What's in a name? Nothing. Especially if you're selling tea.

In Act 2, scene 2 of Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare writes:

O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father, and refuse thy name;
Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,
And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.

[Aside.] Shall I hear more, or shall I speak at this?


’Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
Thou art thyself though, not a Montague.
What’s Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O! be some other name:
What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call’d,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name;
And for that name, which is no part of thee,
Take all myself.

Ya see, that’s all fancy talk for "You can all "chocolate" "dog shiz" and it won’t alter the taste; chocolate tastes like chocolate no matter what you call it.

Attack of the Non-Killer Tomatoes

Look, sometimes the tomatoes don’t kill – they’re just behind you. At the grocery store. They’re not up to no good; they just want to make sure you’re clear on where they are hanging out.

That is all.

Frozen! (dog photo)


This is completely amazing to me: he’s standing in the snow, but there’s no dog tracks. The snow is totally frozen!

Run, it’s the merchandising execution team!


I totally want to be on the merchandising execution team! I presume that their job is to execute hammers when the murder a nail.

Which Star Wars Character Are You? quiz fail


This’ll teach me to take online quizzes.

LIVE BLOG: Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting

Hello all!  The live blogging from the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting should begin around 6!

I have arrived. The crowds are crazy on 6th Ave, but not nearly as bad on 5th Ave.

Hand Dryer Humor



Somebody knocked it out of the park – or should I say – mocked it out of the park? But yeah – well done, some guy in the movie theater bathroom.  This is the best graffiti ever.

Rubber Band Ball


Here’s my current rubber band ball – I threw in that quarter for scale. All of the tan rubber bands came from the post office’s daily mail delivery while the green ones are from Whole Foods. Those are two organizations that love giving out rubber bands.
My god, this is a dull post.   I’ll try to do better tomorrow.

Car with cars on it


A car with cars on it? That is bonkers! Who would do something so wacky?

This was sent in by creativejamie.com contributor George, who you can see on episodes of mixers and movie reviews.

Photo after the smallest hurricane ever


It was windy and raining, but for the most part, the tiny hurricanes here in Bergen County New Jersey did little to no damage. I got the above photo with its eerie lighting toward the end of the day.

Six Flags Great Adventure Skyway cable car photos

Here are some photos of the Six Flags Great Adventure Skyway cable car. I’ll let them speak for themselves. Enjoy!




Fright Fest at Six Flags Great Adventure


While we didn’t have the opportunity to take in allof the Six Flags Great Adventures Fright Fest opportunities, we did enjoy the decor and performance by the zombies that they let loose throughout the park.

The hippest curb your dog sign around


What else can you say? That’s the best curb your dog sign I’ve ever seen.

Tomato smile


Now that is one happy tomato.  I wonder what’s got the rest of the tomatoes down.

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign…

I like signs – I can’t explain why, but I think signs are awesome.  I talk about them all the time!


Here’s today’s sign, found at a small Italian restaurant.   As you can see, they’ve… What, gone for a Morse Code style?  I get that the dots are there to break up the words, but for some reason, this is still very funny to me.

That’s all – nothing too out of the ordinary.   This short post might be a sign that my tendinitis is bothering me!

Lowes sells potentially racist plant


Whoa there, Lowes!  Easy now!  I’m pretty sure you can’t say that.   Sounds wrong.   Yeah, I’m fairly certain this plant is racist.

Hofbrau beer packaging is the least likely anomaly of all time


Much to my surprise, the Hofbrau beer packaging included the only cleavage I could find in the beer aisle. You’d think it would be a veritable waste land of scantily clad women, but not so.
Wonders will never cease!
(Forgot to check if their tag line was “Drink till she looks like this.”)

Sand Shadow (photography)


As you can see, the sand on the pavers was moved by the rain, which left a shadow from where the watering can had been.   Neat, huh?

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly chilling in my garden


My butterfly bush works like gangbusters at attracting butterflies, so well named there!  The Internet says the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly likes pink, purple and red flowers, and I certainly have those in spades.


Oh Hot Wheels, you so crazy…

Hi, I’m Jamie, and if you didn’t already know, I’m a crotchety old man.   Hence the following complaint (Do your best to imagine a garbled old man voice while reading the text below):

In my day (the eighties) we had die-cast metal Hot Wheels and we liked it that way.   If your friend pissed you off, you’d just bean him in the head with a corvette or a station wagon and he’d know you meant business.  Now these. ..  These pathetic substitutes for Hot Wheels are not only poorly constructed,  but look at this ridiculous marketing tie in!  What kids want to play with the VW from Footloose or the convertible that was featured in Beverly Hills Cop?  Why are they selling toys now that should have marketed to me twenty-five years ago!?!
