I think the proper term is "Masshole". Ask anyone from New Hampshire.

If this doesn't put you off, Bruce, nothing will...

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Had my first meal as a fresh Masshole, baked beans and cream pie, washed it down with a Samuel Adams (the Lager, you pervs).

Never heard that BeeGee song before, now I can't unhear it. I will get you back, AC! :evil:

I heard the Dropkick Murphys for the first time last St Patrick's day on the radio. Good band. :)

You realize no one actually eats baked beans in Massachusetts?

Now remember Bruce to be a proper masshole you have to learn to park on the lines, not between them.

Also you need to learn to drive in the bike lanes:



I'm sure these things will become second nature for you in no time!

Cyclists are worse than potholes. Sometimes pieces of them get stuck under your wheel well, in your radiator, or on your windshield, dreadful mess. Someone should tell them to stay off that narrow lane that always seems to be conveniently open, even when there's bumper to bumper traffic in the other lanes. :|

In any case, I am reminded of when I was a teenager and my father was hunting for a good bowl of clam chowder in Cape Cod. I don't remember how many "local" places we tried, and finally got a bowl at a chain restaurant, that for all we know was the same stuff you'd get all over the country.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

They call it "red chowder" here. Abomination. :nope

If it's not a bowl of butter and cream, then it's not chowder. Doesn't really matter much if it has clams in it. I want my chowder to taste delicious, clog my arteries, and shave at least one month off my lifespan per bowl, bring me closer and closer to sweet, sweet death.

Now that I think of it, clam chowder and white gravy aren't all that different. One has has chunks of chewy, rubbery bits, and the other has sausage.
