Global Warming SUCKS!!!

Sunday 15 February 2015 at 9:20 pm



Detroit's stuck in a record deeeep-freeze. Boston's buried up to their eyebrows with record amounts of winter's white hell for the 3rd, 4th, or 5th time in the last month. Everybody east of the Rockies will be suffering with frigid temps, the likes of which haven't been seen since 1960.

But we're consoled in the knowledge that out in Cali, there's a load of f**kwits running in circles screaming "global warming"... Go bother the Chinese about the voluminous amount of pollution spewing from their coal-fired power plants, you assholes.

Leave us alone, while we open up a few cans of spray paint & Silly-String & see if we can actually make this place a little warmer.

Je Suis Charlie / Je Suis Ahmed

Today a pair of candy-assed, chicken-hearted scumbags, shouting Islamic chants opened fire inside of a newspaper office in Paris. Sadly, France lost 10 highly regarded members of their media & 2 Gendarmes that tried to stop the slaughter.

As Editors & Cartoonists, these brave souls died for their satire, for lampooning public figures, for ridiculing ideas, & for trying to enable topical discussions with the French populace. Charb, Cabu, Wolinski, & Tignous were merely armed with wit & pencils, when these dickless, sons of goat-fucking bastards & their getaway driver protested the magazine's satire with Kalishnikovs.


French President Francois Hollande vowed to find the perpetrators & called for national unity. "Freedom is always bigger than barbarism," he said. "Vive la France."

In trying to silence debate in the media about the rogue or radical elements of a religion, these zealots seem to have rallied the world against the radical elements of ALL religions!
At least, I hope so.
Update: This is especially important as the Police Officer that was brutally slain as he lay wounded on the sidewalk, has been identified as a devout Muslim himself.

I predict that global Islamophobia will continue to rise until clerics worldwide condemn the murder of innocents, per the Koran, & issue a fatwah condemning these 3 cowards to a special place in HELL!

Bye-Bye Elly May Clampett

Friday 02 January 2015 at 11:29 pm


The TV world lost a one of its most beloved characters today. Images of Elly May in a bikini by the "cee-ment pond" were forever emblazoned in the minds of many of a 60's teenage boy.

However, us teenage boys never got to know the real Donna Douglas, because TV never showed just how glamorous this lady really was! Donna Douglas was truly the embodiment of Ellie May. She was always described as sweet, personable, & quite religious through out her life. Despite being on her "death bed", she was still thinking of her life long friends, because she just HAD to send a message to her pal Jethro (Max Bauer), "tell Maxie that I thought I was going to get better."



Hubba, hubba, baby. RIP.

Happy New Year!!!

Count your blessings from this year, party heartily, dance all night, enjoy dinner & cocktails your closest friends, but DRIVE SOBER or get a D.D.!

Don't let sh*t get out of hand after midnight.... that's for amateurs.

Happy Thanksgiving 2014

Winter Is Coming... Dammit.

Wednesday 12 November 2014 at 12:29 am



Once again, the pleasant months of summer fun have come to an end. The afternoon chills of a changing season speak more of raking leaves & other household chores, than of cruising in our hot rods.
Soon, the brilliant autumn colors will give way to the stark grays of winter & the impending snowflakes that will follow...

I agree with Scotty, this SUCKS!

Save the Net Today

Wednesday 10 September 2014 at 1:08 pm



Today's the day to let the FCC know that their plan to let the bastards at Comcast & Verizon carve up the internet that WE PAID FOR, is pure bullshit.

Sign up to protest, contact the FCC by the 15th, & help us make the Government understand that the internet is for everybody.

Martha, Gone But Not Forgotten

Monday 01 September 2014 at 11:43 am


Species: Ectopistes migratorius

100 years ago today, Martha, the last US passenger pigeon died in the Cincinnati Zoo at approx 29 years old. She was affectionately named after First Lady Martha Washington.

Despite repeated warnings from conservationists, the birds were hunted relentlessly by the tens of millions annually. Hunters of the day killed them mostly for sport with some percentage going to market. The population went from billions to millions, then to zero in just a handful of decades. Martha's death marked the 1st time the general public was made aware of a specie's extinction at the hands of mankind.

Martha now resides in a little metal cabinet in the Smithsonian.

This is why we support the activities of our local & national sportsman clubs, like Ducks Unlimited. Their annual conservation of wetlands accrues thousands of acres each year to retain habitat for ducks & other migratory species.
