Leprechaun Laughs # 268 for October 15 2014

You peer into the Conference Room and see basically the same set up as last week with perhaps a few more chairs added to the Preferred Seating area, most of those with shiny new brass tags. A quick scan shows 3 row of 12 separated into groups of 4 by 2 aisles,36 seats in all. All of them appear filled apparently those with Preferred Seating were allowed in before you. Impish noticed you and goes from talking with several people up to the podium.

What? You expected something to change between last week and this week? I see some of you were smart enough to get your own coffee and pastry down stairs. Good I won’t have to compete with some many growling stomach as I did last week to be heard.

Lets get right to the brass tacks shall we. As on Monday Morning we had donations from 37 separate people. Given that Monday was a holiday and some folk had asked for the snail mail address towards the end  which Impish had not yet seen mail from while our funding drive is closed we’ll be delaying final judgment on the situation a few more days. Impish will be away from home yesterday and today so it will be at least Thursday or Friday before he gets to go through all his mail. AS late as yesterday morning I responded to someone in the comments section looking for the snail mail address.

Let me just say at this point that 37 is not 45 and therefore not the 10% participation level and due to the unforeseen technicality of the holiday followed by Impish impromptu get away you people have a few more days grace to get donations in but the next count WILL be the LAST and FINAL count.

I also noticed we lost a single subscriber, between last week and this week. That’s ok by me and actually I applaud whomever’s principles and ethics. Rather than be a blog welfarian they chose to  unsubscribe because they felt we were not even worth a single dollar an year. [Actually I figure they took my remarks personally and didn’t like being called on being a tight wad cheap azz.]

Personally, I’m of a mind to delay the decision 60 days to see how long the uptick in commenting and voting for issues participation  lasts before making a decision. Impish and I will I’m sure be discussing the situation once he gets back and all the figures are in.

Moving right along as I’ve got a quarter section test to study for and take.

Of course those mini chocolate glazed Donut help too!

Paul B Says 1

For 2 years, a man was having an affair with an Italian woman.
One night, she confided in him that she was pregnant. Not wanting to ruin
his reputation or his marriage, he paid her a large sum of money if she
would go to Italy to secretly have the child. If she stayed in Italy to
raise the child, he would also provide child support until the child turned
18. She agreed, but asked how he would know when the baby was born.

To keep it discrete, he told her to simply mail him a post card, and write
‘Spaghetti’ on the back. He would then arrange for the child support
payments to begin.

One day, about 9 months later, he came home to his confused wife.
‘Honey!,’ she said, ‘you received a very strange post card today .’ He said
‘Just give it to me and I’ll explain it later,’
She did, and watched as her husband read the card, turned white, and
fainted. On the card was written:

Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti.
Three with meatballs, two without.
Send extra sauce!

Fall is time to get that oven cranking as much for the free heat at night as it is for the good things that come out of it. Some of the best things go well with coffee for desert, snack time of even breakfast.

Recipe Warning

That pretty much covers all the recipes this issue so dig out those elastic waist bands, drool bibs and sit down before you fall down before proceeding.

OK that officially makes this recipe a DOUBLE ALERT

Get a grip on something Ginny or better yet duck and cover to avoid getting knocked down by a low flying dragon desperate to get to these little beauties.. If you are planning on making these to take someplace I suggest locating some foil mini muffin papers as they make removing, transporting and serving very easy.

Yield: 6 servings  |  Level: Intermediate

Ingredients

1/3 cup finely crushed chocolate wafers

1 orange, zested
1 egg
Butter, for greasing

Special equipment: mini muffin tin

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the crushed chocolate wafers and the melted butter. Place a tightly packed teaspoon of the wafer mixture into each mini-muffin cup and press down firmly.
In a food processor combine the ricotta cheese, cream cheese, 1/4 cup of the sugar, half of the orange zest, and the egg. Blend until smooth. Lightly grease the sides of the mini muffin tin with butter. Fill the cups with about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the cheesecake mixture.

Transfer the mini muffin tin to a wire rack and let cool for 30 minutes. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. Use a small knife to gently pop the cheesecakes out of the cups.
Just before serving, combine the remaining orange zest with the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Top each individual cheesecake with about 1/4 teaspoon of the orange zest mixture and serve.

The End

About lethalleprechaun

I believe in being the kind of man who, when my feet touch the floor in the morn', causes the Devil to say "BUGGER ME! HIMSELF IS UP!" ======== I'm a White Married Heterosexual who fervently believes in the war(s) we are fighting, the Second Amendment which I plan on defending with my last breath and my last round of ammunition as well as Arizona's stringent law on Immigration and the need for the border wall. I'm a right of center Con-centrist with Tea Party & Republican sympathies who drives an SUV. I am a Life Time Member of the NRA, a Charter Member of the Patriots' Border Alliance and North American Hunters Association. If there is a season for it and I can shoot one I'll eat it and proudly wear its fur. I believe PETA exists solely to be a forum for Gays, Vegetarians, Hollywood snobbery to stupid to get into politics and Soybean Growers. The ACLU stopped protecting our civil liberties sometime after the 1960s and now serves its own bigoted headline grabbing agenda much in the same way as the Southern Poverty Law Center. I am ecstatic that WE the PEOPLE finally got mad enough to rise up and take back the Government from WE the ENTITLED and reverently wish the Liberals would just get over the loss and quit whining/protesting all the time. After all they're just reaping what they've sown. I am Pro-choice both when it comes to the issue of abortion AND school prayer. I believe in a government for the people, by the people which represents and does the people's will. Therefore I an Pro States rights and mandatory term limits but against special interest group campaign contributions and soft money. I think that sports teams who allow their players to sit or take a knee during the National Anthem should be boycotted until the message is received that this is not acceptable behavior for role models for children. I believe Congressional salaries should be voted on bi-annually by the people they represent and not by themselves. I think Congress should be subject to every law they pass on the populace including any regarding Social Security or Healthcare. Speaking of the Healthcare bill (or con job as I see it) I hope Trump will overturn it and set things back to normal. I oppose the building of an Mosque or ANY Islamic center at or within a 10 mile radius of Ground Zero in New York. I will fight those in favor of this until hell freezes over and then I will continue to fight it hand to hand on the ice. Further I think the ban on immigrants from certain nations known to harbor and promote terrorism is a justified measure, at least until we can come up with better methods of vetting and tracking those non citizens we allow in the country. We did not inflict this measure on them those who refuse to point out, denounce or fight radical religious terrorism brought this upon themselves.

    You speak about being a welfarian. You do not like others to read your material and not pay for it.
    The jokes and pictures you copy and use are automatically copyrighted under the 1978 copyright law by the creators. Do you pay a royalty for each and every thing you place
    in your blog or are you also a welfarian? I think we both know the answer.

    • lethalleprechaun says:

      Fair use is a limitation and exception to the exclusive right granted by copyright law to the author of a creative work. In United States copyright law, fair use is a doctrine that permits limited use of copyrighted material without acquiring permission from the rights holders. Examples of fair use include commentary, search engines, criticism, parody, news reporting, research, teaching, library archiving and scholarship. It provides for the legal, unlicensed citation or incorporation of copyrighted material in another author’s work.

      I think Michael that we are doing nothing different than many other blogs which require much higher levels of payment. Well we ARE doing ONE thing different. We’re allowing people like you who want to get all huffy over being called out on refusing to chip in a lousy $1 to keep things running to take offense at our remarks and comment. IF as you assert we didn’t like others reading our material and not paying for it, we’d not have given a free pass to Veterans and the Disabled/Fixed Income groups NOR would you be able to access it AT ALL w/o first providing some method of payment for the privilege!

      We’ve never the material presented was our intellectual property unless it actually was. We have complained with any request to remove material that has been brought to our attention (exactly 3 times in the life of the blog). We DO spend a lot of unpaid time researching locating filtering verifying and presenting this material

        on a domain we pay for

      . We are not asking to be paid for our time, we are asking for help paying for the domain, storage and other aspects of the actual blog itself NOT the contents. Of course narrow minded open mouthed liberals like yourself who’ll demand that the flow of money be always in your direction and bitch if you have to pay a fair share of anything will refuse to recognize that distinction because you’d have no factual or logical argument and you can’t default to playing the racist card because it can’t possibly apply here.

    • impishdragon says:

      Michael you poor pathetic thing. You really don’t get it, do you? We don’t want people to pay to read our material, we want EVERYONE to read our material. And take it seriously. And seriously consider all the things we have to say. We want the people who DO read it to forward it to everyone they know and then have those people forward it on as well. We work our collective asses off, no only on the blog, but at our regular jobs (mine averages 60 hours a week) and a huge part of everything I make goes to those who don’t work, those who stand there with their hands out, not willing to do ANYTHING to help themselves. Many, many others work as hard or harder than we do and like us, they don’t like such a large portion of what we’ve earned given to those who haven’t earned it, but think they deserve it, just by the act of being born, because they breath, eat and defecate they believe they are ENTITLED to what I have to go out and earn. Those are the ones we are pissed off at, not the ones who’ve worked, paid their way, have gotten hurt and can no longer work. Not the ones who’ve volunteered to put their life on the line for our freedoms, but the ones who think the world owes them something because of a relative in their distant past, whom they’ve never met was treated poorly and now, down through the years, their lives are still traumatized because of it.
      No, Michael. We asked for help paying for something that we all obviously enjoy. Help in paying the expenses for something we believe is important. Yes, we compared the ones who wouldn’t help out, with the same comparison I just made in the last paragraph, because we feel, like so many others, that a lot of them are willing to enjoy the fun we have without having to help out. And that’s why we said that a dollar each would have been enough. Hell, actually about 33 cents a person would’ve met our main expenses. Instead, less than 10% of the people paid for the whole. Trust me when I tell you that our country is moving in the same direction.
      And when it gets to the point that less than 50% are paying for the more than 50%, that’s when this administration will have the ruin of our great country that they desire.
      I have no need to go into the actual legality of the using of the cartoons and whatnot that are SENT to us, since the Leprechaun covered it so well prior to me.
      So? What else you got, Mike?

  2. Danny Manger says:

    I always look forward to the next issue of DragonLaffs and stuff from Lethal Leprechaun and have never been disappointed. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

      Memo
      To: Paul B’s kids
      From: Lethal Leprechaun

      Subject: You missed one!

      You forgot to cancel his cable/satellite/ Uverse, unplug the TV and remove the batteries from the remote.
      After all we don’t want him lingering and suffering needlessly now do we?

  4. paul says:

    GREAT ISSUE – AS ALWAYS –BUMMER ON THE TIME FRAME —
    RE: PICS – ANY CHANCE I CAN GET AN 8X10 OF “THE END” ????

    • impishdragon says:

      You’ll have to ask the Jersey Girl Ginny. Seems she has fessed up that those are her pumpkin buns. If you sweet talk her, you might be able to get an autographed copy.

      • paul says:

        HOW ABOUT IT GINNY???? HOW ABOUT A SIGNED COPY ???? PLEASE???

      • Ginny says:

        Before any autographs….did you donate a $1 for the upkeep of Dragon Laffs?

      • lethalleprechaun says:

        Hey don’t forget to ask for one of her prize winning ‘gourds’ too!

      • Ginny says:

        You say you want an autograph along with your picture? Well hell, I am a notary public in the great state of NJ…so, I’ll signed it, notarize it and state that it is a true and accurate copy of my
        rear pumpkins

    • Ginny says:

      Sure Paul, we are all friends….right?

  5. Ginny says:

    Loved your intro into Leprechaun Laughs….but my little green elf…you blew it. You put an E for
    Lethal (fourth word)…and didn’t in the First word and Last Word….and you say we don’t pay attention….lol I so agree with you on RECYLE CONGRESS….election day is Novem ber 4th. Get out and vote, don’t think it’s important…think again and look at the shape this country is in.
    The HOMELESS video was great….made you realize it can happen to any of us! Hey, with Impish’s baby picture…any chance of getting an 8×10 glossy? OMG, you had to use Ben and Jerry’s as an
    intro to your recipes?????? You really did make my knees weak with 3 dessert recipes.
    Matter of fact, they gave in and I did a swan dive in the kitchen. Now, for your “THE END”
    just how the hell did you get a picture of my rear pumpkins??????

    • lethalleprechaun says:

      As to my (apparently multiple) misspellings- HEY! I was finishing that at TWO blessed THIRTY in the morning after submitting 2 papers a lab and taking 2 quizzes in a single day just how well do you think my eyes and brain were functioning at that point? ESPECIALLY in view of the fact that my last Brown Gold IV ended at 6 PM!

      With regard for the Ben & Jerry’s Cooking Header I figured since the entire feature was nothing by weak knee desserts it was appropriate.

      Impish’s baby picture will be available in a variety of sizes on a variety of targets soon.

      As for you’re ‘rear pumpkins’ I think what you SHOULD be asking is how did I get the photo from the NSA?

      • Ginny says:

        I be sorry for picking on you….I forget your wacking schedule. Sure rub it in….my weak knees can’t handle B&J’s and 3 yummy desserts. Will be looking for Impish’s baby pics…either in wallet size or an 8X10 would be nice. Again, I forgot your gov’t connections, should have known better then to fess up that they were my pumpkins!
