Enlaces Calientes para Cinco de Mayo

What’s the word?
No, really. What’s the word?
Oh, jeez. Last time. WHAT’S THE WORD?


Koala Mom.

Veteran Dan Crenshaw stands up.

Nicholas Sandmann did nothing wrong.

“There are demon worshipers in the cul-de-sac” [Sound up].

There is a reason that she’s referred to as Alexandria Occasional Cortex. (Dude wouldn’t post my polite comment either, even though I’ve been linking to his site for years.)


We took an unscheduled trip recently, and Bunkessa had some observations about the plane flights: “They treat us like children.”

“Get in line. No talking.”
“We’re not going anywhere until you buckle your seat belt.”
“Sit up straight.”
“Put your toys away.”
“We’re turning off the lights so you can sleep.”
“BTW, you’re grounded until we say otherwise.”
“Curfew is at 11PM.”
“Once we land, you may go to the Carousel.”

Saturday Matinee – St. Patrick’s Day Eve Edition: Irish Wedding at 5AM, The O’Reillys & The Paddyhats, & The Rumjacks

Saturday, 16 March 2019

Pretty good rendition of “The Rattlin’ Bog.” It’s a tough song to sing, but I’m partial to the version sung by The Fenians. Saw them sing it live more than once, and Terry Casey never stumbled.

The O’Reillys & The Paddyhats jam it with “Barrels of Whiskey.”

The Rumjacks‘ “An Irish Pub Song” is “a piss take at the explosion of Irish Pubs in Australia and the bastardisation of a culture.
From the lyrics posted on the Utoobage:

There’s a county map to go on the wall,
A hurling stick & a shinty ball,
The bric, the brac, the craic & all,
Lets call it an Irish pub.

Caffreys, Harp, Kilkenny on tap,
The Guinness pie & that cabbage crap,
The ideal wannabee Paddy trap,
We’ll call it an Irish pub.

You get the idea. On the other hand, my favorite Irish rebel song was a broadside set to music: Nell Flaherty’s Drake. It’s got some of the best snarky curses I’ve ever read. Here’s The Clancy Brothers’ version.

This is kinda fun, too. Good story intro:
The Night I Punched Russell Crowe.”

Have a great weekend, folks. We’ll be donning some green tomorrow.

HAPPY NEW YEAR ME BLOOGIES!

Tuesday, 1 January 2019

Amazing. Just one year ago this exact same thing happened.

However, if you exceeded your level of tolerance last night and you cringe at having to prepare something to eat for the Bowl Bowl Games, you’ve come to the right place.

Bunk’s Chili is 1 hour prep, 1 hour leaving it alone, one hour nap, and you’re good to go.

Happy New Year!

New Year’s Eve 2019

May you have peace, liberty, prosperity, and allow yourselves to consume and enjoy massive quantities of stuff that causes tumors in rats.

Rock on.

I’m Dreaming Of A White Hot Links

Okay, let’s have a poll. Answers are randomized, multiple choices are allowed, all anonymous. Pick your top three, add nominations as you wish.

Holiday Fun: Cat Poop Cookies.

From the ICYMI Department:
Porch Package Theft Payback is brilliant.

The Best Christmas Song Collection ever IMO.

If that’s not The Best Christmas Song Collection ever, THIS IS.

It’s not officially Christmas until I hear this version of Leroy Anderson’s 1946 classic.

From the Fun Facts To Know And Tell Department:
The song “Christmas Is My Time Of Year” was originally recorded in 1968 by the one-off supergroup “The Christmas Spirit” which included members of The Turtles (including Flo & Eddie), The Byrds and Linda Ronstadt. In 1976, an even sappier version was recorded and released by We Three Monkees.

[Top Image: I want to believe that’s a gourd. I really do, but it creeps me right out. These Christmas Tchotckes are very nicely done, but they would have given me nightmares when I was little [via].]
