  1. Great list. The steel wool thong made me laugh, alot!

  2. wow... thats an impressive list!

  3. Love it...
    #71 is my fave!!

  4. Glad to see Dip has been granted a stay of execution...

    LOVED the list, especially hearing about how SP is right on the money!


  5. Oh, dude. Some of those are just nasty. Lick a dog's eye buggars? Drinking the water out of a toilet in Mexico? The mental images assault my brain.

    I'm glad you said a baby blue minivan for #12. I was almost offended. I have a DARK blue minivan. :P Not my choice of a hot rod ride but when you gotta haul the kids.....
    My other ride is a '70 Chevelle that's been "modified."

  6. As soon as I saw the title I knew it would be a good one, if you ever wear the Victoria Secret pants I demand a picture! LOL

  7. It's DollyWOOD, Jack. DollyWOOD.

    And you almost lost me at hearing the story of Mom losing her virginity. *shudder*

  8. I want to invite you to my next party. I don't know where you got some of this stuff but it's great entertainment.

  9. Wear Victoria's Secret PINK brand sweatpants- these would be cute on ya! lol I never understood having PINK written across your ass. Or even worse- SEXY when the person wearing them is obviously NOT. haha :)

  10. I can condense my list to one item:
    1. Re-read JackSh*t's list of 100 things he'd rather do than gain his weight back.


  11. A puppy sandwich?! I might even side with PETA on that one. And admit it, Jack - you already are driving a baby blue minivan.

    Thanks for the laugh.

  12. The Father/Sarah Palin one is KILLING me!

  13. Man, I think being glow in the dark would be kinda AWESOME. But I agree with the list wholeheartedly - I'd rather do just about anything than gain my 110 lbs back! :) As always, you crack me up.

  14. Hmmm, are you my long-lost brother? I can see my Dad doing #3. As it is, he likes to call me up to tell me all about how global warming is a hoax, and also argues with me on Facebook about whether Bush was the worst president ever. And how Obama will turn out to be the worst (he can't seem to give me a reason, though).

    I wouldn't mind having a 4-hour conversation with Keanu Reeves about, well, anything really.

    #'s 29, 58, and 80 are my favorites. :o)

  15. I love James Earl Jones! It's a good thing I've got a strong stomach with some of the others you mention... ;o)

  16. This comment has been removed by the author.

  17. **TYPO** Thanks for all of the wreckless ideas! It will be a fun weekend LOL :-) I could not agree more! What I have gained from losing 75LB is priceless!

  18. I don't rush Limbaugh in assless chaps might be kind of fun...happen to love rush. He is hysterically funny. I think I shall come up with a 100 list...somewhere in there is going to have to be alan combs and a jar of vaseline....just sayin'.
    deep thoughts

  19. Jack, too GREAT! I stopped right here & I know this is going to say something about me: Begin each day listening to an hour-long audio of my father Horace explaining why Sarah Palin is right on the money.

    They are all great but I really did stop there & cut & paste! I know we all have the right to out opinions BUT don't push it on me. I have a dear friend that sends stuff to me all the time & I finally told him to STOP!

    OK, I digress.... this is about weight loss! I know you will NOT go back Jack no matter what! I believe in you!

  20. Love the list. Nice, very nice.

    my best

  21. This was HILARIOUS. I might steal this and title it "100 things I'd rather do than listen to Sarah Palin or see Rush Limbaugh in assless chaps."

    I'm telling you I was laughing out loud on this one.

  22. Hi Jack. I'd happily do any of those rather than gain any weight. Errr, apart from #99 ... that's the only one I seem to have the trouble with.

    Best wishes,
    Bearfriend xx

  23. #33 and 81 are faves. Sounds like you're serious about not gaining the weight again. ;)

  24. I was trying to look for my fave, but I love them all! You have amazing creativity my friend!

  25. funny funny sh*t Jack! I am with you.

  26. You kill me..almost as much as YumYucky..that is a compliment.

  27. Hahaha! Funny list! Just goes to show how serious you are about keeping the weight off.


  28. OMG you had me weeping over this one. But heyyyyyyyyyy.... *I* drive a baby blue minivan, dude!!

  29. I like how you write a list of 100 things and all I want to say is "ditto."

  30. I think you'd be dead sexy in some Victoria's Secret sweatpants...wait....this is still Opposite Day right?

  31. This is the funniest post I have read in a *long* time. I can't even list my favorites because there were way too many. You even had my boyfriend laughing out loud.

    By the way, you've got to put up a picture of your manicure and pedicure.

  32. Cold hot chocolate with no marshmallows. Shudder.

  33. This was pretty funny Jack. It makes me ponder coming up with my own list. I am just not sure I am up to it.
