Friday Mail Bag

Hiya ,
thanks for
in on the
Muscleheaded Blog.

It’s a mixed
mail bag
for sure.

Cool stuff,
weird stuff,
fringe stuff,
old stuff,
really old stuff,
and just stuff.

Most of it wasImage result for vintage postcard chicken
sent to us by
readers just like

Hell, it coulda
been you for all
anybody knows.

We’ve been doing
a mailbag post for
about three years
now, and I think
there’s still goodies
that have been sent
in that we haven’t used
yet from the beginning.

Which goes to
show ya just how
much great stuff
has been sent in
over the years —
and please,
don’t stop.

A lotta times,
we’ll hold
on to something
because there
are plans –
– big plans –
to use the submission
in a themed post
rather than the
mail bag , but
we just haven’t got
around to it.

Busy ,
around here, man,
that’s all I can
tell you.

It doesn’t
explain the
use of the
first person
plural pronoun
when there’s
nobody else
here ‘xcept us

Oh, and
you can
add the whole
poultry and ‘us’
reference to
the inexplicability
aspect as well.

I can promise you
that no chickens
were harmed in the
production of this
blog- although
again, once lunch
time comes around,
there’s no warranties
either expressed or


!!! HOY !!!

Terry Pratchett says:


“Just erotic.
Nothing kinky.
It’s the difference
between using a feather
and using a chicken.”

The Pecking Order

I don’t have anything
against chickens,
I really don’t.

Bad eyesight is
a big pain
in the ass,
whether you’re
a people or
a poultry.

Sure, I know
it doesn’t
matter too much,
when it comes to
down to the Colonel’s bucket…….

But I’d still like to know
that they’ve got 20/20 vision
while they’re scoping out
each other in the barnyard.

Unfortunately, that’s not
what this next vintage
invention is really about.

Yes, they are
‘chicken eye-glasses’.

chickens can be
mean little fuckers —

And one way the
‘pecking order’ in a
group is established
is by them pecking
each other’s eyes out.


A big problem, really.

So, anyhoo —

These little rose colored
eyeglasses were invented
to prevent that.

And the only reason
I know that, is
because I came
across a pair of
them in a Kentucky
antique store, and
laughed at the guy
when he told me
what they were.

But, as funny
as it sounds,
they did work –
and are still in
use around the
world for that purpose.

this place is
downright weird, ain’t it?
