Have you seen the new Liberty Mutual Insurance commercial that tells you that you already know what winning an Olympic medal is like? No, I don’t. Frankly, I’d rather the young lady call me Brad and that isn’t my name.
What’s the most clichéd question in the world? I think it’s asking a really old person the secret of their long life. Al Roker asked Tony Bennett that on the Today Show recently, on his 90th birthday. Al (and everyone else), the secret to a long life is don’t die. It really is that simple.
Do empty, light-weight, plastic garbage pails set at the curb cause strong winds? That’s my working hypothesis, anyway.
If English made any sense, wouldn’t great and meat rhyme?
Superstitious is a word. I know that. What about stitious?
You may wonder why I say my wife, Saint Karen, has to be a saint to put up with me. Well, last night, I told her that if I have made her even half as happy as she has made me over the years, she is one lucky woman.
The latest Jaguar commercial starts out, “Being British, it’s not in our nature to boast.” Isn’t that a boast?
How long has it been since you last saw a reel-type lawnmower that doesn’t have a motor? Every power mower at my local Home Depot is a rotary. I bet more than half the people alive today in the United States haven’t even seen a reel-type mower that does have a motor.

The Food Network’s website has a feature called “50 states, 50 pizzas,” in which they say they have discovered the best slice in every state. Is it wrong for me, as a person from New York, to maintain that some states don’t have a best slice? I’ve been to Alabama. I haven’t tried BLT From Trattoria Centrale: Birmingham, Alabama, but it doesn’t sound good to me.
Are UPS trucks even capable of parking legally?
