Oh my.

Afraid the coffee remix video was too subtle?

traditionalguy said...

Its TCU Purple just in time for tonight's game on ESPN!

That was thoughtful of all you Red crested badger lovers.

Gary Patterson will not run up the score. It's just not done in Texas.

Ralph L said...

I would not want to run into that plant in a dark alley.

Ann is giving George Lucas more lousy ideas for changes to make to the original Star Wars movies. I'm sure he'd replace the sand pit monster with this atrocious specimen in a heartbeat. He just can't stop shitting all over the saga!

Alex said...

Looks like a vagina. Then again don't all flowers look like the vag?

Unless Gary is playing BYU, you meant to say, Trad'guy.

Hit by stray coffee grounds aimed at the petunias.

Coketown said...

If this flower resembles a vagina then I've made the correct choice in life.

traditionalguy said...

Quayle...That's true. The Texas teams respect for other teams is only for other Texas teams which reciprocate in the Geneva, Texas convention.

But they held back on embarrassing the Badgers last January.

Seriously, the rankings in the polls for a non-BCS school to get a BCS bowl game made running up a score or two necessary last year.

Besides, Andy Dalton was so focused that it was hard to get him to sit down.

We didn't loose power due to Irene but we did loose the intertubes.

I hate to agree with Alex, but, since she's been married to the Ultimate Metrosexual, I was going to ask if it was Michelle's twat.

Quayle said...

What's funny Trad'guy is how BYU didn't notice how pissed Patterson was getting that BYU was (a) beating them routinely, (b) packing his stadium with Mormons at his home games, and (c) showing little or no respect.

I heard he read the riot act to the Alumni Association about home games. Perhaps you can confirm.

Then he put BYU helmets on the training dummies and pinned their season directly on the BYU game two years ago.

BYU coasted into Fort Worth, having handled TCU for the previous few years, and hit an absolute buzz saw.

Fortunately (which I didn't realize at the beginning of the evening, but realized once I saw the score), I had committed to take my wife to the Neal Diamond concert, so I wasn't at the blood bath.

Then BYU got ripped again last year by TCU in Provo.

This year at Cowboys stadium should be interesting with Dalton gone.

BYU is at Ol' Miss this weekend, then in Austin next, then hosts Utah (Pac 12 now.)

We'll see under what cloud BYU comes to Dallas: awesome, middling, or crappy.

Michelle's looks more like this. Believe me. I've seen it, and nearly lost my arm.

There's a Lutheran church in San Francisco that is completely purple where they worship the goddess Sofia, also called the Universal womb. Here's a picture of it:

Alex said...

Don't dispute the power of pussy.

Carol_Herman said...

Nope. I wouldn't have guessed we were looking straight down into a flower.

I'd have been thrown off by the vanilla beans. That's not how they grow.

Carol_Herman said...

You want twats, coketown? I've heard Sandra Bernhard say her lips were the original big lips ... when she wondered why Angelina Jolie went and got hers pumped up.

Imagine having needles put in your lips every 6 months.

So they could look like swollen twats.

Coketown said...

@Carol: That is a fascinating piece of trivia. But I don't want twats! Especially not after what you've just told me.

No need to add anything to that.

AP:

In a highly unusual maneuver, President Obama’s 30 minute flight to the Presidential mountain retreat at Camp David this afternoon was diverted to an undisclosed landing near Frederick, Maryland and a motorcade assembled to drive him to the nearby site. White House press secretary Jay Carney tells ABC News a “bad weather call” was made before the President and his younger daughter Sasha even boarded the aircraft.
Carney says they have now arrived safely at Camp David. It remains unexplained why the President would be allowed to board Marine One knowing that the landing site on the mountain was experiencing weather making a landing difficult.


Had nothing to do with terrorists fears, right?

I nearly dropped my margarita when I clicked that link. Michelle is a trip, isn't she. She grew up a block from where my parents lived as I was growing up. Fortunately, I had left for college before she was born.

Vicki does sirens (video).

Chase said...

Niiiice!!!



Now I'm going to put on my smoking jacket and Brut, close the curtains, put on some Frank and see if the little lady gets the hint . . . .

rhhardin said...

High speed rail music.

rhhardin said...

Chinese music that seems to involve flowers and women involved with flowers.

The plot line is not clear.

Thai music has a lesson a guy can draw from the video.

Sorin said...

"So they could look like swollen twats".
Carol lays another gem.

ndspinelli said...

Carol Ditzy" Herman knows swollen twats, after she takes on the 3rd fleet in a 20 hour train..it's swollen for 5 days. Then on to the next fleet. She's a trooper and a patriot.

Here is a video of a Hang Glider pilot flying at my home site here in Sylmar, CA. last Saturday. Although it looks very uneventful, he nearly buys the farm here. As he attempts to fly close under a cloud, he becomes victim of "cloud suck", a phenomenon where the lift under a cloud is so strong that it sucks you right up into it where you can't stop it, and you can't see anything. He can't even see his flight instrument to get any bearings and can't tell up from down. You can't tell from the camera, since it's attached to the tail of the glider, but he completely loses control. When the G- forces get too strong he throws his reserve parachute, which thankfully works perfectly and brings him down with only minor injuries.

He has not yet recovered the glider or his electronics. The only thing he could bring out of the mountains was the camera. For a HG pilot it's very spooky, but it may not translate for most.

I'm going flying tomorrow, but the forecast is for clear skies, 90 deg. I love you guys.

Surely we now have enough to convict him as an enemy of the people and send him to Siberia with nothing more than a change of clothes and a Super 8 camera.

My wife and I drove 9 hours with four kids and two puppies to spend the weekend in tropical storm Lee. It is my uncle's 85th birthday, so we really wanted to come. But it might rain a bit this holiday.

What a lovely photograph though! One of my many favorites of yours.

On my screen, at the top of this post, with the Althouse masthead and your photo alongside your profile photo, it just looks perfect. It would make a great screenshot for a time capsule. It is visual blog perfection 2011. And you a law professor, with an art degree. Well done, Ann.

Carol goes on and on about twats. I may have to join Titus now.

Tits! Clouds!


Jesus. Can't someone stop her before she shits all over everything we hold dear?

Tits. Tits and clouds. Puffy tits and puffy clouds. Puffy.

Puffy. Like Carol's brain. Swollen. Like milk sodden tits. And rain swollen clouds.

where's the Green and Gold cafe? I need to celebrate Baylor's win over the Rose Bowl champs. Wow!

very classy of Patterson to not run up the score on us.

RG3 for Heisman.

Description of a glider pilot almost having an accident or Carol Herman commenting on a blog?

I predict Robert Griffin III will be America's first Heisman winning POTUS, but don't tell Mick because he was born in Japan.

Was there a single, specific event that signaled the fall of Rome?

In other words, did the Romans see it coming in the way we saw our own downfall so unmistakably heralded in KELO.
