Missing your Kayak?

Most of the kayaks stored in the rack at Lighthouse Beach went on solo journeys during the storm.  Some found their way over to Cambridge Beach.  If your’s is missing, you might want to check for it there.

John Hiler Respresents! In Puerto Rico

Hi Joey, I love Good Morning Gloucester, it comes to my email everyday. I was in Puerto Rico for Christmas and visited the Bacardi factory. The tour is free and includes two drinks made with Bacardi rum products. It’s a fun and informative 2 hour tour.

When Do We Take Responsibility For Our Actions Series

So in light of last week’s post in which we examined the need for restaurants to remind their patrons to inform their server if they have allergies by placing signs all over their restaurants and menus I bring you another classic example of the ridiculousness.

Of course we all need to be reminded that the coffee we drink could be scalding hot. I mean, really I don’t know what I’d do without these reminders printed on each cup. But what really pisses me off is that the stores that serve up these potentially deadly scalding hot beverages don’t have placards and posters all over their establishments warning their customers of the dangers of drinking hot coffee as well. It simply isn’t enough to print them on the millions of coffee cups they sell.  What if said customer decided to pour the coffee directly into their eyes??? Shouldn’t the cups also tell the consumers not to pour hot coffee in their eyes as well?

It could happen. I’m just saying.

This leads me to the next idea- Toilet paper printed with warnings for people to not forget to wipe. We can’t just assume that folks will clean up properly and that could lead to a bevy of unpleasant consequences. We should all lobby our congressmen to enact the critical legislation which would ensure that toilet paper companies print warnings on each sheet of toilet paper reminding people to wipe.

We simply cannot trust the populace to remember to clean up their own shit.

Oh and while you’re busy writing your congressman on the toilet paper issue you may as well see if we can get some text added to the coffee cups. May I suggest "Do not pour scalding hot coffee in your eyes or on your genitals- It may cause damage"

I’ll now wait for the folks who have actually poured hot coffee on their nut sacks to write in and champion such ideas.

Thank you for your consideration on such an important matter.

I’m here to help.
