I'll have to remember the Pedialyte thing for my next hangover ;)

I hate that commercial.

SA said...

Mental note: Pedialyte is good for hangovers.

J-Money said...

AP & SA: Oh yeah. A Pedialyte (or the Target brand "Electrolyte Product") and an Excedrin will get you well on your way to feeling good enough to start drinking again. Seriously.

Surviving: I actually like the commercial. I do. But the problem? I liked the song first and can't enjoy the "Band of Fords" connotation as much.

RazZDoodle said...

holy crap that's the funniest thing I've read in a very long time.

You're from Slappytown, USA? I went to Slappytown North H.S.! Class of '90. GO BANANA SLUGS!

You got fired while you were sitting on a toilet?? Did I miss that story?

P.O.M. said...

Hi. Just found u thru Vanilla and some others.

I need to add to your hangover cures... for me it's exedrin, dr pepper (I NEVER drink soda otherwise) and a big fat Corn Dog with fries.

oh wow....just when i thought i could be proud of running 2.5 miles at a time, you go and post this. haha, just kiddin' (but not about me) congrats on the killer run. and for being able to consumer (2) snickers bars without throwing up, or smearing chocolate all over your face. and jason statham is one of my favorite men on this planet and everytime i see his visage i run the risk of driving off the road, running into a wall, or drooling onto the front of my tee-shirt. no doubt.

McD's is also great for hangovers....and I'm intrigued about this story of the canning. Pun intended.

Maxie said...

I will have to try this pedialyte :-)

J-Money said...

Felicia: They're pretty flippin' sweet.

Brookem: Thanks! Hope you'll come back. I like watermelon.

Razz: East Slappytown, represent!

Virginia: No, and since I'm still looking for a job, I have plenty of time to write it.

p.o.m.:Corn Dogs cure everything. I could lose my foot in a thresher and a corn dog would make me forget all about it.

Kayleigh: Yet another reason we would hang out ALL THE TIME.

Meghan: Oh yes. The Sausage Biscuit with a side of Shame. Always a favorite.

Maxie: Here's where I wish I sounded like the Men's Wearhouse guy when I said "I guarantee it."
