Leprechaun Laughs # 283 for January 28th 2015

Good morning all-

First things first for all you in the Snow Belt or the Northeast please know that due to Historic Blizzard Colbie we are opening our doors to any of you who manage to make it to us regardless of your donor status. Naturally, those of yon who did not choose to donate to help with out operation will be put to work in exchange for your food and shelter while the donors will be free to lounge about and make full use of our public facilities.

The new Readers Appreciation Recreation & Raucous Party Center is moving along and I’m pleased to report the thermal springs area and its attendant facilities are all up and running and will be available for soaking the cold out of your bones.

Hopefully you’ll all have your power, cable and other snow related issues straightened out before the weekend. I’d hate for you all to miss the Super Bowl and the Patriot’s triumph over the Seahawks

Unfortunately Impish will be unable to join you as you know Impish still cannot show his face hereabouts. Now due to his flapping fat yap he’s been forced to move from where he was hiding to a new undisclosed location. I’m given to understand by those responsible for his transport that his’ current whereabouts are far less hospitable and dragon friendly than his previous comfy digs. Maybe that will learn him to keep his teeth together.

<Almost as if cued to Lethal’s phone begins belting out the opening bars of M.C. Hammer’s ‘Can’t Touch This’ repeatedly. Lethal looks at the phone annoyedly and apparently sends the call to Voice Mail. Almost immediately it starts playing “Can’t Touch This’ again. Again Lethal sends it to Voice Mail.>

Sorry about that As I was…..

<Again Lethal’s phone interrupts him with the tune for the third time. Lethal sighs frustratedly.>

“Please excuse me a moment folks, apparently I’m going have to take this. I’m guessing Mr. Ungrateful Whiney Pants wants to complain about his hastily arrange accommodations again. Apparently the fact that his present accommodations are his fault escapes him”

<He viciously stabs at a button on his phone which has begun to ring now yet a fourth time in rapid succession>

WHAT IMPISH?! What in the bloody hell could be so ALMIGHTY important that you have to derail my opening monologue for the issue you ungrateful lizard? YES! I am aware you cannot order take out delivered to you that is one of the reasons you are there! Entire pick up loads of take out will ring alarm bells! Do you want to go back to GITMO? Because if you do…

All right then can I get back to the readers and the issue? What? OH HELLS NO you can’t just come back here, the place is crawling with black bag men from every agency in the Government’s Alphabet Soup hunting for…hang on a sec Impish spotted another one o’ the bloody bastards.”

<Lethal snaps his finger and points at a guy sliding towards the exit as he talks to his shirt cuff rapidly. He is grabbed by 2 CyberLethals before he can make the door and promptly escorted from the room his feet not touch the ground. Lethal calls out to them in a menacing tone.>

“You fecking Feds just won’t learn respect will you? Well I’m tired of this disregard for the Diplomatic Sovereignty of this place! Search him, strip him and take him to Level 6. The Eryl King mentioned this morning that The Wyld Hunt was in need of exercise. You want to chase Impish like a pack of scavenging dogs? Fine. Let’s see how you like being chased mercilessly and then turned into a dog when caught!

Impish? Yeah I’m back. Do you finally understand why you can’t come back and why your best defense is to keep you lips together? GOOD! Now, is there anything else before I get back to these extremely patient people? No Ginny didn’t make it she’s apparently still unable to travel due to the Blizzard that luckily wasn’t.

Huh? Yes I still have that hideaway. Uhh last I heard roughly 8 inches fell, but there are 4 foot drifts why? You want to go hide in the storm?! Why? Warmer than where you are now? Dude you owe people for rescuing your dumb ass and for damages they incurred while doing so. Now I suggest you stop your whining, and get back to working that debt off if you expect to be able to join Diamen’s Super Bowl Party in person.

No, I most certainly did NOT just give it away. Yes I mentioned her but I never said where she was hosting it did i? Thank you for screwing up my attempt at misdirection. NOW GET BACK TO WORK AND DON’T CALL ME THE REST OF THE BUSINESS DAY!”

<Lethal hangs up phone. Looks at it a minute, then fiddles with it a second, smiles and places it in his pocket>

There! All his calls for the rest of the day are being transferred to Brutus the Brutal down in the Complaint Department. Now where the heck was i? Oh the heck with it!

Before for some of you the snow drifts any higher, it gets any colder or you lose power lets get the issue on the road shall we?

So since its been snowing there on and off since Sunday, I might have left a small sign outside of Impish’s human persona’s house in frigid Indiana to get even with him for his little dancing interruption of last week’s issue.  How is it revenge? Well its going to be Sunny and a balmy 75 here today while ol’ Impish I hear might squeak out a blustery 35 degree day

That’s from one of his unreleased works, either “Talk Smack- Get Whacked” or “How The Dragon Got Dented” I’m not sure which.

DL Introspection Header

Last week’s issue had a feature on Kyle Bush and the rather comically contentious case of ‘He-said’-‘She-said’ going on with his ex-girlfriend who may or may not be some sort of security consulting reputation smearing assassin for hire. Well wanting to keep you (and Impish who needs all the protection from himself he can possibly get) safe, here are some signs your girlfriend just might be an assassin.

The Top 5 Signs Your Significant Other is an Assassin

  1. What other explanation could there be for her blood-stained clothes every month?
  2. Halloween costume: ninja. Formal wear: ninja. Casual Fridays: ninja.
  3. Every time you come back home, she’s more surprised than the dog.
  4. The “vibrator” she keeps in her nightstand has a laser sight and a trigger.

And the Number One Sign Your Significant Other is an Assassin…

  1. To “save vet bills,” she put down Fluffy herself.

Seems that this braying jackass libatard who doesn’t support out troops {1] nor has never spent a single minute in the military has decided he is an expert on all things military, in particular the Scout-Sniper. He recently tweeted the following in response the the social exchange that the move ‘American Sniper’ has generated:

image

I’d like that request that every SWAT, HRT, QRT, NEST and any other alphabet soup rapid response tactical team which employs snipers (the vast majority of which are ex-military) to protect the civilian populace take note of this asshat’s PoV and respect it by not  taking any shot which might potentially save Mr. Moore’s life. After all since he obviously despises you all so much he’d hardly want to owe his life to your expertise and be beholding to a coward now would he?

Mr. Moore I’d like to apologize for the injustice I did you a moment ago when I awarded you an Assholie. Obviously you’ve been deserving of such a reward for a long time and indeed gone above and beyond to gain the recognition as one. Please allow me to rectify the situation:

5 things to know for the Super Bowl

(CNN)Let the hype begin!

After four months of exciting gridiron action, America (and the world) has its Super Bowl combatants.

The Seattle Seahawks will face off against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX on February 1 in Glendale, Arizona.

Whether you’re a hardcore NFL fan or just a wannabe watching the game for the halftime show and commercials, here are 5 things you need to know for the Super Bowl:

No. 1 vs. No. 1

    This will only be the 11th time that the No. 1 team from the NFC will play the No. 1 team from AFC. And this matchup of No. 1 seeds is happening for the second year in a row. Usually one of the top teams stubs its toe in the playoffs on the way to Super Bowl glory.

    Let’s do it again

    Winning the big prize twice is just plain hard to do. Just ask Barack Obama. But if the Seahawks succeed in winning another championship in two weeks, they will be the first repeat NFL champs in a decade. No team has done that since … the New England Patriots in 2005. (Not gonna happen now either if the Patriots got any thing to say about this!)

    Making history, together

    Speaking of the Pats, the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady era in New England has been nothing short of phenomenal. The coach-QB combo has produced three Super Bowl wins, 12 division championships and a record of 180-55 together. But there’s more history to be made. Belichick — now the winningest coach in NFL postseason history with 21 wins — will become only the second coach to appear in six Super Bowls, while Brady will become the only quarterback to play in six Super Bowls.

    Roman holiday

    After this year’s title tilt, the NFL will break with tradition (for one year) and ditch using Roman numerals in the Super Bowl name. The 2016 version of the championship game — the 50th, to be played in the San Francisco 49ers’ Levi’s Stadium — will simply be known as Super Bowl 50. The Roman numerals are set to return in 2017 for Super Bowl LI.

    Music, music, music

    Some folks (OK, lots of folks), don’t care about the game at all. They’ll be watching to see who’s performing at halftime. After many years of halftime shows featuring a musical mashup of singers and groups (up until the Justin Timberlake-Janet Jackson fiasco), the NFL seems to have found a winner with shows focused on a single artist. Think of the great Super Bowl halftime shows put on by Prince, Bruce Springsteen and Beyonce. And Bruno Mars simply set the stage on fire last year. This year get ready to “roar” with Katy Perry, and she’s bringing in Lenny Kravitz for backup. Idina Menzel (best known to little girls everywhere as Queen Elsa) will sing the national anthem.

    Oh, and for those keeping up with such things (for entertainment purposes only, of course), the early Las Vegas line on the Super Bowl has Seattle as a slight favorite over New England.

    All right huddle up and pay attention now! The Super Bowl comes only once a year but the bitter humiliation of losing lasts all year long. Think I’m kidding? Ask Impish (if you can find him) both his teams lost their shot at the Super Bowl this year.

    Now nearly as critical to a successful Super Bowl Game Day experience as the spread of your big screen and the points spread is the spread you lay out for your guests. You don’t want to be ‘that just chips & dip guy’ or the ‘he ordered pizza before the Coin Toss and we finally got it cold in time for the end of the 3rd Quarter after the beer ran out guy’. No, you want to be the ‘who cares if they didn’t cover the spread, you should have seen the spread that covered the table! guy.” Well listen up because Ol’ Coach Lethal going to show you a few winning moves sure to please

    Crescent Enchilada-Stuffed Sandwiches

    image

    • prep time 15 min
    • total time 40 min
    • ingredients 4
    • servings 6

     

     

     

    Ingredients

    1 can (12 oz) Pillsbury™ Grands ®! Big & Flaky crescent dinner rolls
    2 cups shredded cooked chicken
    1/2 cup Old El Paso™ red enchilada sauce (from 10-oz can)
    1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend (4 oz)

    Directions

    1 Heat oven to 375°F. Separate dough into 4 rectangles. Onto ungreased cookie sheet, place 2 rectangles, short ends together, forming 14×5-inch rectangle. Firmly press perforations and center seam to seal.
    2 In medium bowl, mix chicken and sauce. Spoon chicken mixture lengthwise in 4-inch strip down center of dough to within 1/4 inch of edges. Top with cheese. Press remaining 2 rectangles to 7×5 inches, firmly pressing perforations to seal. Place each rectangle over cheese, pinching center seam to seal.
    3 Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cut into slices. Serve warm.

    Take it from me, its 6 servings only if you’re a dainty size 0 salad nibbler. Figure on 3 to 4 serving depending how much other stuff you’re serving. To make this real quick by the frozen precooked chicken strips in the bag. Let them thaw_ use the water in the sink trick to speed things up if you need to, the pile a couple up and fine chop them. BOOM! Instant shredded chicken.

    Can’t find Enchilada sauce or like Molly not like the stuff from the grocery store (she’s such a Mexican food snob!)? No problem, call an audible by using Taco sauce or Picante. No Picante? Toss a jar of Salsa in the blender give it 3 or 4 fast pluses and BOOM! you got Picante my friend.

    By the way- this is a great way to make hot sandwiches too, Ham & American, Roast Beef and (Horseradish or Pepper jack) Cheddar, Turkey & Munster, Pastrami Round & Provolone. Get wild, fry up some 80% lean ground beef with some onions and mushrooms then drain it well. Add a pouch of real bacon bits and stuff the dough with that and some Swiss for a Bacon Mushroom Swiss Burger take.

    Whatever I do with this recipe I assemble them then slide them on to disposable tin foil trays and wrap in plastic wrap ahead of time and store them in my fridge. This way I can pull them out and use as the need arises.

    Easy Crescent Taco Bake

    Refrigerated crescent dinner rolls unite as a quick crust to hold ground beef, cheese, salsa and seasoning in this easy-to-assemble great for parties or main dish entree.

    image

    • prep time 25 min
    • total time 50 min
    • ingredients 5
    • servings 6

    Ingredients

    1 can (8 oz)  refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
    1lb. lean (at least 80%) ground beef
    3/4 cup Thick ‘n Chunky salsa (heat to your taste)
    2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix (from 1-oz package) or to taste
    1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Unroll dough; separate into 8 triangles. Place in ungreased 9-inch square pan or 10-inch pie plate; press over bottom and up sides to form crust.

  • 2 In 10-inch skillet, cook beef over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in salsa and taco seasoning mix; simmer 5 minutes. Spoon meat mixture in crust-lined pan; sprinkle with cheese.

  • 3 Bake 14 to 17 minutes or until crust is deep golden brown and cheese is melted. Served topped with lettuce and tomato, if desired.

    If you like me I’m sure you can already see all kinds of add ins & options- green onions, corn, beans (black, pinto, or chili- rinsed and drained well). Doing this with precooked shredded chicken in place of the ground beef.

    Cheddar Corn Dog Minis

    image

    Prep 15 min.

    Total 35 min.

    Servings: 6

    Bake: 15 min.  Cool: 5 min.

     

    What You’ll Need

    1 box (8.5 ounces) corn muffin mix
    1 egg
    1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Condensed Cheddar Cheese Soup
    4 each hot dogs, cut crosswise in thirds

    How to Make It

    • 1 Heat the oven to 400°F.  Lightly grease 12 (2 1/2-inch) muffin-pan cups.
    • 2 Stir the corn muffin mix, egg and soup in a medium bowl.  Spoon about 3 tablespoons batter into each muffin-pan cup.  Top each with 1 piece hot dog, placed lengthwise.
    • 3 Bake for 15 minutes or until the minis are golden brown.  Let the minis cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes.  Remove the minis from the pan.

    I use Hebrew Nationals, Nathans or Turkey hot dogs when I do this because they all have a lot less grease and nobody likes a greasy corn dog. I can see all kinds of ways to adult these up for Super Bowl munchies from kicking up the corn muffin batter to using pieces of Georgia Red Hots in place of the hot dogs (simmer them first) Same would hold for Hillshire Farms Lil’ Smokies- brown them or simmer them a bit first to get rid of some of the fat. Me? I’ve got a Pork & Venison Smoked sausage in my fridge ear marked for these babies after it gets some quality time with my grill. Maybe your tastes run to  putting them on a plate and covering them with Chili &/or Queso. In any event you want to double the recipe if you’re having friends over for sure!

    Hearty Chicken & Vegetable Chowder

    Going the cheese, veggies and crackers platter route because the game hating wives are in charge of the grub? Here’s a health soup that won’t feel like your being punished or have the wives complaining about the spread around you middles.

  • image

      Prep 15 min.

    Total 1 hr.

    Serves 6

    Servings: about 1 cup each

    Cook: 45 min.

    What You’ll Need

    1 tablespoon canola oil
    1 large onion, minced (about 1 cup)
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Condensed Cream of Chicken or Mushroom Soup
    1 cup non fat milk
    1 cup water
    2 medium red potatoes, diced (about 2 cups)
    1 large zucchini, diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
    1 cup frozen whole kernel corn
    2 cups diced cooked chicken
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

    How to Make It

    • 1 Heat the oil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat.  Add the onion and garlic and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    • 2 Stir in the soup, milk and water and heat to a boil.  Stir in the potatoes, zucchini and corn.  Reduce the heat to medium-low.  Cook for 35 minutes or until the potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally.
    • 3 Stir in the chicken and parsley and cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling.

    Exact mixture of veg is up to you, don’t have zucchini? Use frozen green beans then or use whatever you like for a combination. In my house this often gets done with the end of a ham and the cream of mushroom soup, mushrooms potatoes peas and carrots and it s wipe you bowl with the last of your crusty roll good!

    If you have a ham bone, or the chicken is from a rotisserie chicken include some of the larger bones during the simmer time to really kick up the flavor. Just remove with tongs before finishing the soup.

    Cheesy Chicken & Potato Casserole

    1/4 teaspoon salt
    3 cups shredded cooked chicken
    4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

  • Questions that Haunt Me

    SO when Ginny isn’t busy drinking straight from the bottle (see last weeks issue for explanation), sticking her tongue in the bottle to get the last drop, using her tongue to get her husband up…and out of the house (see last weeks comments for explanation of these two) or sticking it in Impish’s ear (neither Impish or Ginny will comment on this one so don’t bother asking them) she likes to send me questions which perplex her. Nice guy that I am I try to help her with these difficult questions. To wit:

     

  • If you have sex with a prostitute against her will, is it considered rape or shoplifting?

    Rape. Shoplifting is when you manage to get out of the room before her w/o paying her

  • How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?

    One is a subset of the other. both are murder, but assassination is specifically aimed at a prominent person, and most times is making some sort of political statement when it’s carried out.
    However, the term “assassinated” is usually used with the killing of people of public notoriety or fame while murdered is reserved for private people, unknown to the public.

    Why do you have to “put your two cents in”… But it’s only a “penny
    for your thoughts”?  Where’s that extra penny going to?

    Considered opinions require more time and effort than simple random thoughts being shared on a whim hence the higher price.

  • Once you’re in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?

    No that’s hell- especially if you were buried in a Leisure or Disco suit in the 80’s.

    In Heaven you have wings so you get the Heavenly Uniform- robes that not only accommodate wings but unlike your burial clothes never make you butt look big (Yes Impish, even if it really IS that big) nor are they slit up the back either.

  • What disease did cured ham actually have?

    Generally something fatal like severe cranial trauma, a significant cardiac event, or acute hypovolemic shock due to exsanguination.

    The ham is cured because its no longer suffering from these issues and has moved on to a better place- a smoke house generally.

    How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

  • Men on the moon had government funding and nearly unlimited resources so its not a surprise it happened first. Besides we were     way ahead of the Russians in the wheeled luggage race…and still are

    If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?

    Yes because he is having his day in court where as it is the court that is hearing his case

    Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?

    Because P.T. Barnum was 100% right.

    Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They’re going to see you naked anyway.

    Because he’s busy groping his nurse, putting his hands and stethoscope in ice water before touching you, booking a Tee time, padding his bill to your insurance company or can’t handle seeing you nude all at once w/o strong drink (which come to think of it he might well be having a shot of prior to your exam).

  • Why is “bra” singular and “panties” plural?

    Panties can be singular or plural depending on how you use it in a sentence.
    Examples : Singular : The panties are pink and lime green. Plural: All of these panties still have tags on them.

    Can a hearse carrying a corpse drive in the carpool lane ?

    ‘Carpool’ suggests that the people in the car would have otherwise taken their own cars, but to cut down on traffic and save fuel, they carpool. The lanes are designed to give people an incentive to give up the luxury of having their own cars, and rewarding them when they do with a faster-moving lane.
    I would say that a corpse wouldn’t have taken his own car had it not been for the hearse. The highway patrol has to be able to count heads as well, so in a normal corpse-in-a-hearse situation, his head would not be visible. That also goes for the pregnant woman. No one can see the baby’s head, so he doesn’t count.

    If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

    Baby corn, veggies or soy beans. Now its my turn-Vegetarians eat vegetables, so what do humanitarians eat?

  • oh-there-is-just-a-whole-bucket-of-nope-here-with-your-name-on-it-40-photos-36

    If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

    Yes in the sense that both are the indirect product of the sources you mentioned in a cause/effect manner. Electricity is actually the quantifiable effect resulting from the movement of electrons where as morality is the quantifiable response to the actions/behavior/poor choices of morons

  • Why do they call it an asteroid when it’s outside the hemisphere, but call it a hemorrhoid when it’s in your butt?

  • Short answer- its all Greek to me. Aster is the Greek prefix for star, and -oid, it means an object, but also, a bad imitation, so an object badly imitating a star (aster).
    Seeing an asteroid in space is because it reflects the suns light, making it a moving reflective surface, like the moon. In ancient times, all things that glowed in the sky were stars, or asters of some kind. So it’s because it’s a glowing object like a star that moves in the sky.
    Hemo is also Greek, meaning or referring to blood or tissue, like hemoglobin. Oid, again, is object, so it’s an object with blood.
    What is it about Greeks and butts anyway?

    Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog’s face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?

    Ever notice your breath? You dog doesn’t have the linguistic capability of saying ‘Eww Dude! Take a mint or something butt breath!”

  • Do you ever wonder why you gave me your e-mail address in the first place?

    Nope.I do however marvel think that Impish was dumb enough to think he could get away with giving it to you without there being retribution!

  • Rice University student covers dorm room floor with 13,000 plastic balls

    HOUSTON – When U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials learned that Rice University senior David Nichol had imported 26 fairly large boxes containing 13,000 plastic colored balls from China, they decided to investigate the contents due to the sheer bizarreness of the order.
    “There are a lot of things about importing I didn’t know that I do now – about how you need to fill out certain forms and how you need to pick them up from (the Houston) ship channel,” Nichol said.
    “I actually didn’t pick them up from the Port of Houston,” he said. “They were taken to (U.S.) Customs and Border Protection to be tested to make sure they were certified balls and not something else. I’m sure it was kind of sketchy to have 13,000 plastic balls shipped to Texas.”

    Nichol’s excuse was pretty straightforward: He wanted to create a ball pit in his dorm room at Rice.
    It wasn’t a childhood dream, nor does he have any vivid memory of ever being in a ball pit at Chuck E. Cheese.
    What did inspire the college student with a limited budget to spend $500 on balls was an “xkcd” webcomic by former NASA roboticist Randall Munroe. Munroe, who has created a cult following for the comic, given a TED talk and appeared in numerous news media, including the now-shuttered “Colbert Report,” appealed to Nichol through his 2006 strip “Grownups.”

    Source and remainder of article @ Click2Houston.com

    So let’s be clear- according to the article (and everything else I have been able to view on this topic) David Nichols broke no laws though admittedly he needed to do some extra paperwork (having shipped internationally before I can tell you the paper work is confusing redundant and basically a Gordian knot of red tape which IMO is designed to trip you up and give the government a reason to search your incoming shipment). Said paper work could have simply been taken care the warehouse in the Port of Houston provided Nichol’s brought the correct paper work with him. Custom & Boarder Patrols SOLE reason behind impounding the shipment was they found the order ‘bizarre’ for a college student. In other words they were being nosey because their interests were piqued and used that as justification to invade a persons privacy.

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.

      No I didn’t make it this week with the Blizzzard of 2015. We were spared and only got about 6
      inches, but still a pain in the butt. Great issues and further body blocks for Impish.
