A quick joke, the day before election day:

Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read "Vote Obama, I need the money." I laughed.

Once in the restaurant my server had on a "Obama 08" tie, again I laughed as he had given away his political preference--just imagine the coincidence.

When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there in disbelief while I told him that I was going to redistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in need--the homeless guy outside. The server angrily stormed from my sight.

I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to thank the server inside as I 've decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy was grateful.

At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn even though the actual recipient needed money more.

I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application.


I told you all to load up on the Slashers in the championship of Slamball!! Winnah winnah chicken dinner!

Where are all the slutty Halloween pictures??

Did anyone catch that Bruins-Stars game? Some old school flavor in that one. I think Shane Hnidy's two time beating of the same player in a 5 minute span was great. Not to mention Andrew Ferrence going "Southie" on Sean Avery - instant classic.

The Pats have a tough game coming up this Sunday. Three teams log jammed at 5-3, Pat, Jets and Bills.

Don't forget to vote tomorrow.
