What the hell is ANSKY?

Know what's fun? Doing a load of laundry and finding your bathtub half-filled with dirty, soapy water, and also roots. And also your one (1) toilet is suddenly out of commission, due to aforementioned drainage/roots issue.

Know what's fucking ridiculous? The fact that the new Yankee Stadium vends not only appletinis, but also an item called "American Fries." It gets a little harder to defend you fuckers with every "American fry" you sell, and every Fatass American La-Z-Boy Padded Heated X-Tra-Wide field-level seat bought by corporate assholes as perks several years ago that now goes unfilled, silencing the crowd and making you look like a forgotten midmarket team that hasn't had an over-.500 season in about 37 goddamn years.

What is more American than the Statue of Liberty? Oops, it came from France too. Guess we better sink it out to sea.

Appletinis? American Fries? That sound you just heard was my heart breaking.

Were they Big Appletinis (TM)? Because then I facepalm harder.

Also, I feel your pain on the plumbing. Not too long ago, my tenants' (I own/live in a 4plex) crotchfruit stuck a hanger down our sewer clean out valve (ok kinda my fault for not replacing the $2 cover the absolute first time I noticed it). This trapped all manner of niceness and backed it up for all 4 apartments. Mind you that each of my tenants has between 3-4 family members. Even worse than not being able to use your toilet is when others use theirs and it backs up into yours. Luckily, it could have been much worse.

\\Don't know what an Ansky is but today is ANZAC day in Aussie land.

I know I'm gonna get reamed for this, but it doesn't help that you just lost 2 straight come from behind games up the street in beautiful Fenway Park which turned 97 this year and continues to sell-out at an alarming record-breaking rate.

But, I am sorry to hear about the plumbing.

And french fries didn't even come from France. Just like french string beans didn't either. To "french" something is to slice it into slvers or thin strips before cooking/frying. But you all know that.

Pedantic soapbox lecture to the converted over.

ANSKY: a commercial during the 98 or 99 season, where five tubby guys painted blue, each with a capital letter in white painted in mid-chest, crowd into a cab. Cabbie looks back, goes "What the hell is ANSKY?" Guys scramble out of the cab, pile back in, and it says YANKS -- celebration ensues.

Uncle Spike: I know, right? [sigh]

Slugger: It is extra sad for that reason as well. But watching these games at Fenway, I'm reminded in a really painful fashion of what we've lost. Sometimes I hate being proven right.
