It's very hard to find a decent slice of pizza in Chester County - until now. Gilly Norris presents his review,
"It was beautiful. I walked into Jack's Pizza at the Whiteland Towne Center and there it was - the perfect slice of vegetable pizza. Topped with roasted tomatoes, onions, peppers and olives - it was pure beauty."
"As the Spanish station played soccer on the tv and a 2 month old slept on the counter next to the industrial meat slicer, my pizza was warmed."
"I requested a Pepsi and proceeded to my car - walking at a faster than usual pace than usual. As I passed onlookers, I held the bag up to their faces and smiled and nodded in a creepy way. I got into my car. This is where I took this photo of the Exton slice. It's crunchy texture was pure heaven. I give it 10 That Blue Yak stars out of 10."
Good Pizza is indeed hard to find in Chester County when one yearns for the Jersey shore's Mack and Manco Pizza . Here are a few local standout pizza eateries in Chester County (Exton - West Chester area):
Jack's Pizza - (610) 280-9490 / 135 W Lincoln HwyExton, PA 19341 (Whiteland Towne Center). See review above.
Bravo Pizza - (610) 594-1599 / 123 E. Swedesford Road in Exton (in shopping center with Giant). They're not greedy with the slice - very large portions.
Las Vegas Pizza - (610) 692-4785 / 515 E Gay StWest Chester, PA 19380 . (Right there on good ole' Gay Street). The key to eating this pizza is to wait about 2 minutes after it comes out of the oven or it will slide off the crust like soup. Tip: Don't talk to the 17 year old Henderson High greasers that hang out there during the day - they're dangerous and carry switch blades.

Ball Buster by Mego. This commercial almost leaves you speechless with such great moments:
- It's a "family game"
- "..and for adults, it's exciting..." (as the narrator lowers his voice)
- "You're a BAAWWWLLLL BUSTER!"
- "It's easy like checkers...but exacting like pool"
If my parents ever scooted my sister and me away so they could play this piece of crap game, I'd be on the phone calling the authorities.
OK, you need to watch it again and watch the frustration on the father's face and the eyebrow raising concentration on the mother's face.

That Blue Yak tracked down the bitter Teddy "Curls" Redmond concerning the #3 Crappy Toy:
"Frickin' plaid pants! That's right - plaid fickin' pants! This is me in the slinky commercial. Do you think maybe I would have been given a slinky as a gift for Christmas? N0! I was given a crappy pair of polyester plaid pants similar to the one's I wore in my award winning Slinky commercial. Not the actual pants worn in the commercial - no, that would have been too perfect. Instead, I was given green and beige plaid slacks with an inferior zipper and ridiculous leg taper that made my ass look like a God Damn light bulb. Thanks for nothing Ridley Hill Orphanage and Work Camp! I'll see you in Hell!"

That Blue Yak would like to give this month's hero award to Phoenixville's Barto Pool and Spa for the courage to put a huge frickin' blue blowup gorilla outside of their business.
While neighboring businesses cowardly choose to announce sales with boring signs and banners, the fine folk at Barto use a big assed ape. Are they afraid that some customers might be afraid of the ape and not enter inside to see the potential discounts on pool and spa supplies? I do not know.
I'm sure there was concern that some potential customers might worry that there are more apes inside and their lives would be in danger if they entered. I'm sure the decision to inflate the "monster sale" ape was debated for months by the employees. ...we will never know. We also don't know if the Main Street business is getting pressure to remove the ape. We hope not - because as we all know, if you can't advertise spa and pool supplies with a big ole' balloon ape, the terrorists have won.

That Blue Yak's Milford Dean Darlak attended the 29th Annual Long's Park Art & Craft Festival in Lancaster - and boy did he have a good time.
Now you're talking. I was all set to enjoy a 100% Angus beef hot dog from Tri-County Barbecue Catering but when I got up to the counter, I noticed it was a foot long. I was too embarrassed to order it because people might have thought I was a gay so I settled for the hamburger. It was pretty tasty.

Yes, it's been 30 years since the death of Elvis, but how many years since father Vernon Presley made this crappy sign? On a recent trip to Graceland we took a picture of this simple sign.
The sign hangs on the garage/shed-like "office" that sits in the backyard of Graceland. What or who inspired Vernon to make this sign? The tone, red letters and capital letters indicate his rage. But the pencil marks that were put in place to keep the letters straight show his patience. The unerased guidelines though indicate sloppiness.
Many questions remain. Why didn't he plan the letters more carefully so they wouldn't be all squished in at the end of the line as seen on the words EMPLOYEES and BUSINESS? How did this dummy make no spelling errors?
Who were the non employee loafers? Were they wondering hillbillies? Delivery men? And how many versions did Vern Presley make of the sign before crumpling it up and starting anew?
Was Vernon Presley tired of sitting at his metal desk and lining up pencils so he was looking for a more important task? We may never know - unless we dig up his body - located about 30 yards away and ask the man . But he would not answer. Because he is dead.

A group of heterosexual men packed their bags and flew to Reno yesterday for what they think will be another extended weekend of beer, cards and farting on each other. What they don't know is that the group's organizer, Shawn McClure- (father of two and living a lie) is about to make his move and "try some stuff".
The tradition of an extended weekend with the boys started about 10 years ago and was informally named "YAG" (Young Arrogant Guys). Good time has been had by all at these drink and laugh fests. Last year however, several of the guys started to think Shawn was getting "a bit weird".
Greg Green, one of the holdouts this year explains,
"We're always goofing around and making gay comments to each other but Shawn always took it a bit far. It's hard to explain, but it's like when you're at a urinal and there's some dude next to you and you KNOW something ain't right. It's a gut feeling."
The additional non attendees this year, Jimmy Steinberger, Mike Polaski , Ted Taylor and Len Carnes gathered a few months ago and exchanged stories. Let's just say that all the pieces fell into place. The following is a condensed list that was compiled from a free style brainstorming session entitled, "reasons Shawn McClure is probably gay":
- "He came up with the name YAG - spelled backwards is 'GAY' ."
- "I woke up one night and he was standing over my bed, applying chap stick and whispering, 'That's it, that's it'".
- "We went to a canyon to shoot pistols one year and he kept coming up behind me and putting his arms around my body trying to show me how to hold the gun - you know, the way you do with a chick if you're trying to teach her to golf."
- "Whenever there's a guy on TV that's a guy that chicks are into, he looks at you and says something like, 'Zac Efron is such a pretty boy, don't you think....Mike, Mike, hey Mike....Mike don't you think that Zac Efron is one of those pretty boys?' Almost like he's throwing feelers out there."
- "One time, Rick was walking by with a towel on and Dan grabbed him and joking around was like, 'C'mon Rick you know you want it'. We were all cracking up but when I looked over at McClure, he was eating this rib and just staring...slowly eating his last rib. I'm no lip reader but he was slowly saying, 'KNOW....YOU....WANT....IT'. Then slowly went back to eating the rib. It was like the frickin' gay Hannibal Lechter or something."
- "One time he was reading Sports Illustrated - but it was UPSIDE DOWN! When he went to the bathroom I walked over and behind the Sports Illustrated was the American Girl Magazine. And this is where it gets weird. I think he actually brought it there. The subscription address was scribbled out, but I'm 99% sure that it was his work address"!
- "He was putting sun tan lotion on Mike's back one one time - which sorry Mike, you may be gay too - and it was like a God damn ritual. First, he stood behind Mike and put the lotion on his hands but kind of rubbing his wrist together a bit -almost like he was about to savor something that he's been waiting a LONG TIME FOR. He then starts putting the lotion on and the look on his face is kind of like the look Rick gets when he's eating something really good. It's like he's holding back saying, this feels SOOOOO good'. Then about 30 seconds into the rubbing he leans over a little closer to Mike and says, 'Wow, you sure are tense'. And to put icing on the cake, he has his sunglasses dangling out of his mouth the whole time."
- One time we found a pair of underwear in Rick's kitchen drawer that Rick uses as a pot holder - which is a whole different story in itself, but the next day - that underwear was missing. I was like, 'Hey, what happened to that underwear?" Just then, Ted walks in and says, 'Who the hell was putting things in their car at 4:30 in the morning?". I look over at Shawn and he looked guilty as hell. He did the ole eye shift to the right - then to the left - then said, 'Hey what's that over there?' as if he was looking at something in the other room. He then quickly got up and left the room. It was pretty freaky. I think he knew I was on to him."
The YAG weekend continues until Monday. We wish you all well.

It's July 6 and another unfunny movie is now in theaters. It's name, License to Wed. Without actually seeing the film, That Blue Yak's movie man Franklin Yearsley will list his top "supposed to be funny" lines that will probably happen in the movie.
1) Robin William (in Southern accent):
"Y'all in love but this just ain't gonna fly (turns head as if speaking to wife) MAW..GET MY SHOTGUN" (then, big smile and talking in regular accent) I am a kidder.
2) Robin Williams (in feminine, gay accent)
"Honey you want to say 'I Do" but those shoes with that dress is saying 'I don't'. "
3) Fat side kick kid (while rolling eyes):
"The Lord sure does travel in mysterious ways."
4) Jim from the Office (almost cursing but then sees Robin Williams):
"HOLY shhhhh........shammy...holy shimmy..has anyone seen my holy shimmy? I...was about to wash my car."
5) Fat side kick kid:
"I told them (shrugs shoulders) but they never listen"
6) Jim from the Office:
"Is it too late to convert to Judaism?"
7) Jim from the Office
"In the name of the father, son....CHECK PLEASE!"
8) Robin Williams (in John Wayne accents)
"You're gonna meet me at confessional at sun down partner and don't forget to bring you sins."
9) Jim from the Office (in confessional confessing sins for first time but unknowingly talking to fat side kick kid instead of Robin Williams")
"Well, I guess there was that time that I snuck into the Cubs game. Wait, does that count as a sin?
10) Fat side kick kid (hiding in confessional)
"For an angel, I sure do feel like a little devil."
That is all.

It was 1974. The dancers were dressed allllll funky and what not. They was doin' their thang. But WHO were those dancers? What were their names. I think we can all agree that it was racism. THAT BLUE YAK will now give these young dancers their proper credit by naming them.
They will now not only have a face but they will have a name. Names that they should where with pride - not figuratively, but literally, on large, bedazzled, name tag buttons. These name tags should be worn at ALL TIMES. Now, enjoy getting down with these brothers as they do their stuff , followed by their new names and a fun game.
Now to have some fun. Gather your friends and yell out the names of the dancers as they do their thing. Pretend you know them and you're all friends. Make up stories about the dancing adventures you've all had together.
Did you perhaps solve crimes with your new dancing friends? Maybe you did.
Were you all asked by the Mayor of your town to pitch in and help with the fight against litter? And then just when you thought you lost the battle you guys got the whole town dancing and then everyone learned a lesson about litter? And themselves? I don't know. The only limit to your adventures is your imagination.
We now give you their new non-slave names:
- Slipper Band Man
- Sir Frogalicious
- Bandana the Tank
- Backstroke Afromatic
- Bus Token Scooper Slim
- The Rich Little of Raj Thomas
- Blue Trouser Howser
- Candy Cane Calf Carl
- The Admiral of Cool
- Denim Da Hip
- (WARNING: This is some white dude disguised as a black dude. He has not earned a name)
- Bell Bottom Swell Bottom
- Tyron "Dease coals is hot but dis lady be fine) Lincoln
- Sidewalkin' Ice Guy
- Sir Twirls a Lot
- Goat Leg the Inner City Centaur
- The Butt
- Bizniss Man Tight
- Jiu-Jitzu Jammin' Jim (aka Robo-martial-artso)
- Gymnastic the Bombastic Flim Flam Lover Man
- Brother Soul Sam the Anti-Man
Repeat and Enjoy.
WARNING: Do not repeat more than three times. Do not go into "bad areas" of the city trying to make new "real" friends.

Either way, it gives one a warm feeling inside. Enjoy it, followed by THAT BLUE YAK janitors answering the question - "What the hell was that about?"
Carl Washington - "Oh man that was nice. Right in the KISSER! I know she said something about either her man or momma or Auntie- no other reason"
Gibs Forrester - "It looks like they're in an airport or something. Probably terrorist stuff or something - I don't know."
Franklin B. Haulk Jr. - "Dat good lady punch."

Friday, May 18, 2007
It's official, THAT BLUE YAK has picked the top 4 blogs posted on THE AUSSIEJOURNO Blog.
We would like to say, "we're all winners" - but we're not. Frankly, there are a few terrible, terrible blogs. You know who you are and we encourage you to suppress what you see as your creative outlet and consider just watching tv. If you REALLY can't help yourselves from writing, we encourage you to consider the alternative to blogging:
1) Write your thoughts on paper
2) Read the thoughts (sorry, no sharing)
3) Throw the paper in the trash.
4) Return to couch for tv viewing.
Without further delay, the winners in descending order are:
TIN FOIL METAL: Shrink Wrapped Scream - Interesting blog. The link here features a young lad who is a dead ringer for a Young Sly Stallone with a dash of Liza.
BRONZE METAL: Bob's Diary -Very Special. Just as McGlinch has offered to draw requests, we're hoping that Bob will also take requests. Our request is to see B.T.Bear dressed as an evil clown and "busted" by someone as he hides in the fridge and gnaws on a chicken carcass.
SILVER METAL Copper Stiletto Sexy without being sassy, artsy without being fartsy.
GOLD METAL McGlinch - This young whippersnapper is very talented and we appreciate his never ending drawings of freaks.
We ask that McGlinch print out the Curling Trophy featured in this blog entry and with a sharpie, write:
AussieJourno - "THAT BLUE YAK Award Winner 2007 - I am the best, and everyone else is the worst".
We ask that you then get a crappy frame from Michael's Crafts, put said picture in frame and hang it on your wall with pride.
We also would like to request that McGlinch whips up a picture of himself accepting the award at THAT BLUE YAK headquarters since he will not be invited for real since he has been banned from our properties.

First of all, our deepest apologies. As we mentioned in our last blog entry, THAT BLUE YAK had temporarily closed in preparation for the Aussie Award Guest Celebration - then, nothing. In preparation, our staff's dancing and singing skills developed so greatly, that we were actually attacked by members of the Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Chester County (PA) and were held hostage since.
Frankly, it was very frightening. The troupe of actors tortured us with threats, mind manipulation and a never ending performance of the Pirates of Penzance.
Their goal: to recruit our top notch talent to their two bit acting troupe.
The result: Eleven suicides by THAT BLUE YAK staff members and thirteen deaths to members of the Gilbert and Sullivan troupe.
The Compromise: That Blue Yak has agreed to donate Stanley Burke - from finance - to the G & S Society. He will remain with them as a slave. We have also agreed to purchase the remaining 123 "Trial By Jury" promotional key chains from their 2001 summer stock series.
In return, the G & S Society has vowed never to set foot on our property again.
So, we're back. Please stay tuned for the Aussie Blog results.
