Møøse Bites Kan Be Pretty Nasti

Now that Talibunny-endorsed Joe Miller is the official Republican Senate nominee from the Great State of Reality-Television Casting, we thought we’d rectify an earlier omission and present for your viewing pleasure one of the more fascinating extended Northern Exposure references from the 2010 campaign season.


For some reason I don’t see this ending well.

In pointless sport coincidence or justice…

The once favored St Louis Cardinals led by Teabagger and general asshole Tony LaRussa now 7 games back of the upstart Cincinnati Reds (COMMIES!!!) for the National League Central Lead after losing all their games since TeaBag Bekc Sat where Tony teabagged Dommnican Immigrant Albert Pujols (but an acceptable brown because he’s rich, plays sport and is led by a white US AMurka guy) with a Teabagger award of some sort.

@ManchuCandidate: coincidence, but a happy one. The Cardinals had been sagging before the Beck but that certainly adds a snicker to the whole proceedings.

And we don’t buy Tony La Russa’s excuse that he was told it wasn’t political. La Russa is one of the brainier fuckers behind a major league bench, and that defense reeks of the one he’s given before that he had no idea Mark McGwire or Jose Canseco were roiding it up while he was managing them in Oakland [and for McGwire, again in StL.] Basically, it couldn’t happen to a nicer fucknozzle.

In other news of Sport, the Dodgers looked awful in losing to the Phillies last night, the owners having spend millions fighting each other in divorce court and bupkis on the team. I don’t care if they want to fuck other people but Holy Jesus, we need some pitching.

tj/Pigskin Preview – RML Lobos at Nojo Ducks on Saturday. New Mexico athletic administrators busy pointing fingers to find out who scheduled their opener on the road against a Top 25 team. Next week: Lobos v. Mrs RML’s Texas Tech Red Raiders in Albuquerque on The Glorious Day of Our Fallen Heroes, after which we’ll be 0-2. I hope they at least have fireworks.

@karen marie: Talk about death panels. I can’t wait for him to get started on bitching about traumatic brain injury treatment and PTSD treatment for the veterans of our Middle East adventures. What a motherfucker.

@Capt Howdy: ?????

I had to stop a minute or so in, but I’d swear he was walking through a huge patch of cannabis plants. What kind of message are you trying to send, sir?

I can’t remember the last time I saw quite this much butch on display. When does he come out? And what’s with the antlers? Why does he keep picking them up and throwing them away? Major props to makeup for the totally convincing 9 o’clock shadow. I’ve gone all weak in the knees.

@karen marie: Gor blimey! I just about dropped me crisps. It starts with a reference to Clacton and just keeps getting better.

@Benedick: I picked up my elk antlers from my dad’s this past week. Will post pix in da club sometime.

@Benedick: The larch! The fir! The mighty Scot’s pine!


“When does he come out?”

Given that he looks exactly like the Monty Python “Lumberjack Song” guy, I’d say that’s already out of the bag… ;)

That reminds me; I need to pick up some paper towels at the store today.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: @Benedick: I’m really surprised the Daily Show didn’t go for the antlers.

Now that I think about it, the antlers may count as a reference to “Biggles Dictates A Letter”…

@al2o3cr: Biggles?? Oooohhhh. Do we have a closet Limey?

Has the Chuck Norris look to me. Sounds about as crazy too

@nojo: I know, native Oragonian(1949), just hate it when people mispronounce it as Oragone, so I spell it that way. Makes cents to me.

@Oragone: Well, you have my nativism beat by ten years.

Further clarification for outsiders, including anyone in Springfield:
You-GENE, not YOU-Gene.

Also: “Organic Wall Decoration”, not “mildew”.

@nojo: Wait until you get to Tacoma and Puyallup. ta-CO-ma. pyu-AL-up. Most common “you ain’t from here” pronunciations are TA-coma and a horrible muddled mess followed by a confused look, which can’t possibly be transcribed.


I usually say “taco-MA” and “Puke-it-all-up.”

@IanJ: I get to cheat my knowledge, what with a cluster of relatives up there. Puyallup, Snohomish, whatever — grew up with all of them.

Wait a sec: Puyallup, Snohomish, Tacoma, Willamette, even Vancouver by coincidence. Never quite realized that I’ve spent my life stressing the middle syllable.

Indeed. I believe I’m going to choose to blame the French, Native Americans, and the British, in roughly that order.

Veneta, Elmira, McMinnville (cheat!), Lake Oswego…

@nojo: How about Suquamish (as in Oliphant v. Suquamish Indian Tribe, 435 U.S. 191, 98 S.Ct. 1011(1978) cited in today’s memo)?

@nojo: @Oragone: @IanJ: @¡Andrew!: I don’t have a dog in this fight, but surely an exception can be made for mispronunciation in the service of sweet, sweet rhyme:

Well the sheriff let me go with a knife and a song
So I took the first train up to Oregon
And I killed the first man that I came upon
Cause the devil works quick, you know it don’t take long…
