The “American Blogger” Documentary May Be The Biggest Crock Of Shitake Mushrooms Ever

I first saw this video on Barstool Sports but I’m thinking the whole thing has to be a joke, right?

Like a documentary is supposed to capture people in real life, if you watch that trailer you would think that the only people that blog are wealthy privileged female designers whose houses are spotless. Was there even one guy in the whole lot?

I feel like the whole trailer was something made up for The Onion or some satirical Saturday Night Live Skit where in the very next scene all these women hop on unicorns after farting out rainbows.

Somehow us lumping trailer loads of stinky herring at 5AM didn’t make the cut 😉

Dead–Tired Blogging from the Gloucester Sidewalk Bazaar

Fred Bodin Submits-

Dead–Tired Blogging from the Gloucester Sidewalk Bazaar

The Sidewalk Bazaar was swarmed on the last day, as expected. It’s fun, fairly profitable, and exhausting.

My potter Dave Matthews made a timely delivery of his mugs for the Bazaar. These are discounted at $10 each. Mohawk Trail mug anyone?

Laura Jardullo shows off her balloon dress, which she bought at the Dress Code. Laura was selling her headbands in front of the gallery. Photo taken with her iPhone.


Diana Long of Gloucester gets snaked at the Cape Ann Vernal Pond booth at Bazaar www.capeannvernalpond.org. Doing the snaking is Alice the boa constrictor. Alice the boa wanted to snake me too, but I demurred.


Great day at the Bazaar! City Councilor Melissa Cox asked if I’d collect donations for the Gloucester Fireworks Fund. Here, Phil Krone of Burlington, VT contributes. I now keep the container in the gallery for future donations. Come visit, say “hi,” and donate, even if it’s a dollar!

This Blog May Not Be For You

If you have been here for a while and can’t distinguish between politically incorrect humor and real life fact based journalism this blog may not be for you.

This is taken from my response to Cynthia Hill who for whatever reason hasn’t quite figured out the difference and more often than not in the comment section feels the need to scold me. ; I just don’t have the energy to spell every thing out for her every time she writes in to complain.

To those that can’t distinguish between the two or are so sensitive that they are offended by obvious liberties taken in the name of ball busting or humor there are much more generic feel good all the time blogs where delicate sensibilities won’t be offended.

We get to do politically incorrect. ; The Times, The Globe, The Post, The Journal doesn’t. ; ; ;

Here you go in case you are one of those that hasn’t figured it out yet-


I’d like to think the GMG readership gets it but you take everything so literally it’s exhausting having to explain the obvious jokes to your politically correct self.

Should I also take the time to explain to folks that might have thought I’m actually outraged at the Cambridge Health Officials endorsement of banning large sodas that its more about making fun of how ridiculous the notion that we need public health officials to dictate what goes into our bodies while I lay laughing on the beach as I write the piece ; pouring down super sugary girly-man drinks? ; Not Offended Like The Title of The Post Said. ; Also not serious when I point out that they should mandate that 7-11 stores be required to pass out super sized snickers bars with every 64 ounce Big Gulp. ; If you need me to spell this out for you- this blog probably isn’t for you.

Cambridge Health Experts Back Ban On Big Sodas and I’m Outraged

Should I actually take the time to explain that in my “Poop vs Lysol” post yes, Poop vs Lysol that I don’t really go down on my elbows commando style to exit bathrooms to escape poop/lysol smells? ; If you don’t understand that when I say “drop down commando style to avoid the poop/lysol smell” it’s taking some liberties to illustrate a point then this blog probably isn’t for you.

Poop and Lysol- The Poll

Do people still not get that this is a blog meant for entertainment in which everyone including myself gets skewered in the name of fun? ; If you can’t take a good natured ribbing like then this blog probably isn’t for you.

Have you not seen my rants about my terrible nosehair, male pattern baldness, armpit hair, ect, ect, ect? Do you not read the ball busting that goes on in the comment sections?

Jesus I’m Disgusting- Male Armpit Hair Poll

Please, if we cant laugh at ourselves and the rest of the worlds imperfections then maybe the people that don’t get that GMG is not Time or Newsweek, it’s for fun and you suck the joy right out of it when you and the politically correct folk like you can’t grasp the incorrect part of Politically Incorrect humor. ;

You say in your many critical comments on my rants that I need to get over myself. No, the folks that take every obviously outrageous rant and try to turn it into something serious that a politician is lobbying for need to get off their high horse and understand that this for entertainment, not politics. I cant stand politics.

Cynthia Hill,

Maybe this blog isn’t for you.

Update: Good sport Cynthia Hill walkin the walk submits-
