An Incident at Gulf Shores

A Michigan guy named Matt went with his buddies to Gulf Shores to check out those Alabama women and party. Mostly with beer. So they purchased a cooler and a bunch of cases of beer and went down to the shore.

Well, our Wolverine had a few; and incautiously mixed some rye with the beer, making Michigan-style boilermakers. He felt full of Dutch courage, so he approached a pretty brunette.

To emphasize his language, he approached her with a little show-and-tell. Yes, Matt pulled his equipment out and asked her what that was.

Her reply was, "That's a tee-hee."

Matt smiled, and thought about how innocent and easily embarrassed those Southern belles were. He told her, "Back in Michigan, girls there call it a prick."

Her response was, "That's a tee-hee. That's too small to be a prick!"

Mo Brooks and the Succession to the Senate

Yesterday one of the Senate seat aspirants for the seat vacated by Jeff Sessions, Rep. Mo Brooks (R -Huntsville) offered to withdraw if the other candidates would also. This would open the possibility of Jeff Sessions returning to the Senate.

Not likely. I can see Luther Strange sticking around, despite the odor of non-sanctity bestowed on his candidacy as a result of being appointed by former Governor Robert Bentley. (The Luv Guv.)

Anyway, where are the other possible viable candidates for the U.S. Senate nowadays?

Coke, Soda, or Pop?

I found this nice map that illustrates what people call carbonated beverages. In the South, we call it generic coke [Purple]. In the East and California, they're referred to as "soda." [Blue]

And in the Midwest they refer to them as "pop" [Yellow; Shudder]
