Hot Flashes  

Horrible Neighbors #2

On: Sunday, January 30, 2011

Three more from the archives:
During a bad snowstorm, I moved my *new* car from the street to the grass next to my driveway - a distance of about 20 feet.   Three police cars rolled up, while I was covering the car with a car cover, a rapid response worthy of an armed robbery. They said the Foul-Mouthed Religious Hypocrite Lady (FMRHL) called and said someone was driving my car "wildly" around the property.
Another day, Scary Old Man With Guns (SOMWG) called the police because the registration expired on my car, which was parked in front of my house. When I asked why he did that, SOMWG said I should "take care of that shit."
FMRHL called me, saying a Fedex package delivered to her house was missing. She lamented that one of my sons must have stolen it "as a joke." My answer that one son was at the Jersey Shore, and the other was in Philadelphia, at school, was not convincing. The police visited, suspicious that my explanation was "too handy."
FMRHL felt the missing item, a personal trampoline, was a "hot item", I think she meant popular. Somehow, I suppose, one of my sons divined the contents of the package and spirited it away between 11AM and 12 noon. "Boys will be boys", she surmised.

Steven Wright, Part II

"Do you think when they asked George Washington for his ID, he'd just pull out a quarter?"
"I went to the bank and asked to borrow a cup of money. They said, "What for?" I said, "I'm going to buy some sugar."
"My theory of evolution, is that Darwin was adopted."
"24-hour banking? I haven't got time for that."
"I went to a store that had a sign that said 'Open 24 Hours' and it was closed. I asked the manager 'Why are you closing? It says you're open 24 hours.' He said 'Not in a row.'"
"So I'm driving along, being real careful 'cos its an old car and I installed my own airbags, I got an old bean bag chair, some laughing gas and a compressor, so if I hit the accident just right I'll be floating up in the air laughing hysterically"
"So I said to the hitchhiker 'what do you do?' He said 'I'm a student'. I said 'a student of what?' He said he was studying journalism and photography, so I said 'that's funny, I'm actually writing a short story about a photographer who went completely insane trying to take a close up photo of the horizon.'"
"You know when someone reads a letter in the movies and you always hear what's written in the voice of the person who wrote the letter? Yeah, that kills me. In fact I get the same thing with menus."
"I was driving along when I saw a hitchhiker holding a sign that said "heaven", so I hit him. He probably went there. He seemed like a nice guy.
"I'd like to do my imitation of bowling. (Drags the microphone across the stage floor, then whips it upwards.) Gutter. It took me a year and a half to write that. I didn't know how to word it.
"This next song doesn't go 'something' like this; it goes 'exactly' like this."

Uh Oh, I Pissed Somebody Off

I was invited last year to be a member of a private forum. Their posts are comedy oriented and available through torrents rather than by file-sharing sites like r-a-p-i-d-s-h-a-r-e.

I am pretty savvy with PC stuff but not with how torrents work. Bottom line, I got booted from the forum because, I *think*, I couldn't retool my torrents or my hash-ID, (something like that.) I guess there's always the chance I pissed-off someone in some other way. Mea Culpa!

Why write about it?

Some of the offended forum's moderators and members are members of this private blog. I would like you to know that you are still welcome here on VSC. You're pissed off at me? OK, my skin is thick (I am seeing a doctor for that.)

No, I'm not begging to be a member again. No, I am not disabling your logon IDs. Yes, you can still come here for COMEDY albums. Come on, fellows, we are purveyors of laughs. I hate to think that someone is so MAD about something I did when our blogs are about COMEDY. So, make a joke about me, insult me, post Photoshopped pictures of me. But no need to get your blood pressure up. I still love 'ya!

Horrible Neighbors #1

On: Monday, January 24, 2011

I am “blessed” with two unusual neighbors, one a foul-mouthed religious hypocrite lady (FMRHL) and the other a scary old man with guns (SOMWG) who keeps his handguns on the kitchen table and next to his sofa.

Over the last 5 years these neighbors have called the police to our house, in a middle upper class neighborhood, many times. Here's one example why.

We usually put the trash out when the kids go to school. But I learned the hard way that the law says to put trash out no sooner than 3PM on the day before pickup. And return them before 5PM after they've been emptied.

Shortly after the township published their yearly newsletter, mentioning that law, SOMWG called the police. I got a personal visit from the police, followed by a visit from the township manager who took pictures of the offending cans and sent a warning letter. He personally warned me that he would drive by my house every day on his way to work to check the status of the cans.

The upshot: this time I was prepared. A few weeks later detectives (who made a follow-up visit!) visited and I provided time-stamped photos of a half dozen houses in our neighborhood, including FMHRL's, with trash by the curb (OMG!) before 3:00 PM. And a photo of SOGWG putting his trash in the neighbors' trash cans. Ironically it is against the law to do that, since our local laws require that every house have a trash and recycle service!

Funny? Pathetic? Hypocritical? Yes. This incident was downright silly. But a few others were extremely dangerous. Watch this space for more stories.

2011 - What's Ahead For VSC

On: Saturday, January 22, 2011

Hi everyone, hope you enjoyed - and recovered from - the holidays. Thought I'd post some predictions for 2011:

  • Right now I have enough stand-up albums to create new posts for three months.
  • It is very likely that I will find new material, and several of our readers have been sending new material on a semi-regular basis. 
  • If I don't find new material to post, I have about 100 albums with missing tracks set aside from which to draw.
  • I will be moving old, and posting new novelty albums in some different way, either on their own page or another blog. Novelty albums will be posted as I found them. That may mean they don't have art work or track lists.
  • I have HORRIBLE neighbors and plan serial posts describing their antics. Feel free to comment, or otherwise chime in, and describe your own Fresh Hell.
  • Do you miss Jossy and Oleysa? Me too! I'm hoping a fresh scam will drop into my email for some new fun. But hey, we need something original!
  • And finally, I predict we will see MORE COMMENTS from our blog visitors. Please?
In closing, I'd like to thank the folks who've been sending albums to post on VSC. And I'm offering my apologies for not posting the few albums sent to me for comedians outside of the "Vintage" timeframe.
