"Pimp" at Stinky Cheese

Just something I happened to see today when I stopped into Stinky Brooklyn, that store on Smith Street.

Did you say "STINKY?"

That's a bad word.

Sundown is getting later.

Still, with your pale skin, it would be better if you were inside, doors locked, well in advance of sundown.

Unless, you've got a Man on your arm. Then, you can go anywhere, anytime.

Are you saying Chelsea is a WHORE?

The Clintons demand an apology, and your summary firing.

I heard the Food Network is going to use that store for a new show. It is a knock off of a show on another network.

The show will feature various ways to make stinky cheese more attractive.

They are going to call it Pimp My Cheese.

I heard they are looking for someone's daughter to host it.

Pimp' and its many meanings
Sunday, June 11, 2006
The origin of the word "pimp" is not known. It is thought to come from the 16th century French word "pimper," which means "alluring or seducing in outward appearance."

Pimps eventually became known as men who solicited clients for prostitutes, who in turn give all the money to the pimp.

In recent times, the word has come to mean stylish, cool or successful.

For example, "You got an 'A' on your science test. Go ahead, pimp."

It can also be used as a verb meaning to highly decorate, customize.

For example, "Let me pimp that white T-shirt for you."

To pimp also mean to heavily promote something or take advantage of someone.

Example, "They really pimped that new show on ABC." Or, "They made you work late but didn't pay any over time? They really pimped you."

One form of the word is pimpin'. As a verb, pimpin' means living large, being successful, persuasive.

"I sold four houses this month. I'm big pimpin'."

Pimpin' can also be used as a noun, "What's up, pimpin'?"

The word is also used in the medical profession to describe the practice of peppering medical interns with questions in order to wear them down.

Despite the insistence by some that pimping today has nothing to do with the negative image of yesteryear, there are numerous online games and products based on the stereotypical pimp.

Keeppimpin.com is a multi-player online game where players "slap your hoes, pimp the streets and kill the competition." Similar games are Outpimp.com; Pimpwar.com and Pimpdaddy.com

Web sites like pimphats.com; phatpimpclothing.com and pimpcostumes.com sell items such as like royal blue suits, gold-handle canes, rhinestone-encrusted cups and fur coats etc.

Good one, bitch.

Hey Althouse, are you still pimping you son John's IMs?

Bissage said...

Just something I happened to see today . . .

I nearly died of laughter! Coughing fit and all that.

If it’s true that Clapton is God then we need to come up with a new word for Althouse!

P.S. Nice dog!

Chip Ahoy said...

That's God as palindrome getting back.

Unknown said...

It did not take long. Here is one persons response to the Shuster apology and Chelsea Clinton.


Chip Ahoy said...

Woo to pimp my cheese. Although, cheese is more of a pimper than a pimpee.

Bissage said...

This is no lie.

Completely unprompted, Mrs. Bissage just brought me a plate of cheese.

Miller approves!

Cheese up, nose down.

I just saw a film, The Diving Bell And The Butterfly, about a stroke victim, but I couldn't tell you whether it was or was not a great film or a tragic film or a moving film because the victim has 4, count 'em 4, of the most luscious French twats imaginable administering aid and comfort to him. Anyhow, this pimp thread seemed to call out for that comment.

Middle Class Guy: That is POOR!

Hey, I didn't make it. It was emailed to me. I just provided the service of passing it on.

On the other hand, calling to mind either of the female Clintons, Russian "babes," or Henry Kissinger are all effective stragegies to prolong my part of the evening, if you know what I mean.

Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Blake, this one’s for you:

MILLER: A lot of people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch of unconnected incidents and things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice of coincidence that lays on top of everything.

Give you an example, show you what I mean. Suppose you're thinking about a plate of shrimp. Suddenly someone will say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate of shrimp, out of the blue, no explanation. No point in looking for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

OTTO: You eat a lot of acid, Miller, back in the hippie days?

MILLER: I'll give you another instance. You know how everybody's into weirdness right now?

Bissage said...

Heh, heh, heh, heh.

According to Politico, the Head Cheese wrote a letter to MSNBC about their behavior towrds her campaign. She implied that it was stinky and they better do something about it, like fire Shuster.

She then oozed:
“I would urge you to look at the pattern of behavior on your network that seems to repeatedly lead to this sort of degrading language,” Clinton wrote. “There’s a lot at stake for our country in this election. Surely, you can do your jobs as journalists and commentators and still keep the discourse civil and appropriate.”

Let's see, US Senator running for President, and she is an attorney. What part of the Constitution doesn't she understand. She can disagree with inappropriate comments, but she has no right, duty, or obligation to demand action. Welcome to the new USA folks!

Painfully obvious, I know, but MCG typed "oozed" and where I come from that means something was "runny."

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you, the Cheese Shop sketch!

That was a very nice, runny trip down memory lane. It oozed with English humor. What is it about the word oozed?

Bissage said...

Hey Trooper, what’s the best way to make a cheese sandwich? That’s right, use PIMPernickel bread!!!

And now that we’ve spritzed seltzer all over these threads, it’s time to slip out of these wet clothes and into a dry martini!!!

* rimshot *

Bissage said...

What is it about the word oozed?

I could slur the answer, but that would "b" telling.

[ hic! ]

Bissage said...

And you know what?

That first joke can be improved.

How does ALTHOUSE make a cheese sandwich?

tommy the boy whose computer i use
just got back from playing the guitar at a church talent show thingey

its stinky cheese time on my fave blog
with a rhinestone pimp sign nearby
go figure

anyway just today mom gave everybody
some really nice english cheddar with lunch
it came from some expensive cheese shop mom goes to
mom is french so she always has stinky and runny cheese
around the kitchen much to dads disgust
and she spends a lot of money at the expensive cheese shop
much to dads disgust
but i dont mind
mmmm love that runny cheese

anyway tommy dropped a whole half inch cube
--thats 12mm for those of you on planet metric--
of yummy english seaside chedder on the floor for me
thank you tommy
i had a very nice dinner
now if someone would only leave a little capful of guiness stout on the floor

you know i see some really prime cockroach real estate
in that picture at the top of this post
i could move in between those counter tops
and have cheese breakfast lunch and dinner every day
on the other hand it would be boring yawn
so i think ill stay where i am and eat a more varied diet
mom is both french and messy
and dad thinks shes hot
so we are all happy

i guess i shouldnt talk about food all the time
i could argue politics on the internet instead
but im afraid if i say anything other than
hooray for mrs clinton
go hillary we love you
hillary is the most experienced candidate
sen clinton has the best interests of working families at heart
hillary will see to it education is no 1
mrs clintons health care plan is the best
sen clinton will bring our troops home because she supports them
mrs clinton will make sure your taxes are fair
hillary loves the little children
and all the animals who come to hear her speeches
and the birds sit on her shoulders when she talks
--oops thats going too far--
anyway if i talk politics and dont say all that
im afraid someone will come along
and squash me just like that
look whats happened to everybody who gets out of line
vis a vis the clintons

so ill just talk food
and sing hillarys praises
and hope tommy leaves some of that pepperoni pizza on the counter
and i don't get squashed

i know this is too long but i just want to say
bissage and trooper york--
please please please take over these threads
because you are really funny
and help settle my stomach
after an evening of eating cheese
not to mention thinking about mrs clinton

blogging cockroach said...

you know i have the uncomfortable feeling
i just stepped all over everybodys lines
sorry guys
timing is everything in this business

Bissage said...

Please accept my extreme thanks, Mr. Cockroach!

You should know I’ve been a huge fan of yours from the very start.

(And no, I haven’t figured out who you used to be.)

But now it’s time for me to feed the damn cats before going to bed.

Seeing as you’re up and about, I’ll spill some of their food so they won’t notice.

But give it fifteen minutes or so.

They’ll be asleep by then.

Better safe than sorry.

blogging cockroach said...

thanks for the offer, bissage
i like cats especially if they are asleep
its rats you really have to watch out for
and believe me im saying nothing here about the clintons

if you havent figured it out by now
i actually used to be luckyoldson
but i woke up one morning and had 6 legs
2 antennas etc
fortunately i was getting smaller and smaller as well
so i wasnt a burden on the family
and could just scoot away to seek my fortune
and not leave them with some giant insect to bury
should I die

The PIMP meter is used in the production of Provolone cheese. The meter is placed on the coagulating curds and when it no longer sinks to the bottom the cheesemaker Pours In Milk Promptly hence the name PIMP meter.
