Sunday's Timewaster

I'm borrowing from an occasional reader's blog for the title of today's post, but I can't come up with anything better right now.  I was digging through my pictures for another post while our host is away and came across some stuff I've collected over the years.  Some are funny, some are just interesting, but I figured I'd share with you all to provide a way for you to kill time on this Sunday after Christmas.

This one is from back in 2004 after the Boston Red Sox had won the World Series breaking the curse of the Bambino. I thought of Sarge when I found it since he's from Ol' Roady.  Whether or not you like the Red Sox, the video is pretty funny and can be appreciated by all.

This is a commercial for the Ford Ka- and that's not me trying to use a Boston accent (I pahked the cah in Havahd Yahd), it's called the "Ka."  This one makes me chuckle as do those videos of squirrels being flung off of decks, or Randy Johnson throwing that pitch and making a bird explode (have fun Googling those).

Speaking of Boston, It's still pretty cold and icy all over the northern US so this video is somewhat relevant.  Not that I'm gloating over the 70's and 80's I've had out here in Sandy Eggo, but...ok, so I am gloating.  Enjoy the video anyway.

This next one works for a couple of reasons.  Fishing is a nice thing to do on a lazy Sunday, and it'll definitely kill some time if you're so inclined, but what I really like about the video is that it features a PBY Catalina, one of my favorite planes.  I think it's from the movie "Always" but I'm not sure where I got it.

Speaking of airplanes, it's always a theme 'round these parts. The next two are examples of really bad landings.

Beer commercials are some of the funniest on earth.  The advertising budgets must be huge as was the production for this next video- advertising a beer I've had once or twice- Carlton Draught.

Enjoy that?  Here's another funny one, but one with a much simpler production.

So that's enough for now.  Let me know what you think and I'll consider a part 2 to this post.


  1. Tuna, you might want to change your blog handle to Allstate.

    Seems like I've left the blog in "good hands".

    Very nice posts, two days in a row!

  2. I agree with OldAFSarge - good job!

  3. I posted that Ka ad in wayback; it's one o' my faves. The rest of this stuff was very good, too! BZ.


Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
Can't be nice, go somewhere else...
