Tag, You’re It

Excentric World staff members take a look at the increasing lack of connection today’s children are having with playing outdoor games.  Years past, when a child was learning to play hide and go seek, they understood they should be somewhere they might not be easily discovered. Nowadays that concept is futile, as the child can be reached by cell phone and can be easily tagged and made “it.” Longing for the good old days. Related posts: No related posts.

Papers, Please

In June, Excentric World staff members take a look at the future and the way some politicians plan on boosting the economy. The animal kingdom has long been freeloading off of the leftovers of the many hard working Americans. In the wings is a program that will require the government capture these offenders, enlistment of them into the workforce and then taxing the crap out of them. Animals will be banded for identification, proving they are from the US and not migratory.

Here’s to You . . .

In April, Excentric staff members take a look at the problem of binge drinking. It is widely accepted among medical professionals that a glass of red wine each night can actually be good for the body. This woman seems to have found a way to follow her doctor’s recommendation and still reach a place of comfort she has become accustomed to. Glass blowers everywhere are hurrying to satisfy the rapidly growing demand.   Related posts: It All Starts Over a Glass of Wine Blind and in the Dark Grapes and the Grill . . . by Joel Mann, Staff Wine…

A Look into the Future: Highway Safety

Excentric World staff members look at the safety on America’s highways. Many states have rescinded annual state inspections requiring cars be safe before being allowed on state roads. Some say the revenue would bail out most states while making the roads safer. Mirrors may have helped this driver.   Related posts: An Excentric Look Into The Future Excentric Look into The Future Back To the Future, Part I An Excentirc Look Into The Future

Rising Cost of Fuel Spurs Alternative Modes of Transportation

Sedona Excentric World staff members take a look at the rising cost of fuel on the logging industry in Flagstaff, Arizona. While many Americans have abandoned their standard vehicles for mass transit, smaller fuel-efficient cars, scooters and bicycles, commercial enterprises too have had to resort to alternative modes of transportation. According to a moose salesman in Saskatchewan, Canada, not only has the Canadian dollar soared in value due to the increase in oil prices (Canada is the number 1 importer of fuel oil to the United States, Mexico being second), but their importation of moose and their prices have increased…

An Excentric Look Into The Future

In April, our crack staff takes a close look into the immigration issue from the perspective of Americans residing primarily in the south. It seems there are a lot of uneducated Americans upset that competent, skilled laborers are being hired by companies in their state at lower wages and with benefits. So, rather than picket the employers, they grab a couple of 24 packs and protest at the border. Related posts: An Excentric Look into The Future . . .

An Excentric Look into The Future . . .

In February, our staff takes a look at odd Valentine’s Day rituals in the deep south of the United States. A couple exchanges their vows in swamp land, the bride carrying a small bouquet of Spanish moss, the groom in his finest chapeau. As one can easily discern from the photograph, everyone on the groom’s side of the family came dressed for the occasion. The gown? Louis Gator. Related posts: An Excentric Look Into The Future . . .

In January, our staff takes a look at carnivals and fares cropping up around the country. Following on the heels of last month’s revealing Excentric headline, involving Six Flags, January exposes the dangers fast rides pose to the public. In an exclusive expose, roller coasters and Ferris wheels prove to be the most dangerous, especially when they powered by local boneheads.

An Excentric Look Into The Future . . .

In December, our staff takes a look at the strange places people go to achieve some privacy. Few people are fortunate enough to have a space of their own they can retreat to in order to get away from it all. One man was digitally captured seeking some alone time to read his daily newspaper. With family visiting and every room occupied by someone doing something, the only place he could seek solace was atop his chimney cap on his home’s roof. While amused by the idea of squatting on a chimney cap to read a paper, we were disappointed…

In November, our staff takes a look at automobile repairs performed by owners. Rather than pay professionals to replace their bumpers, car owners are rummaging through the scrap yards, pulling out the old bungee cords, duct tape and super glue and hitting the roads again. Keep your distance. Looking around the country, our staff has observed a noticeable increase in wood paneling on motor vehicles. This is not the kind your grandpa used to have on the sides of his station wagon, but more a display of plywood and particle boards designed to hold their vehicles together. Related posts: An…

In October, our staff takes a look at the matching of pets with their guardians. As one can easily determine from this photo, the facial features of this woman are similar to the expression offered by the mastiff taking up the entire back seat of the vehicle. Comparisons of guardians of tropical fish proved to be more difficult to pair.

Cheap Halloween

In October, Excentric staff members take a look at people who celebrate Halloween without spending money on costumes or masks. In today’s economy people are finding many ways to cut back. Some are cooking at home more often, no matter how bad the food tastes, while others have reduced the amount of cash they normally would lay out for various non-essentials. This lovely woman is a perfect example of someone looking to save their hard earnings for something other than a disguise for All Hallows Eve. It appears she is going for the local Chupa Cabra look alike. With her…

In September, our staff takes a look at the luck of the Irish. Find a 4-leaf clover and enjoy good luck and prosperity forever. For even better luck, kiss the blarney stone or catch a leprechaun. For the best luck of all, find the pot o’ gold at the end of a rainbow. Just remember, that more often than not, the pot will contain something not quite as valuable as gold. Whatever you do, don’t kiss it. Related posts: Excentric Look into The Future Excentric Look Into The Future An Excentric Look Into The Future An Excentric Look Into The…

In August, our staff takes a look at popular television shows involving Amish people, like Breaking Amish and Amish Mafia. Now, under direction of Sir William, a new show is being shot featuring a young group of Amish beachcombers relocated from Pennsylvania to the sands of the New Jersey shore. Amish Gone Bass is sure to be a big hit on some high numbered cable channel.

Emergency Wine . . .

In July, our staff takes a look at the positive effects of red wine on human health and longevity. If test results prove to be true, a new type of business is cropping up all over the country, especially in neighborhoods catering to senior citizens. The convenience of wine delivery along with reducing golf cart accidents adds to its popularity.   Related posts: Beating The Walmart Crowd… What’s On Tap . . . by Joel Mann, Staff Wine Tasting Guy The World’s Most Popular White Wine . . . by Joel Mann Butter and Cream . . . by Joel…

In May, our crack Excentric staff takes a look at new clothing accessories designed to accommodate young apartment dwellers who are pet friendly. Many areas prohibit pets, either due to space limitations or potty issues. To this day, some pet lovers refuse to carry litter lifting bags. The answer is  dog poop power. Most collected feces currently go in the trash and to landfills. They release methane gas, a significant contributor to climate change. In 2010, a dog park in Cambridge, Mass., brought in a methane digester. Dog waste now powers streetlights, a tea cart and popcorn machine. Even though…

In April, our crack Excentric staff take a look at Spring Break 2014. With thousands of college students expected to flock to party cities around the country, wrecking havoc on bars and hotels. Hopefully, this reveler is posing for friends looking to have their picture go viral on social media. With cameras on every cell phone, everyone is  subject to being caught on film. Maybe Senator Rand Paul and Freedom Works could get a class-action lawsuit against cell phone makers for invasion of privacy.   Related posts: An Excentric Look Into The Future . . .

An Excentirc Look Into The Future

In January 2014, our crack Excentric staff members delve into the secret lives of retired cartoon characters. Once known throughout the world as a putty-tat-taunting little bird, the tweeting and twitting have now left this bird as he roosts at his retirement cage with barely enough strength to occasionally ring his food bell. Such is the plight of many aging cartoon characters – sadly left to silently wither away, alone, without fanfare and for some without visitors. As we each look to our futures, let us hope we will have familiar characters and loved ones at our sides, lest we…

Warning: Hot Coffee May be Hot, Avoid Crotch

In December, our crack Excentric members take a look at the signs businesses have been forced to post due to the ignorance of their customers and frivolous lawsuits. The woman who sued McDonald’s for spilled hot coffee comes to mind, or the man who set his RV on cruise control and left the wheel to get a beverage and sued the manufacturer for not having a sing posted that the driver shouldn’t leave the cockpit while the vehicle was in motion. In this case, if the balcony was on the ground level, it would be a patio. What is wrong…

In November, our crack Excentric staff members take another look at people celebrating Halloween without spending money on costumes or masks. Fortunately, this man’s body hair allowed him, with the aid of his wife and electric razor, to go to his neighborhood part as a Neanderthal guy in drag. While many men choose to go out as the opposite gender on All Hallows Eve, women tend to exaggerate their own sexuality, going as Gypsies, Goddesses, Witches, Debutantes, Heiresses, and the like. Men’s collective imagination seems limited to stereotypical  fantasy roles of Cheerleader, Nurse and French Maid. Good thing this guy…
