Different Languages

When I was growing up I had no desire to learn a different language. Learning English was hard enough. What I didn't realize was that it isn't just languages like Spanish, Russian, German and Greek are hard to learn. When they say it is all Greek to me, they are right. I don't even know … Continue reading Different Languages


Back for A Bitter New Season

  Lost in all the hype of all the new TV shows, football season and hurricanes, fires and other natural disasters, the AP probably didn't pick this up. But they should have, because bitterness is at all all time high and we need this more than ever now. For those of you who are old … Continue reading Back for A Bitter New Season

Modern Age Mother-in-Laws

My condolences to Yunma of the Institute of Parenthood as she is not only the first person to have the curse of being the first of my Saturday reblogs, but she is also getting outshined by Instagram. It must suck for her today. Sorry about piling on, but that is what I do. So sorry about your bad luck. I hope your blog doesn’t burn down or get blown away by a hurricane.

I hope you all enjoy Yunma’s post and that it makes you feel all bitter inside.

Institution of Parenthood


Firstly, apologies for being MIA recently. The biggest arch nemesis of virtual life is the little thing called real life, and my real life has been a whiny, needy child these days.

Why did the Chicken cross the Playground? To get to the other Slide on down to Friday Giftures

  I used to tell dumb jokes when I was young. I also told dumb jokes yesterday. You see, I haven't changed. Not one bit. Well I have expanded. My gut. And my back isn't what it used to be. And my face is 10 times older than when I was four. But other than … Continue reading Why did the Chicken cross the Playground? To get to the other Slide on down to Friday Giftures

Coming soon to an Office near you

I am about as big a fan of The Office fan as there gets. Aside from the lunatics on the internet anyways.  Since the day we got Netflix, I have watched The Office nonstop. My wife thinks I'm crazy to keep watching the same show over and over again. I have almost memorized all of … Continue reading Coming soon to an Office near you

They’ve got no chill for Friday Giftures

Can you just feel the chill of fall coming into the air? It couldn't be that it is September now? That means movies are officially starting to be either terrible or trying to be Oscar films. This also means that Halloween stuff is starting to invade stores and football takes over most people's lives. Or … Continue reading They’ve got no chill for Friday Giftures

We’ve got a Nap for that

You know the old Apple ad slogan, "We've got an app for that?" It's a great one, because people always remember it. And people are always parodying it. Well, guess who is parodying it today? That's right, your not-so-friendly  neighborhood Bitterman, me. As a lifelong napper, I know for a fact that there is definitely … Continue reading We’ve got a Nap for that

Water You Thinking?

  You know America has all kinds of first world problems. I'm not the richest of people, but I'm sure wealthier than most when it comes to the world. I've decided that you know you are a first world country when plentiful water is available. And I'm not talking about hurricanes that put a city … Continue reading Water You Thinking?

Swift End to Friday Giftures

  There is no better way to prepare for a weekend than trying to figure out why someone is stalking you. I'm not sure why anyone would want to stalk me, because my life is exceedingly dull and uninteresting, and all I have is this very famous blog as a platform, but for some reason … Continue reading Swift End to Friday Giftures

Identity Theft is Not a Bitter Joke

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RC5imk9sG1M Jim Halpert is my prankster idol. For 9 seasons, he spent most of his free time at work (and even extensive time after work), coming up with devious pranks to get Dwight back for being a stickler to rules or whatever. One of my favorite ones, was when Jim found a pair of Dwight … Continue reading Identity Theft is Not a Bitter Joke

Lice-ense to Kill

Just so you know, before you start reading this post, you are going to itch. It's inevitable. So, get out your itching powder or whatever it is that you need before you start reading. My family recently went back to Washington for a couple weeks. We didn't bring gifts, we brought something much better. My … Continue reading Lice-ense to Kill

A Total Eclipse of the Hero

If you haven't heard of the total eclipse of the sun that is coming, then you've been even more hidden from the news than I have. I took a quick trip to Seattle for a wedding this weekend, and it was all people could talk about. Mostly because people are taking pilgrimages up to Idaho … Continue reading A Total Eclipse of the Hero

I’m Not a Big Fan of Friday Giftures

  While the heat continues to plague us, we find ways to beat the heat. Since I have the air conditioning set at arctic temperatures, so I have to sleep in a heavy coat under my comforter, it is okay when I am inside the house. However, for those six seconds between the house and … Continue reading I’m Not a Big Fan of Friday Giftures

Bitter Exchange Program

I remember when I was a younger Bitter Ben and my skills at bitterness weren't as refined or perfected, and my family decided that having 5 kids plus two parents wasn't enough for our house. Since my sister was learning french, my parents decided to take in a foreign exchange student. Her name was Virginia … Continue reading Bitter Exchange Program

Driving Mr. and Mrs. Baby

Remember last weekend when I told you about my life in crime? When I was the most wanted driver in three states? Well, I guess all that crazy driving paid off. An old couple in my neighborhood got wind of my excellent driving skills(or maybe they just heard I was unemployed at the moment) and … Continue reading Driving Mr. and Mrs. Baby

Life’s Little Bitter Annoyances Friday Giftures

  It's not everyday when there are big bitter annoyances that happen like traffic accidents, or annoying co-workers talking to you all day. It's on those days when you need to search out  for the little things that annoy you. Sometimes you just have to be thankful for the mosquitoes buzzing in your ear, or … Continue reading Life’s Little Bitter Annoyances Friday Giftures

My Bitter Life of Crime

You would think that a guy that sits on the couch as much as I do, wouldn't attract the law as much as I do. You would think that a guy that drives like an old grandma that can barely see over her steering wheel, wouldn't have as many speeding tickets as I do. My … Continue reading My Bitter Life of Crime
