It's Not Just a Job


     Good morning and welcome to SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!
   
   Or, for the rest of you, welcome to Sunday morning!
    
We know what the real football is though.
So, piss off, mate!



Could be worse.  You could wake up hungover tomorrow.
Or pregnant.
  
Hey!!  It's also Groundhog Day, you know.
Six more weeks of winter for you, A-Hole.
    I'd like to take the opportunity to direct you to my second blog (yeah, I do all this and don't get paid.  Up yours, Dave Barry,  I am an artist!), It's Not Just a Job.  Formerly known as "Such a Fine Sight to See," it was a blog I started a couple years ago to document, in pictures, things which I thought funny.  It had a whopping six followers, some of whom may still be alive, but I soon grew bored with it.  Penwasser Place held my attention much more so (yeah, I'm not terribly picky).
"Hey, what'd I ever do to you, Penwasser?
Besides make 1,000 times more money
than you for making stupid jokes?
Oh, I get it now."

    
    That being the case, I decided to apply a little literary Viagra and resurrect it as the place to host the serialized version of my (please excuse the snooty, pretentious term) Work In Progress, It's Not Just a Job (you thought I  just made up the title of this post?).  Of course, I'm taking a real chance here.  It should come as no surprise who I really am.  If it is a surprise, you're either new or you weren't paying attention.
     
"So, who is it-Penwasser or Lynch??
More importantly, who's that black guy?"
By "crossing the streams," as it were, I'm taking the risk that you may get too much of me.  It would be a virtual overload, along the lines of Sylvester Stallone movies or CSI shows (New this fall:  CSI: Des Moines).  But, it's a risk I'm willing to take.  After all, the new version of "Such a Fine Sight to See" can't be any worse than the old one. 
"DON'T CROSS THE STREAMS!!
I think it's a gay thing."

    
    Every week, I will be providing what I've written in an effort to satisfy the groundswell of those who are dying to read more about me.  To those, I say, you really need to get a life.
    
    I'll make each entry pretty short, which will accomplish two things.  Shorter posts tend to hold a reader's attention more.  Longwinded stories have a tendency to bore readers who are then easily distracted by...uh...oh...ooh, look, the neighbor's dog is crapping in my yard. 
   
    Wait, what was I saying?  Oh yeah.
    
    So, they'll be short.  Plus, I'll be including pictures in each post, so you'll have that going for you.
    
Pictures like this.
Okay, probably not.

    Be forewarned, though.  These are rough versions of what will hopefully be a comic masterpiece.  Or disjointed jumbles of the ramblings of a man on the back end of middle age.
    
    In any case, if you get a chance, go ahead and check it out.  The first chapter is posted right now.
    
    Or you can go back to sleep.
    
    Your call.
    
    Go Broncos.

Excuse me.  Excuse me?
Yeah, they're, uh, using your stadium.
But your team isn't playing.
You bunch of drunks.
And...who's the black guy?


NOTE: To my European, Australian, and New Zealand followers, who may not know (or give a rat's ass)...the Super Bowl is being played at the Giants/Jets home field, Met Life Stadium, between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks.

  1. Bloody hell! I'm not sure if I will be able to cope with two doses; one shot of speed keeps me ticking over nicely, but with two there is a real risk of overdose and triggering a psychotic episode! But I have an addictive personality so I will go and have a peep at your res-erected blog now.

    1. They are a little different. On the bright side, the other blog will only update weekly. Penwasser Place is open seven days a week.

    And darn that Phil and his shadow.

    1. You never know where I'll turn up. Or whom.
      Or is that 'who/"
      I really should figure out that rule.

  5. What? I want pictures like that. Already there at my lair, caught on quick that it was you. And actually it's no longer CSI whatever, more like NCIS whatever at CBSpinoff

    1. They still have the original CSI. I like NCIS although Mrs. Penwasser complains when I point out the inaccuracies. She also likes NCIS: Los Angeles. I can't stand that show because it's completely bogus.

  6. With both NY teams in the same stadium, at least they don't mind sharing

    1. As it turns out, even though there were two teams there, only one actually played football.

  8. I'll be sure to check out the new (ish) site. Personally, I don't have the energy for two blogs so good for you.

    1. I'm hoping the other site will be easy. The posts have already been written so all I'll have to do is tinker a little for space concerns. We'll see.

    1. I hope you like what you see. I seriously hope the sailor talk won't offend you. The salty language was something I felt I shouldn't change, though.

  11. Well I will go on over because I do what I am told, unless I don't want to than I do whatever the hell I feel like but today I feel like doing what I am told so I am going. Before I go though I have to say this Aussie doesn't get American football, hell I don't Aussie football so that shouldn't come as a shock.

    Hope that works.

  13. I was actually thinking of visiting your other blog until I saw the picture of the pussy-woman. Why eat walnuts when you can feast on melons?

    1. Why do you think I've saved that picture for over two years?

    I have no idea. I'm going there now...

    1. No problem! I know how much of a chore these things can sometimes be. Life can often get in the way.
      But, when you consider the alternative.....
