When The Moon Hits Your Eye Like a Big Pizza Pie...
......your career as an astronaut is in trouble.


Lately, some of you have wondered why I've been hanging out with my old astronaut buddy from NASA. Business has been slow for the Space Shuttle, and it looks like there might be some cuts in the Space Program in the future.

You might remember the unfortunate situation he experienced with the unexpected malfunction of the space toilet in June. He was one of the few astronauts who had the where-with-all to have a back-up solution...



the official NASA diaper....

Then, the new Russian bathroom ended up with it's own issues, by issues we are talking gas...gas separation type issues.


With time on his hands and only a few bucks in his pocket, my old buddy has been hanging around the Compound....


.......traipsing along uninvited to the movies with me, and eating like there's no tomorrow all day. The old saying "hungry as a bear" has taken on a whole new meaning.

With cutbacks looming, my friend went job hunting. Looking for a career change. Something to put bread on the table if you will. This is what he came up with.....



Yeah, he's looking for a quick buck....and based on the amount of money he's bringing in, pole dancing just might be his calling......just maybe.


But it attracts the seediest groupies.

I think that groupie looks delightful : ). I hope the career goes well. He will surely meet an interesting clientele : )! Hope you are having a nice rain free Saturday.

HAAAAA!!!!!!!!

Is there a prize for creativity in blogging? Because that pole dance shot is pure genius.
Second runner-up goes to the pool shot from the compound.

Does that seedy individual have a name? For that matter, what about Mr. Astronaut? Maybe you should hold a contest.

I'll have to ponder this the rest of the evening. Surely there has to be a name worthy of such a versatile and talented friend.

This is SOOO funny!!!!!
Poor bear, having to stoop so low to dance for money. I do hear it is a good income though...if things don't change around here, Coach and I both may be dancing.
Thanks for making me laugh really hard!!!!

Who would have thought a rolling pin had alternative uses...besides the old whack up the side of a waywards husbands head (in cartoons).

It looks like your astronaut is piloting a jet from Sprint. His new job looks profitable, and if you are looking for names, let me throw the name Colin into the hat.

Colin

You just crack me up! I think this is going to be a classic! The rolling pin is great :)
