Saturday Overnight Open Thread (2/20/21)

The Saturday Night Joke

Sitting in a bar the Scotsman says, "As good as this bar is, I still prefer the pubs back home. In Glasgow, there's a wee place called McTavish's. The landlord goes out of his way for the locals. When you buy four drinks, he'll buy the fifth drink."

"Well, Angus," said the Englishman, "At my local in London , the Red Lion, the barman will buy you your third drink after you buy the first two."

"Ahhh, dat's nothin'," said the Irishman, "back home in my favorite pub, the moment you set foot in the place, they'll buy you a drink, then another, all the drinks you like, actually. Then, when you've had enough drinks, they'll take you upstairs and see that you gets laid, all on the house!"

The Englishman and Scotsman were suspicious of the claims. The Irishman swore every word was true.

Then the Englishman asked, "Did this actually happen to you?"

"Not meself, personally, no," admitted the Irishman, "but it did happen to me sister quite a few times."

The ONT Musical Interlude

The Musical Interlude is a wee bit different tonight.

35 of the most important songs about butts. Agree or disagree?

AND


An interesting take on John Mellencamp's "Jack and Diane" song.

A Cover of John Mellencamp's 'Jack and Diane' With Most of the Lyrics Sung As 'Sucking on a Chili Dog'


AND


Boomer Anthems : Nights In White Satin.

Is this the next cultural battle. If the toilet paper hanging war wasn't bad enough, now there is the trash bag installation war.

Troll Level Status: Master. Vegan protest trolled by young man eating KFC. Hilarious.

I have a trail camera. I've never thought of doing this. And I probably won't. What happens to a pizza left in the woods?

Who does not love pizza? No one that we know, and if you know someone who hates it, well, they are not normal. Hey, we're just saying. Now, there have been plenty of recorded instances of animals scarfing down pizza too. However, did you ever stop to think what would happen if you left a pizza unguarded in the woods?

Probably not, but the guy behind AceVlogs did. He sets up a couple trail cameras and then proceeds to test three different types of pizza left in the forest.

How not to clean your roof of snow

"I noticed that he had an obvious erection protruding in his shorts,” a cop reported." And that my friend is how you become a Genius Award Winner.

FEBRUARY 18--A man who was spotted pleasuring himself inside a Kia in a Walmart parking lot told Florida cops that he was “lonely” because his former girlfriend was in Colorado, according to an arrest report.

Police were summoned yesterday afternoon to a Walmart in Vero Beach by a woman who reported that a man who was parked next to her was masturbating while behind the wheel of a car that had its driver’s side window open.

Upon arriving at the parking lot, cops stopped a Kia with out-of-state plates and asked the driver to exit the vehicle. When Kyle Weiss, 26, stepped out of his car, there was little doubt he was the suspect being sought: “I noticed that he had an obvious erection protruding in his shorts,” a cop reported.

Weiss initially denied exposing himself, and claimed that he was at the retailer “as a food shopper,” adding that “his business is like Uber Eats, buying food and delivering it to customers.”


I believe it is "Price Rollbacks" not pants rollback.

12 Now that I've been Horde-membered, I'd like to make a suggestion. Wouldn't it be awesome if ace simply ignored Twitter for a week or two.

We'd miss all the drama from the NeverTrumpers, of course, but that drama is nothing more than them being stabbed in the back. And being startled that they never expected it.

Let's ignore the dying screams of the NeverTrumpers, whether from the Lincoln Project, or Fox News, or wherever they come from. Let them die in the silence they sought.

30 Fake Biden "Wins Praise."

I notice they perfected this formulation under Trump.

So Trump could do something that was 99% popular and awesome but by headlining an article and populating it with a few muh tweets, they could say Trump "Draws Criticism".

And still be telling the truth, for as much as they really care about that. But mostly it's just a lesson in how to set a Narrative.

Riparian entertainments sock off. Fat Bottomed Girls was written by Dr. Brian May, Ph.D, CBE. Rocker and astrophysicist, quoth he thus:

I was just a skinny lad,
never knew no good from bad.
But I knew about life from my nursery.
Left alone with big fat Fanny,
She was such a naughty nanny,
Heap big woman, you made a bad boy outta me.

Day #3 without water, but plumber is supposed to be coming by tomorrow. Hopefully it will be an easy fix.

DD#3 is truly a pampered woman-child; she is aghast at having to go this long without a shower or a flushable toilet.

We told her that if she has a problem with it, she can pay to stay in a hotel.

68 When we had the power outage here, we were using the wood stove a lot to stay less than freezing in the house, but ran out of wood. A run to the store revealed that, well, pretty much everyone else in the city was in the same state.

All that was left in the wood section of any store was one place, with a big stack of pressed logs from KFC promising the smell of the Colonels' herbs and spices when you burned them.

Strangely no one wanted that in their house, let alone at 9 bucks a package of 3 logs.

75 Speaking of consoles in cars, old joke:

A husband and wife were driving down the road, when the wife spotted an obviously young and in love couple heading down the road, with the young lady snuggled up close to her guy who had his arm around her as he drove.

The woman sighed, looked at her husband, and said, "Remember when we used to do that?"

The husband turned his attention from the road, looked at his wife, and said, "I haven't moved."

76 Teresa,
In our STHF scenario, we have a creek about 1/4 mile away. Urban, but no runoff, so clean... but also about 150' lower than us.

The only reason she is still at home is because she is bipolar, and we saw what my parents had to go through with my sister when she lived "on her own".

She is ungrateful.

There was one comment relevant to to the joke and the spirit of families, especially really new ones. Behold the greatest comment ever from the family chalkboard in the family restroom at my local pub where I am doing what you do at a local pub:

The 1958 Plymouth Fury was a car I wanted to own after seeing that movie. Just for shits and giggles, I looked for a Fury for sale and guess how much they go for today.

85-100k.

157 Most old cars are crap. I particularly liked the segment they did on Top Gear where they took a pretty ordinary modern sedan and raced it against a 1980s top end Ferrari.

The Ferrari did not do well, it just couldn't corner as well, had less pickup, I mean it was faster overall but on their track it was just left behind.

But if you restomod those old cars from the 70s and back, you can make a real dream.

160 Well finally got in The Cold Blue who's delivery had been delayed by the extreme cold weather.

One of the surviving 8th AF veterans opens by singing his adaptation of a popular song. People waiting for the arrival of Memphis Belle on her war bond tour. We are then treated to seeing the bomber do a low flyover before landing. Vets talking of fighting the cold, taking their mask off and hitting it to break the ice that formed inside. Of them wanting fresh eggs but knowing being served eggs sunny side up meant this mission was going to be rough. Bailing out of a crippled Fortress and one making it to the ground only to be killed by pitchforks.

Since the original footage was shot on 16mm cameras without sound, sound had to be added. All B-17 sounds were recorded on the now destroyed B-17G Nine-O-Nine. The restorers had to remove a defect that was caused by the original film development, blue lines that was in every scene. The colors really pop now, no longer is everything muddy and muted. Dame Satan is really rocking the red. In Der Fuhrer's Face the flowers are now Disney bright.

My part of Austin just had it's 4th day without water. I filled my large tub with potable water for cooking and washing up. We've collected another bath tub and a few bins of snow melt from our roof to flush toilet. We're still looking at a few if not several more days before we get running water again. I haven't had hot running water since the Friday before when my tankless heaters froze. Not sure if they are still functional until we get running water again. Went to a friends for our first showers in over a week today. This past week has been....interesting...

One of my best friends brought his boat down to Ocean City, MD. My parents had a "beach house" there. During one of our "outings" we busted the windshield and trashed the outboard. Honestly could have killed ourselves if not for the alcohol.

Once in a lifetime event... having the Harbor Patrol pay you a visit. At your house. While on the phone with your parents. Explaining why there's no "there there."

Yea, that.

Up to mid 90s I think I'd say crispy. Because it was this massive yummy crispy structure encasing chicken meat. But they changed their recipe and since then not as much crisp and original tastes better.
--------
Same here, used to like crispy, but somewhere in the past 20 years the recipe changed, and not for the better. The grilled is better for me, but if I wanted that I could get rotisserie chicken from grocery deli.

That's what they do, after all.

Honestly, Chi-Town, you don't actually BELIEVE the numbers on CCP flu they put out, do you?
The CCP flu count includes Chicago gangbangers with two to the back of the head (yes, true) and other nonsense. Auto crashes, drownings, other stuff.
Oh, and remember, every "Covid" patient in the hospital got that hospital some sweet, sweet FedGov money. If the hospital got them on a respirator because of "Covid", they got a cool $13,000 extra. At least that was in the early days. DNK if the FedGov shut down that money-printing machine.
And yes, seasonal flu and pneumonia deaths were down 95%+ in 2020. As if by magic.

Actually, it's on the CDC site. You have to dig around a bit but it said something like only 8-9% of deaths could be attributed purely to COVID without any comorbidities. I remember reading it and a few other did too.

Posted by: lin-duh 27-4 at February 20, 2021 10:49 PM (UUBmN)

262 What would the flu deaths be every year if they were counted the same way COVID deaths were.

Exactimundo. According to the CDC, if you take away all those "died with" deaths then the numbers are pretty much the same as an average flu year.

263 Comorbidities
Table 3 shows the types of health conditions and contributing causes mentioned in conjunction with deaths involving coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death. The number of deaths with each condition or cause is shown for all deaths and by age groups.

341 exdem13, Honore has already claimed that 30% of the police force at the Capitol are Trumpsters.

And nationally President Trump supporters are over 50% of the work force. Looks like we need to diversify the Capitol police.
Posted by: Some rat in the swamp at February 20, 2021 11:09 PM (r1z5A)

I think Honore gets his percentage simply by breaking it down by race and just assuming where each land on their political support. Stuck on stupid.

Absolutely. I wish I could find it again on the CDC website. It is GONE. It was something like 6%. Also gone is the fact that the covid test can return a positive result if you've had a cold. You know, another corona virus.

Similarly dating myself, growing up in Puyallup, WA you could only get authentic KFC at a sit-down restaurant IIRC called "The Plantation", on Main Street. Across the street and down a half-block from the AandW. It was a commercial one-story building, but painted white and looked a bit like a southern home. The drive-thru box stores were later.

It depends on the test. The fast test is the least accurate, it can give false positives like that at too high a rate (like 25% or something of the sort) The long test is more accurate but still can have errors, especially when they do too many doublings.

Through tarmac, to the sun again, or to fly to the sun,
Without burning a wing, to lie in a meadow,
And hear the grass sing. To have all these things,
In our memories hoard, and to use them,
To help us, to find the lost chord...

398 The other thing to recall about Covid stats is that plenty are not based on actual lab tests at all. The stats encompass lab diagnosed and probable cases. The criteria for deciding one had Covid are pretty loose. Probable cases are identified in part on the basis of clinical symptoms that would be present in a wide variety of illnesses. I'm reading this right off of the CDC website. Like most of the data on anything related to Covid, it's more complicated and uncertain than is widely acknowledged.

I've been sporadically truant from this fine blog over the last month or three ... I did notice you were in some hospitalized state I think ... and were on the recovery path, as I recall. Is that going well? ... best wishes and all that ... just trying to catch up. AoS needs your continued contributions ... but besides that, well wishes for your recovery and good life conditions.

Moorage in the Puget Sound area is changing because the mix of boats is changing.
During the '60's - 70's, a lot of families boated around Puget Sound, in boats from the low 20' size to boats up to maybe 36'. For a middle to upper middle class family, it was affordable.
In the last 15 years, certainly the last 10, many of the older moorage docks, designed for older length boats mentioned above, are being torn out, and larger berths are being added.
Boating (non-towable boats) has become crazy expensive, and the six-figure salaries not beginning with a 1 are needed. In Tacoma's Hylebos waterway for instance, a new marina is replacing an old one. The slips are 50' up to 60', the work is not near being done, and I was told last week they are all spoken for already.

461 Some years ago, a couple of guy friends and I had the brilliant idea to build a pontoon boat.
Every day after work we'd meet at the bar and work out the details on bar napkins. Many months and cocktails later, it was built.
Got a keg and a group of friends together, took it out on a lake, and it immediately sank.
Of course, the priority was saving the keg.

I have tried the most common beers in Japan, South Korea, Russia, China, Spain, Canada, Central America, etc. They are almost all adjunct lagers and most of them are wore than Bud or Coors by a quantifiable level.

In 2008 I woke up in a hotel room with ringing in my ears so loud I thought the fire alarm was going off and I got dressed. The left ear mostly subsided, but the right ear still rings. I asked my ENT about it and whether it was due to firing weapons. He pointed out that the muzzle is closer to my left ear than the right, so that's probably not the cause. Pulling on my earlobe decreases it, so it's probably a nerve being pinched. I just ignore it too.

That doesn't surprise me in the least. Bud had always been popular with Hispanics on both sides of the border. They created Bud Light lime to compete with Corona. I hear it is flat out awful, but a lot of people like it.

The other funny thing is many people love anything "imported" or at least they used to. I know in the overpriced tourist discos in London, the punters were drinking American Bud.

Italy has some really nice micro beers. They are not easy to get so you don't see them much. Peroni is ok but truthfully it is no better than a generic American macro such as Bud or Coors. The problem is getting them fresh, that will always be an issue.

One beer I like that is cheap is Red Stripe. It is not world changing but it has a good flavor that goes with many foods. Another more obscure recco is Beer Lao from Laos. If you can get it reasonably fresh, it is well worth trying.

490 The biggest ripoff in the "imported" beer market, is the number of brands that once used to be a genuine product of their Country of Origin, but are now a pale shadow of their actual self. Because they've now brewed under license by Molson's of Canada, Lone Star or Pearl Brewery in San Antonio, or various Budweiser breweries making and selling former independent microbrews.

It is a very long list, indeed.

491 I remember back in the '80's the rage was drinking Heineken in the green bottle.
This was before micros took over, in fact, Red Hook was about all I could get about that time.
Heineken was imported from Europe and by the time it hit the grocer's cooler, was skunky and tasted bad. But oh, in the bars it made you part of the "in crowd".
I was never part of that in crowd, I drank Rainier mostly.

Years ago, when Molsons merged with Coors, I maintained that Coors Light, as sold in Canada, was indistinguishable from Molson's Canadian. The half-dozen other punters at the bar pooh-poohed that. So I got the waitress to go into the cooler and pour a bunch of half-glasses of both brands for us to do a blind taste test.

Most of us guessed wrong.

yeah, you have to check the bottle. Red Stripe is still made in Jamaica as far as I know. The Japanese beers are the ones you really have to check. I believe Orion is still brewed in Okinawa, but a lot of the other ones are contract brewed in the states.

The first Japanese beer I had was a drinking with a Japanese friend. The beer was Kirin Lager. You don't see that around anymore for some reason. Kirin Ichiban yes, bu Kirin lager no. And as for Canadian stuff. We used to get soused on Molson Golden. That is another beer that seems to have simply vanished. Not saying it was good, but it did do the job.

496 Left Coast Dawg. Yeah, Heineken was always hit n' miss, quality wise. Grolsh, with the cam-wire ceramic/rubber stopper, was much more consistent, and was my favorite with a pizza through the late '80s & early '90s. Then, something (I know not what) changed, and it wasn't the same, nor as good.

Recently, my local Kroger's has been putting Hamm's on the shelf. 16oz cans. Carefully reading labels, it seems it's the Real Thing. Tastes like BEER. Not a great or wonderful beer, but it brings back the sense of what my Dad shared with me when I was but a wee tyke. At $10 for two six packs, how could I not keep some in stock, myself?

I'm drinking Hawaii's most popular beer from Kona Brewing right now, Big Wave Golden Ale. Another of their flavors is Longboard. There are a couple of other flavors as well from them available at various times of the year.
Both are readily available in grocery stores around here.
Because it is actually brewed in Portland, OR. You would never know that by looking at the 6-pak packaging. It has classic Hawaiian images on it, and on the bottom is a pic of all the Hawaiian islands.

First time I had Kirin beer was on board a Japanese freighter tied up at the dock in Tahsis, B.C. to take on a load of lumber. Was with cow-orkers on a mineral exploration, and we were having a beer at the Tahsis hotel. Got to talking with the chief engineer on the ship, and we got to visit on board, and had a tour of the engine room. They had two spare pistons for the engine strapped to a railing, and each would have made a bar room table for the hotel.

Coors you know about but there was Lucky lager and a few others that I can't remember now because my downfall was Colt .45 Malt Liquor.

And did I mention that you could drink in Calif at 18 whereas where I came from it was 21 so I wasn't an experienced drinker. But I was willing to learn.

most of the macros are virtually indistinguishable. Very few could pick out a Coors, Bud or Miller in a blind test. i think i could but that is after a lot of practice. Miller has a particular sour funk that once you really notice it you can't forget. For some reason, many aficionados prefer miller high life. I know I don't.

To be clear, this was a blind taste test between regular Molson Canadian and Coors Lite.

Molson also makes a liight beer, but we didn't try that one, because none of us regularly drank it.

507 Quint. For me, Miller High Life has a great initial flavor, but is then burning, harsh and sour on the back of the tongue and throat.

The best cheap beer of olde, I think, was Schlitz, pre-recipe changes and cheapening. Try as they might, they've never got it right, since. The good stuff went away 'round '79 or so IIRC.

Hamm's - From the land of Sky Blue Waters.
Being the oldest, I'd hang with Dad doing chores on the weekends, mostly grabbing a wrench for him when he was under the hood, stuff like that, and he would drink some Hamm's along with his Rainier. After I turned about 12, he switched to Heidelberg, in the "keg bottle".


Good buddy collects neon and lighted beer signs. A Hamm's sign, lit with a moving background (back light over a rotating part that makes it look like it is moving) is one of his rarest ones. He has had it now for 20 years. It was a few years ago he last looked it up, and it was valued at $750.

I promise you, I believe you. The key with macros is they have removed anything that might cause offense to anyone that they have become generic. That is one reason I wonder when people say they taste like shit. The really well made ones don't take like much at all to be honest. But I do say someone should be able to tell a Bud from a Bud Light. One is simply more watery, and that should not be a surprise.

At one point in my youth I had a fluorescent-lit Hamm's landscape from a bar that my Dad brought home for me one day when we were living together (advance party, you might call it). Then my Mom moved in with the rest of the family and threw it out. And of course, when the Hamm's bear says it's closing time . . . .

Where they seemed weak, is that they never mastered the lockwork geometries that made the two premium brands, the PREMIUM brands. The H&R will always feel "less refined" in operation, even though it's the equal in steels, machining and fitment.

But H&R sure did make some very, very neat and interesting guns. Enjoy yours to the fullest!

You'd ruin some good Scotch, and the mower wouldn't run. You might get a mower to run on 190-proof Everclear, but the choke would have to be almost fully closed. I once had a '61 VW Bug, and ran it out of gas late at night in Vancouver. There was a 24-hour gas station (then a rarity) about ten blocks away. I had a pint bottle of alcohol windshield washer anti feeze on hand, the concentrate, no water. I dumped that in the tank, and with a warm engine, and the choke fully pulled, it started. Ran poorly, but got me to the gas station.

They say Nixon's favorite drink was Johnny Walker Blue. They also say he used to mix it with ginger ale. That is fine, to each his own. I am surely not going to call out Nixon over his choice of libations.

I am not saying this story is false, but there is a something about it that bothers me. Ok, it doesn't bother me but still it is odd in my opinion. Johnie Walker Blue came out in 1992. President Nixon died in 1994. Maybe he did like Johnnie Walker Blue with ginger ale. But if he did, it was for a very short time. I wonder what proof they have that that was his favorite whisky.

look at the JFK film. He was drunk drinking some whisky all the time. At this point I don't believe any of it. Again, nothing wrong with liking Johnnie Walker Blue if you can afford it, but there is something about this story that doesn't fit with me. The guy died at 81 and chose his favorite whisky at 79? Not sure why people push this, my guess is they want to defame him somehow. it is not a big thing considering all we are facing, but if you search Richard Nixon and Johnnie Walker Blue, you will get a a lot of hits.

Clinton admitted he would speak to Nixon from time to time. I still recommend the Nixon funeral to anyone who has not seen it or was too young to watch it. The man was a giant. Sure we have had other giants, but they are becoming much fewer on the ground. There might be a day when none are left.

JW has changed their Gold so many times that the moniker has lost all meaning. The key is to see if it is the 18 year bottle. That bottle has been called gold, then platinum, then simply aged 18 years. It is a very fine whisky, almost a desert whisky. I would not go for it every day, it is a dram for after a nice meal if you want something sweet and flowery.

571 the Blue has its place as long as you can get it for under 2 bones. My biggest complaint is that it is 40 abv. That is pretty much a joke for a super high cost Scotch these days. I doubt JW will change it up, but yeah, you can get much better Scotch for the same price or better.

Now that's an interesting take on Nixon. He was a complicated man. In college, 73-77, I took a course called something like "The Psychology of Richard Nixon". That was the 70s, LOL.

some things always go up in price. I recommended this once before but imo you can't go wrong buying all the "forever stamps" from the post office. From all i have seen, postage stamps only go up on price over time. i don't know the legalities re selling them, but then again, it is your private property. Looking back, a man could have done well by hording "forever" stamps.

a lot of politicians on both sides would ask Nixon for advice on foreign affairs. Clinton was willing to admit this at the funeral. Sure he tried to shame him too, but he could not ignore that Nixon was one of the most important figures of the 20th century. Repubs asked Nixon for advice too, that is well documented. It probably ended with W because he was pretty much a dullard.

The Quinta Ruban is out of stock in my area and has been for weeks. Very weird. i don't know if a rapper recommended it or what. Something happened that that specific Scotch is now unattainable.

582 my guess is something else is going on. No way Biden lifts those tariffs while the EU is still adding tariffs to American Bourbon. It pisses me off that so many Americans bitch about the tariffs on Scotch when the EU did the same to Bourbon a year sooner. Also, the WTO gave the USA the right to respond, a court told them they should do so. But still people bitch without knowing a thing about the situation.

you got me there. To be honest i wanted to take a long deserved shot at Bush. I defended him for years and enough was enough. But the guy took Tricia Nixon out on a date. It is not like he did not know Richard Nixon. But he was always a dullard, and worse, he was a statist.

Tricky Dick was one smart SOB. He loathed the elite Ivy League, was an ardent anti-commie, and that's why they destroyed him. Of course, he contributed to his own destruction, but presidents have done far worse than him. LBJ for instance, whom I suspect had people killed.

All the Kennedy assassination stuff, I don't know, but it wouldn't surprise me if LBJ had something to do with it. Or knew what was going on.

I used to discount most of that, but from what I've learned about the Deep State and the globalist oligarch cabal, I don't any more.

almost all of them did worse. Nixon was one of the first in the modern age where the MSM could prove they could change the narrative and destroy anyone on the right they hated. The only reason they leave W alone is because he means nothing on the national stage and has made it clear that he has no desire to mean anything.

Scotch prices are up. Really good Scotch has always been expensive, but their is no doubt the prices are up. While you can get a good Bourbon for $30 a fifth, a good Scotch will cost you $60 a fifth to be realistic. There area few reasons for that. Scotch is made in a socialist country, so there is that. Scotch ages slower, and that adds to the tax bill and cost, so there is that. There is also a 25 percent tariff on single malt Scotch placed by the Trump administration. But what so many seem to ignore, is the fact the the E.U. placed a 25 percent tariff on American Bourbon a year prior.

593 while Scotch prices are high, the real inflation has been in the small release Bourbon business. While good Scotch will never be cheap. the stuff that has gone crazy is small release Bourbon. These guys geek out. They wait outside the stores when the shipments come in and then many of them horde it and sell it to others. This is illegal in most states but they don't care. These people are also the most unfriendly you will ever meet. They don't give a crap about anyone else, they are after a score, and that is all that matters.

i hope the Bourbon guys raise the prices so high they all go into hock.

Christ Marijuana even on NIxon? Look, i dropped it long ago. I don't mess with other peoples Dieties. But to blame Nixon for Marijuana? The country was at least 80 percent opposed at the time. Take the win and be happy with it. A lot of conservatives are not happy because it is just one more example of how the nation has been warped beyond recognition over the last 30 years.

A local radio host mentioned today that the mob used to run prostitution, gambling, and drugs. They were attacked for that for as long as most Americans recall. Now the Dems and statists are all in on running them all as state sanctioned entities. And we all know that America is way better now than it was 30 or 40 years ago.

The famous example is Lincoln's letter to Meade after the battle of Gettysburg. He ripped Meade to shreds and made it clear that the battle was a lost opportunity, not a great victory. His aides told him not to send the letter and he did not. Then again, the people that needed to know learned what was in it. Either way, it was a good lesson in thinking twice before you send something. You might have the most scathing retort, but there are times when you should simmer down and tuck that retort away.
