Caption Contest!

Posted: August 31, 2012 by veeshir in Moron of the Day, PEBKAC, Random Crap

No, not here, at Wyatt’s. I suck at directing caption contests.

This is my entry.

Close upon the flooding, the workers at Middendorf’s Tuna, supplier to StarKist tuna, were all found murdered.

The perpetrators apparently left no clues. D.C. Police are baffled and are currently looking for a boat to retrieve their cruiser.

 

You know that feeling you get right after y0u hit “post” and think, “Maybe I shouldn’t have done that.”? No reason, just curious is all.

I was starting to worry about losing the funny and just getting all endy out, but it appears it’ll be hilarious right up until after we’re all eaten by alien clowns and killer tomatoes.

So let’s do a Round the Tubes, Teh Funny/Stream Of Consciousness edition.

I’ll start with Slow Joe cuz it’s really not all that fair, but it’s pretty darn funny.

From all the foo-for-raw over Joe talking about chains, he also said,

Look at what they value and look at their budget and what they’re proposing.

Yup, look what the Dems value and look at their budget. No values, no budget.

That’s not mine, I saw that from Iowahawk following a link at Ace’s to a creepy sand sculpture of our God-President.

So when I clicked on Iowahawk I followed a Daily Caller link with this pic.

You have to love that with that caption. That’s how he paid homage to Neil Armstrong on his passing. Narcissus was a slacker.

Which leads us to Iowahawk, the man, the myth, the legend. As always, he’s pitch perfect. He found an earlier version of the speech that was lost when TOTUS shorted out I guess.

Neil’s passing gives all of us all pause to consider deeper questions. What does it mean for the future of space exploration? How proud would Neil have been to have a famous historic president refer to him by first name? And, most importantly, how did his death inspire that historic president to make ever more gigantic leaps for mankind?

And then it gets funny.

Somewhere following those links I saw something about Romney talking about going to Louisiana to tour the flooded areas and then Obama deciding to go a few hours later.

Romney is really trying to get me to like him. I mean, that’s perfect. That’s so perfect I can’t believe he did it. Is Karl Rove’s evil twin working for Romney?

So we have President Present who doesn’t want to interrupt his fundraising to deal with a bunch of flooded rednecks and we have Romney who’s “just trying to make sure people know about how bad it is down here and maybe see about getting them some help.”

So how is Minitrue going to handle this? Glad you asked.

ABCNews actually played it straight, I’m impressed.

In a last-minute change of plans, Mitt Romney will head to visit storm-affected areas in New Orleans today, skipping a previously scheduled joint rally with running mate Paul Ryan in the battleground state of Virginia this afternoon.

Then we have others. Like, oh, say, US News and World Report

Headline

Romney starts campaign visiting storm victims

Nice and fair.  Especially considering the previous quote, go back and read it, I’ll wait.

This bit made me laugh.

Residents stood in the water and watched the motorcade pass.

Probably splashing mud on their Sunday-Go-To-Meeting Suits.

Gotta get a quote from a yokel,

“He just told me to, um, there’s assistance out there,” Chiarello said of her conversation with Romney. Asked what she thought of the Republican nominee, she said: “He’s good. He’ll do the best for us, you know. He speaks to our best interests at heart.”

He done sed sumpin but I ain’t got much o’ that there book-learnin’ but he sure is purty.

It’s gets funnier, I like this bit too, a mini-fisking. My comments are italics.

Back in Washington, Democrats seized on the trip to accuse Republicans of supporting cuts in federal disaster funding that the Gulf Coast will now need to recover from Isaac. (and you’re here to help them get the word out)

Earlier this year, Rep. Paul Ryan — Romney’s running mate and chairman of the House Budget Committee — proposed eliminating $10 billion a year in disaster spending and requiring Congress to pay for emergencies by cutting from elsewhere in the budget. (he doesn’t care if you all die) That proposal was blocked by GOP leaders. (see? he’s even to0 radical for the GOP!!!)

That’s pretty darn funny.

Let’s bring it home with one more Obama campaign ad

It is the height of hypocrisy for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to make a pretense of showing sympathy for the victims of Hurricane Isaac when their policies would leave those affected by this disaster stranded and on their own,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., in a written statement.

With a bwa and a ha and a ha, ha, ha.

So what did we learn today? Not a God Damn Thing, but we got a laugh, and that’s really all we can hope for these days.

Someone (can’t recall who) asked for this in the comments at the Mothership.

And judging by the way they handled their RNC coverage on Tuesday night, it sounds like they’re not too keen on brown people, either:

A funny thing happened on race-obsessed MSNBC tonight. The liberal network failed to give viewers coverage of the speakers who happen to be member of racial minorities.

Ted Cruz, Artur Davis, Mia Love, Brian Sandoval–none of these people of color were seen or heard on the network.

You know, I was never a Gingrich backer during the primaries, but when he’s right, he’s right.

Camden to dissolve police department

Posted: August 27, 2012 by doubleplusundead in Uncategorized

And replace them with a non-union force in order to control costs, the city can’t keep up with current contracts.  Expect this sort of thing to happen more often, the current levels of spending are just unsustainable.  All said, Camden is a crime-ridden hellhole already, I’d expect that it’s going to get real messy there during this transition, if I were a decent citizen of that city I’d be looking to GTFO or arm up as best as the Soviet of New Jersey will permit you.  I’d expect if it gets real bad to see some spillover into Philly, which is also a crime-ridden hellhole, but that’s Wyatt’s jurisdiction…I’m actually curious what he thinks of this whole thing, being a detective in Philly.  I also wonder if Camden’ll back down on dissolving the Camden PD.

Godbless and Godspeed.

Neil Armstrong slipped the surly bonds of this Earth for the last time.   This seems fitting.

 

 

 

 

 

Intertube Memes

Posted: August 24, 2012 by veeshir in Obama's Fault, Op/Sped, PEBKAC

This story has two intertubes memes in one story!

First meme

  • President’s latest slip-up was calling Admiral William McRaven a general
  • Comes days after he and Ohio State University students spelled Ohio ‘O-I-H-O’
Why do we have to read about Obama’s stupidities in British papers? Our papers try to “debunk” the reporting on his error even as they are true.
Second intertubes meme

Barack Obama has always been known for his silken words, soaring rhetoric and ability to use language to his advantage.

Lately, however, the president seems to be losing command of the details….

No, it’s not just “lately”, it’s been a signature of his for as long as I’ve been paying attention to him. 57 states anyone? Marine corpse? C’mon, you can play along.

Some intertubes memes are cool, those two annoy me.

Hmmm, what’s a good intertube meme.

I know, puppy pics. Some puppy pics below the fold (sweater variety)

(more…)
