Teh Squeaky Wheel
Happy Turlet Spider Monday, Wheelizens!
Just mowed the #$%&!! front yard again since it’s a brisk 72ºF / 89% humidity right now.
If it doesn’t rain too much overnight, I guess I’ll hit the back grass tomorrow, since we’re expecting eight days of scattered / isolated thunderstorms.
Riffing off o’ Mac’s thread pic:
Have you thought of using a goat, Fatwa? No, not Tom Brady, the other kind.
Use a goat to hold your toilet paper???
Oh, you meant as a lawn mower. Nevermind.
It’s a sheep, but close enough…
Music for a Monday:
it’s just an american thing
the lost highway and the hillbilly king
raising hell ’til the angels sing
forever young forever sweet sixteen
it’s just an american thing
So stocks are up this morning -- does this mean we all won’t die by the end of the week now?
I think I’ll pass on the goat idea, since I’d have to shovel goat shit…or hire-in flies to deal with it. And then we’d need carp tonnes of spiders to deal with the flies.
SackO’SugarK made it quite clear from the git-go that dealing with spiders was my responsibility.
I believe I’ll stick with the devil I know.
Happy Monday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
I learned as a youngster to check for spiders under the toilet seat before sitting down. That’s one part of south atlantic living I don’t miss.
Fatwa -- I think Clippy is a whole lot more useful holding a roll of TP than he ever was as part of MS Office.
I tried a demo of MS Office for Mac sometime during the nineties; gah! Wound-up purchasing Word Perfect instead and used it for about a decade. (And can still access those old docs using a third-party app -- Libre Office -- which is handy occasionally for old JimCo paperwork. The formatting gets a bit hosed, but they’re readable.)
Sure wish the media and the Dems -- but I repeat myself -- would quit giving Stacy “Sore Loser” Abrams attention; what a piece of human garbage she is.
My message to progressives everywhere.
Watching the anti Trump/Israel news conference courtesy of Omar and that other one, I know beauty is only skin deep, but the women they have ranging in back of them are some of the ugliest women on the planet. Not that there’s anything wrong with that -- I’m sure they are wonderful human beings.
Same old song and dance -- we’re in exile, our land is occupied, if Israel would just treat us like human beings we could all live in peace -- coupled with the obligatory tears and pauses to collect oneself.
Just read a transcript of the first few minutes and had to stop. Leave us just say that I’m a leetle teeny bit vexed with those Muslima twunts right now.
I think even Joseph Goebbels might have said, “Don’t you think you’re laying on the anti-semitism a little thick?”
I’d better STFU now.
I am amused with Bill Maher pushing back against them -- let them eat their own.
Bring out the popcorn.
I’m still amused at the whole “Fredo” crisis and uproar. I think I’ve watched Godfather 1 all the way through, but it was probably 30 years ago -- never have watched 2 or 3, but then I’ve never sat through Scarface or Gone with the Wind either.
I had an uncle in Baltimore, who with a bunch of other Italian Americans staged protests against theaters that were showing Godfather 1 when it first came out. He was incensed about the depiction of Italians as all being members of the mafia, but I don’t think that even he would have been thrown into a tizzy over someone being called Fredo.
I had another uncle living in Chicago during the ’68 convention riots and he told me how protesters had stopped traffic on one of the highways and that girls were jumping on the hoods of stopped cars and lifting their skirts to show their genitals. His response was “In Italy during the war, we came into a town where the mayor was hung from the church steeple, and then his wife had been hung from a rope tied around his feet, and from her feet the retreating Germans had hung their three children. And someone thinks that flashing their hairy tw*t is going to shock me?”
What “outrages” some people anymore is beyond my comprehension, but maybe because I can’t tell if they are serious or not.
Sad news on the Jeff Goldstein front:
He and his family have had to endure so much -- it really isn’t fair.
