Oh how I miss old comedies such as this from back in the day!!
I know what I’m asking for for Christmas!!!
Bill Engvall is right up there on my list of favorite comedians! Here he’s talking about the pre-historic Dorkfish found in California … but he causes you to wonder just what the heck a corndog is doing underneath the ocean!!
Now these here boys is too danged funny!!
Here are the lyrics to this song that’s fast becoming a classic…
Bobby taught us by example not to look down a roman candle when you light it. He lost his right eye but you know, he’s a better lookin’ guy without it.
And that jumbo bottle rocket Don lit in his pocket would have flew if it weren’t for his belt loop. We were listenin’ to Elvis when it shattered his pelvis but it was cool ’cause it blew right at the end of ‘Don’t Be Cruel’.
This song is for all our pyrotechnical heroes. What they lacked in discretion they made up in combustion. The ones who lit the fuse and wound up dead, injured or lame, we salute you, the fallen founding fathers of the Freelance Fireworks Hall of Fame.
But the best has got to be Bill’s ingenuity with a man-sized rocket, duct-tape and a lawn chair. Well he did good I reckon, he rode a full eight seconds without spilling one drop of his beer.
This song is for all our pyrotechnical heroes. Risking mutilation all for detonation. They ignited the firestorm now we fan the flame. And we salute you, the fallen founding fathers of the Freelance Fireworks Hall of Fame.
Definitely one of my most favorite commercials!!!
Does it seem like time these days just flies by in a blur and ya don’t know whether you’re coming or going?! I used to laugh when the ‘old timers’ used to start off a conversation with … “back in the day…”
Well… I’m now finding myself starting off a bunch of my conversations that way!!! Heck I remember a time of being able to go to sleep at night with the doors open and just having the screen doors locked. I remember first getting cable and having to get up and walk over to the cable box and having to move the switch between channels and turn a dial to get the signal just right! Oh I could just go on and on….
This all comes up cause a long while back my youngest daughter was wanting to heat up some quiche to snack on. She was reading the heating directions and I overhear her say, “That long?” So I asked what the deal was and she was commenting on how long it would take to heat up the quiche… 1 minute and 30 seconds.
So a “back in the day” speech took off and I told her that I remember a time when TV dinners took 25 to sometimes 45 minutes just to cook!!! I’m surprised her teeth didn’t break when that jaw of hers hit the floor from shock!! (hahaha)
Can ya hear it?
Can ya feel it?
It’s the call of the SALT!!! I don’t know what it is but come March-time and all the way through into December… that saltwater is calling me!!
One of my most favorite methods to fish is using a popping cork and live shrimp. Yeah fresh-dead shrimp can work well but I just prefer me the action of that live bugger down there twitching and making those salties chomp down on them and then come up into the boat with me for a ride to the grill!!
One key factor that you need to keep in mind is how to choose healthy shrimp. When you go to get your shrimp, get them from a bait shop that you are familiar with and that provides good, healthy bait. This will take some time but ask around and GET THERE EARLY! Be sure that the shrimp are lively and scooting about … don’t get those that don’t look healthy or are slowly swimming on their sides or upside down and not moving!!!
But there’s been some research being done to find ways in which to produce more healthy, stronger, longer living shrimp for those serious saltwater anglers. Researchers are finding that a serious workout routine produces great benefits for the shrimp just like it does for humans! That’s right…. exercise. From the moment the shrimp is born it is being thrust into a program that has one plan in mind … make it bigger, healthier and stronger. Now researchers are not informing folks at this time of all their research due to secrecy clauses but a video of some of their research has surfaced and it’s only right that I share this with you….
The following video may cause an unending desire to go saltwater fishing. If it does, don’t blame me and just head to the coast and fulfill that “Assault the Salt” urge!
