April 30th /May 1st is a big day among Norse pagans marking half way day from the vernal equinox to the summer solstice.

The Walspurgisnicht was also a favorite of you know who. He offed himself that night in 1945 and had his corpse taken outside and burned. It is called the night of the burning of the witches.

What can we do? The Czechs were into drinking Meade as part of their ceremony...the light alcohol Meade drink, that is.

Yet another undocumented worker in the news for killing an American and getting off scot-free: http://bit.ly/10qbp8I
All is well in Wisconsin's liberal paradise.

States ranked by per capita beer consumption:

1-New Hampshire 2-North Dakota 3-Montana
...
48-New Jersey 49-New York 50-Connecticut

What's the connection? Taxes? SAT scores?

Having just returned from a long walk in the sunshine, I'm two-toned. Some of me is slightly pink.

Started out walking to work this morning, then returned home to get a hat to protect from the big fusion reactor in the sky.

Obama, at his presser today, said, "Maybe I should just pack up and go home."

Don't tease us like that !

"Obama, at his presser today, said, "Maybe I should just pack up and go home.""

Obama is like Nixon.

Pogo said...

If Obama had any balls, he'd get a dog and name it Checkers.

Meade said...

Yeah. And he'd buy his wife a respectable Republican cloth coat.

Original Mike said...

Michelle would never stand for that.

"At the Slightly Pink Café...

... you can show your true colors."

I liked that and it brought to mind a funny family story about boys and the color pink that I considered sharing. But then I remembered that there are some sick folks here (Inga, Ritmo) who, in there oh so tolerant way, would use that info to later comeback and scream "faggot" at me.

(And, no, the story is not about me but I sure as hell am not going to say who it is about.)

David said...

It's always about Obama. Slightly pink indeed.

Meade said...

Matt, feel free to tell the story and make it about me. I'm not afraid of sick folks like Ritmo and Inga.

LOL! I thought through the story with "Meade" inserted in the appropriate places and it made it even funnier. Even so, I would have to redact too much information to make it work and still not give the resident Lefty bigots ammunition for their hate parade.

Meade said...

Okay. And in all honesty, I AM a little afraid of Inga.

edutcher said...

You mean we wouldn't have Zero to kick around any more?

(be still, my beating heart)

RazorSharpSundries said...

The resident lefty bigots come supplied w/ their own ammo. They're just spouting off a lifetime's indoctrination from the public schools and mass media. Locked and loaded.

Meade said...

Okay. And in all honesty, I AM a little afraid of Inga.

Hey, do what The Blonde's father did whenever any of his sons got beaten up - Send the girl over to beat them up.

ndspinelli said...

That'a Zsa Zsa, not Inga. She changed it..again.

Original Mike said...

"That'a Zsa Zsa, not Inga. She changed it..again."

Oh, for crying out loud.

Someone should set up an auxiliary site keeping track of the various Althouse commenter's sock puppets.

I LOVE the idea of sharing stories but using Meade as the stand-in for the leading character. Let's all do that! This could be very funny. Meademoirs! (Chip Ahoy could animate the best, or worst, or hell just whatever struck ihs fancy.

Plant trees, especially oak trees, and make ready The Wicker Man.

Matt said...

Ok, I'll bite. Here is my anecdote Meade-ized...

My wife and Meade are heading out to Disney World tomorrow. Leading up to the trip, we bought for Meade a Mario Bros rolling suitcase. Meade LOVES Mario. At the same time, we bought a pink Princess Peach one for his younger sister. Meade decided he liked the pink one better so tomorrow he will be heading out with his pink suitcase in tow.

Meade is eight years old and just a touch autistic so he really doesn't get nor care about the "gender orientation" of different colors. As it happens, we don't really care either so, if Meade wants pink, Meade can have pink!

(If and when he gets teased about this, we will explain it to him and help him adapt. We aren't going to have him in dresses like that fruity family from last year. As it happens, should my wife and Meade run into an Inga or Ritmo during their trip, well, my wife is even less of a shit taker than me.)

Meade is very popular in school despite the occasional disruptiveness of his condition. His favorite color is orange. In Kindergarten, Meade's teacher did a survey of the favorite color of her students. Orange won in a landslide.

It does cause problems when some of the little girls in Meade's class want to help him with his school work. He is not going to learn that way!

Anyway, Meade's colors, that he shows us daily, are orange and pink, which makes him quite the joy for us.

@Matt:

Meade sounds like a cool kid.

Lem said...

By golly, he does hate it.

Icepick said...

So Jason Collins wasted seven years of some woman's life by stringing her along, up until he called off the wedding. Exactly how courageous is that? And can she sue him for wasting seven prime years of her life?

The flower is proof
That beauty has use,
To catch on the fly
The pollinater's eye.

Revenant said...

And can she sue him for wasting seven prime years of her life?

The lesson here: "waiting until we're married" is a sucker's game. :)

Just to let you know you think you dodged a bullet Matt. But I'm ever vigilant, waiting for you to step out of line just once so I can spring into action and uncork my full-blown hate parade.

Chip Ahoy said...

Autistic child Mead's pink rolling backpack, and nobody notices.

The sauce pic was so cool, I really hated to mess with that little girl. Her luggage was brown and dead serious, and so is she apparently traveling by her little self.

Matt said...

LOL. Chip, I love it.

kentuckyliz said...

Love the illustration Chip.

Meade said...

Superb, Chip!

rcommal said...

Chip: You are my hero! Thanks.
