A BBHQ Insta-Quote:

We grow justly weary of our politics, But we must remember this: in all its grubby, grasping, corrupt, contemptible manifestations, is sovereign in human affairs. Everything ultimately rests on it.

   ~ Dr. Charles Krauthammer

Click the picture for the BBHQ Monday Morning Upper.


It's the kickoff of football season. We have an amazing demonstration of how one college band celebrated their favorite season.

And now, a word from our sponsor:

Just watch the microsheen shines go by.

This Week with the Chicowitz

Labor Day

Here’s to the crazy ones — the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify them or vilify them. The only thing you cannot do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see them as genius because the ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world... are the ones who do.

A Few of Our Favorite Things
One of over 200 questions in The BBHQ Pop Quiz collection:




The BBHQ Pop Quiz pops up all over BBHQ. Wander around!



Eye Remember... September 5, 1972:


One of the graduates of my high school was on the Israeli weightlifting team in the 1972 Olympics, held in Munich, Germany. He just happened to be Jewish.

Which, as too often was -- and still is -- his great misfortune.

On September 5, 1972, Black September, a Palestinian terrorist group ambushed the Israeli athletes, and murdered 11 of them.



It was the first time in our lives that politics invaded the Olympics. Sadly, it was not the last.

Yeah; I remember it well.




The BBHQ Bare-Bones
Boomer Assessment Test


The BBHQ Official Baby Boomer Qualifying Exam contains some questions that might stump some boomers. So we're working on developing a series of questions that absolutely every boomer would know the answer, and for which non-boomers would be left behind. Here is another one of our questions:

Who is this famous actor?

  Paul Newman
  Burt Lancaster
  Kirk Douglas
  Marlon Brando
  Pee Wee Herman


Simple enough, huh? What other questions should we ask that would clearly identify a boomer and yet stump the unfortunates masses? Please click reply and give us your ideas.



This one is self-explanatory:

The BBHQ Joke of the Week


NOTE: The Navy is now assigning females to submarine duty.

Boat sailors at Groton, Connecticut, were advised by a senior officer, "The female sleeping quarters will be strictly off-limits for all males."

"Anybody caught breaking this rule will be fined $20 for first offense. Anybody caught breaking this rule a second time will be fined $50. Being caught a third time will cost you $100. Are there any questions?"

At this point, a Master Chief stood up in the crowd and inquired:

"How much for a season pass???"





Have a great week. We'll share the fun again next Monday.
