Mondays are Pointless


Just stating the obvious here. We have a 9:30ish meeting which somehow seemed to not start until 10ish and then had a meeting at 11...and now it's lunch. What is the point? At least our windows have been cleaned today. Shiny shiny.

Also, is it a sign of mental defect or naivete that I don't understand the hullabaloo around Bernie Mac's joke at at Obama rally. I just don't understand it. I'm guessing I haven't actually heard the actual joke. Please explain if you understand.

That's all...I started working on my rides for Word World's proving difficult.


  1. Here's the "joke":
    "My little nephew came to me and he said, 'Uncle, what's the difference between a hypothetical question and a realistic question?'" Mac told the crowd, "I said, ‘I don't know,’ but I said, 'I'll tell you what you do. Go upstairs and ask your mother if she'd make love to the mailman for $50,000.’”
    The joke continued with the mother saying she'd sleep "with anyone" for $50,000 -- and then continuing to include Mac's daughter hypothetically answering the question in the same way.
    "Hypothetically speaking, we should have $100,000. But realistically speaking we live with two hos,” Mac said delivering the punch line that solicited a few hecklers in the political crowd.
    It's un-PC, but I work in an industry where this would be considered mild banter appropriate for the tender ears of the 20-year-old interns.

  2. Thanks for clarifying that, Wende. I am still not 100% sure I understand the big deal, but then again, it's probably because I've heard a LOT worse!


Since you have great taste in blogs, I don't think I have to tell you to be nice to each other...and don't spam me. Thanks!
