Heard on Mother's Day

MathMan: They were playing baseball with the pink bats today.
Me: Yeah, I saw that.....
MathMan: That's for the Froman Foundation, you know.
Me: You mean the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Abe Froman is the Sausage King of Chicago.
MathMan: Right, right, right. That's right......


Abe Froman. Sausage King of Chicago.

  3. Tried your translator and it worked. It was funny to see your blog in Soumi!! Lots of umlauts. And I could read most of it, some words I didn't know.

  11. Too funny. . . Poor MathMan, straightmen never get any respect (as opposed to straight men, which I assume he is). I feel for him because, on your blog, you are always the hero.

  12. Ya have to love him...he has a good line once in awhile. Hope your Monday was a good one. This is the first Mother's Day in 20 years (almost) that we DID NOT have a baseball game. Cool.

    What translator is Yooper talking about? My son made his own - calls it Zumel on his site.

  13. Nevermind...the walking braindead (me) just found it at the top. DUH?!?!

  14. Please tell MathMan that he's one of our favorite 'other husbands' EVER. Straightmen rarely get the respect they deserve.

    We're too busy laughing at their expense.

  15. Wow, Ferris and the Way Back Machine.. cool. Speaking of cool did you know I now have the ENTIRE city of Chicago as a facebook friend? Why does that scare me?

  16. I am the Jack Benny of husbands. I don't mind feeding the material so my lovely Lisa get the laughs.

  17. Awesome video! But I still think that Abe Froman is a weenie.

  18. Well, sausages can be celebrated too. Usually on a bun with some mustard though :)

  19. There is a t-shirt available somewhere on the web [sorry to be so vague] that says "Sausage King of Chicago." I must get it for my man.

    Good times.

  20. I was seeing Mathman more as Dean Martin or George Burns.
