Saturday Morning Weird News [Mis. Hum.]

sat morn thread .jpg


Grab your favorite beverage. Relax, it is Saturday after all.

***Update: Mystery OB has been identified***

Here are a few things that didn't make The Dumps this past week. It is an amazing world at times, isn't it? Hey, it's an open thread. No running with sharp objects and play nice with the others.


  • This guy doesn't seem like a Tombstone Pizza guy

  • WTH is up with pizza and Florida?

  • Go Granny Go!!!

  • ONT's have been pants optional for quite some time. Its now spread to Berlin

  • Sounds like fun, like eating Lutefisk or Kaboom

  • Her name is not Jenny nor is her phone number 867-5309

  • Surprised none of the charges include being dumber than a box of rocks

  • The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. Government is way too big

  • Truly a head butt scratcher

    Hey Morons, have a wonderful weekend. Be safe. Be well.

    Everything ok at your house? No flooding I hope.

    Posted by: Tami at August 20, 2016 08:52 AM (Enq6K)

    21 So I'm watching my sister's kitten, which is a very cute Siamese fluffball. I think she has destroyed half the contents of my (old) home. I haven't even gotten into my new home yet because we are renting the first year while we decide what to do with our two old places. The landlord doesn't allow pets so I haven't spent a single night in our new place yet. Meanwhile my white sofa is taking a beating, my hands continually smell of gourmet cat food, and my newish husband can't find the pots and pans.


    Thus endeth the whining for today.

    Yeah, we're far from it, tucked up in the "top left" corner of the state. A friend is down there helping family and my church is already organizing two trips down there to help out.

    And the forecast for today changed from scary to normal, so all's gut.

    Doylestown is *not* Philadelphia.

    31 I clicked on the drunk driving story, and followed it to another link:

    "Woman surrenders cats after 92 cats, found dead, alive in her home"

    That is a masterpiece of headline writing right there.

    Anyway. I didn't watch the video, but if you look at the still image on the video, it shows cat crates piled up all over the place. Mentally substitute books for cat crates, and that's about what the inside of my house looks like.

    Phew! Good to hear you're all ok!
    All's well here. Finally got my SIL into rehab....poor dear had to go to Hawaii and did nothing but bitch about it. It's a Teen Challenge place and her twin lives in Hawaii and knows the people that run it so we were able to get her in pretty easily.

    It was exhausting for about a month but hopefully it works. We shall see....

    37 I was a daily morning commute listener to Smerconish until he felt it was his civic duty to vote for Barak the first time. I hope it cleansed his soul but wouldn't know I don't give him the time of day.

    Lol! Yeah....and we kept telling her she was bringing too many clothes. When my husband took her to the airport, she was $200 over in luggage weight. Hubby took her luggage opened it up and started taking crap out. Got it down to only costing an extra $100.

    At one point he found cowboy boots and said "Really?! You need these in Hawaii?" Her response: "Yeah, I might want to wear them with my swimsuit."

    She's a 52 yo permanently stuck at 15.

    Thanks for that. I've always wondered exactly how Republicans should make that argument, and I think Trump did a fine job.

    69 They're doing tuckpointing on my building and the residents were told to close their windows and pull down the blinds during the work because the dust gets everywhere. But I had the windows open last night because it was cool enough to avoid turning on the AC.

    So this morning at 7 I'm awakened by a racket and I see the legs of the two guys right outside my bedroom window. I yelled out "Crap! I didn't think you guys would be working on Saturday!" I got up, closed all my windows and turned on the AC because even though it's cool outside it gets awfully hot in here quickly with the windows shut. Now it's raining and the construction guys, having accomplished their goal of getting me out of bed, are gone.

    okay okay, I give up I'm sorry, honestly, I didn't even realize that's where the link went to until I posted it, I watched it on a friends timeline, and there was nothing about Alex Jones in the information, but when I clicked to copy the url, that's where it took me, to his FB page.

    It was just a funny spoof with Obama and Trump and others in 300 scene. Just thought it was sorta funny.

    I will self embarrel myself for smearing this thread with dirtiness.

    72 "A nice review of Trump's speech yesterday."

    It's been amazing, once he finally got on the prompter for the big addresses, and calmed down his undisciplined extemporizing. And he went for a week with various Democratic proxies trying to rudely prod him into going after them personally with an angry response, and he did not give them the satisfaction.

    All the things he had been doing wrong, he's starting to do right. The New Trump.

    He also needs to run a bunch of commercials. His speeches over the past week have really been great, but the msm is going to ignore anything he says unless he puts his foot in his mouth. Giving great speeches to people who are already going to vote for him won't be enough.

    79 Some of his comments did leak out onto CNN (which IMO is an even worse site than Alex Jones's). Where he asked blacks "what the hell do you have to lose".

    89 37 I was a daily morning commute listener to Smerconish until he felt it was his civic duty to vote for Barak the first time. I hope it cleansed his soul but wouldn't know I don't give him the time of day.
    Posted by: Skip at August 20, 2016 09:06 AM (bksJQ)


    Oh, I remember that very well. Smerconish portrayed himself as a conservative, and was a big supporter of Bush's "War on Terror". In retrospect, it appears that he was a "9/11 conservative" like a certain Bicycle Boy many of us remember.

    During the 2008 campaign, he said that he was keeping an open mind and would vote for whoever he thought would "get bin Laden". I would roll my eyes whenever he said that. I knew bloody well that he was going to vote for Obama. He kept teasing his endorsement for months, and when he finally came out and said it, I turned him off and never listened again.

    I'm sure he felt all smug and justified when Obama finally "got" bin Laden.

    • Aaaand... "...nurse waved me into the surgery room.... Once I was inside the surgery room, the nurse told me to take off my pants and lie down on the bed. At the time, I was a little doubtful, but I thought that this would make me just like my wife giving birth. So I took my pants off."

    A little doubtful??? Was he hoping to get some (while his wife was giving birth!) or just really, reallllly stupid?

    118 "Smerconish portrayed himself as a conservative"

    I knew relatively little about the guy, Smirk being pretty much an east coast thing, until someone handed me his book. In which he initially purported to be a fearless foe of left-wing political correctness.

    Okay, I hate the PC nonsense, I'll give the book a go. It started off in a vaguely promising way.

    Instead, partway through the book, Smirk recounted having had an African-American gentleman call in to his radio show. This fellow then claimed on the air that America's automotive, aerospace, computer, and telecommunications industries had actually all been created in their entirety by black people. And that Whitey, who had no innovative role in any of this, had then dishonestly stolen all of those black people's technological creations and all of the profits they were due.

    Wait, what?

    Smirk turned out to be so favorably impressed with this line of reasoning, such as it was, that he actually invited this lunatic conspiracy theorist in as a welcome studio guest on Smirk's radio show, instead of referring him to the nut hut.

    I tossed the book at that point. Life's too short to be reading bad books, and especially not by authors intent on taking the nonstop express train to Crazytown.

    119 The University of Toronto's elite University College has been forced to recognize the existence of two genders and re-establish separate washrooms for male and female students sharing its co-ed residences.

    The move was provoked by two separate incidents in mid-September of male students holding their cell phones above the shower stall dividers in so-called gender-neutral communal washrooms at Whitney Hall, a co-ed residence at the University College, to record female students showering.

    215 How can you afford the data? I'm serious. There has to be something I'm missing. On a grandfathered no limit data plan or what?

    on a cabled connection, like xfinity or Verizon, there is no data limit. You pick the speed you want in mbs at that's the limit. I have had four tvs streaming, one laptop downloading, and two internet connected phones running simultaneously. On a 25 mps connection. Cost? About 80.00 per month.

    216 Dumping paperwork in a dumpster is a well worn public employee trick. We had a clerk who was always caught up with his work...great news, until someone caught him filling up his briefcase with papers, then dumping them in the dumpster on the way to his car.

    217 On the subject of homoeroticism in "Ben-Hur", there is a scene in the book and I believe the 1959 film where Masala tells Judah that he is his "Ganymede."

    There it is. They were catamites.



    Maybe Masala wanted Judah, but I don't think Judah wanted Masala.
