Not Really A Bartender Anymore

For those of you that have noticed a dropoff in posts lately, it is due to a new job I've taken with a company that sells custom cut glass and mirrors. I am working in the sandblasting booth, and it's extremely busy.
I may look for something part time on weekend nights in the future, havent decided yet.
This blog will stay the same though, I will still be Joe The Bartender at The Corner Bar. It's a good blog name, and besides its too much of a pain to change things around.

Thats just a quick update. There will be more posts coming soon, once I get used to my new routine.

Va. man ordered to pay damages for motel mess
Room was coated with petroleum jelly

I won't lie, my friends and I have done some pretty crazy things in hotel rooms. I recall waking up in LaCross one time with all my friends completely coated in fire extinguisher dust, and the eletricity in the room shorted out. My name is still on the black list at the local Red Roof due to a teenage party gone horribly wrong.

I don't think there is any explanation here that would satisfy my curiosity. If I were the judge in this case, I would probably order some psychological evaluation.

I really feel bad for Maria and Jaunita who will be cleaning up the mess. That stuff does not come off with water.

And before you start with the homo or masturbatory jokes, let me point out that I used to work at Subway, and had to wash my hands 100 times a day. I used petroleum jelly to help heal the cracking that would occur on my knuckles. I guess thats just digging deeper, isnt it? WELL, IT WAS NEVER FOR ANYTHING SEXUAL. I SWEAR.

All the sick jokes aside, try to picture this situation in your mind. You enter the room, and everything has a glare on it. Everything you touch is greasy. I suppose its just like going to McDonalds, or dare I say, The Buffalo Tap.

This man is sick, there is no doubt about it.

Ive got the wrong job

Obsessed lady asks firefighters to extinguish flames of her loins

"We also receive about 15-30 calls during the day from housewives who simply have nothing to do and are dying of boredom," says Raj Parab, one of the officers. "However, be it day or night, the content of the message remains the same: 'Can you extinguish any sort of fire? What about the fire of passion inside of me? Come quickly, I am all on fire."

Hey ladies!! I've got a hose too...
Maybe they are on to something here.

What a Fucking Prick

Proposal Would Hit Blue State Taxpayers

Well, here it is again. That old right-wing hypocrisy working hard. This is a man who for four years, has done nothing but preach for lower taxes. He blackballed Senator Kerry's plan to raise taxes for the wealthy.

How is this different from a tax increase? This is not an increase for the just the wealthy, but all the way across the board. He believes we should pay less taxes, but that we should be taxed on tax.
Looking at the numbers listed here, it says that Ohio is number 3 under New York and California. CA and NY both voted Blue. So, way to go Ohio!! You voted yourselves a tax increase. One that is just simply wrong. I mean of all the deductions that they could eliminate, why this one? There a large business owners who buy failing businesses so they can continue to lose money and write it all off. They keep the jobs until the end of the year, then conveniently shut the place down.
I would like to see what the difference between the tax cuts we were given, and the what the deductions add up to. I'm willing to bet one will cancel out the other.

Things remain to be seen of course, Bush may change his tune when his approval rating goes down.
This is a pretty bold step to take Mr. President. How come we didn't hear about it in October?

This One Should Piss Them Off

This has been circling around the the internet, so I have to make sure my readers get to see it.


10 - You vigorously deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions, but feel outraged when someone denies the existence of yours.

9 - You feel insulted and "dehumanized" when scientists say that people evolved from other life forms, but you have no problem with the Biblical claim that we were created from dirt.

8 - You laugh at polytheists, but you have no problem believing in a Triune God.

7 - Your face turns purple when you hear of the"atrocities" attributed to Allah, but you don't even flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in "Exodus" and ordered the elimination of entire ethnic groups in "Joshua" --including women, children, and trees!

6 - You laugh at Hindu beliefs that deify humans, and Greek claims about gods sleeping with women, but you have no problem believing that the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary, who then gave birth to a man-god who got killed, came back to life and then ascended into the sky.

5 - You are willing to spend your life looking for littleloopholes in the scientifically established age of Earth(4.55 billion years), but you find nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by Bronze Age tribesmen sitting in their tents and guessing that Earth is a couple of generations old.

4 - You believe that the entire population of this planet with the exception of those who share your beliefs --though excluding those in all rival sects - will spend Eternity in an infinite Hell of Suffering. And yet consider your religion the most "tolerant" and "loving."

3 - While modern science, history, geology, biology, and physics have failed to convince you otherwise, some idiot rolling around on the floor speaking in "tongues" may be all the evidence you need to "prove" Christianity.

2 - You define 0.01% as a "high success rate" when it comes to answered prayers. You consider that to be evidence that prayer works. And you think that the remaining 99.99% FAILURE was simply the will of God.

1 - You actually know a lot less than many atheists and agnostics do about the Bible, Christianity, and church history - but still call yourself a Christian.

Pictures Speak Louder than Words

Why Not Just Genetically Engineer Women For Milk?

Here we go again with a prime example of how completely different America tends to think.

While this story is not actually up to the standards of The Corner Bar,(or down too really) the photo certainly is. In America, the purpose of this billboard would be ignored. All the fundies would see is a naked woman on the freeway, and well, that's just not teaching good moral values.

I'd like to put this on Highway 35 in Texas, just to watch it make national news.
