Cyn. 197?-2055

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today, on this POS blog, to commemorate the life of Cyn.  Welcome to those attending via webcast.  If you could all put your iphone 78 on vibrate, that would be helpful.  Thank you in advance, nice people.

*

Cyn grew up as a poor little white girl, in the deep south, but this 100% true fact did not stop her form reaching her dreams.  As a little girl, sitting beneath the sheltering boughs of a walnut tree, she would gaze out over the dilapidated tenant farm, and envision herself as a conquering hero.  Little did she know that she would achieve these goals in the most unlikely ways.

Cyn faced many challenges in life, most notably being abandoned by her parents because of her penchant for using the word penchant.  They hated her uppity vocabulary, and dropped her off at the nearest orphanage after her fifth birthday.  St. Daneesha’s Home For Wayward Gurls would eventually foster her competitive nature, leading her to achieve many of the goals set before her.

*

After moving on to high school, and graduating at the top of her class, Cyn chose Moorehouse College to continue her studies.  It was here that she first fell in love with bacon and the many tasty things that can be done with it.  Working late nights in the Institute for Bacon Enhancement, she developed the ideas that would later lead to her dominance in the pork, and pork related industries.

It was at this time that she caught the eye of her future wife, former President Sarah Palin.  Ms. Palin was a visiting student from a nearby college in Alaska, and was intrigued by the prototype of Bac-O-Gum™ that Cyn was developing.

Please take a moment, in silence, to envision Sarah and Cyn with disheveled hair, lab coats unbuttoned, a pencil tucked behind Cyn’s ear…Sarah leans forward to adjust Cyn’s glasses, as they’ve been slipping down her nose…their eyes lock for a moment, and Sarah leans forward…

Ahem.

Um, Amen or something.

*

As most college romances go, so did that of Cyn and Sarah.  They lost touch, but as you know from reading Cyn’s autobiography entitled, “Going Rogue, and by Rogue I mean Down on Sarah Palin,” they would later reconnect.

Cyn spent the next 15 years conquering the pork industry, that was ironically controlled by a consortium of muslims based in Saudi Arabia.  It was with ruthless abandon that she cornered, leveraged, bought out, and destroyed her competitors.  Prince Ali-bin Ali-Mustaffa Mohammed Ali bin Jihad Mohammed bin Nasser bin Matt Damon would later concede in an interview with Charlie Gibson that he had never feared a competitor like he had Cyn.  He would go on to explain that her addition of pepper to bacon while it was cooking was so revolutionary that he literally handed over his business to her out of sheer respect.  Charlie Gibson then replied, “Cyn?  Never heard of her.”

*

Following the one term presidencies of both Barack (SCOAMF) Obama and Mitt (SCOAMFINO) Romney, the election of Sarah Palin brought peace to the world and the seas finally began to recede.  Once perfect harmony was established, Cyn felt the need to profess her undying love to the President, which was quickly reciprocated.  Todd, the perfect beta male, gallantly stepped aside, clearing the way for Sarah and Cyn to claim their love.  In a beautiful ceremony in DC, Cyn and Sarah were married, ensuring that the United States of America would be forever known as the hottest, most dominant country on the planet.

*

Cyn’s life with Sarah has been detailed through their reality show, “C&S do T&A” so I won’t recount their many adventures here. Just know this: she lived a full life.  Mostly full of rendered pork fat and lesbianism, which is the greatest life one could imagine.

*

Cyn is survived by her adopted daughters Bristol, Piper, etc.  I don’t really remember the rest of them.  She leaves her bacon and Palin related holdings to St Daneesha’s in the hopes that some other poor little white girls will get a break in life.

  51. I was 61 inside. It’s supposed to go down into the 40s for a couple of nights and then the 30’s towards the weekend.

    It was time.

    Every year I try to reach Halloween without turning that money-suck on. I have never made it.

  52. That was stinking cu-uuute, Hotspur!

  53. You’d never make it at OWS. You must be one of the rich ones.

  55. Crown Publishers announced Monday that the complete title of the first lady’s first book is “American Grown: How the White House Kitchen Garden Inspires Families, Schools and Communities.” It is scheduled to be published in April.
    The book will explore how improving access to healthy, affordable food can influence eating habits for the better and improve public health. The first lady has become an advocate for healthier eating and exercise, and she is leading a nationwide campaign to reduce childhood obesity in the U.S.

    Like this is new. Watch out for the tamales.

  56. the first lady’s first book is “American Groan: How the White House Took Advantage of the Fawning Press to Try to Make More Money off The Stupid”.

    The first lady has become an advocate for healthier eating and exercise for the peasants while she dines on Wagyu beef, and she is leading a nationwide campaign to reduce IQ and independence from government in the U.S.

    *shrugs* hey, it happens.

  66. Will Cyn still hang out with us when she is first lady?

    Will she have time with all the dog washing?

  67. You turned the heat on today.

    My AC has been running non-stop since March.

  68. By clubhouse I assume you mean

    Heh – my wife worked on the 90’s version of that.

  69. Did anybody ask anybody else to smell their finger today?

  70. Only in my staff meeting

  71. I’m so very, very close to being done with my nuts.

  72. I retired the twins in ’92

  73. It’s not really about whether you’re done with them; it’s about whether Mrs. Caruthers is done with them.

  74. I just got a phone call saying my computer was infected and they were calling to help.

    Bwahahahahaha!

  75. Cyn, Mrs. Caruthers doesn’t want anything to do with my nuts.

  76. Ya know, you can improve “access to healthy, affordable food” all you want to – doesn’t mean people are gonna EAT it……

  77. Ha ha ha…. Mj’s perversion was a source good here.

    I disagree. Not one buxom Asian lady. But well done nonetheless.

  78. “Mrs. Caruthers doesn’t want anything to do with my nuts.”

  79. I just got a phonecall saying Cyn’s computer had a virus and that, if I would give them my PayPal password, they would fix it.

  80. Mrs. Caruthers doesn’t want anything to do with my nuts.

    I hear that some women do develop a nut allergy after they get married.

  81. Did you give them your password Chief? Because I’m soooo ready to go shopping for my computer to be fixed.

  82. I hear that some women do develop a nut allergy after they get married.

    I assume everyone knows the joke about why the groom and the bride are smiling on the way to the altar.

  83. Scott, google Honda micro CHP. With so much shale gas coming online, natural gas is in for a low price cycle that should last at least a decade. honda micro chp is a generator that burns nat gas to produce electricity, and the heat produced is used to heat the house. By combining these two functions, your total energy expenditure goes down significantly. Anyone living in cold climates should look into it. Unfortunately, my townhome does not have a ideal place to house one.

  84. Tell it Jay.

  85. I have an electricity plan indexed to the price of natural gas.

    I’m liking where it’s headed.

  86. I just got a phone call saying my computer was infected and they were calling to help.

    ?????

    I only get phone calls from national Republican groups wanting money. Bwahahahaha!

  87. Go to freewatt.com for more info on micro chp

  88. I would convert to gas but our street doesn’t have access to it.

    If it can run on bulldogs I can get a couple of those.

  89. If this is actually a Herman Cain ad, it’s, interesting.

  90. Tushar – May I count on you to do the installation? BTW – The Commonwealth of PA wants to “give” me $350 if I install a gas, tankless water heater.

  91. I assume everyone knows the joke about why the groom and the bride are smiling on the way to the altar.

    Groom is smiling cuz he just got a BJ. Bride is smiling cuz she just gave her last BJ.

  92. wtf? It’s something.

  93. That sounds like a winner, Tushar.

  94. Tushar, you and Rosetta should sing this at the next meetup.

    I think you two could really pull it off http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2k6EbLm4Q1s

  95. Well it’s weird.

    I’ll reiterate though, Herman Cain has a great smile.

  96. I like Cain, but I am holding out for 5-5-5.

  97. Underpants

  98. Talked to DD#3 just now – she is going to try and salvage SOMETHING of this semester (she has an appt. with her adviser tomorrow); she decided she doesn’t want to leave if she can work something out.

    It’s times like this that I wish I drank….

  99. Interesting ad.

    Evening, smart people.

  100. http://i.imgur.com/Bqy8r.jpg

    SQUEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!
    That is so cute!!!!!

  101. That was strange, Dave.

  102. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

  103. I just got another offer. Same price, but no money on the back end, and closing 2 months earlier, so it’s functionally a $6000 improvement.

  104. Awesome, leon. That’s great news.

  105. My reaction is slightly different than Dave’s.

  106. Leon – can you swing this one?

  107. I like Cain, but I am holding out for 5-5-5.

    Pffffft…that’s totally fake.

  108. Groom is smiling cuz he just got a BJ. Bride is smiling cuz she just gave her last BJ.

    I put a clause on these in the prenup. Not my fault if she didn’t read the 3pt font.

  109. You sure you aren’t a lawyer, leon?

  110. She wants to stay now?

    Ugh. Well, you already paid for it. It’s still early early, she can pull it off.

    It took me 3 years to learn how to get great grades while stoned, but I did it.

  111. She might just be a little freaked out and stuff.

    It happens. Good luck!

  112. I just started “Arn”. I think it’s subtitled. . .

  113. Holland doing Harry Caray impressions in the dugout is pretty funny.

  114. Yeah. It’s a pretty huge change.

  115. Leon – can you swing this one?

    It will suck, but much less.

  116. She’s a girl…..

    You’d think by the 3rd one, we’d be used to this, but nope –
    Mr. TiFW is coming home to peel me off of the ceiling now.

    I’m gonna go see how many more grey hairs I’ve grown in the last 12 hours – they should match the new wrinkles quite nicely….

  117. You sure you aren’t a lawyer, leon?

    I know a guy.

  118. Did the owners of the other offer move at all Leon?

  119. In other news, Rebecca’s teacher reports that she has been “working on helping her friends remember it is their turn without being bossy”, and “working on not pulling on people when she wants their attention”.

    So we’ve got that going for us…..

  120. The eulogies have been hilarious. No pressure on the ones to follow. Nope. I’m sure yours are fine.

  121. Teresa, one thing I remember was being overwhelmed. You go from being the smartest kid in the class to being middle of the pack or worse.
    Reactions vary.

    I decided to extract my revenge by screwing with the grading curve. My brother did the same.

    Hit the wall…
    Get pissed and quit..
    Rethink it…
    Decide to kick the wall’s ass.
    Succeed.

    I hope that’s how it goes for your daughter.

  122. Did the owners of the other offer move at all Leon?

    I countered with 134k, but haven’t heard back yet.

  123. Oso is such a four.

  124. I remember going from an A- student in high school to a B- student in college. By the time I graduated I’d made my peace with it. The difference in effort between my B- average and a B+ was more work than I’d have been happy doing. My GPA bit me a bit with getting interviews after graduation, but it worked out eventually.

  125. A four now is the equivalent of an 80’s six. I love generous sizing.

  126. wait…. Cyn went to Morehouse?

    That’s not what she told me…

  127. I did something similar when I went to college the first time. Mom wasn’t pleased that I went from lettering in academics to C-‘s but teh booze will do that.

  128. Morehead?

    Wait. What??

    Agnes?

  129. I drank twice in college, and only twice. True story.

  130. Morehead?

    well, if you insist…..

  131. That’s impressive Leon. No Really. It was my first time away from home so I kinda ventured out a bit.

    When I went back to school five years later, I was definitely much more focused.

  132. It took me two years to learn I would never make an 8 o’clock class. I didn’t graduate but I had a lot of fun.

  133. well, if you insist…..

    I was talking about Bewitched. Who were you talking about?

  134. Me and my friends just weren’t really drinkers. It also helped a lot that I had a gf and didn’t date all through school, though in retrospect that left me very unprepared for dating after we divorced.

    But still, regular sex and a normal sleep schedule all through college probably helped a lot.

  135. The eulogies have been hilarious. No pressure on the ones to follow. Nope. I’m sure yours are fine.

    I’m not worried.

    It wouldn’t be the first time I posted something here that no one read.

    But if it doesn’t make Wiser and Wiserbud laugh, it could be the last time I post something here that no one reads.

    P.S., To whomever restored my privildges to the point that I can edit my stuff again, thank you. I’ve worked on this eulogy enough that I shouldn’t need it, but your recognition of my horrendous typing is noted and appreciated.

  136. I was thrown out of two good schools.

    The second one, twice.

  137. I never drank, and I preferred 8:00 classes…in my very first semester, my only class on Friday was an 8:00. It was AWESOME, because I was totally done with class at 8:50 Friday morning. I used to go for a nice leisurely run afterward, then do some volunteer stuff and have lunch, then spend my afternoon finishing all my homework and studying. By the time everyone else was out of class, I was free and clear and could spend the whole weekend goofing off. Never had that good of a schedule again. (well, ok, there was my last semester, when I was taking only 7 hours and had four-day weekends almost every week. but that hardly counts)

  138. I liked 8 o’clock classes. I hated having classes after three.

    But then, I was unloading trucks at 2am and 4am, so that might have had something to do with it.

  139. I would never make an 8 o’clock class.

    First stab at college, no kidding. Second time around, all the very early classes went fast, especially in the summer here. Bloody hot by 10:30am to be walking the campus.

  140. The second one, twice.

  141. I had a few summer sessions when I got lucky and was able to get all 9 hours on the Tue-Thur setup. That was very nice.

  142. “So we’ve got that going for us…..”

    HAHAHAHA….Teresa, my take which is worth a flaming pile of turds, is that this is going to be okay. If you can slow down everyone’s decision making (your daughter) then it’s going to turn out okay.

    Rebecca is kicking ass by not punching someone in the stomach like my younger daughter did so it’s all good.

    (((((hugs)))))

  143. Peel is weird.

  144. Peel is my kid…she always shows up to prove the exception to the norm….which are a lot of kids but no one believes it.

    WAY TO GO PEEL!!!!

  145. Well, I graduated college with a cushy job, $10k cash in the bank, and a new car, so being weird worked out for me.

  146. Are you guys playing Who is More Responsible? That sounds like fun.

  147. “I was thrown out of two good schools.”

    HAHAHA….Dave may be a screw-up….but he’s OUR screw-up.

    And he turned out smart and productive in spite of himself.

  148. >> I had a few summer sessions when I got lucky

    You too?

  149. Scott sounds like he’s antiestablishment.

    OWS!!! OWS!!!! OWS!!!!

  150. Who is More Responsible?

    I think I’d lose. My boys sometimes ask me to turn down the music on the ride to school.

  151. Are you guys playing Who is More Responsible? That sounds like fun.

    Good.

    Here’s your tax bill.
    Don’t mind the extra zeros. 52% think that they’re 99% and that it entitles them to the good life earned and paid for by you.

    Don’t you dare bitch and whine, you evil rich reich winger.

  152. I have THE BEST guardian angel in the whole world…..and I am not kidding in any way.

    I could site several examples of how I was saved physically but the interesting ones are how I was a dumb ass and still made my way….inexplicably.

  153. I lost my scholarship, got garnished for failure to pay my student loans, and I never graduated.

  154. My boys sometimes ask me to turn down the music on the ride to school.

    You Too? I heard that from them last Thursday morning…

  155. *tries not to purchase entire carter’s holiday stock*

    *can’t resist the gobble-gobble-gobble outfit with the turkey on the butt*

    *can’t resist the reindeer zip-up suit*

    *can’t resist…can’t resist…*

    *is poor*

  156. >> And he turned out smart and productive in spite of himself.

    Well, I’m productive anyways.

    I got tossed from Baylor after 2 years, and then North Texas State, quit for five years and worked for an oil company, got laid off a week after my oldest baby girl was born, landed a job with a defense contractor and went back to school at night for 2 years to finish a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science.

    All I needed was a little motivation. Like not being able to feed a child.

  157. My half a year at an Ivy League school was most memorable for copious amounts of mind-altering substances and a complete lack of self-control.

  158. Reindeer zip up suit! Reindeer zip up suit!

  159. You’re just now getting that, Scott?

  160. must have

  161. (also thank you Mare. I just growed up a little slower than most)

  162. Dave, who’s winning the baseball game?

  163. You are going to look adorable in that Peelie!

  164. Peelio – Too cute! I could throw in $5!

  165. tied up 2-2 after 6. Both teams gettin hits

  166. Just for the record, I don’t care who has a degree. I’m one of those who thinks it’s overrated and too expensive unless you’re specialized.

    My father, who did not have a college education, started several of his own businesses, put 5 kids through private school, was in public office, enjoyed his hobbies with his kids (fishing, skiing, tennis, etc.) and had a close and loving relationship with his grandchildren. Oh, and he was raised during the depression, his father died when he was 12, and his mother raised 10 children alone and he never got anything from anyone.

    I respect him more than any man I’ve ever met or read about. Although my husband is a close second and would agree.

  167. I meant what I said Dave.

  168. Miss me?

  169. Mare, I tend to agree with you. I needed my education to do what I do, but it wasn’t the only thing I could have done, and it’s certainly not for everyone. I think we put far too many people through college these days that shouldn’t be there at all.

  170. Why was he walked?

  171. You cannot imagine how it enrages me to see these OWS scum piss and moan over loans to universities they probably should not have gone to and partied their way through.

    KISS MY ASS. DOUCE!

    Be my dad for a year…five kids, you own your own business and no one is there to cover your ass.

  172. Peel, it’s cute, but does it get cold enough in Houston for Aaron to wear it?

  173. Your Dad was a great man, Mare.

  174. Well, I meant douche, but douce works. IYKWIMAITTYD.

  175. Miss me?

    **reloads

  176. Oso, you are now on the H2 “To kill last list.”

  177. I second Oso’s.

  178. I am third!

    Rose goes in the front big guy

  179. >> Well, I meant douche, but douce works. IYKWIMAITTYD.

    Very thrifty. Saved an “h” for later, and we all knew what you meant.

    *up-twinkles*

  180. Cyn, Mr. RFH gives your eulogy a thumbs up. I had to explain feldspar.

  181. As a recruiter, I met a LOT of kids who instantly blew me off and said “I’m going to college.”

    But they were’t that bright, had no idea what they wanted to do after college, and had no idea how to pay for school, other than student loans.

    I knew I’d see them after the first semester was over.

    Kids that went to the local technical college? Never saw them again. They made more money than me.

  182. Someone should poison Tim Carver’s milk.

  183. HAHA! That’s great to hear! Please tell him I said hello, Roamy!

  184. I think a lot of your parents have been through what my parents have….sweating it, but enjoying/loving their kids and Country every day. They got NOTHING from anyone and just absolutely did their best every day. Not an unusual story for a previous generation or two or three or…..

  185. Thanks, everyone – for everything. It means a lot ♥

    I know everything will turn out OK; DD#3 is a tough kiddo (you may remember her baby picture – she’s the one who looked royally pissed)

    Going to bed now, ‘cuz I’m exhausted; Mr. TiFW is gonna cuddle with me (after he and Becca play “Angry Birds”, of course).

    Peel, I don’t care if it doesn’t get cold enough in Houston – Aaron simply MUST have the reindeer outfit!

    Love and hugs to all – and thanks again ♥♥♥

  186. MJ – I kinda feel that way sometimes about the crew of MNF.

  187. “Kids that went to the local technical college? Never saw them again. They made more money than me.”

    That, I can respect.

  188. Hey, I saw “angry birds” at Walmart today and they were kind of cute.

  189. Wow Mare
    I would have loved to have known your father.

    Miss Me?
    Heh no.
    Are you doing a obit X?

  190. Oh, and FU OWS, YOU MAKE ME SICK, YOU WHINEY SCUM.

  191. Mare – You have every reason to be proud of your Dad. Not every young man or woman needs to go to college, IMHO. Too many families have squandered their futures for degrees in areas of studies that produce nothing but more academics. I believe that the higher education bubble is about to burst. The cost has skyrocketed out of control while the benefit seems to have diminished. Too many young people with graduate degrees pumping gas or making over-priced coffee.

  192. No obit from me, Vman.

    I’ll leave the funneh to folks that can.

    since I can’t, I’ll teach.

    At the post doctorate level at an Ivy league school.

    To folks using student loans.

  193. Thank, Vman, I forgot to add the best part, my Dad was a laugher (as is my mother). He had a great sense of humor and could laugh at himself.

    When my mom and dad would come to Florida to stay for a month, it was a joy and good laughs not a hardship and self cutting like it would have been with my husband’s parent’s. They didn’t interfere and encouraged us to go out and always wanted to take us out to dinner, clean or do the laundry….BOOOYA!

    My husband adored my folks.

  194. Cyn-sometimes less is more. I think when I was a kid there wasn’t so much chatter. It was more like you were at the game rather than having the game explained to you.

  195. Ah, thank you guys, my Dad died a year ago today.

  197. Those are some great memories Mare. {{hugs}}

  198. {{{HUGS}}} for Mare.

    (and a quick squeeze of her butt)

  199. Excellent film! I’m giving this 5 stars, which I’ve only done a handful of times since I became a member of Netflix!

  200. >> my Dad died a year ago today.

    Oh hell. *hugs* Didn’t know it was today.

  201. My “adviser” at Oregon State didn’t know I was an aspy (neither did I, at the time), and scheduled me for physics, chem, calc, engineering, trig(I needed the credit), PE, and “The History of Western Civilization” (The freshman killer). I think he was just trying to lighten his work-load. He did…
    Then, I took “The Last Train To Clarksville”(Ft. Campbell, KY), and the rest is history.
    After that, I got a tour of beautiful downtown Lawton , OK, where the folks like service-men so much that you will get a free ride back to Ft. Sill in an ambulance!
    So it goes…

  202. hey, whaddya know! I actually sold something from my cafepress store!

    Someone in Ohio bought patches with that altered Coexist graphic I made.

    cool! I am $.55 richer!

  203. {hugs} Mare

  204. I think when I was a kid there wasn’t so much chatter.

    The quality of chatter was definitely better that’s for sure. For the love of Pete, shut the hell up sometimes! Not every dang second has to be filled with your voices.

  205. <i.Ah, thank you guys, my Dad died a year ago today.

    :( hugs, mare.

  206. I did realize it was that day, but honestly, I wasn’t thinking about it when I compared him to the OWS scum. I’m not morbid about it, my Dad wasn’t that way and neither am I.

  207. Did you have a good birthday today Chrispy? Hugs to you!

  208. I think I just double negatived myself…

  209. What movie is MCPO watching?

  210. (((hugs))) for Mare. I still hear my Dad’s voice in my head with a punchline. A sense of humor is a wonderful gift.

  211. Chrispy…..HAPPY BIRTHDAY… you northwest tax/rain/may die of a volcano loving guy!!!

  212. The brain, she’s a funny like that. To this day I can’t remember the day in August when mom passed, but I remember going to see my family that Thanksgiving, and walking into a room full of all my relatives, sisters, kids, cousins and all, like we had for years, and looking around the room actually expecting her to be there. I mean, idiot that I was, for those few moments I forgot she was gone. And then I remembered.

    Brains are stupid.

  213. Good tune they’re playing on MNF: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VD2BwwGE9uo

    Paul Rodgers is teh awesome.

  214. cool! I am $.55 richer!

    Woot! Wiser’s buying!

    I’ll take the… um… the Doublemint please.

  215. Brains are stupid Dave…do it all the time.

  216. If Texas doesn’t win I’m punching Andy in the poon.

  217. Mare – Arn, The Knight Templar

  218. Hey, MCPO, I think I would like that.

  219. Sweet, wiser.

    I put on a coat today and there was $4 in the pocket.

    And a receipt from when we met Geoff in Cambridge. I think that $4 must’ve been from the parking garage.

  220. When I find a fiver in my pocket, I am absolutely certain that my crap doesn’t stink.

  221. >> I’ll take the… um… the Doublemint please.

    *gives wiserbud another nickel.

  222. **hugs Mare.

    **hugs ChrisP, too, and steals some birthday cake

  223. I had to wear a windbreaker today.

    *sobs quietly*

  224. And a receipt from when we met Geoff in Cambridge.

    I normally work on a cash-only basis, but for you guys…

  225. Sweet, wiser.

    You did see the decimal point up there, right?

  226. And a receipt from when we met Geoff in Cambridge.

    I didn’t know that kind of stuff was tax deductible…..

  227. Hey wiserbud, that’s like cab fare to a hotel in Boston!

  228. Hey wiserbud, that’s like cab fare to a hotel in Boston!

    Including tip!

  229. Thanks Roamy.

  230. *gives wiserbud another nickel.

    Stoopid sales tax.

  231. It was almost cool enough to wear pants today.

  232. Thanx for the birthday wishes, my imaginary internet friends!

    I actually tried to sign-up for Social Security today, but they want some dates from the military that I don’t have readily to hand.
    That was more than 40 fricken years ago, for Christs sake!
    Oddly enough, I can still remember my service-number.
    Back then, it was not your ssn.

  233. > I’ll take the… um… the Doublemint please.

    52.. 53.. 54….

    ummmmm, how about the Singlemint?

  234. Was it your birthday today?

    good for you, CB…. Good for you…..

  235. Mare – Did you ever acknowledge the music video I dedicated to you earlier today?

  236. Happy Birthday, Chrispy.

    Did the Fire Department come out when you lit the candles on your cake?

  237. Roamy,
    If I met you, I would give you some cake, a hug, and probably shed a tear.
    Thanx…

  238. I didn’t wear pants all day today.

  239. Mare – Did you ever acknowledge the music video I dedicated to you earlier today?

    To be honest, no, MCPO, I’m sorry. If it was the Beatles, well, then, I’m less sorry.

    We had 42 posts today.

  240. For your birthday, Chrispy, when we kill Wiser, you get to fire the killshot.

  241. Art,
    Happy B’day tomorrow for you, too, youngster! Make it a good one!

  242. I didn’t wear pants either. But I did buy/wear a MISSION OCTOBER Texas Ranger shirt today.

    Up twinkles?

  243. I didn’t wear pants all day today.

    Must’ve been Dress Like Dave Day.

  244. I didn’t wear pants all day today.

    *thud

  245. Dude. It’s 55 cents TAX FREE!

    Oh, sorry … I’m going to go through serious withdrawals when we move past the “fighting over tax plans” stage of the primaries.

    But right now … http://bit.ly/tPNW6f

  246. Wait, xbrad’s Birthday is tomorrow?

    In that case, if the Rangers lose I’m punching xbrad in the poon.

  247. If it was the Beatles, well, then, I’m less sorry.

    HAHAHA!

    *hip bumps Mare*

  248. Mare,
    I got you twinkles RIGHT HERE!
    IYKWIMAITYD!

  249. Roamy,
    If I met you, I would give you some cake, a hug, and probably shed a tear.

    I’ll definitely take the hug, but you know we’d end up talking shop. No crying in aerospace!

  250. Dave, any Napoli predictions?

  251. Thanks, Chrispy. I’m only half the man you are.

    Chronologically, at least.

  252. If I have to spell Rzepczynski’s name to get into heaven I ain’t gonna make it.

  253. Chris, I’ll take your twinkles and raise you a, a, damn it, how about one of Carin’s chickens?

  254. >> Dave, any Napoli predictions?

    Pop fly deep. Score at least one.

  255. RANGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How can we have 87 field errors and be winning?

  256. this has been a pretty exciting world series….

  257. Must’ve been Dress Like Dave Day.

    It was!! Except I didn’t do the big hoop earrings or the lime green thong.

  258. ah, or a hit. I can live with that

  259. >> Except I didn’t do the big hoop earrings or the lime green thong

    WHY THE HELL NOT?

  260. Dude. It’s 55 cents TAX FREE!

    hellooooooo easy street….

    I would like to point out that the purchase was not made by a hostage. You cheap bastards…..

    (may have been a lurker and, if so, THANKS!)

  261. WHY THE HELL NOT?

    These young’uns don’t know what “ensemble” means anymore.

  262. >> Except I didn’t do the big hoop earrings or the lime green thong

    Well, to be honest, no one can pull off that look quite as well as Dave….

  263. “Must’ve been Dress Like Dave Day.”

    Yes, but I didn’t wear 3 pairs of underwear and a dri-fit….they don’t work.

  264. Mare – No Beatles. It was this. . .

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6u9FrXBWu_I

  265. MCPO, what was your musical dedication?

    Enquiring minds want to know.

  266. WHY THE HELL NOT?

    I had to have the hoop earrings re-pounded into circles and they weren’t back from the jewelers. And the thong…well, I decided to just go thong-less.

  267. You dress like Dave, you wear a tie.

    That’s the deal.

  268. And the thong…well, I decided to just go thong-less.

    *thud*

    *revives slightly, crawls toward bunk*

    *thud*

  269. Oh, MCPO, I LOVE Hall & Oats….Well Done!!!!!!!!

  270. I have never seen that before in my life.

    He brought in a reliever to intentionally walk one guy and then took him out?

    Okay, that was just plain dumb.

  271. >> And the thong…well, I decided to just go thong-less

    Oh.

    Ok then.

  272. I want to know exactly who the hell thought it was a good idea to allow high schoolers to play MNF. I think I’m actually watching more baseball tonight.

  273. Andy, it’s looking pretty good to NOT be kicked in the poon.

  274. *revives slightly, crawls toward bunk*

    *thud

    dude’s stealing my act…….

  275. I mean punched in the poon.

    I wish Rosetta was here. I would punch him in the poon just because he was here.

  276. I thought you moved on to xbrad.

    Hell, I can’t keep up.

  277. dude’s stealing my act…….

    You’re just a premature thudulator.

  278. You dress like Dave, you wear a tie.

    Double Windsor? Single Windsor? Four in Hand?? Bring it on.

  279. What’s in the bag, Cyn?

    http://tinyurl.com/64lhkpz

  280. Oh, forgot about that….xbrad??? Where are you???

  281. Cyn’s right. MNF sucks.

  282. You’re just a premature thudulator.

    s’been a problem of mine ever since high school.

    I’ve tried thinking of baseball, garbage trucks, daveingreen thongs…. nothing helps.

  283. Please, no punching or kicking XBrad in the poon.

    Wiser hates getting hit in the face.

  284. Four in Hand?? Bring it on.

    Would anyone be surprised to learn that this is cyn’s favorite …. ummmm….. knot?

    Anyone?

  285. Wiser hates getting hit in the face.

    Hey, it’s your own damn fault for getting that tattoo of my face there. I tried to tell you it was a stupid idea, but nooooo, you thought it would be funny forever.

    Not so funny now, is it??

  286. >> daveingreen thongs

    That really should work.

    >> Double Windsor? Single Windsor? Four in Hand??

    I don’t know.. I loop it around twice and look fucking awesome.

    I can tie a bow tie too. I have skills.

  287. ‘Night all.

    Good luck to [insert baseball team here].

  288. If you can listen to this vapid, gesticulating cow for more than one minute, I salute your patience.

  289. Actually it’s the Double Windsor smartymcwiserpants. It stays knotted longer but slides nicely under the collar.

  290. Good luck to [insert baseball team here].

    I don’t think the whole team will fit in there. Maybe the catcher – he’d be the most appropriate anyway.

  291. Sweet Dreams Andy.

  292. I can tie a bow tie too. I have skills.

    Bet you can make a mean buggy whip too!

  293. yeah, this game looks to be just about over, so I’m gonna say good night too.

    Looking forward to more great eulogies tomorrow.

  294. Back to work.

  295. N-A-P-O-L-I !!!!!!!!!!

  296. Sweet Dreams to you too wiserbuns.

    Sweet um Back To The Salt Mines Geoff.

  297. >> It stays knotted longer but slides nicely under the collar.

    That’s what she said.

  298. What’s the score?

    **covers crotch**

  299. I couldn’t even bear to click the linky when I saw that at the HQ sidebar, Tushar. I’m just not gonna harsh the mellow, but yeah, kudos to anyone that can.

  300. 4-2, top of the 9th, 2 outs, runner on 1st. 0-2 pitch

  301. Game over.

    Congrats to the Wranglers!

  302. Rangers win.

  303. Xbrad, I never thought I’d say this, but your poon is safe!

  304. Napoli had a helluva game.

  305. It smells terrific too..

  306. NYTOL!

    Old guy who loves you all, scary, dysfunctional internet friends…

  307. Sweet Birthday Dreams Chrispy!

  308. *puts on my celebratory thong

  309. Happy Birthday, Chrisp!

  312. Thank you Ms. Cyn!

  313. HAHA! Roamy! I was –> <– close to writing that but I just couldn't bring myself to string those words together! HAHAHA! We need to make that into an H2 shirt. Where's that wiser with his internet store when we need him.

  314. I’m glad someone got the joke.

  315. Xbrad,
    That is really scary.
    We ALL have done that…

  321. Well if it’s pixilated, then never mind.

  322. Skip to page 2, Cyn, it’ll make you smile.

  323. Reminds me of my favorite joke about Jaws.

    That first girl? That got killed skinny dipping?

    She had dandruff.

    They found her Head&Shoulders on the beach.

  324. Nighty time for me cool kids. Sweet dreams to all.

  325. Vidal Sasspoon

  326. Trust me, I don’t think we want to see that guy unpixilated.

  327. pixels keep the monsters out of our dreams.

  328. Page 2 and Page 3–hawt n’ awesome!

    Now gone. Sloppy wet kisses bye!
