OH BLOODY HELL! ME HEAD! Can’t you people murmur and slurp coffee QUIETLY?
And Impish quit your whining and moaning over those bruises or ‘tis a dozen more like ‘em you’ll be getting! ‘Tis the grandda of all hangovers keep house in me poor throbbing head!
Somehow St Patrick’s Day seems to have extended itself to most of two day this year abet somewhat tamer and more reserved for the second day. Other than my head I’m sporting a set of sore feet from being on them so much and a raw throat from too much o’ raising me voice in song & cheer.
While the leprechaun was away the Dragon thought to play apparently and his last word on St. Patrick’s Day 2012: Facts, Myths, and Traditions by John Roach for National Geographic News was so far off the mark as to raise me ire causing him to be on the receiving end of a wee bit o’ shillelagh law to beat the truth of the matter through his thick hide and skull. Those of you who do not read this on the blog of course missed out yet again on all the row and a ruction and may want to go read up on what transpired: https://dragonlaffs.com/2012/03/17/dragon-laffs-1266/#comments
Yes that’s an Irish Coffee. NO! It’s NOT “too bloody early for that sort of thing”. It is in fact medicinal, having consumed far more Guinness, Harp, Bass & Bushmill Whiskey in a single day than you mere mortals are capable of consuming in a life time my hangovers are also that much larger and longer lasting! Oy! IMPISH!!! I thought I TOLD YOU to stop BREATHING SO LOUD!
Have you ever wondered who first uttered the phrase “You Gotta Be Shittin Me?”
Well, it just so happens to have originated through the Father of Our country, way back when George Washington was crossing the Delaware river with his troops.
There were 33 (remember this number) in Washington ‘s boat. It was extremely dark and storming furiously and the water was tossing them about.
Finally, Washington grabbed Corporal Peters (remember this name) and stationed him at the front of the boat with a lantern. He ordered him to keep swinging it, so they could see where they were heading.
Corporal Peters, through driving rain and cold, continued swinging the lantern back and forth, back and forth.
Then a big gust of wind and a wave hit and threw Corporal Peters and his lantern into the Delaware . Washington and his troops searched for nearly an hour trying to find Corporal Peters, but to no avail. All of them felt terrible, for the Corporal had been one of their favorites.
Sometime later, Washington and his troops landed on the other side, wet and totally exhausted. He rallied the troops and told them that they must go on.
Another hour later, one of his men said, ‘General, I see lights ahead.’ They trudged toward the lights and came upon a huge house.
What they didn’t know was that this was a house of ill repute, hidden in the forest to serve all who came.
General Washington pounded on the door, his men crowding around him.
The door swung open, and much to his surprise stood a beautiful woman..
A huge smile came across her face, to see so many men standing there.
Washington was the first to speak, ‘Madam, I am General George Washington and these are my men. We are tired, wet, exhausted, and desperately need warmth and comfort.’
Again, the Madam looked at all the men standing there, and with a broad smile on her face, said, ‘Well, General, you have come to the right place.
We can surely give you warmth and comfort. How many men do you have?’
Washington replied, ‘Well, Madam, there are 32 of us without Peters .’
And the Madam said, ‘You gotta be shittin me.’
That’s why we should be chlorinating the gene pool!
Did we elect these people??
Civil War planes? Let me know how that works out.
I’m saying GREAT paint job.
“We had no idea anyone was buried there.”
I didn’t know we could choose.
This one says it all.
What are the odds of that?
I would have guessed after age 19.

Here’s a trick I learned for you…hold back about an 1/8 cup of the cake mix. Use it to dust & coat the apricot pieces once they are cool and return the rest to the batter. By coating the pieces with the dry cake mix you give the batter something to hang on to and you’ll get a more even distribution of the fruit pieces though out the batter. This is especially important with thinner/lighter batters.

Paradoxical Quote of The Day From Ben Stein:
“Fathom the Hypocrisy of a Government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured… but not everyone must prove they are a citizen.”
Seems to be the day for “twofers” so here is another thought provoking quote for you:
This is from a pamphlet by a Presbyterian minister, William J. H. Boetcker (1873-1962) and entitled The Ten Cannots. It was originally published in 1916 but its message is very fitting to us today
Here are the “Ten Cannots”:
- You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
- You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
- You cannot help little men by tearing down big men.
- You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
- You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
- You cannot establish sound security on borrowed money.
- You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
- You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.
- You cannot build character and courage by destroying men’s initiative and independence.
- And you cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they can and should do for themselves.
1. If you are over forty, and you have a washboard stomach, you are a queer. It means you haven’t sucked back enough beer with the boys and have spent the rest of your free time doing sit-ups, aerobics, and doing the Oprah diet…Faggot.
2. If you have a cat, you are a homo. A cat is like a dog, but queer– it grooms itself constantly but never scratches itself, has a delicate touch except when it uses its claws, and whines to be fed. And just think about how you call a dog… ‘Killer, come here! I said get your arse over here, Killer!’ Now think about how you call a cat…’Bun-bun, come to daddy, snookums!’ Jeeezus, you’re pitched, you’re so queer.
3. If you suck on lollipops, Ring-Pops, baby pacifiers, or any such nonsense, rest assured, you are a Gaylord. A straight man only sucks on BBQ ribs, crab claws, raw oysters, lobster backs, pickled pigs feet, or tits. Anything else and you are a Homo in training and undeniably a fag.
4. If you refuse to take a dump in a public bathroom or piss in a parking lot, you crave a deep homosexual relationship. A man’s world is his toilet; he defecates and urinates where he pleases.
5. If you drink anything other than regular coffee, you’re as camp as a row of tents. A straight man will never be heard ordering a ‘Decaf Soy Latte’. If you’ve put a Decaf Soy Latte to your lips, you’ve had a man there too.
6. If you know more than six names of non-standard colors or four different types of dessert other than ice cream and custard, you might as well be handing out free arse passes. A real man doesn’t have memory space in his brain to remember all of that crap. If you can pick out chartreuse or you know what a ‘fressier’ is you’re gay. And if you can name ANY type of textile other than cotton or denim, you are poofter.
7. If you drive with both hands on the wheel, forget it, you’re dying to tune a meat whistle. A man only puts both hands on the wheel to beep at a slow-arsed driver or to cut the prick off. The rest of the time he needs that hand to change the radio station, eat a hamburger, or hold his beer.
8. If you do not send this off to all the males on your email list because you are afraid of hurting their feelings then you are definitely on the verge on being an arse puncher.
In political news this week:
When Joe Biden heard that the leader of The Monkeys died, he ran down the halls of the White house shouting,
“I’m president now!”
Seeing how we’re being “Politically Incorrect” for the sake of a quick laugh at the risk of the ire of the PC Police and to piss off our resident liberal loon let’s do a “twofer” shall we?
ABSOLUTELY the Best dog joke …
Nancy Pelosi called Harry Reid into her office one day and said, “Harry, I have a plan to win back Middle America in 2012!”
“Great Nancy , but how?” asked Harry.
“We’ll get some cheesy clothes and shoes, like most middle class Americans wear, then stop at the pound and pick up a Labrador Retriever . Then, we’ll go to a nice old country bar in Montana and show them how much admiration and respect we have for the hard working people living there.”
So they did, and found just the place they were looking for in Bozeman, Montana . With the dog in tow, they walked inside and stepped up to the bar.
The bartender took a step back and said, “Hey! Aren’t you Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi?”
“Yes we are!” said Nancy , “And what a lovely town you have here. We were passing through and Harry suggested we stop and take in some local color.”
They ordered a round of bourbon for the whole bar, and started chatting up a storm with anyone who would listen.
A few minutes later, a grizzled old rancher came in, walked up to the Labrador , lifted up its tail, looked underneath, shrugged his shoulders and walked out. A few moments later, in came another old rancher. He walked up to the dog, lifted up its tail, looked underneath, scratched his head and left the bar. For the next hour, another dozen ranchers came in, lifted the dog’s tail, and left shaking their heads.
Finally, Nancy asked, “Why did all those old ranchers come in and look under the dog’s tail? Is it some sort of custom?”
“Lord no,” said the bartender. “Someone’s out there running around town, claiming there’s a Labrador Retriever in here with two assholes!”
And in honor of Obama’s position as Towel-headed Arab Ass Kisser & Bower in Chief….
An Arab enters a taxi……….
Once he is seated he asks the cab driver to turn off the radio because he must not hear music as decreed by his religion and, in the time of the prophet, there was no music, especially Western music which is music of the infidel’s and certainly no radio ……..
So the cab driver politely switches off the radio, stops the cab and opens the back door.
The Arab asks him: “What are you doing man?”
The cabby answers: “In the time of the prophet there were no taxis. So get the hell out and wait for a camel.”
So I don’t count so good when I’m in the hand basket. I may be going to hell for this, but you are coming along too! (for laughing…..)
What? I acknowledged it was my turn and my turn is over. Now Impish gets stuffed back in screaming and kicking like a girl to be once again where he belongs! Cast aspersions on St Patrick’s Day will he? Wear bloody fecking ORANGE on SAINT PATRICK’S DAY? Over my soddin dead body which will be laying a top of his hip deep in a pile of expended brass!

Giddy Up! Adidas unveils cowboy boot sneaker.
Adidas said the Jeremy Scott designed boots are on sale now for $300 and are made from soft leather with a debossed Trefoil on the heel and tongue, and MEGA Soft Cell cushioning.
The company said the boot offers maximum traction and will “get you rodeo-ready with their hybrid cowboy-boot-meets-basketball-trainer style.”
There’s no word on whether a matching outfit will be released… or if rubber glow in the dark spurs are an optional accessory.
NOTE: Not PC
Every state has one, a political figure that is just too stupid to have ever been elected, not only has been but then continually manages to get re-elected and make us hang our heads in shame and embarrassment. In Texas where everything is bigger and we do everything in a big way, this translate to us having not one but 2of these personalities, Governor Rick “Good Hair” Perry ( a recent addition to the Roll of Shaming Texas after his disastrous bid for the Presidential nomination) & Representative Sheila Jackson Lee who basically puts her pump in her mouth every time she says something ands she is CONSTANTLY saying something.
Just when you think you have heard all of the stupid things that are going on in the US — this comes along…
Well, it appears our African-American friends have found yet something else to be pissed about. A black congresswoman (this would be Sheila Jackson Lee, of Houston ), reportedly complained that the names of hurricanes are all Caucasian-sounding names.
She would prefer some names that reflect African-American culture such as Chamiqua, Tanisha, Woeisha, Shaquille, and Jamal. I am NOT making this up!
She would also like the weather reports to be broadcast in ‘language’ that street people can understand because one of the problems that happened in New Orleans was, that black people couldn’t understand the seriousness of the situation, due to the racially biased language of the weather report.
I guess if the weather person says that the winds are going to blow at 140+ MPH, that’s too hard to understand?
I can hear it now: A weatherman in New Orleans says…
Wazzup, mutha-fukkas! Hehr-i-cane Chamiqua be headin’ fo’ yo ass like Leroy on a rocket!
Bitch be a category fo’! So, turn off dem chitlins, grab yo’ chirren, leave yo crib, and head fo’ de nearest FEMA office fo yo FREE shit!
We hope this makes Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee happy !
Ah what the hell, I’ve already pissed off our resident Liberal Loon and the PC Police today I might as well make it a hat trick and offend the overly religious &/or the born again factions with a few jokes too. I can always plead diminished capacity due to nasty epic uber hangover from hell.
During these serious and troubled times, people of all faiths should remember these four great religious truths:
1. Muslims do not recognize Jews as God’s Chosen People.
2. Jews do not recognize Jesus as the Messiah.
3. Protestants do not recognize the Pope as the leader of the Christian world.
4. Baptists do not recognize each other at the liquor Store.
A Sunday school teacher was telling her class the story of the Good Samaritan. She asked the class, “If you saw a person lying on the roadside, all wounded and bleeding, what would you do?”
A little girl broke the hushed silence, “I think I’d throw up.”
SAY A PRAYER
Little Johnny and his family were having Sunday dinner at his Grandmother’s house. Everyone was seated around the table as the food was being served. When Little Johnny received his plate, he started eating right away.
“Johnny! Please wait until we say our prayer.” said his mother.
“I don’t need to,” the boy replied.
“Of course, you do “his mother insisted. “We always say a prayer before eating at our house.”
“That’s at our house.” Johnny explained. “But this is Grandma’s house and she knows how to cook.
OK now that they’re offended lets give the older ones a case of “the vapors” as they say. Start fanning those prayer books all you ladies for the Woman’s Prayer (and mostly gossip) Circle!

Malicious Web Apps: How to Spot Them, How to Beat Them
These days, a Web app can be malware. Here’s what you need to know about this emerging threat, and what to watch for.
Web apps are great. They’re available for use virtually anywhere, anytime, from practically any device that has a Web browser. Web apps are also easy to update and maintain: The developer tweaks the app on the Web server, and everyone who uses it has access to the latest version.
But Web apps can contain more than you bargained for, and in some instances they may actually be malicious. You need to be aware of the risks that Web apps can pose, and know how to protect yourself.
Fireman Bob rushed into a burning building and rescued a beautiful young lady who was clad only in the top half of her baby-doll nightgown. He carried her in his arms down three flights of stairs and saved her from her sure demise.
As they arrived safely, a wash of gratitude rushed over her. She looked at him with great fondness and admiration, and then said, “Oh, you are wonderful! It must have taken great strength and courage to rescue me the way you did.”
“Yes it did,” the fireman admitted. “I had to fight off three other firemen who were trying to get to you first!”

“Jeffrey Alan!” she said, “you shouldn’t use that kind of language. Where did you hear it?”
“My daddy said it,” he responded.
“Well, that doesn’t matter,” she explained. “You don’t know what it means.”
“I do, too,” Jeffrey corrected. “It means the car won’t start.”
Excuse me a second whilst I take me headache medicine!
This reliable Beretta Jetfire .22 Short pistol is a personal favorite of mine and I am never without it. It saved my life a few years ago when attacked by a Grizzly while hiking in the mountains with a family member. I was able to escape, walking at a brisk pace, after I shot my brother in the knee.
Apparently the USA is not the only country infected with the Nanny State and the Liberal’s attempt to usurp our Parental and private rights by invading your personal lives and homes via our kids through their educational institutions in the name of “protecting them”.
ZERO TOLERANCE SQUARED: When a 4-year-old girl named Neaveh drew a picture of a man with a gun at her Kitchener, Ont., Canada, school she wasn’t arrested — her father was. “That’s my daddy’s,” the tyke had told school officials. “He uses it to shoot bad guys and monsters.” The arrest was defended by the school, the police, and child welfare officials. “From a public safety point of view,” said Family and Children’s Services chief Alison Scott, “any child drawing a picture of guns and saying there’s guns in a home would warrant some further conversation with the parents and child.” But it’s not clear that there was any conversation with Jessie Sansone, 26, before he was confronted by three police officers at the school, hauled away in handcuffs,
strip-searched, and charged with “possession of a firearm.” Sansone’s other children were interviewed by Scott’s department, and a search of their home found no firearms — although one toy gun was found, which apparently was the model for the drawing. Police dropped charges and Sansone was released, but Scott said Family and Children’s Services was “still investigating.” (AC/Kitchener Record) …The next day, Neaveh drew an empty skull ( likely it resembled a jackass’s) and explained: “That’s Alison Scott’s. She uses it to bully good guys and daddies.”
Seriously, what lesson and message do you think Neaveh came away from this with? My guess? To fear and be suspicious of those who are SUPPOSED to be in the position of protecting you and to NEVER speak about your family outside of it because if you do you are liable to have your family ripped away from you.
THIS WILL REALLY PISS YOU OFF: A teacher at a school in the Klein (Texas) Independent School District refused a request by a 12-year-old boy to use the restroom. The seventh grader repeated the request several times, but the teacher still refused, and finally told him she would “write him up” as “truant” if he left the room. “The really outrageous part is that she told him, ‘I hope you pee on yourself’,” says Bill Hawkins. The boy didn’t: instead, he was so desperate that he used a water bottle to relieve himself right there in the classroom. If you think the teacher was fired, you don’t understand zero tolerance:
Hawkins is the boy’s new attorney, who his parents hired to appeal the boy’s punishment: an in-school suspension, followed by one month of a “Disciplinary Alternative Education Program” because, school officials say, the boy’s behavior rose to the level of “Engaging in serious or persistent acts of disobedience or disorderly behavior which may prove detrimental to the school, harmful to health and safety and inhibiting the rights of others.” (RC/Houston Chronicle) …And if there’s anyone who knows about inhibiting the rights of others, it’s those liberal school officials!
No, I’m not kidding with this, it actually happened fairly close to me. Here is a link to the story in the Houston Chronicle. http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/article/Student-disciplined-for-unauthorized-potty-break-2683496.php
District officials on Tuesday declined to discuss the case but released a written statement. “Klein ISD must follow proper protocol when dealing with disciplinary matters for all students and the information must be kept confidential. The same is true for matters involving employees,” the statement said.
I’ll tell you what if I had kids in that school I’d DAMNED WELL want to know who this teacher is to insure my kids never went near her! I cannot begin to fathom HOW the teacher after humiliating the kid by telling him she hoped he pissed himself and doing everything in her power to basically insure it can get of not only scot free but without any public exposure!
WELL-TRAINED PROFESSIONALS III: Rahul Chandani, 6, fell on the playground at Devonshire Elementary School in Skokie, Ill. It was icy and snow-covered, and he slipped. “His teacher told him, ‘You’re a big boy – I can’t carry you’,” says his mother, so the boy crawled back to class.
His mother pointed out that school officials should have known he was injured: he had a lump on his head “the size of a tennis ball” and complained of being dizzy. “As soon as I saw him I knew something was wrong.” Yet they didn’t have him medically evaluated, or call an ambulance. He had a broken leg and a concussion, and ended up being out of school for six weeks, and in rehab for six months. The family is suing the school district, charging negligence. (RC/Chicago Sun Times)…They made him crawl, so maybe it’s time to make them crawl.
Personally I’m on board with that solution, whack her with a bat, give her a concussion, break her leg. then make her crawl inside and apologies at length to the child and explain to the class how egregiously wrong her behavior was. ONLY THEN give her her pink slip and allow her to call for her own medical treatment. If there is any justice in the world it will be Obamacare and she’ll have to wait hours until they decide if she is worth the cost of her medical care.
In case you cannot read that it says “ I don’t seem to remember the parts about Life, less Freedom and the pursuit of other people’s assets. Remind me again where it talks about the establishment of a permanent Nanny State too?”
SIDE BUSINESS: The Noble Network charter school in Chicago, Ill., is charging students $5 to attend detention for “minor disciplinary infractions” such as not tying shoelaces when told, or possessing soft drinks. “It’s nickel-and-diming kids for literally nothing that really matters,” complains the executive director of Parents United for Responsible Education, Julie Woestehoff. Critics say the fines, which brought in $200,000 last year, are a ploy to drive out “troubled” students to push up graduation rates. “If you have rules, you have to enforce them,” responds the school district’s CEO, Michael Milkie. “We have set that fee to offset the cost to administer detention.” After 12 $5 detentions, students are required to attend a “discipline class” –which costs $140. At least some parents support the measure. Kimberly Davis said she paid $300 for fees and behavior classes for her
daughter, but adds she will soon graduate. “You have to buy into the program,” Davis said. (RC/Chicago Tribune) …Right: that’s what the others are complaining about.
Guess they better start listing “debt cards” among the school supplies! Wonder if they have infraction sales or multiple infraction discounts?
At Sacred Heart Catholic Academy in Shawano, Wisconsin, about six miles from the Menominee Indian reservation, 7th grade student Miranda Washinawatok taught another student how to say “hello” and “I love you” in her native language of Menominee. The innocuous gesture resulted in her suspension from one school basketball game.
As Amy Spicer explained on Imagine 2050:
Initially “reprimanded” by the teacher who overheard the two students, Washinawatok was further chastised by another teacher who told her she didn’t appreciate that Miranda had upset the first teacher because “she is like a daughter to me.”
The racial intolerance displayed by both “educators” is sad.
Hiding behind a defense that Miranda was suspended for an “attitude problem,” the school has since taken little action in dealing with this clear case of discrimination.
Miranda’s mother, Karen Washinawataok, director of the Language and Culture Commission of the Menominee tribe, told Imagine 2050 that the school promised her daughter and the Menominee tribe public apologies, but added that only “a letter was sent to parents and guardians. A real generic letter of apology, that really did not go into specifics as to why there was this apology.”
Yup makes sense to me. Trample on NATIVE AMERICAN heritage and an attempt to raise awareness and educate by a NATIVE AMERICAN student, but let that same student have been a sod all illegal alien who’s parents were not paying taxes and who’s ungrateful call disruptive kids were getting a free ride though our education system on our dime or better yet had she been wearing a Burka and been Muslim instructing the other student in Sharia law everything would have been just ducky and she would have received special treatment and probably a bloody commendation for school spirit besides! I wonder if the school offered them beads, blankets and trinkets with their insincere cookie cutter admit nothing apology too?
What is REALLY needed is for Parents, Parent-Teacher’s Associations and concerned taxpayers to adopt a Zero Tolerance for Zealously Excessive Educators! Voice you displeasure, the the school systems know you will not tolerate your children being taught by these people, go to PTA and School Board meetings speak up raise hell! PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS AS PARENTS! IF enough people complain and cause a calamity they cannot stonewall us! What’s that? Tenure?! I got your “tenure” right here! Child endangerment, neglect and abuse trump parental rights how is it they do not trump tenure? UNLESS the Child Protection Services are actually in league with the school systems in a concerted effort to usurp your rights and control over your children HOW IS IT that teacher like the one at Devonshire Elementary School in Skokie, Ill. DO NOT EVER come up for investigation for endangering a child’s life? If that were his parent, they would be all over them like stink on a liberals ideas! Why are teachers automatically immune from this sort of investigation and charges? Adults & Parents who are accused of abuse and harm to children get their names splashed all over the paper guilty or not? How much you want to bet that Jessie Sansone, Neaveh’s father had his picture and arrest ON FALSE GROUNDS prominently reported in the paper? How much more are you willing to wager that clearing his name in as loud and publicly prominent a manner was NOT high on the list of the same paper(s) or ANYWHERE on the agenda of Family and Children’s Services chief Alison Scott? Can I get any takers betting that Alison never saw charges preferred against her for filing a false report? NO? Didn’t think so!
My point is this only goes on because we elect people like Obama, Clinton Pelosi, Reed and other liberals to places of power over our children and allow then to go about their business unsupervised, w/o proper oversight and sans the mechanisms & procedures in place to force them to be held accountable for their actions!. Hell even in WAR if I made a costly mistake or issued a questionable order, I would have been held accountable for my acts and punished appropriately up to and including loss of my pay, my rank, my commission and possibly imprisonment! If soldiers have to be accountable for their actions in the heat of battle WHY are not teachers and Family and Children’s Services people held professionally accountable for their actions? A classroom is certainly NOT the battlefield but our children sure seem as though they are treated like the enemy!
