"Iron Man" - Ozzy Osbourne

We have a winner.

Kurt @ Becoming An Ironman.

Which.
of course........made me think of the above mentioned song.

So I may have a thing for dirt-head music Ozzy Osbourne.

Email me your address Kurt! [queenofjean [at] gmail [dot] com ]

I'll get this box of goodies out to you!

And

now for the mini-article I read in "sport illustrated".

I. know. I. am. sooooo. grown. up.

But this was hilarious [to the Pita & I].  We were crying we were laughing so hard.


HEADLINE:

"Horse herpes outbreak forces rodeo queens to ride stick ponies."

Sayeth one aspiring teen queen:

"With a stick horse, it's a lot different because you have to do all the work, and I think it's going to be a lot more tiring."

May it be the only time a herpes outbreak darkens your door, brave rodeo queen.

Happy Monday!

Evolving Through Running said...

There are so many inappropriate comments that could be made about that headline that it's almost too easy. I'll simply bite my tongue and drop a single tear in my beer for the plight of our poor rodeo queens.

Laurie said...

Absolutely hilarious.

bobbi said...

LB said...

the question is....how did the horses get herpes....from the teen queens perhaps????

Emz said...

Yes, riding as stick is not easy work. That's what the rodeo queen's mama told me.

I had to re-read that to get it right. First of all I didn't realise it was the horse that had herpes.

Jim ... 50after40 said...

My kids call Ozzy type music "ButtRock". I don't know if that's an original phrase, but it cracks me up!

The comments for these are almost as easy... ahh.. I can;t bring myself to say it... needless to say it involves photos and a politician and how the puns write themselves. Thanks for adding a bit of comedy to an already awesome day (engagement photo session at a winery).
