(AKA “To Kill a Mime”)

So Veeshir wants silencers…

… then silencers you shall have.

I give to you (as in “present to you”) the MimeSweeper3 v0.2.

There’s more irony in NOT using silencers since by definition if you are greasing mimes you’re not big on quiet entertainment, but then again, this is poetic.

Pic your poison.  Poetic, above, or Bleeding Irony, below.

cbullitt swore it needed more than one barrel so I’m willing to go halfway – two large-bore barrels in an over/under arrangement.  Yes, there’s one trigger.  Pull the trigger and both go off.  Half measures in Lemur’s mind are wasted measures.

I’ll add in the mime-endangering stuff later after the Sweeper is done.


Obama Hits at Tea Partiers

President singles out conservative movement at DNC event, saying they should ‘thank him’ for cutting taxes

In the same vein that the guy who claims he’s doing you a big favor getting rid of your lead-based paints in your garage also dumps nuclear and bio waste out on the grass in your back yard.  Gee thanks ever so much.

Obama, you’re such a clueless (or uncaring) putz.  And at other times the guy just seems stupid – like at any moment he’s going to dial up a Rabbi and ask where he can get a good kosher ham sandwich.

Foes of Tea Party to infiltrate rallies.

Gee, thanks Breitbart.  This is news?

Seriously, how many people were naive enough to think that they haven’t done that since the first day?  Has all capacity for independent thought vanished?


Update: Navy 2, Pirates 0from Laconic Pup.


A while back there was widespread acceptance of the idea of a weapon dedicated solely to getting rid of a menace even more tenacious than cockroaches.


It isn’t over. Not by a long shot.

So I thought:  “Hmmm.  What would be the best?”

Clearly something archaic.  Something that would strike fear into a mime’s heart.  Something that ensured that you couldn’t hear them scream.

Good God, Man-Thing... pull yourself together.

At some point when I wasn’t looking this blog passed it’s 100,000 mark, which isn’t nothin’ to folks like over at Soylent or Asshats, but I’m not unhappy about it.  If I had to make a wild guess it was Aggie who crossed the line.

Moving on… Obama says we’re going to get our health care bill (not vote, not pass… it’ll just arrive somehow) and then they’ll post the information so we can all know what is in i t.

For the millionth time:  I don’t feel comfortable buying a house that I’ve never seen.  I don’t buy cars that I’ve never seen.  I don’t even buy a friggin’ t-shirt that I’ve never seen yet the tyrants in Congress made up mostly by the Democratic Party are going to see to it that I do.  And this will cost oh-so-much more than a t-shirt.  Why should I quietly sit back and let Congress vote in a health care bill that they won’t tell me about, and indeed we have no way of knowing what is in it, much less whether the House and Senate versions match word-for-word?

Mr. Obama’s response [to Brett Baier’s question]: “By the time the vote has taken place, not only will I know what’s in it, you’ll know what’s in it, because it’s going to be posted and everybody’s going to be able to evaluate it on the merits.”

Except it’s not going to be voted on… it’ll be “deemed and passed”.

Rep. Louise M. Slaughter, New York Democrat, defends tying the health care bills together. “There’s no way in the world we’d do anything unconstitutional,” she said. (Associated Press)

I’m mortally insulted that she feels I’m stupid enough to take her word (and ANY politician’s word) at that.


Steampunk Corset – simple idea, right?  That’s about all it is.

I don't like it. I need to start over on the darkness of the lines and the background.

But I had another idea for a Steampunk poster.  A many barrelled blunderbuss type gun called The Mimesweeper, featuring subsonic loads to silently take mimes out.  You can’t even hear them scream.  And the poster should have this faded image of a mime with his eyes wide open in utter terror just for that little something.  And then at the bottom, the gun mfr offers upgrades for every ten mime scalps you bring in.

I’d buy one.


The doc’s PA agrees, the sudden dramatic spike in pain is the nerves going nuts just before they die.  Too badk I’m sticking to this week to wean off the meds.  I’m way too tired of being doped up.  Grinding my teeth down at the moment but another two days of this, three tops, and I should be out of it.  Yahoo.
