*In a case of whose dog is it, a woman and a man are fighting over ownership of a cute little poodle. In a recent episode of ‘Judge Judy,’ TV magistrate Judith Sheindlin put her no nonsense approach to the test…again.
A video recap shows a woman who says she legally purchased the dog, and a male opposing litigant who says the dog is his. In an attempt to get to the bottom of this quickly, Judy tells a woman in the court to bring the little dog in.
She does so, amidst the oohs and aahs from people seated in the courtroom.
*I Love Lucy was one of the funniest TV shows ever. The black-and-white series originally ran from October 15, 1951 to May 6, 1957 on CBS and it was the first scripted television show shot on 35mm film before a live studio audience. The show garnered five Emmys.
According to FilmMakerIQ.com each show included 300 viewers from the first shoot until the last, and there were many “one take” scenes.
Later, Desi Arnaz, the real life husband of Lucille Ball, revealed the comedic actress works better when real people are watching her performance.
Everyone watched I Love Lucy — no matter what race or culture — we loved the shenanigans of that crazy redhead and the frustrations and gentle reprimands of her handsome, Latin musician-husband, Ricky Ricardo.
But did you know that ‘Ricky Ricardo’ was not the original name the network came up with for Lucy’s hubby?
Uh-uh. They had something else in mind.
Do you think we would’ve felt the same about this Latin lover if his character was named Larry Lopez?
Let me get that for you…
Here’s some more never heard before FUN FACTS about ‘I Love Lucy’ and its incredible cast!Continue reading →
*Imagine you’re dead. OK wait, I started that wrong, imagine you’re driving along, and you’ve swerved the hell out of the van in front of you, trying to get by. The guy driving obviously has some kind of attitude because how could he NOT see you trying to get by? Meanwhile, both lanes to your right and left are bumper to bumper traffic.
What to do? What to do? Now you’re in hater-mode!
But wait! Instant karma has struck that dumb piece of sh*t in front of you because his back door has flung open. Hahahaha!
Uh oh… What’s that?
Is that a dead BODY!???
You’re darn skippy it is. And that big white van belongs to the coroner’s office.
*Some people think they can just get away with anything, unscathed. Hey, everybody knows I just love animals. But with this story I realize even I have a limit. An Ohio woman called 911 (scroll down to listen) and told them to “Hurry!” because she had a “Boa constrictor stuck to my face!”
No sh*t. That’s what she said.
Now before we go any further I will admit: I was young and stupid once. I actually let someone place a boa constrictor (a friend’s pet) around my neck. His name was “Dylan” — you may have heard this story before, because its not the first time I’ve told it.
Matter of fact, I even baby-sat, er, snake-sat the 8-ft reptile while my friend ran errands. She kept him in one of those big glass cases you see in jewelry shops. Dylan was cool. Accustomed to being around people — this girl was an artist. And he was fast. I had always thought huge snakes were too heavy to be fast, but I was wrong!
Dylan would glide around the perimeter of a room like nobody’s business. OMG and he was sneaky. He’d hide in drawers and shit, I’m told.
Years later, I guess Dylan outgrew being anybody’s pet and ended up biting my friend on the arm.
Like I said: I was young and stupid once. Wouldn’t do that today.
But what’s this old dame’s excuse?
Even the 911 operator had to repeat the statement: “You have a boa constrictor on your face?” in that usual deadpan “what’s YOUR story” voice.
*Hell hath no fury like a lover scorned, right? And from the creativity put into some of these revenge tactics, saving face is becoming much harder to maintain. Here’s a handful of tactics girlfriends and boyfriends employed after they learned the other was cheating. I mean some of these things took some real time, and money, and a lot of thought to pull off.
Let’s call this one: Steven, you really effed up, dude!
Why have the traditional “Garage Sale” when you can personalize it by having an “Ex-Husband Sale?” Continue reading →
*Anyone who has taken the time to recognize, knows how smart dogs are. I marvel at what they actually understand when a human talks to them. According to statistics, dogs have the ability to understand at least 165 words — generally simple commands like sit, walk, ball. I know our dogs go nuts the moment we say the word “walk.” So much so that we now have chosen to spell it out instead: W-a-l-k. This way, we figure, our girl dog (who we often have to remind that contrary to her belief, she IS still a dog) will be less stressed from hearing the word that is not always followed by the action. Just because we say the word does not mean you are going on one.
We were safe for awhile. But now I swear she has learned how to spell too.
I recently became aware of a story that reiterates this domestic animal’s ability to learn. Eclipse, a dog that is a cross between a black Labrador and a Mastiff, takes the bus every single day to the park so she can run and play.
No joke. No lie. We’ve got the video.
She’s a big deal in Seattle, and is often a talking point for many of its radio stations. But each day on the bus she undoubtedly runs into a good Samaritan who doesn’t know her story; thinks she is lost and attempts to help — until the bus driver lets them know, “she’s fine. She knows what she’s doing.” Continue reading →
*OMG. I dare you to say you’ve never LOL at some of the things your kid may have said in absolute innocence. I came across the funniest examples of some of their test answers recently. I can only imagine the teacher correcting the papers. They may have got the answers wrong, but they sure did provide that teacher (and now us!) with one good laughs.
