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.

#10 Audi E-Tron

#9 Bublé for Bubly

#8 Oil of Olay read more

Why I Voted for Donald Trump

This is dedicated to all the incredulous people who feel entitled to an explanation. You want to know why I voted for Donald Trump?  THIS is why.

Following is the full text of President Trump’s remarks.

Today, I am very proud to welcome tens of thousands of families, students, and people of all faiths and backgrounds to our nation’s capital for the 46th annual March For Life.

This is a movement founded on love and grounded in the nobility and dignity of every human life.

When we look into the eyes of a newborn child we see the beauty in the human soul and the Majesty of God’s creation. We know that every life has meaning and that every life is worth protecting. As President, I will always defend the first right of our Declaration of Independence, the right to life. read more

The World According to Lulu: Hello My Name is Lulu

Hello. My name is Lulu. I am a dog.

I live in a house. With a yard. With two humans. They are mommy human and daddy human. They are my family. They love me. They love me more than anyone else in the whole world has ever loved me. I know this because they feed me and they talk to me and they play with me and they let me nibble on their clothes and sit next to them on the sofa, but mostly I know they love me because they save my poop. No one has ever saved my poop before. They collect it in a little bag that smells like purple flowers and carry it home when we’re out walking. I think this is funny because it’s just poop and as far as I know everybody poops, but mine is the only poop they save. That’s how I know they love me more than anyone else in the whole world. read more
