Its just a crying shame that ‘Impish & Lethal’ or “the Dragon & the Leprechaun’ don’t fit the rhythm of the theme song lyrics for that show other wise I’d redo those too!
What’s that Impish? No, of course not! Your being depicted as Pinky in no way means I think you have the IQ of a refrigerator light bulb! It’s umm… all about lay out and height of the characters as compared to us, yeah that’s it! Plus you know I am rather single minded about acquiring power and money just like Brain was about ruling the world while you do sort of like to side track and investigate shiny things. Speaking of of shiny things, I had that laser light disco ball set up installed in your private Lounge Lizard Seduction Lair, you should go check it out! OK? Yes I agree that is the perfect place to work on your Austin Powers imitation act. Bud-bye now!
Sheesh! Damned buttinski insecure whiney Dragon! You take a little comedic license and all the sudden you’re insulting his intelligence and hurting his feelings! He better just be reading those damned women’s rags again about males needing to be sensitive and in touch with their feelings because if he’s planning on coming out of the closet I’m dropping my representation of him. We already have a gay purple dinosaur doing the kids and sensitive/ life lesson angle, Anderson Cooper beat him to the the gay political commentator market already and gay bloggers are a tube of Preparation H a dozen- there’s no market angle for a sensitive flaming dragon even if the 50% of the flaming would be literally fire.
As far as his Austin Powers imitation act, believe me he’s far more a natural as Old Fat Bastard than Austin Powers. He’d do a far better job as a Pinky imitator, I mean their lines are naturally so much alike and how hard can it be to remember the signature phrase “NARF!”
OK, lets get this issue rolling while our coffee is still hot and before Impish gets back shall we?
Funny, I thought Assbook was the Democratic Party’s Social Media network!
Durable Borgnine’s motto: ‘You gotta go to work’
DAVID GERMAIN, AP Movie Writer Updated 07:08 p.m., Sunday, July 8, 2012
LOS ANGELES (AP) — He was a tubby tough guy with a pug of a mug, as unlikely a big-screen star or a romantic lead as could be imagined.
Yet Ernest Borgnine won a woman’s love and an Academy Award in one of the great lonely-hearts roles in “Marty,” a highlight in a workhorse career that spanned nearly seven decades and more than 200 film and television parts.
Borgnine, who died Sunday at 95, worked to the end. One of his final roles was a bit part as a CIA records-keeper in 2011’s action comedy “Red” — fittingly for his age, a story of retired spies who show that it’s never too late to remain in the game when they’re pulled back into action.
“I keep telling myself, ‘Damn it, you gotta go to work,'” Borgnine said in a 2007 interview with The Associated Press. “But there aren’t many people who want to put Borgnine to work these days. They keep asking, ‘Is he still alive?'”
And yet people put him to work — and kept him working — from his late-blooming start as an actor after a 10-year Navy career through modern times, when he had a recurring voice role on “SpongeBob SquarePants,” became the oldest actor ever nominated for a Golden Globe and received the lifetime-achievement award last year from the Screen Actors Guild.
Borgnine died of renal failure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with his wife and children at his side, said spokesman Harry Flynn.
With his beefy build and a huge orb of a head that looked hard enough to shatter granite, Borgnine naturally was cast as heavies early on, notably as Sgt. Fatso Judson, the brute who beat Frank Sinatra‘s character to death in 1953’s Pearl Harbor saga “From Here to Eternity.”
More bad guy roles followed, but Borgnine showed his true pussycat colors as lovesick Marty Piletti, a Bronx butcher who, against all odds and his own expectations, finds romance with a wallflower in “Marty,” adapted from Paddy Chayefsky‘s television play. Borgnine won the best-actor Oscar, and the film picked up three other awards, including best picture.
It turned out to be Borgnine’s only Oscar nomination, yet it was a star-making part that broke him out of the villain mold. Borgnine went on to roles in such films as “The Dirty Dozen,” ”The Wild Bunch,” ”The Flight of the Phoenix,” ”The Poseidon Adventure” and “Escape from New York,” but after “Marty,” the veteran sailor’s most memorable character appropriately came with the title role of the 1960s TV comedy “McHale’s Navy” and its big-screen spinoff.
Mischievous con man McHale, commander of a World War II PT boat manned by misfits and malcontents, was far closer in spirit than shy Marty or savage Fatso to the real Borgnine, who had a cackling laugh and a reputation as a prankster.
Despite his big-hearted nature, Borgnine was typecast as a thug from the start, playing bad guys in a series of Westerns including Randolph Scott‘s “The Stranger Wore a Gun,” Joan Crawfordand Sterling Hayden’s “Johnny Guitar” and Gary Cooper‘s “Vera Cruz” and Victor Mature and Susan Hayward‘s historical saga “Demetrius and the Gladiators.”
Borgnine was playing another nasty character opposite Spencer Tracy in “Bad Day at Black Rock” when he auditioned for “Marty.” In a 2004 interview, Borgnine recalled that Chayefsky and “Marty” director Delbert Mann thought of him as an actor whose lone screen specialty was to “kill people.”
The filmmakers had hoped to cast Rod Steiger, who played the lead in the TV version of “Marty,” but he had just landed a part Borgnine himself coveted — the bad guy Jud Fry in “Oklahoma!” Mann and Chayefsky flew to the “Black Rock” location to audition Borgnine, who showed up wearing a “cowboy suit, cowboy hat, three-day growth of beard, cowboy boots,” the actor recalled. He even began the audition in a Western drawl before shifting to Marty’s Bronx accent.
Borgnine said he knew immediately he had won over Mann and Chayefsky, and “Marty” charmed audiences who saw for the first time that he could play the teddy bear as well as the beast.
No one knew Borgnine could act at all — himself included — until he came home from World War II after his 10-year Navy stint. He enlisted in 1935, was discharged in 1941, then re-enlisted when the war began, serving on a destroyer.
As he contemplated what to do after the war, Borgnine’s mother suggested acting.
“She said, ‘You always like getting in front of people and making a fool of yourself, why don’t you give it a try?'” Borgnine recalled last year, shortly before receiving his SAG lifetime honor. “I was sitting at the kitchen table and I saw this light. No kidding. It sounds crazy. And 10 years later, I had Grace Kelly handing me an Academy Award.”
Mann and Chayefsky also won Oscars, and modest, gentle “Marty” claimed the best-picture prize over big-budget contenders “The Rose Tattoo,” ”Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing,” ”Picnic” and “Mister Roberts.”
“Marty” made his career, but the success also brought complications for Borgnine.
“The Oscar made me a star, and I’m grateful,” Borgnine said in 1966. “But I feel had I not won the Oscar I wouldn’t have gotten into the messes I did in my personal life.”
Those messes included four failed marriages, including one in 1964 to singer Ethel Merman that lasted less than six weeks.
But Borgnine’s fifth marriage, in 1973 to Norwegian-born Tova Traesnaes, endured and brought with it an interesting business partnership. She manufactured and sold her own beauty products under the name of Tova and used her husband’s rejuvenated face in her ads.
During a 2007 interview with The Associated Press, Borgnine expressed delight that their union had reached 34 years. “That’s longer than the total of my four other marriages,” he commented, laughing heartily.
Borgnine played a sensitive role opposite Bette Davis in another film based on a Chayefsky TV drama, “The Catered Affair,” a film that was a personal favorite. It concerned a New York taxi driver and his wife who argued over the expense of their daughter’s wedding.
Among Borgnine’s other films were “Three Bad Men,” ”The Vikings,” ”Torpedo Run” and “Barabbas,” ”Ice Station Zebra,” ”The Adventurers,” ”Willard” and “The Greatest” (as Muhammad Ali‘s manager).
More recently, Borgnine had a recurring role as the apartment house doorman-cum-chef in the NBC sitcom “The Single Guy.” He had a small role in the unsuccessful 1997 movie version of “McHale’s Navy.” And he was the voice of Mermaid Man on “SpongeBob SquarePants” and Carface in “All Dogs Go to Heaven 2.”
“I don’t care whether a role is 10 minutes long or two hours,” he said in 1973. “And I don’t care whether my name is up there on top, either. Matter of fact, I’d rather have someone else get top billing; then if the picture bombs, he gets the blame, not me.”
In 2007, Borgnine became the oldest Golden Globe nominee ever, at 90, for the TV movie “A Grandpa for Christmas.” It came 52 years after his only other Globe nomination, for “Marty,” which he won.
He didn’t win that second time, but Borgnine was as gracious as could be about it.
“Hey, I already got one,” Borgnine said. “I was nominated and I think that’s wonderful. You don’t have to win them all.”
Ermes Efron Borgnino was born in Hamden, Conn., on Jan. 24, 1917, the son of Italian immigrant parents. The family lived in Milan when the boy was 2 to 7, then returned to Connecticut, where he attended school in New Haven.
When Borgnine joined the Navy, he weighed 135 pounds; when he left 10 years later, he weighed 100 pounds more.
“I wouldn’t trade those 10 years for anything,” he said in 1956. “The Navy taught me a lot of things. It molded me as a man, and I made a lot of wonderful friends.”
For a time he contemplated taking a job with an air-conditioning company. But his mother persuaded him to enroll at the Randall School of Dramatic Arts in Hartford. He stayed four months, the only formal training he received.
He appeared in repertory at the Barter Theater in Virginia, toured as a hospital attendant in “Harvey” and played a villain on TV’s “Captain Video.”
After earning $2,300 in 1951, Borgnine almost accepted a position with an electrical company. But the job fell through, and he returned to acting, moving into a modest house in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley.
His first marriage was to Rhoda Kenins, whom he met when she was a Navy pharmacist’s mate and he was a patient. They had a daughter, but the marriage ended in divorce after his “Marty” stardom.
Borgnine married Mexican actress Katy Jurado in 1959, and their marriage resulted in headlined squabbles from Hollywood to Rome before it ended in 1964.
In 1963, he and Merman startled the show business world by announcing, after a month’s acquaintance, that they would marry when his divorce from Jurado became final. The Broadway singing star and the movie tough guy seemed to have nothing in common, and their marriage ended in 38 days after a fierce battle.
“If you blinked, you missed it,” Merman once cracked.
Next came one-time child actress Donna Rancourt, with whom Borgnine had a daughter, and finally his happy union with Tova.
On Jan. 24, 2007, Borgnine celebrated his 90th birthday with a party for friends and family at a West Hollywood bistro. Still boisterous, Borgnine made a rare concession to age at 88 when he gave up driving the bus he would take around the country, stopping to talk with local folks along the way.
During an interview at the time, Borgnine complained that he wanted to continue acting but roles were tough to find at his age.
“I just want to do more work,” he said. “Every time I step in front of a camera I feel young again. I really do. It keeps your mind active and it keeps you going.”
Same holds true with Leprechauns and Dragons, in that exact order.
Biggest turn on for guys!
(Even more than boob jobs!)
Men all over the country are urging their wives and sweethearts to get this ‘chic’ procedure.
The ongoing cost for this piece of designer piercing in the UK now exceeds £10,000. Many men feel it is worth it and are prepared to pay a much higher price for it!!
TRY NOT TO LAUGH… I DARE YOU !!!
Now in the interest of equal time/opposing viewpoints…yadda…yadda…yadda:
and once again, Détente in the war between the sexes is momentarily achieved!
It started (I THINK) with the Rudy Eugene, who authorities suspect may have been high on a dangerous new street drug known as “bath salts,”who tried eating the homeless man’s face in Miami back on May 30th and had to be shot 4 times to stop him (apparently Miami Police have yet to be trained in the art of putting down zombies). Now it seems like once a week someone is going “zombie” and doing the gnaw on inappropriate flesh thing. They blame “bath salts’, synthetic marijuana called K-2 or that the person is suffering from “excited delirium”.
Texas man barks at neighbor, eats dog
A Waco resident has been charged with cruelty to a nonlivestock animal in an incident in which a man claiming to be on a synthetic form of marijuana called K-2 chased a neighbor while barking and growling and then attacked a family dog, which he beat, strangled and then started to eat, KWTX-TV is reporting.
Michael Terron Daniel, 22, was arrested Monday without incident, the Waco station says.
On June 14, a caller told police that a man was “going crazy,” KWTX says. The man, who claimed to have ingested K-2, “got down on his hands and knees and chased a neighbor while barking and growling like a dog,” a witness told police.
The man took a black dog to the front porch of the home, beat and strangled the animal and then “began to bite into the dog, ripping pieces of the flesh away,” Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton told the station.
Officers reportedly found Daniel sitting on the porch with blood on his face, hands and clothing, KWTX says.
Even our usually ‘last on board’ government has been taking notice of the whole zombie issue, as I reported 2 weeks ago here FEMA-
Fantastically Epic (at) Mismanagement (of) Apocalypses- I MEAN The Federal Emergency Management Agency has acknowledged the publics concern by releasing a graphic novel, “Preparedness 101: Zombie Pandemic” which demonstrates the importance of being prepared for any large scale Emergency, including apparently the possibility of an imminent synthetic recreational pharmaceuticals inducing excited delirium attacks by druggies the rest of us would call the Zombie Apocalypse. [To download your own copy of the novella in Pdf format click here.]
A Zombie by any reason or cause regardless of what portion of my still living breathing anatomy he’s trying to munch on is still a damned ZOMBIE! I think we can all agree that the only good Zombie IS A DEAD ZOMBIE! Unless of course Holder & Obama can figure out a way to sign them up to vote Democratic and use them just like the young illegal aliens and those posing as dead voters (or in this case UNdead voters) to stuff his ballots come November, then they’ll wind up with some PC name and killing them will be an abuse or their rights or profiling or some shit.
All I know is if it LOOKS like a zombie, shuffles like a zombie, moans unintelligibly like a zombie or tries to eat someone (ESPECIALLY me or Molly) like a zombie, I’m going to exterminate it like a zombie (blow its head clean off) and claim an “ standing my ground in the face of an imminent danger of zombie apocalypse” self defense defense if it ever comes trial time I kid you not.
These rules are so true.

Buying an election- the Illegal Immigrant Appeasement Way
Arpaio: Obama Is ‘Arrogant’ on Immigration
Tuesday, 26 Jun 2012 11:25 AM By Paul Scicchitano and Kathleen Walter
Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio tells Newsmax.TV that Monday’s unanimous Supreme Court decision upholding a key provision of his state’s tough immigration law won’t change day-to-day enforcement efforts, but he called the Obama administration’s plan to ignore calls from Grand Canyon State police “arrogant.”
Published reports quoting unnamed Obama administration officials indicate that the federal government is suspending agreements with Arizona police over the enforcement of federal immigration laws, and that the Homeland Security Department has been told to decline many of the calls it receives from Arizona police over illegal immigrants.
“I don’t like to use the word arrogant, but it looks like they’re somewhat arrogant,” snapped the Maricopa County sheriff in an exclusive interview on Monday. “They took me to court last month — federal court, after a three-and-a-half year investigation stating that we systemically racial profile.”
Arpaio, who didn’t immediately know what effect if any Monday’s ruling would have on the Justice Department action against him, said he predicted the Obama administration might try to essentially circumvent the Supreme Court ruling and “I’m not too happy with this,” he acknowledged.
“What good is officers under the Supreme Court ruling to stop people on crimes — and then determine if they’re here illegally working with ICE — if the federal government will not take them off the law enforcement’s hands? So I have a concern about that, but I have a few strategies in mind if that happens with my organization,” he said. “But it doesn’t surprise me.”
The high court unanimously upheld the most controversial aspect of Arizona’s tough immigration law requiring police officers to check the immigration status of people they stop in an opinion written by Justice Anthony Kennedy.
But in a split decision, the justices also ruled that the three other challenged provisions went too far in intruding on federal law, including one provision that makes it a crime for illegal immigrants to work, and another that requires them to carry their documents.
“I’m glad they protected one section, but on the other hand we’ve been doing this — my office — for four or five years — enforcing the state laws,” Arpaio explained. “It’s not going to make much of a difference with us — how we do business, fighting illegal immigration.”
Arpaio promotes himself as “America’s toughest sheriff.” He has limited county inmates to two meals a day, banned “sexually explicit material” in prison, reinstituted chain gangs, and set up a “tent city” as an extension of the Maricopa County Jail.
“People will say it’s a victory for the federal government because of three other issues that were dismissed, but I think this is important to reaffirm what we’ve been doing for all these years,” he said of the Supreme Court ruling.
He also said he wasn’t surprised that the high court voted unanimously to uphold the requirement for police officers to check the immigration status of people they stop.
“I’m going to keep doing what we’ve been doing. Nothing changes,” he assured, acknowledging that the ruling will not stop future lawsuits.
“They sue me. They harass me. They call me every name in the book. They demonstrate against me — [Rev. Al] Sharpton. I can go on and on. They’ve been doing that for years against me — just because I’m doing my job,” he said. “So I’m sure it’s going to continue. They’re going to find other reasons now with this Supreme Court ruling to go after me. But that’s okay.”
Arpaio became sheriff of Maricopa County — Arizona’s largest, which centers on Phoenix — in 1993. He has been re-elected five times and is up before voters again in November.
He insists that his agency has already undergone intensive training to avoid racial profiling, a potential concern raised by Justice Kennedy.
“When you look at training, we probably have the best trained agency in the country because ICE has trained 100 of my deputies and 100 of my officers in the jail for five-week training,” he said. “Who else can say that?”
Even so, he fears that the ultimate end game of the Obama administration is to grant amnesty to illegal aliens.
“What I’m concerned about that this is just a road to amnesty,” he declared. “This is the ultimate goal of the White House, so we have to watch that, and see how that progresses —and every little step they’re taking. One by one, they’re chipping away — all geared to have amnesty.”
My Call to the Department of Justice Racism And Civil Liberties HOTLINE!!
When the news broke that the Department of Justice had set up a “hotline” to call in abuses of civil liberties in Arizona after the Supreme Court ruled on SB1070, I didn’t think much of it.
Then I called in. I can’t believe what I heard.
Luckily, I recorded it.
Justice Scalia: Obama’s Immigration Stance ‘Boggles the Mind’
Monday, 25 Jun 2012 06:15 PM By Marti Lotman
Justice Antonin Scalia took President Barack Obama to task in a scathing 22-page dissent to Monday’s Supreme Court decision striking down the majority of Arizona’s anti-illegal immigration law, calling Obama’s failure to enforce parts of the Immigration Act “mind boggling.”
“The president said at a news conference that the new program is ‘the right thing to do’ in light of Congress’s failure to pass the administration’s proposed revision of the Immigration Act,” Scalia wrote in his dissent. “Perhaps it is, though Arizona may not think so. But to say, as the Court does, that Arizona contradicts federal law by enforcing applications of the Immigration Act that the President declines to enforce boggles the mind.”
The Reagan appointee went on to write:
“Arizona bears the brunt of the country’s illegal immigration problem. Its citizens feel themselves under siege by large numbers of illegal immigrants who invade their property, strain their social services, and even place their lives in jeopardy. Federal officials have been unable to remedy the problem, and indeed have recently shown that they are unwilling to do so. Thousands of Arizona’s estimated 400,000 illegal immigrants—including not just children but men and women under 30—are now assured immunity from enforcement, and will be able to compete openly with Arizona citizens for employment.”
Scalia called Obama’s immigration enforcement policy “lax,” alleging that the federal government does not want to enforce immigration laws, which could leave the States “helpless before those evil effects of illegal immigration.”
Scalia argued that the entire Arizona immigration law should have been upheld because the state is “entitled” to craft its own immigration policy.
The majority of the justices ruled Monday that Arizona’s law is unconstitutional with the exception of the provision that allows police officers to ask about an individual’s immigration status if they are pulled over during a traffic stop.
Of course his stance is unreasonable and irrational…unless you seek the motive behind the method. All he needs now is to get his pals at A.C.O.R.N out there to register them and he has a personal army of votes and has effectively bought an election at the low low cost of the sovereignty of our borders! For all his arrogance he’s NOT a stupid man, he knows that with popular opinion against him on so many issues and his approval rating at less than 50% and severely anemic as compared to other Presidents in July of a reelection year his only hope of winning is to blatantly stuff the ballot box.
I can hear you naysayers and Doubting Thomas types now “Oh Lethal your mistaken, he’s not that Machiavellian it’s just a Democratic Party plank. There is no way he’d try something so obvious. You see evil ulterior motivations in everything!”
Really? Pray tell then why else is Eric Holder using what time and resources the “Department of ‘Justice’ ( I use that term in the vaguest broadest interpretation of its meaning since there has been very little justice done by the DoJ under Holder) has that are not tied up in obstructing Congress’s investigation into the ‘Fast & Furious” fiasco to prevent states from implementing any Voter ID requirements or from purging their rolls of the deceased or people who have filed change of address information showing they have left that state?
Common sense ( a phrase not associated with the Obama Administration) has clearly shown that A.G. Holder & the DoJ’s arguments with regard to why these things cannot and should not be done (notice they have never said they are ILLEGAL or unconstitutional) are about as full of bio-waste as a baby’s morning diaper. So what other motivation for blocking States rights yet again could there possibly be unless Obama is seeking another Chicago-A.C.O.R.N incident from his first election abet on a national/nation wide scale this time around? Such a move is consistent with the arrogance and hubris of Obama as well as his distain for the Constitution.
P.S.: You think this weeks banner theme was cheesy? Just wait until next weeks! I think Impish is even getting in on that act too!
