Good Morning Readers, please keep your seats this will be brief as it was a long aggravating weekend for me personally and I’m even less my “sunny dispositioned” self today.
I would ask that you read the Last Word today in its entirety. No its not political, no it doesn’t back any good causes. Its time to cover old ground again about who Impish and I are and why we make the comments in the Last Word we do.
On To The Laughter!
How to get a man to smile for a picture…
Works like a charm every time take it from me. I always smile when I see that!
I just got scammed out of $25. Bought Tiger Woods’ DVD entitled “My Favorite 18 Holes.”
Turns out it’s about golf! Absolute waste of money.
Pass this on so others don’t get scammed.
Whoever came up with this storyline is a bloody genius!
What must this guy have scored in his driving test! I would have loved to see the look on the DMV Examiner’s face when this crossed his desk!
Don’t know where Zack has been lately with his groaner submissions but MikeR. seems determined to become Mayor of DragonLaffs Groanersville that’s for sure!
You’ve been warned!
The French will eat almost anything. A young cook decided that the French would enjoy feasting on rabbits and decided to raise rabbits in Paris and sell them to the finer restaurants in the city.
He searched all over Paris seeking a suitable place to raise his rabbits. None could be found. Finally, an old priest at the cathedral said he could have a small area behind the rectory for his rabbits.
He successfully raised a number of them, and when he went about Paris selling them, a restaurant owner asked him where he got such fresh rabbits.
The young man replied, “I raise them myself, near the cathedral. In fact, I have a hutch back of Notre Dame.
Hoisted On His Own Petard:
A police officer on patrol in a heavy drug-sales area of Las Vegas, Nev., noticed a BMW stop at a home and take on a passenger. Then the officer saw the BMW drop off the passenger at an apartment building, park, and wait for the passenger to return, the resulting report says.
When the officer subsequently stopped the BMW for a traffic violation, the passenger fled; after being caught and arrested he revealed that the driver, known to him as “Joe,” had been giving him $40 several times a week to buy cocaine. The drug was indeed found in
the BMW, and Clark County District Attorney David Roger says “Joe” will be “prosecuted and held accountable just like anyone else” — “Joe” is Deputy D.A. David Schubert, a member of state and federal drug task forces who has run a number of high-profile prosecutions, including of Paris Hilton. (AC/Las Vegas Sun)

I’d like to address a couple of recent comments made in the comments section rather than as specific remarks but as two different types of remarks we are not going to ever allow to post. In total so far there are 3 general types of remarks going right in the dumpster. One is SPAM or comments made with the sole reason of getting their website advertised and not in any shape participating in a discussion or commenting upon what was said. IF they happen to contain compliments we happily strip the SPAM casing off and post them as positive comments to send a message when the poster wanders back in. Besides one should never waste a kind word, particularly when its said about you!
The second is of the sort below. The first comment was made on the blog the subsequent remarks are an e-mail exchange between myself and the commenter who Impish informs be constantly rants at him complaining about our political commentaries and points of view. Essentially it seems he refuses to understand that neither of us will ever again be limber enough to get our heads far enough up our asses to see the Democratic point of view or the Republican one for that matter. It’s also clear from his remarks that he has never bothered to read the sections at the top of the blog page labeled ‘About Lethal Leprechaun’ or ‘About Impish Dragon’ or either of the about link that appear at the bottom of our posts (which in my case at least is totally different than the one in the blog header). Please note that in an effort at some points you will see <[edited for ID protection]> in place of some info which could be used to possibly identify and possible cause embarrassment or issues for the original sender.
Guest: I guess this explains why your head is totally up your ass. (Leprechaun note: This was posted as a response to LL # 50, presumably in relation the the Ted Nugent postings in the Last Word though he never chose to mention the exact reason or provocation for his attack.)
Lethal: While you are certainly entitle to your point of view and beliefs, I would ask that you afford me the same rights and courtesy. It’s either that of get yourself down to the bookstore for copies of ‘The Delete Key For Dummies’, The 1st Amendment for Idiots & Liberals” and finally “Using Your Scroll Wheel for Simpletons” because its likely that the things which caused you to make rude comments on the blog are only likely to increase in frequency as the 2012 election nears.
Guest: You call me rude – then call me <[edited for ID protection]>, dummy and simpleton. You personify the word rude as do your posts. I fear that Impish had no idea what a step backward he would be taking by adding you to his blog. Your lack of tolerance and bigotry have seriously degraded what was once a good blog. Lighten up – the world isn’t as bad as you seem to perceive it. There are enough Becks and Limbaughs out there already. (Leprechaun note: Becks and Limbaughs? Seriously? I was SO shooting for John Stewart with a side of Walter Cronkite!)
Lethal: I most certainly did NOT call you “dummy or simpleton” I will plead guilty to <[edited for ID protection]>. It was an attempt at twisting a portion of your screen name into a sarcastic commentary on your comment (the definition of <[edited for ID protection]> is” a person who has trouble articulating and is difficult to understand ). This level of cerebral sarcasm apparently escaped you, for that I am sorry.
The terms Dummies, Idiots & Simpleton were used in relation to fictional self help book titles the “For Dummies” & For Idiots” book series extend to many subject and are nationally well known. The” for Simpletons” series are a recent knock off which I have come across. The titles were designed to point out humorously what you should have been doing all along rather than attacking me.
Speaking of my attitude and tone, I responded to your comment in the same attitude and tone as it was perceived to be sent by you. We all know the line “violence begets violence” well attitude and rude words get you the same thing with a fair extra amount thrown in for good measure.
Our response to actions and comments such as your have been well and publicly documented in the past and should have come as no surprise. Bob was consulted regarding my response to you prior to it being sent after drafting it. Granted its not what he would have written but he is not me and I was the one verbally attacked.
We welcome comments of a debating nature or opposing points of view. Hell we have asked for them,begged for them and encourage them. WE DO NOT welcome personal attacks for not agreeing with us and the opinions we express in our own blog
The problem is most Democrats and Liberals would rather attack us personally than debate the issue(s) choosing to focus on the one particular section or comment that “offends” them and then attempting a cyber flogging of us for it. Seems written point of view debates are too much work and go against” the entitlement free ride” & “maximum return for minimum effort” philosophies espoused by so many of you. Either that or your incapable of defending you point of view with fact and logical discourse conducted in a polite civil manner.
Were it solely up to me and were the blog capable of it, I would see you banned for your comment as well as the subsequent personal attack and indictment of me for treating you in the same manner I was. Which I again would point out is typical democratic/liberal tactics in action, use any tactic as long as you gain your goal and swear the ends justify the means, then vilify the opposition for opposing you using the exact same tactic. Seriously, I have to ask, when you register to be a Democrat do they issue a secret playbook to all of you with these behavioral responses and tactics in it?
1.) You’re NOT going to shut EITHER of us up. Not with personal attacks, not whining about the political/social commentary posts, not with crying that the tone of the e-zine cum blog changed when I came on board not nothing period. Those remarks if anything encourage us when we see them because we know people are actually reading these portions of the issue and we hit nerves hard enough to provoke a reaction of of someone in a society populated largely by apathetics. I sure Impish will tell you in his own words that he reads my stuff with much gusto and thinks its good and on point. If I have a topic or P.o.V. that might prove incendiary I do him the courtesy of running it by him before I post it. While 3 days a week I may have the LAST WORD in the blog, editorially speaking Impish has the last word 7 days a week on what goes in the blog.
2.) You want to express an opinion or offer an opposing point of view for possible publication, we welcome those. The proper place for those sort of responses is to send those of longer than say 5 lines to <DragonLaffs-owner@Yahoogroups.com>. Though we are not using it to send the e-zine out any longer we still use it so you can mail us both.
Go right ahead and put those written comments of 5 lines or less right in the comments section, we’ll see them rest assured. I will be creating an icon to appear after the closing credits to access this e-mail address in a non bot harvestable manner so it will be at the bottom of every blog post from now on for you to refer to.
Should you for some insane reason feel the need to offer constructive criticism of the jokes, our writing styles, the lay outs or anything else please refer to the blog header and the section marked complaint department for where and how to submit those. If you put them in the comments section while I can assure you Impish and I will see them I can also likewise assure you that we are the only people who will see them.
3.) I was dead serious about more of this stuff popping up and with less and less of a humorous bent to it as the election approaches. Despite my detractors assertion that I should “Lighten up – the world isn’t as bad as you seem to perceive it.” both Impish and I agree that the world IS as bad as WE perceive it (it’s not just me) and we live in mortal fear that it well may be worse than even that. So learn the location of the delete key and dust it off, review the location and function of your scroll wheel because more and more we are going to be addressing the pressing issues that the candidates should be addressing as well as a hard look at the candidates ON BOTH SIDES.
4.) Know that if you are going to attack us personally you had best come prepared to pay the price for you rudeness. We are not women, we are not politically correct pansies or liberals, we are men, ex US Service men. Personally I don’t much care which of us you come after. Verbally attack us and I’ll verbally beat on you like a fat chicken wails on a chocolates filled piñata on Easter or Rock & Roll percussion legend on a set of rented drums. Attempt to cyber-bully or stalk us and I can and will see your identify is found out and you are prosecuted for it as well as for attempting to interfere with our First Amendment rights. I work the cyber security industry on a daily basis I assure you I have forgotten more about finding you then you will ever know about hiding from us like a coward after trying to bully us.
We have said most of this before and we’ll probably find ourselves saying it again round about September or October it seems we have to repeat this little sermon bi-annually as tedious as it is for both us and the readers.
Finally I got the impression this commenter was offended by my blunt frank no bs way of speaking the plain truth, warts, hairy moles, hideous scars and all ( oh wait….or is that Impish’s last blind date I’m think of? Nope. I’m positive that’s the truth. His date was even uglier than that). Going with the old adage that no matter how bad you think a particular trait is in a person you can always look around and find somebody worse let me show you that I DO infact demonstrat self restraint and some level of professionalism….maybe not the level that Democrats and Liberal want (they won’t be happy with less than a muzzle) but I do none the less. Let me happily introduce you to a liberals worst nightmare, “The Guy From Boston”
Guest #2: This is borderline child molestation. T.S.A. has crossed the line. Listen to what the girl has to say. We have to live like this because of some murderous losers?!
<Youtube of 6 Year Old Patted Down by T.S.A. attached here>
This individual was not e-mailed or spoken to, however his comment never got posted. Here’s why:
If this was an attempt to call our attention to this incident in the news, see item #2 above and interpret the line “longer than 5 lines” to also mean videos, press clippings photos etc.
You can rest assured though that when it comes to major things like that we’ve probably already seen them and are tracking them. In addition to Impish and I we get topical things referred to us by friends and family as a gesture of support for out blogging efforts. In fact the problem usually is not finding stuff like that worthy of comment, its finding the time to research and write all the comments in a manner and of a quality we want. Even harder than that is picking those to use and which to allow to pass by because there are so many comment worthy items and only 6 slots a week. For instance I was all set to make an issue out of this very subject and had started a rough outline of my thoughts and some links. However it rapidly became evident to me that the issue was being addressed and handled in a timely proper and relevant manner by the T.S.A. Mistakes happen, when the government can admit its’ a mistake and takes immediate corrective action I don’t see the need to castigate it as well for having made a mistake. Hence no Last Word on the subject out of me or Impish.
If it was an attempt to hijack us and force us into discussing something you feel strongly about, HEY! Get your own damned blog we’ve got more than enough to say in this one thank you very much!
Thanks for your kind attention to these remarks.
