A Time For Lunch

Get patriotic with this great open faced sandwich. Stars and strips are great for lunch when you make them out of strawberry and grape jelly.

1 slice SARA LEE(R) Soft & Smooth(TM) Whole Grain White Bread
Grape jelly
Squeezable strawberry jelly

Place the slice of bread onto a serving plate. In one corner of the slice, spread a small square of grape jelly. Pick a few small crumbs from the bread, and place over the grape jelly to make stars. Squeeze strips of strawberry jelly across the slice of bread horizontally to make the stripes of the flag.

How A Bill Becomes A Law

I entered the search "Congress" at Yahoo News Photos and this ad came up:

But Enough About Jeff! Let's Talk About Me!

hamburger.with.flag.large The Post-Standard makes with the decent Jeff obit.

In other news: from now on, I will read your comments before they post. You won't see them instantly; you'll have to wait until I bound out of bed, exercise, shower, dress, breakfast, practice the violin, turn on my computer, check my stocks, read Thomas L. Friedman, and then choose which of your reminiscences, verses and recipes I will share with the world and which I shall destroy. I was forced into this post-9/11 precaution by a poster who actually thought it was a good idea to disagree with me, and that I would be big enough to take it. Not smart. I hope the rest of you will continue to share your comments, and that you will do so in the spirit of the approximate words of Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes:

Free speech does not give anyone the right to yell at Peyer in a crowded theater.
Update: Never mind.

"Kiss Me Like You Kiss Lynne."

Is this woman secretly dating Trigger?


Bad News From Back Home

John (Jeff) F. Davies, 67, of Syracuse, passed away Sunday at home. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army and was a local artist for several Syracuse businesses.
I don't blame the paper or the reporter, but Jeff's piddling obituary is as funny and gross as his paintings. Don't call him "a local artist for several Syracuse businesses;" Jeff was an artist. Yes, he would slap the odd dinosaur onto the odd tavern wall, but his life and work were 40,000 times better and crazier than any business commission. If anyone reading this can send me a scan of one of his works, I'd love to show it here. But I know it's a longshot. Largely undocumented by Google, Jeff seemed to believe in using his computer only to meet women.

Goodbye, Jeff.

Update On Harry Whittington's Condition


Love Gun

This Valentine's Day, my thoughts keep coming back to the Cheneys, and to KISS:

I really love you baby
I love what you've got
Let's get together, we can
Get hot
No more tomorrow, baby
Time is today
Girl, I can make you feel

No place for hidin' baby
No place to run
You pull the trigger of my
Love gun, (love gun), love gun
Love gun, (love gun), love gun
You can't forget me baby
Don't try to lie
You'll never leave me, mama
So don't try
I'll be a gambler, baby
Lay down the bet
We get together, mama
You'll sweat
No place for hidin' baby
No place to run
You pull the trigger of my
Love gun, (love gun), love gun
Love gun, (love gun), love gun
Love gun, love gun

The Cheney Shooting Explained With Comic Book Covers @ Mountain of Judgement!

AMERICAblog on Cheney's Chappaquiddick:

The White House now claims Bush was informed on Saturday night (the accident happened on Saturday) that someone in Cheney's hunting party had been shot, but Bush was not told that the victim was shot by Cheney. How do you leave that detail out, and why would you leave it out? Especially when we now find out that the victim was in critical condition - that means within a few hours it was possible the victim could have died, and THAT would be news if Cheney had killed someone. And you don't give the president a heads up? This is fishy as hell.

The Winner:

'Did He Get The Quail?'

Free Republic, the right wing message board, is bursting with posts on the Cheney shooting:

Great.. now every gun control nut is gonna come out of the woodworks and announce how dangerous guns are..

This happened yesterday afternoon? wow great sources the media has lol

Cheney must feel Horrible... the libs are going to try to use this accident to no end...

This is crazy, I can't wait to hear what my idiot officemates have to say about this.

Did the VP accidentally shoot somebody

Vincent Foster? Oops, that was the co-President doing the shooting, not the VP, and it was intentional and not accidental. Never mind...

When the Clintons shoot *their* lawyer, he *stays* dead.

It's still safer than going driving with Teddy Kennedy.

LDU* wants him charged with attempted murder!

Sure, right after Teddy Kennedy's prosecuted for his successful murder.

I'd still rather hunt with Cheney, than drive with Kennedy.

It's still safer than going driving with Teddy Kennedy.


It's still safer than going driving with Teddy Kennedy.

ROFLMAO. At least this man is still alive!

I'd still rather hunt with Cheney, than drive with Kennedy.


Well, what's the hubbub all about?

Actually, Cheney invited Ted Kennedy, but he couldn't make it...

That too funny hey one thing for sure Ted Kennedy has one up on VICE president

One kill LOL!

Ted Kennedy's car has killed more people than Dick Cheney's gun!!!

Poll: 90% would rather hunt with Dick Cheney than ride with Ted Kennedy.

The difference between VP Cheney and Teddy. At least Teddy has one confirmed kill.

OMG, you are funny!

Has anyone heard from Howard Dean today??? : )

I was thinking maybe he took Howard Dean hunting.

Cheney told Dean to 'walk on ahead and flush out some birds'.

I think Cheney should go on tv ASAP and invite Howard Dean to go hunting with him. lol

I hope that at the inevitable press conference, Cheney says: "We invited Howard Dean, but he said he would be busy at an ACLU rally against the Boy Scouts".

rofling! I know. I'm sorry I cant keep a straight face about this. I hope it was a Democrat. A bipartisan hunting trip. What a great idea.

Ok, sue me. Even the Fox anchors are having a hard time keeping a straight face.just watch.

I checked on Newsmeat, all of Whittington's donations have been to Republicans. People are crazy to think it is anything other than an accident. If Whittington was hunting with Cheney, he had a loaded shotgun too, there is no way that anyone would be allowed around Cheney with a firearm if they were not 100% trusted.

"...after Cheney sprayed Whittington with shotgun pellets..."

Well, if you're quail hunting, you're not using slugs. And as far as 'spraying,' a shotgun produces a shot PATTERN.

These reporters are morons.

I love how the DUmmies* couldn't care less that Teddy Kennedy killed a human being, probably on purpose, but hunting animals and not eating them is the worst crime in the world. Its not like Kerry was going to eat whatever he shot at his photo-op either.

I just want to know if Cheney was able to get another shot at the bird he was originally shooting at?

Did he get the quail ?

If it had been Clinton, Gore, or Kerry on some phoney hunting trip they would have dug up some other poor sucker to take the fall for this.

Fox says big adieu about nothing

What? They're not tying this to HALIBURTON? Didn't Haliburton manufacture the pellets or something? ROFLMAO!

Rush is going to have a blast with this come Monday. :)


to be introduced this week (joke):

Kerry's/Hillary's Gun Contol Bill: Bill indicates that Hunters over 65 years of age will have to surrender their firearms, before they receive their check (SSoc) or Prescription discounts.

I would't put it past them.

Adlai Stevenson shot his sister's friend to death when he was 12.

I would go hunting any day with Cheney and wouldn't be worried one bit.

Accidents happen!

For Immediate Release



(Feb 13, PR Newswire) –– Dick Tracy will capitalize on Muhammad's sudden and unexpected cartoon success by adding the prophet to the cast of his daily syndicated strip, says its artist, Dick Locher.

"Muhammad is the biggest name in cartoons right now," said Locher from his home studio in suburban Chicago. "Fortunately he's not copyrighted or trademarked, so I can use him without worrying. In my version, he'll help Tracy out on the occasional case, but there will be times when the police won't be sure if he's truly on their side or just playing them. I think it'll be fun!"

America's Enemies


Tonight I ask you to pass legislation to prohibit the most egregious abuses of medical research... CREATING HUMAN-ANIMAL HYBRIDS!!!

President George W. Bush
State Of The Union, 2006

spideyockWith so much pro-hybee drivel circulating, it's sadly important to reinforce the obvious: hybrids are a menace. Examples:

DR. OCTOPUS - Not genetically a human/animal hybrid, but close enough. His super-strong arms of telescoping metal exemplify the horrific potential of science unleavened by a humbling belief in God. He has no place in my America; what about yours?

wolf_manTHE WOLF MAN -- An ancient verse cautions, "Even a man who is pure at heart and says his prayers by night/Can become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the moon is full and bright." His bite is more than a weapon of destruction. It is a recruitment tool that can transform good people of every noble faith into murderers who serve evil.

beauty_beastTHE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU -- We need to secure our borders while supporting their right to win their own freedom. I hope one day our nation will be the closest of friends with a free and democratic Island of Dr Moreau.

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST -- Americans do not believe in a definition of marriage that recognizes the union of a woman and a monster.

zaiusGiamattiDR. ZAIUS -- Orangutans and their militant gorilla allies seek to impose a heartless system of totalitarian control throughout the world. But our enemies and our friends can be certain: the United States will never surrender to apes.

PAUL GIAMATTI -- What is he supposed to be, anyway? I get the human part, but I don't recognize the other half.
