Joey and Bingo, next time they try to send you back where you came from, refuse to go. Howl and scratch. Call dog protective services. If all that fails, just show up on their porch again and again.

Yankees are facing elimination...

Another sign Romney is going to win ;)

Do the dog's nails scratch you wood floor?

I posted this below, but it was off-topic there and got buried in the thread, so I'll post it again here:

Okay, this is brilliant funny:

Bad lip syncing the first presidential debate

Come on, Althouse, get this video on Instapundit! Good clean fun!

Curiosity has a Google Plus channel (Face book, too, but ick) and just posted a bunch of awesome pictures.

You know what's worse then a man in shorts? A man wearing jeans, and a sweatshirt, with no socks or shoes. Weird. That's hillbilly stuff. Put on some socks man!

Apparently they found evidence of a planet around Alpha Centauri B.

At about 4.2 lightyears away the Alpha Centauri system is the nearest neighbor of our solar system. It's a trinary star system, made of 3 stars (named A, B, and Proxima). A is slightly more massive and brighter than our sun while B is slightly less massive and dimmer and Proxima is a small red dwarf.

The planet they seemed to have found orbits very close to B, so close that it's year is only 3 days long and its surface temperature is probably 1500 Kelvin.

Bare feet. Brrr.

Do you have radiant heat in your house? Our floors are too cold for anything but wool socks.

Bingo loves a rub the way Quantum does, but the how-many-dogs-and-one-blonde-can-fit-in-a-chair problem is why Herself likes Yorx.

PS Now we know Hillary didn't go entirely voluntarily.

Willie's revenge begins.

Joey wants you to take the stuffed puppy and give it back to him.

It's an acknowledgment of his puppy, which he believes will interest you.

Or at least formally tug at it for him.

Henry said...

hey so a while back Ann linked to this thread where Meade was dissing a WI protester who was supposedly terminally ill. He was getting tons of shit on that forum for attacking a dying man.

What ever happened with that? Was the dude lying, or is he dead?

BLR always does funny stuff. The one of Rick Perry is hilarious.

Methadras said...

I rub my bucky on the head the same way. Boxers have a very pronounced cranial crown and it makes them, from certain angles look like a jelly bean. He also loves having his eyes rubbed.

Ann Althouse said...

"Come on, Althouse, get this video on Instapundit! Good clean fun!"

I saw that a while back and thought I was late picking it up, so I didn't post. It's really late now. And it's especially hard to figure out what has already been posted at Instapundit.

"You know what's worse then a man in shorts? A man wearing jeans, and a sweatshirt, with no socks or shoes. Weird. That's hillbilly stuff. Put on some socks man!"

I read that out loud to Meade and he said "I am a hillbilly." And then: "I'm more of a hick. I come from a long line of hicks. Hicks. Hoosiers. And hayseeds. I couldn't be more proud."

Patrick said...

Looks like the Yanks are going down.

Kinda wonder how Trooper York is taking it all. Not well, I presume.

Synova said...

Full sized billboard on the way into town: Sunset orange with the silhouette of a cowboy:" If someone doesn't do the job, you gotta let him go."

Or whatever the actual quote is.

Yard signs... a few local dems but noticibly dominated by the female republican House and Senate candidates. Mostly the lady running for Congress. Very few Romney Ryan Signs. Almost No Obama Biden signs. Way fewer signs than 2008 for anyone (other than Janice who I mentioned)

There are some new Obama Biden bumper stickers but total bumpers tickers seen down, too.

Someone has a couple of huge Romney and liberty banners they attach to the inside of the freeway walk-overs during rush hour. They don't leave them unattended but stand out there waving to commuters.


Peter Hoh said...

Meade, I think hick is the right call. You can't be a hillbilly if you're a flatlander.

Lem said...

Detroit is six outs away from going to the world series.

Patrick said...

Yanks are done.

Paddy O said...

"It's really late now."

Oh, I don't know. I think it being late is helpful, as it's not about the content of the debate, but just a bit of silliness about the debates in general, and the last debate exemplified how silly these things can be.

"And it's especially hard to figure out what has already been posted at Instapundit."

That's definitely true. I don't remember seeing it there, however.

(and thanks for the response)

Dante said...

But, Mom, how come HE gets all the attention?

(Jealous dogs)

Lincecum fails to hold back the cards.

Carnifex said...

The grin that looks lovable and goofy on a dog looks creepy and goofy on the Vice President.

tiger said...

Professor?

WHY are these pups constantly at your house?

Just wondering and thinking that maybe it's time for you to get your own...

M.E. said...

@Paddy O: Thanks for that link; the whole family cracked up! "Party time chumps!"

Bad lip syncing the first presidential debate

dandean said...

I like the concept of 'loaner dogs'.

Sort of like when you drop your car at the dealership and they let you use one of their cars.

Still, in the final analysis, owning your own Labs is the BEST!

Full disclosure: I live with two of them and love it!

Well that doesn't do us any good at all, does it?
Get back to us when you find one with nice beaches and native people that are willing to work for a few glass beads.

Just outside of Eagle River there's a bus painted black with some very unflattering things about our president written on it in white paint.
I don't think the owner is going to be voting for Mr. Obama.

That's a good point. What I did a while ago when I remodeled my house was that I found a hand scraped, distressed hardwood flooring solution in an espresso color that would hide all of those issues very well. The stain itself went down fairly deep into the grain, so you wouldn't see the lighter wood come up underneath the distressing.

I've often thought to myself that if time travel were ever an option, I'd go back to that fateful meeting with the Lenape or Canarsee indian tribes and buy Manhattan all for myself, set it up so that I own all of it, then come back to this modern time to lay claim to wealth it generated for me. :D

I'd probably end up being a trillionaire. :D

As long as we're dreaming;

I invented air.
Pay me,bitches.

Aridog said...

Hey Rusty...Lisa Jackson and Carole Browner here...since you caused air, and it's polluted by breathing, pay up to Big Gaia God, the EPA!!

Synova said...

I realized today when I saw a single Obama/Biden yard sign (which puts him up to two residences that I've seen so far) that the sign I see most is Gary Johnson. I'd guess that I've seen two or three times the Gary Johnson yard signs than I've seen of Romney and Obama combined.

The streets I was driving down (out of my usual way) that had the Obama/Biden yard sign had, along the route, probably a dozen residences for either "Heather" or "Janice" and those had a sign or two for a judge and a State representative I hadn't heard of (and may not be in my district) who I assume are Republicans because of the "Janice" signs.

The polls show New Mexico solid for Obama and I know there are lots of Democrat voters here, but for whatever reason they aren't putting signs up.

Synova said...

The Romney banner guy was above the freeway this morning at 7:30 in a suit coat and hat waving a big US flag at commuters. Dedicated! A couple miles later someone had put up home-made Janice and Heather signs.

Alan said...

Got a question. The Commission on Presidential Debates scheduled four debates. For moderators they picked two well-known top-shelf male journalists with considerable name recognition, and two not-so-well-known third-shelf female journalists. Why? The more prestigious names of female broadcast journalists not in the Commission's binder? Candy-O and Raddwhatsis was the best they could do? Did the debates conflict with Judy Woodruff's bridge night? Andrea Mitchell not returning calls? Cokie Roberts down with the flu? What's the deal?
