Have You Hugged Your Cat Today?

Today may seem like just another ordinary day, but it’s not. Today is National Hug Your Cat Day. Seriously, I looked it up to see if it’s legit and it is, but I can’t help wondering. Do the cats know about this? I don’t have a cat (my husband is fiercely allergic) so I don’t know much about them, but it seems to me cats generally are not the hugging types. I suppose that’s why cat people need an official holiday on which to force their pets to hug them.

The world is divided into two categories of people: cat people and dog people. That’s not to say if you like cats you can’t like dogs and vice-versa, but people typically fall into one camp or the other. read more

If You Don’t Think This Is Funny… You Might Be a Hipster

Have you ever wondered why all hipsters look alike when they try like heck to be different? It’s the Hipster Paradox.

“Nonconformists travel as a rule in bunches. You rarely find a nonconformist who goes it alone. And woe to him inside a nonconformist clique who does not conform with nonconformity.” Eric Hoffer

It’s more ironic than paradoxical if you ask me. Then again, in my opinion it doesn’t take an advance degree in math or science to deduce hipsters all look alike. All you really need is about three minutes of sipping coffee and people watching at Starbuck’s. And yet Jonathan Touboul, a mathematician and associate professor at Brandeis University, felt compelled to spend a boat load of time (and probably grant money) creating an equation and a computer model to do just that. read more

Real Men Do Romance

Re-posting an essay titled Real Men Do Romance each year on Valentine’s Day has become a Just Another Ordinary Day tradition. The essay, originally published in 2014, takes the form of a letter written to my sons, but is intended for all men who roam the earth in a state of perpetual confusion over romantic protocol, thanks to radical liberal feminist propaganda. For the record, real men do romance and real women (yes, even the liberated ones) are suckers for it…especially on Valentines Day.  Celebrate and be happy. read more

Top Ten Super Bowl Ads of 2019

Super Bowl LIII has come and gone which means it’s time for JAOD’s annual Top Ten Super Bowl Ads. Finding ten exceptional super bowl ads proved to be nearly impossible this year. Seriously, except for the top three on the list, the majority of ads under consideration were just…plain…dull. I guess that’s what happens when advertisers are petrified of offending the perpetually offended. Anyway, here’s the list.

#9 Bublé for Bubly
