Raoul’s Two Cents: April 22, 2022

Silly People

It’s hard to believe there are a lot of silly people in America. You see them everyday.

  • Silly people are slaves to their little masters.
  • Silly people actually volunteer to have a master.
  • Many actually spend big bucks to acquire their masters.
  • Silly people pick up their master’s hair, clean their mess and feed them gourmet dishes.
  • When the masters come beside their slave, silly people are trained to give massages.
  • Who dutifully take their masters out in the morning and at night? Silly people, that’s who.
  • When silly people go on vacation they do everything they can to take their masters along with them so they can parade their silliness to the world. And if that isn’t possible, they have to find baby sitters or worse — book their masters in an expensive hotel.
  • Silly people have evolved up the food chain and learned to walk upright with 2 legs yet they are willingly subservient to their four legged masters.
  • Silly people can talk — they say things like “sit, down, wait, beg, roll over.” In contrast, their masters have a very limited vocabulary; they bark, grunt, howl and growl.

It’s crazy why silly people want to have a master! They’re expensive to maintain. They waste your valuable time and drain your savings especially when they get sick.

We have 3 cats and 2 dogs in our home and those animals shed lots and lots of hair. And the hair (especially the soft cottony ones) are so light they go airborne like the Rono virus. Guess who vacuums the dander? My daughter who brought in the 3 cats? No way! My wife who adopted the 2 corgi dogs? Never! It’s poor, forsaken, forgotten, unlucky me.

Our house used to be immaculately clean. Now there are scratches on the wall, on the chairs, the sofa, the floor, the entertainment center, etc. Cat toys, dog toys, litter pellets, etc. have turned our abode into a war zone.

Are you a silly person? I never wanted to be a silly person —- but I guess I am now. Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?

TGIF people!


Hey, we went to a huge Corgi Beach Day 2 weeks ago where 1,500 corgis had a huge party.

FUNNY: A cute video of animals and their food.

SERIOUS STUFF: Tom L. of Pasadena, shared this troubling video about the CCP’s plan to rule the world.
It’s pretty long. Do you agree with its analysis?

    Hello bro,
    These dogs have the life! A lot of work and expensive, but they are such wonderful companions and so very entertaining.
    Thank you for the TGIF and enjoy the weekend!

    Hey Raoul!

    Yeah sometimes I feel that way about Bella, my master. We have to worry what to do with her when we go out for many hours. Like last night, Albert and I watched a movie (Father Stu…really good) and we thought it might rain. Do we keep her inside and allow her to jump on the furniture when we’re not around and leave her hair everywhere? Or do we keep her outside and get her all wet because it might rain?

    Yes we too are silly people.

    I knew you were talking about pets in the first sentence. I feed Buddy before I do anything else and tell him many times a day how much I love him. He gives me all the unconditional love I need..have a great weekend.
