Oddball of a World vol.4 – On Odd Women

Women.

They’re horrible creatures who we men have to live with. They force us to put the toilet seat cover down, to aim properly, to read maps, to be on time, and to last with them for hours. Then they expect us to give them money for it, give them a house and car and jewels, and all this stupid cuddling crap.

But some other women settle for other things, like the following. Click on the titles to be magically transported to the main article.

WOMAN ARRESTED OVER BODY PARTS IN FRIDGE

Tired of your husband? Dispute over the house? Easy solution: If he wants the house, he can keep it. Chop him into 11 pieces and put him in the fridge, then sell the house. You kept the money and he kept the house. Brilliant!

EVEN IN DEATH WE WON’T PART

So you don’t really hate your husband, you love him too deeply. Solution? After he dies, keep the body with you at home. For years. Don’t forget to occasionally remove the worms attempting to eat him.

DON’T ONLY KEEP DEAD HUSBANDS – KEEP YOUR FAMILY TOO

So your family memebers also eventually die off. You can’t possibly arrange funerals all the time right? It is financially difficult plus not keeping them at home makes you feel alone in the world. But, hey, Egyptians keep the dead intact right? So why not pull it off at your home too. Mummify and keep the corpses. Happy family!


OMG A THIEF!!

Or is it? Apparently this woman needs glasses, as she thought that a stuffed teddy bear in the car is actually a thief, who, strangely, remained still until police arrived.

OMG A THIEF 2!!!

Not all women are idiots when it comes to thieves, like this grandma. A guy wants to steal her car – being an old woman of course – but he is taken by surprise as she karate’s him into the car and locks him inside until the police come.

YOU WANT A PIECE OF ME?

Husbands are annoying creatures. Ex-husbands are even more annoying! Seriously they get on everyone’s nerves. Time to teach him a lesson: Set his most valuable body part on fire. That should do it!

WOMEN AND MEN ARE EQUAL

For men and women to be equal, the same rule must apply to both, right? So we find it strange when this woman, who wants to enroll herself in one of those bull marathons, orders that the bulls be replaced by cows.

Now to be fair, next issue will be about Odd Men :P

Not For Your Brains

SO THIS IS MY 100th BULBUS!
[and I don't know why it is a big deal]

For the whole of the weekend I tried to create different things for my 100th post. And I really went out there! First off, I was doing a flash animation where little bulbi fell from the sky and filled up “containers” that spelled “100″, and then at the end, Moogle would drop on them and cause a mess. I then scratched the idea while working on it because it turned up to be time consuming and it wasn’t shaping up to what I have envisioned.

Next up, I thought of doing a comic myself. I mean, I HAVE done it before. I thought first I’d draw it on paper, then scan it and convert it to vectors and continue from there. But I don’t have a scanner, but I do have a cam. So I did that but it turned out to be hideous and not up to what I had imagined either. The comic was supposed to display a big bulbus being worshiped by little bulbi. In the first pane, the big bulbus will be on, in the next pane it will be off, with the little bulbi saying “awwwwwwwwww”. Then it turns on again, and they say “aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!”, and then it turns off. In the last pane it shows Moogle trying valiantly to turn on the power supply to the Xbox cable.

But then while I was reading some comics I have for further inspiration, I came across the above image, and I thought, PERFECT!

Although I promised not to bore you with stats, I thought it will be interesting to know that the major keywords that lead to my blog are:

300 the movie
die hard 4.0 operating system (seriously?)
masturbate with me (no comment)
sex with boss in dubai (fascinating)
i forgot to add olive oil on my pasta for 15 minutes help
drink my cum bitch from jar (Allahumma enni sa2em)

Moogle Thoughts Issue #2 – On Traffic, Hospitals, Ravioli and China

Moogle: Kupo, the traffic is horrible! OMG is that a car on fire!?
KJ: Yup, it is.
Moogle: You are JOKING! You know what that means?!
KJ: People are actually burning while I have to sit here with you.
Moogle: That’s a terrible thing to say!
KJ: Would you like me to set you on fire instead?
Moogle: You’re horrible.
KJ: I am just hungry.


Moogle: I want Nescafe.
KJ: We are in a HOSPITAL. If I get Nescafe you are going to spill it and ruin the floor.
Moogle: But kupo there are TEENS over there hanging out by the Nescafe machine.
KJ: You noticed too? Of all places to hang out in, they choose a hospital.
Moogle: So what will you do while you wait for your sister?
KJ: Nothing. Please please don’t tell me you have something in mind.
Moogle: Well I was thinking, since your abilities to score with women is below Black Sea level, you’d want to befriend people here.
KJ: Nurses from a [specific region I won't type to not cause offence]? You must be kidding.
Moogle: No no not the nurses. See, there are a lot of women here who must have come with their husbands.
KJ: And?

KJ: THEY ARE TWICE MY GRANDMOTHER’S AGE!
Moogle: But there are two I saw who are young.
KJ: Yeah I saw them.
Moogle: I am definitie it will work. Kupo, the hospital as their SECRET STRONGHOLD. Women COME here to get picked up by caring soon-to-be husbands and fathers! It is maternal instinct.
KJ: You want to know what’s my instinct towards this now?
Moogle: Will I like it?
KJ: No.


Moogle: The ravioli looks amaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing! You are impressive!
KJ: Indeed I am. Look at the alfredo sauce! It looks brilliant.
Moogle: Let your sis taste it lest you want to break your fast!
KJ: Yes yes.
Moogle: Oh, you know what would be EVIL.

Moogle: Hey don’t blame it on me! I didn’t tell you it was a great idea, just evil!
KJ: No XBOX for you tonight.
Moogle: You know you’re bluffing.
KJ: I know.


Moogle: Do you still like Medusa?
KJ: The woman with the ridiculous hair?
Moogle: The one.
KJ: No. You’re disgusting she is married with kids!
Moogle: But kupo, see, you only need to show her you are better than her husband.
KJ: And?
Moogle: And then she’d divorce him, sell her kids to him and she will be all yours!
KJ: You don’t SELL kids!
Moogle: In China they do!
KJ: Oh, so you actually have HEARD of China
Moogle: Come on I am not THAT ignorant!
KJ: So what’s China known for?
Moogle: Chi Wa Wa

KJ: That thing isn’t CHINESE you stupid furball!
Moogle: The one I know is.
KJ: I am NOT having this conversation.

Oddball of a World vol.3

Good Monday!

Who hates Mondays? We all do. Actually Sundays in this part of the world. But in any case, here is some absurd news that made headlines to cheer you up.

The Gods Have Accepted Your Sacrifice

So you own an airline company and one of your planes has always been jinxed, troubled beyond trouble and might get into the Wikipedia as one of those (if not the most) malfunctional pieces of equipment ever created by man. Yet you’d lose business if it doesn’t fly, and if it does fly you’d lose people. And you don’t have the money to fix it. What a pickle! So what do you do? Simple: Sacrifice two goats to please the sky gods and everything will be fine. Although you might be laughing now, it actually worked. Talk about supernatural powers of goats!

So We Fixed the Plane, Why the DELAY?

Assuming you have a proper plane, you get another problem on your hands: The passengers. No no, not those who arrive last minute, but the ones who want to shuffle seats. I mean, everyone does that, right? Well it appears that the person in question had too many relative females who are seated next to unknown men. Gee, and I thought on a plane everyone knew the other! Three hours later the guy and his infinite number of female relatives got off the plane and all the other passengers missed their connecting flights.

Hello? Paris?

To many people this is a curse, but to one particular person it was amusing. They inherited Paris Hilton’s number. Swell.

What People Do To Avoid Paying Tax

So tax is a big thing apparantly. Here in the Middle East we don’t worry about such things of course, since everything is overpriced by default anyway. However this Japanese woman thought of a brilliant idea: Use your relative’s names so that the government thinks your income is negligible and avoid tax. Thankfully her fine was only a margin of what she made out of her 60-year plot, which is amusing in and of itself.


What People Do To Avoid Paying Retail

It is a simple thing, really, when you don’t want to pay for an item. You just shoplift it, right? Experienced shoplifters (read: Brits) can live for years without any sort of income but live a high-end life with LCD HDTVs, a full supply of groceries and probably even borrowed children. What these shoplifter should teach the new generation is that, when you steal, please don’t go back to the store and ask for an exchange.

I Am Bored. Let’s Save A Shark!

You’re a bored lifeguard. You hear a commotion. Certainly, there must be a problem. Someone drowning. You run to the location and you see people frantically trying to escape a shark. What do you do? Save the shark!
