One small tug for mankind……

I feel it’s time that I step up and take credit for introducing one of the oldest jokes in America to a new audience in a country that was a part of the former Soviet Union, Ukraine. 

On my last trip Ukraine, visiting with the family and friends of my wife, I had the opportunity to pull the oldest gag I know of, the famous “Pull My Finger” routine, probably passed (so to speak) from uncles to nephews since the caveman days.  

I’m sure that my buildup of gas on that day, was due to the food I’d been eating for a few days, borscht being the prime suspect. So, feeling the, uh… pressing need to step outside and relieve myself of said gas, I motioned for my 14 year old nephew-in-law to step out on the balcony with me for a minute.

He wasn’t clear on what this was about, and because of a language barrier I couldn’t explain it, so we just walked out the door. He wasn’t sure if what I was motioning to him about meant for him, but he took the chance and translating my sign language, pulled on my finger.

Wham…Blam…Thank you Sam-O-Var!!! No “silent but deadly” fart there, it was more like the old fashioned mid-West American “barn burner” variety.

Sasha was doubled over in laughter.  After a few minutes his eyes stopped watering (from the joke, not the fart), and we were able to go back inside to have lunch, which of course included borscht. After about 20 minutes, I saw him motion to his father to step out on the balcony, and the “rite of passage” took on a new meaning there, in a small town a few hundred kilometers East of Kiev. 

And that’s the way it was, meanwhile, back in the USA……

Are you still doing it doggie style?

That’s a question for Todd when he has Sarah bent over the sled’s handlebar.

In accordance with the published and SPCA approved official Iditarod rules, before sled sex, all sled dogs must be first disconnected from the harness. This also is just common sense, as the team may get frightened by sudden high pitched squeaky noises, and run off leaving two embarrassed ( and perhaps bare-assed as well) people standing in the snow. There’s nothing in those rules about the participants in the snow drift sex using or not using a harness, but again, we hope common sense will prevail.

Here’s a noteworthy statement from Todd Palin, a guy who went off to Alaska as sort of a skinny guy, but came back a real husky fucker:

If you’re not the lead sled dog, the view of the bitch in front seldom changes“.

Johnny, Ya Betcha We Hardly Knew Ya!

John Sidney McCain,  it sure looks like you were set up and then blindsided by Karl Rove…..

You were totally manipulated like so much fodder to be used to blow off this election, and put the republicans in a better position for the next one, as whoever won this misbegotten race would be stuck with cleaning up this huge tragic mess that was left by the Bush administration, and end up looking like a tool no matter what they were able to do, knowing that it’s an undoable repair. 

Much in the same way a professional pool player will take what looks like a wasted shot that accomplishes nothing, what Rove has done is set up a patsy (no offense) to let the Democrats win this election and take the heat for the little to nothing that will be done during the next four years, thereby setting up a slam dunk for whoever will run in the 2012 election.

Sadly, that won’t be you, as you’ll be nearing 80 years of age, and that’s going to be just too hard of a sell to make to the youth vote. But if it’s any consolation, it won’t be that Snowbilly either, when you lose she will have to crawl back to Alaska with the stink of failure all over her, and she’ll have to deal with her own crisis as her ethics trials will still be going on.

The real loser here? Trig Palin. That poor little kid will most likely dumped in a hospital’s waiting room somewhere in Nebraska since he won’t be of any use for her campaign any longer.

Dear Dear Wonkette, R.I.P.

There was a time when the best part of my (Non-working) day was going through the various posts on a politically oriented web site known as “Wonkette“, it was truly a great site with snarky humor of the blow milk out your nose style.

Sadly, over the past few months it has changed into a money making enterprise that is limited in what sort of comments it will allow to be published, I have to think this is based on a desire to not piss off their big money advertisers. I’m not against someone making money, I can understand that motivation, even though I have no sponsors to worry about losing. I still scan through their comments, and I’ll even post sometimes using different email addresses to get past the filter that otherwise will keep me off.

It’s just so sad, knowing what it used to be like before the Managing Editor, Ken Layne, started his Jihad, banning and outright deleting comments, even going so far as to brag about it in a column titled BINGE & PURGE a few days ago.

So, yeah, R.I.P. Wonkette

I miss all the “tehs”, “gayz”, and the other often used inside sort of jokes, but not enough to stalk it very much on a regular basis anymore.

Hey, It’s Funny Photos Time!!!

Tina Fey revealed to be a Vulcan? Does she get to say “Live Long and Perspire, it’s Saturday Night Live” when she’s (pardon the expression) doing Sarah Palin?

Isn’t McCain doing a perfect imitation of “Calvin” from Calvin and Hobbes?

Quick Barack, jump into the  transmografier!

Dick Cheney below, shown in his Halloween costume from last year. The news is that this will be his way of blending in next year when he and “W” run off to live in extradition proof Abu Dhabi.

Speaking of Halloween, remember to drink in moderation, or this could happen to you:

Do you think the lines extending from the butt shown in the drawing below are to show which direction you should move your ass, or do they represent the physical results you may have from shots fired just over your head?

Never one to give up on her lost cause, Laura teaches and preaches to the choir.

What!!! I’m In Agreement With McCain???

Yes, it’s true. During the debate last night John McCain told Barack Obama that he, the one that’s often called “McSame”, was actually not George W. Bush. Most people would say that’s very obvious because Bush isn’t that old. Or that short. Or that pale (white).

Well, to quote the Firesign Theatre, “How can you be in two places at once when you’re nowhere at all” A quick study of the records backs this up, since it can be seen that he voted exactly the same way as Bush, but only did it 90% of the time. So yes, he’s really his own man, at least 10% of the time.

However, I’m still waiting for a confirmation based on his DNA before I will accept this 100%

In a somewhat non-related news event, Big Dick Cheney has once again made fools of his detractors.

He did this by having a doctor confirm that he does indeed have a heart. Sure, a really tiny, twisted and defective black heart that can be examined best by a proctologist, but (no pun intended there) it’s proven that he actually has a heart even though he has no idea of how to use it.
