TIGF!!! (That's Incredibly Gay Friday): This one was too easy

Why??? Because my back hurts like hell and I need to lay down. I swear I have been treated to some Freaky Friday shit and have been transferred into a 90-year-old body. I had to work in the bucket today, as well. Being forty feet off the ground trying to fix stuff is hard when your back starts spazzing out. I just said the hell with it and went home. I don't need that kind of excitement.

On the plus side, I found out why Clyde kept failing the emissions test. I was conversing with the emissions tech guy about possible reasons and I noticed some arcing coming from a spark plug wire. Well, this guy was dumb enough to go and touch it while my truck was running and got some sweet electric lovin' from the coil. Remember kids, volts don't kill you, amps do. This guy got 50,000 volts, and his convulsions, plus having an eerie likeness of Andy Richter, just made me laugh heartily. Is this wrong? Well, he is okay, and now I can fix the problem and be legal once again. YAY! But having to get under the hood while I'm hurting is not going to be fun at all.


Once again, I don't need this kind of excitement.

One little triumph of the day: I told my boss (the male one--too many bosses have I) to cram something into his pie hole. He looked at me and proceeded to shut the fugk up. It helps to physically intimidate your superiors, I find. I had total justification. We were having coconut cream pie:P

Logophile said...

Richard scares me, and not in that tingly, yummy way.
He is incredibly gay, but not in that hot, sexy "Oh man, why are all the good ones gay" way.
Poor Clyde
Poor Andy

goldennib said...

So sorry your back is not feeling weel, but Richard is pretty, oh, so, pretty.

Clearlykels said...

Ha ha-- yes, yes he is incredibly gay. I hope your back feels better and that you are back to being legal. Also, my age is my age.

When I was 12 I was vacuuming my family's television room. However, the cord to the vacuum had been fraying for some time and my dad hadn't managed to get around to fixing it. Whenever we'd plug the vacuum into the outlet we'd all feel this little buzzy feeling on our fingertips. Then one day, this day, I went to plug in the old reliable elextrolux and *ZAP BOOM*... I was tossed across the room and landed on my back and unsure of how long I was unconscious. There was a family friend who was doing some landscaping in the front yard. At that time happaned to be looking towards the front walk's lightbulb and watch it dim brighten and dim again and he knew something wasn't right. As I lay there... 12 years old with my PJs wrapped up around my armpits I was awakened by the pounding of heavy fists on the patio doors that led to the family room. Woozily I crawled and unlocked the sliding door and as I did I noticed that my index finger on my right hand was charred, blistering and smelled a tidge like BBQ (ok, I added that last part for effect)... John (the landscaper dude) called my Mum where she was working that morning. She had him put me on the phone.
"Are you alright?" she asked.
"Yah, I think so. My finger is burned, though." I answered.
"Well, get John to fix the cord on the vacuum and finish doing your chores."
It was then I understood what "Sympathy from the Devil" means.

I love richard! and your feature of TIGF makes me laugh out loud just about every friday.

I am not sure about the electrical thing in the truck- I have a bad electrical thing in my mom van somewhere... glad you are back to legal soon though.

hope your back feels better soon, my Dr. always recommends ice ( I hate it) but with a little advil it will help reduce swelling and such. Take care QT

Celeste~ Of course it isn't gay. It's TIGF!

Logo~ Your spidey senses are correct.

G-Hobbs~ Exactly!

Nessa~ Thanks for caring. My back is slightly better this morning, btw.

Kels~ Now that we got that all cleared up, whaddya say we all go out for frosty chocolate milkshakes! Thanks for the concern as well.

Markis~ That comment was so loud it echoed in this room.

Vera~ Damn! Did your parents make you work in the coal mines too? Because if they did, we'd have that much more in common.

QT~ Thanks for the advice and concern. Also, I am proud to be your "Ha-Ha" Doctor.

Karyn said...

D'oh! Have you ever seen that clip from Whose Line Is It Anyway with Richard Simmons... oh my. I might have to send it to you just to make your TIGF complete and to distrasct you from your back pain.

Sorry about that btw - a nice soak perhaps?

vera said...

Grunty,
The coal mines were our reward for being good children! I fondly remember that lovely sulfur smell and I am reminded of the "goodtimes" whenever I hack up a hunk of black soot.

I was kinda hoping to see Leo Sayer this week.

And do you tell your female boss to shut her lady hole? 'cause that would crack me up.

Jules said...

Egan said...

I miss his appearances on Dave Letterman.

Spacecake said...

Why is the question and I am so glad I finished my porridge before seeing those pictures.


Yay.

Outdoorsy Girl said...

I saw Richard at the Phoenix airport once. He is even gayer in person. (And scarier, too.)

LindzyPinzy said...

aahahaha i love these photos just had to comment again! is that not like the happiest grin u ever did see?!

NiolK said...

I would love nothing more than to see Richard Simmons fight Leo Sayer. Simmons would kick his ass so bad.

Oh also to see Richie boy in the newspaper staggerin out of some club with a young slut on each arm.

Clearlykels said...
