One morning I saw an online survey about refinancing your mortgage through the HARP program and thought I’d see what we might be able to save. I filled out the questionnaire, and then it began asking for my name, phone, email, address, etc., all the while saying I would never be contacted.

Well, the autofill on the computer started with Carlos’ name and no sooner that I had hit the enter button to find my savings, did the phone start ringing from Quicken Loans. I ignored the first four calls, but on the fifth, I politely told the caller that Carlos wasn’t home, and we weren’t interested in talking refinance right then, but that it was something we would look into.

Cut to the evening when we get home from work and there are messages and messages from Quicken Loans and evidence of 8-10 calls from them during the day. Right after dinner, the phone rang, and, yes, Quicken Loans. Carlos took the call and, well, let’s just say he was like Ricky Ricardo ripping Lucy a new one for one of her hairbrained schemes.

Yes, there are Hot Men coming, but I thought I’d start with a Hot Man … Craig Melvin recently stepped down as Saturday anchor of NBC’s Today because, rumor has it … I love that song … he is being groomed to join Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb as an anchor on the weekday Today show.

Um, if you need help ‘grooming’ him, I have some vacation time coming …
This week in GOP Asshattery … Rodney Garcia, the GOP candidate for Montana’s 52nd State House District, has repeatedly misgendered Democratic primary winner Amelia Marquez, a Latina transgender woman; Garcia has repeatedly referred to Marquez by her birth name, claiming—in his own words—that he did so as a display of “respect and courtesy.”’

It’s funny, and sick and sad, because the GOP knows nothing about respect and courtesy.
I am not a fan of Sia, but after reading this, I do like her for this.

Back in 2015, Sia was the musical guest on SNL and the host was one Donald ____. Sia says she ran into ____ and his work wife Ivanka, on the way to her dressing room after her performance, and ____asked:
“We’ve got to get a photo!”
And she replied”
“Actually, do you mind if we don’t? I have a lot of queer and Mexican fans, and I don’t want them to think that I support your views.”
Of course, you know he left and had a hissy fit until Ivanka could put him down for the night.

Or called a porn star to bang him.
I know you may not believe me, but these are a thing … Cowboy Sandals. What the well-dressed redneck is wearing to the hoe-down.
Reacting to the recent avalanche of reports of pedophile priests raping children and running rampant and unchecked through the Catholic Church, newly minted Mexican Cardinal Sergio Obeso Rivera has suggested that victims who accuse priests should be “ashamed” because they too have skeletons in their own closets.

Yup, it’s victim blaming time in the Church.
Dino Sajudin, the former _____ Tower doorman, has been released from his non-disclosure agreement and is now free to talks about the child _____ fathered with his housekeeper.

Wouldn’t it be fabulous if the housekeeper was an undocumented immigrant?

Asking for a country …
Fiscal Conservative Republican Alert!

The Department of Agriculture is going to pay $4.7 billion to farmers growing soybeans, cotton and other products that were hit by _____’s tariffs.

Making America Great? Or having taxpayers pay farmers because you’re a tiny little man with a tiny little orange dick?
Betty Shelby used to be a police officer in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but left in 2016 after she was acquitted of manslaughter for shooting an unarmed black man to death.

Cuz, she’s white …and he was black. Recently, Shelby returned to Tulsa, albeit working for a sheriff’s office in a nearby county, with a new job, and it’s a doozy.

She will be teaching a course on helping police officers "survive" the aftermath of controversial shootings such as the one in which she was involved … shooting an unarmed man to death.

Yes, because it’s all about the police officers and what they go through when they murder black Americans … for being black.
In better gun news … California has just passed new Gun Control bills that are expected to be signed by the Governor which include a lifetime ban on owning firearms for people convicted of domestic violence.

Take that first step, California, and lead the way.
Oh gosh darn … former Alaska Governor, the Half-Term Quitter, AKA Mama Grizzly Bore™, has not been invited to attend funeral services for John McCain. A source within that family, it was probably Blister, said that “out of respect to Senator McCain and his family we have nothing to add at this point.”

Look, we all know she wasn’t invited because she’d roll up to the funeral in some bumpersticker-plastered Winnebago, with a BBQ grill strapped to the top, a dune buggy being towed behind, and come out wearing her fancy going-to-dinner black overalls slurping a Big Gulp, surrounded by that brood of miscreants and white trash.

Or …. The McCain’s don’t like her. Yeah, that’s it.
Don't forget ...that ALLEGEDLY the President of the United States, pouting in the Oval Office because reporters are asking about John McCain.

A grown-assed man. Seriously,. Ivanka, put him down for his nap.
This week’s Hot Men are old school …because I caught them both in old movies.

First up, Montgomery Clift, the closeted gay actor, and hottie, who I saw recently in A Place In The Sun. Damn, he was fine.

And then I saw The Godfather again and was taken by how hot Al Pacino … young Al Pacino …was; he could make me an offer any time.

Just sayin’.

You go, Carlos! Muy macho!
Loved the description of the tundra hillbilly klan attending the funeral. You left out one important feature, though. They'd be wearing those oh so chic cowboy sandals! Wait until Maddie hears about those!
The tweet is perfect. I can't even listen to an impersonation of this___ (fill in the blank).

If Delirium Tremens had a smidgen more intelligence he'd qualify to be a bit of slime in an unwashed toilet bowl.

Deedles said...

@Helen Lashbrook- Delirium Tremens, HAH! I love you so much right now!

the dogs' mother said...

((Carlos)) You give 'em hell!

Dave R said...

First of all - Monty was a first class hotty!

Palin wasn't invited because her white trash ass cost John McCain the election.

The idea that the Idiot Jerk has sex with anybody, even his housekeeper, is repulsive as hell.

The Catholic church is self=immolating.

Craig Melvin isn't really being groomed, he's being taught how to deal with STUPID.

Oh, Bob, I bet you had some 'splainin' to do...

I get so excited when I see the words "Tales of Carlos"

As for that Cardinal Sergio Obese Cry-Me-A-Rivera, I'd wager that if we all have skeletons in our closet (and who doesn't?) I'd wager that the vast majority of ours do NOT include child rape/molestation - and furthermore we do NOT belong to an organisation which is keen to cover up for us despite being aware of the truly appalling seriousness - and blackest of mortal SINS! - of the crimes. Your eminence, with all due respect, GO TO HELL - for eternity plus one day!!!
