What Fee?

“Verizon reverses fee after backlash.” Customers to Verizon: “Can you hear me now?”

They went that away ...

“Thieves hit car lot, swipe 25 GPS devices.”  Last seen recalculating their escape route.


“Chevy to Recall Over 4,000 Cars to Check for Missing Brakes.”  This should be easy.  Just look for the cars that are NOT stopping.

I'm shocked!

“LA coroner says Heavy D died of natural causes.”  Unlike many other rappers who died of lead poisoning.

I thought as much

"Fruitcake From 1941 Sells for $525 in Ohio."  Yet more proof that WMD's do exist and have been around for a long, long time.

Good Idea?

"Atheists aim to change image of penny-pinching Scrooges."  Now they'll start spreading around cash that says 'In God We Trust'.  Brilliant!


“North Korean defectors learn to adapt in South” … by watching NASCAR, eating at the Waffle House and fixin’ to go to the Walmart.

So That's The Reason

“When a football team wins, male grades drop, economists find.”  Thus a better GPA for GT students vs UGA students.

“Coco Crisp and Cardinals not close on deal.”  However, sources say that Cap’n Crunch will sign with Braves.

No bars here!

Fuzzy Math

"Romney Calls President a 'Great Divider'."  Also calls Gingrich a 'Great Multiplier' and says that Ron Paul is pretty good with fractions.

I'm Confused?

This Just In!

“Deal Reached to Avert Government Shutdown.”  Taxpayers asked to bend over and assume the position.

Thanks Susie!

When someone leaves this earth ... they go to a wonderful place where they get to design sunsets. Thanks Susie for tonight.

Now what do we do?

“White House Ceases Production of Presidential Coins.”  Just great.  There goes the change we were promised.

Don't do Drugs!

“NL MVP Braun fails drug test.”  Stumped by question ... 'Blue Ice is A: Methamphetamine or ... B: A Rap Artist.'

I Spy

“Japan Launches Second Spy Satellite This Year.”  Godzilla and Mothra …  nowhere to hide.

Sunday, December 11, 2011


"Feds Propose Unmanned U.S.-Mexico Border Entry."  I'm confused.  Don’t we already have one of those stretching from Texas to California?


GOP, Dems Point Fingers Over Taxes.  Voters to pull those fingers in 2012 with expected results.

Looking for Loving Homes

As many of you already know, my wife’s sister Susie passed away on Thanksgiving.  We miss her so much.  Also missing Susie is the animal world.  Susie LOVED all animals and they loved her.  We are attempting to find a nice home, or homes for three of her loving kitties.  Fred, Lottie and Minnie.   Susie’s husband Brad travels quite a bit and will be unable to give them the love and care they need.  Here is a quick description of the kitties from Brad as well as photos.  Please contact me at if you are interested in adopting one or more of these loving cats.  I will then put you in contact with Brad.  Thanks so much.
An older cat - very loving and calm - great for most households. She is spayed and had all of her shots. Warm and loving cat.
Fred is a lovable, gorgeous black and white 18 months old kitten.  His foster mom calls him "lover boy" cause he loves to be loved and kissed.   He was born under his foster mom's deck and has been neutered, had 2 of his 3 shots and has been de-wormed.  His Mom is a feral cat that has since been spayed and tested negative.  He loves to get his nose kissed and purrs up a storm.  He uses his litter box and is beginning to use a scratching post.  
Minnie is a petite, sweet, beautiful black and while 18 month old kitten - with a pretty marking on her throat ! She was born under her foster Mom's deck and has been spayed, had 2 of her 3 shots and has been de-wormed. She was the first to use the litter box and the scratching post.   Her Mom tested negative.  She loves to play with her big brother Fred -  they are just gorgeous together and will keep you entertained.  Would love a caring person to adopt them both but would consider separating them for the right loving home.

If Spiff was King for a Day

OK, if I was the “Dude (or Dudette) that be in charge” of this great country of ours … here is what I would do.  On January 1st I would check the national unemployment rate.  (Currently hovering around 9%).  I would then have a random drawing in the House and Senate and FIRE 9% of those folks.  Paychecks, insurance, all benefits … GONE!  Obviously those folks would qualify for Cobra Insurance if needed.  They would NEVER be allowed to return to their jobs again.  Retrain for a new career.  Isn’t that what we are told to do?  As far as the President goes.  9% of his or her campaign stash would be donated to the government to reduce the national debt.  Just think … every January we would be downsizing government and decreasing our national debt.  Just thinking.

Friday, November 18, 2011

A proposed constitutional amendment that would require Congress to balance the budget failed in the House today. Of course, both sides immediately started blaming each other. I just wonder ... "If politicians pointing fingers at each could somehow produce energy ... would we ever need a drop of oil from the Mideast again?"

Counterfeit $10 Bill

A Henry County student will soon find out if she faces expulsion for giving a counterfeit $10 bill to a teacher selling candy for a fund-raiser. As a public service here are the TOP FIVE signs you are holding a counterfeit Ten Dollar bill:

5—No U.S. Treasury building on the back. Instead, a Waffle House.

4—Across the top on the back it reads, “United States of America”. (No, wait a minute, that’s a WORTHLESS ten dollar bill.)

3—In place of Alexander Hamilton on the front, you see Al Franken.

2—The serial number is 867-5309JENNY

1—Four words … “In Government We Trust.”

Spiff Sports

Former Atlanta Brave and now Houston Astros’ outfielder Jordan Schafer has been arrested in Florida and charged with felony possession of marijuana. A police report says that black Land Rover driven by Schafer with its windows open pulled up next to a police car. Officers noticed a strong marijuana smell and saw Schafer smoking some wacky- tobaccy. Schafer admitted smoking marijuana and that he had more in the vehicle. A search turned up less than an ounce in a plastic container and a small amount inside “three small marijuana peanut butter cups”. WOW! I know whose house I will be “trick or treating” at this Halloween! Schafer was suspended for the first 50 games back in 2008 for a violation of baseball’s drug policy. There have been signs along the way that Schafer was having problems. If only his former Braves teammates could have noticed these tell-tale signs during their conversations with Jordan.

--Teammate: “Look, the bases are loaded.” --Schafer: “So am I.”

--Teammate: “I love the smell of freshly cut grass at Turner Field.” --Schafer: “And in my apartment.”

--Teammate: “We’re going into the bottom of the third.” --Schafer: “I’m already at the bottom of my fifth.”

--Teammate: “What song did you pick to be played as you walk up to the plate?” --Schafer: “Don’t Bogart that Joint, My Friend.”

Dufus of the Day

(Snellville, Georgia) 21-year-old Stephen Daniel walked into a gas station and told the manager behind the counter to give him all the money in the register. The manager started putting the money in a bag . . . and also started LAUGHING. Why? Because Stephen clearly hadn't bothered to take a look around before the robbery . . . or he would've realized there was a Police Officer in line right behind him. After the manager handed Stephen the money, the officer . . . Lieutenant B.W. Brown from the Snellville police . . . grabbed him by the shoulder and placed him under arrest. You can bet that Stephen will be looking over his shoulder when in the slammer. If you know what I mean.

A Tuesday Top Five

Randy & Spiff were “let go” yesterday from that radio station where they were drawing a paycheck. After years and years of getting up early to “Wake Up” the nice folks in Georgia, their routines have changed a bit. With that in mind, here are the TOP FIVE things Spiff Carner did this morning:

5—Set alarm clock for 3:30, wake up, toss clock in toilet, flush, go back to sleep.

4—Breakfast. Which beer do I try this morning?

3—Begin composing new country song, “Jobs may come and jobs may go but you’ll always be my baby.”

2—Call former radio station and attempt to win those much coveted fair tickets.

1—Look in mirror, notice unsightly nose hairs and say “Screw it!”

Good Morning!

WOW! What have we been missing all these years by getting up soooooo early. Life is good. Day one of a new adventure. Randy & Spiff ... Free Agents!

Breaking News!

Not to be confused with Breaking Wind! This just in! Randy & Spiff have been "let go" from Atlanta's Greatest Hits. This morning was our last radio show on 106.7. Thanks to all of our incredible, loyal listeners and friends who made going to work each morning so much fun. Without you we would not have survived in Atlanta for so many years. You are the very best! Who knows, we may even surface again on a radio near you. In the meantime, you can keep track of us here at or Company was sold. Strictly a business decision on the new owners part. Randy and I will be both FINE and DANDY. Too many blessings all around us to worry about a little speed bump like losing a job.

The CD Cover game

The next time you are snowbound or just bored, try this little game to produce your very own CD Cover. Got this from a friend and made a couple slight changes to the rules:

1 --- Randomly choose a photo of yours.

2 --- Go to Wikipedia and hit "Random article." The title of the first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

3 --- Go to and hit "Random Quotes." The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

4 --- Use any photo editor to put it together.
Here is how mine turned out.
