   This has been mentioned before but they're playing Christmas commercials on TV already, three weeks before Thanksgiving.  That's surely enough to piss off the pope.  If I was made emperor, king, dictator, or whatever my very first law would be absolutely no freakin' Christmas commercials until after Thanksgiving under penalty of death by slow torture!!!! Ho ho freakin' ho!

As a European, I'm now ok with Christmas stuff appearing. Before Halloween though? Definitely death penalty. I mean, really Halloween 24/7 365 days a year, but between the END of Halloween and Christmas day? Acceptable.

† † Fake laughter and canned laughter.† Sports shows are some of the worst offenders when it comes to fake laughter.† Some has been ex jock says something not the least bit funny and it's a big yuck fest.† "Good one, big guy! Yuck, yuck, yuck!"†
† † Even when I was a child I found canned laughter strange and annoying.† It's like "You're to stupid to know when to laugh at these inane lines so we'll push a button telling you when this crap is funny."† Though I've been exposed to it my entire life I still find the whole concept of canned laughter totally odd.†

Social media tough guys. Thy are decked out in camo and rant and rave about killing terrorists, but aren't willing to join the military.
Same thing with people who cover their trucks with bumper stickers about the same subject. If you want to be part of the solution, join up.

still phoebe - she rolled in it a couple days later as well Sad

And amazon boxes. Do they deliberately find the least appropriate sized of packaging for the small items ?

Had a small led light strip delivered yesterday, the box was large enough to serve as the coffin for a small child.

† † I agree totally, sb.† There is nothing more pathetic and cowardly than a Facebook tough guy.† Everyone is tough through a keyboard and monitor.
† † Personally I would never put anything political on any of my vehicles.† By doing so one makes his/her vehicle a target.† Especially now, with America so completely polarized over the putrid orange slug.† I'm not afraid to speak† my mind but I don't openly invite trouble.

Proper pet peeve.
Phoebe rolled in fox crap wednesday - I was peeved whistle


Around here there is always deer crap.  All of my dogs have loved it. Not only do they roll in it but some of them have (God forbid) eaten it.  Crap from ungulates in general seems to hold a special fascination for dogs.  Nasty.

Hares abound around our area and my girlfriend's family dogs stay with us now and then and love it. Los of little round sweets for them. They don't just enjoy hare poo though. Goose, dog, even human if they're "lucky" enough to find it. Later, after the walk, they'll get all confused when I push them off when they try and lick my face...
