Up Next: Weaponized Jokes

Here is a headline, the gravity of which is making my monitor tilt:

Hey, maybe BH was being a little jokey, but um, probably not.

I'm failing to see what the point is of the first linked article.

And the guy from the second one seems a little put-out it's uncool to be a racist these days.

Oh, ok. I'll grant him that Donald Trump may not be racist. He's just doing a damn good imitation of one and using racist sentiment to generate interest in his maybe possible don't know will he won't he run for presidenting.

OK, a writer took a job ...writing.

O.M.G.

the panty-wadding brigade is going fullsteam, isn't it?

The cool thing about panty-wadding is that it leaves your hands free to clutch your pearls.

It's butthurt, pure and simple. Obama is popular, The Daily Show is popular- the synergy is a good one. How could a Republican compete, by getting some Big Hollywood hack?

If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, and looks like a doughy, overprivileged white guy with a bad toupee- it's a racist.

It's also tribalism. Daily Show- bad. Obama- Bad. Us=Good! We winnzors!

I do, however, look forward to Jokenized Weapons.

I started a comment saying the same thing, then gave it up as unwieldy and weird and now we hates BBBB for doing it right, we does!

The comments at BigWhatever always crack me up.

Is everything written for Obama?
Does Obama do anything himself?
Is Obama illiterate?


Good catch, Eric!

I understand the fine talents behind Atlas Shrugged are available.

I had a Glock 19 compact 9mm some years ago. Now, I'm not much of a Glock fan, there's really a lot not to like about them, but there's something about that polymer frame that calls out to your inner artist.

So I went down to the hobby store and got some model airplane paints and a few brushes and essentially painted graffitti all over the damn thing. In bright colors.

It was actually pretty cool. I liked carrying it because I always imagined the look on the faces of the investigators if I had to shoot somebody with it and then tear it down and dispose of the pieces all over three states. Finding a Glock grip panel with a bright orange stylized martian on it would certainly be cause for speculation, n'est ce pas?

Fuzzy dice.

Hmmm. Remind me not to get into a flame war with mikey. And if I do and if it ends badly, look for the little orange Martian.

Big Ho is entirely a sublimated "Why can't I get work in Ho-Town?" orgy of self-pity.

The few who aren't hacks are unsuccessful because they're such awful humanoids they can't network worth a damn.

We should be happy they have this outlet, for the sake of their families, pets & strangers who might become their victims in road rage incidents.

That is my life's motto.

Which, I guess, explains why my life is going so poorly.
