I’m Art Kumbalek and man oh manischewitz what a world, ain’a? So listen, here’s a little story my buddy Little Jimmy Iodine told me the other day that I think even the kids might enjoy: Pinocchio’s girlfriend says to him, “This sucks. Every time we make love I get splinters.”

I’m Art Kumbalek and man oh manischewitz what a world, ain’a? So listen, all the hubbub and hullabaloo down yonder recently in Arizona (state nickname “Apache State”) reminds me of a quote from the Union Civil War general, an Irish guy by the name of Philip Sheridan: “If I owned Texas and Hell, I would rent Texas...

I’m Art Kumbalek and man oh manischewitz what a world, ain’a? So listen, it’s been an alarming couple three days for me, what the fock. To wit: Last Sunday, I took an early afternoon ride on the No. 30 downtown to the Grandly Store-Closed mall where I planned to kick the tires on a factory-new pair of midnight-black all-cotton Gold Toe men’s socks over by the Boston Store...

I’m Art Kumbalek and man oh manischewitz what a world, ain’a? So listen, I can’t whip out an essay for you’s this week on account that my buddy Little Jimmy Iodine has another birthday in a day or two; so’s rather than tell you for the umpteenth time about how the Republicans and their whitewashed Tea Party...

I’m Art Kumbalek and man oh manischewitz what a world, ain’a? So yeah, the current crop of Pulitzer Prizes got passed around the other day and wouldn’t you know, once again yours truly stands empty-handed, me oh my oh.

I’m Art Kumbalek and man oh manischewitz what a world, ain’a? So, Sarah Palin. Yeah, I’d cross party lines and bang her, bang her but good. To me, she is to Mamie Eisenhower what...

I’m Art Kumbalek and man oh manischewitz what a world, ain’a? So here we are, smack-dab in the first week of spring, that very special time of year when a young man’s fancy turns to getting his rocks off with whomever, whenever, wherever, as often as possible. And god bless the heartily...

I’m Art Kumbalek and man oh manischewitz what a world, ain’a? So listen, it occurred to me the other day that if I want to serve America’s Dairyland as its next governor or U.S. senator, or both what the fock, I better get my ass in gear, I kid you not.

I’m Art Kumbalek and man oh manischewitz what a world, ain’a? So I hear another Winter Olympics has come and gone and all I got to say is that if they don’t add competitive ice fishing for the next Games, forget about it. They could stand to add an extra event or two ’cause, cripes, it seemed every time I thought to tune in, it was the goddamn curling they were showing, what the fock...
