Bagged and Tagged...Stephen T. McCarthy


Well, I haven't bagged anyone lately, so STEPHEN T. MCCARTHY, you've been Bagged and Tagged.

Everyone wish STMcC a safe journey as he relocates to Reno! 

A few Reno facts:

  • The first monkey to communicate by sign language was raised in Reno. This could come in handy, STMcC, if you just don't want to talk to anyone.
  • What city holds the world's record for the most people playing checkers at one time? You guessed it - Reno. So, STMcC, if you get in the mood...there's at least 540 checkers players you could challenge to a game.
  • If you see a dead body, don't curse in front of it. It's illegal. You got that, STMcC? I fear this law could trip you up.
  • Don't take your umbrella...Reno only gets 7 inches of rain a year.
  • You can always scoot down the road to Lake Tahoe, Top Lake in America. No skinny dipping; you'll sully the good name of Tahoe.
  • You can play slots just about anywhere...even the grocery store. Take a shopping list in case you get distracted.
  • Reno 911! is not filmed in Reno. Sorry.
  • 4+ million visitors a year - make sure you have a spare bedroom.
  • Visit the pools in Reno - they all have aqua lifts. Then drop me a postcard and tell me what exactly is an aqua lift? I use a water glass to life my aqua.
  • It doesn't matter where you live - as long as you blog, brother.
Safe travels!

    1. (Hey, we got a duplicate, ha ha. Cleaning up the other one - I've done that, too.)

      Thanks for stopping by, Linda!

  3. I chuckled all through; one of my primary school friends lives in Reno and she has a number of funny tales to share about it.

    1. When I started to look for a few facts, I was shocked at how many resources were available. That makes Reno pretty interesting, ha ha. Have a good day, Jacqueline!

  4. I would love to visit Reno. I haven't been out west too many times. I did visit Vegas, though.

    1. The farthest I've been in Phoenix, but a was a tag-a-long on a business trip with Hubzam. Later, he had to go to Reno and sent back beautiful pictures of Lake Tahoe. Let's go, Medeia!

  5. When I was just a baby my mama told me. Son,
    Always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns.
    But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
    When I hear that whistle blowing, I hang my head and cry..

    Good morning, dear Cherdo!

    Stephen has become a great friend and partner in humor crime and I wish him safe travels and much happiness in Reno. Dell Rat Ron, my guest blogger and old high school and Shady Dell buddy, lived in Reno a few years ago. I can't wait for Stephen to start reporting in from his new burg.

    I'm next in line, dear Cherdo. Tomorrow will be my last visit to your blog this month as I need to make final preparations for my own move.

    Happy trails to you, Stephen, until we meet again, and happy Thursday, dear friend Cherdo!

    1. Stephen T. McCarthy is a character and hilarious, so I don't see any thing that you would have in common with him...oh, wait...nevermind.

      He cracks me up and I do like his Battle of the Bands. There's not enough music + humor blogs. It should have it's own genre - that doesn't include Tiny Tim, STMcC!

      Tomorrow is Mock Squid Soup day, but I might have to do two. :-)

      We'll get to yak at least once more before you depart and then I will have to roll along, lonely, morose, eyes turned down, weeping...you know how I get sans Shadyness.

      Speaking of trails - I gotta hit one. Happiest of T-days, Shadzilla.

    1. You'll be thankful you have the rules.

  7. Reno? It's no Vegas.
    On the flip side, it ain't no Camden, New Jersey, either.
    So, on balance? Sounds like a good place. Especially since they have sign-language-talking monkeys.

  8. Can't swear near a dead body? So holy poop it is a dead body will have to do? Damn, lets hope for no one croaking while playing checkers or getting aqua lifted.

  9. Lake Tahoe would be a little cool to go skinny dipping in.

    1. I know, right? And everything else that comes out of Hollywood has been true so I don't understand the change.

  11. Excellent tips! I would be very careful when swearing at a corpse or in front of one. It is my first impulse:)

  16. This is great. I don't think he saw it. If you haven't already left him a note on his blog, do it. He will LOVE this:)

  17. This was seriously funny. BTW there is a nude beach on Lake Tahoe (but apparently only the locals know about it), so, you can skinny dip in the lake, but be careful it's cold, you might freeze your bazongas off.

  19. CHERDO ~
    Just now saw this. I'm in a Sparks library, near Reno, near my Seniors' Mobile Home Park where I am in the process of becoming the Cosmo Kramer of this Old Folks' Joint. No Internet service yet on my own PC but the library is free for one hour.

    LOVED THIS! THANKS! Will visit again soon'z ah can.

    Got it! No cursing around myself, as I'm a dead body.

    FUN FACT: When I was 'bout 13 years old, on vacation with my parents and in a small motor boat rented at Lake Tahoe, my Pa says, "Look at the size of that fish!" You Know Who leaned over the side of the boat to get a look. And you know what happened next.

    I was a good swimmer, but when I broke the surface of Lake Tahoe (way out toward the middle of it) I was already turning blue and could only dog-paddle to save my life. Pa took one look at me and KNEW it hadn't been funny. He fished me out of the Lake and into the fishing boat, and I used that incident as leverage for bargaining for my way about the next 30 years! "Whaddaya mean 'No'? Pa, you remember the time when you..."

    Thanks to everyone for the nice things said. Things going good so far, and hopefully Shecky Shady Shaft is also having good fortune with his move.

    Monkey see, Monkey (gotta) go. But I'll be Bach or Beethoven (or Amaduh-- Amaduh-- ...well, see 'Sneakin' In The Movies' from 'Hollywood Shuffle').

    2. So far it's been great... except the beer is warm and the women are cold.

      Got books scattered and strewn across most floors of my trailer--- er, I mean... my mobile home. Lotta work to do, no Internet service yet but I'll return when I has it.

      [Monkey] signing off for now...
