Dumbass News Is Closed for Bidness



I don't know where to begin, really.

But I do know where to end.

After today, I will not be blogging anymore. For a while at least. My initial thought is to take a month or two off then come back as stoopid as ever. As of right now, I can't say when, or even if, I will resume writing Dumbass News again. Some time in the future I may just post videos of The World's Best Dumbassery on Dumbass Tube. I simply don't know.

There are a million reasons why I should/could continue with blogging, but there is one reason why I can't - mental health, i.e., bipolar depression, PTSD, ADHD, etc. (Yes I am taking my medication and keeping Doctors appointments and all that stuff, but I am still a work in progress.)

All these Alphabet Soup Diagnoses have really messed up thought process. Think of a bowl of spaghetti. That's what the ruminations bouncing around in my brain must look like - chaotic, helter skelter and otherwise jumbled to shit. This is certainly not conducive to producing Written World Class Dumbassery.

While my battle with depression has been an ongoing struggle for more than three decades, I am now at a point where it's not just an "inconvenience", it is my constant companion. I am actually a little bit concerned about it.

I could go into greater detail but I am not gonna turn this post into a "woe is me" whinefest, so suffice it to say that I have some work to do so I can get back to being an abnormal Human Bean.

If for some reason you ever need a Daily Dose of Dumbassery, there are over 1000 Dumbass News stories on my Pinterest page. 

You can also find some damn good bloggers in the left sidebar under "Dumbasses I Read". 

I can't thank y'all enough for all the support you have given me over the last four and a half years, but please know that I have been humbled by it.

Hasta la vista.

Dumbasses.

  2. Thanks, Simply! You are correct. The blog will still be up, just not updated for a while.

    See what happens when your mind is like a bowl of spaghetti?

    1. This is what's known as "putting a cap on" your site.
      Where it simply remains in its present form indefinitely.

      Thanks, amigo! I'll get shit sorted out eventually and probably be back in a few weeks. I may even write a post some day about what a "day in the life" of a guy like me is like. Talk about Dumbasery!

  7. I can tell you from experience it's smart to take care of yourself. I'm down to once a week posting and fighting my doctor's advice to start antidepressants up again. I wish I had any advice for either of us. I wish I could buy you a beer. I hope to see you back soon. I'll follow your YouTube site. I'll have to carry ear buds around but I'm sure it will be worth it!
    Later. Not good bye, just "Til later"

  10. Well that sucks. You are one of the best, Toby, one of my favorite places to visit, one of my favorite people currently living inside my computer and I am sorry to hear that your brain is a bowl of spaghetti. I hope you don't close up shop altogether, sign off and go rogue. We'll wait for you until you get your shit together and come back to hang out with us. Until then, my best to you and Mrs. Dumbass. Be well, my friend.

    1. Teri....Wow! I don't know what to say. Except that you need to re-decorate the inside of your computer. I'll leave my logo hanging on the wall so you don't forget me. Your support has been invaluable and sincerely appreciated.

      Hugs to you.

  11. Fearless Leader, you will be missed!

    But I totally get why you want to take a break --- whether it's a temporary one or a permanent one.

    You need to do what is best for YOU and Mrs. Fearless Leader, though, so I'm sure your regular readers will TOTALLY understand.

    If they don't, they're stoopider than you think.

    Those dumbasses!

  14. Tobe - you're champ and a friend. Wishing you the best, thanking you for a thousand laughs, and hoping you'll drop me a line at some point so we can commiserate as messicans.

  15. Toby! Oh my. I'm so sorry to read this. Admittedly, because you know I'm not a big dumbass news girl, I just missed YOU. Yes, selfishly at first... "Hey, that's strange that TMan didn't retweet that..." but, I was ok with that. Then, I just wondered how you were and where you were... and I came a huntin'.

    I'm so sorry to read that you're struggling, but so happy that you're taking care of yourself, and taking some time to just chill. Life is hard enough, without feeling obligated to things that aren't as important as you and those you love. So, my fearless friend... I hope you're reading these comments, because clearly you are loved and supported. Take care! xox
