Barocky Road...

Postby D Comeaux » Thu Aug 29, 2013 12:59 pm

Doc1.jpg


In honor of the 44th President of the United States, Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream has introduced a new flavor: Barocky Road

Barocky Road is a blend of half vanilla, half chocolate, and surrounded by nuts and flakes. The vanilla portion of the mix is not openly advertised and usually denied as an ingredient. The nuts and flakes are all plentiful.

The cost is $92.84 per scoop...so, out of a $100 bill, you are at least promised some CHANGE.

When purchased, it will be presented to you in a large beautiful cone, but after you pay for it, the ice cream is taken out of the cone and given to the person in line behind you at no charge.

You are left with an almost-empty wallet, staring at an empty cone and wondering what just happened. Then you realize this is what "redistribution of wealth" is all about.

Aren't you just stimulated?

Neither's ticklin' my funny bone, but go figure laughs, I guess. The cone idea COULD be funny, and for all the presidents, like you say.......... this one (and the B&J) just seems lame to me :huh:

The lack of humor is perfectly matched to the situation.

We'll stick with the good ideas and you can stick with the good humor :thumbsup:

I believe that's who makes the Barocky Road.

Bad News About Grandpa......................

An elderly man had a massive heart attack and the family drove him to the emergency room. After a while the ER doctor appeared wearing a long face.

"I'm afraid Grandpa is “brain-dead”, but his heart is still beating."

"Oh, Dear God," cried his wife, "We've never had a liberal in the family before!"

A little better, although it's kind of a formula joke, like this one:
This little old lady calls 911. When the operator answers she yells, "Help, send the police to my house right away! There's a dang Democrat on my front porch and he's playing with himself."

"What?" the operator exclaimed. "I said there is a Democrat on my front porch playing with himself and he's weird; I don't know him and I'm afraid! Please send the police!" the little old lady repeated.

"Well, now, how do you know he's a Democrat?"

"Because, you dang fool, if it was a Republican, he'd be screwing somebody!"

Unrelated tangent on feeding animals. On the way to work I stopped to take a picture of a pair of mute swans with 7 nearly grown signets with my crappy cellphone camera so I had to get kind of close. One of the adults starts moving my way pretty quick and I was starting to think :eek: am I going to get my ass whooped by a swan but then it got close and stopped and the whole family swam over and I'm pretty sure they were thinking where's the bread.

I did this to send to my wife's friend who has never seen a swan. These are almost in her back yard, so I hope she stops by and looks at them. They are some damn big birds. We have a lot where I hunt and the fly by all the time. We just can't hunt them here :sad:

Also on this tangent, the koi pond where I work now has at least 4 snapping turtles that come over to eat food tossed in for the carp. It just seems funny to see 4 full grown snappers climbing over each other to eat bread.

When I was 12 me and my buddy were rowing around the "lagoon" inshore of Misquamicut down at the RI shore when we spotted a bunch of cygnets (your spellchecker messed you up on that one, huh?) and scooped one into the boat. In a flash, the two parents appeared. Mom (I think) swimming away with the family, while Dad beat the living daylights out of my friend in the front of the rubber raft while he tried fending him off with one of those cheap little plastic oars. He looked like he'd been in a bar fight afterwards. But the worst part is ever since, whenever I come across the "Leda and the Swan" myth, all I can picture is poor Bobby Dingle, being assaulted by the white feathered terror. :lol3: :lol3:

Must be democrat swans. Did you mention "Sharing the wealth around"? :lol3: :lol3: :lol3:



Oh, wait, I just re-read your story... No way anything democrat could be mistaken as 'mute'. Democrat swans would be banging their tin cups demanding their fair share. That happens whenever I go down and visit San Francisco. I've taken to bringing a few loaves of day old bread so the kids can feed the flocks of people that come right up to the car windows. Better than going to the zoo, except the smell is that much worse.

This was a year or two ago.
Chicago Kayaker Killed After Swan Attack
Hensley tried to make his way back to shore as the swans continued their chase. Eye witnesses tell the Sun Times that by the time rescue workers arrived on the scene Hensley had already drowned.

They are some big birds. I definitely wouldn't want to tangle with them in the water. When they swim by and my dog is sitting there quivering wanting to get after them, I tell her that I just don't think it will turn out the way she thinks. :no:

I'm fine with calling it a tie.

That's why you vote for the guy promising to do the least.

The problem with the TK solution is that if the person you vote for never wins it is like voting for dog crap.

So yes writing yourself in would be the person that will do the least, but you have to be practical and that means voting out whomever you can in the primary, as long as you are surely not shooting yourself in the foot, and then voting for the one promising the least in the general. We repeat that for a generation and things there will be change, not that you can believe in, but that you desire.

I'd love to see a wide spread push by the libertarians to field candidates in every Democrat and every Republican primary in the country. The slow-type left-wing libertarian would be a vast improvement over the establishment Democrats and the Ron Paul's would be a vast improvement over the establishment Republicans.

That's how the libertarians could change American for the better and have more influence than the dog crap I need to go clean up in my back yard.

Last winter I think I put up a video in here that showed a trio of whistlers swimming very purposefully (and FAST) toward my dog as he retrieved a mark in Lake Washington. I got a little nervous but didn't call him back, and everything worked out OK (no nests in January). But they came real close, as if they were curious. Now it makes me nervous thinking about it
Here it is, but the approach/attack or whatever the hell it was doesn't happen 'til near the end (it also has a lot of elementary waterfowl id because I shot it for non-hunting friends):
