Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

Denizens, The Six Or Seven Of You&#153 may have noticed that This Fine Blog&#153 looks a little different today than yesterday.

What it boils down to is that I widened the page just a skosh…

KORRIOTH (slightly twisted face, as if he doesn’t understand what I just said):&#160 A “skosh”?

VENOMOUS:&#160 Yes, Kor.&#160 A skosh.

KORRIOTH (with a slight dip of his bumpy head):&#160 As you wish, m’lord.


KORRIOTH:&#160 And I happen to like&#160 my head, TendJewBerryMud&#153

[His Rudeness&#153 looks sideways at Merlin]

VENOMOUS:&#160 It’s gonna be OneOfThoseDays&#153, isn’t it?

MERLIN:&#160 Don’t look at me, Purple Eyes.&#160 You&#160 started it.

VENOMOUS (looking resignedly skyward):&#160 Damned non-union labor…


Okay, where were we…?

KORRIOTH:&#160 “Skosh”.

Oh, yeah.&#160 Right.

Anyway, it just looks a little better – and it paves the way for the new banner up at the top there.

OZY MCCOOL:&#160 Mark Davis been giving you hell about the upside-down flags again?

VENOMOUS:&#160 Mark Davis gives me hell about nothing, Ozy.&#160 At least he – unlike some&#160 fictitious people I know – knows better.

K’HADIBAK’H:&#160 Had to remind us that we’re all figments of your imagination again, didn’t you?

VENOMOUS:&#160 Would you all prefer that I exercise my option to lay all your fictitious, non-union asses off?&#160 Economy’s hitting me hard too, y’know.

CREW:&#160 Eep.

Anyway, the banner serves two purposes:&#160 1) it’s new, sort of, and I like the way it looks, and 2) it’s in tribute and ideological solidarity with the folks over at Sipsey Street Irregulars, the link to which you’ll find down there on the left.

Henceforth, let the libtards beware.&#160 We Are Everywhere&#153…heh…heh…heh…&#160


This is an interesting video, enjoy.


My lovely and gracious bride of almost thirty years, found this.

Spew warnings in effect!


I feel a rant binge coming on.&#160

But before I get started this evening, the Comment Of The Day&#153 belongs to Prendad over at Michelle’s site:

I finally got around to going fishing this morning – but after a while, I ran out of worms. Then I saw a cottonmouth with a frog in his mouth, and frogs are good bass bait.

Knowing the snake couldn’t bite me with the frog in his mouth, I grabbed him right behind the head, took the frog and put it in my bait bucket. Now the dilemma was how to release the snake without getting bitten – I grabbed my bottle of Jack Daniels and poured a little whiskey in its mouth. His eyes rolled back, he went limp! I released him into the lake without incident and carried on with my fishing, using the frog as bait.

A little later, I felt a nudge on my foot.. There was that damn snake with two frogs in his mouth!


I could learn to like respect this guy.

(Via Breitbart)

The mayor of Moscow, known for his overtly homophobic statements uncommonly good common sense (Fixed it for ya, Andy&#160 -DV), said Monday that he would never allow a gay pride parade in the city, calling it “Satanic” and saying marchers should be punished.

“A gay parade… cannot be called anything but a Satanic act,” Yury Luzhkov told an education conference, quoted by Interfax news agency. “We haven’t permitted such a parade and we won’t permit it in the future.”

Hmmmm.&#160 And it’s bitterly cold in winter, too…

I may have to contact the SpatulaGoddess Emeritus and persuade her to take me on a tour.&#160

Luzhkov called for gay marchers to be punished. “It’s high time that we stop propagating nonsense discussions about human rights, and bring to bear on them the full force and justice of the law,” he said.

Day-um.&#160 Can we nationalize him and have him run for president?

(There is&#160 precedent, y’know.)


This has been making the email rounds. Looks like it just might have possibilities:

What a clever idea! Yes, Christmas cards. This is coming early so that you can get
ready to include an important address to your list.

Want to have some fun this CHRISTMAS? Send the ACLU a CHRISTMAS CARD this year.

As they are working so very hard to get rid of the CHRISTMAS part of this holiday, we should all send them a nice, CHRISTIAN card to brighten up their dark, sad, little world.

Make sure it says “Merry Christmas” on it.

Here’s the address, just don’t be rude or crude. (It’s not the Christian way, you know.)

125 Broad Street
18th Floor
New York , NY 10004

Two tons of Christmas cards would freeze their operations because they wouldn’t know if any were regular mail containing contributions.

So spend 44 cents and tell the ACLU to leave Christmas alone.

Also tell them that there is no such thing as a “Holiday Tree”. . . It’s always been called a CHRISTMAS TREE!

And pass this on to your email lists. We really want to communicate with the ACLU! They really DESERVE us!!

For those of you who aren’t aware of them, the ACLU, (the American Civil Liberties Union) is the one suing the U.S. Government to take God, Christmas or anything Christian away from us. They represent the atheists and others in this war.

Help put Christ back in Christmas!


I will leave it to others to discuss more fully, but yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the first internet connection. Read about it here.

Looking at what has happened in the past 40 years makes me wonder what will happen in the next 40.


For your Monday morning chuckle, Denizens, we present a typical shopping list:

(Click on the pic for the full-sized version.)



You may have noticed a slight change to the port sidebar.

Nice, huh?&#160

Thanks to the kind folks over at Clearspring.com for thinking this one up.


(Hat tip Hot Air.)

Last month, Stormin’s Morning Java noticed Yet Another Gaffe&#153 by Al-Obambi.

How’d that ad used to go?&#160 “Texas:&#160 It’s A Whole Other Country”?&#160


I’d say that this sounds like a Come Say It To My Face&#153 if I ever heard one:

Actor Alec Baldwin’s joke about getting a Filipino mail-order bride provoked a sharp response in the Philippines, with one senator saying Monday that the “30 Rock” star faces violence if he ever visits.

“Let him try to come here in the Philippines and he’ll see mayhem,” Revilla said, using a local idiom that implies the speaker will personally administer a beating.

I think I could learn to like this guy…&#160


Denizen & fellow blogger Alan K. Henderson has his 2009 predictions here.

Since I still don’t feel like writing anything, go over there and have a look.&#160 Go.&#160 Shoo.


If you go down the sidebar a bit, just before you get to the StatCounter, you’ll see this:

That comes from a little something over which the pussified Republicans in Snohomish County, WA, got their panties in a slight bunch.

A controversial three dollar bill may have brought Republicans and Democrats together to agree on something.

The bill, which was sold at the Evergreen State Fair’s Republican Party booth in Snohomis County, Washingotn, features Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama wearing a headdress, propelling a widespread myth that he is Muslim.

Except I’m not so terribly sure that is is&#160 a myth, y’know?

Some call it a joke, but not everyone is laughing.

Which just goes to show you how linguini-spined the Republican party has become in Washington State.&#160 But then, that’s what happens when the only “principle” for which one stands there is “Ooooooh, pwease wike me – pweeeeeze???”

Obama is, in fact, a Christian.

Yeah, well, that’s&#160 eminently open for debate.

Carol Ronken snapped a picture of the bill, and then called the local newspaper. “It’s racist. It’s disgusting,” said Ronken.

Carol, honeybunch, you’re&#160 full of shit, bitchy and repulsive.&#160 So how’s it feel having invective tossed back at you like that, hm?

Republican county chair Geri Modrell said she never approved the bill, but insisted the bills were nothing more than a very bad joke. She has asked volunteers to put them away.

And had I been a volunteer, I’d have told her to go pound sand.&#160 It’s a damn funny novelty item, and it’s sure to piss off Demoscum.

Which, of course, is why it’s now on my sidebar.

Cheri DeShaw, whose booth sat right across from the Republican Party’s at the fair, said she has heard an earful from visitors.

Oh, I’m sure she has.&#160 And I’m equally sure that she’s faced them with puppy-dog eyes, begging for forgiveness for something she didn’t even do.&#160 And then the Washington State GOP wonders why few like them.

To them, I say this:&#160 Lookie here, chumps.&#160 The Constitution guarantees us freedom of speech – even speech that happens to offend folks from time to time.&#160 No one has a right to never be offended, and the quicker you jackasses up there learn that, the better.&#160 Besides, if you whine and whimper apologies to every buttmunch who ever gets “offended” about something, that’s all you’ll ever spend your time doing.

Not terribly productive, if you ask me.

Modrell said she is working to track down the person responsible, but does not plan to conduct an intensive investigation. She said it is tough enough to recruit volunteers and does not want to alienate another.

“It’s not the policy of this party to use that low level sense of humor,” Modrell said.

Yeah, well, Geri, maybe it should be.&#160 And maybe you should re-evaluate your definition of “low level sense of humor”.

Moreover, you should track down the creator of that bill ASAP.

To buy him a beer.


Denizens, The Six Or Seven Of You Who Still Read Me&#153 may remember that some time back, This Fine Blog&#153 rated a whopping 31.4% on “The Blog & Website Cuss-O-Meter”, presented by the fine folks at OnePlusYou.

At the time, I opined that:

I’m not fucking trying fucking hard enough.

Well, it seems that business is picking up as we approach election season:

Now.&#160 That’s fucking more like it.&#160


Steampunk replicas are fine, for some people.

For others only a full-scale, almost 100% working replica built in a garage will do.

Check this gear-geek project out.

I’d give this guy a “12” on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being hawt).
