Sweet Uncle Lou’s Friday Roundup: The “You Left Work Already, Didn’t You?” Edition


I get it. You’re annoyed that I’ve been slacking with the Roundup. It’s L.A. The women are gorgeous, and I like to sleep in. Deal with it. You could always read the links on Monday and be completely unproductive at the beginning of the week instead of the end. Life has somewhat settled down, not that anyone cares, so we’ll likely be back on a semi-normal posting basis next week. That’s great news for those of you who have missed your required intake of dick jokes. Tips are appreciated as much as they can be.

  • What if the world stopped spinning? Well, we’d probably win the World Series, for one.
  • A week after our country’s birthday, and we’re still celebrating America’s greatest hero.
  • Summer is here. Grill something. Or grill everything.
  • Here’s yet some more stuff you didn’t know about history, dummy. That list is getting AWFULLY long.
  • French Fry. There it is. The cleverest title you’ll ever see. And I wasted it on you.
  • I would have guessed Uranus.
  • Underwater basket weaving is no longer just for Southern Cal football players (at least the ones who actually GO to class). It’s serious business!
  • In case you were still unaware, Greg Maddux was awesome.
  • The newest Old Spice commercial is pretty cool.
  • Country Joe West is as big an asshole as you suspect he is.
  • Can hair of the dog really cure a hangover? I don’t know. I just stay drunk.
  • If you missed Back to the Future‘s birthday, take this quiz and ATONE.
  • Historical symbols have LIED TO US!
  • Do you still miss Lost and love reading? Holy shit, are you a geek. But this will help you with your lonely Friday nights.
  • Aww, what a cute little AT-AT.
  • In honor of this Sunday’s World Cup finale, BALLS TO THE FACE! (HT: level5)
  • Enough time has passed that I actually feel terrible for Mark Prior. (HT: Jeffrey)
  • I love a good pun. So here are some visual ones. (HT: Tom Trebelhorn)
  • Oh. My. God. DOUBLE RAINBOW!!! (HT: Santo10) This HAS to be a Cubs fan.
  • The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Dr. Who. It’s a British nerd’s ultimate wet dream. Other than Keeley Hazell, of course.
  • TWEET OF THE WEEK: Who doesn’t love a good Wes Helms joke?
  • NIGHTMARE FUEL OF THE WEEK: Matt Williams will forever haunt your dreams.
  • FEED READ OF THE WEEK: For you parents out there, Shit My Kids Ruined. (HT: morpheus)

That’s it for me, folks. Starting next week, the staff here at HJE has inexplicably pledged to start watching the team again and writing about them more regularly. Likely in a very mean way. God help us all. Oh, and we’re trying to get the site fixed again. Because this format feels older than Ryan Dempster’s jokes. Have a great weekend, jerks.

    Wow, it’s Sunday and no comment? Comment.

  • Ryan

    I enjoyed this post; as such, I am considering leaving a comment.

    I would have tweeted my response, but (1) I don’t have an account and (2) I don’t give a stinkin’ twit about it.
