A Dose of Buckley 25 – ADHD

Posted in A Dose of Buckley with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2010 by adoseofbuckley

Good ol’ Attention Deficit Disorder. I guess it’s not really one of those things you can really call “good ol” because the term has existed for a relatively short period of time when you consider the history of medical terminology (then again, so has “AIDS” and I don’t doubt it’s existence). Anyway, someone sent me a link to a website to help people with ADHD recently, and there’s just so much great unintentional comedy, it was begging to be torn apart. Luckily I’m sure people with ADHD won’t mind, a bird will fly by or something and they won’t even make it through this video.

A Dose of Buckley 24 – Taco Bell

Posted in A Dose of Buckley with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2010 by adoseofbuckley

I really enjoy Taco Bell. I enjoyed it so much that I recently won a large prize pack from the franchise worth a couple hundred dollars. And it’s with this tough-love attitude that I decided to make a few suggestions on how Taco Bell could go about improving their service. No one’s perfect after all, not even a place that makes delicious fake Mexican food!

Advice No One Asked For – Number Five

Posted in Supplements with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2010 by adoseofbuckley

I’ve only done five of these, but I think it’s safe to say each one is among the best pieces of content on my site (like that’s a difficult ranking).

It’s Advice No One Asked For! If you haven’t heard these segments before, basically I find some dumb question that someone asked to some dumber advice columnist, and answer it myself because quite frankly, these advice columnists are just not giving these people the answers they need to hear.

This edition, I help a woman who’s struggling with a moral dilemma. Does she let anyone else know the information she has on another woman she knows? Listen for my take on it:

A Dose of Buckley 23 – Telemarketers

Posted in A Dose of Buckley with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 17, 2010 by adoseofbuckley

So, despite the fact that I’m on the Do Not Call List, I get calls from Telemarketers all the time. So, I’ve had to come up instead with creative ways of dealing with them, because hanging up doesn’t do anything, swearing at them doesn’t do anything… they just keep calling back. Sometimes I like to have fun with them, other times I just want to get them off the phone as quickly as possible. So, when Bell called recently to offer me a “free” cell phone, I came up with a way to get them to hang up on me in less than a minute. Have a listen.

Musical Autopsy – Orianthi – According To You

Posted in Supplements with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 13, 2010 by adoseofbuckley

Musical Autopsy: A feature at A Dose of Buckley where I put a song or artist on my cutting table and dissect the music, lyrics, etc. This week, Orianthi’s hit single, “According to You” has its day under the knife.

The true meaning behind the song discovered:

More of this type of comedy, if it’s your thing, at A Dose of Buckley. If it’s not your thing… visit anyway, send me some hate mail, it’ll give me more material for another favourite segment of mine, Fan Mail.

A Dose of Buckley 22 – Baja and Celebs

Posted in A Dose of Buckley with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 9, 2010 by adoseofbuckley

Alright, so last weekend a bunch of celebrities twittered their reaction to the Earthquake in Baja California. Now, incase you weren’t aware, actors, actresses, and celebrities who just sort of became celebs without any real accomplishments, are completely useless and no more intelligent than most people, which is to say, not very intelligent at all. But since they feel they’re important, they like to comment on everything that’s happening, whether they have anything smart to say about it or not. And guess what: they don’t. Absolute idiocy is what this week’s Dose of Buckley is about. Have a listen to what some famous folks had to say about the quake that killed 2 and injured 100.

Bad Head – Edition 1

Posted in Supplements with tags , , , , , , on April 8, 2010 by adoseofbuckley

A new feature that I’ll attempt to regularly do at A Dose of Buckley (maybe not as regularly as “Advice No One Asked For” but certainly more regularly than “Musical Autopsy”), it’s called “Bad Head”. Here’s the idea: I find a bunch of headlines that I think use a poor choice of words or are just flat out badly written, and make some sort of joke about each one. If you hate wordplay, puns, and jokes about dead children… well, whatever, listen to it anyway. Not like you had anything else going on.
