Flo the Progressive Girl & Josephine the Plumber – Related?

BS or NOTTwo all time most popular women on commercials could be related?

Everyone knows Flo the Progressive Girl. She is cute, popular, and the most successful girl on a TV commercial.

Do you remember Josephine the Plunber? She was the sweet lady on the Comet Clenser commercial, during the 1960’s and early 1970’s. She is still alive and kicking at the age of 91.

These two successful and beloved characters have something in common. Besides being the two most popular ladies on TV commercials, suppose I told you that they have something else in common.

Flo the Progressive Girl - Josephine the Plumber

Flo is is a comically sincere, post-modern Josephine the Plumber who sincerely wants to help people solve a problem. When Josephine was popular, Flo admired her so, and wanted to follow in her footsteps. This is exactly what she is doing now, and has been doing for the last 9 years.

Why would Flo admire Josephine so much and want to follow in her footsteps? Simple. Josephine is her grandmother.

What if you get held up with no cash? No problem! Some thieves now take credit cards

credit-thiefThe other day, I went to the Dollar Tree to buy a whole bunch of stuff, but ended up buying 4 things.

I didn’t have any cash, so I said to the cashier, “I feel funny using my debit card for such a small purchase. Is it all right?” She said, “That’s fine, don’t worry about it.”

Held up with no cash – You’re screwed

Then I said to her, “I never carry cash. I always use my debit card. If I am ever held up by a robber, I would be in big trouble.”

Suddenly, I was in a crazy, and joking mood, so I continued by saying, “Of course, it is my understanding that most thieves today will take plastic. They will take a debit or a credit card, and give you time to go to the teller machine and get the money. It wouldn’t surprise me if, in the very near future, thieves will tell you to stick ’em up, and then allow you time to go to the bank, and take out a loan to finance the robbery.”

BS or NOTThieves may ask for a credit reference in the future

Who knows? By this time next year, thieves may run credit checks on people they’re trying to rob. If their credit is approved, they’ll say, “Stick ’em up.” If their credit is declined, they’ll leave and go on to their next customer. Most likely, a thief wouldn’t kill you if your credit is declined. Most thieves are not necessarily killers. They just want your money. However, if you’re ever in this situation, don’t assume this is true. Get the hell out of there, as far away as you can, and as fast as you can.

I wouldn’t be surprised if many thieves don’t even load their gun on a job. And I’d almost bet the farm that he’s not going to report anyone’s bad credit to TransUnion, Experian or Equifax.

Armed robbery is against the law. But to thieves, it’s a business. They too want to stay in the black, and they’re also being hit by the economic crunch.

How to Make Money without Working

Make Money: I watched this video on YouTube a few minutes ago and just had to share it. It’s the most hilarious video I’ve ever seen.

I have to hand it to this guy. He’s got his shit together. I have to say that this is the most entertaining video I’ve ever watched on YouTube. Here’s the comment I wrote:


By the way, my recommendation is, DON”T TRY THIS. Even if it works, you may not be around to spend the money. Inmates are not allowed to have cash.

Is it dangerous to have sex with your cousin?

sex with your cousinEmail from Merjeo reader:

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, my cousin is 31, I’m 18, and she really likes me a lot.

I want to have sex with her so bad, I can hardly stand it. Yesterday we were kissing. Then I stopped her because I felt it wasn’t the right thing to do. I’ve heard that our children might have Down Syndrome or something like that if I do anything with her. Is this BS or NOT?

I do like her, but I can’t have a family because of that. I won’t put my penis anywhere near her body.

Merjeo’s response:

Actually, your kids will grow up with a superior IQ. This also happens when pregnant women are on steroids. There’s only one side effect. The kids are psychotic. And speaking of psychotic, have you checked your marbles lately?

You’re saying you want to raise a family with your cousin. You have to be out of your mind. I think either your parents are cousins, or, your mother was on steroids when she was pregnant with you.

I’m sorry to break it to you Pal, but your cousin is toying with you, laughing and enjoying every minute of it. If you have sex with her, it would be nothing more than a training session. In other words, she’ll give you sex lessons.

Stop dreaming!

Sometimes I think I’m seeing things, even with my eyes closed

seeing thingsSeeing things that are not really there, or are they?

Many times, when I’m lying down and relaxing with my eyes closed, I have the strangest experiences. I’m actually seeing things. This is not BS.

I see ugly faces. If you’re reading this, you may think I’m crazy. But I’m telling you the truth. The ugly faces I see are similar to the image on the left. The only thing that’s certain is, I’ve never seen the same face twice.

At first, I thought demons were invading me, Then, I said, “Hell, I didn’t ask them to come here.

Several years ago, when I was attending graduate school in New Orleans, someone I met at school told me that he prayed a lot. Every time he prayed, he said, he saw faces that were so ugly that it scared him to death. This guy scared me to death because I thought he was nuts. Now, the same thing is happening to me.

Am I nuts? Hell no, but I know what I see. Is this BS or NOT? You don’t have to decide. I’ll decide. It’s not because, again, I know what I see. Is this Deja Vu?


How to get good ideas – This will work and it never fails

how-to-get-good-ideasOne of the hardest things to do is come up with good ideas. You have probably told yourself many times, “If I can come up with one good idea, I’d be set for life.” Now, there is a way.

Follow these 3 steps

First, fill a glass with water to the brim. Don’t use a coffee cup, or Styrofoam cup. The method won’t work unless you use a glass.

Second, before you go to bed, hold the glass with both hands, close your eyes and drink half the water. While drinking, think of the ideas you’re trying to come up with. After drinking the water, don’t say another word. Place the half filled glass on the night table, and go to bed.

Third, if you wake up with a good idea, drink the rest of the water normally. If you don’t wake up with a good idea, hold the glass with both hands, close your eyes and drink the rest of the water. Again, while drinking, think of the ideas you’re looking for. Within an hour or two, your mind will be flooded with good ideas.

Is this BS or NOT? NO, IT IS NOT!

Why do some colors represent both GOOD and BAD? Strange!

Colors can be crazy. A color represent something both bad and good. Let’s look at three colors: RED, WHITE  and BLACK. (I highlighted the colors just in case you are color blind.)


BAD: Red is the color that means a business is losing money Your Business is In the RED.

GOOD: Red is the color of love. It represents sex. If your girlfriend is wearing red, chances are, she’s horny.


BAD: A beginner in Karate wears a white belt. This means, if he gets into a fight, he will get his ass whipped. If a woman double crosses you, you may have to remind her that she is not so lily white. And of course, we must not forget about some people who tell those little white lies.

GOOD: In the movies, the good guys wear the white hats. A bride wears white to signify that she is pure. I don’t know if this is good or bad.


BAD: On the other hand, the bad guys in the movies wear the black hats. If someone does not want you in their fraternity, lodge or club, they will blackball you. One of the most vicious villains ever, Dracula, wore black.

GOOD: Black is the symbol of authority, power, mastery and skill. A guy who has mastered the art of Karate wears a black belt. If he gets into a fight, the other guy will get his ass whipped. Have you ever been to a black tie affair. This is real classy – for the rich, famous and well-to-do. Dracula may have been a villain, but priests are good guys. Priests wear black to signify their humility, obedience and total surrender. Remember, Real Men Wear Black. Finally, if you are the owner of a business, you will definitely want to operate in the black.

Let’s do one more color.


BAD: Pink is a very feminine color, which is good. If a man wears pink, others might think he is gay, which is bad.

GOOD: Pink can represent feeling good. You’re in the Pink. It’s also the color that reminds everyone that there must be a cure for breast cancer.

Jack the Ripper – not a real person but part of Britain’s Industrial Revolution

BS or NOTWho was Jack the Ripper?

A better answer is, “What was Jack the Ripper

As you know, from legend, the Ripper was never caught. There’s no way he could have been caught, simply because, Jack the Ripper was not any one person.

The Industrial Revolution in the United States was between 1820 and 1840. Great Britain was behind time, and didn’t begin their Industrial Revolution until the late 1880’s. It was in the fall of 1888 when a Serial Killer, known as Jack the Ripper terrorized the streets of London.

What led the to the beginning of the project known as Operation Jack the Ripper?

jack-the-ripperOperation Jack the Ripper – Business, not Personal

Great Britain’s economy was suffering tremendously during the late 1880’s. A major British Corporation decided to do something to help the economy.

As a result, the Corporation created Operation Jack the Ripper. The purpose was to rid Great Britain of prostitution, and bring in more legitimate, and profitable business. A team of expert hit men came together and did what they felt needed to be done to get rid of prostitution and stabilize the economy, particularly in London.

The team consisted of twelve people. No one knows the gender. One or more of them could have been female. There were eleven murders credited to the Ripper. However, each victim was killed by a different hit man (or woman, if this is the case). This means, one of the members of the team didn’t have to kill anyone.

Lucky him, or her!

This is why the Ripper was never caught. He was not a real person. Jack the Ripper was the work of a Corporation.

The Original Mr Clean – Former Olympic Athlete?

BS or NOTWhere did Proctor & Gamble find the man who is Mr Clean?

There have been many stories about the origin of the lovable character, Mr Clean. Now that his commercials are making a comeback, there is a lot of curiosity about where the body builder came from.

Although no one knows exactly where, there is speculation that the character was originally a Russian weightlifter. He was supposed to be the gold medal hopeful for the Soviet Union in the 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne, Australia. This was 2 years before the Mr Clean we all know came out, which was in 1958. Unfortunately, an injury prevented him from competing.

The man who became the physical appearance of Mr Clean worked in an insane asylum in the Soviet Union. He was signed to be the face and body of Mr Clean, simply because he looked so muscular wearing white.

While President Clinton was with women, where was Hillary?

BS or NOTHow was Hillary amusing herself during Bill’s affairs?

We all know about the extracurricular activities of Bill Clinton, when he was President Clinton. But at the time, Hillary seemed to take it all with a grain of salt. Naturally, there was a reason. Perhaps Hillary was doing the exact same thing, literally.

I’ve always wondered about the sexual preference of the then, First Lady, and now, Presidential Candidate. I never really considered the possibility that she is strictly lesbian. However, the thought that she could go both ways has often crossed my mind. It’s funny how she didn’t show very much emotion, knowing that her husband was fooling around.
