Dribs and drabs.

Posting in increments tonight.

Alert reader Black Lab on Amphetamines sent me this wonderful picture.

It is from The Telegraph, and I would just link it but they have had pics disappear (July 1, 2013) before and this is priceless.

I was looking for alternate programming since our satellite signal is down. so i hunt through to find LA Story. Cruel Wife says “If we are getting up much earlier to get the kids to school we have to get to bed earlier. i cannot remain this exhausted.”

“Wuss” I said.

She turns throws her right arm high in the air (about 4ft 6in) and says “That’s me! Queen Wuss!”

“May I use that?”

“Very very carefully.”

Now Sea Turtles are part of the currency offering geared solely to save our biodiversity.  All part of c.monster’s plan over at Soylent.  But I’m going to post my latest one here first (his copy is in the e:mail).  This version highlights the endangered lemur and sea turtles (pick Ridley/Leatherback or Green, doesn’t matter).

Next will be one featuring a harp seal and there will be gore and coffee stains all over the note.

Note:  If you’re following these, I am not a duck-squeezer or tree hugger but this is meant to irritate people in two ways.  I’ve been making art to rile people up about endangered species.  It looks as if I were celebrating the demise of species on the edge when all I really want to do is get people to stop being apathetic or melodramatic and at least think about the issues.  Shutting the human race down because animals get hurt is idiotic.  Wiping out every last critter of any species, well, think long and hard.  If it is a mosquito… God will understand.  If it’s another critter, let’s chat.  But lets not play all sorts of moronic stunts, pull guilt trips, act like children, etc. etc. etc.

My take is this – use it but don’t abuse it.  We don’t have to bandage up every species for every boo-boo, but neither should we be assholes about it.   I happen to like animals and diversity but not through the eco-terrorists methods.  I’d like to see the hysteria, hype, threats, misinformation, and famous personalities the world over just go away.  Too much dogma for my tastes.

Update:

Over at an IGN bulletin board I found… LEMUR FACE WOMAN!

That is one happy lookin' lemur. Trying to be inscrutable as always, but happy nontheless.

My problem with Christians, a predominant portion, is the ability to judge people all the time.  Don’t deny it.  I’ve been in the church many years, multiple denominations, and have seen it myself.  Since a year or so ago I stopped going, not because I’m an atheist but because I’m tired of the people.   Tired of the false sense of security that comes from regular attendance and a concurrent blindness to your continued reflection of the rest of the world.

Pat Robertson is an individual who supposedly is a religious leader and he can do nothing but harm people.  Doesn’t matter – tsunami, Katrina, Haiti – he’s there to tell the world that it is brought upon themselves because they are sinners, or in this case because they made a pact with the devil.

I would love to see him try to pick

up his teeth with broken fingers.

Judgmental?  You bet.  But there is a difference.  One is judging people based on who they are and the other is judging people on who or what they choose to be.

Robertson is the worst of his ilk.

A Gentleman’s Duel – sent to me by Cruel Wife.  Said it was full of action, adventure, chivalry, and bouncing boobs.  She was laughing her butt off.

This from over at Soylent Green:

UPDATE: Another Surprise—Mann received a three year grant of more than $500,000 in June from…wait for it…Porkulus funding.

I’m behind Conan O’Brien on this one.

You, Constant Reader, will help decide what goes in the middle of this front page article…  I am currently taking suggestions.  Anything that mocks AGW and the BedWetters.

Later… And a happy nod to cbullitt for his contribution (read the “New Study” article).

Also, the “Nostradamus” quote is something I read in Gary Sutton’s article on The Fiction of Climate Science.

Can you get any luckier than this?  I think not.

Does anyone here shed a tear for a gambler who says the casino’s are at fault (a “plot”, he says) when he has gambled away $127 MILLION dollars?

I stopped over at Weasel’s place (Weasel Times – sweasel.com) and I realize Weas is stealing it from elsewhere but it’s just the way she said it… made my shoot tea out my nose.  She said:

I am totally stealing “I am so far passed f*cked, it would take take the light from f*cked 10 years to reach me.”

I have felt arty-tistic again, no idea why.

A certain Cruel Wife (aka “Frog”) got her own logo.  Spent some time on it, I did.

Frog-bw-half

Saying that she likes chocolate is like saying that Detroit is a bit of an armpit of a place to be in.  It’s understated.  Anyway, that’s a chocolate bar that frog is on.  The frog is a poisonous one.  Make of it what you will.

Another graphic I did features a crab to represent one of my co-workers.  She’s one of the best people I’ve gotten to work with.  She loves sushi.  So, the crab is attacking some crab rolls with gusto.

Well, damn.  I love Cirque du Soleil and this is a real bummer.  It’s really amazing that it doesn’t happen more often, really.

Balloon hoax.  Yes, I’d like to see the guy get popped for making a false police report.

If the incident was a hoax, the only charge local authorities could press would be making a false report to authorities — a Class 3 misdemeanor, Alderden told reporters Saturday.

However, a misdemeanor “hardly seems serious enough given the circumstances,” the sheriff said.

We certainly want to talk to FAA officials and federal officials to see if perhaps there aren’t additional federal charges that would be more appropriate in the circumstances than what we’re able to do locally,” he said.

Now, look at his wording.  Unless I read it wrong, he thinks this guy really just broke the law in terms of a false police report.  Bummed out by this, the sherrif is going to go find out if there are other things he can get this guy on.

The sheriff is making a determination to see if the charges seem appropriate.

I know this happens all the time but it seems like behavior best left in a cockroach country.

Hey, if this is offensive to ILLEGAL “immigrants” then where the hell do I sign up to get one.  Go home if you’re offended and come back when you are legal.

illegal-alien-costume

Until then, I got nothing to say to you.

Oh, and way to show some spine and/or balls, Target.  You don’t go out and find a costume and then “by mistake” sell it.

Target is removing the costume from the site after receiving several complaints, company spokesman Joshua Thomas said Friday. The store never intended to sell the outfit but included it in its online offerings by mistake, he said.

When is stimulus not stimulus?  When the democrats are involved, that’s when.

They’re talking about extending benefits through 2010.  If they can arrange it, COBRA, too.  To the tune of at least $125B dollars.

You know, on a per-head basis, why aren’t these people out of work and all getting gov’t guaranteed loans like with college students’ loans?  That way THEY pay the money back at some later date.  Now, that money is given to them and WE ALL pay back their debts.

All this throwing around of money – it has to COME from somewhere.  I’d just as soon it started – and stopped – with those who have the need for money to tide them over.  Nowhere does it say in the constitution that the gov’t should take my money to help others.  The argument that these people need help doesn’t matter in the least.  I want their communities to help them, not me helping a bunch of people in California for their fiscal idiocies.
