Is DC Killing Batman???

Hey there friends. Word has it that DC is planning on killing the caped crusader.

Dun Dun Duuuuuuuuuuuuun!!!!!

After 70 plus years of Bruce Wayne being Batman, the writers have confirmed that there's going to be some changes. Not so sure if a new Batman will emerge, such as the original Robin, Dick Greyson, or if his character will be lost forever. Then again, it could be a ploy to get readers to buy the comics. It's not the first time that a well known super hero has been killed. I believe that this year saw the death of Captain America and Superman. Maybe they're following suit, who knows. For all we know, we can be in for a loop when they resurrect Batman the way they brought back Robin #2, Jason Todd.

It's surprising that DC is heading this way, especially with the success of the recent Batman movies. Or maybe they're setting us up for a third Batman movie. Guess we'll just have to wait and see where the Dark Knight ends up. Later!

Bush is no Longer the President

Hey there friends. Here's a little humor to start the day off. Later!

One sunny day in 2009 an old man approached the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue , where he'd been sitting on a park bench. He spoke to the U.S. Marine standing guard and said, 'I would like to go in and meet with President Bush. The Marine looked at the man and
said, 'Sir, Mr. Bush is no longer president and no longer resides here.' The old man said, 'Okay' and walked away.

The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine, 'I would like to go in and meet with President Bush. The Marine again told the man, 'Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Bush is no longer president and no longer resides here.' The man thanked him
and, again, just walked away.

The third day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the very same U. S. Marine, saying 'I would like to go in and meet with President Bush. 'The Marine, somewhat agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, 'Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Bush. I've told you already that Mr. Bush
is no longer the president and no longer resides here. Don't you understand? 'The old man looked at the Marine and said, 'Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it.'

The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said, 'See you tomorrow, sir.'

What I Learned From my Mother

Hey there. I received this in my inbox today and I started twitching. lol Brought me back to the days when I was a lad. I'm sure I'm not the only one. For those of you that don't read or speak Spanish, I left a very "loose" translation underneath. For those of you that do speak and understand, I'm sure you've heard more than one of these phrases from your mother. Enjoy.

The Great things mother taught me:

My mother taught me about RELIGION -
"Ay Bendito, pidele a Dios que yo no te agarre, cabron."
"Oh young one, pray to God that I don't get my hands on you, you bastard"
(I heard this from my mother, aunts, uncles, and grandmothers... on more than one occasion...)

My mother taught me about ANTICIPATION -
"Deja que llegue a la casa, pinche chamaco."
"Just wait until we get home, f*ckin' kid"

My mother taught me about about ROOTS -
"Malagradecido, cuando yo era chica, no tenia nada!"
"Ungrateful bastard, when I was a child, I had nothing!"

My mother taught me about LOGIC -
" Como que porque? porque si!"
"What do you mean why? Because I said so!"

My mother taught me about INSPIRATION -
"Si llegas con malas calificaciones te voy a dar con la chancla, cabron!"
"If you come home with bad grades, I'm going to whack you with my sandal, you bastard!"

My mother taught me about WISDOM -
"Tu crees que sabes todo, aprende a limpiarte la cola primero!"
"You think you know it all, learn how to wipe your ass first!"

The Perfect Coupon... For Lotions???

Hey there friends. I scored on a XBOX 360!!! YES! It's on it way now. I won the bid, all checks out, and it's in a UPS truck on it's way to my living room. Now, I'm on a mission to find rock band at a discounted price. I have many sites that I visit to look for deals and online coupons to use. While on one of the sites, looking for a good coupon to use (somewhere in the vicinity of 10% to 15% off my total), I stumbled upon this coupon code. Look at the top code...

You read that right, friends. That says, "JAQMEOFF". Coincidentally, it's 10% off on lotions. HA HA HA HA HA!!! Some disgruntled programmer must have added that code to score on discounted lotions when he ran out. LMAO I thought it was a prank at first but the code has a 60% success rate! Which means that some people used the code and it worked! I just had to take a break from my quest for Rock Band to share that with you all. You don't run across coupons like that everyday. Later.

The kids have a tournament that they are trying to get in to during the Thanksgiving week but are a little short on funds. The fundraiser is targeting adults that would like to spend a day at Harrah's Casino in San Diego. Raffles and games will be played and food and drinks (coffee, soda, water, BEER) will be given to all participants. Each ticket is $25 so if you're interested in helping out our local kid's basketball team, please shoot me an Email and I will give you the details. The trip takes place this Saturday. You need to live in the southern California area to attend but if you want to donate any funds, please use the donate button on this page. Anyone that makes a donation of a dollar or more will have a link on my site for the remainder of the year under the "Supporters of the Southeast Warriors". Make sure you leave your online "identity" in the description so that you can get your link up. Many thanks friends and thanks for the support. Later!
