This episode of brain fog is getting very bad. Take your meds with some wine and try again.
Sheesh! NOT AGAIN. Oh, I see my mistake. Thanks.
Let me try this again.
A little bird told me that someone named Diesel, from Mattress Police, and the grunt behind Humor-Blogs.com, has a birthday today and this old dude is turning 49.
Ha! He's older than me. I love it!
Anyhowser, what goes with a name like Diesel? My first thought was of a thirsty 18-wheeler and then I started thinking about corn and beans and other sources of fuel. Then I farted.
Sorry. It must have been the beans. Hubby and the cat are giving me a funny look. What? What? Did I grow an extra head?
Because of this guy's birthday, this week's cooking experiment will be a little early or Tuesday's post is a little late. Pick one and let's move on.
I dusted off my Paparazzi camera and put on my best stalker's cap and went searching for the dirt on Diesel.
It seems he has struggled all his life. He just never quite fit in:
He was "colored" in a world of white. Oh,my. Say it ain't so.
By the way, is anyone surprised that Diesel is a black penguin?
After a less-than-angelic childhood and a few prison terms, it appears Diesel went into hiding. It was difficult to find out any real blackmail material (pun intended) so I sent in the big guns:
Yeah. I know that is a silent black (yep, pun intended) helicopter but it's the best I could do in this economy. Even the Paparazzi are short on funds.
I did learn that you don't want to piss off this guy. He fed his brother Liesel to the
Yummy...for the whale.
Well, that's it. This Diesel guy is all cooked up and ready to serve. Pass the salt and hand me that bowl of beans.
Seriously, I love reading Diesel's blog Mattress Police with that subtle and sometimes not-so-subtle humor flavored with ass-kicking sarcasm. Great stuff! I noticed one of his tags recently: "Full of himself". That's funny but it's not true. He's a good guy. Now go sign-up for Humor-blogs.com if you have not already!
Happy Birthday, Diesel!
Actually, this looks kind of like Benjamin Linus as a baby....
