In last weeks shocking episode of NBC’s reality show The Apprentice, the entire Brother Jones staff was canned for a glaring lack of creativity.

The Comments

<{

Now wait a minute. I was sure I heard “You’re admired!”

Dennis Jones

…was that what that was? …well, I feel a lot better about it now…

Doug Jones

SocMo got a date with Robin on the way out though….

Doug Jones

I just love the way we are all giving the secret BrotherJones hand signal

Dennis Jones

…at that point we were willing to try anything…

Dennis Jones

…Socmo, (of course), could not remember the secret hand signal…

Don Jones

I guess our “Lynyrd Skynyrd” hearing was shining through there. I would’a swore I heard the Donald say, “Due to your glaring bald foreheads you’re fard!” (Arkansas translation)

Don Jones

Why are we dressing alike? Is that the official Brother Jones uniform?

Dennis Jones

Socmo’s idea…

Dennis Jones

…thats the last time we let him be project manager…

Dennis Jones

…at least Doug and I didn’t take his suggestion to wear funny hats into the boardroom… that didn’t work either…

Don Jones

If I come up and help you clean the house can I get a piece of apple cake?

Nick Jones Everybody

ok now that actually made me laugh outloud… maybe the creativity is coming back to the brojo site…. one suggestion…. MORE PODCASTS. Even if all you do is talk about sports you played in elementary school and cars you used to drive…. Ok well that was my one post for the month. I’m out of here.

Dennis Jones

…more PODCASTS… MORE PODCASTS… the pressure is just relentless… Don, I think it is time for you to unsheathe the musical podcast you have been holding in reserve that will embarrass Nick and Pete into not asking for any more PODCASTS…

Doug Jones

personally, I’d like a podcast with some golden oldies like, Begonji Boy, Bit ‘O Honey, Smelly Pirate song, Deerslayer Blues… and Alizarin Crimson… These should be shared with the world! cast them pods!

Dennis Jones

…well, uhmm… a couple of those would embarrass me and that wasn’t the idea here…

Don Jones

We would like to keep all humor and embarrassment directed at our visitors and our children. What are we… idiots wrapped in morons?

Pete Jones

hey pops, sorry to hear about that man…

Dennis Jones

…its ok, Pete… I will just keep on drawing funny pictures and hopefully we will be able to keep you in college…

Doug Jones

word is you are loading up your new website… when are you going to launch it?

Dennis Jones

shhhhh… nobodies supposed to know that…

Doug Jones

it’s STILL a secret… nobody really looks at this thing but you and me….

Dennis Jones

…you, me, and about a halfa Brazzillion of our closesest internet friends…

Doug Jones

You don’t actually believe those site stats do you?

Hey, I Won Something!

BibleAward

I just returned from my oldest son’s wedding in Baton Rogue, Louisiana and found an attractive red box sitting on my doorstep. Inside was a Platinum Book Award for the Read With Me Bible I did back in the early 90’s. It has officially sold over a million copies and apparently you get a heavy chunk of leaded crystal to prove it. Being a hockey player, I immediately strapped on a pair of inline skates, hoisted the trophy over my head and skated it around our neighborhood.

The Comments

Don Jones

WOO HOO!!! That will look awesome in the Brother Jones Indy trophy case. Congratulations!

Doug Jones

the trophy is OK, I guess…. but that box is FANTASTIC!

Jason Bourne

Congrats. Thats pretty cool… Can never have enough trophies.

Dennis Jones

Don Jones

Where’d you get that jersey? VooDoo Mart?

Doug Jones

I am imagining thunderous applause from the squirrels and rabbits as you skated through your neighborhood…

Don Jones

And a walking ovation from a few deer…

Roballoo!

Congratulations! You must be rich with all those royalties from all those sales coming in. Donald Trump must be envious of the fortune you’ve amassed.

Jason Bourne

Nothing like a victory stance with a silver hand…

Doug Jones

I’m glad to see from your picture that you did not get the big head from receiving this award. hey, point up into the sky and say “de plane… de plane… ”

Dennis Jones

…unfortunately, I tripped right after this picture was taken and two squirrels and an armadillo were injured…

Dan Lietha

So now it becomes the “Bleed with me Bible”? Congrads Dennis!

James

WOW, a Gretzky pose and the tongue hanging out of the mouth like Jordan…yep, you’re the man. Congrads D

Garth

Hey, I helped you win that award! I’m one of those million buyers! Congratulations! My kids and I have really enjoyed it!

Josh

Congrats on that! I, too, am one of the million. I don’t have kids, though—just love the illustrations.

Bucky Jones

Dennis, congratulations!!!

Emily Albright

Dennis, We love this Bible! Isaac is using it for his Quiet Time right now, and he loves it! Congrats!
