  • Gosh Bless America
    OMG, I love this country

    It was only 236 years ago this month that John Hancock tweeted, “Check out my me-moment on the D of I. T.J.’s signature was only half as big, and he authored it! Doesn’t matter, this thing won’t last. LOL.”

  • Uncorked
    Message in a bottle, a revelation

    There was a time when tossing bottles into the water was more socially acceptable. I submit to you a true “message in a bottle” story that even Jonathon Sparks couldn’t make up (mostly because it doesn’t involve quite enough death and despair—some, but not to his standard).

  • Hawaiian Shirt
    No man is an island but I kinda created one

    I grabbed my fanny pack, camera and souvenirs, retrieved my shirt out of the hamper and made my way out of there, Michael Corleone-style—you know, after you shoot the guy, walk out fast, but not too fast. Don’t look anybody directly in the eye, but don’t look away, either.

  • Lust See Attractions
    An insider's peep at the mating habits of celebrities and athletes

    In keeping with its long-standing tradition of presenting half-time acts that are at least 25 years past their prime, the NFL is foisting the legendary diva Madonna upon us for the big game’s intermission on February 5.

  • Occupied San Diego
    I'm ready to start my own movement

    “The difference between me screaming at someone locked inside a portable toilet and the protesters chanting on Wall Street is that the object of my scorn can actually hear me.”

  • Fruits of Your Labor

    If you’re up for a holiday bonus this year, you’re probably one of the lucky one percent the “occupy” vagrants hate, so consider yourself blessed. Keep that company gift in play with these simple tips.

  • Grateful Dead
    The ultimate Thanksgiving: my acceptance speech in heaven

    Thank you so, so much. This is such a surprise. By the way, where the hell am I? Just kidding, just kidding. Forgive me for not preparing anything—frankly, I was too busy jamming that asbestos jumpsuit into my carry-on in case I landed in that other place, if you know what I mean.

  • For the Birds
    Damn bald eagles—they make Thanksgiving so fowl

    Had Benjamin Franklin gotten his way, the turkey would be our national bird, and Michael Vick would be getting concussions with the Philadelphia Turkeys of the NFC East.

    Sport-hate, not to be confused with genuine hate

    Ever been watching a game on TV when a particular athlete comes on and you find yourself saying “I hate that guy”? I contend you don’t genuinely hate that guy. But you definitely “sport-hate” him.

    No reason to take a gamble on the Chargers—I’ve already seen the games
