No doubt a reaction to Barefoot Venus Mustard Bath.

Are we sure that is a dog and not a cat? Some one put lipstick on a figurine of something that looks like a gargoyle. It can't be a fertility idol, so it must be a gag gift.

Is that a partisan annoyance tongue or a bad sandwich tongue? I vote the former. Annoying animals with teeth is dangerous. Annoying animals with tongues feels transgressive but has historically been safe.

Since Obama puts his personal Logo on all his publications, why not use this "Long Tongue" as the logo for Sara Palin's loyal opposition faceBook messages directed at Obama?

Here's a nice quick video combining two of my favorite things: Obama mockery and They Might Be Giants. (h/t Iowahawk.)

I have suffered an unacceptable defeat that I will long regret.

I'm interested in getting a Large Green Egg. It's a bar-b-cue grill/smoker that is basically a kiln shaped like a … well, you get the idea. New, they're exorbitantly priced, ridiculous, actually. So I've been watching Craigslist expecting I might find one slightly reduced. Thing is, owners form something of a cult so they're rarely if ever resold. I've been watching for months. Then, on Friday I noticed one while looking for something else. The full deal with all the extra implements for a mere $300.00 which is a good 1/5 the cost new and even a better deal with all the extra junk to go with it.

Man, the things I could do with that thing. It attains 800℉ easily and remain cool to the touch. So breads, pizzas, all that is possible, along with slow cool controlled smoking. They're awesome.

The seller demanded cash. At the FRB a check is considered cash. Economically, it is categorized under M1, but in the world at large cash is that paper stuff with presidents' pictures on them. Only.

I have the cash, but not in the form the seller demanded. I had $100.00 presidential paper cash in my apartment and another $100.00 in my wallet. This was Saturday night and too late to get more from my accounts on the spot. (Oh bloody wow. I just now realized I could have used the bank's ATM. Why oh why didn't I think of that?) I wrote expressing intense interest. Seller provided directions. We arranged to meet first thing Monday. Sunday he wrote back telling me it was sold.

* weeps uncontrollably inside *
* composes self *
* kicks own ass for not keeping more cash at home *

Have you ever tried kicking your own ass? It's not easy. It requires a backwards heel-kick that jeopardizes balance. I'll never see another deal like that. They just don't happen.

Maneki Neko, you're doing it wrong.

(unless that figure's meant to beckon folks into shops that offer 'tongue bath' services)

(shouldn't there be a medical marijuana like loophole for medical tongue baths, I'm sure there are demonstrative mental and physiological benefits)

Getting ready to take my 2 kids and niece and nephew to the annual Halloween Children's Parade. The kids get to follow the high school marching band, who all get dressed up in costumes and play The Addams Family theme song.

I have a 2-yr-old Tinkerbell with devil horns, a 4-year old Spiderman, a 5-yr old Robot Princess, and a 7-yr old who's too cool to wear a costume, but will march anyway.

The long tongue never hurts, Frank Lee, but never underestimate the value of an eclectic salt shaker dowry.

Did you know that salt is a natural mood enhancer?

Sprinkle generously, and often.
