About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

Question of the Day

During this recent spate of lousy, freezing, snowy weather many cities in upstate New York have gotten frequent mention. Prominent among these is Syracuse.

I find many talking heads on TV pronounce it as Sarah-cuse. How do you get Sarah- out of something spelled Syra-? It should be pronounced Seer-a-cuse.

Why can't these guys pronounce Syracuse correctly? That's the question of the day.
