"WI Supreme Court validates Walker union law — now will Quinn pay up on Bears-Packers bet?"

"[I]t's time to put some pressure on Illinois' hapless governor, Pat Quinn."

Here's some pressure on Quinn from last April:
Quinn was scheduled to fulfill the bet on Feb. 21 at Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, a food bank in Milwaukee. But he canceled because Democrats and Republicans in Wisconsin were at each other's throats at the time. Plus, Walker was trying to steal Illinois jobs....

I asked Walker's office if they'd like to publicly condemn Quinn for his foot-dragging and perhaps throw him under the Packers team bus. They didn't seem too upset...

There's one other bet that hasn't been satisfied yet. We're still waiting for the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, the city we vanquished in the Super Bowl on Feb. 6, to lend us the Renoir painting, "Bathers With Crab," as they promised. We want our "lounging, fleshy females," as our art critic described it.
We want our lounging fleshy females...



... and our fleshy governor from the south. In a soup kitchen. Pronto!

I wish I had the skills to photoshop those 2 images together.

The only thing worse than a Bears fan, is a Giants fan.

Just sayin.

As as Steelers fan I hope you get your case of the 'Crabs' as soon as possible.

The women in that painting would be downright thin in Wisconsin.

Please tell me where I can catch lounging fleshy women in repose? I love paintings or photos like that.

Almost quaint in their lack of pretense.

Is Meade out filming the wailing and gnashing of teeth? That was an epic beat down of Judge Sumi.

I've still got the PACKERS-dabears game on the DVR. I may have to watch it again.

BURAAH!

Actually, the women in that painting aren't really all that fleshy.

Fleshy connotes just a bit of superfluous padding. Those ladies have none, but they're not thin (thankfully), either.

PS ironrails would be happy to know every one of those bathers is almost certainly full-flavored.

Best to avoid bathers with crabs.

You know, I'd rather have a big enlargement of the photo of the priest with the pizza on my wall than a Renoir...

My husband's take is that men in Wisconsin want a woman who appreciates beer, cheese and brats. It's hard to do that and be skinny at the same time.

Plus it gets too cold here to stay thin. You need that little bit of insulation for winter, otherwise your heating bills are too high.

Fleshy females! It's a major Wisconsin product. We know flesh.

Something cannot be stolen from you if it does not belong to you. That one sentence perfectly defines why everyone is fleeing the state.

BTW, that painting is hideous.
