It’s that time of year – no-one feels like doing any work between Christmas and New Year’s and I’m no different, so instead of being all “serious”, time to let what little hair I have down and do the rounds of the trucker fun spots.
Sarah Palin is in the news of late with her Alaska program, so the following grizzly bear notice immediately caught my eye:
My immediate question is whether Mama Grizzly’s poop smells of pepper
Thanks to the TruckerFun.com blog for this one.
Surfing Youtube brought up a new one for me – Eskimo Sean. Immediately my wife, who is giving me subtle hints about how Alaska looks nice and we should go for a cruise there, advised me further that eskimos are really innuits and don’t like being called eskimos to begin with.
My only response was a blank stare – a good husband knows when to keep his mouth shut!
Back to Eskimo “Who Really Should be Innuit” Sean on Youtube – nothing particularly funny about these vids but they give a good trucker POV:
The music selection is pretty cool too – for some reason I just got into the whole video stream, and I guess Eskimo Sean should be looking at an alternative career option as DJ.
The Wheatgrass Trucker – for nutrition tips on the road, including make your own sauerkraut and oats and groats, you can do no better than watching what this guy gets up to. I’m not convinced by the oats in a jar being allowed to germinate yet, but the sauerkraut looks so good I can smell it over the video:
Next, a trucker walks into a bar….
Next, a dirty joke: a truck driver is heading out of West Texas and stops to load up on eggs, ham and coffee…
Finally, a word of warning.
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD)was formed in 1980 right here in Texas by Candice Lightner after her teenage daughter was killed by a drunk driver. Lightner left MADD because voice of the most politically active anti-drink driving group in the country switched from dunk driving to redusing alcohol consumption generally. Lightner is right – there is no need for you to not have a good time during the holidays, but do not drink and drive.
This is the last day before New Year’s Eve and party time to bring in 2011. If you’re partying, remember don’t drink and drive – your career, your CDL and your life are on the line.
If you are working on the roads tomorrow, remember that the thousands of A-holes out there who won’t think about the consequences of drinking and driving and make sure you are safe.
We want to see all of you in 2011!
