Well here is Flashback Fridays Chapter 13, a weekly series of entertaining and fun flashbacks of blog posts I’ve written over the past 20 years of blogging. It’s surreal to consider that I’ve been blogging for 20 years.

Using the Wayback Machine to select a few old posts that we believe would be both interesting and humorous and to post them each week in this Flashback Fridays series. So, let’s take a look at what was going through my mind all those years ago.

When I was younger, I was such a nerd. Please use your discretion when reading these posts because I apparently used profanity a lot.

Let’s get to Flashback Fridays Chapter 13!

New Blogging Software – Flashback Fridays Chapter 13

February 18th, 2005 by MacBros

I’m looking into a new blogging app that I may end up using in place of MovableType.
I’m also thinking of having another Makeover: Web Site Addition. Just got to see how this new one does and if it will work using a template that will work with the entire site.

The next ones going to be fully dynamic and hopefully compatible with most browsers. This one seems to only work with IE at the moment. Certain people, not to mention names, “Corey,” would like to use another browser other than IE.

Gonna try a modern hip style using some bright summer colours that may fit in with the upcoming season. I also need to take a self-portrait (Tasteful) to use in a new logo I’m thinking of.

So I just got to get into the mood first.
1 down 11 more to go
tee he he.

WordPress has only been released for about two years before I started to think about switching over from MovableType. Before Movable Typre, I was using a CMS that I created on my own Apache server that ran on my tower PC.

WordPress apparently didn’t work well with IE (Internet Explorewh*re). Who woulda thunk it? As a web developer back then, anyone who was creating websites IE was a pain in the ass and we had to start adding special scripts in our headers to redirect that sh*tty browser to an IE Compatible theme.

There was a time I just stopped doing that and just had a popup display for IE users explaining that the site will probably look like sh*t on their sh*tty browser and offered links to Either Netscape or Firefox. They could either continue viewing a broken page or go and download a browser that was compatible with any website.

@ The Movies – Flashback Fridays Chapter 13

February 19th, 2005 by MacBros

Hide and Seek, what can I say? It was different, that’s for sure. It was also boring too. Halfway through the movie, I figured out the whole thing. It was so obvious what the ending was going to be. It’s been done before.

Constantine, AWSOME, AWSOME, AWSOME!! This movie f**cen rawked! The special effects were awesome and the movie has you glued to your seat through the entire length. About time an excellent movie came out! Can’t wait for the DVD to come out, it’s a definite rental! I was very impressed with this one.

Well, I got to go.

You know what? I think my taste in movies may have shifted. I think I would actually like to watch Hide and Seek again. Available on Amazon Prime by the way. I just watch the trailer to see what it was about because I don’t remember the movie.

Constantine is a good movie. Seems anything with Keanu Reeves in it I usually enjoy. Also Available on Amazon Prime. lol!

Have a laugh on me.- Flashback Fridays Chapter 13

The phone rings and the lady of the house answers, “Yes?”

“Mrs. Ward, please.”


“Mrs. Ward, this is Doctor Jones at the Medical Testing Laboratory. When your doctor sent your husband’s biopsy to the lab yesterday, a biopsy from another Mr. Ward arrived as well, and we are now uncertain which one is your husband’s. Frankly, the results are either bad or terrible.”

“What do you mean?” Mrs. Ward asks nervously.

“Well, one Mr. Ward tested positive for Alzheimer’s and the other one was
positive for AIDS. We can’t tell which is your husband’s.”

“That’s dreadful! Can’t you do the test again?” questioned Mrs. Ward.

“Normally, yes, but Medicare won’t pay for these expensive tests more than

“Well, what am I supposed to do now?”

“The people at Medicare recommend that you drop your husband off somewhere in the middle of town. If he finds his way home, don’t sleep with him!”

And another……….

“Perfect Password”

A woman was helping her husband set up his computer, and at the appropriate point in the process, it told him that he would now need to enter a password.. something he will use to log on.

The husband was in a rather amorous mood and figured he would try for the shock effect to bring this to his wife’s attention. So, when the computer asked him to enter his password, he made it plainly obvious to his wife that he was keying in……..






His wife fell off her chair laughing when the computer replied:


LOL! Those are still good enough to get a good laugh out of me. This is starting to be a funny Flashback Fridays Chapter 13.

Joke Time! – Flashback Fridays Chapter 13

February 21st, 2005 by MacBros

Men strike back!

How many men does it take to open a beer?
None. It should be opened when she brings it.

Why is a Laundromat a really bad place to pick up a woman?
Because a woman who can’t even afford a washing machine will probably never be able to support you.

Why do women have smaller feet than men?
It’s one of those “evolutionary things” that allows them to stand closer to the kitchen sink.

How do you know when a woman is about to say something smart?
When she starts a sentence with “A man once told me…”

How do you fix a woman’s watch?
You don’t. There is a clock on the oven.

Why do men fart more than women?
Because women can’t shut up long enough to build up the required pressure.

If your dog is barking at the back door and your wife is yelling at the front door, who do you let in first?
The dog, of course. He’ll shut up once you let him in.

What’s worse than a Male Chauvinist Pig?
A woman who won’t do what she’s told.

I married a Miss Right.
I just didn’t know her first name was Always.

Scientists have discovered a food that diminishes a woman’s sex drive by 90%.
It’s called a Wedding Cake.

Why do men die before their wives?
They want to.

————————————————————— —-
Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer
gut, and still think they are sexy.

In the beginning, God created the earth and rested. Then God created Man and rested. Then God created Woman. Since then, neither God nor Man has rested.

Send this to a few good men who need a laugh and to the select few women who can handle the truth.

Back in the good ol’ day people could read something like that and laugh at it. If they were offended by it, they just moved on. Nobody made a fuss over sh*t like that. Sure it’s wrong, but that’s why when you read it you cringe a little and you also chuckle a little too. Which was the point.

People who get offended over things like this today would probably never be able to sit through a Roasting or be roasted.

Have another Laugh on me! – Flashback Fridays Chapter 13

February 22nd, 2005 by MacBros

I HAD to post this one! Thanks, Paul!

The doctor said, “Joe, the good news is I can cure your headaches the bad news is that it will require castration. You have a very rare condition, which causes your testicles to press on your spine, and the pressure creates one hell of a headache. The only way to relieve the pressure is to remove the testicles.”

Joe was shocked and depressed. He wondered if he had anything to live for. He couldn’t concentrate long enough to answer but decided he had no choice but to go under the knife. When he left the hospital he was without a headache for the first time in 20 years, but he felt like he was missing an important part of himself.

As he walked down the street, he realized that he felt like a different person. He could make a new beginning and live a new life. He saw a men’s clothing store and thought, “That’s what I need – a new suit.” He entered the shop and told the salesman, “I’d like a new suit!” The elderly tailor eyed him briefly and said, “Let’s see…size 44 long.” Joe laughed, “That’s right, how did you know?” “Been in the business 60 years!”

Joe tried on the suit. It fits perfectly. As Joe admired himself in the mirror, the salesman asked, “How about a new shirt?” Joe thought for a moment and then said, “Sure.” The salesman eyed Joe and said, “Let’s see, 34 sleeves and 16-1/2 neck.” Joe was surprised, “That’s right, how did you know?” “Been in the business 60 years!”

Joe tried on the shirt, and it fit perfectly. As Joe adjusted the collar in the mirror, the salesman asked, “How about new shoes?” Joe was on a roll and said, “Sure.” The salesman eyed Joe’s feet and said, “Let’s see…9-1/2 E.” Joe was astonished, “That’s right, how did you know?” “Been in the business 60 years!”

Joe tried on the shoes and they fit perfectly.! Joe walked comfortably around the shop and the salesman asked, “How about some new underwear?” Joe thought for a second and said, “Sure.” The salesman stepped back, eyed Joe’s waist and said, “Let’s see…size 36.” Joe laughed “Ah ha! I got you! I’ve worn size 34 since I was 18 years old”

The salesman shook his head, “You can’t wear a size 34. A 34 underwear would press your testicles up against the base of your spine and give you one Hell of a headache.”


Seems this Flashback Fridays Chapter 13 post is full of jokes. This is great in my opinion because the past couple of days here have been sh*tty, but that’s a We thing and not a You thing so we’ll spare you the drama.

Flashback Fridays Chapter 13 Conclusion…
