A couple of years ago I noticed that Shell Oil merged (or bought out, I forget which) Texaco. Over time, all the Texaco gas stations in this area became Shell stations. The Texaco gas card I had was replaced by a Shell card I was sent. Then Mobil & Exxon merged, and became ExxonMobil Oil. […]
Something I’ve always wondered is why car companies feel compelled to use inflatable something or other to get attention. I mean, does anyone ever actually see one of these things and go “Oh. I wasn’t thinking about buying a car, but with this stupid inflatable here, I think I’ll pull in and take a look”. […]

Some people are too stupid to live. Like this guy. OMG!
Not Dubya (not that he’s an MIT grad anyway), but I’m talking about his twit brother Jeb Bush. Not only did his state cause a complete fiasco in the last presidential election, but now he goes and DOES SOMETHING AS STUPID AS THIS. What’s the message here? Act like a total jackass and you’ll get […]
In another move by perpetually annoying group of twonks named PETA, they.. aw hell, just read the news story below. In honor of these morons, I’ll be sure and have a steak tonight.
