Flowers for Patty Ann

We lost one of the best people to ever grace the blogosphere yesterday.  The memories are painfully sweet and sweetly painful.  Patty Ann was one of a kind and we will very likely never see her kind pass our way again.

And her passing has exposed a little-discussed, but wonderful side of this whole little social experiment known as “blogs.”  It is very likely that none of us would have ever been lucky enough to have known Patty Ann if it were not for this strange little experiment called the “internet.” (And how much poorer we would have all been for that. )  I, for one, am stunned by the friendships…. honest-to-God, real-life friendships….. that I have made, simply because I decided one day to try and make a stupid joke on some moron’s little blog.  Never in my wildest dreams did I ever expect that meaningless little moment to become such a vital and important part of my life.  And my family’s life, to be quite honest.

My son had an incredibly talented opera singer sing “Happy Birthday” to him on his 11th birthday, simply because of blogs.  My wife and I have become friends with people from all over this country whom we would have never, ever met that (I hope) we will remain friends with for the rest of our lives, if not for blogs.  And now I have lost a friend….. a very special friend….. someone to  whom I owe more than I could ever possibly explain….  someone who I have never met, but loved with all of my heart…. someone who I would have never known, if not for blogs.

Yesterday, there were so many people who came to our stupid little corner of the internet just to say goodbye to an incredible lady that it occurred to me, we need to let her family know that we are with them in feeling their loss.  We may not be physically by their side, but we truly share their loss.  Our friends Cathy and Dick have done a wonderful job of being there as surrogates for us all, but I think we now need to give them a break and show ourselves.  And our power.

To that end, I have ordered a flower arrangement for Patty Ann’s services, in the name of all of her “fake internet friends.”

It’s not enough, but then again, it never is.

I have also set up a Paypal account for donations to a charity to be named later. You can make donations at intruder601 at cox  dot net.   (I promise you, knowing PA, her family will choose an appropriate charity.  She was …. good…. like that.)  Be sure to select “Personal,” the “Gift” if you decide to donate.

Rest in Peace, Patty Ann.

I will miss you more than I can ever say.  As will, obviously, so many more people that you touched than you could ever know.

[Update Cyn: Anyone wishing to send a card to PattyAnn’s husband, John, can email mail me for his home address: c.in.az AT cox.net]

  4. Thank you Andy for spreading the word at teh mothership. You’re a good doobie.

  5. Thanks for doing this, wiser.

    On the condolences thread at Ace’s, the spam has become sentient and gone into mourning:

    92 Requiescat in pace, Patty Ann

    I don’t know why that cracks my ass up the way it does.

  6. *looks at toad*

    Well, sorry, but we’re not doing that tonight. There are realms others need to explore way, waaaay before we get involved, and we shouldn’t head there before being invited. It’s just not the way things are done.

    *toad hops back into medicine cabinet*

    We’ll see about tomorrow, buddy. We’ll see.

  7. Thank you wiser for the words and the flowers.

  8. wakey wakey.

    Now i need to figure out my paypal thing.

    *curses.

  9. Donation made, thanks for setting this up!

  10. Heh, you can see that Car in has been in the Ace thread, since there’s spam for Vibram Five Fingers

  11. I can’t do paypal until I’ve had a few cups of liquor coffee.

  12. Kahlua. It’s what’s for breakfast.

  13. I need a time deadline for this paypal thing. HOw long do I have.

    I NEED A DEADLINE PEOPLE.

  14. If you want me to push HHD even later, I have absolutely no problem with that.

  15. Is there a separate paypal the flowers, or are they funded through the same one?

    Thanks for getting this going WB.

  16. You have plenty of time Car in.

    Same one, pupster.

  17. Holy cow. Mr. RFH left a comment on Patty Ann’s wall. WOW.

  18. Beautiful arrangement, wiser, and perfect for Patty Ann. Thank you.

  19. I NEED A DEADLINE PEOPLE.

    Who are you, Jack Bauer?

  20. If you want me to push HHD even later, I have absolutely no problem with that.

    I thin Cyn already pushed it back a bit. Not sure until when. But yeah, maybe we can leave this up on top for a while. Or I can make it sticky, but as we all know, none of you geniuses can ever see past the top thread, so maybe that’s a bad idea.

  21. Cyn pushed it to noon, I pushed it to 3 PM. I feel better about that.

  22. I NEED A DEADLINE PEOPLE.

    Who are you, Jack Bauer?

    No, but I’m really good at procrastinating things I don’t like doing. I’m sure I’ve long forgotten my paypal name and password … etc.

  23. There’s no time!

    Beep-boop-beep-boop

  24. 162,000 more federal employees now than when Obama took office.

  25. I feel better about that.

    Well, until the ladies get their dander up because they can’t see their weekly wiserbud surrogates….

  26. 162,000 more federal employees now than when Obama took office.

    Takes a lot more people to rape the middle class now that it used to. They’re fighting back now, doncha know….

  27. 162,000 more federal employees now than when Obama took office.

    Ouch. That’s not just temporary census workers, is it.

  28. Off to work. Thanks, wiser, for taking care of the flowers. (((hugs))) **smacks that wandering hand**

  29. I did an analysis of Obama and Reagan’s first term job creation. Not pretty for Obama. Unless something drastic changes, he’s pretty vulnerable.

  30. Yeah, I don’t know where those new employees are. NASA’s been in a hiring freeze for, what, a decade? Haven’t been able to hire anyone except fresh-outs (people who just graduated), except in a handful of special circumstances. And with the shuttle program ending, NASA, or at least JSC, is fixing to have a large exodus of civil servants who have been eligible for retirement for a long time but were sticking around to help with shuttle.

    ok, I know the rest of you hate new comment thingy, but I love that I can stay logged in as a different wordpress identity and still comment as “mrs. peel”

  31. **smacks that wandering hand**

    Actually, that was mine.

  32. Dammit, Wiser – now you’ve got me crying all over again…… 😉

    Thanks for doing this for us –

  33. ok, I know the rest of you hate new comment thingy, but I love that I can stay logged in as a different wordpress identity and still comment as “mrs. peel”

    Since I don’t have a twitter or facebook account, I’m not too bothered by it. Only thing I don’t like is that it leaves my comment in the box after it posts it,so I have to manually erase it.

  34. Peel, what’s your “Baby Blog” addy? I keep wondering what”s going on with your pregnancy, but I must be going to the wrong places –

    (If you don’t want to share it, I understand)

  35. Dammit, Wiser – now you’ve got me crying all over again…… 😉

    Sorry. I’ll put my shirt back on.

  36. I’ll send it to you on FB, Teresa. (It has my real name, so I don’t want to post it publicly.) If anyone else is interested, let me know.

  37. What. The. Fuck?

    Or I could just not comment anymore. I doubt very many people would be all that upset by that.

    SHOOT HIM!!! SHOOT THE EDUCATED BASTARD!!!!

  43. Heh, and the estranged wife wasn’t even there.

    Nice police work there! Use enough dynamite there, Butch?

  44. Okay, Wiser, you’re in Coronas for the next week money sent.

    Thanks for doing this.

  45. Was there a secret meat-up of the New England cabal, recently?

  46. Just got a text from Rosetta. He’s traveling on business and his phone has sporadic access (also known as “operator error”) but he is aware of the news and sends his condolences.

  47. wow, Rosetta responding to a text message? Next, he’ll check his email.

    Cats and dogs, living together! It’ll be anarchy!

  48. I’m still searching down a link for that Federal employment number (I heard it on Fox this morning)- I’ve found this:

    here. It’s a smaller number:

    Even controlling for the effects of census employment, federal employment has increased constantly throughout the recession and into today. Since January 2008, net of census hiring, the federal government has grown by 3.5 percent, gaining 98,000 jobs.

  49. Well done Wiser! Sending in my duckets now…

  50. Don’t send duckets. They always screw you on the exchange rate.

  51. Thanks Wiserdude and everyone else. Big day for PattyAnn’s family… and tomorrow also. She came to these places because of you morons. So just keep that in mind.

    Smooches and squishy hugs.

  52. Thank you for everything, Cathy. Well done.

  53. Also, thank you, Wiser, for setting up the flower donations. Just a heads up, you might not recognize the sender. I used my husband’s pp account.

  54. I wish I could be there, Cathy.

  55. Thanks so much Cathy

  56. Morning.

  57. Okay wait, I’m still hung up on the whole S.W.A.T. thing. The DoE has the power to send fucking S.W.A.T. officers wherever they please?

    Considering the fact that these are the same geniuses that wanted to flunk me for missing too many Spanish classes (I had an ‘A’ in the class), that is the most terrifying thing I’ve ever heard.

  58. Ugh. I tried to manage paypal. I did ok, but I couldn’t link it to a credit card because something or other went wrong.

    So, unfortunately the funds will take longer to clear.

  59. Did you try plugging it in?

  60. A funny comment from the Ace thread

    7 For those that don’t truly understand Patty Ann, here’s a little something about her:

    She’s the only person who, after listening to me complain about some bad news I received at the doctors one day, told me to crawl off the exam table, pull up my Big Girl panties and kick the doctor in the poon.

    I hope she’s kicking some poon today — with two beautiful legs and a heart of gold.

    Goodbye Patty Ann. Will miss you! Say hi to Mom and Dad for me, will ya?

  61. [[Cathy–check you email please]]

  62. That’s a great comment…thanks Andy!

  63. Hahahahaha

    I told PattyAnn not to kick her doctor in the poon.

  64. Jennifer Connelly had a baby girl last week.

    Yes, this Jennifer Connelly.

    That was one of PA’s favorite gifs. She found a way to sneak it into so many posts, simply because she knew it drove men crazy.

    I’d like to think there is some kind of poetic balance being struck here…..

  65. HA! Haven’t see that gif in a while. Makes me smile. Good find.

  66. Very nice post, wiserbud.

    It was wiserbud who broached the subject of PattyAnn’s flower arrangement to me first thing yesterday morning. He was busy at work yesterday and asked me to.

    Thankfully wiserbud got fired yesterday and has taken charge.

  67. Thankfully wiserbud got fired yesterday and has taken charge.

    Well, I’m a “take charge” kinda guy.

    Now make me a sammich.

  68. Good thing – work has been getting in the way of Wiser hanging out here….. 😉

  69. ???

    where did PJM’s comment go?

  70. Stupid fat fingers on my iPhone deleted my comment. Hey wiser, you wanna get that comment I made about you out of the trash?

  71. Where did Peej’s comment go?

    *only remembers drinking 1/2 glass of wine last night*
    THIS is why Mommy doesn’t drink……

  72. Maybe she took a Midol and deleted it.

  78. Maybe she took a Midol and deleted it.

    Silly hotspur that doesn’t even make sense. Why would I delete a Midol?

  79. Teresa, perhaps you should leave drinking to the professionals.

  80. I also love donating money to an account called “intruder” although I suppose it’s better than my Carnival Cruise account……..but not by much

  81. check it for rufies…..

    Mr. TiFW doesn’t have to use pharmaceuticals to get me to do things you don’t talk about in polite company…….

  84. *notes to self never ever attend H2 Meatup on a cruise ship*

  85. I couldn’t donate as much to the flowers now, because I splurged on flowers for her before and my husband it going to cut up my credit card.

    But, really, it’s more important that she saw the love. I mean, it’s important NOW for the family. But I hope the outpouring she got at the end was like a hug from us.

  86. Mr. TiFW doesn’t have to use pharmaceuticals to get me to do things you don’t talk about in polite company…….

  87. Wiser – Thanks for setting this up. I’ll set up a PP account and get on it today.

    You’re a good man.

  88. Commenting and answering the phone at the same time are hard.

  89. Plus, we just paid my sil’s funeral expenses.

    Oh yeah. First roofie us so we puke for an entire day. Then add the motion of the ocean.

    What could go wrong?

  112. My heroin bone hurts. Does Cyn have something for that?

  113. What could go wrong?

    Pirates. Norwalk virus. Some dumbass booking us on Disney.

    The possibilities are endless.

    It’s perfect.

  114. I’m just afraid that Peej or I would roll off the boat during the jello wrastling contest that she’d set up as our “cruise director”.

  115. Hmm, Pirates, and Disney. Sounds like this could be a pretty good movie idea.

  116. My heroin bone hurts. Does Cyn have something for that?

    Hello?! Moar heroin.

    Do I have to teach you everything?

  117. Imma go mow the lawn. Try not to rob anybody while I’m gone.

    You should hear our sex chats at night, boy howdy.

  120. Morning, reprobates.

    I’m guessing no one set Sean on fire last night.

    Slackers.

  121. the last 2 words used by Peej against me in Words with Friends game:

    “Vulva” and “toots”

    to say that I was overcome with an epileptic case of the snorts would be an understatement.

    2 more letters and I can use ‘moar heroin’ against her!

  122. Why do comments sometimes stay in the box after they poat.

    This is stupid.

  123. the comment or the fact that it stays there?

  124. “Vulva” and “toots”

    hahaha, wha? It’s the letters I’ve been dealt.

  125. You should hear our sex chats at night, boy howdy.

    “Vulva” and “toots”

    I hear those words every night.

    Bor-ring.

  126. Was she saying her vulva toots?

    There’s a word for that.

  127. Why do comments sometimes stay in the box after they poat.

    That bugs me too. I have to delete my comments before I can add a new one.

  128. I hear those words every night.

    Bor-ring

    Yeah. She’s more into perineums.

  129. See, I’m the kind of wife who sends pictures like the Jennifer Connelly .gif to her husband, ‘cuz I lurves him THAT.MUCH.

    We don’t play games on the phone – mostly because we’re dinosaurs…..

  130. Hotspur, I just sent a message to the support solutions team (!) at werdpress on the remaining comments. I also mentioned yesterday about the tab key stroke (SYWM) irritant. I’m sure that they will get right on that with their top men.

  131. Perennials? Those ARE my favorite flowers.

    Wait…wut?

  132. “Was she saying her vulva toots?”

    No, she was saying to toot her vulva. Different thought altogether.

  133. How often do you think Jennifer Connelly has to groom her unibrow?

  134. Looks like I picked a bad time to discuss my virginity.

  135. “Yeah. She’s more into perineums.”

  161. Didn’t they fly to Planet Ovum, er wait, I’m thinking of the show Battle Star Galabia.

  162. …into the wood chipper.

  163. not mother?..

    no.

  164. Planet Ovum was from the movie, “The Fist Element”

  165. I suspect you’re all getting it confused with Sex Slave One.

  166. YAY!! Hi Will, pops to be!

  167. No, no, no, I think you’re thinking of The Morning After, or was it Red Anus?

  168. shit shit shit. Just got this from my husband:

    Our big tandem truck was destroyed in an accident in Northern Ohio. Details sketchy, front end got smashed from a tractor trailer that lost control. Driver is shaken, but supposedly alright. Chip happens to be working the area and can retrieve him. On the good side, he did not spill the load. Hard to believe that we could not add a HAZMAT emergency to the fun. Never a dull moment.

  169. oh carin, I’m so sorry.

  170. Star Whores!!!

  171. Dang…good to hear your driver is okay Carin.

  172. Thanks peej. I guess I should be thankful the driver is ok. [Edit – cause I can’t believe i wrote it like this -of COURSE, that is the most important thing. ]

    And that the batteries didn’t spill.

    THAT is a nightmare. [more edit – because we’ve been through this before – we’ve had two accidents in our history, and it’s been the driver’s fault both times and STUPID STUPID errors]

    Oh, just got more:

    He was whipped by a trailer that lost control. The trailer was one of those triple type that they let travel the Turnpike. It is like a giant centipede. Once one of those things gets out of control there is no getting them straight. It is like getting whipped by the ass end of a dish rag. Supposedly took the front end off of our truck. Paul is lucky to be alive. I will send pictures as they become available.

  173. Bummer, Carin.

    Glad your guy is unhurt.

  174. Car in, INSIST that the driver get checked out at a hospital. Both for his own well being, and as insurance against any future claims.

  175. That didn’t come out as I meant.

    OF COURSE -that should be my first thought.

    But honestly, I didn’t even consider that a possibility, because when my husband emailed me THAT would have been the only thing he would have mentioned. I mean, if he’d been hurt, who would have cared about the rest?

  176. Oh damn, Car in…. Glad your driver is okay….. Stuff can be replaced, people, not so much….

  177. I’m sure Chip will make sure he’s checked out.

    I’m sure he’s shaken. That has to be horrifying.

  178. Geez – Sorry to hear that Car in.

  179. Star Whores!!!

    – – – – –

    which one? Phantom Penis or Attack of the Poons?

  180. You guys just don’t know what a nightmare this stuff is – truck accidents with Hazmat. I mean, fines in the $100,000 range.

    It sucks.

    Every time we get things going smoothly something comes along that … honestly threatens to sink us.

  181. No, no. The other one. Revenge of the Nipples.

  182. Carin, that accident sounds like it is not your company’s fault. Would you still be stuck with the hazmat fine?

  183. My sister was driving a van full of college kids through Ohio to a rafting trip on the New River when their van was hit head-on by a semi tire lost from a truck travelling 65 mph in the opposite direction. The tire hit the median wall, became airborne, and impacted the van where the hood meets the windshield. Like Chip, my sis and the kids were okay, but the van was totalled – sis hit the median wall and, between that damage and the damage from the tire, that was all she wrote for the van.

    And there was soilage. Sis says she striped her jeans. BUT, she rented another van and finished out the trip with the kids.

  184. I’m not sure when she changed her jeans, though.

  185. Don’t know. Glad I don’t have to find out.

    Honestly, the regulations and bullshit. It turns me into this cold bitch when things like this happen.

    We had a driver that drove under a bridge that wasn’t tall enough.

    I mean, it was his FUCKING JOB to know what stuff. He no longer works for us. And, yes, we did have to pay his unemployement for how ever long, plus buy a new truck.

  186. And there was soilage. Sis says she striped her jeans. BUT, she rented another van and finished out the trip with the kids.

    Ha ha ha …

    Wait, that’s not supposed to be funny. I mean, does she laugh about that part now?

  187. I mean, fines in the $100,000 range.

    – – – – –

    I would be on the phone with my insurance agent and lawyer, in no particular order. I sure hope nothing but a claim and reciprocity comes of it for you Car in.

  188. Wait, that’s not supposed to be funny.

    Yeah, it kinda was. I wouldn’t have included it otherwise. 🙂

    I mean, does she laugh about that part now?

    Well, we more laugh about it with her; she doesn’t really initiate stories about it. She’s lost about 70% of her vision in the past few years, and she doesn’t talk much about driving anymore. I think that’s the part that bothers her and not the soilage. I can excuse a terror-shart, anyway.

  189. I can excuse a terror-shart, anyway.

    Oh, of course. You get a pass for that.

  190. terror-shart

    Isn’t that the code name Homeland Security uses for the Christmas Day Bomber?

  191. You people are all sick.

    *crosses arms, turns back.

  192. Isn’t that the code name Homeland Security uses for the Christmas Day Bomber?

    I thought they were what the “T.S.” in “T.S. Eliot” stood for.

  193. Guuuuuuuuuys, this applying for jobs shit is scary!

  194. Yikes, Car in! Maybe PattyAnn was up there watching out for your driver –

    And Bill Cosby says that’s why he carries an extra pair of underwear in the glove box, right? So they can tell his mother that he “had” clean underwear after the accident?

  195. *crosses arms, turns back.

    *gives MJ an atomic wedgie, dances off*

  196. terror-shart (verb)

    Shitting oneself by means of involuntary colonic stimulation. To create waste through a sudden burst of material flatulence.

    Example: “Upon opening his tax returns from his accountant, Guy sharted all over the Kitchen floor, all the way down the hallway and into the bedroom then proceeded to pass out on the floor.”

  197. terror-shart (verb)
    Shitting oneself by means of involuntary colonic stimulationshock. To create waste through a sudden explosive burst of material flatulence flatus supersaturated with solid and semi-solid fecal matter.

    My working definition.

  198. accident update:

    Paul is shaken, in shock, but no damage at this point sitting in a hospital in Amherst, Ohio. Chip will get him in a couple of hours. Insurance Co. has the claim. Lease company has my new semi ready tomorrow….it’s as though it was planned. Retrieve merchandise tomorrow, stick in second driver tomorrow, assuming the state let’s me get into the impound yard, and were back on schedule. It’s Miller (Moosehead) Time, stick the Mooseheads in the fridge….. Driver alive, and I have a new truck.

  199. Awww, good deal, Carin. Other than the damage to your driver’s psyche, it all appears as a mere inconvenience, at this point. Worth a few prayers of thanks, methinks.

  200. Guuuuuuuuuys, this applying for jobs shit is scary!
    —————————————–
    The scary part comes when you actually get a job and realize that you take home about half of your salary.

    *Shakes fist in Northeasterly direction.

  201. Good news, Car in!

  202. Thanks MJ *headdesk*

    … Also, out of the three jobs I applied for today, the closest one to my house is almost an hour drive (and that’s a shitty ‘minimum wage is better than no wage’ type job). FUN TIMES GAIS.

  203. oh and also

    Random artsy coolness for the day. On my screen that image is about 5x life size – your mileage may vary.

  204. Pic of truck on my blog.

    holy shit.

  205. Reevy, I hope your former classmates are learning something right now.

  206. That pic does look like Patty Ann was protecting that driver’s side. It’s the only part of the cab that’s intact.

  207. Car in, I just hope their prospects are looking better than mine.

    I mean, of the jobs that I applied for today, one I have pretty much no chance of getting, another I have maybe a slightly better chance at, and the last I’m probably over-qualified for – after all, a 4-year-art degree is probably overkill for a job drawing freaking store signage at Whole Foods.

  208. Wow Carin, that’s some damage. Glad he’s okay.

    … No really, that was a question on the job application I just filled out. What the fuck?

  211. OMG, HE DID NOT.

    Why would any man do that?

  212. GML – …. okay obviously 4 years of figure drawing classes have desensitized me because I wasn’t all that horrified.

    I have just emailed you a picture of my business. YOU ARE WELCOME!

  217. GML – no, I don’t mean that – elected officials shouldn’t be sending pictures of their naughty parts to co-eds. I’m just saying that I must be pretty desensitized to nudity if a picture of Weiner’s weiner barely causes a blip on my yuck radar.

    What can I say – some of those models I had to draw in college weren’t exactly GQ material.

  218. Carin – Can’t wait for the story on that accident. Glad your driver guy is OK.

  219. Looks like the HHD poat arrived on schedule…I’m going to push it out a bit further so stragglers will still see this poat.

  220. Done…HHD pushed to 5:30 pm.

  221. Whenever these new laws take effect, I will be able to possess marijuana and use the ladies bathrooms whenever I am feeling pretty.

  222. after all, a 4-year-art degree is probably overkill for a job drawing freaking store signage at Whole Foods.

    I stopped an bailed hay for 3 hours today.

    No. It’s not.

    What?

  225. I worked as a freight brakeman on the railroad for 2 years after school. Dirty, dangerous work.

  226. http://hotair.com/greenroom/archives/2011/06/08/cain-gun-control-should-be-a-states-decision/

    Is his comment wrong? It could be phrased better, but I don’t see anything wrong with it. Gun Control is at the state and local level. I don’t agree with the laws, but the federal government can’t regulate it, the state and local governments do that (Heller and McDonald).

  227. Gun Control is at the state and local level.

    Well, yeah. It’s a lot easier to get a battalion of militia to the county seat.

  228. Wrong.

    McDonald held that the 2nd amendment was incorporated by the states via the 14th amendment.

  229. I see, thanks Andy!

  230. Andy is correct. Look at it this way, do you want California or Mass. making up their own 1st Amendment rules?

  231. I believe it applies to the bill of rights, from the federal to the state level.

  232. May I just say, and I mean nothing inflammatory, that the whole point of the 2nd Amendment is that we need not rely on law. We have physics on our side.

  233. I worked as a freight brakeman on the railroad for 2 years after school. Dirty, dangerous work.

    You know from experience, then, that I’m not joking when I say you’re very lucky to have all your limbs right now. I know two men who worked on the RR and both are missing body parts – one is missing fingers, and the other is missing half his left foot. Dirty and dangerous is an understatement!

  234. We have physics on our side.

    I’m casting a ballistic vote this year.

    And I’m sure you got mocked for your boo-boo! 😛

    Man, if that’s a minor injury, I don’t want to play that game.

  239. Gawd that sounds awful MCPO!

  240. I am not looking at Anthony’s weiner. His fucking nose is disgusting enough.

  241. I scored in the top 2%. . .

  242. The worst I did was break both of my legs. . . at the same time.

    If you’re going to bang a married woman, always pick one that lives in a ranch.

  243. Cyn – The job was OK. It’s just that, if you put a wrong foot, it was going to cost you pain. . . or your life.

  244. Herr – I only did that during the day-time.

  245. I looked. It’s required in the manual.

    And then I laughed and laughed and laughed.

    What a fucking dumbass. Two private people want to do that…I got no beef. A politician or other high ranking official? Just damned ignorant and stupid.

  246. Me too, Chief. We is smart.

  247. I scored better than 91% of the public.

    I thought we spent more on interest than on Medicare. Since it’s China’s labor we’re printing up and selling back to them, I believe the point to be moot.

  248. I scored in the top 2%. . .

    Me too, Chief. i was worried, after my 2nd amendment question. LOL

  249. From what Breitbart said, I figured he had a full frontal identifiable as Weiner. Not so much. It’s just a dick pic.

    A very average dick pic.

  250. Hahahahaha

    Breitbart is “mortified.”

    Ummm….riiight.

  251. I scored better than 91% of the public.

  252. The Rep. Weiner pictures prove that we all put on our pants one leg at a time.

    Some of us do a little more work tucking and rearranging before we’re finished, but…..

  253. House Ethics Committee: Huma, is this your husband’s weiner?
    Huma: I can’t say with certitude.
    HEC: Huma, have you ever seen your husband’s weiner?
    Huma: I can’t say with certitude.
    HEC: Huma, have you and Anthony ever had sex?
    Huma: I can’t say with certitude.

  254. Being a geek/nerd, I just gotta ask, how did Mr. Weiner get that shot in the first place? ‘Cuz the physics doesn’t seem to be right….. 😉

  255. ‘Cuz the physics doesn’t seem to be right…..

    It’s perfectly normal for one nut to hang 50% lower than the other.

    For a Congressman, that is. That’s his “campaign nut”. It’s science.

  269. I’m so fat, if I opened a text message that had a pic of my junk, I’d think it was from a stranger.

  270. Jazz if you want to get laid you’re going to need a better picture than that.

    I’ll send one of mine you can borrow.

    I’m sure @repweiner is taking thank you notes. He needs all the positive press he can get.

  272. I have a sticky picture in the upper right of the blag that will link back to this post for anyone that would happen along and like to make a donation.

    Do I make HHD appear now or wait until the previously noted time? This thread is beginning to move a tad slowly.

    Weigh-in please…do it now!!!1!

  283. I soooo hope you did not take that as any – ANY – mean-spirited dig, Jewstin. If I offended, I am truly, truly sorry. Opportunity knocked…

  284. There was just a gay sex joke in PA’s memorial thread. This place has NO respect at all.

  285. Okay, I’m driving. Goodnight, all. 🙂

  286. I suck. My joke wasn’t funny. I’m sorry.

  287. No worries Jazz.
