News from Wisconsin.

1. The State Fair opened, with 10 new foods —  including Beercicles and Blue Moon Marinated Pork Tacos with Garlic Fries — and Scott Walker rode the Supernova:



2. Green Bay has Gags, the Green Bay Clown. He's considered "creepy," and his balloons are black, but the police won't do a thing about him: "A person can walk down the sidewalk dressed however they want as long as they’re in a place they legally can be, and they’re not in a place that has a closing time, like a park."



3. Donald Trump is coming to Green Bay tomorrow to do a big rally, but I have heard no rumors of him scouting the place beforehand in a clown costume, though have heard that he is creepy. And a clown. But it's my observation that he steers clear of balloons...



... unlike Bill Clinton...

5:1 Gags is a Democrat.
Someone, take my money.

I wonder if they let KFC sell inside the Fairgrounds? Trump will bring his own silver knife and fork set. The word is he likes legs and breasts best.

But will Scott Walker dare to greet Trump in public now that he has been deemed a monster again. Walker can wear his Ryan for Congress hat.

Can I order the Sporkie contestants? One Elvis chicken & waffle sandwich and Sprecher Root Beer Float cake...


My new favorite Summer dish: Saltie Girl Fried Lobster and Waffle with Sweet Corn Butter and Warm Maple Syrup.

I can believe Bill was playing with the balloons. Hillary practiced first. Are there people in Green Bay who think bad clown get-ups should be a police matter?

They say all that confetti falling on the Clinton's was her 30,000 missing emails that were shredded to hide the Top Secret markings.

Beercicles!

"Trump will bring his own silver knife and fork set."

Is the spoon worn out?

4. Ryan is running against Nehlen in an open primary, allowing anyone registered to vote there to "vote their conscience".

I've seen a woman in a burqa ONCE, in the public library monitoring her children. Nothing but eyes amidst the black fabric, and it was deeply unsettling. I'm with France -- face-covering in public should be illegal.

And that goes for you, too, Gags.

I don't understand how people can eat that crap.

Don't they feel like shit and need to shit immediately after shoveling that stuff in their mouth?

Sometimes if I feel I ate a little too much, and feel my abs aren't as pronounced as usual, I throw up just a bit or a lot. I feel so much better afterwards. I don't do this very often though. Maybe once every two months and only after having dinner because after dinner I am going to be looking for hog and I don't want to feel bloated and grindr guys usually want very recent pics-like even on the same day.

Do you know how many pics you have to send on grindr before you hook....too many. Face, ass, legs, chest, dick hard and soft, flexing, butt, full body naked hard with face-so they know you didn't use someone's dick, chest, face pics. One pic that isn't stellar and a block is on the way. It is grueling I tell you. Fortunately I have only been blocked a few times, where I block constantly-even sometimes when they have traveled to my place and are outside my loft. I have ghosted too many peeps. I step out on my Juliet Balcony with binoculars to size up the trade. I never travel, only host.

Oh I take that back. I have traveled a few times. Do you know most guys who live around me live in just 1 or 2 rooms or a complete dump of a place-and pay a fortune? Most have roommates which is why I don't travel.

Now I am horny.

They'll be anything but fair to Trump at the fair.

MadisonMan said...

Beercicle. Ugh. The carbonation is what makes the beer.

Not a fan of garlic either -- it's overused.

MadisonMan said...

@eric -- The State Fair is not in Green Bay, it's in West Allis.

5. Self-proclaimed psychopath, 14, 'slits the throat of her brother's girlfriend after beating her for hours in hopes of making her first kill'

And isn't Lake Woebegone in Wisconsin? That State Fair sounds sort of rural.

But the Country needs someone to make the real cheese and the butter and sell it to us. I never liked Margarine or the Buttery Tasting Spread coming with a Land O Lakes labels and fine print.

Give me that old time sweet butter.

6. UW Platteville Strives to Prove It is Every Bit as Insane as UW Madison

traditionalguy said...

I have heard of Beer Goggles. They make everything look like fun.

But isn't Blue Moon Beer the expensive Belgian White Ale that is too good to waste on a desert.

Original Mike said...

"Beercicle. Ugh. The carbonation is what makes the beer."

You're probably right, but i'd give it a try. OTOH, I'm not going to Milyuckee to do so.

YoungHegelian said...

Oh, great. Now Blogger is hosing up the text of URLs, pointing them towards a broken link.

I wonder if they are now screwing with embedded HTML.

Test.

YoungHegelian said...

Okay, what the Hell?

Why is blogger now breaking URL links?

Blue Moon Marinated Pork Tacos with Garlic Fries
Description: Arriba, Arriba, Andale! Two soft tacos with a different twist . . .

This is unoriginal cultural appropriation via Speedy Gonzalez. Sick.
And the Italian sandwich is topped with American cheese.

Unknown said...

That's because it's Midwesterners. Sorry, but it had to be said. And it's Andale Andale Arriba!

Fascinating Darrell but it's being true isn't enough. It has to be known and shown Beyond denial. Remember Woodrow Wilson. I'm sure someone will be happy to be her ventriloquist. So how to evoke it at the debates or at some time where it can't be missed?

Lem said...

Nice post.

Not at all. Shoot, shovel and shut up.

I'm not going 'til the I94 construction is done.

Patrick said...

Riiiiiiide with Governor Walker!

Chuck said...

Pity, how many people have never heard of Insane Clown Posse.

Governor Walker sitting next to somebody not his wife. He's learning.

"Ah, but we don't arrest people for being creepy"
[one of the pigs gets a startled expression. He gets his walkie-talkie and says quietly says]
"Hey, Bruce, y'know that guy we have in the tank?"
"The creepy one ...?"
"Yeah, better let him go."

I love "Hoodwinked" ...
