Sunday's drive up your blog… with Ramblin' Rooster

The official blog of

After the Super 8

with 13 comments

I don’t know if you read Sickdays by Alantru, but it’s fantabulous. His latest blog is the hilarious conclusion to a not-so-wonderful sales, road trip. Check it out:


Anyway, the last line says, “Once you’ve been thrown out of a Super 8, there’s really nowhere left to go.” Normally I would never argue with Alan, but I couldn’t resist. Without further ado, I give you:


Where to Go After Super 8:


– Motel 6

– Denny’s

-Wal-Mart for a fake mustache to return to the Super 8 as Bob Carpuss

-Your parents house to ask for a “do over”

-Your dealer’s trailer to “reload the meth pouch”

-Downtown to panhandle, you already look broke and broken

-Strip Club

-Across the street for last call

-Mailbox baseball

-24 hour supermarket for improvised Olympics

-Under the bridge for some “Space Truckin”

-The red light district to see if Shantel is still working

-Down by the Missouri River to bury Clark’s mysteriously dead body


-To a very dark place inside your mind that takes years to come out of

-Off the deep end

-On a drinking binge that leaves everyone satisfied with their question of “Can a liver really explode”

-Running naked through the streets



-Into the arms, (or front legs) of the first sheep you see

-Back to the drawing board

-Where the road meets the horizon

-To La-La Land

-Your quite place

-Your safe place

-Into vivid fantasies of torture and dismemberment

-On the internet to read Sickdays


Egg On!

  1. So many fabulous and hilarious options!!!


    Many thanks, RR, you’re a scholar, a gentlemen, and, I might add, one funny Ramblin’ Rooster. You just made the trip totally worthwhile.

    Cheers – and Egg On!

    • alantru, for both comments I’m flattered that you’d consider me to be more than one man. Oh, you didn’t mean that? Oh, then I’m not flattered. They don’t want you to edit your comments because nobody cares, this is 2009, grammar and English and structure and stuff is like… like… not so important. Please tune in tomorrow for “Why We Can’t Edit Our Own Comments” or “Alan Gives Me All My Blog Ideas”. Thanks for rockin’ in style!

  2. “Gentleman” — that is.

    Sigh… Why can’t we edit your own comments?

    (Hmm, think I know where this might be going!)

  3. Vivid fantasies of torture and dismemberment? Remind me to bring along my Huey Lewis and the News albums.

    Fundamental Jelly knows what I’m talking about.

    • Capitalist Lion Tamer, torture? Dismemberment? How about Duets? Gwyneth Paltrow and Huey Lewis (Hollywood Pictures, 2000). Rated ‘R’ not because of inappropriate material in the movie, but because they knew anyone in the theatre would inevitably start screaming non-stop, full-flavor obscenities at the screen. At least that’s what is says here in my ole trusty ‘Handbook of Karaoke Movies To Commit Suicide To”. Thanks for the link and commenting.

  4. Your list is full of intriguing possibilities. I’m a woman who appreciates choices and options.

    I think I’d choose Denny’s first, though. I’d need a Moons Over My Hammy to get over being thrown out of the Super 8. But after that, who knows……..?

    • madamebitters, that’s actually very good thinking. You’ll want a full stomach to take on anything else from that list. Nothing sucks more than going to jail on an empty stomach. Nice to have your comments, thank you.
