Blind Guy In A Bar:

A blind guy on a bar stool shouts to the bartender, "Wanna hear a blonde joke?"

In a hushed voice, the guy next to him says, "Before you tell that joke, you should know something." Our bartender is blonde, the bouncer is blonde. I'm a 6' tall, 200 lb black belt. The guy sitting next to me is 6'2", weighs 225, and he's a rugby player. The fella to your right is 6'5" pushing 300 and he's a wrestler. Each one of us is blonde. Think about it, Mister.

Do you still wanna tell that joke?"

The blind guy says, "Nah, not if I'm gonna have to explain it five times."

Lounging at the movies: Sahara and After The Sunset

Two films both featuring a hot Latino babes. This should be enough for most guys to see these films. But for those who actually need someone to tell them about these films I am graciously reviewing them.

Sahara: Starring Matthew McConaughey, Penélope Cruz, Steve Zahn.

If adventure has a new name I would have to say I would prefer it to be Penelope. But since the story line is based around Dirk Pitt (McConaughey) I will let it slide although I would have to say if I was, I would. Dirk Pitt and Al Giodino (Zahn) are life long buddies who are involved with treasure hunting with an obsession for a phantom treasure lost during the Civil War. They cross paths with Dr. Eva Rojas (Cruz) in Africa who is researching a deadly disease that is quickly spreading out of control. Good action adventure with two strikingly good looking people laced with the funny and always entertaining Steve Zahn. Although there is no gratuitous nudity there is plenty of adventure and edge of your seat action.

After The Sunset: Pierce Brosnan, Salma Hayek, Woody Harrelson and Don Cheadle.

Retired master thieves Max Burdett (Brosnan) and Lola Cirillo (Hayek) are confronted by a fairly pissed off FBI agent , Stan Loyd (Harrelson), who claims they are going to steal a rare diamond from a tour boat docked in the town where they now reside. Stan sure of a heist in the works tries to catch them in the act. Lola's main concern is to get married now that they are retired and Max is persuaded to help the local thugs because of his reputation. I would go into the intricate plot of deception but as I said before Salma Hayek is in this film and at one point mostly nude. Since they live somewhere in the tropics there are also scenes of her fairly scantily clad and the director takes full advantage of cleavage for your viewing pleasure. Enough said.

Nothing is what it seems but everyone gets what they want, almost.

The B. K. Lounge Eats: Hot Black Bean and Rice Salad

Spring has sprung and salads are coming back into the menu. This salad is quick and tasty and has the added benefit of having beans in it. We all the fun beans can be even around the stuffiest of crowds. Anyway spring this on someone who loves to eat for it is sure to please. You can use leftover rice if you like or you can make the rice as described below.

• 2 C. vegetable broth or water
• 1 C. rice
• 1 T. white wine vinegar
• 2 T. extra-virgin olive oil
• 1/4 tsp. chili powder
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 1/2 tsp. thyme
• 1/2 tsp. oregano
• 1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
• 1 C. black beans, cooked or canned
• 1 red pepper, seeded and sliced
• 1 Jalapeno, seeded and minced
• 2 T. fresh cilantro, chopped
• 2 Tablespoons diced onion

Cook the rice in broth or water until done or use leftover rice if you like. In the meantime have a cocktail and revel in the moment of creation and then combine the white wine vinegar, olive oil, chili powder, garlic, thyme, oregano and dijon mustard in a bowl and mix well. Mix the cooked rice with the black beans and peppers and then pour sauce over it and mix lightly but thoroughly. Chill for 1 hour or not and serve.

This salad is awesome for dinner parties or outdoor BBQ and can be adapted to whatever spices and heat level you desire by adding more chili powder or even olives. Experiment, you only live once depending on your religious beliefs. And if you believe in reincarnation, remember they may not have beans when you come back which would be a terrible loss.
