The Amplifier Prank

My friend is storing his amplifier at my house.  He recently emailed me, asking me to take photos of it for him so he could sell it on Craigslist without driving over to my house to do it himself.  Hilarity ensued when he forwarded them without opening all of them up.

Hey, if you find yourself bored and depressed, would you mind taking some thorough pictures of my amplifier and sending them to me?  I have someone on Craigslist interested in buying it.  See if there’s any blemishes or scuff marks on it, and highlight those.  I think there might be a small dent in the grill over the speakers.

The alternative is me coming over and taking the pictures, which works for me too.  If you don’t feel like doing it, don’t do it.

Croquet Tourney/Shameful Eating Binge 2009!

Here’s the deal. Croquet is cool, thanks to my cool friends, even though this year’s tournament did not bring me the wondrous praise that I got last year for playing a decent game.  Because I sucked.

The day is also one of my favorites because the food is incredible.  I think I should be bringing a dish, but do people really want me to bring some frozen Trader Joe’s appetizer just to go through the motions?  I think not.

The most memorable part of my day was watching my female friend, who was wearing a Packers sweatshirt, root for the Vikings to beat the Packers, since she described herself as a “Brett Favre fan.”

I’m confident that I’m less of a football fan than she is, but isn’t rooting against a team while wearing their sweatshirt a little messed up?

My Huge Media Influence

Yesterday, my name was featured on a Sports Illustrated website and I became internationally famous in a heartbeat.  Let me say, it has been a whirlwind.  Today, the website I discovered featuring Dr. Dick Chopp is being discussed again on Hot Clicks, and this time it’s because two other doctors at that urology clinic also have funny names – Dr. Stephen Hardeman and Dr. Lester Wang.  And apparently it’s all real.  Little did I know that I would break into show business with penis jokes.

I Made It Into Sports Illustrated!

I have made it into a Sports Illustrated online blog called “Hot Clicks”, which is a section of SI’s website “Extra Mustard”.  Apparently, this Mustard site is the place where “pop culture meets sports culture.”

My brother suggested that I visit Hot Clicks daily, since the weird links and videos posted there are often funny, and complemented by some sports crap that he thinks I should be interested in since I’m a human male who needs to be into Ohio State Buckeye football or something.

I confess that I have been visiting the site and I enjoy it.  I have been learning about things like touchdowns and such, along with seeing pics of hot girls and videos of idiots from around the world.

So anyway, a buddy of mine found a website featuring a urologist with a very funny name the other day.  So he sends it to me, and I send it to my brother, who suggests I submit the link to Hot Clicks.  The rest has become history.

Scroll down to see my name in bright lights under the heading “Real Or Fake Link Of The Day”.

Next I am going to try to get my name into Modern Bride magazine.  Wish me luck!
