Pat McMahon

A few pebbles stuck in my shoe

You know how maddening it is to have a pebble in your shoe and you can't get it out?

Well, once again there are a few pebbles in the shoes of life. Please allow me these occasions for venting. It saves so much money as an alernative to therapy.

One of the things that not only bugs me but it's something I'll never understand: entertainment or sports award recipients who thank God for helping them win. Does anyone really think that God checks record sales and influences the Grammy people to vote for the guy with the music video that features pole dancing and whips?

Why do those commercials with the fast-talking disclaimers at the end have to do that? They can't be understood and all the information could just be offered on a website where we could read it.

What do you call a motorcyclist who tampers with his bike in order to create an ear-shattering blast? He's called a guy without a girlfriend.

And finally the most painful irritant of the year. Ladies and gentlemen, Honey Boo Boo.

I'm Pat McMahon.
