I sort of love the results of this Larry King/Ahmadinejad "blingee" contest.

But if I look at it for more than a few seconds, I get nauseated and on the verge of a seizure, so I don't know what to think of this new form of visual humor. Seriously, now, just thinking of looking at that page again makes me ill.

I love funny things, but is it worth it?

[Larry King] So, I understand that you are part rat. Looking from those slitty little beady eyes of yours. How do you feel about that.

[Ahmadinner Jacket] Well, you see you son of a lizard.

[Larry King] uh, hehehehe, yes, I am part lizard. Can't you hear it in my voice. I'm the lizard king.

[Ahmadinner Jacket] Nevermind that. You see, I come from a long line of rats. Rats that don't shave. It is against my religion to be a shaven rat.

[Larry King] Did I ever tell you how I was saved by Aspirin and Garlique? No?

Glen said...

It's not worth it.

One night, on a ride back from Hyannisport, after we had all had a beer or two, a coworker who was a skilled joke teller, told a joke that struck the four of us in the car as particularly funny. The laughter would rise and fall, then start back, full voiced, and in the midst of the light hearted jocularity, one rider stated that he was having chest pains. He had a history of heart problems, so we stopped laughing instantly. Took him to the nearest ER, he was fine, but for a while we thought we had discovered the best joke in the world. Thought we were life immitating Monty Python. We weren't, thank goodness, and we all lived to laugh another day.

It is a little known fact that the original model for Mickey Mouse was in fact the silent screen star Marion Davies. Principally known as the mistress of William Randolph Hearst, she had a torrid affair with a young Walt Disney. He loved to call her his little mouse and had her dress up in a black leather mouse outfit when they had sex. Always laughing and game for anything, the young star enjoyed dressing up and having raucous sex in outdoor settings. They only broke up because of Walt's ambitions and she eventually drifted into an affair with Mr. Hearst to enhance her career. She later was Larry King’s third wife.

(1) Dr. Ruth Leavitt paid too much attention to the flashing lights.

Perhaps worth it but not good.

(2) Assaulted peanuts?

(3) Earnest Scribbler!

(4) Hey?! Where’s his laptop connected to teh intertubes?

(5) LEMON CURRY?

AAAANNNNDDDD ...

(Please, I beg you indulgence.)

(6) Not really so funny, but still one might ask, is it worth it?

(7) And there you have it!

That was a wonderful post Bissage.

Ahmadinejad gives interviews to the American press? Sort of refreshing.

Trooper York said...

Well he is their kind of guy. They share the same world view and all.

MadisonMan said...

One day Ahmadinejad will give and interview, and the next, maybe Sarah Palin!

*Michael* Palin does a great job keeping his eyes open while dead in that skit.

MadisonMan said...

Thank you, Prof. A, for letting me use two Palins in one post.

Trooper York said...

I mean the main stream media hates and disdains regular Americans, think the Palestinians got a raw deal, despises Israel and they don't think it's such a big deal if Iran gets a nuke. So really it's just preaching to the choir ya know.

It sort of like when Ryan Seacrest interviews Clay Aiken. Peas in a pod as you might say.

garage mahal said...

Yea, that's it Trooper.

Will said...

Good Lord... what is Tinkerbell trying to do to Ahmadinejad's crotch?

Trooper York said...

Thanks garage, glad you see it my way.

Hey how about those Packers? It's been a tough weekend for Madison eh?

garage mahal said...

I'll admit it was a tough game for the Pack for sure, exciting for people in Madison for the 8th ranked Badgers though. Met a friend downtown for lunch and a beer today, there's something totally unique about a college town atmosphere this time of year.

Trooper York said...

But what about a certain blonde professor bothering single men down by the lake. That had to be a tad uncomfortable don't ya think?

Trooper York said...

I mean snapping photos and muttering stuff about men wearing short pants.

Ooh, this is the visual equivalent of Mary Hart Syndrome.

Mary Hart Syndrome - An unidentified woman was proven to have been afflicted with an epileptic seizure caused by the voice of celebrity Mary Hart who co‑hosted the weekly syndicated news magazine program ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT. In 1991, news sources reported an epilepsy expert noted that it was probably the pitch and quality of the voice as a sound that caused the epileptic episodes. (Science News 140(3) p.45 July 20, 1991). When the woman stopped watching the show, the seizures stopped.

Afraid I'm lost!

Hey, anyone watching CNN -- Larry King interviewing Dinner Jacket?

I love the sarcastic translator, riffing on Ahmadinejad's resonse about the Holocaust.

"IF it HaPpEnedddddd, you mean. And if it happened in Europe, why make other people pay for it. Why not send the Jews to for example...Alaska"

Trooper York said...

Garage, scroll down about ten or so threads and you will get it.

Trooper York said...

Better yet, hit the emotional Althouse tag.

Let that be a lesson to you not to wear your shorts by the lake. Or feed the ducks. She will rat you out man.

David said...

Walt Disney got it on with Mickey Mouse? Finally, something that shocks me. Maybe Minnie Mouse. I can understand if he went after Minnie, but Mickey? Talk about cheezy>

Trooper York said...

Hey Walt was a complicated guy. Anybody that wanted to make vermin the symbol of his company is kinda on the strange side don't ya think.

Lawgiver said...

Oh yeah, the Packers played the Cowboys right?

I forgot, thanks for reminding me Trooper. I'm sure Jessica was happy to see Tony win. I know Eli got married but who was that dog he was hanging out with last Saturday? Maybe that's why the giants just squeaked by.

At least the real Hitler gives a damned that we still don't have gasoline in Middle Tennessee....

Hitler cares.

Verso said...

What a disgusting, revolting, racist pig, Ann's hero, Rush Limbaugh, now repeatedly calling Barack Obama an Arab.

This is why a lot of people think the Republican Party is just completely racist.

TRundgren said...

verso-

Rush is quoting a newspaper column quoting Democratic operatives.

But of course you and your buddies are too stupid for that kind of nuance.

BTW, why do Democrats hate women?

Lawgiver said...

This is why a lot of people think the Republican Party is just completely racist.

The word racist has been missused to such an extent that it has lost its meaning. You might as well call him a doo-doo head.

Someone needs to put forth the argument that the rich aren't going to pay taxes, now or ever.

There is no way to tax the rich and get revenue. Rich people put their money into tax shelters, foundations, blind trusts .....in which they can grow that money tax free and live off the interest. Trust funds.

So how does the government get revenue, when the rich put their money into shelters ???

THE MIDDLE CLASS !!!!

Those are the only people that you can put a tax increase onto, and actually collect.

By the way, 250K is not anywhere near wealthy in a State like California, where ramshackle run-down houses routinely overvalue at 1 million plus. Lots of people house rich and cash poor...with homes valued way over 250K.....Obama's gonna tax them to the hilt !

On what planet does Obama think that 250K equals wealthy ?

The rich will never pay taxes. Pensions aren't taxed. The only people that you can get money from via taxes are the non-pensioned working, and middle classes.

I hope McCain drives that point home. Anyone without a trust fund, or shelter is at risk under Obama's plan.

vbspurs said...

God swallow me up alive now. Maxine just made sense.

Eli Blake said...

maxine,

you are confusing owned assets with earned income. My cousin lives in Los Angeles and at least a year ago her property (a 1960's vintage small crackerbox house) was worth almost a million dollars-- almost all of that was the lot itself, not the home. She earns about 100K per year (her husband takes care of the kids.) She is actually doing pretty well for her neighborhood but is not a millionaire (house value notwithstanding.)

The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center analyzed both candidate's tax plans and concluded that 80% of taxpayers would pay less under Obama's plan than McCain's plan. I am one of those 80%. So if I were voting purely on self-interest it would make sense for me to vote for Obama.

Now, granted I have other reasons for voting but I am still voting for Obama because at least his plan for the economy doesn't keep changing. Right now we need a leader who can stick to a plan on the economy and McCain hasn't showed he can even stick to enunciating a consistent plan, let alone carry one out.

I'm so glad one man's plan can save us all and even up our income

Hoosier Daddy said...

Ahmadinejad gives interviews to the American press? Sort of refreshing.

Did Larry ask him if he has an Ipod?

I'm betting that's the toughest question Armageddonjad received. Then again, I'm betting Palin's religious views scares garage much more than the Iranian president's.

Now, granted I have other reasons for voting but I am still voting for Obama because at least his plan for the economy doesn't keep changing.

I would prefer an economic plan that changes with the performance of the economy. Consistency isn't necessarily a virture should conditions change. I believe Obama indicated that he would suspend his proposed tax increases if the economy was in a recession. Isn't that a change from his original platform?
