“Paddle People” Publicly Perverse

For those of you who don’t follow college football, there is much more that goes on than just the game itself. Especially when some fans want to insert themselves into the game and fantasize that they actually add to the atmosphere and/or the outcome of the contest.

In Oklahoma, the annual season ending game between the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University, generally referred to as “Bedlam,” is always a hotly contested and competitive game. The favored team doesn’t always win, nor the home team. In this year’s game, the emotions were flamed even higher as both teams were highly ranked in a “Winner Takes All” game, the winner would be the conference champion and a chance to play in the national playoff.

At OKStates T. Boone Pickens stadium, the walls to the field area are lined with a padded material. OKSt. fans known as “Paddle People” line the front row and beat on the pads with flat, padded paddles. They have gotten more bizarre by the year since they first began.

This past Saturday night, they nearly exceeded audience comprehension.

Let the fun begin:

Olympic Skiers And The Politics Of “Gore-Bull” Warming

It seems one hundred and five of the winter Olympians have signed a petition demanding climate action, due to the warm climate and melting snow in the Palm Tree lined city of Sochi, Russia.

Anthony Watts has the full story at Watts Up With That.

After reading Mr. Watts article and reviewed all his data, I decided to delve deeper into what is really going on with the weather in Sochi.  I don’t watch the Olympics precisely because they became so politicized and don’t care for winter sports anyway.  Snow and ice are the bane of my existence.

It didn’t take me long to discover what is actually causing so many snow skiers to fall down.  It isn’t “Gore-Bull” warming and there is video proof of what is causing this phenomenon.

Supreme Court Refuses To Hear Case Of Ward “Chutch” Churchill

Not a big deal, really, just one of those stories with the sound of the second shoe dropping.

In a joint statement, CU President Bruce Benson and Boulder campus Chancellor Phil DiStefano said they were pleased with the decision and now consider the matter to be settled.

Any reasonable person knew he was done at CU and would never regain his tenured position at that institution again, not after about 20 other academics ratted him out as a total fraud.

Still, we had some good old times with “Chutch” over at the place that shall not be named, where many of us met as blog buddies.

So in celebration of the fraud Churchill’s just firing being upheld by the courts, I take us back, waaay back to 4 Feb 2005, when Iowahawk introduced us to Chutch.

EPISODE 106: BURY MY HEART AT WOUNDED EGO

SONG: “Colorado Kung-Fu Justice Man”
Words & Music by Tommy Terry and Danny Boycey
Performed by Jan-Peter Bronston
From the ABC-Polyglam LP, “Arapazowee Nation”

In the aspen covered Rockies there’s a legend often told
Of a tenured native shaman with a cougar, grey and gold
He had two fists of fury and a Master of Arts Degree
From accredited Sangamon State University

CHORUS
He was a Colorado kung fu justice man,
Fighting fascist critics across the campus land.
Office hours: Monday Wednesday Friday 9 to 10
Colo-RADO (kung fu)
Colo-RADO (kung fu)

With red hair in his hat and Arapazowee soul
Speaking truth to power was his only goal
Writing grants and lectures, a simple mountain life
A Bultaco for his horse and a cougar for his wife

Adios, Chief Fakeyourassoff, we hardly knew you…and we are truly thankful for that.

FINALLY! NCAA Football Is Here!

It has been a long eight months since the BCS Championship game was played.  I (we?) have been counting down the days for the past three months, anxiously awaiting another season.

The alleged experts have all opined as to who will win it all this year and they have all designated who they believe will be competing for the Heisman, which of course means less than nothing to the final results.

I’m tired of all the talk-talk and opinions, I’m ready to see what the young men do on the field.  I’m ready to see what the experienced players are going to do, as well as what the freshmen phenoms are capable of.

We all have our favorite teams, whether it is from a life time attachment or due to which school we attended.  In my case it is due to the former, growing up admiring the OU Sooners as a child in the midst of their record 47 game winning streak which no one has come close to matching.  Here are some facts about the success OU football has had in its storied history.

As fate would have it, I would attend UT-Austin, the biggest rival of OU.

So in honor of this rivalry and the fact that OU lives rent free in ‘Smack’ Brown’s head, I bring you an ad for the Longhorn Network.(*Contact your local cable/satellite provider and tell them you DO NOT want the LHN*)

Let the games begin!!

Four Days Until NCAA Football

Finally, the wait is nearly over.

While all thoughts turn to a National Championship for our favorite teams, we need a final look back at how the last season ended for the Texas wHorns and what it might mean for them moving forward.

A further look back at the last time Texas had a share of the conference championship, their * season, which may be their impetus for wanting to blow-up the current conference.

You are a clean-shaven fascist because you don’t think that the AIDS virus is spread by a lack of federal funding!

That was the first thing that popped into my mind when I ran across this story over on PhysOrg …

A software developer has created a “chatbot” program for Twitter to automatically detect set phrases associated with arguments put forward by those skeptical of anthropogenic global warming, and to send automated replies of set phrases debunking their arguments.

You can’t make this stuff up!

I got an early birthday present yesterday from my oncologist. Results from Monday’s CT Scan came in, and the report was very good. No sign of cancer anywhere! Ol’ Doc Hansen is a real joker. He said I was going to have to tell my family the bad news — they’re going to have to put up with me for a long time. Hehehee.

God is good!.

Have a great weekend y’all.

The Riddle

from bonz over at gcp …

Barack Obama met with the Queen of England. He asked her, “Your Majesty, how do you run such an efficient government? Are there any tips you can give to me?”

”Well,” said the Queen, “the most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people.”

Obama frowned, and then asked, “But how do I know the people around me are really intelligent?”

The Queen took a sip of tea. “Oh, that’s easy; you just ask them to answer an intelligent riddle.” The Queen pushed a button on her intercom. ”Please send Tony Blair in here, would you?”

Tony Blair walked into the room and said, “Yes, my Queen?”

The Queen smiled and said, “Answer me this please, Tony, your mother and father have a child. It is not your brother and it is not your sister. Who is it?”

Without pausing for a moment, Tony Blair answered, “That would be me.”

”Yes! Very good,” said the Queen.

Obama went back home to ask Joe Biden, his vice presidential choice the same question. “Joe, answer this for me. Your mother and your father have a child. It’s not your brother and it’s not your sister. Who is it?”

”I’m not sure,” said Biden. “Let me get back to you on that one.” He went to his advisors and asked every one, but none could give him an answer. Finally, he ended up in the men’s room and recognized Colin Powell’s shoes in the next stall.

Biden asked Powell, “Colin, can you answer this for me? Your mother and father have a child and it’s not your brother or your sister. Who is it?”

Colin Powell yelled back, “That’s easy, it’s me!”

Biden smiled, and said, “Thanks!”

Then, he went back to speak with Obama. “Say, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle. It is Colin Powell!”

Obama got up, stomped over to Biden, and angrily yelled into his face,
”No! you idiot! It’s Tony Blair!”

Grim Reaper Update

jseedubya posits this update to the Grim Reaper thread

“The Reaper happens to be an old friend of mine, Seedub – a confidante, if you will. I choose to disclose this fact to you not, as I’m sure it will seem to many, in some vein of shameless name-dropping, but rather out of concern for you.

Don’t get your hopes up about Obama:
A while ago, in the Reaper’s very presence, I surmised that your favorite politician was Ted Kennedy. Forgive my interference if undue or unfounded.”

So, New Year’s Resolutions Come Three Weeks Behind Schedule

In the spirit of “Loyal Opposition My [redacted],” I would like to offer y’all some cheer for the upcoming inauguration. Yes, we thought that the gag-worthy Obamessiah Adoration would be over after the election, but it seems to have increased in frequency – much like a teenage boy, whom, having finally gotten laid, is not calm and satisfied, but wants more – and more – and more.

At any rate, there are some silver linings in all this. Thanks to Glenn Beck, there’s a theme song for Tuesday’s festivities.

The top New Year’s Resolution – to lose weight – has not been a paragon of success – until now. Who can deny that the idolatry of Obama is nauseating? Who hasn’t lost her appetite (yes, even for things made out of chocolate) while watching the media-love-fest, which puts baby-talking teenagers who sit on each other’s laps to shame? Who hasn’t thrown up, if even in their mouths, if even a little, in the past few months? Fear not, dear readers: weight loss just got easier. Move over, small portions and blue plates! Obama is the New South Beach Diet.

The New York Times is running out of money – fast. Apparently, people don’t want to buy the paper that sent Maureen Dowd on a fact-finding mission to Alaska that was reminiscent of Joe Wilson’s “fact-finding” mission to Nigeria.

The pundits are already pointing out that Obama cannot possibly deliver on all of his promises. (Granted, we wish they had said so in October, but ’tis the nature of the modern media.) This allows plenty of opportunity to say “I told you so” and the like.

Americans who are abroad and are ashamed of being from this country are feeling the love from foreigners. Silver lining: those unpatriotic, thankless pansywaists are more likely to stay abroad.

Sorry for the rant (sort of!) – but I figured that y’all have to be more than a little tired of the love-fest.

The Clinton Gore Connection

So, you thought you knew it all, didn’t you? Think again.

I think these will sell well……….

It occurs to me that my one man rant against the tobacco prohibitionists (and let’s be real here, that’s just what they are) may get me into hot water some day. People who speak up for freedom usually do end that way. And make no mistake: this isn’t just about my right to smoke a pipe or cigar. It’s about a group of fanatics who have hijacked a legitimate health concern and turned it into a way to expand Nanny Government. The anti-tobacco movement has become nothing more than a group of disingenuous fanatics whose real goal is nothing short of the total prohibition of tobacco. Their moral standing is now no higher than that of the cigarette companies. Anyone who doubts this should click here, here, and ESPECIALLY here.

So it’s only a matter of time until they come after me. I honestly believe that at some time a little old fashioned civil disobedience is going to be needed here. So when the time comes, I thought it might be helpful to have a few items to sell so I can raise money to make bail. Or rather, so that my friends can raise money for me, since I’ll be in jail.

So I thought a t-shirt would be a nice touch. Revolutionaries look cool on a t-shirt. So scroll down and let me know what you think of mine. I think it will be a collector’s item one day.

TAH DAH!

This is the future

The anti tobacco movement is reaching new heights of audacity in their desire to curb personal freedom and turn law abiding citizens into criminals. As this newspaper article from the future shows, I will not go quietly.

September 13, 2040

Residents of a quiet Boston neighborhood were stunned to learn of the arrest and imprisonment of Stephen Smith, an elderly neighbor, on charges of tobacco possession. Neighbors expressed shock and dismay at the news that this seemingly respectable senior citizen had, in fact, been a secret tobacco user for many years.

“He seemed like such a nice old man”, said one neighbor who did not wish to be identified. “We never suspected he was a tobacco user. We thought he just smoked marijuana like the rest of us. I’m totally outraged when I think that he was putting the entire neighborhood at risk from his second hand tobacco smoke. How could he be so irresponsible? Everyone knows second hand tobacco smoke kills on contact.”

Neighbors became suspicious when they noticed an odd smell eminating from his pipe one day. Apparently Smith had devised a clever scheme to hide his tobacco use, mixing judicious amounts of the illegal leaf with the high quality marijuana he was often seen smoking in his beloved briar pipes. According to sources, he had been stockpiling tobacco for several years prior to its outlawing in 2013, the same year marijuana was legalized by then president Nancy Pelosi as her first act in office.

“It was the Latakia that tipped us off”, said an unnamed police source. “Nothing smells that bad. He kept putting more and more of it in his marijuana.”

Police raided Smith’s home in the early morning, dragging the elderly man from his bed as he was still clutching his briar. As he was being stuffed into the back of the police cruiser, neighbors could hear him shouting, “You can have my tobacco when you can pry it from my cold, dead fingers!”

If convicted, Smith, given his advanced age, would probably be able to avoid a lengthy prison sentence by voluntarily enrolling in a tobacco re-education program and remaining tobacco free thereafter. He would also have to register with the police as a Level 3 tobacco user, and avoid all contact with children.

He would still, of course, be permitted to smoke as much pure marijuana as he likes.
