A BBHQ Insta-Quote:

The right to pursue happiness is not the right to obtain happiness.

And now, a word from our sponsor:

This Week with the Chicowitz

Beware the iWatch!

CEO Tim Cook says that the iWatch is the most personal product that Apple has ever created. There will be thousands of apps for the iWatch. (I can hardly wait.)

“Angry Birds” comes to the iWatch!

That’s what we’re all gonna’ pay 300 bucks for?

OK; fine, fine. Thousands of apps. But I’d like to focus right now on one terribly threatening aspect of the iWatch. Among thousands of other things, the iWatch will track your daily activity, measure calories burned, time spent in vigorous exercise, and time spent just sitting. How wonderful, huh?

Contemplate that for a moment, friends. It will monitor, record, and store your level of physical activity.

And it will remind you if it determines you should get up and stretch your legs, or go take a walk, or lose some weight, or pay more taxes.

Where would it end?

I Remember... April 27, 1965

Though it was too late to be of any benefit to me, on April 27, 1965, "Pampers" disposable diaper is patented. Pampers, of course, revolutionized diaper duty.

Having no connection whatsoever, as far as we can tell, on April 27, 1965, journalist Edward R. Murrow died.

On April 27, 1963, the #1 song was "I Will Follow Him," by Little Peggy March.

The BBHQ Trivia Teaser
 
Here are three questions from the BBHQ cloud:

1. Until it was shamed into reversing its decision, the University of Michigan cancelled a showing on campus of "American Sniper," fearing it might be too intense for its fragile students. The brilliant minds at the University of Michigan substituted, in its place, what movie?
    Patton
    The Dirty Dozen
    Jaws
    The Exorcist
    Helter Skelter
    Paddington Bear
    Bambi

2. It is the lead song of a James Bond movie by the same name: "For your only."

3. Fill in the missing word in this boomer-era classic:

  Well... I'm a friendly stranger, in a black sedan
Won't you hop inside my car?
I got pictures, got candy
I'm a lovable man
And I can take you to the nearest star.
I'm your baby

There are no prizes here... it's just for fun.

The BBHQ Joke of the Week

This week's joke would be thoroughly trashed by the politically correct police. That's all the more reason why we like it.

A woman walked into the kitchen to find her husband holding a fly swatter.

“What are you doing?” she asked.

“Hunting flies,” he responded.

“Oh. Killing any?” she asked.

“Yup. 3 males, 2 females,” he replied.

Intrigued, she inquired, “How can you tell them apart?”

“3 were on a beer can, 2 were on the phone.”

See.


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