Mann Down!

Posted: October 31, 2012 by veeshir in Green Goofs, HAHAHAHAHAA!!!!, Kittehs!

Okay, that’s hilarious.

For those not in the know, Michael Mann, global warmmongering bullshit artist and maker-upper of the “hockey-stick” school of global warmmongering bullshit, claims he won a Nobel Prize. Turns out, he didn’t realize people can use the Intertubes to check stuff like that. He didn’t win a prize. Penn State put out some bullshit about how proud they are of the way Michael Mann is ‘associated’ or something with some people who won a Nobel.

So National Review decided to get funny.

There aren’t enough “ha”s for my “bwa” on that one.

As Ed Driscoll at the Puppy Blender’s said, “That’s gonna leave a mark”.

It almost makes me feel sorry for Penn State, they’re having a bad decade, but considering why they’re having a bad decade, fuck em.  I’ll just point and laugh as they go from a great school to a punch line (in both senses of the word “Punch”, IMO).

As an aside, this deserves a link.

I steal from…link to Are We Lumberjacks once in a while, he cracks me up. In this case, it’s not a link but an idea. This sounds so Lemur King that I actually had to check the link to make sure it was AWL.

He talks about what to do when a storm is coming, and I fully intend to do this if I ever live in a neighborhood again.

Wrapped the mail box in tinfoil; which will do no good, but it’s fun to do to see if your neighbors will assume it’s important and follow suit. (it takes a few storms for them to get the idea but once the first neighbor gets on board the whole thing snowballs – pretty soon the neighbor wives are hectoring the hubbies, “come on, there’s a storm coming and you haven’t even wrapped the mailbox yet.”)

Okay, that’s funny.

Eh, the blog hasn’t had any kitteh pics in a long time. A couple below the fold. I edited this a little to get rid of some mistakes.


Roundup: No Sandy Stuff

Posted: October 29, 2012 by socklessjoe in Brevity etc., Fun with Elections, News, Union Wins Again

(1) The public option (sort of) lives?!?! Kill it.  Kill it with fire.

(2) Steve Hayes lays out the Benghazi mess at TWS.  They lied, and there’s no way around it.

(3) The map expands?

(4) Thank heaven Obama saved the American auto industry… oh wait… Fiat might move Chrysler/Jeep production to Italy. Dang.

(5) Shocker of all shockers, SEIU employees are subject to “mandatory volunteerism” to do political work.

(6) Eff it all and move to Canada?  The Canucks seem to have their fiscal house in order.

Die Obamajugend marschiert wieder

Oh, and look, here’s Matthew Dowd, auditioning nicely for the role of Chamberlain.  Matt, there can be no truce or peace with these people.  Not when they do this kind of thing,

This is not the behavior of a people that can be reasoned with.

Saturday Political Post

Posted: October 27, 2012 by veeshir in Random Crap

Wait, I mean Saturday, I can’t bear to look at politics post. I mean really, Mitt Romney is my knight in shining armor.

Update with a new “Below the Fold” feature! It was too long.


An Ode On Lady Parts

Posted: October 27, 2012 by veeshir in Hotassery

An Original Composition


Presented without context:

Valle talked about the mechanics of fitting a woman’s body into an oven

This guy looks surprisingly like Jessica Ridgeway’s alleged murderer, which makes me wonder if we’re starting to see the first tick-tick-tickings of a genetic time bomb that’s going to blow and cause the Mayan end of the world.  At least I live not too far from the Denver Airport, I can go hide in the catacombs in the basement since it was set up to protect us during the coming of the New World Order.

This post is tmi3rd’s fault.  He also pointed out that they both vaguely resemble Justin Bieber, which confirms my suspicions about the end of the world nearing.

So I’m watching live TV, which I pretty much never do but there’s no TiVo where I’m staying. Anyway, I’m confused by the political ads – am I supposed to hate Romney because he wants to overturn Roe v. Wade and get rid of Planned Parenthood, or am I supposed to hate him because he used to be pro-choice?  And why are we still being told to vote with our ladyparts?  Either a woman is too young to have enough sense to vote against Obama, or she’s too old and dried up to care about voting with her ladyparts.  (I’m firmly in the latter camp, so don’t go getting any ideas.)

Theater does parents a favor

Posted: October 23, 2012 by aliceaitch in Anklebiting rugrats

I’ve joked several times (or maybe I wasn’t joking) that if I’d shown my kids the Saw movies instead of Madagascar 3, I wouldn’t be subjected to Afro Circus every time we ride more than three minutes in the car.  A theater in England saved a bunch of parents from that torture.

No evidence of PMS?

Either these are the least observant individuals on the earth, or I need to meet some of these Canadian chicks.

U-Toronto Professor Gillian Einstein (-Yes, her name is Einstein. [insert joke here]):

“Our review—which shows no clear evidence that PMS exists—will be surprising to many people, including health professionals.”

Also surprised by the study – men.

Big Tex Burns

Posted: October 19, 2012 by doubleplusundead in Random Crap

The legendary roadside cowboy burned today at the Texas State Fair, he’d been around in one form or another for 70 years.

There are already plans in place to make Big Tex, bigger, stronger, more kitschy than he was before.  Excellent.  I hope they keep that mid-century roadside styling with the new Tex.

When asked for comment, Edward Woodward responded, THE LORD’S MY SHEEEEEEEEPHEEEERD, I SHALL NOT WANT!!!!!!!!!
