Lord Of The Flies? Here Piggy, Piggy, Piggy...

In February, I posted my opinion of speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi's idiotic and continual standing ovations during Obama's congressional address. Every time Obama said a word or grunted, Pelosi was on her feet. Her moronic actions, combined with her constant glances at herself on the television monitors even embarrassed me and I'm an independent.

Yesterday, my old pal Victor sent me a video which succinctly shows exactly what I was referring to, combined with a little political humor. So, for your dining and dancing pleasure, I give you the newest Nancy Pelosi video, aptly entitled "Dancing with the Socialists."

You may want to turn off the sound to my music playlist located on the sidebar.

The video just seems to personify the old adage "a picture is worth a thousand words." Kinda brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it? You can read my February post by clicking this link What's A Trillion Dollars Between Friends?

It continues to amaze me why ships sailing in the waters off of the Somali coast do not fight fire with fire when being accosted by Somali terrorists. I watched a news video yesterday of Somali terrorists in small boats launching four RPG's (rocket powered grenades) at their intended victims. It seems to me that if a terrorist shoots a RPG at a ship with the obvious intent of killing someone, the ship should then return the favor. How hard is it to grasp and understand this concept and start blowing these assholes out of the water?

On a sad note Dom Deluise passed away yesterday at the age of 75 after a long battle with cancer. The memorable actor and comedian appeared in scores of movies and TV shows, in Broadway plays and voicing characters for numerous cartoon shows. His more memorable films include "The Twelve Chairs," "Blazing Saddles," "Silent Movie," "History of the World Part I" and "Robin Hood: Men in Tights." DeLuise was also the voice of Pizza the Hutt in Brooks' "Star Wars" parody, "Spaceballs."

The actor also appeared frequently in films opposite his friend Burt Reynolds. Among them, "The End," "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas," 'Smokey and the Bandit II," "The Cannonball Run" and "Cannonball Run II."

This Date In History: 1626; Dutch settler Peter Minuit allegedly purchases what is now New York's Manhattan Island from Native Americans for goods worth $24. 1937; The German dirigible Hindenburg, the largest airship ever built, bursts into flames upon landing in New Jersey. 1954; British athlete Roger Bannister is the first person to run a mile in under four minutes. 1994; The Channel Tunnel linking England to France officially opens.

Picture Of The Day: I hope that you will indulge me, but I'm having so much fun with this Swine Flu mask deal, I just couldn't resist a few more pictures. The featured picture (top) was released by scientists who announced they had found the origin or "ground zero" of the first transfer of Swine Flu from pigs to man. After further investigation, they discovered that the pig did not have the Swine Flu virus. After kissing the toddler, however, the pig did come down with a severe case of snot nose.

Birthdays: Maximilien Robespierre, lawyer and political leader 1758, Sigmund Freud, physician and neurologist 1856, Robert Perry, explorer 1856, Rudolph Valentino, Italian-born American film actor, who was idolized as a romantic, exotic lover 1895, Orson Welles, film actor, producer, director, and writer 1915, Tony Blair, former British prime minister 1953.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) I can't stand residential developers who tear out the trees in a new neighborhood and then name streets after them. 2) I've learned that most women's favorite position is CEO. 3) I was madly in love with my second grade teacher until I learned that she was getting married. 4) My train of thought sometimes gets interrupted and I find that very disconcerting. After further investigation, I realized that my train of thought ofttimes has no caboose. 5) I often wonder why hemorrhoids called "hemorrhoids" instead of "assteroids."

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: My thanks to my pal, Regina, for the following story.

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude."

She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican." The man. "Yes, I am. How did you know?" The balloonist said, "Well, everything you told me is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

The man smiled and responded, "You must be an Obama Democrat." The balloonist. "Yes, I am. How did you know?" The man said, "Well, you don't know where you are or where you are going. You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it's my fault."

Walking into the bar, Henry said to the bartender, "Pour me a stiff one, Eddie. I just had another fight with the little woman." Eddie said, "Yeah? And how did this one end?" Henri said, "When it was over, she came to me on her hands and knees." Eddie said, "Really? Wow, Now that's a switch! What did she say?" Eddie replied, "She said 'Come out from under that bed you little chicken shit!"

Police found a local man murdered in his home in California over the weekend. Detectives at the scene found the man face down in his bathtub. The tub had been filled with milk and corn flakes, and the deceased had a banana protruding from his butt. Police suspect a cereal killer.

That's it for today my little frosted flakes. It's Hump Day and I'm going to AREA 51 for happy hour. More on Friday.

Stay Tuned !

Rest In Peace Dom

I agree with your thoughts about the Somoli terrorists pirateing ships. I read recently that some of those terrorists tried to attack a military ship, but backed off rather quickly, when the military ship showed their big guns. Of course, if we shot back, we would be punished for breaking the 'rules'!!!!

Yes RIP Dom. He was a great actor. We actually just watched 'Blazing Saddles' for about the 100th time a couple weeks ago. No matter what role he played, he did good. Another great entry...have a marvy time tonight. Linda in rainy & do I mean RAINY Washington. It's literally raining cats & dogs sideways. It's only a little after 2 in the afternoon & I'm going to build a fire in the wood stove because it feels cold & damp in this house.

Missie said...

I love all the pictures of the masks! LOL

Enjoy your evening.

I believe that "Sea Law" dictates that no Merchant ship may carry fire arms on the high seas, but I think that's what the pirates depend on. I think the Laws of Merchant vessels should be changed because of the pirates, or armed 'Security Forces' be hired/ contracted for those ships in danger. Just my opinion.

The video of Sweating with Nancy was great, what a hoot. She brown noses so much she needs to wipe her nose with toilet paper. I just signed a petition to have her fired. Loved the jokes and the mask pics.

A little "birdie" (in WA) mentioned it was your birthday. So, I had to come by and wish you a wonderful day. Here's wishing you have a Happy Birthday!

Pamela said...

Loved the video. She's an idiot! Love the pics and jokes. The hot air balloon joke had me laughing!
Have a good day!

Tabby said...

I really enjoyed that video that was funny! Dom will be missed sorely. I totally agree with your idea also of blowing those somali pirates out of the eye for an eye right? Loved all the jokes as usual.
