Hellllllooooo Scranton!

The great town of Scranton has been in the news lately. Joe Biden, The Office, Me. For some reason the "news" stations think Scranton is a critical city in the upcoming election. I guess they have never been here because the only thing people care about are .35 wings. Here are some links about our great city.

A lot of people are talking about the SNL skit a few weeks ago when Scranton was hilariously blasted. After the touch me commercial, skip to the the 5:45 mark, priceless.
The Wicked Wrister

But wait... some people do like us Wall Street Journal

and finally... please remove your caps and stand. Let's all welcome Joseph to the writing staff of TIGO. He will receive the same pay and benefits as the rest of us. Joe is a former Scrantonian who moved to the 'Burgh a few years ago. The last time I was at his house he made me a cheesesteak with cole slaw and french fries on top. Dude, get back to Scranton! Anyway, Joe knows his sports, music and much more than me so I welcome him. If anything this blog will only get better. Here is his high school graduation picture.

I used to think Scranton was a fictional town brought to life from the vivid imagination of an NBC writer. I soon discovered the town from "The Office" was all too real. You may only have .35 wings to look forward to, but you'll always have Dwight's B&B.

Thanks for the warm welcome laclips. As soon as I figure how to "blog" I'll be posting frequently. So, by way of an introduction, allow me to tell a joke:

Knock Knock.

Who's there?

September 11th.

September 11th who?

You said you'd never forget!
