The Bitter Ben Holiday Variety Hour and a Half Special

Remember gathering around the Tube of many colors as a family when you were a kid?  Remember those old Holiday Special Variety Shows that celebrities did on television where they would decorate a tree or have a snowball fight(I especially enjoyed when the snowball fight went just a little too far) or sat around opening presents?  All so they had the excuse to sing Holiday … Continue reading The Bitter Ben Holiday Variety Hour and a Half Special

Bitter Dreams Toy Company

When I am asked to give a speech at seminars, usually as the Principal of the B.I.T.T.E.R. School of Bitterness, I don't prepare.  A long time ago, I would pore over notes, walk around talking to myself and even have dillusions of more than my parents clapping at a rousing speech that I would give.  Then … Continue reading Bitter Dreams Toy Company

Bitter Management

Many years ago, when I was a lot less into my mid life crisis (29 years old), I had told my wife of my desire for a surprise party for my 30th birthday. After talking about it, she told me it wasn't a good idea, because I would know about it and it wouldn't be … Continue reading Bitter Management

Amazing Race: The Bitter Review

Yesterday, I was inside most of the day watching our LDS Worldwide Church Conference on TV.  My kids were bugging each other all day, so I decided to take them outside so I could see what the outdoors looked like.  We were really ambitious and decided to go on a walk.  After losing my breath after … Continue reading Amazing Race: The Bitter Review

Bitter Entertainment News (B.E.N.)

As a lifelong ignorer of news, I usually have no idea what is happening in Bosnia or Washington DC or even Seattle.  Sure I've heard of the occasional Disney princess (Miley Virus anyone?) going awry or the forecast of an actual sunny day in Seattle, but the news interferes with me playing video games or napping, which are way more … Continue reading Bitter Entertainment News (B.E.N.)

Bitter Insurance Commercials

Every day, as I am driving, I roll down my window, pull out my wallet and let the money fly right out.  Not literally, of course, are you crazy?(I only do that on special occasions.) Every six months I pay someone several hundred dollars to "give me piece of mind" for the off chance that I may accidently … Continue reading Bitter Insurance Commercials

Bicycle Bitterness

Remember the feeling you had the first time you learned how to do something? The first time you learned to fail at math and got an "F" on your report card? Or almost drowned learning how to swim? Or got your first cavity, by brushing your teeth improperly or even got bitter for the first … Continue reading Bicycle Bitterness

Kickstarter Bitterness

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post, hoping to find a bitter rival out there on the Internet.  I got a lot of response from eager goody two shoes wishing to make this a nicer place to live.  Bunch of weirdos. I fought and defeated many nice rivals.  Then, all of a sudden … Continue reading Kickstarter Bitterness

Bitter News with Pictures

Sarcasm is my second language.  The only reason it is second is because Bitterness is my native tongue.  I hope to someday learn English fluently.  When I get really ambitious I might learn Spanish bitterness, then possibly Spanish sarcasm.  Don't ever expect me to learn Spanish though. There is finally a way to express my heartfelt … Continue reading Bitter News with Pictures

Mother’s Day Bitterness

  I've noticed around the Blogimunity, facebook (facebook doesn't get a capital letter), and Twitter that many people have been saying really nice things about their moms.  It seems like that there has been a simultaneous, worldwide niceness towards moms.  I guess everyone has just been really sentimental towards their moms and for that I … Continue reading Mother’s Day Bitterness

Bitter Pic of the week

I love the end of the month, because it is a way where we can all come together and assign tasks to each that we have been procrastinating for the whole month.  I think it brings us father apart as friends and family and co-workers.  I like to think of the last day of the month, … Continue reading Bitter Pic of the week

Bitter GIF of the Week and the B.I.T.T.E.R School of Bitterness

I was looking back to my first post a mere year ago, and it made me think.  (How dare you first post!)  It basically spells out my mission statement, my purpose for not only this blog, but the meaning of my life.  The world is getting sloppy with all its happiness and its upbeatness and its smiling and … Continue reading Bitter GIF of the Week and the B.I.T.T.E.R School of Bitterness

Bitter Picture of the Week

  Acting is hard.  I have tried it zero times and from that experience, I found that I don't like it.  You have to memorize lines and deal with multiple assistants that just can't get the right temperature on your cold water, and dealing with the media who sometimes ask hard questions.  For instance,  What is … Continue reading Bitter Picture of the Week

Sock Bitterness

It has been said (by google) that only 1.9% of the world's population are twins.  In my family, there are two sets.  My mother has a twin brother, (who by the way barely looks or acts like her) and my sister has a twin boy and girl.  (I call them neice and nephew, but you … Continue reading Sock Bitterness

100th blog post bitterness

It all started out with a dream.  It was a bitter dream, but nonetheless a good bitter dream.  I wanted to show that everywhere you look, everywhere you are, everyone you know, there is something bitter to be about.  I know I have just scratched the surface of the bitterness in this world, but I … Continue reading 100th blog post bitterness

Trial and Error bitterness

There have been some great combinations in the history of combinations.  There was Tango and Cash of the movie Tango and Cash.  There is the Reese's Peanut Butter claim of chocolate and peanut butter being a good combination.  How about a locker and a combination lock?  There is Romeo and Juliet, a combination of opposing families … Continue reading Trial and Error bitterness

Bitterest Place on Earth – Universal Studios – Part 6 The end

The last of an epic 6 part Universal/Disney Bitterness Series.  As long as this is to read, you will want to stick around until the the very end. Remember when you were young and, after toiling for 9 long months in the slammer (school) you were able to experience the first day of summer?  You … Continue reading Bitterest Place on Earth – Universal Studios – Part 6 The end

The Bitterest Place on Earth – Disney Studios Edition – Part 5

Every once in a while a movie can be magical.  You can be completely transported to another place, or time or be another person.  I remember the first time I saw the Karate Kid.  When I got home my parents couldn't get me to stop karate chopping my brother or stop me from doing that crane move … Continue reading The Bitterest Place on Earth – Disney Studios Edition – Part 5
