I could not help noticing this item on a rack at the local Total Bev the other evening.  Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you “Pong Star“.  Yes, it’s a complete beer-pong “kit” featuring not only cups and balls, but also pen and player list.

Who exactly plays beer-pong other than college frat boys?  And would they actually spend the money to buy a “kit” when they likely have the doings lying about the house already?  And what kind of mega-dork would actually write out a player list?

(Well, I could see the ΣΠΕ house at Dubyanell back in the day doing so – remind me to get the former Llama Military Correspondent to send me the little ditty he and his brothers used to sing about “Spee-Dogs” some time.  Hilarious.  But who else?  Is the game suddenly popular with the gorram baby boomers again?)

Evidently, somebody thinks there’s a market out there.

Speaking of such things, I heard Toby Keith’s “Red Solo Cup” for the first time the other day.  Heh, y’all.

Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

Ol’ Robbo is hardly a global warming alarmist.  However, I would note that the temperature here is supposed to get into the 60’s tomorrow and Wednesday.  I would also note that the goldfinches are already starting to show signs of their summah plumage, and that the daffodils out front appear to be very confused.

I suppose the upside is that if I had to pick a winter during which the chimney is out of commission, I couldn’t have done much better than this one.
