It's been a good ride so far!

Since I was just a kid all I have ever wanted to do was to make people laugh or just smile. As a child, an educator sent a note home to my parents. It read; If your son thinks he is going to get through life making people laugh he is in for a RUDE AWAKENING! He is not living up to his potential. WELL, I'M STILL NOT! But at this site you will at least see me try. From the heart, thank you for even being interested, it means the world to me. I always say, I have not a single fan but many a friend!

Been Dying To Show You Guys This

But I always forget. 

Since I moved to Arizona I damn near stepped away from the bar scene altogether.  It always seems that you find a perfect watering hole to call your very own and something or someone flat out ruins it.  I have only found a few great bars here in the Valley of the Sun that I absolutely love.  I am a details sort of guy and I can't help it.  After growing up in New Jersey next to the town with the most bars in the world yes, South Amboy, N.J., I fell in love with hole in the wall kind of joints.  I'm not sure if it's because things that were stuck on the wall 40 years ago are still stuck on those walls.   For whatever reason these bars rule for me, there is always something that stands out.  It seems each bar, like a woman, has it's own attitude.  Some attitudes you love and some you hate.  It's the little special things that help you overlook things like the toilet being held down with only one bolt.  

One of those bars for me is TT's Roadhouse in Scottsdale, Arizona.  I know immediately you are saying oh God, not Scottsdale.  This isn't anything that comes to mind believe me.  On the bars print and radio advertising,  TT's proudly claims to be a DOUCHE' BAG FREE ESTABLISHMENT!  It's a great little park and punch!  You feel so at home here it's like being in your uncle's basement bar.  Years and years of memories and trophies and it has the best "BANNED" list I have ever seen behind the register, if you ever get a chance take the stool in front of the register and take some time to read it. 

I know you are thinking, Jack, we don't read your blog so that we can hear commercials for your buddies bars!  That's not it.  Like I said, I am a details man and the devil is in the details.  In this case, the devil is in the men's room.  Check out the pics below of the Condom Machine.

Oh yeah, Jack Shit has lost his mind right?  It's not the condom machine that I love so much.  It is the fact that the condom machine states the return policy clearly on the front panel.  At least you know before you purchase.


I LIKE ME AN HONEST BAR OWNER!  I can't tell you how many times I have used this bathroom.  The bar was a converted home, an old home!  The men's room is just a bit larger than a phone booth.  Imagine a small bathroom with a tiny vanity and where the toilet was, a urinal was installed and where the shower was, or I should say is, a toilet was installed.  If you get lucky enough that it's your turn to use the toilet, look to the right and you can still see the shower controls.  I always said that Skoog, the owner, should make T shirts,
I PISSED IN THE SHOWER at TT's Roadhouse..... 

If your in town, go check it out and tell em Jack Shit sent ya!  I am exhausted from my trip to California and I only got home a few hours ago.  So all you get tonight is this bit of JACKSHITLOSOPHY! 

I'll write to you all tomorrow!

  1. Nice!!! I like Eddie's Tavern it's been in my neighborhood since late 50's to early 60's. You could probably fit about 40 people in that place. Back in my parents day, the folks used to ride their horses and hitch em' on the side!!! lmao...An artist drew a cartoon of it and it hung on the wall for many years, but people kept trying to steal it so they had to take it down!!!
