Missing in Action

I apologize for my absense from the blogosphere for the past two weeks. I had a mental block last week. Over the weekend I became sick and the cold interferred with the creative juices in my brain. I hope to be fully recovered by next week and back to my regularly scheduled program. I have a lot of blogs to catch up on. Hopefully, the upcoming baby won't disrupt my blog ritual.

Weird Laws: Part 17

Weird laws of the United States of America.

Rhode Island

No one may bite off another's leg.  What are zombies to do then?

It is considered an offense to throw pickle juice on a trolley. A little unknown fact: Trolleys are allergic to pickle juice.

Any marriage where either of the parties is an idiot or a lunatic is null and void. So many Reality TV Stars can't get married in Rhode Island.

South Carolina

Every adult male must bring a rifle to church on Sunday in order to ward off Indian attacks. Because every Indian hates church.

It is a capital offense to inadvertently kill someone while attempting suicide. Sorry judge, I was trying to hang myself and I accidentally shot Steve in the face.

A person must be eighteen years old to play a pinball machine. Beating the high score earns you a carton of cigarettes. 

South Dakota

It is illegal to lie down and fall asleep in a cheese factory. The mice will take you away and hold you hostage for a block of cheddar.

No horses are allowed into Fountain Inn unless they are wearing pants. How do you figure out a horse's pants size?

If there are more than 5 Native Americans on your property you man shoot them. This law also applies to Snookis, Biebers, and Kardashians. 


Student may not hold hands while at school. That is how cooties get spread around.

It is a crime to share your Netflix password. How else is grandma going to catch up on Breaking Bad?

Giving and receiving oral sex is still prohibited by law. Hence the nickname, The Hand Job State.

Thoughts of an unborn baby

I was thinking the other day as I felt my unborn baby kick, what do they think about inside the womb?

Unborn Baby Thoughts

  • This place is getting cramped, I need to call my real estate agent.
  • You would think after 8 months I would be able to find the light switch?
  • Whoever is singing "Mmm Bop" out there needs to knock it off.
  • When I finally get out of here, I am going to just cry uncontrollably.
  • I am getting sick of leftovers.
  • Ok, who farted?
  • I kick and I kick and it does nothing. 
  • Should I be concerned with the soft spot on top of my head?
  • How many times is she going to watch Titanic? Jack is not going to live this time.
  • I hope my parents aren't Mexican.

A to Z Reflection

This was my first attempt at conquering the A to Z challenge and I made it through til the end. I didn't think I had it in me. I don't know how I found the time around work, school and preparing for a baby. Someone should be proud of me because I know the wife won't be.

Having a theme and planning each letter ahead of time really saved my ass. I would participate next year but I don't know what my theme would be and I wouldn't want to duplicate what I did this year. I am a little disappointed with the drop in comments towards the end of the challenge. I assume most people are burnt out and are trying to get in their last few posts. I am guilty of that as well. I was organized at the beginning but towards the end I was writing my posts the morning of that letter.

I want to give some shout outs to some awesome bloggers:

Alex Cavanaugh for playing the part of Cookie Monster in my 'C' post. He brought the necessary snark. And for also featuring me in one of his posts. I feel so honored. This must be what being knighted by the Queen feels like.

Jewels for playing the part of Rainbow Brite in my 'R' post. Next time I need some sass I'm calling her back.

Hart Johnson for playing the part of the Hamburglar in my 'H' post. She is the best fast food mascot interpreter out there in the blogosphere.

Thank you to all the new followers and commenters and a big thanks to those of you who have stuck around for a few years, you know who you are.
