All things being equal, fat people use more soap.

Links here are good only for the week of August 31. After that... is anybody's guess.

The Upper and the Real Deal

The BBHQ Monday Morning Upper

Click the picture for the
BBHQ Monday Morning Upper.

All these years later, we still cannot figure it out. This is either the most stupid and ridiculous thing ever to hit the boomer era... or is it wonderfully cute and hysterically funny.

Either way, we watch it, beginning to end — every time.

Hurricane Preparedness

Climate change; devastating hurricanes heading our way... OK, we hear you. The boomer crew will be attending a hurricane preparedness conference in an undisclosed location next week. So we have cancelled our newsletter scheduled for September 7 due to the inevitable hurricane.

We'll be back on September 14... climate change permitting.

This Week with the Chicowitz

The Server is Toast!

Republicans thought they scored a major coup when publicity forced the FBI to investigate the possible improper handling of classified material. After all, the then-CIA director David Patraeus was forced to resign as a result of events which led to a potential felony charge over the handling of classified documents. (Patraeus pled the case down to a misdemeanor.)

Last week the FBI took possession of the server which had held Hillary Clinton's e-mail during her term as secretary of state. “Oh boy; now we got her. This is gonna’ be great!”

But I suspect that the Republicans just handed Hillary Clinton a golden parachute from which she will land with both feet on solid ground as yet another a victim in the war on women, part of the vast right-wing conspiracy.

Do you know the Republican candidates? Study up. Need even more time? OK. Next week.. OK, in September, we’ll have a pop-quiz.

I Remember... August 31, 1971

On August 31, 1971, astronaut Dave Scott became the first person to drive a car on the moon.

Rumors that Scott ran the car into a ditch were proved to be false. Rumors that the car was a Yugo also proved to be false, though the car logged fewer than 5 miles before it was "retired."

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

1. First, our current events question:
Over the weekend, President Obama announced that he intends to change the name of Mt. McKinley, the tallest mountain in the country, to which of the following?
    The Tallest Mountain in the Country
    Denali
    Octuba
    White Tip
    The 59th State
    Mount Biden
    Mount Kenya
    Mounds
    none of the above

2. Edited still-shot from a 1978 movie:
What is the movie?

3. Complete the last line form this classic boomer-era song:

 
So let them say your hair's too long
'Cause I don't care, with you I can't go wrong
Then put your little hand in mine
There ain't no hill or mountain
       

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

Members can play all of our trivia games in The BBHQ Trivia Library.

The BBHQ Joke of the Week

This being the unofficial last week of summer, we thought that this would be appropriate:

Babies don't need a vacation, but I still see them at the beach... It ticks me off!

I'll go over to a little kid and say, "What are you doing here? You haven't worked a day in your life!"

Ain't it the truth!


Have a great week. We'll share the fun again on September 14.
