THE PANDA BEAR AND THE SNOWMAN 12-28-2016

From time to time I will post items that I think are both funny and interesting. After all, doom and gloom all the time makes Doomer Doug no fun at all. The video link is absolutely hysterical in my opinion!

DOGS AND LITTLE KIDS 11-25-2016

Given the level of chaos going on right now, from time to time I like to post things that remind me of exactly how beautiful life can be. Here is a link to a story about little children and very big dogs. I like it a lot and hope you do also.

THE FUNNIEST OBITUARY I’VE EVER READ 8-21-2016

It may be we are on the edge of death. It may be the fact it is late August. It may even be that I am increasingly going crazy. Or it may be this obituary really is funnier than hell and I need a laugh. Well, if I need a laugh I thnk my blog readers do also.

He assures us he is gone

William Ziegler escaped this mortal realm on Friday, July 29, 2016 at the age of 69.

We think he did it on purpose to avoid having to make a decision in the pending presidential election.

He leaves behind four children, five grandchildren, and the potted meat industry, for which he was an unofficial spokesman until dietary restrictions forced him to eat real food.

William volunteered for service in the United States Navy at the ripe old age of 17 and immediately realized he didn’t much enjoy being bossed around. He only stuck it out for one war.

Before his discharge, however, the government exchanged numerous ribbons and medals for various honorable acts.

Upon his return to the City of New Orleans in 1971, thinking it best to keep an eye on him, government officials hired William as a fireman.

After twenty-five years, he suddenly realized that running away from burning buildings made more sense than running toward them. He promptly retired.

Looking back, William stated that there was no better group of morons and mental patients than those he had the privilege of serving with (except Bob, he never liked you, Bob).

Following his wishes, there will not be a service, but wellwishers are encouraged to write a note of farewell on a Schaefer Light beer can and drink it in his honor.

He was never one for sentiment or religiosity, but he wanted you to know that if he owes you a beer, and if you can find him in Heaven, he will gladly allow you to buy him another.

He can likely be found forwarding tasteless internet jokes (check your spam folder, but don’t open these at work). Expect to find an alcoholic dog named Judge passed out at his feet. Unlike previous times, this is not a ploy to avoid creditors or old girlfriends. He assures us that he is gone. He will be greatly missed.
