Good point.

Sore loser.

Something for Jazz.

Happy Palm Sunday.

 

This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

  1. I’m all over the place this morning. I already had the Crusader in the poat, then Leon reminded me that today is Palm Sunday. “This is the day that the Lord has made” has been ringing in my ears since I stepped out on the deck this morning…it is a perfect day in Oh H I oH.

    Meh. I guess there is something for everyone in this poat.

  2. I don’t see any waffles. There’s nothing for me here.

  3. Look again.

  4. Waffles sound pretty darn good right now.

    *checks freezer*

  5. I’m reading a book about the Crusades right now (well, not right now, obviously). Apparently, most of the Islamic world was unaware that we’d even had them until much, much later. As far as they were concerned it was just a sporadic set of regional assaults.

    OTOH, they did serve to halt Islamic expansion into Europe. Then.

    Too late now.

  6. “The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.”

    That line sticks in my head. There is hope for me and even the biggest fucktards out there.

  7. wakey wakey

  8. No. Sleepy sleepy.

  9. >>OTOH, they did serve to halt Islamic expansion into Europe. Then.
    >>Too late now.

    The pestilence first tried to enter as warriors and were handed their asses. Then they came as refugees, and the West welcomed them. You shall regret this.

  10. >>>>we will rejoice and be glad in it.

    Geez, little pushy there, doncha think?

  11. Rejoice or else.

  12. I’ve already joiced. I won’t do it again.

  13. I’ve got one of those Jack LaLane joicers. I get the benefit of fiber and joice at the same time

  14. Joice is for closers.

  15. The Catholic church in downtown Charlotte is small. And it was kind of boring. Bleh.

  16. Yeah – I’ve had to look to find good parishes each time I change cities. I tend to prefer parishes staffed by priests from religious orders rather than diocesan priests, fwiw.

  17. Looks like I’m hitting the hangover Mass (5 PM) today, and I don’t even have a hangover.

  18. Obamajob.

  19. One of the most trite references of all time is the cliched desire to “give back.” It’s nonsense, and it’s baloney.

  20. Good morning, Heathens, Pagans and Druids.
    And Good morning all you God fearing folks too.

  21. When I become wealthy and successful: “I’m not giving anything to those dead-beat ass-wipes who did nothing to help me get where I am. Unless I feel like rubbing their faces in my accomplishments. In that case I will buy them a wildly expensive car and make them pay the insurance.”

  22. >>One of the most trite references of all time is the cliched desire to “give back.” It’s nonsense, and it’s baloney.

    Some definitions:
    Greedy person: someone who wants to keep a slightly bigger slice of his hard earned money so he can give a better life to his family.

    Sellfless person: someone who works for the govt, produces nothing of value, grabs ever increasing amounts of earning of productive folks, takes a fat cut and passes the rest to people who sit around on their fat bums and do nothing.

  23. Good morning, cool kids.

  24. Give back by taking more

  25. Tom Friedman has finally gone over the edge into psychosis

    He wants Putin to shut off the gas to the Ukraine and Europe so gas prices will soar and we’ll build more subsidized wind turbines and other useless expensive shit

  26. Another fuck you to Friedman and the global warming cultists

    Plus – with fine Corinthian leather, the “small Chrysler”:

  27. For the H2:

  29. Jesus rode into Jerusalem on an ass.

    I’d like to ride to town on an ass.

  30. After years of hearing snippets of it in classic hip-hop (think “Hold It Now, Hit It” by the Beastie Boys) I finally figured out someplace where I could find out what this song was last night:

    You may now return to your regularly scheduled Electric Boogaloo.

  31. Our Magnolia is beginning to bloom!

    Our Magnolia is beginning to bloom!

  32. Bible says not to covet thy neighbors wife or his ass. It pointedly is silent about coveting your neighbor’s wife’s ass.

  33. Today is beautiful.

    Tuesday
    snow Snow will taper off and end during the morning but skies will remain cloudy during the afternoon. High 38F. Winds NW at 15 to 25 mph. Chance of snow 90%. Snow accumulating 1 to 3 inches.

  34. It’s windy and cloudy here, but it’s 72F. I wore shorts and t-shirt to take the leftovers salad to the chickens. They are eating good today: carnitas, lettuce, and cabbage. Got groceries, prepping some sauerkraut, washed all the dishes, now I have a few minutes to think about what to do next.

  35. A lot going on in this gif.

  36. I have no idear what is going on in this gif.

  37. I have no idear what is going on in this gif.

    Looks like yoga. And bewb smishing.

  38. So, youtube recommended I take another look at MJ’s channel. And I find a cute video of Faceripper.

    But take a look at what comes up alongside that.

    http://tinyurl.com/pxz6u94

    Something you want to tell us, MJ?

  39. Why is she motor-boating a flip flop?

    *life is mysterious*

  40. I gotta stop painting patio furniture the turpentine is messin me up *dizzy*

  41. I just packed up Hotspur’s beer stein.

    Check out the date http://ctbrc.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/img_20140413_134554_325.jpg?w=800

  42. It’s made with lead and it will kill him.

    Good job.

  43. Wait, that looks great — what is the story behind it?

  44. >>>Check out the date

    Wow. Same year he was born.

    What are the odds?

  45. Snortle

  46. Seriously, is it really that old? That is so cool.

  47. Good year for beer

  48. I don’t think you’re supposed to paint with turpentine, Dave.

  49. 500 years old this year. 20 generations or so.

    Just think, that could have belonged to my great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great grandfather.

  50. >>>Something you want to tell us, MJ?

  51. 500 years old this year.

    Wow, what a find.

    /history groupie

  52. 400 years.

  53. I was told there would be no math.

  54. It begins.

  55. Goodness. 28 years ago tomorrow my eldest baby girl was born. Several months of love without sleep, and a lifetime of adoring, Which I have to this day. I am a fortunate idiot.

  56. In 1614 Christians were expelled from Japan, which accounts for Western civilization’s relative lack of tentacle porn

  57. Dave, you have two daughters, and daughters need gentle hands to nurture them. Which means you did not get to turn them into little airplanes.
    Nya nya.

  58. I have seen some awesome Japanese horror movies from the 70s featuring that period of time. Christian Japanese are often depicted as the risen dead, sort of like vampires or superzombies. This is sort of the Shinto-comic version of what Christianity teaches: “Christians believe they’ll be resurrected after death. Being resurrected after death means you’re a vampire or a zombie. Therefore, Christians become superzombies.”

    Not kidding. I watched a movie where Yagyu Jubei fights a resurrected vampire Cao Cao.

  59. Tushar
    Not my kid
    She’s pretty tough for a skinny little blond

  60. Roomie is in the middle of a messy divorce and I’m his sounding board. Which is fine. He’s a good guy.

    But since I showed him how to use earphones with his cell phone, I hear it all all the time. He calls his sisters. There are many of them. Then he calls his uncle, brother, squeeze . . .

    His phone might have an unfortunate encounter with a pot of boiling water.

  61. How long was he married? Expect this to go on for at least as many months as there were years.

  62. For strange monster movies, you can’t beat ” Pulgasari”, made by a South Korean Director who was kidnapped by Kim Jong Il and forced to make it in North Korea

  63. 14 years. Fuck.

  64. Tushar, I remember rocking that little girl to sleep (trying) and as I patted her back she’d pat my back with her little hand.

  65. I was a mess for about 6 months after my 2 year marriage (7 years dating). The whining mostly ended after the first 3 months, though.

  66. Wait — this is critical — who filed?

  67. Wife filed. But Roomie is done with her. Now she’s playing games trying to get him back. Manipulating the kids to push his buttons and so on.

  68. Wife filed. But Roomie is done with her.

    Doesn’t matter, she filed. He’s going to be broken for a long time.

  69. There’s a happy thought.

  70. you all have seen this before, my dad holding his first grandchild.

    Of the many things in my life I’m grateful for, I am glad she knew him and loved him well into her adulthood. She saw him fade and pass. Life.

    first grandkid

  71. Dave, your father was a handsome and awesome man. Fighting the Japs, handcrafting great furniture, cradling little grandkids. An awesome and fortunate man.

  72. He was a good lookin rascal wasn’t he? Best grandpa ever, sheesh my girls loved him so. I’m glad they knew him well into their adult lives. His passing was hard on them but that’s because of the love. Life’s tradeoffs.

  73. I guess good looks skipped a generation, huh, Dave?

  74. I’ve been there, buddy. I feel your pain.

  75. Since it’s Palm Sunday, here’s the Sea of Galilee ( Lake Kinneret in Hebrew) with palm trees..

  82. Words With Friends will not accept “Hoosier.” FUCK SHIT UP, INDIANA!!!

  83. Words With Friends will not accept “Hoosier.”

  84. Look, Puppeh, if not for the fact that my Aunt lives there, I wouldn’t give a crap. Its ghetto (Gary) wasn’t even good enough to kill b-rad.

  85. I lived in Indiana for a year. My sister, b-in-law, and niece live in Indiana. Heck, my exwife lives in Indiana.

    Fine place without Detroit in it.

  86. Gary did drive me to drink, though.

  87. I am punching out. the clown for 10.5 hours on a Sunday is more than enough.

    Fixt.

  88. Gary did drive me to drink, though.

    Well, it didn’t drive you to crack, so at least you’ve got that going for you.

  89. Dad’s whole family was teh Hoosier. He settled in WV to escape the social stigma.

  108. You musta started with kids when you were about 15. Or thereabouts.

  109. 25 coming up for me in about 40 days. Homeboy.

  110. Tumbleweeds are fun, except when they hit the side of your tire and puncture your new michelins.

  111. 28 Years ago… I was using a fake ID.

  112. Very cool, Papa Dave.

  113. I’m gonna need a volunteer.

  114. 28 years ago…I was finishing up pre-K.

  115. *boops Brent with a sledgehammer*

  116. 4th grade, bitches.

  117. Dave, I’m on the right.

  118. It’s still 4th grade here at the H2 so that worked out kinda nice.

  119. HAH! In 1986 I was 27. Wait, that can’t be right..

    holy shit that’s right

  120. 28 years ago? Your mom.

  121. Something interesting. If you like watching pottery makers work, you may enjoy this.

  122. Scooter is that really you? I hope it wasn’t 1986

  123. D’awwwwww cute booties, Scoot!

  124. No idea. I was probably finishing 3rd grade about then, so 1970.

  125. That’s an awesome pic Scott

  126. I was probably finishing 3rd grade about then

    So, that’s actually you on the left, then?

  127. I should get my photo albums from my mom one of these times. It’s fun to look at your guys’ pics.

  128. Great pic, Scott!

  129. In August of 1970 we moved to Texas from Huntsville Alabama. I was 10 in Sept.

  135. *sends Scott a pic picks back*

  136. In 1970, I was trying to fix my time machine so I could get to 1907.

    Stupid flux capacitor.

  137. So Cyn and Scott are sexting.

    Creepy.

  138. Where the hell is Car in? I have important mudder information.

  139. Diversity Moment: AKA You just might be a Messican. My browner family members, will buy a ticket to an event and then sit in the best available seats until asked to move. I used to get physically ill when doing this. My guts still churn. We call it the “Uncle Pres” or the “Mexican Upgrade”. Dan started doing this a few years ago. My brother just texted me a pic from the D-bags game, where he and his 2 sons just did the “Uncle Pres”. He was 5 rows back from Home Plate on the 3rd base side. Behind the screen. 20 Centavos.

  140. HO LEE FUK.. storms approacheth.. bad enough for me to clear stuff out to get the front 2/3rds of my truck away from golf ball sized hail

  141. We would always do the reverse of that, oso. Sit in the nosebleeds until the last few innings when someone with better seats would leave. Usually around the 7th.

  142. 1986 – got dumped by the only non-engineer I ever dated (redhead, too, what the hell was I thinking), started dating Mr. RFH, was taking a nuclear engineering class when Chernobyl happened, co-opped for my second quarter at NASA.

  143. He was an idiot to let you go, that non-engineer redhead. A FOO!

  144. Sean, when Dan and I first got married, it was “Best Available”. He is incorrigible now. All about just getting in the ballpark. I’m in knots the whole game. I am so thankful that we’ve had “Seat Nazis” the last few games.

  145. Did anybody get home from vacation to find that anybody else hadn’t watered their plants the whole time today?

  146. Good lord, this is the stupid scrunt who was allowed to fuck up our entire country with her stupidity.

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/04/12/Sebelius-Misspells-Successor-s-Name-in-Farewell-Email

    And asshole Dems still support her.

  147. So, I’m at Wiser’s link and I get a story suggest about 2 football greats meeting up on a plane…Ronaldo and Pele. WTF?

  148. Wiser,
    The summation of Sebelius whole reign over HHS:
    “A page is missing…”

    Oh, on the other paw, Anita is grinning like a well-fed shit-house rat about what you have done.
    Her rental viola has to go back on the 21st, but now, the pressure is OFF!
    She is being very happy.
    Thank you, my imaginary internet friend.
    You know not what you do…

  149. Did anybody get home from vacation to find that anybody else hadn’t watered their plants the whole time today?

    Vacation?!

    *mutters something something 1%er*

  150. You know not what you do…

    It makes me extremely happy to have brought joy to the Crispy household.

    A stray dog showed up in our yard today. He seemed to be a friendly old guy. Luckily, he had a tag with his name and home address on it.

    So I walked Buster home. He was obviously well trained, as he healed perfectly. But, being an old guy, he started losing a little of the pace as we approached his house. But he kept moving. He was a good dog.

    The man who opened the door was extremely happy to see his friend. I could see the tears welling up in his eyes, and was very happy to have been able to reunite these two friends.

    As I walked home, with a bit of a lift in my step for bringing such happiness to someone, a car pulled up next to me, the woman inside is waving me over.

    “Have you seen a black and white dog?”

    “Yeah. I just dropped him off at home.”

    She almost started crying, she was so happy.

    So I got to experience the joy of making someone happy twice today with one single act.

    It was a good day.

  151. Wiserbabe,
    You are blessed.
    Don’t fuck it up!

    I still find this fascinating and disturbing:
    http://cheezburger.com/8140918016

  152. Then I went on Twitter and learned that I am a selfish, hate-filled racist h8er for not wanting to give more money to lazy bastards.

    It’s a funny world….

  153. Buster is lucky that you found him, Wiser.

  154. So I got to experience the joy of making someone happy twice today with one single act.

    Nice work, wiserbuns!

  155. Wiserbabe,
    You are blessed.

    Only because I have you all as friends……

  156. Wiser, good work.

    I saw something on Facebook today that caught my attention. I’m paraphrasing, but it basically said “Isn’t it funny that we always here the Social Security is going to go broke, but we never here the same about welfare?”

  157. GROUP HUG

  158. >>>Only because I have you all as friends……

    Wow.

  162. Great play in the Red Sux/Yankees game.

  163. HA! That’s a real thing. Stoopid baseball.

  164. MMM 118 goes live at 601am. I go dead at 1059pm.

  165. I’m in danger of stroking out. Bases loaded.

  166. ICHIROACH!!!!!

    Yeah,. that was an awesome catch, huh?

  167. I got to second base with Linda J. in 11th grade.

  168. I got to second base with Linda J. in 11th grade.

    Was she concious at the time?

  169. Yay! More snow tonight!

  170. Wow.

    Gay.

    I was trying to butch the thread up, after Dave’s comments.

  171. There’s no butching up Dave. He is what he is.

  172. Not a Yankee fan, but I really H8 the Red Sux.

  173. How is that even possible? NY is the Evil Empire. They are all that is evil and wrong.

  174. Yay! More snow tonight!

    It got up into the 70s here today.

    Will be down into the 20s on Wednesday.

    All those people that Lauraw sold posies to this weekend are gonna be really pissed off.

  175. Shut it “Mr Your Team Set The American Flag on Fire While Denigrating Native Americans” + Hanoi Jane.

  176. Oso,
    What is happening with your spider bite?
    I only ask because I have had such a thing and the necrotising tissue can get pretty serious pretty fast.

  177. I hate the Yanks more than the jokes on wiser’s show. Even the Red Sox aren’t that bad.

  178. How is that even possible? NY is the Evil Empire. They are all that is evil and wrong.

    I find your lack of faith….. disturbing.

  179. I hate the Yanks more than the jokes on wiser’s show

    excuse me?????

  180. Only four more months to pre-season football yay.

  181. Yeah, Jane hasn’t been around in like a decade. The flag thing was…..unfortunate.

    Oh fuck that. Totes a compliment for those sava…Native Americans.

  182. Yeah, oso – tell us about your creeping dermal necrosis. If you have any weeping pus stories, too, don’t leave those out – OR ELSE

  183. My spider bite was just a spider bite. It was my RL friend that was bitten by a Recluse. My cousin, Celena, lost part of her chin to a spider bite that was necrotic.

  184. Netflix and cable are being bitches tonight.

  185. Wiser
    It may not be saving children like Jimbro, but saving mans best friend has its own rewards.
    Blake had his heartworm shots on Thursday and Friday. He is feeling better, and I am fighting to restrain his enthusiasm. After his shots he is supposed to stay calm for a month, and only walk out the door for potty breaks. He wants to chase cats and squirrels. Zeke is saying WTF? I get to walk 3 steps?

    We quietly weft Blake inside and played fetch with the tennis ball today to make up for the short walks.

  186. WHEW! Awesome!

  187. THA YANKEES WIN!

    THAAAAAAAAA YANKEES WIN!!!!

  188. Vman and the Zekester cheating on Blake…

  189. Was she concious at the time?

  192. She wasn’t dead.

    You bastard.

    You lucky, lucky bastard.

  193. I’ve started using Tiki as a pillow for naps.

    He loves it.

    He used to hate being held or hugged. He now loves it. He does this huge inhale and then slow groooooooooan…….

    such a happy dog.

  194. excuse me?????

    Just the jokes ON your show wiser – the jokes about your show are still really funny.

  195. I never feel good being hostage-y anymore. What the hell happened to me? You do a great show, wiser. ;-)

  196. *Hits Jazz upside the head for showing weakness*

  197. Just the jokes ON your show wiser – the jokes about your show are still really funny.

  198. You do a great show, wiser. ;-)

    d’uh.

  199. I never feel good being hostage-y anymore.

    You used to feel good doing this?

  200. Cyn…Wiser used your Thor gif!

  201. oso, a little Jazz history: I was really, really immersed in the hostages a while back. I got to a point, though, where I wasn’t able to discern the intent behind comments (I probably ODed on negative news, too). Thus, my periodic absences from the site – mental health shit. But, as a result, I’ve been far less inclined to be snarky. It just doesn’t sit right with me anymore, and even when I try, it feels forced and mean. I inevitably end up owning up and softening the comments, because I really do care about the people here, and I don’t want anyone to have to wonder about what’s behind my comments.

  202. nite, y’all

  203. I’ve lurked since H1. Some of your family stories make me feel normal. G’night, Wiser.

  204. A couple weeks ago, I passed by the hotel Wiser stayed in when he visited me in CA.

    That got me to remembering the night we met up with Sean.

    We murdered him and stuffed his corpse in the dumpster behind the bar.

  205. I noticed Oso… oh, I noticed.

  206. Kill me nao!!! 1st Anniversary of Flashbang and Speedbump. Shelter in place, y’all.

  207. You think too much Jazz.
    Or not

  208. There’s no future in thinking.

  209. Mad Men season starts tonight!

  210. 1986 — I moved to California and got a job at a big advertising agency. My salary was $14,500.

    Great dog story, wiser.

  211. I try to never think. Easier that way.

  212. 1986, I was stationed in Hawaii. Drinking beer and chasing girls at The Shorebird in Waikiki.

    Humping a rucksack all up and down the north end of Oahu.

  213. That got me to remembering the night we met up with Sean.

    We murdered him and stuffed his corpse in the dumpster behind the bar.

    Wait, what?

  214. Humping a rucksack all up and down the north end of Oahu.

    That’s gross.

  215. Oahu is ok, I guess.

  216. I have been on Oahu Xbad.
    It is gorgeous.

  217. *Starts dissing Oahu to bait Mare*

  218. You were too drunk to remember dyin’, Sean.

    Though you probably remember Wiser molesting you.

  219. OMFG news coverage of the funeral of the fucking hobo killed by APD.

  220. Humping a rucksack all up and down the north end of Oahu.

    Just because the girl was a little hefty, that’s no way to speak of her.

  221. Just because the girl was a little hefty, that’s no way to speak of her.

    Your mom was more than just a LITTLE hefty.

  222. You think too much Jazz.

    hahahahahah Yeah, I’ve never heard that before hahahahah
