What’s Green, Whistles, And Hangs On a Wall?

I’ve got a joke for you that I heard the other day
“What’s green, whistles, and hangs on a wall?”
“No idea”
“A Salmon!”
“Salmon aren’t green!”
“So I painted it green.”
“They don’t hang on walls!”
“They do if you nail them up”
“Fish can’t whistle!”
“Yeah, I just put that in so it wouldn’t be too easy.”
This joke had me dying in its simplicity and power to surprise

Almost everyone likes surprises, well
Good one’s at least

But what do you do when something unexpected
Comes up and you’re left to deal with the aftermath
Of a Texas tornado sized problem

Well one thing that many people do is panic
Out of fear of the unknown

But what really is the unknown, but just a bunch of
Shit we just make up in our heads and run through
Enough times that we begin to believe it.

I’m gonna get all Metaphysical on your ass for a second
What is fear, but just a thought, an emotion that really
Doesn’t even exist
Your past?
Virtually irrelevant
Most people can’t even have the same dream twice
(and you have full control over that)
Let alone the fact that now you are a different person
Hopefully armed with insight from previous experiences

Your future?
Hasn’t even happened
So we have no real way of knowing the probability of
The aforementioned (Nice word) unknown

So what can we take away from this little lesson in Quantum Theory?

Fear is really just a really lame excuse for inaction

Think about it care bear
What’s the best way to get rid of your fear?
Face it head on right?
So why are you sitting there
Procrastinating and
Criticizing others
When really all you have to do for yourself


Dude, I get it
You drank the fearless Kool-Aid

That fearless shit that fit pros preach is bullshit!
We’re ALL scared out of damn minds that
Our fears are true,
But trust me once you stop and think about that shit for one second
You’ll see it is virtually impossible to connect the actual truth
With the lies that eventually become fears.

Fun Fact: Did you know that Mike Tyson in his hay day hired a “yes man” just to tell him he
Was awesome all the time?
Yeah he obviously didn’t like bad surprises either.

Revolutionary Resolution

Oh boy!!! Another fluff filled motivational message.

The New Year is gonna be great!

This is your year.

Sound familiar?


If you’re like me, you’re probably excited to call this year over.

I’m pretty sure Hollywood is wiping its collective brow in hopes

That we won’t see the grim reaper doing his happy dance

At such a heartbreaking pace (Debra Reynolds?)


So what are we supposed to be doing here?

It’s like every year we get all revved up on jet fuel

But peter out after two weeks

Like a fat kid chasing an ice cream truck.


Well the simple answer is stop trying the same approach that

CLEARLY isn’t working.
