to Smily, quoted above and List to Sweet.

Larry: It is “It ain’t me, it ain’t me, I ain’t the fortunate one, no. It ain’t me, it ain’t me, I ain’t no senator’s son, no.”
Look it up,dude, do not try and correct leader of BBRP, it tends to backfire on you.
Larry: I stand corrected, it is Fortunate Son, i am man enough to admit when I’m wrong(lots of practice,I guess) Oh well, song still rocks!!
Daddy always said people respect you more when you stand up and admit you are wrong – especially before anyone else can accuse you. Zeek – you do get some points for that – not sure how many Larry will award you though!

The New Orleans Metallica concert is this Sunday night, so y’all won’t be forced to endure for much longer my public shaming of Brad, Fig, et.al., at least on the TB site.
larry has no power to award or take points. That is TB’s gig. As a loyal member of the BBRP, I was just just being a smart a$$. The BBRP should expect nothing less.

My liver is intact after last weekend so last night i decided to start in on it again with apple flavored vodka and jagarbombs, hence the late post. Mind you we never made it out of my kitchen.
On another note I have found a juke joint up the street towards the ghetto that has a house blues band on Saturday night and rumor has it White people are allowed. So I am planning on venturing out to there tonight if I make it off the couch after Your Ole Miss Rebels Whomp LSU with my bottle of makers mark.
Today I like
