The Washington Foreskins


I think all sports fans will get a kick out of this letter written to the Chicago Tribune.... Enjoy!


No matter which side you are on in the matter of renaming the Washington Redskins, this is funny. This guy is hilarious!

Here is an e-mail sent to Clarence Page of the Chicago Tribune after an article he published concerning a name change for the Washington Redskins.

 
Dear Mr. Page: I agree with our Native American population. I am highly jilted by the racially charged name of the Washington Redskins. One might argue that to name a professional football team after Native Americans would exalt them as fine warriors, but nay, nay. We must be careful not to offend, and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward.

Let's ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns.

The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of militant Blacks from the 60's alive. Gone. It's offensive to us white folk.

The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team named for the Confederacy? No! There is no room for any reference to that tragic war that cost this country so many young men's lives.

I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion among our sports team names. Totally inappropriate to have the New Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres.

Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and pillaged. We are talking about the horrible Oakland Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Pirates!

Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to our children. The San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible fighting or even spending habits. Wrong message to our children.

The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity, a growing childhood epidemic. Wrong message to our children. The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates. Wrong message to our children.

The Milwaukee Brewers. Well that goes without saying. Wrong message to our children.

So, there you go. We need to support any legislation that comes out to rectify this travesty, because the government will likely become involved with this issue, as they should. Just the kind of thing the do-nothing Congress loves.

As a diehard Oregon State fan, my wife and I, with all of this in mind, suggest it might also make some sense to change the name of the Oregon State women's athletic teams to something other than "the Beavers" (especially when they play Southern California). Do we really want the Trojans sticking it to the Beavers???

I always love your articles and I generally agree with them. As for the Redskins name I would suggest they change the name to the "Foreskins" to better represent their community, paying tribute to the dick heads in Washington DC.

When it is acceptable to use the "F" word, from                                                                        ...

President Trump met with the NATO allies, but was put off by some of the comments about him that occurred when his back was turned...

And one last bit of news just in, the Dallas Cowboys, on a losing streak these days, have signed

Colin Kaepernick after his workout last month...

and in looking back at  Thanksgiving grocery sales, many stores were stuck with their Thanksgiving cakes as customers thought that they looked like shit...literally...or dicks...

I am sure that this will make all the readers very sad...

In Business News, one of the most popular items for Christmas is the Jeffery Epstein ornament...

And speaking of marriage again...

And we all know that...

Some of the judicial rulings that are forcing Trump allies to testify is causing a blow up on

Pennsylvania Avenue...

Do you know the answer to this one?...

                      December  10, 2019

And despite Trump clamoring that he has done nothing wrong, there is still a little problem with something called...

​falling back on his "MINT" family for support...

I don't believe in astrology either...

Might have heard this before...

A man goes to a pharmacy and asks to talk to a male pharmacist

The woman behind the counter replies that she is the pharmacist, that she and her sister own the drugstore, and that there are no males employed there. “But surely I can help you,” she says.

“This is embarrassing for me, but I have a permanent erection that causes me a lot of pain and severe embarrassment. I was wondering what you could give me for it?”

“Just a minute, I’ll go talk to my sister.” When she returns, she says, “The best we can offer is one-third-ownership in the store and five thousand a month in living expenses.”

While their QB, Mitch Trubisky is playing better, he still is a liability...

It seems like despite a good economy, his plans to eliminate the deficit have gone in reverse...

Marriage...

A thief entered a house mid-afternoon. He tied up the woman and at knife-point asked the man to hand over the jewelry and money.


The man started sobbing and said,  “You can take anything you want. 
You can kill me. But please untie the rope and free her.”


Thief: “You must really love your wife!”


Man: “No, but she will be home shortly”.

There is this old couple who could no longer care for themselves so they join an assisted living center

At first everything is going fine as they transition to the new lifestyle. When they first had joined the center they were seen as a loving couple as he had his hand on her thigh and she had her hand on his but over time they seemed to drift apart and about a year later he no longer even sat with her but was instead spending time sitting with another woman. After days of not talking to each other and seeing him now sitting day after day with his hand on the woman's lap and hers on his, she just couldn't just stand there and not address her husband at the unfairness of it all. She finally gathered up the nerve to approach them.

"I sat next to you for years and we did the same exact thing with your hand on my lap and mine on yours and now you are doing the same thing with that woman that you used to do with me. What does she have that I don't have?" she asked.

"Simple dear," he replied

"Parkinson's!"

So with the News covered, the coveted lead off spot goes to a guy who since retirement has really stepped up sending me good jokes, I am talking about                                                                                         ...

This is a great joke that you might have heard before...

Whats it like to be married?

My son wanted to know what it's like to be married.

I told him to leave me alone and when he did I asked him why he was ignoring me.

Four  men waited at the men’s tee while four women were hitting in front of them, taking their time.


When the final lady was ready to hit her ball, she hacked it 10 feet. Then she went over and missed it completely. Then she hacked it another ten feet and finally hacked it another five feet.


She looked up at the patiently waiting men and trying to be cool about her bad game said, “I guess all those fucking lessons I took over the winter didn’t help.”


One of the men immediately responded, “Well, there you have it. You should have taken golf lessons instead!”

and they view him as the...

First of all, best wishes for a speedy recovery to Billy Bong who is undergoing treatments for a 

blood disorder. The prognosis is good, and hopefully he will be back in top shape for the start of golf season and his planned retirement in April, 2020. He again demonstrates the reason that you should not put off doing the things you want to. Shit will happen to all of us, so go for the gusto while you can. We are all pulling for you Billy, and we know that you will join us for Vegas 28 in the fall.


The Czar of The Cigar has ended his shiva for father in law, Joe. And he is off to his Florida condo this week. Wish him a safe drive and lots of fun in the sun for the next 3 or 4 months.


Chivalrous Ken's wife had a bit of a scare at home requiring a trip to the ER, but after a few days

of observation, she is back on track for more treatment. Sure hope she responds and can get that

bone marrow transplant to be brought back to good health.
