Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

Well, we know at least one present won’t make it to my son’s waiting arms this year.

The bear I sent him – one of those little Teddy Snowflake&#169 numbers that his mom’s so damned fond of – got rejected at the door by a “P. Stewart”.

(For the uninitiated, that’s Steffi the Doublewide Bitch Supreme’s fat-assed son-of-a-bitch daddy, Paul Stewart.&#160 Same motherfucker who committed criminal tresspass back in 2003 when he barged into my house, uninvited – the Forney DA convinced me to subsequently drop the charges, something which I shortly thereafter wished I hadn’t done.)

Merry Christmas anyway, Skip.&#160 One day soon, I’ll get to tell you my side of the story – they won’t be able to keep me away from you for your entire life, try though they might.


ON THE OUTER RIM, AT THE REALM&#153-EMPIRE BORDER, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS “HOUSTON” – Janet El Re&#241o’s favorite Web browser, Netscape – or, as I’ve been known to call it, Nutscrape (and be honest, when was the last time you looked at the very bottom of this page, hm?), is going toes up on February 1st.

Let us now pause a moment to render the appropriate response to this news.


Thank you for your participation in this somber occasion. (snx)


As we launch the last episode of the Perfect Football Weekend, we’re making preparations for that favorite of all activities…

KORRIOTH:&#160 (raises eyebrow)

LSIK&T:&#160 Well, okay – second&#160 favorite.

KORRIOTH:&#160 Was gonna say.

LSIK&T:&#160 Hush, you.

KORRIOTH:&#160 (grunt)

…that being the cherished road trip.

OZY MCCOOL:&#160 Do we get to come this&#160 time, m’Liege?

LSIK&T:&#160 Sure, Ozy.&#160 I think there’s room in the trunk for you this year.

OZY MCCOOL:&#160 Aw, man

Anyway, the Horned Frogs of Texas Christian are going into hostile territory tonight – to the city of Houston, TX, to play in the Texas Bowl (formerly the EV1.net Houston Bowl) against – yeah, you guessed it – the Houston Cougars.&#160 And I’ll be right there with ’em.

MERLIN:&#160 Not terribly unlike four years ago when they hosted Boise State in their own bowl game.

LSIK&T:&#160 WHO???

MERLIN:&#160 Uh…Smurf Turf State?

LSIK&T:&#160 Better, Wizard.

MERLIN:&#160 Sorry, sir.

The Frogs are actually favored, but the entire game will hinge on how well the Swiss-cheese secondary handles the renowned Houston passing game.&#160 As it did two years ago, a field goal late will decide this one.

Small side note:&#160 Looks like the Frogs are once again the visitors, for jersey purposes, meaning they’ll wear all white.&#160 Oh, well – as long as they wear the purple pants…

Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys play a completely meaningless game against the Warshington Washington Fore Redskins to close out the NFL regular season.&#160 Other than the chance to get Terry Glenn some work and shoot for a franchise-record 14th regular-season victory, the game means less than squat.&#160 I’m not even gonna get pissed off should they lose – which’ll stick in LC John Wardle’s craw mercilessly.

K’HADIBAK’H:&#160 You are&#160 the sadistic one, aren’t you?

LSIK&T:&#160 Well, I do&#160 have a reputation to maintain.

OZY MCCOOL:&#160 Point.

Wednesday, Jan 2, the 4th-ranked Oklahoma Sooners get their toughest test of the year when they play in the Fiesta Bowl in Tempe, Arizona against the 9th-ranked West Virginia Mountaineers.&#160 The Mountaineers have two very dangerous offensive weapons in Pat White and Steve Slaton, so OU needs to have a care.&#160 I like OU, though, as long as Sam Bradford plays the entire game.

Monday, January 7, the PFW is proud to say that one of its teams – #2 LSU – goes up against #1 Ohio State University in the BCS championship game in New Orleans.&#160 A home game of sorts for the Tigers, they’re actually favored in this one, by 4&#189.&#160 Look for a defensive struggle, as both defenses would give the Detroit Lions absolute hell.

We’re back Tuesday, January 8th for the recap and benediction.&#160 In the meantime, perhaps the Humble Devildog will explain why Bucky is a two-point dog to UTennessee, of all teams…


Pakistani “opposition leader” and former prime minister Benazir Bhutto was killed in a suicide bombing earlier today.

I’ll be interested in seeing how Musharraf (sp?) responds.

UPDATE:&#160 Check that – looks like the cowardly little fucker shot her first, then blew himself up.

According to reports, the Pakistanis are blaming Musharraf for this somehow, but I don’t buy it.&#160 The SpatulaGoddess has reported that Al-Qaida’s taking responsibility – though why they’d want to help Mushie in that regard, I’ve no idea.

“Developing”, as Drudge would say…


So it’s a day late & a dollar short.&#160 Sue me.

But if the Christmas Scripture reading is a yearly tradition here in the Realm™, then so’s this.

As you were.&#160


Now in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census be taken of all the inhabited earth. This was the first census taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. And everyone was on his way to register for the census, each to his own city.

Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, in order to register along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child.

While they were there, the days were completed for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened.

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”

When the angels had gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds began saying to one another, “Let us go straight to Bethlehem then, and see this thing that has happened which the Lord has made known to us.” So they came in a hurry and found their way to Mary and Joseph, and the baby as He lay in the manger.

When they had seen this, they made known the statement which had been told them about this Child. And all who heard it wondered at the things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart.

The shepherds went back, glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen, just as had been told them.

—Luke 2:1-20 (NASB)

And may God add His blessings to the reading of His holy Word.

Merry Christmas, Denizens.&#160 This season, more than any other – remember why.


And thank you.

See you in Dallas next month?&#160


It’s the homestreach for the Perfect Football Weekend™ as we enter the bowl season in college football.&#160 Utah & Navy played in the Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego last night with the Midshipmen failing by three points to do me a favor and shut up the Baby Huey Ootes, 32-35.&#160 And tonight, Florida Atlantic “No One’s Ever Heard Of Us” University laid the wood to Memphis in the New Orleans Bowl, 44-27.

But tomorrow night is what I wanna talk about.&#160 The Dallas Cowboys travel to Carolina tomorrow to (presumably) lay a whipping on the quarterback-less Panthers – although I’d be wary of the rookie they’re starting, Matt Moore.&#160 Moore was one of the final cuts in Cowboy camp, and I was hoping they’d keep him – because he seems to have a Romo-like feel for the game, and a bazooka for an arm.

The C’boys are playing tomorrow night without Roy Williams, who was suspended due to Roger Goodell having his head up his ass.

People, lemme tell you something about this “horse-collar” rule they’ve got in the NFL now.&#160 Players have been tackling by the horse collar since the days of Methuselah.&#160 Sometimes ball carriers get hurt, sometimes they don’t.&#160 Football’s a contact sport, okay?&#160 Bodies collide, bones occasionally crack from the impact.&#160 As I noted previously, the interior cut-block, which continues to blow out linemen’s knees and end careers in some cases, is still perfectly legal, and taught by all 30 NFL offensive-line coaches.&#160 So why the pissy-faced angst over the horse collar?

I’ll tell you why – The Pussydelphia Beagles, that’s why.&#160 This half-assed excuse-for-a-franchise is the biggest bunch of tutu-wearing, sniveling bastards in the NFL – yes, even more so than the San Transexual Fairy Whiners.&#160 For only after a Williams tackle wound up breaking Widdle Terri Owens’ ankle a couple years ago did the NFL come up with the rule, ostensibly known as the “Roy Williams rule”.&#160 (And why Williams hasn’t yet sued the NFL for defamation of character, I can’t fathom.)

A couple years before that, if memory serves, The World’s Greatest Ever Quarterback Ever In The History Of Ever, Ever™, Donna McCrabbs, blew out his knee on a tackle.&#160 Bammo – the NFL promptly instituted a rule about tackling at the knees.

The fact is that if this were any other NFL team, nothing would have been done.&#160 If one of our receivers had broken their ankle as a result of a horse collar tackle, it wouldn’t be a rule today.&#160 But because it’s the Pussydelphia Beagles, the biggest bunch of fucking crybabies in the league, that league has to attach its lips firmly to the Beagles’ collective ass and pacify its butt-buddies.&#160 Fuck you, Widdle Woger Goodell.

We’re back Monday or Tuesday for the recap.&#160 In the meantime, a trip to Houston is on the horizon, about which I’ll tell you more next week.


The Department of How Not&#160 To Bring Up Your Daughters hands us yet another reason why Mama Spears’ tubes should have been tied:&#160 Her other&#160 daughter is pregnant with a bastard child now.

Oh – did I mention the other daughter’s only sixteen?&#160 And is pregnant by an eighteen-year-old?

MERLIN:&#160 A subject with which you’re intimately familiar, if memory serves.

LSIK&T:&#160 Shut up, old man, or you get to be the ball in Korrioth’s calisthenics program.

[Merlin blanches and shuts his mouth – he’s seen Korrioth’s calisthenics program.]

But what bugs the shit outta me is not so much the news of the pregnancy itself – it’s the reaction to it.

I mean, this is a fucking (pardon the pun) illegal act – technically, it qualifies as pedophilia.&#160 But not only are they not thinking of filing charges against the punk-ass “daddy”, not only are they not condemning this mini-Britney for the out-of-wedlock, way-too-damned-early sex in the first place – they seem to be actually celebrating the damned thing.

This is what our society has come to, Denizens.&#160 Instead of ripping the bimbo for doing what she did, we’re all but applauding her.&#160 And I hate to point this out, but when the jihiadist bastards criticize us for our Westernized corruption & decadance – this&#160 is what they point to.&#160 And it shames me to say they have a point.

And if they’ve&#160 noticed, guys, you can take it to the bank that God has noticed, as well – and He’s even less amused.

Remember this when this country is humbled at some future point.&#160 We reap what we sow – and there’s a helluva bumper crop coming.


Memo to the Cowboys:&#160 Congratulations – you just got beat by the biggest pussies in the NFL.

And yeah, you can quote me.

at Dallas 6, Pussydelphia 10

Not much to say about the game – Romo & company were off all day long, only in small part due to the Beagle defense.&#160 It’s irritating, but it happens sometimes – but, as sportscaster Dale Hansen says, “it better not happen again”.

But it’s the whining on the part of Pussydelphia which is what’s pissing me off.

Case in point #1:&#160 Early in the first quarter, Donna McCrabbs, the World’s Greatest Ever Quarterback Ever In The History Of Ever, Ever™, threw a pass to former TCU tight end Matt Schobel.&#160 Schobel caught the ball, then had his head nearly separated from his shoulders by a wicked Ken Hamlin shoulder hit.

Andrea “Fat Ass” Reid and the rest of the Pussydelphia coaching staff immediately began bleating that Hamlin led with his head.

Talk now is that Hamlin will supposedly be fined.&#160 For a legal hit.&#160 All because of Pussydelphia whining.

Which leads me to the other play.&#160 With about six minutes & change left in the first quarter, Widdle Donna McCrabbs found the heat in the kitchen not to his liking and took off on a scramble.&#160 Roy Williams caught him from behind and dropped him via the back of McAsshole’s collar.

Bammo – 15-yard horse-collar penalty.&#160 Williams got called for the penalty that’s supposedly named after him (and why he doesn’t sue the fucking NFL for defamation, I’ll never know – it’s not like no one else&#160 in the NFL ever tackles by the back of the collar, y’know?>

Here’s the deal on this so-called “horse collar penalty”:&#160 The NFL ostensibly outlaws the practice out of fear of hurting its players.&#160 Yet they continue&#160 to allow the interior cut-block, where an offensive lineman can, within the confines of the box surrounding the line of scrimmage, dive for an opposing defender’s knees.&#160 An AFC team – either Tennessee or San Diego, I don’t remember which – lost a lineman to a blown-out knee two weeks ago due to this legal&#160 blocking technique.

If the NFL is so damned fucking concerned about its players, why in the Hell™ is the cut-block not outlawed?


Uh-huh.&#160 Thought&#160 so…

This week:&#160 0-1.&#160 Overall:&#160 57-18.

The PFW returns Friday, when I tell you exactly why&#160 we have this stupid-assed “horse-collar” rule.&#160 (Here’s a hint – it has to do with Pussydelphia – the biggest bunch of sniveling crybabies in the NFL.)


Stephanie Dawn Stewart Crager – front and center.

Skip’s Christmas presents have shipped.&#160 Do yourself a favor and let him have them this&#160 year, hm?



As we ki…uh, launch&#160 this week’s edition of the Perfect Football Weekend…

KORRIOTH:&#160 Coward.

LSIK&T:&#160 Shut up, Bumpy.

KORRIOTH:&#160 (grunt)

…we note in passing that the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision Division 1-AA championship game gets played tonight, matching the University of Delaware vs. Appalachian (sic?) State.

State, if you’ll recall, upset the University of Michigan.&#160 Delaware’s uniforms…are the exact same design, right down to the helmet, only a few shades of blue lighter.

As I write this, State’s having far less trouble with this&#160 Wolverine-type-clad outfit – they’re up 21-0 close to halftime.

Sunday, the Dallas C’boys go for the sweep against the Phuckadelphia Beagles and The World’s Greatest Ever Quarterback Ever In The History Of Ever, Ever™, Donna McBlabb.

Earlier this year, prior to the game in Phucky, McBlabb was pontificating on how the Beagles had won the NFC East five of the past six years, and how the road to that division “came through Philadelphia”.

Uh, Donna?&#160 Not no mo’ it don’t.&#160

We’re back Monday or Tuesday for the recap.&#160 In the meantime, Delaware has just scored…and had it answered by App State.&#160 The rout is on.


Memo to San Fran Nan Piglosi, Shrieker of the House:

No, bitch, we’re not necessarily fond of this war, as you so stupidly put it.&#160 But when you were finally forced to back your ugly ass down a bit, you were absolutely right:&#160 we did – and do – support President Bush on it.

But if there is&#160 a war to which I’m looking forward…it’d probably be the one that’s coming.

I’ll let you&#160 guess which one that might be.&#160 Here’s a hint, Cupid Stunt™:&#160 better be armed and ready.



After last year’s Detroit debacle, this game scared the shit outta me.

And with good reason.

Dallas 28, at Detroit 27

More quarterback ghod-age from Romo – another 300-yard day, another two-minute comeback, etc, etc, ad infinitum, ad nauseam.&#160 15 catches for 138 for Jason Witten, which helped him either tie or set a couple of records (one NFL (tied), one franchise (set)).

But for 59 minutes and 42 seconds, it looked as if this was going to be another embarrassing Detroit victory.&#160 Jon Kitna & crew saw from the Green Bay tapes what you can do to the Dallas defense with a short passing game.&#160 The fact is that the Cowboys secondary just isn’t that good.&#160 They play too damned far off the ball, allowing a plethora of short-to-midrange stuff underneath – which is how Philly, Carolina and the Deadskins are gonna play them the next three weeks.

And if they haven’t figured it out by then, they can expect to see a heavy dose of it in the playoffs.

I mean, really.&#160 Is it too much to ask the secondary to play in a couple steps or so?&#160 Are they that&#160 afraid that Detroit’s backup receivers (one of whom had just signed that week) are gonna beat ’em deep?&#160 Or that, if Philly sacked Kitna eight times by playing a blitzing four-man front, maybe they should ditch their own 3-4 for a week?&#160 Hmmmmmm?

This week:&#160 1-0 – PFW achieved.&#160 (Yeah, I know it’s only a one-game week, but remember UBuffalo let me down on one of those a few weeks back.&#160 So it counts.&#160 Neener.&#160 (grin))&#160 Overall:&#160 57-17.

The PFW returns Friday, when I once again make fun of The Greatest Ever Quarterback Ever In the History Of Ever, Ever™, Fat Wilma’s Little Kid.


[Scene:&#160 aboard Pegasus.&#160 The debris from the quantum filament wreckage has been cleared, and thanks to round-the-clock efforts on the part of a stellar crew, the ship looks as if it had just left the Realm™ shipyard.

Chief Engineer Ozymandias McCool has inserted the last transtator control module onto his Engineering station on the bridge.&#160 Pegasus&#160 has responded with an audible hum/whirring sound (not terribly unlike how Enterprise&#160 responded to Scotty in Where No Man Has Gone Before, if you think about it), and Ozy turns to Lord Spatula I, King & Tyrant, obviously pleased with himself.&#160 His Rudeness™, obviously bemused with his chief engineer’s bravado, can’t resist a small grin, as well.]

OZY MCCOOL:&#160 Eminence, full power has been restored.

LSIK&T:&#160 Excellent.&#160 Helm, set a course for the Badlands, warp 3.&#160 Mr. McCool, I think a field promotion to Lieutenant Commander is in order for you.

OZY MCCOOL (blushing, though quite pleased with himself despite it all):&#160 You’re too kind, m’Lord.&#160 Thank you greatly.

LSIK&T:&#160 It’s well-earned, Ozy.&#160 Now, you’ll still have to pass the LC’s test when we get home, but I doubt it’ll pose much trouble for you.

KORRIOTH:&#160 Yes, just correctly identify the porn stars and you’re in.

LSIK&T:&#160 Hush, you.


Okay, Denizens, Spatula City BBS! is up and functional once again.&#160 And, as promised – well, almost as promised – the first second post starts with the Perfect Football Weekend™:
