Teh Squeaky Wheel
Humpity humpity humpity…*ahem*
Maaaaan…teh organic produce ladies sure have some chutzpah; sorry they weren’t funny. Didn’t they didn’t even have a cockamamie, unintentionally humorous reason why hosting them gratis every week would somehow benefit KFH&BBQ?
OTOH, congrats on acquiring teh libertarian Sno-Cone folks; from what you wrote, I presume they’ll be using your kitchen to make syrups. I don’t suppose they have “appropriate” names for their flavors, do they? (I’m guessing they’d rather sell product than “message” their customers…)
Other than that, nuthin’.
The bullshit re the Missouri State Fair / Obama rodeo clown is PCness run ridiculously amuck.
Not only the idea that there’s something wrong with mocking any president, but the fact that all officials and subcontractors of the MO State Rodeo Association have to take fucking sensitivity training before they can take part in any future state fairs???!?
They should (but probably won’t) tell the State Fair Commission to fold that until it’s all corners and stuff it…preferably in the nastiest and “most threatening” terms.
(Can’t believe I’m defending a freakin’ clown, but right is right and wrong is wrong.)
What part of ‘clown’ did they not understand?
I keep waiting for that white Conservative to get up in Congress and just say to us all that Obama is black, and because he’s black, no jokes, no nuthin’. That we must protect him at all costs and thems the rules.
As I was sayin’ to X this evening, this Lese Majeste BS didn’t even work in the Dark Ages. The typical entertainment at FAIRS in the Middle Ages made fun of the king, pope, priest, bishop, sheriff -- The Man. When did we become less willing to see our leaders as regular humans than the serfs of Medieval France?
Hey! I gots an avatar! Was that my prize for winning the last 3 captioning contests?
I heard about Obama playing Spades during the bin Laden raid and figured it had to be a joke--guess not. It reminded me of this guy at a biker rally selling Rodney King decks of cards: 51 clubs and 1 spade.
I denounce myself.
The Blue Glove works his magic in mysterious ways.
Sven’s icon makes him look…like a Viking!!1!
Some wag on Twitter noted that there is indeed a problem with Obama’s skin; not its blackness…its thinness.
I categorically do not denounce myself for sharing that.
Hi Folks, It’s Mrs. Sven here.
Mr. Sven left the cage door open to the wheel, and here I am sneaking in to take it for a spin. (On tip-toes…tee hee.)
Just want to say… Perfect Avatar! Very Clever -- Whoever thought of it!
OK -- that’s it. Hope you are all having a wonderful night/morning/where ever you are. (Jumping off and tip-toeing back out now, before I get caught.)
Mrs. Sven! Welcome! I hope you come back and get your own avatar!
Hi, Mrs. Sven!
Olive K8-E’s new avatar, too.
… Lese Majeste BS didn’t even work in the Dark Ages.
“Dark Ages” is probably raaaaaaciiiiiiist in that usage these days; so is this:
Hey, Fatwa! Yeah, I thought about the self-denunciation requirements but the historian in me could not be crammed into the PC Box. Or it could be I gained a little weight testing Bacon Balls of Glory. either way , I don’t seem to fit.
Warm welcome to Mrs. Sven. I would also love to see you join us.
Hey, Mac! I hope Elena is coping well . You know, if she needs a break from the family, I’d be happy to have her come to Georgia . I still miss her breakfasts.
I have an avatar too! ?! This blue glove thing has amazing powers! It should win all the Friday Caption Contests!
Hi Kate. I am sure she would enjoy it but she is still busy helping the others. She looks after her father and her older sister, plus she is still trying to help her youngest sister who is still recovering from back surgery. At least she is finally able to come home nights this week. She missed her own bed.
Thursday is her mothers birthday so everyone will go to visit the grave. They bought a crucifix for her.
