17 Shopping Days Till Christmas

That number either alarms you or gives you a smug sense of self satisfaction because you a) have all your shopping done or b) have pissed all of your relatives off to the point where a gift exchange is not in the cards. Let’s amuse ourselves with some gingerbread houses. This is the Trump version

  1. Wrapping up in Toronto today, home tomorrow. Life is funny sometimes. I’m taking most of the rest of the month off to use up vacation time, my boss is freaking out because a bunch of purchase orders came in this week and he has no manpower.

  2. There’s a lot less sexual harassment without Cyn around. You people need to step it up.

  3. Briefing this afternoon. My team lead leaves tomorrow morning. I’m staying until Sunday. I’ll probably work all day tomorrow, and then drive to DC. Saturday will be a museum tour.

  4. Interesting prediction from FB friend – Franken is being pushed out so Keith Ellison can be named senator and groomed for possible Presidential run.

  5. I’m sure Ellison sees an opportunity for a Senate seat and is pushing the shit out of the DNC to Franken to go.

    I can only think of one candidate worse than Ellison and she’s already running.

    2020 is going to be a dream come true.

  6. There’s a lot less sexual harassment without Cyn around. You people need to step it up.

    Wakey wakey motherfuckers.

    Does that count? Or is that just regular harassment. I suck at this.

  7. I don’t feel sexually harassed so we’ll make that down as plain harassment.

    You’re going to be short on your quota this month.

  8. An appearance by Secret Cyn-ta would be an awesome Christmas gift

  9. Good take on Franken. 3D chess by the Dems. I was thinking with Conyers and Franken out they could turn their vitriol toward Roy Moore.

  10. I call this composition “The Many Suitors Of Erin”

    https://is.gd/JmZgas

  11. I used to own that book, Jimbro.

  12. Parents used it to explain my sister.

  13. Yesterday was the anniversary of this, which I knew about but had forgotten. Turns out one of my favorite catholic media guys would never have been born if it hadn’t happened, which has to be a weird feeling.

    Parents used it to explain my sister.

    My parents just showed me an empty bottle of Boone’s Farm and Meatloaf’s Bat out of Hell record.

  15. If Erin would just pick one, I think things would calm down here.

  16. If Erin would just pick one, I think things would calm down here.

    Well, yeah. But where’s the fun in that?

  17. Social media will cause WW3.

  18. CoAlex – liberals see it as creepy because 1) so few of them have children 2) raising children is so unnatural to them and 3) they need to read a freakin book to “learn” how to do a single thing in regards to child rearing.

    My young children (boys and girls) took showers with me. Kids don’t give a crap about that stuff until they reach a certain age, and then it’s game over.

    It’s pretty ironic that these are the same people who back in the 60’s were all about natural parenting, and letting women go topless because there was nothing immoral about a woman’s body, yada yada yada.

    The left has gone batshit insane.

  19. If Trump does it, it’s wrong. Doesn’t matter if it’s buttering toast.

  20. Not to mention https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FWgmSJzp8M

  21. It’s kinda famous.

  22. Social media will cause WW3.
    —————————————-
    Bitch please. I’m so old I remember when Twitter sparked the Green Revolution where a a group of murderous, religious weirdos were replaced by a group of murderous religious weirdos.

    Peace and prosperity!

  23. letting women go topless because there was nothing immoral about a woman’s body, yada yada yada.

    A lot of that, IMHO, was sexual. They’ve been pushing for over a hundred years to sexualize children. Make nudity commonplace, and the next step is that we can’t get hung up over two people having sex in public.

  24. Wasn’t it common in the past to describe children as peeking out from behind/under mom’s skirts?

  25. lot of that, IMHO, was sexual. They’ve been pushing for over a hundred years to sexualize children.

    Sure … but these are the same people. I’m just pointing out that their hatred for Trump is turning them into complete hypocrites.

  26. They’ve been hypocrites for a while. Hatred for Trump is just driving them insane.

    Still not tired of winning.

  27. Blerg. 20 degrees and windy this morning. It got down to 12 last night. No fun at all.

  28. Seems like cranberries have about 1/3 the amount of sugar per cup than oranges.

    Thought you’d like to know.

  29. About the same amount as lemons, though.

  30. “Sure … but these are the same people. I’m just pointing out that their hatred for Trump is turning them into complete hypocrites.”
    ======
    They’ve always been hypocrites. See “NOW’s” unflagging support for Bill Clinton, the archetype of a serial sex abuser.

  31. Bravo, Jimbro.

  32. Heh, I love the bashing of every GOP politician by lefties, re: sexual harassment. No mention of Clinton, ever.

    Someone suggested that Franken should step down, but not admit to anything. Why should he step down then?

  33. So Kieth Ellison can run as an incumbent.

  34. The snow outside my window is about the same as what is here on the blog.

  35. My lib Minnesota peeps never talk about Ellison. They are high on Franken and Klobuchar. Also Gov Dayton, who has supposedly made socialism work.

  36. We had a little snow actually stick yesterday.

  37. We’re going to D.C. for Christmas. HotBride has never been, plus the politicians and their parasite staffs will be gone – probably all of the Deep State dicklickers too.

  38. Bleargh. Full misanthrope mode this morning. You can’t trust people, definitely not out of sight and half the time when you’re looking straight at people.

    I’m not sure whether winning the lottery or getting hit by an asteroid would be bigger mercy right now.

  39. I want to go to DC. Spend a week in all the museums and historical sites. Didn’t get to go with my Dad, but he got to see the Vietnam Memorial on an Honor Flight. He went with the Korea veterans, though.

  40. I went in August last time I was a tourist.

  41. “We’re going to D.C. for Christmas.”

    Good thinking. No school trips at Christmas.

  42. Just now reading about Lori Klausutis. She was found dead in Joe Scarborough’s office in 2001. Anybody ever heard about this?

  43. When it happened it was a pretty big story.

    I don’t recall any details of her death though.

  44. FWIW, the long-awaited Horde cookbook is finally for sale on Amazon! Link on the mothership’s sidebar, and also here.

  45. Shortly after her death, Joe left office to spend more time with his family.

    She was 28. Died of natural causes. So says the medical examiner who lost his license in two other states for lying about causes of death.

  46. Dammit, now I have to buy it to see if brown pudding made the cut.

  47. Just ordered it too.

  48. Pre-ordered for kindle.

  49. I need to start a 3-ring binder of recipes that I use regularly that aren’t written down anywhere.

  50. I’m about to expand my current 3 ring binder. Plastic covers take up a lot of room.

    I’m thinking of publishing a book with covered pages, just to save room. Haven’t done all the research, though. Was going to get recipes from the rest of the family, and make it a project for a christmas present. Like a church cookbook.

  51. D.C. is always a decent little trip. Arlington is always a must for me but last time I went, a large portion of it seemed to be shut off. Road construction?/IDK, but I got to the one section I truly wanted to get to.
    They have a pretty cool smartphone app with maps & even pics of front and back of every marker

  52. Chi, Meathead’s book is good but almost all of it can be found on his website – amazingribs.com

    He’s a wizard.

  53. I organized all my recipes into a binder. Love it.

    Just having the organization there has turned out to be important for tinkering with the recipes that I develop myself.

  54. Oh good, fermentation reduces oxalate in foods. I feel much better about the brown pudding now. Apparently buckwheat is normally quite high in it.

  55. You guys have binders?

    I’m triggered.

  56. Whenever I go to DC I always like to go to the Naval Academy. It’s less than an hour away.

    There are a couple of great museums there, one full of naval history stuff, and one full of awesome ship models. Also John Paul Jones’s Crypt is underneath the chapel which is pretty awe inspiring.

  57. update on the continuing saga of TT’s Kidney Stone predicament…

    I finally broke down and called the hospital to formally complain and invoke patient advocate at 2:40pm. The name for that person here is “Patient Experience Manager”. Nice lady on the phone took call and explained that the PEM was in a meeting due to conclude in “15 mins” and would it be ok to call me back. My response was “Certainly, but understand that one of the reasons Im calling is due to “failure to meet set expectations.” I also indicated that it would be helpful for the individual to have me “record” in front of them for the call and provided the necessary info to look me up in their system. I also provided my work number and cell number. I figured that reviewing my file would delay the 15 min call back and placed that scenario into my expectation.

    Do you think I got a callback? NO. So I come into work, and being a reasonable man, figure it was possible that I would hear from them this AM. I figure they either start work at 0800 or 0900. No call as of yet. I will begin trying to get through again at 1000. To say that my patience is wearing thin is a understatement.

    If anyone goes to DC and visits the Vietnam Memorial please give a salute to Eric W. Taylor, Warrant Officer, Huey Pilot. He’s extended family.

  58. Refusing to have sex with a guy who does gay porn may have been the only good decision she’s ever made in her life. sigh.

  59. How does she know the genital health of the supposed straight men she allows to dork her in the squeak hole?

    Fucking perverts.

  60. Looks like I have another comment stuck in limbo.

  61. Hotspur, have you been to the Marine Corps museum? I went in 2015 and it was really nice.

  62. She doesn’t … but she was trying to limit what is generally accepted by rational folks as a KNOWN risk. Gay porn? Probably not your Christian- just-like-us gay neighbors.

  63. You’re free at last free at last TT.

    And this is why I’m thinking about oxalate in my food.

  65. A career in porn leads to an early grave more often than most want to admit. You don’t get into it because you’re a balanced person to start with, and it does nothing but exacerbate whatever is already wrong with you.

  66. I have not been to the Marine Corpse Museum. Will check it out.

    Also, I will visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

    Did I ever tell you guys about my special connection to it? In 1981 the competition for design submissions was announced. The firm I worked for at the time decided to enter. It received the most entries of any memorial competition in history. We came in fourth, and our submission was placed on tour throughout the country with the top ten submissions, while Jan Scruggs was raising money for construction.

    It was a pretty big deal, and something that was a highlight of my career.

  67. I either hadn’t heard that or had forgotten it. Pretty cool.

  68. That’s awesome, HS. I remember the tour, can’t remember if Dad went to see it or not. Probably didn’t stop in Iowa.

    He has a painting on the wall of the Memorial, this one, still hangs in the living room. The wall is an important part in his, and by extension our, lives.

  69. Oh man, they finished the rifle range at the museum since I visited.

  70. That’s a helluva thing to your credit, Hotspur. I was a touch young and missed that when it was current. If I ever am in DC (unlikely) I need to drop by it, it wasn’t a thing last time I was there…

  71. Marine Corpse Museum

    I don’t care who you are, that’s funneh, right thar!

  72. Just for the record, Maya Lin Ying’s design was better than ours – simple, elegant, and brilliant.

    Among other requirements, one of the main stipulations was that the name of every KIA had to be displayed (over 50,000), plus a place for the MIAs separately displayed (over 8,000). As was typical of almost all entries, ours had them shown in alphabetical order. The brilliance of Ying’s concept was that she placed them in chronological order, hence the wedge shaped arms of her design. The war started with few casualties, peaked with huge numbers, then trailed off toward the end.

  73. Yeah, Jay, that painting is pretty moving. Just standing next to all of those names down in that hole in the ground is pretty touching – lump in throat, tears in eyes.

    I didn’t go to Vietnam (my brother and lots of friends did). I went in the Navy in ’67, and God was kind to me.

  74. Thanks, Scott. I looked him up last night. Seems to be a smart, funny dude – ID love to find a copy of the book at the thrift store, but I doubt it.

    J’Ames, that is a really cool painting. D.C. is right up the road, so I guess I get there more often than most. Last time was a bit over 5 yrs ago with my ex gf & her 7 yr old daughter. It was nice to hear her ask questions about every Memorial we visited and soak everything up. The Mall has changed quite a bit – I would say for the better.

  75. I like how the names are engraved. People will trace the names on paper. Very cool.

  76. According to the dead porn starlet, gay porn often has less safeguards.

  77. I went right after it opened. Mom couldn’t go, still hasn’t gone to this day. Dont know what it is about that place, but it makes my eyes leak. It has a vibe all of its own. The statue of the the three soldiers looking back just breaks me up.

  78. I can never hold it together when I see silver haired men taking tracings off of that wall…

  79. According to the dead porn starlet, gay porn often has less safeguards.

    As I understand it, that is to meet audience demand.

  80. Terribletroy, were you able to call the hospital back? Bug the shit out of them every 15 minutes if you have to.

  81. One advantage to going in winter is that the Korean War Memorial will be in context. Isn’t it supposed to be in winter?

  82. Eric W. Taylor, Warrant Officer, Huey Pilot

    Dad was a pilot too, Dustoff.

  83. Is this him?

    http://www.vvmf.org/Wall-of-Faces/51153/ERIC-W-TAYLOR

  84. I’ve been doing PT on my arm since last week. F*cking arm has been cussing me out ever since.

    The icing on the cake is that our taxes came yesterday. I’ve been dropping f-bombs ever since. F*cking double-dipping thieving cock gobblers.

  85. I remembered that Jay. I would be interested in determining the circumstances of his downing, if you have any leads on that kinda info. I believe he fell during a medical evac.

  86. And Yes, thats him. He dated my mother in NYC and there was talk of marriage on his return.

  87. Al, you’ve already said you’d quit. So stfu and gtfo.

  88. http://www.virtualwall.org/dt/TaylorEW01a.htm

    On this link, says he was 1st Cav. IIRC, 1st Cav had their own Medevac units, not associated with the dustoffs my dad flew with.

    There is a full profile link there, with MOS and assignment data.

  89. I did send a message to one of Dad’s friends that I am still in touch with. I’ll let you know if there are any other resources available.

  90. My dad was born in ’50 and just missed the draft. Grampa served during Korea, but he was in Newfoundland for the duration doing communications.

  91. Got to DC in spring of 88 for med school conference. It was a chance to see some sights including Lincoln Memorial, Nat’l Zoo, WH, various bars in the Georgetown neighborhood but the most incredible site we visited, IMO, was the Vietnam Memorial. Powerful. Memorable.

  92. Franken is out

  93. Thanks Jay, I remember Mom receiving the news, I can still remember the sound of her anguish. I was 6 yrs old.

    Probably should change subject now…….. this Jerusalem thing….more fucking nuts from the Muzzies and the leftists. Fuck THEM. Does a Soverign Nation have a right to decide where their Capitol is located within their borders ? I believe they do. So fuck them twice. If the muzzies dont like it, tuff shit. Do something about it. Im not in the mood today, and dead muzzies makes the baby jesus smile.

  94. Franken is out?

    Wow, end of an error right there. I’ll miss the ballots-in-the-trunk guy.

  95. I won’t watch one second of Franken’s speech, but he apparently said he’s resigning “in the coming weeks.” What upcoming votes are they waiting for? Why not start kicking rocks today, AL? They’re obviously using him for something. Gun control? Abortion ‘rights’? Tax reform repeal? They no doubt have something in the works.

  96. Make no mistake, the Conyers and Franken resignations are smoke and mirrors by the democrats, so as legitimize the allegations against Trump and Moore, and any other political foe.

    We no longer have due process. If you are accused, you are guilty. It’s the way the democrats want it.

  97. And they don’t mind sacrificing a couple of chumps to get it.

  98. Oh, so Al get the opportunity to get his last minute gropes in for a few weeks?….. Yeah, that makes sense. Fucking sexual deviants.

  99. The old “in the coming weeks” ploy. Should have seen that one coming from far away.

  100. If Moore wins, Franken will renege on his resignation.

  101. I hate to say it but it looks like Moore has a solid chance. This asshat will be a stain on the right for years to come.

  102. “Whenever I go to DC I always like to go to the Naval Academy.”
    =======
    What a coincidence, your mom likes to go there too….

  103. No, yours.

  104. So, we should give the seat to the dems, just because of accusations from 30 years ago?

  105. Conyers was headed for the boneyard anyhow, the whole thing is as Hotspur describes. Franken probably offered to go for a fee or sinecure before we heard anything.

  106. That is excellent, Hotspur. I very much like the design of the Vietnam Memorial.

    My husband and I were there visiting, stopped at a completely random place, just kind of amazed by the whole deal, happened to focus on the name directly in front of us and it was by “coincidence” my husband’s name.

    Hey, Hotspur, I may be heading to the other side of Florida, kind of last minute, got some not so great news about a friend, did you say you’d be here the 10th-16th? I’m trying to work around that but it is more about my friend’s schedule.

    Also, Obama is an effing asshole, prickish, smug, affirmative action, half asssed dick, who couldn’t intellectually fight his way out of a paper bag against Joe Biden.

  107. If I lived in Alabama, I’d vote for Moore…TWICE.

  108. Moore has been running for office for 30 years, only now is the bullshit being pushed.

    Everyone, EVIDENTLY, BECAUSE THEY SAID SO, knew about Conyers, Lauer, Weinstein, etc..

  109. I don’t live there. I’d consider voting for him anyhow. I cannot point enough middle fingers at DC.

  110. Busy, later, good people.

  111. If there was no picture, Franken wouldn’t be stepping down, either.

  112. Oh, sorry, Mare. I should have told you, we decided not to go. Will probably go again in March for my birthday.

  113. Oh, glad I hopped back on. Gotcha Hotspur!

    Might as well ask for prayers…my friend (whose winter place we lived in while looking for our place) has breast cancer and had the lump removed and some lymph nodes. Is supposed to start radiation but going back and forth on protocol. And should start now but with the holidays not sure ( because of the intense 4 week schedule ) May start after first of the year.

    I’m VERY optimistic and not flipped out or anything…yet. I have 2 friends not counting family who would literally do anything for me, she’s one of them. She is a very young 70 year old. I might go over during radiation treatment to be a little ray of fricken sunshine !

  114. Today:

    This or this

  115. I did not want Conyers to resign, nor Franken. All of the others – Weinstein, Lauer, Spacey, etc., got boned. They should have been afforded due process. Franken was dumb enough to get caught on camera, but what he did was a nothingburger.

    Democrats are now claiming that they call for the removal of perverts, while republicans put theirs into office.

    See? It’s the plan.

    And I agree with xbrad. Franken will renege. Why shouldn’t he?

  116. You got it, Mare. Well, actually your friend does.

  117. Weinstein, Lauer, Spacey, etc., did NOT deny anything. Some actually went to Sex addiction clinics ( which we know are a joke but they’re admitting they are nuts and want fake redemption).

  118. First and Second ladies stop for lunch at Whataburger in Texas

    Press not allowed in, but they got fries! (and still whined about it)

  119. Same to you, Franken

  120. That ‘First Moments’ commercial that Shriners has out, gets me right in the gizzard every time.

  121. Problem is Franken, that tape is out there for all to see that is not what he said.

  122. It is 33 degrees outside and I am sitting here in my shorts. WTH?

  123. Go easy on leftists

  124. Leftists need to be nuked from orbit.

  125. Meathead on tomorrow at 11:10 Eastern. I’ll also be giving away a couple of his books.

    Do what you will with this info…

  126. Surprised you can deign to come around us peons.

  127. Who did he peon?

  128. >>>>Surprised you can deign to come around us peons.

    I wish I had more time to hang with you reprobates. You’d be amazed how of my time this job takes.

  129. That’s funny right there.

  130. >>>That’s funny right there.

    Hyuck!

  131. Weinstein, Lauer, Spacey, etc., did NOT deny anything. Some actually went to Sex addiction clinics ( which we know are a joke but they’re admitting they are nuts and want fake redemption).

    Well, as they say, erections have consequences.

  132. Tell Mr. Goldwyn that I am a huge fan. His book is next to my reading chair, and I refer to it all the time.

  133. Well, as they say, erections have consequences.

    No, you din’t.

  134. Now the pope wants to change The Lord’s Prayer:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5155405/Pope-wants-better-translation-phrase-temptation-Our-Father-prayer.html?ITO=1490

    New words: Pope Francis said the Roman Catholic Church should adopt a better translation of the phrase ‘lead us not into temptation’ in the Lord’s Prayer, saying it could be misinterpreted

    Francis said the Catholic Church in France had opted for a different phrasing, which worked around this particular issue.

    The French translation uses the phrase ‘do not let us fall into temptation’ as an alternative, which, the Pope said, implies that the fault would be human.

  135. The words say “lead us NOT into temptation”, you blithering fucktard. So how does “but deliver us from”, follow “let us not fall” if he wants the fault to be human?

    What a fucking douche.

    Just shut up..

  136. He’s catering to his base, the lowest common denominator.

  137. My friends call me Lord Carnivore for all of the meals I have served them out of his book.

  138. I need more customers, then I’d get a cool nickname, too.

  139. Maybe try adding crack to your dry rub?

  140. Certainly would spice up the pork butt.

  141. Would almost guarantee a certain amount of repeat business.
    Best nickname I can come up with on short notice – Jay ‘n Flames.

  142. Pretty sure Francis thinks the average catholic is a moron who can’t understand plain language.

    Might be projection on his part, or it could be the crowds he hangs with.

  143. All of my liberal friends love Francis Jorge.

    He’s a cunt.

  144. We went through an entire series of classes to explain things like that. It’s called Sunday School, and Confirmation.

  145. God lead Jesus into the desert to be tempted by the devil. You’re literally saying “please don’t test me, I might fail”.

  146. Guess what I won’t be watching in February.

    Another sporting event ruined by a braindead cunt.

  147. I miss Paul VI.

  148. It’s almost like The Dixie Chicks, the NFL, the careers of Grossie O’Donnell & Chelsea Handler have taught these idiots nothing.
    I predict Vonn’s 15 minutes will be over before the opening ceremonies commence.

  149. Take this quiz.

    http://quizzes.howstuffworks.com/quiz/engine-quiz

    Some are silly questions and some are good. I scored 30/30

  150. I lost a comment in there somewhere, then got a “duplicate comment” message. It was probably due to the link about the musical Cats.

  151. Lindsey Vonn is such a whore she can’t take off the STUPID looking sponsor hat she’s wearing in that CNN interview. She has a smug, c88tish look also.

    Will these stupid twats ever shut their Tiger sucking holes?

  152. ^ But I mean that in a nice way.

  153. Vonn wants the Trump Curse.

  154. Lo and BEHOLD. Finally received call from hospital advocate, nice conversation (for me) was advised that would hear back from her today. I then get a call from a guy who says he’s the administrator with this urology group SIU Urology (Southern Illinois University Urology) I go for xray here in a few minutes and am to present to the Chief Surgeons Office in Springfield IL tomorrow @ 0815 with procedure to be performed sometime next week. So right now, Im a happy camper. Thank You for tolerating my whiny bitch ass and fuck you very much. I mean thank you…tank you berry much

  155. I think I finally found a way to enjoy Broadway musicals:

    https://twitchy.com/dougp-3137/2017/12/07/so-somebody-took-a-dog-to-the-musical-cats-guess-what-happened-next/amp/

  156. Troy, this is a good place to vent because we have a lot of experience with everything. I’m always amazed by the experiences and knowledge floating around this dump. Anyhoo, good luck tomorrow!

  157. You’ll not hear me complain, troy. God knows after the fun I’ve had with stones and such…

  158. Good luck, Troy, glad you’re at least getting some help.

  159. Finally done with making stuff for our annual fundraiser. We’re going to run it from Friday until Sunday. Hopefully we’ll do as well as we did last year.

  160. Compny Christmas parties are in full swing. I used to hate this shit, but now I use it to say Thank You to the companies who helped us succeed through the year.

  161. And eat their shit and drink their Chardonnay.

  162. We may get a dose of snow tonight. Hubba J Hubba!!!

  163. Hotspur is an alcoholic coprophage.

  164. coprophage

    Stolen from the sidebar at Ace’s. My cousin Gerard worked for Pfizer in Ireland before moving to the US and becoming a citizen. I stopped by with my Uncle Mike who was doing a service call on the AC for one of their computer rooms. That was ages ago before anyone had heard of Viagra.

  167. My Uncle Mike (God rest his soul) was a great guy. He had a million dollar grin and an Irish twinkle in his eye. He’d always say “Jimmy, there’s always something going on” as he read the newspaper. I’d make the rounds with him on various service calls around Cork City and then he’d drop me off downtown so I could wander around on my own. My cousin Brian would wake up around noon and then I’d hang around with him till the wee hours drinking stout in hole in the wall pubs in the middle of nowhere

    My uncle took me here for a call to work on a broken fridge unit. This was before the prison closed.

    I guess it’s a tourist spot now, huh..

  168. Good luck and hope you get some relief, TTroy.

    The Dem candidate for Senator had some of his ads pulled by the AL Secretary of State because of voter intimidation. One ad is gobsmackingly racist, but that was a mailer. I don’t like Moore, but I can’t abide Jones.

    Don’t know if it’s because of Trump (there’s been an attitude change in some of the managers this year), but deadbeat got fired earlier this week for timecard fraud.

  169. Rush mentioned that the Dem was running ads claiming “your neighbors will know if you voted for Moore”

  170. Stoaty Weasel had a poat earlier in the week about getting a new fur hat, I clicked on the links and now this is what Ace looks like for me:

    AHahahaha!

  171. Oh man, that’s hilarious.

  172. Jimbro,
    That is the regional ignorance of the DNC.

    Yeah, I voted for Moore, what are you gonna do about it?

    We have lots more and bigger guns than they do.

  173. Crap. Now I wish I signed up for the secret Santa dealio.

  174. I so totally could rock that hat.

  175. If Doug Jones hadn’t taken credit for the “if a black man flirted with high school girls” ad, I would have thought Steve Bannon was behind it. They mailed that shit to Selma.

  176. Btw, Jay, you are not “high maintenance”.

  177. Now that I have clicked the furhat link, all of my normal sites are showing that ad.

    Which is hilarious.

  178. Phat, unless you have gay sex with me, you’re a bigot.

    Did I do that right?

  179. Yes
    Unless GND is involved.

  180. Grrrrrumble, already down to 10 degrees. Supposed to warm up tomorrow, fingers crossed.

  181. So, since the OPM goat-fuck, I get e-mail telling me to review my “ID-CARE” notification. This involves then sending a text to my dumb phone, my land-line(Duh!), or my e-mail. I choose e-mail. “Caution! Your 6 digit pass-code is only valid for 15 minutes!

    I get the e-mailed pass-code 20 minutes later.
    If you want to see “Fucked Up”, let the feds run it…

  182. Heh, roamy. That one was out of nowhere.

  183. Yeah, it was 12 this morning. 19 now, so more of the same.

  184. Se cayo means “it fell”. Hispanics say it for EVERYTHING!!! Planes don’t crash, they fall. My mom nevers drops or breaks anything…it falls. My Uncle Gale says a lack of accountability is built right into the language.

  185. 23 here now. I wore a jacket today.

  186. My favorite translation inconsistency is when Spanish speakers use “barely” to convey the concept of “recently”.

    Me: Where the fuck have you been.
    Messican: Eeee, I jus barely got here.

  187. Shake up at the disco
    And I think I’ve got a pull
    I ask her lots of questions
    And she hangs on to the wall
    I kiss her for the first time
    And then I take her home
    I’m invited in for coffee
    And I give the derp a bone

  188. “Spice Up the Pork Butt” is a terrible band name.

  189. I noticed that in Spanish too. Passive voice all over the place.
