Joe, you poor bastard

Joe, you poor bastard

I admit that in my day I wrote my share of sappy letters/emails to women. But sweet Lord, Joseph Dobbie's email makes my pinings look like ransom notes. I know a lot of people feel that it was wrong for the woman who received this to forward it on, thereby subjecting the lovelorn Joe to international humiliation. But for those who would follow in his footsteps, here are two cardinal rules of letter-writing that he broke. Please learn from his mistakes: Rule #1 -- Inner dialogue is meant to be just that: Inner. Joe's letter starts off innocently enough, but the red flag goes up right away when he writes, "OK. This is where my common sense is telling me to stop? keep it simple and positive Joe." Well, that should've been the first clue. Unless you're William Faulkner or Hunter S. Thomps...
David Hasselhoff – “Jump in My Car”

David Hasselhoff – “Jump in My Car”

You remember those "You're the Star!" video booths they had at Disney, Six Flags and other amusement parks? For $5 you could put on some wacky props like oversized sunglasses and a wig, and then "star" in a video by lip synching. As an added bonus you received a cheap VHS copy of the video. Yeah, it seemed fun at the time, but when you watch the video years later, you just cringe and hope your significant other or children never see it. Well, David Hasselhoff seems intent on making a career out of that crap. And while the latest entry, "Jump in My Car," is no "Hooked on a Feeling," it has its strengths. And by "strengths" I mean that there were a few things that were only slightly less embarrassing than the rest of the video. KITT says: "Michael, this degrades us both."
