Monday Musings

Some bad puns, the only kinds really worth reading, from this post:


Some people think my puns are juvenile….
….but I like to think of them as full groan

I got a new dry-erase board at work….
….It’s remarkable

I didn’t think that my orthopedic shoes would work….
….but I stand corrected

The floor was so dusty….
…. that it seemed to be suffering from sweep deprivation.

Never argue with a fool….
….they will lower you to their level, and beat you with experience


OK, that last one was not bad, at all. Reminds me of something Bill Murray is supposed to have said, “It’s hard to win an argument with a smart person, but it’s damn near impossible to win an argument with a stupid person.” During my tenure as Director of Baseball Operations for a major league team, the President/CEO once said to me that I didn’t suffer fools well. I replied that if an organization had a lot of fools then it wouldn’t succeed. By the way, a person without “credentials” is not necessarily without wisdom.


A question for the audience: not that you can actually put yourself in my shoes, but what car should be the companion to my 2016 Corvette Z06?


1963 Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk

1956 Packard Four Hundred

1956 DeSoto Fireflite Sportsman

1967 Cadillac Eldorado


Yes, the Eldorado was not produced by a defunct American car company. I would also have considered Oldsmobiles (an 88, maybe) or Pontiacs from the late 1950s/early 1960s, but these cars are more money than I want to pay. For example, from this Hemmings ad a picture of a beautiful 1957 Oldsmobile Super 88 with an unfortunate asking price of almost $30,000:



I must admit that I am not really a fan of cars with giant fins from 1958 or 1959. I also must admit that I am not anywhere close to pulling the trigger on such a purchase, but to quote the movie Diner for the 5th or 15th time, “If you don’t have dreams you have nightmares.”

  1. I enjoyed the groaners. I ALWAYS laugh at groaners …
    You KNOW which cars are my vote – I vote you get BOTH of them but don’t you DARE restomod them! 😊

    My paternal grandfather was like Sludgo’s father (Bring-a-Trailer). He was Oldsmobile Man. He had a brand new ’57 98 that (along with his farm house, barn, etc.) was destroyed in a tornado shortly after he bought it. Replaced it with another 98.


  2. Restomod to your heart’s content – as long as it’s not a Studebaker or Packard! 😊
    Editor to PackardMan: Shut up! It ain’t your money!
    PackardMan: (meekly) oh, ok …


    1. Hey, far be it for me to stifle free speech. You express yourself. Honestly, the purchase is so far away I haven’t thought about anything except that if I buy a GT Hawk I want a fully-stocked instrument panel including clock and tach.
