It’s a Continental Christmas…….   no comments

Posted at 12:46 pm in rivercityvibe

Can someone explain to me why the Continental flight I flew between Houston and Jacksonville yesterday was still playing Christmas music over its sound system?*

Using the Gregorian Calendar, no doubt.......

Using the Gregorian Calendar, no doubt.......

Though true, and baffling, this is, of course, my way of explaining my online absence. I’ve been on the west coast, and they do not have “the internet” there…….

Apparently they are trying to develop something similar in a place with the unlikely name of “Silicon Valley”

(*I would really like an answer, so am sending this link to customer service).

Six kinds of all wrong.   no comments

This is Shauna Sands on the beach, recently.

I’ll confess I can’t get past the Urban Outfitters beach bag. Every eleven year old emo‘s dream.

PETA are idiots, I’m afraid…….   no comments

Posted at 11:24 pm in rivercityvibe

I love animals. I am well known for preferring them to humans. I was once asked whether my compassion toward the animal kingdom extended to a concern for the well-being of my fellow man, particularly children. I thought about it, and gave the only answer I could……

“Curiously, no.”

Seriously, I’m as mystified as you are. I love animals. People? I can take ’em or leave ’em.

Anyway, with my bona fides established, I need to say something about those idiots at PETA:

1. For a start, they kill animals, probably (

2. They are the biggest bunch of bullshit artists going.

Exhibit A is their so-called Superbowl advertisement, which they claim has been banned from the airwaves. Apparently this is because it is too sexy to broadcast. I, however, think it is because it is low grade, un-resonant crap that should not be inflicted on a mass audience. There are some expressions of free speech that are so utterly worthless that the first amendment does not apply. This is true, by the way.  I looked it up.

See what you think:

‘Veggie Love’: PETA’s Banned Super Bowl Ad

And if you want to help animals, try First Coast No More Homeless Pets. These people are saints.

I have Man Flu   no comments

Posted at 8:21 am in rivercityvibe

I couldn’t post yesterday because I had Man Flu. I won’t describe the symptoms to you, let’s just say they make Ebola look like a trip to Disney. It wasn’t “flu”, it wasn’t “a cold”. It was man flu. Let’s get that one guy from Shaun of the Dead to illustrate it:

(I didn’t get half of it either, so here’s the explanation: 999 is what the Brits use instead of 911 (lazy). LEMSIP is not, as I first thought, the name of a branch of government, dealing with the dispensation of socialised medicine, rather it is an over-the-counter cold cure. And CBBC is Childrens’ BBC.

I have to do everything around here.

And I’m so poorly………)

Something for the Weekend # 15   no comments

Posted at 1:12 pm in rivercityvibe

This is a particularly good one, in my opinion. A young lady by the name of Raica Oliveira, Brazilian, but no indication she is descended from fugitive Nazis.



The usual source tells us:

Oliveira opposes posing nude: “I could not pose nude. Nothing against those who do, but I never felt right about it. It’s not something that would make me proud.”

We’ll see about that.

UF turns out comedy legends….   no comments

Posted at 7:31 am in rivercityvibe

It appears that some GOD OF COMEDY hacked into the University of Florida emergency notification system yesterday. His message? The brilliant:


Our foreign readers might wish for a little explanation. The fact is, due to our national propensity toward abusing our gun laws by using rifles, handguns etc. to massacre students on otherwise friendly college campuses, most universities now have emergency systems whereby instructions to avoid dangerous gunmen, ravening beasts, sexual predators etc. can be communicated to the student body via email, text etc.

It was only a matter of time before someone saw the comedy potential in this…….

Captive no longer......

Captive no longer......

The Andromeda Strain-style scenario that that particular message brings to mind is good material.

(Aside: This contrasts favorably with my own poor record of university pranks. My highlight, it shames me to admit, was writing “Nelly is a spunk-trumpet” in the snow under my tutor’s office window one night. He was popularly known as Nelly. Poor guy.)

Presidential bedroom revelation……?   no comments

Posted at 1:39 pm in rivercityvibe

Does this lady give us weird and unsavory insight into the first couple’s sexual practices, or is it just me?

Touching, kissing and even what?!

I’m shocked. As I’ve consistently maintained, it’s always the quiet ones.

Dead set legend……   1 comment

We have covered Kardashian before. Our interest in her extends about as far as the one guy on the right’s does, below…..

I’d like to issue him with a Presidential pardon for all his crimes, and the Congressional Medal of Honor, for services to humor. If anyone knows him, please put me in touch.

It’s that time again…..   no comments

My regular thing pointed out to me (once more) that the answer to the question posed two posts ago “who doesn’t like pictures of rifles?” was in fact “women”. After I accused her of sexism and betraying the sisterhood, she cited the recent pictures on this website as evidence of my own (and I quote) “puerile obsession with womens’ bodies. Particularly their top halves.”

Absolute nonsense. Here’s a guy to prove it.

The one on the left, guys.....

The one on the left, guys.....

This is Paul Walker, from the Fast and the Furious.

(I don’t know either).

More fun with beer ads…….   no comments

Posted at 4:25 am in rivercityvibe

Following on from the hilarious Heineken ad posted recently, a keen eyed member of the rivercityvibe faithful sent in the following worthwhile piece of commercial/viral advertising, from the good folks in Dublin, who make the black stuff:

Share your beer with friend? Not likely.
