Luke Swank and Louie Anderson

Diary Entry For September 21, 2009 Email Shortarmguy at
On Sunday, we took in a family golf game which will most likely be our last of the year judging from all the fallen leaves we had to navigate around on the course. It’s so hard to believe Fall is here and that winter is coming!! What the hell happened to summer?
Grandma Linda joined us for the golf game but forgot her clubs, balls, tees, and shoes. She did have a great time sitting on the bench playing with her water bottle, though.
On Saturday night, Luke received his wish from the Wishes and More Organization and had the opportunity to perform on stage with comedy God, Louie Anderson! More details about Luke’s wish can be found here. Louie was an extremely nice man and met with our family before the show began. He gave Luke some suggestions on how to do comedy and signed T-Shirts for both of the boys. He even offered us some soda pop before we went back to our seats which we all thought was a very kind gesture!
The Wishes and More people didn’t miss a touch even arranging for us to be driven around in a limousine back and forth to the comedy club.
Greg was our driver and a great guy! He told us interesting stories about previous passengers and took us out for ice cream at Dairy Queen after the show. Avery has informed us that he has identified a new career aspiration for when he gets older. He wants to be a limo driver!
The boys just loved riding in the limo! They drank Sprite from champagne glasses, played with the fancy lights, and danced to the music. I think if they could have chosen between riding in the limo all night and going to the comedy club, they would have had a tough time getting out of the car!
This is Scott Hanson and he’s a legend in the Minneapolis Comedy Scene. He owns the Comedy Gallery Comedy Clubs which have been in several locations in the Twin Cities over the years. Many of the biggest names in the business have performed at his clubs. Scott was instrumental in helping Wishes and More to make Luke’s wish come true. Luke gave him a Wishes and More hat to say “Thank You” and Scott responded with “I don’t think that will fit on my head!” What a funny guy!
We didn’t have a lot of notice that we were going to be performing, so we did the same routine we did at the Wishes and More Ball in February. We figured it would be easier to practice that one again rather than try to come up with a new act in three days. The crowd seemed pretty receptive to it so I think we made the right call.

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen Louie perform. I forgot how funny he is! I don’t normally laugh at comedians because I’ve seen so much standup in my life time, but I found myself laughing out loud quite a bit! It was really a great, great night for the Shortarmguy Family!

Great Taxi Rides
Cyclone Crunch cereal is now available at some grocery stores in central Iowa. The cereal sells at Fareway stores for $2.99 a box. People who have tried the cereal tell KCCI that it tastes a lot like Captain Crunch cereal. The red and gold colored box features ISU athletics and offers fun facts about the Clone program. DISCLAIMER: Fareway recommends to fans that they eat Cyclone Crunch out of the box, as it is nearly impossible to get it into a Bowl. FDA warns that there is a serious risk of choking, especially towards the end of the box.

Jokes of the Week

The Mechanic and the Cardiologist

A mechanic was removing a cylinder-head from the motor of a Harley motorcycle when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop.
The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come and take a look at his bike when the mechanic shouted across the Garage,
‘Hey Doc, want to take a look at this?’

The cardiologist, a bit surprised, walked over to where the mechanic was working on the motorcycle. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked,

‘So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take the valves out, repair any damage, and then put them back in, and when I finish, it works just like new. So how come I make $39,675 a year and you get the really big bucks ($1,695,759) when you and I are doing basically the same work?’

The cardiologist paused, smiled and leaned over, then whispered to the mechanic…

‘Try doing it with the engine running.”


A husband and wife were sitting watching a TV program about psychology and mixed emotions when he turned to his wife and said, “Honey, that’s a bunch of crap; I bet you can’t tell me anything that will make me happy and sad at the same time.”

She said, “You have the biggest penis of all your friends.”

White tigers get new mommy! Beautiful!


When hurricane Hannah separated two white tigers from their mother, Anjana came to the Rescue. Anjana, a chimp at TIGERS in South Carolina, became surrogate mom and playmate to the cubs, even helping with bottle feeding, according to The Sun. But here’s the truly amazing part: This is something Anjana does all the time, having helped raised leopard and lion cubs on several occasions.

These pics are truly gorgeous!!
