BobJokeTooMuch

It’s All About Me, Me, Me, Me, Me.  Who the heck is the Bob behind BobJokeTooMuch.com....edy and do you really want to know?  Anyway………

My name is Bob and I’ve been told I joke too much.  The naming of my website came from my trip to Nepal when after the first couple of days trekking to the Mt. Everest Base Camp our Sherpa Guide, Limbu, confided in my friend the following; “Bob is a nice guy but Bob Joke Too Much”.  Once he started to understand and/or tolerate my sarcasm (maybe 21 days in) we became good friends and supporters of his guide business.  So it all worked out but now my friend tends to remind me of that quote when I go too far with my satirical humor.

Anyway......I was born a poor black child of a sharecropper on the front porch of my home in the Mississippi Delta.  Not buying that?  OK, just a middle class, blue collar kid in an all-white, Irish Catholic neighborhood boarding the Southwest side of Chicago.  One of seven children raised by a normal Mom and Dad who obviously believed the Catholic Church recommendation of the Rhythm Method as an effective form of contraception.  My Wife, two boys and I live in Chicago.

Observing and experiencing life since 1963.  I have been extensively educated at Father Mulsoff Industrial School for Incorrigible Kid’s, Brother Duffin High School for Vulnerable Boys and The Institute for Applied Nonsense.  Note that even though the 1st two schools had known molesters as “teachers”, I was never once approached for molestation in spite of the fact that I was very susceptible, small, skinny and weak boy.  Due to current litigation against the Catholic Church for discrimination, that’s all I can say on the subject.

I have no qualifications for being a writer.  However, this will not stop me from publishing many of the yearly 17,000 thoughts that pop into my mind on the www.bobjoketoomuch.com website and anywhere else. I will cover topics including parenting, gun control, donkeys, idiots, politics, religion, racism and any other controversial subjects I find worthy in an attempt of provoking laughs, stimulating deep thinking and/or just pissing off the politically correct with my satirical prose.  My thoughts and opinions will appear on my website and all other social media outlets no matter how much a waste of time until I die.

Great News – Simone’s Times 2

Great News – Simone’s Times 2

It’s great to be a Simone in Rio!  Two of our Olympic athletes made history Thursday night in Rio.  Congratulations to both.  Even though most times I believe its better that we don’t cause separation by defining accomplishment based on race, religion or whatever, if it has a positive effect on those communities, I’m all for it.  Their inspirational stories follow.

Things Have Changed....For The Better?

June 6, 2016 is the official start of the BobJokeTooMuch stage of my life.  Even though I have been working on the site and self-educating (I'm a regular Abe Lincoln) myself over that last 8 months, today is the day that I hope starts the payoff for the work put into this endeavor.  

I post this under good news but I'm not so sure my wife will agree since now we don't have any income and are relying on a very small nest egg from my real estate years to get by.  Either way, it's on. I hope you enjoy the experience.

I leave you with one of my favorite quotes, "A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for."—J. A. Shedd.
