knox said..."Eurotard": officially my new favorite slur.
Yup.AND, the right is officially intellectually bankrupt.
Eli Blake, thankfully we have Obama to bail us out.
Eurotard...You-are-a-retard said by a French speaker. This may offend Sen.John Kerry, and he is part of the 60 votes needed to ratify a sale of Wisconsin back to the French Canadians.
I buy at Low Pirce NoW! I Levle With the Best! EVY FuCkin Day!WKLO RULZ!
OTTrooper, I know you'll be reading this. I'm watchng an ol' favorite:"She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" am at Sudros wells and Trooper Smth (aka BG Rome Clay) has just been buried.a classic
When I first read the heading, I thought it said "Euroturd". But "Eurotard" is bad enough, with "tard" now being a suffix meaning "retard".
I think I'll stick with my Freedomtard, thank you very much.
Yup.AND, the right is officially intellectually bankrupt.Well, laughing is now forbidden. What's next, dancing?Lighten up, you humorless prude.
I have no words. Trooper, I'm sending you my dry cleaning bill.
Sofa King:What's mutually exclusive about laughing and pointing out the intellectual bankruptcy of that sentiment?Learn to walk and chew gum, you incompetent boob. And if you're unable to get over that low bar, at least learn that others can.
What's mutually exclusive about laughing and pointing out the intellectual bankruptcy of that sentiment?What sentiment? That something is funny? You're asking what's mutually exclusive about laughing at something and pointing out that it's not funny?
What is intellectually bankrupt about laughing, Audry?And your second paragraph is rather confusing. It seems to agree with Sofa King...but no. Reinaldo Arenas wrote in Antes que anochezca (Before Night Falls) that tyrannies are self-important, boring, and completely devoid of humor. It is not simply coincidence that those who dream of tyranny are also dull, humorless and self-important.
Don't like the -tard thing. I also didn't like Obama's Special Olympics slur. It seems to me that if people are to be used as an example of stupidity or incompetence, less vulnerable people can be picked out.
Tolstoytard never really went anywhere. Chétard is still available.
The airforce one fly over jumbotard.
EKC,Nothing's intellectually bankrupt about mere laughter, per se. The right's adoption of the slur "Eurotard" is a different story.Sofa, "What sentiment?"Scroll up. Stop when you reach the topic line or the post that Eli responded to. Do have fun dueling with that strawman, though.
Hiptard is not available, nor does it have the European flair.
Can you fit a douchebag into a Eurotard? Because there sure are a lot of douchebaggers around here.
Audrey wrote: "The right's adoption of the slur "Eurotard" is a different story."Audrey, I know it is common for political animals to think in absolutes, but you do realize (I hope) that Trooper York really does sell clothes, Eurotard really is a "dance and active wear manufacturer" and knox really is an individual -- not a meme.
It sounds to me like some kind of futuristic one-piece stretchy garment you could buy at Capezio. Unisex, transnational.
McCoy: Darn it, Jim, I'm a doctor, not a Eurotard.
Thankfully we only have to deal with one variety, imagine the confusion.. Franctard, Liratard, Marktar, pesetatard, guildertard
Eurotard is actually a brand of womens, ahem, under accessories. Trooper York did a blog on this. They are trying to compete with Spanx. I much prefer the term Euroturd. It is similar to Libturd and is more appropriate.
Please check the link before offering your knee-jerk response. You might see why this is so funny, then again, maybe not. Trooper, you said something over there that's interesting to me. Since Spanx sell so well even in small sizes do you keep them stocked for maximum sales? My favorite local aquarium shop almost never has neon tetras. They get them in and they sell immediately because they're the most popular with little kids. This makes me ask why they don't buy huge quantities but the store acts like they're beholden to a single supplier. If it were me, I'd find multiple suppliers so they're always in stock. That, or breed them myself.
Of course I am waiting for Napolitanotard or turd.
Audrey II So nice to have a new libtard scold to set us straight. I would certainly hate to do anything politically incorrect.
Chip Ahoy - I don't think Eurotards breed in captivity. And stop being so insensitive, dammit!
"What sentiment?"Scroll up. Stop when you reach the topic line or the post that Eli responded to. Do have fun dueling with that strawman, though.Sanctimonious and ill-informed! A winning combination! You and Eli make quite a couple.
Chip Ahoy : If it were me, I'd find multiple suppliers so they're always in stock. That, or breed them myself.An elegant solution, but I don't think it will work with undergarments.
I knew I should have put in a paragraph break.
So Eli Blake is a Eurotard. Fascinating - but not unexpected.
PlustardFor the gal that's largely late and now expectant.
Methtard-For the gal that's green and wants to keep her gases to herself.
And let's not forget the dearly missed Fake Steve (of Steve Jobs' Secret Diary fame) who gifted the language with: • Frigtard (v. your choice)• Microtard (v. Steve Ballmer)• Yelptard (v. any Yelper)
"madawaskan said... Methtard- For the gal that's green and wants to keep her gases to herself."Oh dear. Do you know what you've just done?On another note, I'm surprised no one has said Obamatard(s).
Chip Ahoy - Shipping fish is prohibitively expensive. You can't just ship Neon Tetras because the cost would far outweigh any returns. That's why pet stores tend to stick with just the one supplier unless they're dealing with high margin, exotic types.
Somewhat unsurprisingly, my visit to both the Spanx and Eurotard websites confirmed that neither produces an undergarment intended to attractively shape and smooth the cankle.
It's only a matter of time before someone plays the race tard.
Hey, professor, I was born in July, but I'm not a Leo! *sigh*Fidel Castro is a Leotard, among other tard-ish things.
Speaking of leotard....
July is a Cancer, at least July 8th is. Does that make me a Cancotard?
As someone noted on Twitter, Insty linked to this blog post - not Trooper's. Aww. Troop should have gotten that link (and I'm sure Reynolds didn't mean to deprive him)...but maybe it will call attention to his blog, anyway. Belatedly...very funny how a few jumped on this as a right wing thing. LOL.
OK, if retard is not an insult, why can't it be used in polite conversation anymore? I am truly confused.
Demotard.Demotardic.Demotardocracy.Demotardoplasty. (As in, "Arlen Spector had a Demotardoplasty.")
Hey, August is for Leo, too. I am Leotard. Hear me roar!
Thank you so much for the link Professor. It really is hilarious that Eli doesn't get it. But not surprising.
What is really even more funny about shape wear is that some brands put a "pee-hole" in it so woman don't have to take it off to urinate. Now no one in their right mind would do that but it is pretty amusing that they include this as a feature and not a bug. What the hell are they thinking?
What the hell are they thinking?Cameltoe, I guess.
LOL, chickenlittle. :)
some brands put a "pee-hole" in it so woman don't have to take it off to urinate. Those would be called "peetards".
*waves @ Darcy*
chickenlittle-Peetard...LOL!It's soooooo frwanch.
Eura-hoserFor the peeps that don't get these jokes.
I know chickenlittle. That is exactly what I call them when I tell the girls that they don't want to be hoist on their own peetard.Then they always get the Spanx microfiber high waisted smoother.
Eura-hoser Eura-fun one too! :-)
LOL! What happens when you comment before going to the link: I wrote sounds like some futuristic one-piece stretchy garment thinking it had started out as a politically-incorrect insult.
In Germany they are called "Leiderhoser".
No,no,no! Not pink. Pot of Gold!
