Korea says Obama is a Monkey

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — I was too surprised to see on CNN News on Tuesday night quotes from N. Korea calling President Barack Obama a monkey, and S. Korea’s President Park Geun-hye a whore and a prostitute.

I do not think that Presidents Obama and Park will stoop to being swayed by N. Korea’s vitriolic use of such childish language. However, in a related story, the United Nations plans to file human rights charges against N. Korea and wants to see Kim Jong Un in handcuffs being led away to prison. My only question is: how will they get past Kim Jong Un’s nuclear arsenal in order to slap a pair of handcuffs on the lunatic’s wrists?

Update: Below is a translation of part of the article. It is a picture of the Korean news piece which does not display the whole story. The translator left some particularly difficult phrases in the original Korean. My hope is that I will soon find an upgraded translation of the whole article.
2014-05-09 at 10.50.06 PM, the translator said:
In the KCNA editorial quoting the North Koreans, we see the same language used as the North Koreans heat up their sexist attacks on Presidents Obama and Park. – See more at: http://freekorea.us/2014/05/07/really-north-korea-called-president-obama-a-wicked-black-monkey/#sthash.aXa5gTcN.dpuf

Eyeballs and Elbows

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — The title above is not exactly how the phrase goes. However, you will understand my twist once you read more. Do you remember this picture below from our past? Jayne Mansfield used to dress provocatively publicly in order to attrack attention from the media. I would say that her tactics worked just fine and dandy here. Sophia Loren was having a quiet, pleasant dinner until Mansfield “attacked” her table.

This is the full picture of the incident. Jayne Mansfield did not exactly dress in a child-friendly manner in public. My warning would be to put all women and children to bed (well, at least all children) once Mansfield entered the vicinity.

In the Beginning, God said What?

NEW ORLEANS (by Ferdie Werdie) –
In the beginning, God said: I play the trumpet.
In 1967, Louis Armstrong said: No kidding? You too?
In 2014, Ryan Seacrest said: I play the clarinet…
Go figure! Hahaha…

Here is Ferdie practicing for a gig this weekend on his INSTRUMENT OF THE LORD.

Ferdie Werdie

People often ask me, “Ferdie, what do you dream about? What comes up mostly in your dreams”? I tell them that often I dream about loved ones and relatives who have passed away. I often have vivid dreams where loved ones visit me in my dreams, and we have in-depth long conversations. I also have many, vivid, lively dreams about fine, lovely young ladies; some of whom I do not even know. I wake up truly feeling like I had just spent time with these ladies. I have even subsequently met some of these dream girls in real life. Unbelievable! They often look just like from my dreams. In fact, beginning over 30 years ago I used to dream about the very house that I live in now. I wrote a book in 2002 I HAVE A DREAM about living in this exact house. Who would have even imagined back then that I would now be living in this house? Out of the blue, I was offered to buy this house in 2007.

We ate bbq shrimp, stuffed oysters, alligator, shrimp/grits, charbroiled oysters, and more. My son in-law and 2 grandsons kept busy with skating, bicycling and other physical activities.

NEW ORLEANS (by Ferdie Werdie) — I have begun writing my review of the movie GONE GIRL. If anyone does not understand the ending, just ask me and I will tell you what happened. Actually, I see “sequel” written all over this movie.

I tend to prefer watching movies at home because you can regulate the noise, the crowd, the temperature, the food… and, so much more. On the other hand, I also enjoy going out for the big screen, the IMAX, the 3-D, all of that. However, yesterday, a lady walked into the theater with a big bag of fried chicken, potato salad, potato chips, canned drinks, aluminum foil, paper grocery bags, the whole works; and sat directly behind me. I flipped my lid because I could not hear the movie with all of the noise behind me. Eventually, I got up and moved to another seat. I lost my trend of thought in the movie for a moment; but once I got to a quiet location, I got my head back into the movie.

Robin Williams Suicide

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — I send out my thoughts to the late Robin Williams. I am listening to many words of love from celebrities and loved ones on the TV and on the Internet.

Billy Crystal’s tweet said it all. Billy, Robin and Whoopi were a great comedic trio. They were all good friends.

In other news, I want to go into the jungle. SOON!!! If this is what you find lying around in the jungle, count me in.

Lindsey Lohan is Fine Actress

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — Thank you Germany very much for buying my books, and visiting this website so often. What tag or link is driving you to read about Lindsey Lohan recently? Is Lindsey trending highly in Germany presently? Also, what tag or link is driving you to my books? By the way, my first book IS entitled DRIVING WOMEN CRAZY!! I wrote also that I was headed to the movies, and was wondering if Lindsey Lohan is in any movies out in theaters right now. UPDATE: I never did make it to the movies because of business commitments. However, I think that Lindsey Lohan is a lovely young lady who deserves a long, successful career if she can pull herself back together. Yes, she has had her share of struggles over the years in her young life. Can she clean up her act and have continued success in her life?

Here’s hoping that Lindsey can bring it together and keep her career going. I am sure that she has many fans wishing the best for her. Of course, she also has her detractors who would enjoy to see the train wreck continue. However, there is no guarantee that Lindsey might not wake up one fine day and put all of her ducks in a row.

Note: the following stories which I wrote about were also trending when I wrote this article. Beyonce’s sister attacks JAY-Z! Gets caught on security video, but with no sound. I do not know how close 50 Cent’s interpretation got to the real dialogue on the JAY Z “beating.” However, the dialogue that 50 Cent dubbed into the video sure made me laugh. In fact, I have to watch it once again to have a another good laugh. 50 Cent is too crazy! Spoiler Alert: 50 Cent uses “colorful” language. Meanwhile, Instagram took down 50 Cent’s video; but it is still running at this link.

In the NBA playoffs, these long 7-game series’ in rounds 1 and 2 only kill the fans; but it is also only all about the money for the teams.

What in the heck is usually on my mind anyway? Well, that is the big question in the picture below. Once I wrap up a few things at the house, I plan to go off for a while to get some delicious seafood. I will let y’all know how it all comes out. Firsly, I need to study one or two of these pictures in order to get my blood to flowing correctly.

****************************THE BIG QUESTION!!!************************

What in the heck is on Ferdie's mind this afternoon?

What in the heck is on Ferdie’s mind this afternoon?

UPDATE: My mind still is not blown yet, unless I am not cognizant of it. I did go off to get some good seafood. I went to one of my favorite little hide outs in the 7th Ward for some Cajun/Creole gumbo and an oyster sandwich. I washed it all down with a beer while I watched some fine booties walk in and out. Now, the only thing blown is my stomach. I plan to do some situps and some core exercises later on as soon as I get my head back together. BTW, I also still have to check to see what Jennifer Lawrence’s next movie is. I enjoy her work very much. I know that she is filming the next part of the HUNGER GAMES, but I do not think that is coming out yet.

Many fans watched with interest as quarterback sensation Johnny Manziel sat through 21 selections of the NFL draft before he was picked by the Cleveland Browns. Is this a good pick? Is he happy?

I was excited to see Blake Bortles of the University of Central Florida picked at #3 as the first quarterback selected in the 2014 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. I think that this was a fantastic pick.

Well, I must say that Blake Bortles has fine taste in the ladies too. The Jaguar fans (I would imagine) will also be happy to see Blake’s girlfriend at the games.

I am also still in the process of developing my thoughts on Laura Logan and her suspension from CBS and her projected return. Certain circles believe that Logan’s modus operandi is dangerous to herself and her co-workers. Have you ever thought that maybe she just wants to be the best?

Only in my dreams! It is getting late, and I may be falling asleep soon. What can possibly be waiting for me in my dreams? “Ferdie Werdie, where are you? Do you want to visit me in your dreams? I am waiting,” she says.

Ferdie Werdie, where are you?
