“I do not because normally when he has missed the cut, he seems to have come out and placed in the top 5 the following week.”

“No, I don’t. I don’t think he will finish in the top 5, but I don’t think Phil (Mickelson) will win.”

“The way he’s been golfing lately, there’s a good chance he might do that.”

Photo of Larry A. Franklin Sr.

“Yes, he will because of his failure to make the cut last week and all the pressure that’s on Mr. Woods.”

Now answer this please. Who Cares? Where is Earl Butz when you need him. (Former Secretary of Agriculture under Nixon, fired for telling the truth about people like Woods.)

Tiger being # 2 seems appropriate.

A big, fat, stinky, # 2.

Anyone watching Orlando Magic and Atlanta Hawks tonight? Even though Tiger is a Magic fan (and season ticket holder), I heard that the Hawks are trying to recruit him...at least Tiger knows how to score in Orlando, unlike the Hawks.

Seriously, I think the Merc is a cult. I knew this girl that worked there. They make you call your co-workers your Family. Jai guru deva, om, you freaks.

CW, I was gonna cave in and apply at the Merc. You have to dress appropriately for the job. So I didn't bathe for a couple of weeks. My hair is really crazy, like Slash in Guns n' Roses. I wore some cut off jean shorts, so short the pockets are hanging out of the bottom, no shirt, shoes, or underwear. I walked in with a lit cig in my mouth. This manager dude had this look of horror on his face. I thought he was admiring my package. Then he says "Sir, we cannot allow you in our establishment." I told him to just give me the damn application. So he tried to have these 2 pastey, vegan looking guys escort me out. Well, I escorted them both over the top of the salad bar. I got out of there before the cops showed up. I threw up in the parking lot from the overwhelming smell of patchouli.

apparently asbury has chosen to decline particpating any further in such enlightened discourse. My guess is he didn't care.

I agree with Bruno, except for "Do you support higher sales taxes to fund schools and social programs?" I dont' even know what that means. My favorite categories would be Bob Dylan, 70's Porn Stars, and Rock & Roll.

I sure did like The Style Council. Anybody remember them? Some of my favorites: "You're the Best Thing" "The Long Hot Summer" "My Ever Changing Moods" "Cafe Bleu" Man, if I could get those years back.......

I just tried my hand at farming. It took me 10 minutes to mow my back yard. Screw that. I have much respect for farmers, if you know who I mean. I think I'll go fire up the custom grill, the bong, and crack open a Mickey's Big Mouth.

Tiger got caught out on a golf course during a lightning storm. He held a one iron over his head. Why?

Speaking of cold pop tarts. How about hot flaming English muffin? Here is why you should never leave your toaster unattended, (which I didn't, but who thinks you can' step out for that couple of seconds to grab something or run to the bathroom while something's toasting?) English muffins. I buy the refrigerated long stack, long lasting kind (old preference) that are pre-split, but that's useless. If I want a nice straight edge,I grab one of my many ginsu type steak knives (that people sell all the time at garage sales for near nothing, don't know why, these are the most wonderful kitchen tools. You should have plenty so they are always at hand, not in the dishwasher. I have at least a dozen.) Of course, you cut not along their pre-split, but dead center, which can leave a hanging rim. This can turn black or stick out and blacken.

This wasn't even what happened today. Today, they hadn't cooked quite enough, typical. One small portion was starting to turn black, but that happens all the time. I'm sure I've cooked a few hundred of these. On the second go around, very shortly in, I looked over and flames were coming out the top. I pulled up the handles, the flames were coming from one side so I could grab the other and remove the muffin to find it 3 inches of the rim totally engulfed in full, campfire flames. I could have walked around the house setting it ablaze the flames were towering that high. I held it over the sink, blew it out with a few tries.(would have grabbed water if necessary, but didn't want that soggy burned smell in the house or trash.)

No tags of muffin had been sticking out towards the elements or anything, no really thin air bubble section, just regular muffin gone wrong along the rim and poof.

Worst part, now I'll be suspicious of my toaster and muffins forever. :( The things we take for granted.

Hey LJW, I note that lately your man-on-the-street questions have been either low brow inflammatory (birthers, atheist SCOTUS candidates) or inane, like today's. Who comes up with these questions? Did you get a new person recently. They used to be informative, locally topical or humorous, now they are typically none of the above. May I offer some assistance? How about, "Do you support higher sales taxes to fund schools and social programs?" Or maybe, "What was the worst summer vacation you ever took?"

I like watching Tiger play, he is an artist, but I could care less about his ranking and even less about his personal affairs.

If my name was Eldrick I too would change it. But I think in this case, "Tiger" as a choice was just a tad ironic. "Baker's Dozen" would have been better.

I'd rather eat really thin pancakes than listen to Judy Collins sing this early in the day. That sound pierced my soul and I went outside and hugged a tree...then threw up.

You know, LJWorld, asking a question about the British elections, the oil spill, the NYC bombing attempt, the floods in Nashville or, well, pretty much anything is far more interesting than a question about an adulterous golfer. I don't give a whiff whether Tiger is good at golf or not. If he never won another event or won all of them... doesn't matter. I get that you like to ask a light question now and then, but at least ask a funny or cute one. Athletes and entertainers are a big snore. "My opinion about this person I never met is:" Blech.

By the way, I keep seeing these commercials for Wayne and Larry's that say they have the coldest beer in town. Is it a beer popsicle, or just frozen beer in a cup? I hope they don't slam the beer on the counter and spill it all over you like Bob at Dynamite Saloon. He did that at Mass. St. Deli, too. "Have a cold Pale Ale!! NOW!!!" Maybe he should hire some new talent. Me, maybe? But I only drink regular Coors.

This irrelevant question should have been asked at Speedway Shell. I'll check back later to see if RI or Autie have steered things in a better direction.
