Mexican Ice

Happy Hump Day, you lovable perverts, you.

I don’t have a whole lot for you today because I have been doing show prep* for the test show that Jay-Man and I will be doing on Blog Talk Radio at 11:30 A.M. (EDT) today.

I do have a brief report and pictures of an incident that took place at the Beer Mine on Monday afternoon.

If you know about the Beer Mine, you know that it is manned by Pizza Bill, Little Bill, myself, and our fearless owner, Drive-By Mikey.

But…

Others contribute to the success of the establishment as well.

Awhile back, I mentioned our Mexican ice delivery guy, Luis. Like clockwork, Luis shows up every Monday afternoon between three and four.

The last three weeks though, we have had a substitute driver. The sub said that Luis was temporarily working another route.

Drive-By Mikey and I however, thought perhaps that Luis went to Arizona on vacation, left his papers back in Ohio, and in spite of his citizenship, had been deported.

Fortunately, that was not the case. Luis showed up to our wind tunnel of alcoholic love on Monday afternoon and to welcome him back, I took some pictures…

This is the always affable Luis…


This the back of Luis’ truck when he backed in to load our ice machine…

Unbeknownst to Luis, this is what the back of Luis’ truck looked like when he drove off…

Ha…Luis’ next stop was ten minutes away from The Beer Mine. Needless to say, ten minutes and thirty seconds later, Mikey got a call from Luis.

It was filled with laughter, and expletives in both English and Spanish. And, the conversation included Luis saying to Mike:

“You guys suck. I wondered why the hell drivers were passing me, and fucking looking at me funny.”

Here’s to having Luis’ and his questionable looking papers being back at The Beer Mine. And to make up for the prank, I play this in his honor…



Happy Hump Day, All.

Cheers!!

*By show prep, I mean that I have been drinking quite a bit as I check out our Blog Talk Radio page saying to myself

“Hey this is neat.” “What’s this do?” “What will we talk about?” “Oh Dear God, what hath Jay wrought?”

Okay, so what time is that in AZ? Will I be able to listen? I've never listened to blog talk radio - I'm thinking there must just be a button somewhere, right? Just "click here" to listen to Matt and Jay? eh?

Matt-Man said...

Rat: Tomorrow is just a test show and no one will be able to listen, but when we are ready and have our time slot, I'll let you know, adorable one. Cheers Rat!!

Jay said...

"Frozen Illegals" ... Now that's funny! haha

And the show is at 11:30 your time. ;-)

Matt-Man said...

Jay: I know the time is 11:30, youuuuu. And yeah, I thought it was funny. Mikey said, if wasn't too long the sign should have also read, "Microwave for 30 seconds and they will work for for .23 an hour." Cheers Jay!!

Clay Perry said...

i have no idea why... but the sign on the truck is the funniest god damn thing i've seen in a month... thanks matt, i needed that!

Matt-Man said...

Clay: Yeah, I know ya do. And If we can pull it off, next week I'll be planting a sign on his truck that reads:

"I Brake For Choir Boys!!"

Cheers Clay!!

Phfrankie "Popsicle" Bondo said...

...I'll have one grape illegal-sicle, please...

Mike said...

Do you think Luis will be working on a payback?

Matt-Man said...

P-Man: I was going to write Spic-Sicles on Board, but I thought that was a bit much. Although, Luis, would have laughed. Cheers P-Man!!

Mike: I would be disappointed in him if he didn't. Chers Mike!!

David said...

That frozen illegals sign is effing hilarious.

Scott Oglesby said...

I have to admit that that is pretty damn good. Shit, I was laughing reading it!

Matt-Man said...

David: We were quite amused with oueselves. Cheers David!!

Scott: Ha...Just another day in paradise. Cheers Scott!!

Beth said...

You two should NOT be allowed to play together!

Matt-Man said...

Schmoop: Hee Hee...Mikey and I go together like salt and pepper, bacon and eggs, dumb and dumber. Cheers and Zoves Schmoop!!

Michele said...

You really should try to have more fun at work. ;-)

Blog Talk Radio? Is there a url for that?

Matt-Man said...

Michele: We typically have quite a bit of fun. And the show?

As soon as we are ready for public broadcast, all of the info on when and where to listen will be publicly, continuosly, and shamefully advertised. Cheers Michele!!

Evil Twin's Wife said...

I don't know how you're going to top that sign, but you should be brainstorming it now! ROFL!!

Matt-Man said...

Evil: Oh I've got more ready to go, but I think Luis will make it a practice to check his truck before he pulls out from now on. But, maybe we'll get lucky. Cheers ETW!!

Dana said...

*gigglesnort*

Oh my ... political correctness is *so* highly overrated!

Matt-Man said...

Dana: Damn right it is...And when people like and get know one and other, things like this are easily joked about and true bigotry and ignorance is eradicated. Cheers Dana!!

Raquel's World said...

OMG that is so funny! Poor Luis! I love the pics and yes, make sure you let everyone know how to find your show when it gets to that point. (like you needed me to tell you that)

Matt-Man said...

Raquel: Ha. It was amusing and trust me, when we're ready, people will get sick of hearing about it. Cheers Roc!!

MysteryChick said...

I know I can always count on you for a laugh. Thanks!

Matt-Man said...

Chick: I try my best because we can all use one at some point. Cheers Chick!!

Micky-T said...

How did the preemptive Tequila Rose show go?

Did you guys have any call ins? I forgot to. I was going to call you and see if I could slip in for a shot.

Matt-Man said...

Micky: We weren't taking calls. It was a test and all went well. Cheers Mick!!

Marilyn said...

I approve of the imaginative use of signage.

Matt-Man said...
