Birthday Badness Banderas

Well, here's a thought.

Be afraid.
Be very afraid.

I saw where the rest of this "tube" goes.

And it's much worse than you think.
It was worse that I could think.
And that's saying something!

Mother of God!
Don't Ask!


How these words et al find their way in front of my eyeballs is really beyond me.

And I'd like to know who's sending some of this stuff.

Yes, you read it here first:

There are some photographs I'll never post.

A socially unacceptable joke!

I rear-ended a car a few days ago.

The other driver got out of his car.
He was pissed ...
and he was a DWARF!!

He looked up at me and said, "I am NOT happy!"

I said, "OK, then which one are you?"

Thanks to NightMare...AGAIN!

Andrew Sullivan
Ann Coulter & "faggot"

How enlightening is a little reading. Perfectly ready to bash Andrew Sullivan as traitorous faggot of the Repulican Party, I stumbled onto his eloquent defense of Ann Coulter and her use of the pejorative "faggot" in reference to John Edwards some time back.

Ann Coulter: pro-gay? Who knew! An obfuscated fact, to be sure.

Read Andrew Sullivan's piece for The Atlantic and form your own opinion.
For a change.

I've changed mine.

This time.

Keys, left.

Keys are an understood signifier for homosexual activity. A key chain worn on the right side of the body indicates that the wearer desires to play a passive role during a sexual encounter. Conversely, keys placed on the left side of the body signify that the wearer expects to assume a dominant position.

The color orange worn on the left side of the body signifies that the wearer is into anything, anytime. Conversely, orange worn on the right side of the body signifies that the wearer is just cruising, and is not into anything at that time.

Hail Mary, full of grace.

Greyhounds are typically a healthy and long-lived breed, and hereditary illness is rare. Some Greyhounds have been known to develop esophageal achalasia, Bloat (gastric torsion), and osteosarcoma.[9] Because the Greyhound's lean physique makes it ill-suited to sleeping on hard surfaces, owners of companion Greyhounds generally provide soft bedding; without bedding, Greyhounds are prone to develop painful skin sores. Greyhounds typically live 10–13 years.[10]

Due to the unique physiology and anatomy of greyhounds, a veterinarian who understands the issues relevant to the breed is generally needed when the dogs need treatment, particularly when anaesthesia is required. Greyhounds cannot metabolize barbiturate-based anesthesia as other breeds can because they have lower amounts of oxidative enzymes in their livers.

Greyhounds demonstrate unusual blood chemistry, which can be misread by veterinarians not familiar with the breed; this can result in an incorrect diagnosis. Greyhounds have higher levels of red blood cells than do other breeds. Since red blood cells carry oxygen to the muscles, this higher level allows the hound to move larger quantities of oxygen faster from the lungs to the muscles. Veterinary blood services often use greyhounds as universal blood donors.[11]

One o' these days...

I'm going to start pic-jacking all the really shocking photographs I see people post on various sites, all purporting to advertise the fact they are looking for the one and true love of their life...

and I mean it!

Pig Play!

A farmer had five female pigs. Times were hard, so he
decided to take them to the county fair and sell them.
At the fair, he met another farmer who owned five male pigs.

After talking a bit, they decided to mate the pigs and split
everything 50/50. The farmers lived sixty miles apart. So they
agreed to drive thirty miles each, and find a field in which to
let the pigs mate.

The first morning, the farmer with the female pigs got up at 5
a. m., loaded the pigs into the family station wagon, which was
the only vehicle he had, and drove the thirty miles.

While the pigs were mating, he asked the other farmer, "How will
I know if they are pregnant?"

The other farmer replied, "If they're in the grass in the morning,
they're pregnant, if they're in the mud, they're not."

The next morning the pigs were rolling in the mud. So he hosed
them off, loaded them into the family station wagon again and
proceeded to try again.

This continued each morning for more than a week.

The next morning he was too tired to get out of bed.
He called to his wife, "Honey, please look outside and tell me
Whether the pigs are in the mud or in the grass."

"Neither," yelled his wife, "they're in the station wagon and one
of them is honking the horn."

Scotland v Paris!
Put 'em up, b*tch!

Paris Hilton, stuck-up hotel heiress and professional oxygen thief, was cut down to size by Texas singer Sharleen Spiteri in an amazing four-letter bust-up after Michael Jackson's disastrous comeback show. Paris, 25, sparked the row by wrongly accusing Sharleen of showering her with ice - and called her a "f***ing ugly idiot". But the no-nonsense Scot, 39, brandished a fist in Paris's face and bellowed back at her to send her packing. Minders pulled them apart but one witness said: "Sharleen looked ready to punch her." Another guest revealed yesterday: "Sharleen pulled her fingers into a fist and screamed: 'F*** off, I'm not scared of you'.

A "lucky" influence
Valid during several months: This is a pleasant time that is good for all relationships, but you may not feel especially active. Today you tend to attract circumstances, persons or objects, including money, that can be useful later on. This is a spontaneously "lucky" influence. The quotation marks around "lucky" mean that it is not so much luck that helps you as your attitude of relaxation and willingness to let your life flow without the tension of resistance. Many things are prevented from entering people's lives because they are too tense to let them in. At other times you might unconsciously alienate a potentially helpful person, or you might be too cautious or overlook an opportunity because of tension. This influence helps to prevent such negative states of consciousness.

Something's very wrong when...

Connecticut's "hottest" night spot offers up table reservations,
and bottle service.

Too much glam, not nearly enough slam.

Give me a dark, dank, rundown warehouse in a dubious part of town, with a polished concrete dancefloor, and a clientel more suited for a costume party than a debutante ball (albeit in "drag" befitting ethnically stereotypical crowds).

I'm loathe to give them any coverage, except they are seriously worth a good laugh.

They take themselves WAY too seriously.


Happy Brady Birthday!
