Garden State moment

Ever have one of those days where you say something and then later realize that you used a combination of words that is so strange it may have never, ever been used by another human being?  Ever?  I’m not talking about made-up words like “shazizzle”, I”m talking about real words.

Let me know if you know anyone who has ever used the phrase “prehensile butt hair” before, because I googled it and came up empty.

My Idea for a new Winter Sport

This is a team competition combining Snowboard Cross with Biathlon.

2 snowboarders and one shooter per team.  The shooter uses a paintball gun and gets one round only.  The shooter can set up anywhere on the course and can shoot either a snowboarder or another shooter.  If you’re hit, you’re out (shooter or boarder).  3 teams per heat, winner moves on.

Think about the possibilities for real-time tactics. Do you have one boarder hang back and break for it after some of the leaders get taken out?  Do you try to get both of your boarders to the front so you can take out another shooter, guaranteeing only one of your boarders can get taken out?  Where do you set up as the shooter to maximize your ability to take out either another shooter or a racer?

Look, it’s no stupider than Slopestyle.  I mean, really.  Who thought that one up?  Because scraping the bottom of your skis along a stair rail seems like such a good idea.

Government didn’t step in to save Firefly, so unless something on PBS or NPR is better than Firefly, I don’t see why my tax dollars should go to it.

Leave your concealed carry weapon locked in your vehicle for a couple of hours while you attend to business inside a county jail in 8° weather.  When you re-holster your weapon in your Inside the Waist Band concealed carry holster, you quickly learn the Beatles were right when they said “Happiness is a warm gun.”

I’ve been having some trouble getting anything accomplished the past few days.  For example, this morning I planned to drink heavily all day, but I just never got around to it.

An alternate wording

AKA: let me fix that for you.

I was perusing Facebook a couple of days ago (yes, I know it was a mistake, but sometimes I just can’t help myself) when I noticed one of those slogan/graphic thingys on the wall of one of my left-leaning facebook friends.  It said:

“small government” is fascist dog whistle for “More Corporate Control”

I was tempted to reply with the following:

Clever.  High buzzword content.  Rings all the right bells in certain circles.  Factually inaccurate, though, as “small government” and “fascist” are, by definition, mutually exclusive.

I didn’t post it.  No sense harshing someone’s mellow over something as petty and inconsequential as accuracy.  Especially since the leftist narrative has incorrectly equated “fascist” with “right-wing” for so long you can’t convince them otherwise.  It did, however, suggest the following alternate slogan:

“fascist” is leftist dog whistle for “anyone we don’t like”

Feeling Threatened QOTD

From IMAO:

I don’t get the Starbucks thing; how can you be threatened by a guy drinking a pumpkin spice latte even if he is openly carrying a gun?
