Calling Mr. Hardcock! Calling Mr. Hardcock!

No Google Voice For You!I don’t know if you’re aware of the fairly long-running game of comparing the garbled transcriptions that users are getting from the free Google Voice service. It’s pretty big out there.

And now I know why.

Here is the first few words of a transcription I received from a Google Voice mail left for me this evening.

“Hey Frank, hard cock for with the A O X F Group, and I know it would be a long shot reaching you tonight, but…”

I have not altered a word.

In case you’re wondering, the caller’s actual name is Art Koster.

A “long shot?” “Reaching” me? I could go on like this all night!

Google: What’s not to like?

Java Forever!

Alright kids, this one’s an inside joke that’s probably only going to be funny for Uncle Frankie and a small circle of his geeky friends who do programming and web development. But I had to post it nonetheless because it fulfilled my Rule #1: it made me laugh out loud.

While employed at a certain large company in the American Southwest, Your Friend Flicka (that’s me) engaged in a long-running battle with a German-born IT Director over using an a server running an open-source operating system instead of Microsoft .net, which this computer-controlling Kraut insisted on.

Believe me when I tell you, it was a six month-long corporate pissing contest of the highest order between me as the new guy and the long-established IT wonk who simply would not even consider any software or OS that didn’t come from Redmond. Long story short, I won the battle but lost the war.

I apologize to all of you who don’t get the humor of this one and demand to hear from that small number of you who are currently laughing your asses off.

The Real Reason You Don’t Want To Watch Sausage Being Made

According to this story from the Associated Press, a man was taken to a hospital after being sucked into a machine at a sausage-making company.

Police said the man’s head and shoulders became stuck in the machine after it somehow activated while being cleaned.

OSHA should have a lot of fun with this one.

Should Restaurants Be Forced to Serve Gay Dogs?

Is Your Gaydar Going Off?

Is Your Gaydar Going Off?

In today’s politically correct world, one would think that public establishments could not refuse service on any grounds short of no shirt, no shoes.

But one valiant Australian waiter decided he would stand and fight when it came to canines with unnatural sexual preferences.

According to this story, originally reported by The Sunday Mail, a blind man named Ian Jolly and his female companion attempted to enter Adelaide’s Thai Spice restaurant last May with Jolly’s guide dog Nudge, when a member of the wait staff objected because he understood the woman “to be saying she wanted to bring a gay dog into the restaurant”.

Well, who the hell wouldn’t object? Hey! I’m trying to eat here! Do you mind?

“The staff genuinely believed that Nudge was an ordinary pet dog which had been desexed to become a gay dog,” the owners said in a statement to South Australia’s Equal Opportunity Tribunal.

I’m with the Teabaggers on this one folks. Political correctness has gone too far. First we have to put up with 27 handicapped parking spaces in front of every God-fearing 7-11, the next thing you know Will and Grace is in syndication, and now this. I don’t care where this waiter says he from, he’s a fine American.

Unfortunately, his convictions also cost the restaurant owners one.

The tribunal on Friday ordered the restaurant to pay Jolly 1500 dollars (1400 US) and offer him a written apology for discriminating against him on the grounds of disability.

What the hell is this world coming too?
