Nothing like a good optical illusion...

How not to "Pimp" Your Ride...

How to "Pimp" Your Ride...

The cable company is making fun of me!

LaChania Govan said she got bounced around by her cable company (Comcast) when she called to complain. She made dozens of calls- no luck. But when she got her August bill from Comcast she had no trouble understanding she'd made somebody mad. It was addressed to "Bitch Dog."

"I was like you got to be freaking kidding me!" said Govan.

Govan said she talked to a supervisor and he offered her two months free service, which she turned down. Company officials went through the records and identified two people who were involved with the name change and fired them.

In another similar case,
Peoples Energy customer Jeffery Barnes started getting letters addressed to "Jeffery Scrotum Bag Barnes."

"I guess the earliest letter is dated in May and from then on up until now my name has been listed as Jeffery Scrotum Bag Barnes and I have no idea why." Barnes said he received an apologetic call from a company official. He also has contacted an attorney to determine if he can take legal action.

This seems to be a reoccurring problem throughout the country. I can’t help but wonder- when these people first receive their bills, they have to laugh/smile when they first read it. I mean you can’t even say out loud, “Jeffery Scrotum Bag Barnes” without laughing. Try it. Come on. Do it. See what I mean? How childish! I love it.

Dude, do you hear that beeping noise!?!

I'm all about practical jokes...this device produces a one-second electronic chirp about once every 3 minutes. Due to the chirp's duration, frequency, and sound characteristics, it's a very difficult, time-consuming, frustrating and maddening task to locate the unit. So basically if you want to drive someone mad- this is the device to buy. The first beep cycle is about 5 minutes, then every 3 minutes. It's $24.99, which is a little steep- but probably well worth it after you hear one of your friends describe how mad its driven them to not be able to find it.
