No Comment!

Sometimes, you just can't escape the dreaded cellphone yapper......

Truth is, cellphone manners are getting worst.  Saw one prominent landlord at Char one afternoon just blaring away on his cellphone as loud as he could.  My personal favorite is Facetiming in the locker room.  Yup, some dudes aren't content to just talk as loud as they can on their cellphones about useless stuff.  Some of them now like to Facetime away in the locker room with their girlfriends.  About time to start pushing back.   Where is Andy Rooney when we need him most?

Perhaps readers should start sending in video of people who have no cellphone manners.  JJ could post one a week.

I wish restaurants would add a "no cellphones" section.

Was at one distinguished (sarcasm) Jackson restaurant in the afternoon a few months ago. A prominent Jackson landlord was sitting there, yapping away on his cellphone as loud as he could. Of course management said nothing to him.

I doubt you will publish this (maybe with that caveat), but maybe you aren't aware that when you walk around a certain downtown grocery store with your hooked on earpieces, that everyone within 20ft. proximity can hear what you are discussing......and to whom you are discussing it with.

Your yapper days are numbered

My favorite has to be the women who walk around in the grocery store yapping on their phones to somebody on the other end who must be holding the shopping list.

16 ounce? Contadina? No, they don't have that. Yes. Hunts in 12. Or there's 8 oz by Mexicali Rose. Me either. Must be new. Which spaghetti? Rolaids? Wait til I get over there. I'll check. Yes. Which bottled water? You said we had plenty of eggs. Girl! I'm not buying those...he'll never pay me back if I do.

"Of course management said nothing to him."

Forty dollar tab and an eight dollar tip VS your discomfort. You figure it out.

Facetiming on speaker in Wal-Mart. I've seen many people just wandering the aisles chatting about nothing important (I know, because I can hear their conversation).

Worse are people who facetime in restaurants. I sat one booth over from a woman in McAllister's who was talking about her hair weave the whole time we were there. Everyone in the restaurant could hear her, too.

I like that some people feel that they have to FaceTime while driving.......added bonus for running red lights while face timing

I sell cardboard funeral fans for six bucks. On one side it says "SHUT THE HELL UP" and on the other side it says "USE YOUR DAMNED BLINKER". Available in school colors: JSU, MSU, UM, USM.

I'll be in front of the Madison 51 Kroger, Sunday from 1 to 5.

Still better than the people who look at their social media or text and drive. I dont care if you are stopped ar a red light. Put the phone down unless you are a passenger.

I hope you are serious because I'm gonna come buy a couple. See you Sunday PM!

If someone is Facetiming in the locker room, it's your duty to walk by in camera view, butt naked, repeatedly. Extra points if you squat, or bend over at the waist.

Last week my husband and I asked to change tables at two different restaurants (not fast food or "family style") because little ones were screaming. I'll take the phone talkers every time. What is wrong with these parents that they don't know to remove a disruptive child?

Maybe guys are facetiming in the locker room to keep the nasty old men from standing or sitting around naked. Never understood why old men like to do that.

It annoys me to know end with the facetiming in public. It is so rude. Have a headset if you must do it. Public Facetiming is almost as bad as public smoking.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
