Click the pic. Make life less painful for yourself.

OK, our sponsor is not TurboTax. But honestly, how did we survive without it? Not well, huh?

And why do we need any type of tax preparation assistance? Oh... another topic for another day.

But for now, it is what it is. Thank goodness there is TurboTax!

This Week with the Chicowitz

You Gonna' Eat That?

Every comedian under the age of 40 has commented about the courage of the first guy to drink milk. “Yeah, I’m gonna go up that 500-pound animal, put my hands under there, and squeeze those things. Then, when white stuff comes out, I’m gonna drink it.”

Well, I feel the same way about crabs. You’re walking down the beach near the shore, and you see an ugly crusty-looking thing crawling across the sand: “Oh yeah; I’ll chase down that sucker, yank off its legs, roast them on a fire for a while... then eat them.”

I Remember... March 21, 1980:

I remember March 21, 1980... it was the television "shot heard 'round the world." The producers had been building up to it for weeks. On March 21, it happened:



Somebody shot JR! And the world went nuts for the next 8 months trying to figure out who did it.

Let me tell you a story. Picture it; Sicily; 1922.
What is the name of the sitcom?

The BBHQ Joke of the Week

This one is so socially and politically incorrect, it may burn up your in-box.

We love it anyway.

This is a story of self-control and marksmanship by a brave, cool-headed woman with a small pistol against a fierce predator. (What is the smallest caliber that you would trust to protect yourself?)

Here is her story:

While out walking along the edge of a bayou just below Houma, Louisiana with my soon to be ex-husband discussing property settlement and other divorce issues, we were surprised by a huge 12-ft. alligator suddenly emerging from the murky water and charging us with its large jaws wide open. She must have been protecting her nest because she was extremely aggressive.

If I had not had my little Beretta Jetfire .25 caliber pistol with me, I would not be here today!

Just one shot to my estranged husband's knee cap was all it took. The gator got him easily and I was able to escape by just walking away at a brisk pace. It's one of the best pistols in my collection! Plus... the amount I saved in lawyer's fees was more than worth the purchase price of the gun.



Have a great week. We'll share the fun again next Monday!
