The iPhone Hardliner

Written by Rudy on September 27, 2011 - 7:44 am -

This Rudy Report is best enjoyed on your smartphone with a glass of beer right next to you at the Oktoberfest in Munich, today on "National Crush a Can Day."

For some, purchasing the phone can be a life-changing decision, like for this young lady right here...

Peyton Manning will not play at all during this season due to a neck injury. Major League Baseball officials are planning to add two more wild card games, determined in one-game playoffs to the postseason. The New Jersey Nets will be renamed the Brooklyn Nets (not sure which name is worse). By the way, the Yankees lost against Tampa Bay, while the Mets lost against Cincinnati. Boston also lost, which means that they are now tied with the Rays in the wild-card race. There was also Monday Night Football, featuring two teams that will not make it to the Super Bowl: The Cowboys and the Redskins. So who cares who won?

Staying Out Of Trouble

Written by Rudy on September 26, 2011 - 8:11 am -

With the election year coming up, Democrats, Republicans, and the Tea Party have all urged Rudy to run for President, but why would Rudy want to move into a smaller house that is currently occupied by low income minorities, today on "National Pancake Day"? It would take months to renovate... Anyways, when you learn a foreign language, it's important that you use words in complete sentences. That's the only way for you to learn the meanings of words. Otherwise, you could be in trouble...

The Mets lost against the Phillies.

As you know, Steve Jobs resigned as CEO of Apple after he had no more source of inspiration for his creativity, while the Rudy Report was on its annual summer break, but that's really not our problem, today on "National Beach Clean-Up Day."

Well, try to use real life situations to get your work out in...

Art is a beautiful thing. It makes us appreciate immaterial things in life, such as $100 million Picassos. Contrary to popular belief, everyone can be an artist. All you need to do is follow some simple guidelines...
