Today's Drudgtaposition: The dejection of men with famous penises.



Do you have a better interpretation?

The full headline under President Clinton is "Clinton Plays to High School Gym: Two-Thirds Empty." Under Brett Favre, "REPORT: Favre admits to voicemails."

If dejection persists for more than 4 hours see your physician.

Today's (and yesterday's) Altaposition: Drudge is fixated on gays and/or penises.

Maguro said...

Is it penises or penii? I can never remember.

Meade said...

And keep scrolling if you want to get to a real putz.

deborah said...

Deflated expectations.

Original Mike said...

Biden doesn't look dejected. He looks ...

Well, I don't know what that expression looks like.

It is probably because they read the report that the number of Americans earning more than 50 million fell, while those at the top increased their income from an average of 92.1 million to almost 519 million-- thus these 74 folks, who do not include Clinton or Favre and thus the dejection, earn as much as the l9 million lowest paid Americans. I guess most of us should hang our heads?

Ralph L said...

Two men who can't believe their careers are over.

Does the NFL keep a dick expert (aka a gay man) on retainer to verify whose thang was sent?

MrBuddwing said...

To crib a line from Hot Air: It's Come to This.

Word verification: giderag.

Quayle said...

Poor Bill Clinton, one reckless Dem president is killing the Democrat brand that he tried to hard to build.

They're the party of McGovern, Carter, and David Dinkins now.

traditionalguy said...

Drudge is being a little hard on the cocksure men today.

"Sammy: See... I grew up idolizing guys like Fonzie and Vinnie Barbarino because they got a lot of chicks. You know what happened to Fonzie and Vinnie Barbarino?

Robbie: Yeah, I read that Fonzie wants to be a director and Barbarino, I think... the mechanical bull movie? I didn't see it yet.

Sammy: Their shows got canceled. Because no one wants to see a fifty-year-old guy hitting on chicks.

Virg Bernero's appearance with Bill Clinton at noon Sunday at Detroit's Renaissance High School wasn't announced till 5pm Friday.

I'm going to suggest that reasons for the light turn out were

1. Virg Bernero
2. Detroit
3. Noon Sunday
4. Less than two days notice.

Deflated expectations.

Stagflated expectations?

ricpic said...

Thought balloon over Bill's head: How do I sell Hillary as a more effective communist than Barry to my fellow Democrats and then turn around and sell her as a centrist to the yokels?

Joaquin said...

FlS again being predictably boring.

former law student said...

Unfortunately I can never measure up to joaquin's "LOL! She doesn't look a day over 115! " which still causes me to slap my knee when I think of it.

edutcher said...

I don't think Willie is as famous for his member as the alleged kink in it (which apparently runs throughout his being).

And Willie thought it was all about him. I can just hear it, "...but it was ME, not that guy who'd be servin' coffee if'n Ah had mah way".

Maguro said...

Is it penises or penii? I can never remember.

Penes. Forget which declension it is.

Original Mike said...

Biden doesn't look dejected. He looks ...

Well, I don't know what that expression looks like.


He's thinking he may get to be POTUS, after all.

Sixty Grit said...

Old dudes who don't know when to quit, go away and never be seen again.

EDH said...

Do you have a better interpretation?

Famous men with dejected penises?

Original Mike said...

I think Biden looks like Howard Dean portraying the Joker.

bgates said...

I don't know what that expression looks like.

I do, though I'm not the first to recognize that expression.

garage mahal said...

I met a fairy today that granted me one wish.

"I want to live forever," I said.

"Sorry" said the fairy, "I'm not allowed to grant wishes like that!"

"Fine" I said, "I want to die after the Vikings win the Super Bowl!"

"You crafty bastard," said the fairy.

Clyde said...

What the heck, how about another Frank Sinatra video?

Call me irresponsible - call me unreliable
Throw in undependable too
Do my foolish alibis bore you?
Well I'm not too clever - I just adore you...

Clyde said...

The earlier one, by the way, is down on the post from yesterday with the autumn leaves. "It Was A Very Good Year" seemed appropriate.

Quaestor said...

Maguro's question got me to thinking about the Latinate origin of the word, specifically what declension it belongs to and thus the plural. I've since learned that penis = tail and belongs to the third declension, it least according to The Straight Dope. However, I still have my doubts because my distant memories of Latin informs me that the third declension (entirely neuter gendered nouns) all form the singular with -um and the plural with -a. Case in point being the byte which is data while the single bit is datum. So the next time the boss says "Mergatroyd, you data is bogus!" you can take satisfaction in the knowledge that your employer is ignorant lout unfit even to polish your boots.

Well, whatever the declension (I suspect its one of those irregular nouns that even confused Cicero from time to time) the plural is penes. So there!

Now the Latin antecedent has an unexpected consequence. Specifically when someone is said to have "gotten some tail" that someone is more than likely to be female, which inverts the colloquialism entirely.

I also learned that the term for the organ in Middle English, before the Latinate word became commonplace was yard, which suggests pathological self-esteem was a bigger problem in Chaucer's day than it is now. Either that or the universe is expanding at a much faster rate than modern physics estimates.

BTW, the Romans didn't use their word for tail as a euphemism for the male organ. Their term was mentula when they intended a scandalous connotation and verpa when being polite. Both are second declension nouns and thus feminine gendered, which proves the Romans could be as ornery as anybody else.

RV:

"19 million lowest paid Americans".

How many of those 19 million work? and how many work full-time? I mean it's easy to play games with statistics. What is the average earnings of the bottom 19 million who worked a full-time job? That would be a much more meaningful number afterall I bet your "19 million lowest" includes high school and college kids, part-time workers, etc.

NotYourTypicalNewYorker said...

Biden has a "I can't fuckin' believe I'm here!" look on his face.

Original Mike said...

Brett Favre: Pants on the ground.

AJ Lynch said...

That is Biden reacting when he learned his IQ is half of Dick Cheyney's...."so that explains why they call me Slow Joe!"

Pogo said...

Biden looks like the Joker.

Curtiss said...

It's all in the hands.

Again.

And yes, Biden does look like "The Joker".

BJM said...

@R-V

WFT are you babbling about?

Crazy-eyes & tiny fists plus the poster boy for a bad face lift...wow, just wow.

The wire services are not happy with the WH.

traditionalguy said...

It is a grey and rainy Monday in Georgia...and now we also have to contemplate old men's penises failing them. A very cruel posting indeed. Let's talk about the glory days when men ruled the worlds of sports and politics with a penis and a will to power.

k*thy said...

Thanks, Garage. I'm passing that along.

A.W. said...

well, and you don't know this, but that picture of favre? he is totally exposing himself under that flap in the front.

Penny said...

Althouse has me playing the Drudgtaposition game now, and even before she posts!

Good call on Willie and Brett. I totally agree. Please don't miss the wikileaks guy, though. He is bragging about his girth! May he go the way of the other two.

As for that picture of Biden? My first thought was that Drudge had juxtaposed Mickey Rourke's smile on Joe Biden's face. That smile looks seriously altered, if not by Drudge, then by some plastic surgery. I also thought he looked like the joker, but now that I read other comments here, EDH's observation seems about right:

"I think Biden looks like Howard Dean portraying the Joker."

Jeremy said...

What is the "Queen's" bizarre infatuation with Matt Drudge?

Doesn't she know it makes her look like a dummy?

Jeremy said...

Ralph L said..."Two men who can't believe their careers are over."

Favre played last night. Get out of the trailer much?

And anybody who thinks President Bill Clinton's career is over is...well, a teabagging suck up.

Jeremy said...

With all of the news breaking via WikiLeaks, relating to Bush, Rummy and others lying through their teeth, leading to 1,000's of Americans killed and wounded...and the local teabaggers (spurred on by the Queen and her trusty sidekick hubby, Needy) spend their day sucking on Matt Drudge?

What a sad crew.

MamaM said...

And Jeremy's bizarre infatuation with the Queen?

If concern over looking like a dummy doesn't stop Jeremy in his dejection why believe it matters to anyone else?

garage mahal said...

Thanks, Garage. I'm passing that along.

Welcome!

I don't how many others picked up the comments from fans from mics on the field last night. I have surround sound, and my rear channel was picking up some choice stuff around the field last night. I almost felt a little bit sorry for Favre. Almost.

traditionalguy said...

Jeremy...Bravo! Those were short and to the point slurs. We would miss reading such succinct slandering skills without you. In fact you are the Hemmingway of slander fiction.

Jeremy said...

To - Mama (Grizzly?) and her widdle baby Tradional Dick sidekick:

And the defense of the Queen (and of course, Needy and Matt) takes hold!!

Good work little teabagger soldiers.

Good work!!

*When you get a chance to pull your heads out of their asses...why not post something of relevance.

traditionalguy said...

Jeremy...That was beautiful slander! We can always count on you.

Meade said...

Jermery: You know, do me a favor. Could say 'Mister Needy' instead of just 'Needy'? It's just a thing, I worked so hard to get that title, so I'd appreciate it. Thank you.

Jeremy said...

Needy...where would you be without the Queen?

And as for the "MR." title...sorry, but marrying someone isn't quite enough to garner any such recognition. Now, if you could somehow Speaker of the United States House of Representatives I might consider the possibility...but we all know that ain't happening soon...right?

You'll always be just a Needy little teabagger to me.

Jeremy said...

Traditional Weenie - What "slander?"

I speak the truth.

rhhardin said...

Lautreamont, not about what it seems to be about:

Jeremy said...

Oh, gosh...before the rush to whine, I guess I better correct a typo:

Now, if you could somehow (become) Speaker of the United States House of Representatives I might consider the possibility...but we all know that ain't happening soon...right?

Save the keystrokes.

Jeremy said...

rhhardin - got a little time on your hands?

Fen said...

Ha. You know the Libtards are desperate when SockPuppet Jeremy comes out.

Jeremy said...

Fen - Rehab just let out?

Still high on those dangling in the mouth testicles?

Why do you spend so much time sucking up to the regulars here, and so little time posting anything relevant or worthwhile?

They already know you're a teabagger...so what's the point?

*Oh, wait...is the Queen still handing out cookies to her favs?

traditionalguy said...

Jeremy...I take it that you accidentally complemented me as a "weiner" in this post of men with famous penises.In this world of weiners and losers, you have to try so hard. The slander angle is false guilt that you appointed yourself to accuse Althousians of bearing. Using Drudge Report in a game of juxtaposed images is fun. Using a super nice commenter like Meade to say ugly things about only wins you the Alan Grayson Talent Award.

Jeremy...And again, we have last year's bet on Palin winning the GOP's nomination, and I am looking good. Would you like to go double or nothing on whether Palin ends the reign of King Obama I ?
