The Jewish Dog


    I went to my first Golf Tournament (a fund raising event for the Gary Center) last Monday. No. I didn't play. I brought my art materials and I drew caricatures. Food and drinks poured as if in a cruise. Met a different set of people there --- many were the Rich and Famous.

    I overheard a man with a loud voice and a strong Hispanic accent. He was sharing how intelligent horses really are and he described his favorite horse (I think its name was "Affirmed") who was smart, composed and gentle. But when he heard the starting gunshot, he was off in a flash. He also talked about the many broken bones he received from accidents. When I turned around it was the winningest jockey in the world --- a dimunitive character named Laffit Pincay, Jr. Like golf, horse racing is alien to me but (earlier) the people around me said he was somebody important. Although he was 2 tables away from me, I could see his face clearly so I proceeded to make a caricature of him riding a rocking horse. When I gave it to him he said "Ken you make my nose a leetel beeger?" I hope he was not offended. I don't think so. Another elderly gentleman was smiling at me and so I asked if he wanted his picture done. It turned out to be Big Al, the founder of the Gary Center.

    These are important people but none of them had the airs you would normally expect from celebrities. Quite a contrast from several "wannabe's" I know who need to flaunt their cars, their jewelry, their houses to create an image of success. When people lack in character and substance, they try to make up for it in appearance. When will they learn that it's lonely at the top and you dress down to be just like the rest of us?

The Jewish Dog
Contributed by Mike of New York
(Even if I don't know any Jewish words, I still got the joke --- Raoul)

Morty visits Dr. Saul, the veterinarian, and says, "My dog has a problem."

Dr. Saul says, "So, tell me about the dog and the problem."

"It's a Jewish dog. His name is Seth and he can talk," says Morty.

"He can talk?!" the doubting doctor asks.

"Watch this!" Morty points to the dog and commands: " Seth, Fetch!"

Seth the dog, begins to walk toward the door, then turns around and says:

"So why are you talking to me like that? You always order me around like I'm nothing.
And you only call me when you want something. And then you make me sleep on the floor, with my arthritis. You give me this fahkahkta food with all the salt and fat, and you tell me it's a special diet. It tastes like dreck! YOU should eat it yourself! And do you ever take me for a decent walk?
NO, it's out of the house, a short pish, and right back home. Maybe if I could stretch out a little, the sciatica wouldn't kill me so much!
I should roll over and play dead for real for all you care!"

Dr. Saul is amazed, "This is remarkable! So, what's the problem?"
Morty says, "He has a hearing problem! I said 'Fetch,' not 'Kvetch."

YouTube Ads of the Decade
Contributed by Peter Paul of S. Pasadena

With 140 million hits, Turkish Airlines' "Kobe vs. Messi: The Selfie Shootout" is supposed to be the most popular YouTube ad of the decade. I'm surprised. But it's hard to argue with numbers. My favorite was the "Little Darth Vader" and the "Van Damme Split." My least was the "Like a Girl" ad. What about you?

Evolving Logos

Contributed by Peter Paul of S. Pasadena
evolving logo

Did you know that I'm a graphic designer and that I designed the 42nd GRAMMY Awards millenium logo that was broadcast all over the world? Yup! That's my claim to fame. If you're like me, you'll enjoy this page showing the evolution of 12 famous brands.
One of my pet peeves are clients who insist on putting too many symbolism in a logo. For me, the simpler the logo, the more memorable and the better the brand. Learn from the trend.

Ever since the "fall" man has detached himself from God. This video is a good reminder that it isn't up to God ... but up to us to rekindle that relationship.

This is not a video but an article. If you live in a cultural melting pot like Los Angeles it's important to understand our differences.

TGIF people!


I use your jokes at the convalescent ministry. They get a kick out of them.

Glad to see you are enjoying what you do. You go deeper than just hobnobbing with the rich and famous. You go deeper into the person, just like a good artist should.

Hi bro! Thank you for the TGIF. I enjoyed the evolving logos.

Have a good weekend.
