Remember the Yugo?

Yes, I do, but I don’t remember anything else.

Everyone who is old enough, remembers the Yugo, the cheap little car from Yugoslavia with a very poor record of dependability.  That reputation for unreliability, led to its demise.  

Too bad for the Yugo.  I bet that at least forty percent of Yugos served their original owners quite well, but so many people who bought Yogos had problems with them, that everyone else began to think, “I’m not going to make the same mistake.”

My question is:  “Why isn’t it that way with everything else?”



69 cats removed from Providence apartment

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Animal control officers have removed 69 cats from a Providence apartment.
Police say they were called to the home on Progress Avenue on Thursday morning. The animal control department had received a complaint about a tenant on the second floor hoarding cats.
Animal control officers, with the help of the Rhode Island Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Providence Animal Rescue League, took the cats from the apartment.
The tenant was not immediately charged.
The apartment was described as "dirty" in the police report.
WJAR-TV first reported the incident. They say the building inspector condemned the house.




Several times per year, you will hear of a story involving someone who has too many cat’s in their house.  These people (who are almost always older white women) certainly didn’t start out with a million cats, the day they moved into their homes, and they almost certainly heard stories about other people who made the mistake of having a million cats in the past, yet they still decided to try going the million cats route, themselves.

Others say these people are crazy, but they say they’re crazy because they have a million cats.  What about the days before these people had a million cats?  What happened to make them decide to adopt a life strategy with a hundred percent failure rate?  Did it happen all at once, like getting hit with a bolt of lightning, or did they mull it over for years, weighing the pros and cons of the million cat lifestyle?

Whatever it was, it’s happening across this country with several older women, right now, at this very moment, and they will be the ones we will be reading about in a few years.

There’s another lifestyle, with a nearly one hundred percent failure rate, that hundreds, perhaps thousands of people (mostly fat, younger white women) are seriously considering choosing, right now, at this very moment, but I can’t even mention it, or I will be accused of being a racist.

Why do they do it?  Do they think that they are so special, that they can beat the odds?  They’d be better off buying a used Yugo.

    1. You need to change the name of your blog to Boycott CRAZY American Women. There are plenty of sane, intelligent women out there, and they are every bit as essential to a healthy society as good men. My wife is one of them. She is twice as good of a human being than I could ever be.

      By all means, CRAZY women (and men) should be boycotted and otherwise avoided. They need to know that they are paying a price for their anti-social behavior.

      Change the name of your blog by adding the word CRAZY, and you will have me, and many other sane men and women as loyal readers.
