Sheldon The Wonderhorse

Eating Apples Since 1969

Well, that was exciting, no? I, for one, was shocked by what I was seeing from these two political powerhouses. Let's take a moment and look back at the events of the evening.


8:00 - Candidates meet and shake hands. Romney says "I will break you" in Russian accent.

As some of you know, I am running for president.

Sure, it's been a quiet campaign so far - no tv ads, no radio spots, no post-convention bump. But, that's not going to dissuade me from leading this country back to prosperity. It's time the American  people get to know… Read full post »

Things My Boy Should Know: A Guyde

I got thinking about babies today.

Specifically, I got thinking about mine. He's not here yet, the Wonderpony, but we're only a few weeks away. With February fast approaching, I realized, "Holy shite, Shel, you got to get the boy some learnin' and fast". So, I started thinking: What should every… Read full post »

I May Have to Kill That Snowman

Boy, this is turning out to be a bad idea.

At the time, it seemed harmless enough. Build a snowman, give him a magic hat, watch him come to life, frivolity ensues. I was all set for hysterical quips and skimming down snow-covered hills on his back. I thought we'd… Read full post »

Well done, madam. Well done indeed.

You are fully invested in the holiday, and I for one salute you. It's not everyone who has, dare I say, the balls to leave one's house with a giant turkey on their sweatshirt. But you, my friend, obviously swim against the stream of the… Read full post »

Looking a Gift Horse in the Mouth

How was your day?


What do you mean?

I mean, odd. A guy at work gave me a potato.

A potato.


Like a potato potato?

Yeah. A potato potato.

Like a baked potato?

No, like a raw potato.

He gave you a raw potato.

Yes, he gave me a raw potato.… Read full post »

Just Wait....

Dear Current and/or Past Parents of Various Peoples,

Oh, McRib. Welcome back.

A Pork-esque Sammie. 

I think I can say in all honesty, it's been at least 13 years since I've had one of these bad boys. Hey, McRib? Whaddya say we make it another 13 years, huh? I swear, I had one of these two days ago, and I still… Read full post »

Dear America, I Quit

Oh America. 

Why, why, WHY must you be the stereotypical battered girlfriend who constantly falls for the ol' "But baby, I've changed. I promise, it'll be different this time" line? It won't, and all you're going to end up with is a broken arm and a chipped tooth.  

Sure, there… Read full post »

Grampa's Balls

I got thinking about balls today. Specifically, those belonging to Brett Favre.

Yet Another Photo of Favre With a Ball in his Hand 

Don't get me wrong - I don't usually spend a lot of time thinking about or picturing the scroticular region of men, not to mention future Hall of Fame quarterbacks. But this is different - I have no… Read full post »

Days after her debate with Chris Coons, Delaware Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell was surprised to discover that Missouri is actually a state.

Really? Missouri  is a state? 

"Where does it show that?", she asked. "Show me on a map where Missouri is a state".

When shown a map by an advisor, O'Donnell shrugged it o… Read full post »

Blackeyes and Boysenberry

Boy oh boy, that was a mistake.

I absolutely MUST stop going to the Waffle House at 2:00am.

I mean, seriously. I went out last night, ran into Axl Rose, and now here I am, sporting whiteguy corn-rows and have a mouth stained with boysenberry. The sad part is, with… Read full post »

Sheldon's Pledge to America

I got thinking about pledges this morning.

For the most part, I like pledges. They tend to be nice little personal affirmations of "You know what, Chester? You make me feel a certain way, and as a result, I'm going to act like this in response" (Pledges also make your… Read full post »

Oh douchebags, is there no end to the joy you bring? You can tell fall is coming around the corner, because the Douchebag Harvest is in full swing.

The Balcony Is Closed

This weekend marked the end of an era. An era that started 35 years ago in a small television studio in Chicago, and it went out just like it came in: quiet, unassuming, and with very little fanfare.

Sneak Previews first aired on September 4, 1975 on Chicago's PBS station WTTW… Read full post »

Shocking news out of Hollywood today that the new Julia Roberts movie Eat Pray Love will feature a scene in which the 43-year-old star laughs.

To All The Girls I Semi-Liked Before

I got thinking about old girlfriends today.

As my bachelor days are winding down, I found myself flashing back on those that got me here. Those that made me act like a fool. Those that made me pull out more hair than I could afford. You know, those that had me… Read full post »

As I'm sure you have heard by now, a man was detained at a Mexico City airport after it was discovered he was smuggling 18 monkeys in his girdle.
