Day 5....I WIN!....And why I do what I do...

Day 5…It’s In The BAG!

Seeing how I am the only one even paying attention to this Positivity Challenge anymore, I am therefore declaring myself the WINNER!


You know what that means, Wifey!!! *eyebrow wiggle*


You’re doing the dishes tonight.


I totally made your challenge my bitch.

So In Conclusion:

Dear Readers,

I will try returning to my funny roots.

However, just like that old card says, “Jesus loves you, even if everybody else thinks you’re an asshole.”

And seriously honey, it’s what’s in my heart that matters, not what’s on my blog.

Besides, everything I post on here is just meant to be funny and make people laugh.

Yes, my humor often involves making fun of other people, BUT I make fun of myself too.

I can’t help it. That’s how my humor is. That’s how my brain works.

If people are offended by what I post here, then either the joke sucked, or they didn’t get it, or they are overly sensitive.

I mean, if you can’t laugh at yourself, then you’re taking life too seriously. (I'm back to addressing all my readers, by the way.)

I know not everybody believes like I do,(i.e. Jews, Hindus, Terrorist Muslims) but a writer once commented on the New Testament, “We are shown Jesus’ kindness at the wedding in Canaan, his wrath in the temple with the money changers, his sorrow in the garden at Gethsemane, and his suffering on Calvary. One has to wonder if the reason we are never shown Jesus laughing was because the world couldn’t contain his mirth.” I believe that.


This always makes me think of Monsters, Inc.

Here they spent all that time trying to collect the screams of little kids to convert into power for their Monster world, only to FINALLY realize in the end, that laughter was more powerful.

And also…

I’m reminded of a classic line in a wonderful movie that goes as follows:

“I like to think of Jesus in a tuxedo t-shirt, because it says I'm formal, but I like to party!”

-Cal Naughton, Jr

Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby

Maybe that one doesn’t go, but I’ve been trying to work it into a post for awhile now.

Geez....I don't even belong in the realm of your blogger friends. I'm sorry my suggestion elicited such degradation for you. I'm sorry you're losing friends like Moooooooog and disappointing people with your niciousity.
You win, you WIN...YOU WIN ALREADY! You were barely nice, but you weren't half as mean as some of your comments.
Tell them the truth Ed, are you really PW? do I beat you? or did you just possibly join me for a moment in hopes that there was a chance there was a place in the world for "nice"?
I fold. I'm defeated.
But thanks for trying. The fact you got a brow beating just in attempt to meet my challenge says a lot about you....and what you think about me.
Peace, Love and Fart Blossoms my man <3

Anything involving Talladega Nights is good in my book.

Ed said...

Thanks for the new picture babe.
It was fun while it lasted.

And yes, I'm NOT PW. I'm just happily married and wish to stay that way.

As I always say, child support for three kids would be expensive.


You know I love ya babe. You also know I don't give an eff what anybody else thinks.

In all seriousness, I guess I'm "oversensitive" as you put it. I just usually don't comment when you post an anti-___ comment (gay, mormon, jews, "turd brown" mexicans). But I'm sure some people do the same on my blog when I start talking about period clots or whatever. You are who you are, and I think you're funny and have a good heart and I like that you're a family man, it shows though. I appreciated (your attempts at) "positive week", for what it's worth. I'm sure there were others who did too, they were just giving you the business.

Cassie said...

AWWWWW. This was definitely one of the nicest of your nice posts. Do whatever you like with your blog.

Tony said...

It's your blog, Ed. You can say whatever you want! But, I thought your nice posts were still funny. You're a good guy, man. Everyone can see that!

If only my in laws understood that...

Hissyfits & Halos said...

Good, so I can start reading, again? lol

You're a doll, whether you're being "nice" or not. I do feel for your wife, however. She seems like such a precious girl. I read a lot of her posts, (from back in the BC era) and she's got a knack for writing! You should encourage her to post more!

Great job on the win! I don't even wanna know what you actually "won."

Hey----I should really try this challenge on hubbster. He wouldn't make it through one day, I just know it!

I call a truce long enough to say that I couldn't agree with this more.

Ick. Ok truce over.

ScoMan said...

Congrats on winning your challenge. Too bad I bet $100 you'd fail though.

I think that means you owe me $100.

Ducky said...

...I'm SO confused....

Tamara Dawn said...

Congrats for Winning!! What exactly did you win?

The Princess of Sarcasm said...

Good. Cuz I kinda like it when you call me bitch. I'm a masochist, I guess. But I also like when your wife busts your chops. So tell her I'm "Team Mrs." when she needs me. :)

adrienzgirl said...

I am impressed you stuck with it for a week.

I am one of those tell me I can't and I'll do it or die trying types too!

Kudos Ed!

Cassie said...

I love that was a hilarious movie!

Moooooog35 said...


オテモヤン kills me. Kills me.

Kimberly said...

Yay!! Sarcasm is back! I'll try not to be over sensitive and cry when you type out something mean and deragatory.

Forgotten said...

Dude. I hope you got to spank that shit because earned it.

Nice job...hahahaha.

Anywho, nice to have you back to not being nice (even though you not being nice was still funny).

Anonymous said...

I say just be yourself. Sarcastic, nice, mad, happy, whatever... Just post what you want to post. People will either like it or not. And if it's not - then there are a million other blogs they can go read!
