Well here is Flashback Fridays Chapter 9, 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 9!

Flashback Fridays Chapter 9

Talking Clock

December 29th, 2004 by MacBros

A drunk was proudly showing off his new apartment to a couple of his drinking buddies late one night. When they staggered into the bedroom, they saw a big brass gong next to the bed. “What’s a big brass gong doing in your bedroom?” one of the guests asked.

“It’s not a gong. It’s a talking clock,” the drunk replied. “

A talking clock? Seriously?” asked his astonished friend.

“Yup,” replied the drunk.

“How’s it work?” the bleary-eyed friend asked, squinting at it.

“Watch,” the drunk replied. He picked up the mallet, gave it an ear-shattering pound, and stepped back.

The three stood looking at one another for a moment. Suddenly someone on the other side of the wall screamed, “You a**hole – – – it’s three o’clock in the morning!”

LOL! I still get a chuckle from these old jokes. I’ve actually had neighbours like that before, except I wasn’t the talking clock. Yet for some reason even after all these years, I still end up with sh*tty neighbours to this day. *sigh* can’t wait to get our own property with nobody living next to us.

@ The Movies

December 29th, 2004 by MacBros

Well since TV is nothing but re-runs tonight, I sat my ass on the futon and watched ‘The Darkness’ and ‘Fat Albert’.

The Darkness was OK, but there is no way I’ll rent the DVD when it comes out. It was interesting enough to keep me from yawning and falling asleep. It was spooky in spots and there were a few moments that made your heart jump out of your chest. But isn’t that the whole point of a Horror flick anyway? All I can say is I watched it. No big deal.

Regarding Fat Albert, take a pillow with you if you bring the kids to see the movie. BORING and stupid. Typical, Guy/guys try to save the day but fall in love, but love can’t last, because the boy has to go back from where he came. YAWN! Couldn’t they write a story that hasn’t already been done to hell already?
Nuff Said!

MacBros OUT!

Still don’t know where I found all that time to watch so many movies. The Darkness was actually not that bad. I actually watched it again when it came on Netflix. Now Fat Albert, that was a terrible movie and I wish I could get that time back in my life. Let’s never mention that movie ever again ok?

Site Construction Update

January 20th, 2005 by MacBros

Well if you were here yesterday, you may have noticed a newer and better look.
Heads up though, the comments may not be visible at the moment because the font colour is black and blends into the background. That’ll change as soon as I get the comment template finished.

OH, CSI is on!


I ‘think’ this was when I was still using Movable Type as the CMS on the blog back then and I was constantly changing the theme and coding to get the look that I wanted. If you’re a blogger, then you know the torment we go through in finding that Perfect Theme.

And yes, I am a fan of the TV show CSI.

2 Morning Jokes

January 21st, 2005 by MacBros

Two Old Farts

Two Wal-Mart greeters were sitting on the bench during their break.

One turns to the other asking, ”Slim, I’m 73 years old and I’m just full of aches and pains, I know you are about my age. How do you feel?”

Slim says, “I feel just like a newborn baby.”

Rather amazed, his co-worker repeats his statement in the form of a question, “Really? A newborn baby?”

“Yup, no teeth, no hair and I think I just wet my pants.”

CAR Trouble

A man and his wife are awakened at 3 o’clock in the morning by a loud pounding on the door. The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push.

“Not a chance,” says the husband, “it is 3 o’clock in the morning!” He slams the door and returns to bed.

Who was that?” asked his wife.

“Just some drunk guy asking for a push,” he answers.

“Did you help him?” she asks.

“No, I did not, it is 3 o’clock in the morning and it is pouring out there!”

“Well, you have a short memory,” says his wife. “Can’t you remember about three months ago when we broke down and those two guys helped us? I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself!”

The man does as he is told, gets dressed, and goes out into the pounding rain. He calls out into the dark, “Hello, are you still there?”

“Yes” comes back the answer.

“Do you still need a push?” calls out the husband.

“Yes, please!” comes the reply from the dark.

“Where are you?” asks the husband.

“Over here on the swing!” replies the drunk.

The second one is hilarious.

I probably would have laughed my ass off before giving the poor drunk a push on the swing before going back in to tell the girlfriend what just happened. LOL!

School’s Out For WINTER!

January 21st, 2005 by MacBros

Well, today was the last day of training. I’m certified and still don’t f**cen’ know what the hell I’m supposed to do on Monday. I’m having a box of Keith’s all to myself and I’m gonna get drunk! What makes this different from any other Friday you might say? Well, there isn’t anything different, just that I’m finished 6 long weeks of training. CHEERS!

I was smart and had dinner before I started though, that way I don’t get trashed. Anyway, I have a few more templates to update and the site will be up full speed, after that, I’ll start adding some new little features.

Right now I’m gonna have a few beers, update the site, and listen to tunes. Listening to 80s Rock Station right now and they’re playing We’re Not Gonna’ Take, by Twisted Sister!
Wooooo hooooo!

Rawk On!

If you’re reading this part, that meant I finished the template update! Woohoo! Party On Dude! So far I passed 4 beers and I’m about to pass another. I broke the f**cen seal after the second beer, so now it seems like I drink 1, Piss 2.

I’ll be making minor changes like adding a graphic here, and a button there, and changing the bullet style over there. And so on.

I gotta go piss another beer


I think that was the training I got when I was doing tech support. I can’t remember the details for obvious reasons, Lol!

Who knows what I meant by breaking the seal? Post your answers in the comment section below. Pretty sure the beer drinkers will know what I’m talking about.

I remember whenever I had a few brews in me I liked to get into coding for the website. Beer worked like a motivational tool for me.

Flashback Fridays Chapter 9 Conclusion…
