"Eurotard": officially my new favorite slur.

IN THE COMMENTS: Some inapt ravings from link nonclickers. To them, I say, if you were born in July, you are a Leotard.

Yup.

AND, the right is officially intellectually bankrupt.

Eli Blake, thankfully we have Obama to bail us out.

traditionalguy said...

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.

Trooper,

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

Bruce Hayden said...

When I first read the heading, I thought it said "Euroturd". But "Eurotard" is bad enough, with "tard" now being a suffix meaning "retard".

Maguro said...

I think I'll stick with my Freedomtard, thank you very much.

Sofa King said...

Yup.

AND, the right is officially intellectually bankrupt.

Well, laughing is now forbidden. What's next, dancing?

Lighten up, you humorless prude.

ElcubanitoKC said...

I have no words. Trooper, I'm sending you my dry cleaning bill.

Audrey II said...

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.

Sofa King said...

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?

ElcubanitoKC said...

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.

Laura(southernxyl) said...

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.

Lem said...

Homeotard ;)

Tolstoytard never really went anywhere. Ch├ętard is still available.

Squirreltard.

Still available.

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.

Henry said...

Hiptard is not available, nor does it have the European flair.

Palladian said...

Can you fit a douchebag into a Eurotard? Because there sure are a lot of douchebaggers around here.

amba said...

It sounds to me like some kind of futuristic one-piece stretchy garment you could buy at Capezio. Unisex, transnational.

Henry said...

McCoy: Darn it, Jim, I'm a doctor, not a Eurotard.

SteveR said...

Thankfully we only have to deal with one variety, imagine the confusion.. Franctard, Liratard, Marktar, pesetatard, guildertard

Peter V. Bella said...

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.

Chip Ahoy said...

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.

Peter V. Bella said...

Of course I am waiting for Napolitanotard or turd.

Buford Gooch said...

Audrey II

So nice to have a new libtard scold to set us straight. I would certainly hate to do anything politically incorrect.

Maguro said...

Chip Ahoy - I don't think Eurotards breed in captivity. And stop being so insensitive, dammit!

Sofa King said...

"What sentiment?"

Sanctimonious and ill-informed! A winning combination! You and Eli make quite a couple.

Jason (the commenter) said...

An elegant solution, but I don't think it will work with undergarments.

Chip Ahoy said...

I knew I should have put in a paragraph break.

rcocean said...

So Eli Blake is a Eurotard. Fascinating - but not unexpected.

madawaskan said...

PlustardFor the gal that's largely late and now expectant.

madawaskan said...

Methtard-

For the gal that's green and wants to keep her gases to herself.

V.B. said...

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)

Methadras said...

"madawaskan said...

Oh dear. Do you know what you've just done?

On another note, I'm surprised no one has said Obamatard(s).

Jennifer said...

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.

Bissage said...

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.

Paul Zrimsek said...

It's only a matter of time before someone plays the race tard.

ElcubanitoKC said...

Hey, professor, I was born in July, but I'm not a Leo! *sigh*
Fidel Castro is a Leotard, among other tard-ish things.

MadisonMan said...

Speaking of leotard....

paul a'barge said...

July is a Cancer, at least July 8th is. Does that make me a Cancotard?

Darcy said...

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.

ElcubanitoKC said...

OK, if retard is not an insult, why can't it be used in polite conversation anymore? I am truly confused.

Scott said...

Demotard.

Demotardic.

Demotardocracy.

Demotardoplasty. (As in, "Arlen Spector had a Demotardoplasty.")

John Lynch said...

Hey, August is for Leo, too. I am Leotard. Hear me roar!

Trooper York said...

Thank you so much for the link Professor.

It really is hilarious that Eli doesn't get it. But not surprising.

DIY petards

Trooper York said...

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?

chickenlittle said...

What the hell are they thinking?

Cameltoe, I guess.

Darcy said...

LOL, chickenlittle. :)

chickenlittle said...

some brands put a "pee-hole" in it so woman don't have to take it off to urinate.

Those would be called "peetards".

chickenlittle said...

*waves @ Darcy*

madawaskan said...

chickenlittle-


Peetard...

LOL!

It's soooooo frwanch.

madawaskan said...

Eura-hoser

For the peeps that don't get these jokes.

Trooper York said...

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.

chickenlittle said...

Eura-hoser
Eura-fun one too! :-)

amba said...

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.

NKVD said...

In Germany they are called "Leiderhoser".

Pink!

No,no,no! Not pink.
